Book 2 of the Highland Adventure Series - Lachlan and Angelique's story
Released August 26, 2011
Note: Each book of the series is a stand-alone romance.
Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection.
Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him—Angelique. Can he break through her icy façade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?

5 Stars, Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews
My Wild Highlander was a great read. Lachlan, the main character, is Alasdair's brother from the first book in the series. Lachlan is being rewarded by the English King for his help in stopping a plot earlier on. He is betrothed to Lady Angelique, who hates men. She has had a bad past with men and so does not trust them at all. She wants someone that she can control but that is not who she gets in Lachlan. Angelique is very smart and she is very determined. Lachlan likes Angelique and wants to actually have a marriage with her but is not sure how to go about winning her over. He knows that she does not like him and men but is not sure what has happened to make her this way or how to get around it.
Lachlan has a lot of ground to cover. He now has to deal with the men that he is now Lord over and his wife. It is great to watch him figure out how to do this. He is definitely a romantic and wants to win his wife's trust and love. Angelique is trying to protect herself and so denies what she feels and tries to not feel anything for him. Lachlan and Angelique have chemistry from the very beginning and Lachlan teaches Angelique that sex is fine and good. The sex is explicit but is not overly so. I really enjoyed all of the emotion that is in the book and how it develops. There is plenty of action in this story. It definitely keeps you guessing what's going to happen next and it helps the characters admit their emotions sometimes. I loved the mix of romance and action. Night Owl Reviews
"If you love a highland romance like I do, you won’t want to miss My Wild Highlander! As I live and breathe, Ms. Sinclair has the know-how and a definite knack for writing highland romances. I always fall in love with her heroes immediately and then, of course, I just can’t put her books down. Nor can I wait for the next one and I’m like a cat on a hot tin roof, impatiently waiting for yet one more hunky hero.
The hero and heroine in My Wild Highlander are highly argumentative, but wildly romantic (which I love!). Lachlan is very protective of Angelique, but really doesn’t want a wife, which make for fun times between the two of them. For a while, the kisses are few, but when they happen, they’re explosive. Lachlan always wants more, but Angelique doesn’t. She’s perfectly fine with just his kisses, but it’s very comical to see Lachlan “warm” Angelique to his desires. He’s a real charmer and you’ll adore him from the start.
The sex doesn’t happen right away, but the journey to that final marital consummation is well worth reading. Lachlan finally seduces her and Angelique finds out just how wild her highland husband can be (ooh la la)! The by-play between the characters is comical and the sex is smokin’ hot. There were many times I got that hot-and-bothered feeling and who wants to read a romance without some of that? Ms. Sinclair is one of my new favorite authors and this one will nab you for sure. Yep, it’s a keeper!"
- Rated 5 Delightful Divas and a Recommended Read by Shelly!
"Who doesn't secretly long for a sensual, wild Scottish highland warrior like Lachlan? He is easily one of my favourite characters created by the very talented Vonda Sinclair...The multiple layers of his personality shine through, easily highlighting this author's superb talent and imagination. We see his passionate side, his gentle and caring side especially when it comes to his two small sons, we witness his fiercely protective side and his unerring loyalty and bravery. We watch as this complex character undergoes a complete transformation, going from an irresponsible and wildly womanizing man to the fierce chief and dedicated husband...Angelique is the perfect heroine in this, her fiery and independent nature is exactly right. Yet again Vonda Sinclair gives her gift to us all wrapped up in suspense, passion and intrigue. This author truly is a master of the written word and I look forward to reading her work for many years to come." Emma, Reader
"If you love highlanders, steamy love scenes, great characters, and action then you will love My Wild Highlander by Vonda Sinclair... It’s such the perfect story for two people with different pasts coming together. Those who love historical romances with lots of passion, heart, amazing characters, action, and lots of love will love Sinclair’s My Wild Highlander."
-The Pen and Muse Book Review
"Once again Ms. Sinclair hit it out of the park with this story. From the classy way she told the love story of Lachlan MacGrath and Lady Angelique Drummagan. And they obstacles that are put in their way, to make this a real page turner that is hard to put down... From the start the kisses that Lachlan bestows upon on Angelique leave her wanting more. And more is exactly where they head. The steaminess of passion comes off the pages and makes you want to keep reading to find out just what happens.
"Throughout the whole story we find a very classy and crisp romance that takes us to not only the bedroom but outside where we find that sometimes to make things work you must do things together and work hand in hand. TRUST!...Ms. Sinclair’s My Wild Highlander is a must read and one that I recommend and will read again. I look forward to the next Highland Adventure." - Romancing the Book
"Ms. Sinclair hits another homerun with My Wild Highlander. A follow up to My Fierce Highlander, she picks up younger brother Lachlan's story. Forced into a marriage neither wants, the heroine and hero try to make the best of their situation. She has been damaged, and he has lacked true direction. She gives him a purpose, and he teaches her how to love and embrace life again. Very good plot lines between the two.
With a cast of bad guys (and a bad woman), there is never a dull moment. The pace keeps the reader's interest, and there are enough twists to keep you guessing. As usual, Ms. Sinclair flexes her ability to write hot, steamy love scenes. With plenty of sexual tension beforehand, I worried my Kindle might melt when these two finally got together. If you like Scottish Historicals with lots of action and a satisifying ending, I highly recommend picking up My Wild Highlander." - Derek Dodson
