Listen up, Lynsay Sands' Historical Fans. Her first historical in two years is out! And she goes back to her early roots with The Chase. The Deed was her first book and The Key her second. The Chase takes up after those two books bringing back characters from them.
Set in late 1300s, King Richard commands by royal decree that Blake Sherwell "Angel" must wed with is somewhat less than ladylike lady, Seonid Dunbar. The betrothal made years earlier, neither side now wants the marriage to proceed, but Richard is determined so there is little Blake can do but go claim his Scottish lass. Blake is none to happy to trek all the way to the Highlands to find 'sweet' Seonid has slipped off and taken sanctuary with the nuns at St. Simmians. Blake is not a happy camper, and heads to take back his bride. He does this, but the infuriating female escapes again, and soon gives Blake a merry chase all over the Highlands. As he chases his bride-to-be, he begins to admire her spirit, sharp mind and even her stubbornness, and is soon falling for his warrior-lady-betrothed. Seonid also comes to a grudging admiration of the handsome knight. As they'd gone trooping over hill and dale, she comes to believe "Angel" just might be man enough to have a strong bride. Only how does one "throw in the towel" when the chase is proving so much fun?
This is a long drink after the dry spell of no Lynsay Historicals, and a great sequel to The Deed and the Key. Great new Lynsay's Vamp fan - look for Lissianna Argeneau's story sometime next year, but her historical fans will not have to wait so long for more of her laugh out loud delightful historical tales either.
It's typically Lynsay all the way - thank goodness!

While I love the Argeneau's and eagerly awaiting more of the funny vamp family, I am thrilled to finally get another historical from the queen of the funny tales.
This one is charming tales of characters from the first two Sands books The Deed and The Key. There is to be a wedding, but neither groom nor bride is thrilled with the prospects. Just as the groom decides she might not be so bad after all, the bride takes a powder and dashes across Scotland one step ahead of the groom in hot pursuit.
It's great fun and I really and glad to know more historicals will soon be on the horizon.

I challenge anyone not to like a Lynsay Sands book, whether it is a paranormal or historical romance. Another amazing read by Lynsay Sands. I love her historical romances, this one in particular. So much so I stayed up to the early hours not wanting to put it down. So many funny and romantic twists and turns, with a bit of sword play thrown into the mix. If you love historical romances then you will love this book. 5 * :)

I liked this book, but found it had too much "chase", after a while it becomes tiresome, I enjoyed the fact that the girl was really tough and could really defend herself, still a four star story.

I loved the characters and the storyline, it was funny and made me laugh. Will definitely put it in my favourites and enjoy reading it again. The only thing was the really cheesy front cover.
