Except for trying to weave a little more liveliness into her style, my only other suggestion would be for the dialogue spoken by English characters Evelinde and Mildrede be read with an English accent and all the way through the book, not just here and there while switching back to a Scottish accent for the Scots. The lack of appropriate accents didn't ruin the audiobook experience for me, but it would have made it a touch better. As I said earlier, I can be certain that I'll enjoy it, no matter what.
No one - die hard fans maybe, they might be able to hear the humor behind the dreadful narration. What other book might you compare Devil of the Highlands to and why? Most of Lynsay Sands books as long as they are not read by amateur narrators. Check the producers and they have done any other books, also check the narrators for other books and reviews. How did the narrator detract from the book? The narrator was obviously an amateur as it seemed that she was using the finger pointing technique, I also believe this to be the case due the numerous hesitations and missed words.
Punctuation was all over the place leading to confusion of what was actually going on. They, the narrator and producers, seem to have little understanding of the humor in the book leading me to believe that the producers and their chosen narrator had not read the book prior to recording it. The narrator's accent was lovely and gentle however the inability to be consistent with characters voices was horrendous. Sadly it was very hard to understand the story and I had to concentrate very hard to have my usual laugh when listening to a Lynsay Sands's book.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment? Headache trying to understand through the narration. I listen to a lot of Audiobooks from many different Narrators and Producers, I have only run across one book that was so poorly narrated. I think that Authors and their Agents need to have legal recourse over the publication of Audiobooks. This Audiobook is a clear example where a fun book is turned into a very bad product.
This reflects directly on the author and will have an impact, however slight,on their reputation and on their current and future sales. Yes this is a harsh review and some reviewers were OK with the narration however I as far as I'm concerned this is a poor product in relation to all but one of my Audible purchases. Preface: I am a Lynsay Sands fan. I like her humor and her way of story telling.
Story: I found myself laughing out loud many times in this story. Without many spoilers, the situations that the characters find themselves in were nicely orchestrated. Good times. Reader: I liked the Scottish burr, but it wasn't consistent. She was pretty monotone and did not use consistence voices for the characters, although sometimes it seemed like she tried. I really loved the story and only finished the book because of this but the Narrator voice was awful! Her voice made me think of a school child reading for the class.
I seem to be in the minority here, but I particularly enjoyed the narrator. There was occasional inconsistency in the character voices, but over all it was lovely to listen too. She has a distinct Scottish accent which added to the story. I'll admit that I read and enjoyed this book before getting the audio book, and I enjoyed it very much, but I am a fan of Lynsay Sands' books.
The story of this book kept me interested enough in the book to put up with the terrible narrator. She has a very interesting accent but she is very monotone. Narrator needs new day job. Narration was so awful I couldn't stand to complete the audio. The narrators voice is so bad it sent me to sleep and I had to rewined all the time.
What a shame because the story is good. Will not buy again with this narrator again. BUT I wanted to shake the narrator to wake up and get some life into her reading I have listened to all three books in the series, I really enjoyed the stories I hope their will be more from this series as I really liked the characters.

Patricia Awful narrator, silly story Would you try another book written by Lynsay Sands or narrated by Marianna Palka? Rebecca Eeyore Thought the story is fun, the narration is just about the very worst I've ever heard.
I have been reading Lynsay Sands Argeneau series for quite a while and had come to a point of needing a new series. This is proving to be very good. Not just and insipid love story, but a Who Done it as well. Love it. Verified purchase: Yes Condition: pre-owned Sold by: mtwyouth.
It's a good quick read. The mystery over rides the romance. So for me, it was so so. Verified purchase: Yes Condition: pre-owned Sold by: discover-books. Skip to main content.

I loved how the characters got to know each other. They weren't separated by a plot device, and they didn't hold back from each other because they were afraid of their feelings.
They truly interacted with each other, getting to know the good and the bad, and fell in love! Evelinde was a sweet, talkative lady, who was very accident prone! However, she was also very intelligent and was usually able to get herself out of the sticky situations even before her husband arrived to help. I loved Cullen, talk about the strong, silent type!

His motto seemed to be 'actions speak louder than words. Yes, the beginning has some silly parts that might not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed the funny scenes and would've liked the silliness and humor to continue for the entire book. However, in the last portion of the book, the romance really took a backseat to the murder that Cullen was accused of as the Devil of Donnachaidh.
Although the mystery was well done and I didn't even see the culprit coming, I wanted more romance! Sadly, Cullen seemed to turn into a background character as Evelinde solved the mystery. I loved the first part of this book, the humor and genuine feelings between the characters was such a relief to read.
I was just disappointed in the end because it focused too much on the mystery. I will definitely look for more historical romance by Lynsay Sands in the future. View all 12 comments. Lord deliver me from dead exes! I am so tired of reading books where the dead ex becomes a secondary character because they are discussed so much.
In this book the death of his first wife was a mystery to be solved so she was discussed a lot.

This book was strange. The beginning started off with almost ridiculous comedy. Frustratingly so. While the scenes were funny, it was just so OTT that I was more exasperated than amused. S Lord deliver me from dead exes! She does not necessarily go do things to purposely put herself in harms way, but she lacks all common sense and is so clumsy it is ridiculous. Maybe in a different mood, I would have been more amused.
Cullen is absolutely one of the most frustrating heroes ever. He barely says two words to her. He talks to others, but never to Evelinde. He genuinely sees no reason to. He thinks his actions should speak for him. At first I could not figure out if he were 16 or 70, he was so inept at dealing with a woman. And he had been married! I finally deduced that he was 31 so he should have been able to carry on a conversation at this point in his life. Being so obtuse, he was insensitive, unthinking, uncaring and, in general, a jackass to Evelinde.
She tried hard to no avail. At some point a friend told him he needed to speak to her, so, calling it his "duty" to speak to her, he continues to remind himself of his "duty", when before he would not speak. Romantic huh? Somehow they end up working through their issues. I just did not feel it. I cannot understand what she ever saw in him.

Technically not cheating - but it was a little inappropriate for my taste. His wife is dead for 2 years. He loved her. More in a brotherly way, but was happy with her. He still has his wife's chest of clothes in his bedroom and because he neglects to give Evelinde anything to wear she has to wear the dead wife's dress. View all 19 comments.

I mean, okay, the part where he tripped and fell and his mouth accidentally landed on her nipple as a literal plot point was funny, and the fact that her nipple was described as "trembling" was funnier, but then it all just went embarrassment squicky.
For the characters, for the author. I still have opinions, though! Of course I have opinions. Two people, he defined by his nasty reputation, her by. I got nothing here. She was a woman? And they have improbably good sex like a couple of blow-up dolls. Only in the case of this romance novel, the background gestures at context involve an arranged marriage and something something family secrets something.
Instead of, say, a cheerleader selling cookies knocking on the door of a lonely middle-aged guy. The point being that these people are so empty, so arbitrarily jerked around a farce of a story.

Evelinde has incurred enough torment under the abusive watch of her step-mother, but her latest act of arranging her marriage to the Devil, Laird of Donnachaidh could seal her fate forever. Evelinde is not sure what is worse, staying with her step-mother and the cruelty or marrying a man who is legendary for his brutality with rumors surrounding of the underhanded way he took over as Laird of his clan.
Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh has lived his life with integrity, he is a fair man to those that Evelinde has incurred enough torment under the abusive watch of her step-mother, but her latest act of arranging her marriage to the Devil, Laird of Donnachaidh could seal her fate forever. Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh has lived his life with integrity, he is a fair man to those that know him, but he has never wasted his time trying to discredit rumors.
When he happens upon Evelinde she has no idea who he is, her carefree manner and lack of clothing keep Cullen intrigued. He plans to wed and bed her quickly before heading back to his castle, but after a rocky start he finds a protectiveness that has never happened before for his sweet Evelinde.
Enjoyable story, Evelinde is sweet and you see glimpses of a temper. Cullen is quiet and tries to show Evelinde how he feels through his actions but the two don't seem to connect where that is concerned, for Evelinde expects words and lets her mind ramble worrying about what Cullen thinks, whereas Cullen is dedicated to her heart and soul and doesn't realize she doesn't understand that. Not as sassy as some of the highlander stories I have read, but I think the next couple of books will get better as it goes along. My first by this author so I don't have anything to compare it to.
It was OK, but the writing style seamed very simple. I don't mind that style when the story is humorous, but this wasn't a particularly funny read.
Odd and amusing, but not funny. It kind of felt like I was reading a childrens book if not for all of the sex. The hero and heroine were not the brightest people either, both repeatedly making poor decisions with obvious consequences. No author is for everyone, and for me I think she My first by this author so I don't have anything to compare it to.
No author is for everyone, and for me I think she is simply not my cup-of-tea. View all 5 comments. The plot: The year is Guess what? Cullen a. The Devil of the Highlands isn't really as evil as the rumors about him suggest. Plus, there is a murder mystery. Third, I am actually sitting here wondering how so many people on this website appear to have genuinely enjoyed reading this book. It's okay. Not everyone can write comedy, and those who can't shouldn't. She is daft. Very, very daft.
But, for every bad book I have read, I have always found some little truism or bit of prose that I like or agree with, and that kind of redeems the book for me a little bit. In this book, there was nothing like that unless you count a few unintended laugh out loud moments, and I don't. View all 3 comments.

It was not great, but it was good and I enjoyed it. Lynsay Sands is new for me and I will look forward to more of her works. Overall an Ok read.

When Evelinde discovers her nasty stepmother has spitefully arranged a marriage to the Devil of Donnachaidh, she is at once frightened and resigned to her fate. But the last laugh is on her stepmother because Cullen is not the brutal man the wild rumors say he is.
In fact, quite the opposite- and when the two secretly meet under less than formal circumstances, Evelinde quickly assesses the situation and decides not to let her stepmother in on it. Cullen is no dummy and his instant attraction to E When Evelinde discovers her nasty stepmother has spitefully arranged a marriage to the Devil of Donnachaidh, she is at once frightened and resigned to her fate.
When they arrive at Cullen's castle they know little of each other than an instinct that tells them something is right about the match and the unbridled passion he teaches her every night is something to hold onto. Although she doesn't know if she should trust him, she begins to fall in love with the man of few words she's married to.
However, one dark cloud has arisen- Evelinde begins to suspect the body count that surrounds Cullen is not as innocuous as has been purported and she determines she must suss out the culprit Mostly because there was no contrived plot device to keep them apart- they loved each other from the moment they met and they knew it.
But that doesn't mean there was no tension. No, the tension came from their clearly defined personalities and that's what made this novel so refreshing to me. The assassination attempts fit in well with their story and though it could be excised and not be missed, I found the eventual killer to be a surprise- but that's only because I was so wrapped up in Cullen and Evelinde to pay close enough attention to who the murderer was. I recommend this one for a fun, fast read and a change of pace from the plethora of Scottish historical romances that are out there.

Highland Devil, Hannah Howell
A lot of people think that the Duncan is the one to blame. Maybe she was better off with her stepmom… Cullen thought taking a second wife would be just what the kingdom needed. Now, however, he thinks he has bitten off more than he can chew. Although she talks waaay too much, he is already too fond of her to let anything happen.
But who can he trust to protect her? He has been silent for far too long. Somebody is responsible and they are going to pay. I really enjoyed this book — more than I thought I would. I never have been terribly fond of historical romances. Getting back on topic, Lynsay Sands likes to incorporate humor into her novels, and I love her for it. The predicaments that Cullen found Evelinde in made me laugh out loud.
I think she also did a fantastic job pacing the storyline. And the latter part, the characters begin to figure out who is behind all the tragedies — as well as the reader. I was soooo wrong. I was aggravated that my suspect was not the culprit, but it made the book that much better. So, why am I only rating it three stars? Nothing really blew me away — other than the culprit reveal. It just means it was a quick, fun read that I probably will never visit again.

Overall rating: 4. How, awesome is that? I liked this book. It started off with some awesome passion, and then there was some mystery added in, and I was a goner. Cullen really got me from the first meeting. I also really liked the mystery aspect of this novel. This book kept me on my toes, kept me thinking, and kept me falling for Cullen.
