My Wild Highlander by Vonda Sinclair ~Review~

My Wild Highlander by Vonda Sinclair is the second book in the Highland Adventure series. Angelique is the ward of King James and he has decided to marry her off to a Scotsman with a reputation with the ladies–which she herself has witnessed. She will not give in to this man easily. Lachlan has saved the King’s favorite and now gets a reward and that is Lady Angelique. She is the heir to a clan in Scotland, but there are others who want it for themselves. Little does Lachlan know that Angelique has a difficult past, one that she isn’t too keen on revealing. She is in danger from all around her and while she isn’t too fond of Lachlan, he knows he must protect her.

I absolutely loved the first book in the series, My Fierce Highlander, and have been dying to dive more into this series. These books are on the steamy side. This book also does contain instances of rape and abuse so just a warning for readers. I appreciated that the author showed the terror and pain behind sexual assault but I think handled it wrong in regards to her future relationships. At one point, Lachlan ties her up to show her how love is supposed to be and she was very much against it. Granted, he was not aware that she was raped before she knew him but he still should have respected her wishes and realized that something was wrong. That felt like it did more damage than helped her. However, besides that one scene, I thought the book was fine.

I do love the enemies to lovers trope. I saw a lot of reviews that complained about how she took so long to trust Lachlan and I am sitting here like… “how is that surprising?” I am glad she didn’t give in right away, she has every right to be skeptical of him. I do have to say, the MVP of this story is her friend, Camille. Angelique wouldn’t have made it very far without her and I really hope Camille gets her own story!

With danger around every corner, this book does keep at a very fast pace! While this isn’t my favorite in the series so far, I can’t wait to see what happens next. I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars!
