Don't look for any humorous banter. This is not exactly a "feel good" novel. The heroine has been kidnapped, raped and had her "extraordinarily beautiful face ruined by knife scar" all before the story starts. The people of the clan she was abducted into continue to tread her abominably even after the villain is killed off -- that happen in book #1 in the series.
Every time someone commits some new act of cruelty towards her, the heroine is brave and tries not to cry, but she often does. If she doesn't cry it is because she is in too much despair and too depressed to cry.
The hero forces the heroine's only friend in the clan to tell him bits and pieces of the heroine's story. She never wants to betray her friend's confidence, but eventually breaks down in tears and does so.
The author eventually does deliver the required HEA, but just before that happens the hero becomes so upset about how he and other people have treated the heroine that he breaks down and cries.
Have your tissues handy.
I love how with book series you still feel a bit connected to the pervious characters, that I still love and miss. And again the heroin was one with a "disability" who was given the chance at love.
Genevieve was my favorite, such a strong, resourceful women. I didn't agree with all her actions and decisions, but I can understand why she did what she did.
It was Genevieve with her bow and arrow.
Maybe not all in one sitting, but there were times that I couldn't stop listening.
PLEASE BRING BACK THE THREE BOOK HIGHLAND EVER AFTER!!!! I NEED TO KNOW HOW IT ALL ENDS!!!!
How someone who is supposedly capable of running a clan jumps to such crazy conclusions without getting all information on a regular basis just baffles me.
Get book one first. This is a great series. More romance and less erotica than Maya normally writes. It's a fun world to get lost in for a few hours.
The story is a bit predictable, especially after you've read the first book and I highly doubt it is anywhere near historically accurate, but it's a wonderful, feel good listen. It's well written and flows beatifully. You can't help but love the characters. And Kirsten Potter is as always fabulous!
I used to read under the covers with a flashlight so Mom and Dad wouldn't make me turn off my light and go to sleep!
Just a pet peeve, but the timing for ride distances was in contravention no big deal, was a good read
