What a great conclusion to this Highlander series. Maya Banks does it again! Admittedly I was doubtful with book 1, but books 2 & 3 definitely pulled through as winners. I so enjoyed Caelon and Rionna's story; Rionna was a fabulous heroine and I loved the relationship between she and Caelon and how it develops. This is a shorter story than the others but it packs a punch throughout, giving you romance,action and humor. If you're looking for a sweet historical romance, this is a good series to purchase.. Loved it...highly recommended.
So, for the 3rd book in the series, we come to the story of Rionna McDonald and the youngest McCabe brother Caelen. After seeing his brother Alaric fall in love with Keely McDonald, he agrees to marry Rionna and to seal the alliance between the McDonald and McCabe clans. He is attracted to Rionna, admiring her strength and her willingness to fight for her clan, but he is not in love with her, promising never to love another after being betrayed by his first love. Rionna is humiliated that her philandering father, the former laird of the McDonald clan, had attempted to arrange her marriage to all 3 of the McCabe brothers. She is insecure about her looks and her role as a woman, just never really feeling like she fits in. She is attracted to Caelen, but hates how he treats her. This story shows how their relationship grows through MANY rough patches. The evil Duncan Cameron is still on the scene and you wonder if Rionna will ever find her plan. Overall, a great story. Wish that there was a 4th installment!
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.
It was real written and the progression of characters was interesting.
Rionna. I love a strong woman.
Yes, Maya Banks is one of my favorites.
Nothing. Love Kirsten Potter.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Book three is more of the same, equally as good as the other two books. And if you haven't read them, don't start with this one. I will be reading more of Maya Banks Highlander writings in the future. Characters are well developed, but I thought it odd that they never refer to wearing plaids, during the whole series. Could have used more highland in the description as well. Narrator does a good job.
The love story is great, I enjoyed it.
She's very pleasant to listen to.
Nothing extreme, no. Easy listen.
worth the credit!
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Good ending to a fun trilogy.
Kirsten Potter is AMAZING!!!! She brings the story to life!
I wouldn't know. But I loved this audiobook. 'Twas the best ending to a trilogy I've ever listened to.
Rionna of course!!! She was a fierce highland warrior princess.
She is an awesome narrator. She infuses life into every character. Her accents and tones were perfect. Her performance as well as the awesomeness of the book drove me to tears.
Yes yes yes!!!!! I gave up my sleep just to finish this book. And I definetly did not regret it.
Please read "In bed with a highlander" and "Seduction of a highland lass" before you read this one. You will definetly be moved to tears. Now I'm sad coz I don't think I'll find another trilogy this good.
Addicted to Audio Books.....
I love this series and only hope we can re-visit the McCabe clan. Please listen to all of them in sequence you will not be disappointed at all. Perfection.
Light entertainment which was easy to listen to. Fun without being raunchy.
Rionna was my favorite character because she was feisty but vulnerable. She care about her family and made sacrifices for their benefit.
I loved this book. The entire McCabe series was outstanding. They were great characters with good stories. I laughed, I cried and I wanted more when it was done. Not many books seem to make me feel that way these days.
What could have been better was the narrator. She wasn't awful, but she just couldn't quite take me there. I found that she wasn't always consistent with the character voices. It was confusing at times.
That being said, I would still recommend the audiobooks to highland romance lovers.
