A light, fun romp that reminded me a little bit of the movie Brave (a very adult version of Brave -- there was a lot of sexy-time in this book). I enjoyed it, and I'm somewhat tempted to read on as I liked the character of Rionna and the next book focuses on her, but I'm not sure that I will.
The first of a trilogy, hooks you for the rest of the brothers stories. This book not only had the usual love story, but sets up the characters for the remaining books. You get interested in the McCabe brothers and admire their loyalty to each other and family. They do what is good for the clan, even at a personal sacrifice. It has a nice bit of action, politics, scheming, and deception going on, providing a nice background for things to come. The main plot of the story is the romance though, but the title tells us that.
No. I only listen to books once.
Many others - can't recall names.
No, but I will listen to more.
Several moments, quite frankly. The writer has a skill for capturing life moments that we all cherish.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I’m always worried about historical novels…will they get the language right, will they hold true to the themes of the period….but since it was Maya Banks I had to take a shot, and was NOT disappointed! Wonderful story, and series, that made me laugh and made me cry. Couldn’t have asked for more!
Yes, this was a great book and series
All of them!
Kirsten Potter's performance for each character was wonderful!
The twists and turns with each character that eventually intertwines with them all by the end...firm family roots, mixed in with trust it really covers EVERY EMOTION!!!!
Love, love , love, to read, and now w/Audible, listen. Enjoy stories with wit and adventure where the h/h embark in a relationship without constant bickering.
Brave heroine, strong hero, good story. Well written and perfect narrator, highland romance lovers should enjoy this. I did.
I really liked this first book in the McCabe Trilogy and cannot wait to listen to the stories of the remaining brothers, Alaric and Caelen. The American narrator has a very nice voice and I enjoyed her, however my only complaint was that she simply cannot do a Scottish accent. I am very familiar with Scots and her accent varied between Russian and Irish. Once I got used to the fact that I wasn't going to hear a true Scots accent, it was fine.
I enjoyed the relationship between Ewan and Mairin. As laird of a crumbling keep and a destitute clan, Ewan is not used to be disobeyed which Mairin does every chance she gets. I did love how the women of the clan accepted Mairin as one of their own and as their laird's lady.
I highly recommend this medieval Scottish romance.
This was a good listen. It was a departure from Maya Banks usual writing. I was disappointed because it seemed like Ms. Banks channeled the writing of Julie Garwood and her book, "The Bride". Lots of discussions of "her duties" as his wife. Lots of conversations that entail, "Wife,....." or "Husband...." I just rolled my eyes when they spoke this way as it reminded me of the Julie Garwood's writing. I can't imagine anyone talking to his liege the way the hero of the story did. "If I wanted you dead, you already would be, my lord" That was not believable at all to me. Nevertheless, it was an entertaining read and I was pleased with this book and will listen to the others. I am looking forward to the third installment of this book where the main character is a fighter as well as a lady.
I have to say it was a very good suprise how I enjoyed this story
all of them
I love they era. I did make me cry and care for everyone in the story.
