Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands

After finishing a long-awaited historical by Lynsay Sands, I have just one thing to say: What happened to the funny? Sands has always delivered laugh out loud outrageousness, regardless of genre. But although there are a few, small amusing scenes, not one of the made me smile, let alone laugh.

As an historical romance, it's perfectly fine. The characters are fine, if a bit stereotypical, and the plot is predictable and easily figured out. In short--it's just another rubber stamp historical without any of the wit, charm and humor that Sands normally puts in her writing. Bummer.
