Although this was on my wish list for some time, I was reluctant to purchase it because I was disappointed in Banks's first McCabe book. Since this was another Highland series, I expected it to be similar. When it went on sale, though, I took a chance and purchased it. I was pleasantly surprised that I actually really enjoyed this story. The story was refreshingly unique in the Highland romance genre. I also liked Kirsten Potter better as the narrator in this one for some reason. I definitely recommend it!
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
I loved this book! Super strong main characters, great secondary characters and a fantastic story line.I loved how the relationship blooms. No matter what Eveline comes up against, she is strong and true to herself. Graham is a strong and wonderful man who shows that he has a tender side. Even with all of the pain and horrible things that have happened in the past, they find a way to work around it and come together as a team. Can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
I love the fact that there is something that physically challenges each female lead but they overcome it.
I did love it!
I look forward to seeing the stories of all of the brothers and Rory.
Yes, Absolutely. It was such a great story. It was suprisingly captivating so much that you wanted to cheer for Evelyn overcoming all obstacles.
The most suprising moment was when Evelyn runs away admiting defeat finding out she had been made a fool from the people of her new clan. She is out in the fields when someone injures her husband, she overcomes her fear of horses and goes to get help screaming at the top of her lungs to the point of injury(she had not spoken for 3 years). She is dropped by the horse and gets back up again and leads the men to her husband. She stays 4 days by his side with no food, sleep, or bathing. When her husband comes too, she quickly crumbles to accept are her needs and pain she had been avoiding. When the healer checks her she is black and blue all over her body. Evelyn is a great example of a determined woman!
Yes, All the details and descriptions. This book was viewed as a movie in my mind. That's how I know.
Yes, I was crying and cheering for Evelyn.
Yes, I want more!
I love the story itself, I hardly write reviews and I have over 200 Audiobooks, but this one had me feeling that I just had to share something so that others would not hesitate to get this one. Maya Banks is an amazing writer and I love her books, but this one let me feel something, it made me feel so proud of Eveline and Graeme both. I was proud of her strength dealing with all that she encounters and for his Strength for standing up for her no matter what. Through the Narration I felt the love and all the feelings that these two people felt.
The most memorable moments is when Eveline finally opened up and spoke to Graeme, telling him all her fears and all about herself. That he felt protective and more love for her than he even realized made that moment so memorable for me
Graeme because of his strength, but Rory because she makes me smile.
The first time that Graeme and Eveline made love. That was touching that her opening up allowed them to reach a new level of closeness that they could finally come together as man and wife.
Sweet, tender, heartwarming
That in the end, the two clans overcome their animosity because they have found a common cause worth fighting for.
That she didn't overdo it in trying a Scottish accent.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, because of the depth the characters are unfolded to enable the listener to realize their driving motive.
When she made up he mind to move all her luggage to the Lairds Room
I liked the fact that Kirsten Potter brought the irish brogue out.
Really I love the audio. The only reason I even started reading this book was cause I ghetto audio. Kirsten Potter is amazing. She made me believe the characters were alive. She is such a talented narrator. I enjoy every book she reads.
Eveline is my favorite character. She is so sweet and innocent. You can't help but love her. There isn't anything about her you can't like.
My favorite scene is when Eveline yells for the women of the keep to get OUT!!! It broke my heart for all those women to be so mean to her. And when she talked for the first time in three years it was just amazing.
Yes, I had an extreme reaction to the book. In fact I had several. It made me laugh till I cried and cry till I laughed.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves Maya Banks and just good old fashion romance.
I bought this book largely on a whim and am glad that I did. I am really unfamiliar with genre - outside of the horrible tropes - and was very happy that this book really didn't fall into those too much. And the use of deafness, both how the heroine adapted during the time period - even using it to get out of a bad situation, and how others around her view the disability were interesting.
Plus both the main characters (and many of the background one) were really likeable (which I find can be a real problem sometimes - especially in fiction) and I ended up listening to it almost all in one go.
I would definitely recommend it. It was a fun little story - and a very easy listen.
Say something about yourself!
yes. the story is very charming and touching.
first time he tells her he loves her.
I will listen to this one again.
