This is a great continuation of the series to the Montgomery and Armstrongs. If you haven't listened to the 1st book, I highly recommend it before listening to this one. You'll get a better background of the characters. So as this series contines on, we find an imprisoned lass from the evil Ian McHugh who is rescued from a lifetime of sin by Bowen Montgomery. She is ashamed of herself that Ian imprisioned her for a year and was taken advantage of. She's assured in her mind that her future lies in living in a convent for the rest of her life and that no one would want a lass that has a bad reputation. But low and behold, Bowen comes into the McHugh keep and stirs things up. You're left with a fairy tale ending and a good highland love story. Definately worth the credit if you enjoyed the first book...I can't wait for more stories to come. Good author and narrator.
Maya Banks hits another home run with Highlander Most Wanted, the sequel to Never Seduce a Scot. This story picks up seamlessly from book 1 when Bowen Montgomery and others come to the McHugh keep. The interaction between the characters is deep, giving you the feeling that you know these people. The story is about overcoming obstacles, the will to survive and love. I am surprised at how quickly I can get lost in these books and am dying of anticipation for book three.
Kirsten Potter gives an emotional performance adding another dimension to the story. She does excellent with men and women's voices alike. She speeds up narration during the intense moments increasing the feeling of urgency. There is a great amount of feeling in her voice throughout the entire performance. The book is great on its own, but it becomes exceptional with Kirsten's narration.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I expected more from this Highlander series...
I have been waiting forever the this Highlander series to update on Audible and I am a little upset... I wanted a bit more. Don't get me wrong... this was well worth the wait/credit...but I just expect a bit more. Maybe like the second book in the McCabe Highlander Series by Banks I guess... That series was just awesome... I still have dreams about the McCabe brothers...!!! No such luck here with the Montgomerys or Armstrongs...
This was a good love story... but I didn't like tha fact that something is damage with the heroines in all of these books. That is kind of messed up a bit to me... Kind of sad... But still a good book. I nice romance read/listen... The smex was not all that great actually. I think I skipped past a couple of scences... So it was nothing spectacular.
Narrations was great though.. Potter is a great Highlander narrator.
I was looking forward to the second book in this series. The first one was OUTSTANDING. This second book missed the mark by a longshot. There was so action, only a lot of internal thoughts from the main character. And I agree with another reviewer, it was never explained why a woman who was kidnapped, raped and imprisoned was hated by the entire clan. That made no sense at all.
The narraration was outstanding as usual. Kirsten Potter does an excellent job with voice inflection, emotion and different voices. I can always listen to her. I'll listen to another Maya Banks, but I was not sold on this story at all. I hope #3 is better.
Maya you out did yourself. I think I ran through every possible emotion while listening to this story. Yes, I did cry. Thank you, I loved this book. I cannot wait for the next book.
I have alway enjoyed being read to, but when found audible it was a dream come true, love listening to books
WHEN BOWEN SHOW GENEVIEVE WHAT LOVE SHOW BETWEEN A WOMAN AND MAN
HOW HE TOOK HER AWAY FROM MCHUGH KEEP AND KEPT HER SAFE
HOW SHE SAVED BOWEN LIFE WITH A BOW ARROW
I THOUGH IT WAS A GOOD BOOK BUT IT DIDN'T MAKE ME CRY OR LAUGH
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Maya Banks best series are her Highlanders books and this one doesn't not disappoint. She brings out a huge range of emotion and you deeply care for Genevieve from the very start. There is just no bad part in the book, its a roller coaster ride that pulls on your heart strings. Get it, you'll see what I'm talking about and you won't be disappointed!
The entire Story was great from start to finish.
Bowen and his unconditional love! Genevieve and her perseverance!.
Her accent and emphasis that she gives to EACH and EVERY character. She is one of the best, and I deliberately seek out books that she narrates.
Holy smokes yes... I only put it down when I absolutely had to.
Can't wait for the next one Maya, and I give this one a 2nd listen.
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
Yes. We'll written, different plot twist, same sexy highlanders!
Banks's Seduction of a Highland Lass.. Very similar but this book offers a bit of a twist.
She's not as big a character in this book but is in the first... But I love how she plays Rory. Potter is the very best there is! She makes me lose myself in every book she narrates. She is the PERFECT ACCENT narrator. They ALL sound real and so believable. Men and women and children alike... She is THE BEST!
Yes yes yes! Sleep is overrated. This book was impossible to pause!
While the Montgomery and Armstrong Series is WONDERFUL....it is not quite as good as Banks's McCabe Series. The McCabe Series is my all time favorite....Montgomery and Armstrong series is a close second! Banks is BRILLIANT! I wish she wrote only highland romances because she does them so perfectly.
This books title doesn't make any sense once the book is listened to.....but that's just a petty thought.
The narrator...she does a great job with the voices....
When Genevieve comes back and Bowen is looking down..and she breaks away from everyone else racing on horseback towards him.
Yes....took me two days
