Never read the print version
Uncle to the rescue
The narrator has more of a spanish accent rather than a scott, it took several hours to get use to it
A good read, though I have read better Hilander books.
I was a little put off by the cover art, which was so explicit and not very accurate. The hero, Ewan, was described as having long hair, but I guess that I am nit-picking. Anyway, this is the story of Mairin Stewart, illegitimate daughter of the recently deceased king of Scotland. Once she marries and produces a child, she will come into her inheritance, a strategic plot of land which is desired by many of the local lairds. The story starts with her being kidnapped by Duncan Cameron, one of these lairds, who plans to force her into marriage. She resists (of course!) and while being spirited back to his keep, she encounters a lost child, young Crispin McCabe, who wandered away from his clan's keep and ended up being kidnapped, as well. She take him under her protection, escapes, and ends up back on the McCabe lands. She meets up with Crispin's father, the widowed Ewan McCabe and sparks fly. This was a fun story, with lots of plot twists, and lots of steamy parts, too. Still, the story held up and it did not feel like a series of sex scenes. I came to really care about the characters and wanted to know more about them. So glad that this is the first of a trilogy!
Good narration, semi-steamy love scenes, sub-par story line. I've enjoyed Maya Banks' books but this one took almost the entire story before I began to have a small surge of interest. I bought the whole series on a sale several months ago, so hopefully the other books get better. I love a male lead that has a little dominant streak, but I think I just wasn't in the mood for some of the blatant sexism...although accurate for a historical piece I suppose...it grated on my nerves a bit. For now, I'll probably stick with my paranormal romance obsession and contemporary romances!
Really liked this story. Had the right balance of adventure, heat and spunk. The heroin was no helpless damsel and the story was good. Characters were likable. This was my first book by this author. Will definitely read more.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
The story is so well developed and the characters are great. I've never been a fan of this type of book, but its become a favorite that I listen to over and over. I couldn't wait until for the next book and then the next.
The relationship between the main characters.
Yes. Just enough so that you care about the characters.
Nothing. I really enjoyed her.
Addicted to Audio Books.....
The absolute BEST EVER! I want more Highlander romance after this trilogy.
All of them were my favorites - I love how each new book story line flowed into the other's and kept all the characters involved even though a new story was unfolding.
Passionate and Sexy!
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
As a lover of Highlander stories (especially those by Paula Quinn & Karen Marie Moning), "In Bed..." seemed like a good buy. Rocking installment. The reader is hooked right from the start. Yes, as another pointed out, there is some similarity to "Ravished by a Highlander" but "In Bed..." has much original material not to mention well described intimacy. Though I want a great story, I equally crave sexual chemistry and romance between characters. Banks doesn't disappoint.
Having enjoyed Kirsten Potter's narrations in the past, her interpretation in this story is equally wonderful. Consumed the story in one day! Not a waste of time or money.
It is a typical "Highlander Romance", a subject I enjoy. So if you like historical romance with a good story it's a good bet you will like this book. The only thing I don't love about the romance genre on tape are the sex scenes, it often times sounds ridiculous. This wasn't so bad as some others I've listened to however.
Only if they like romance.
I thought she did a great job with her voice and the different characters.
Two narrators one for the female and one for the male voices.
I purchased all three of the books in this series when Audible had a sale so I only paid
$4.95 for each. It may be why I liked the books, they were a good listen at a great price.
I wanted to hear Scottish accents and sex so I decided to try this out. I technically got what I was looking for, but it didn't satisfy me. I think if I were into highlander romances more, or if I were less into paranormal romance this would have been cool, but it didn't scratch my itch like I wanted it to. It wasn't bad, just totally not what gets me going.
