    Loved the story. Mr. Stechschulte, you have a voice I throughly enjoyed but your Southern accent was less than stellar at times condescending to my Southern ears. Please don't ever do a Southern accent again. However, don't let this negative comment keep you from down loading the book. Mr. Stechschulte doesn't over use the accent and he really does have a pleasing natural voice.

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    I like Angela Dawe as a narrator. The narrator can make or break a book for me. This has a very good story that is intertaining with twists and turns to make it interesting. I am listening to the series for the second time. I am enjoying it as much the second time as I did the first. Recommend the series.

    Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans - her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he's left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family? Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her - give up her son or the man she loves.

    It seems in this genre there are few books that get it right on both story and narration. Ms Le Veque's story was great. I love to listen to people speak. Kiff VanderHeuvel is awesome! I found myself going back to listen again to certain parts to make sure I didn't miss anything. More, please!

    The year is 1180 A.D. and times are very dark. England is lawless for the most part and the people live in fear. Rising to power during this time is the vicious and brutal knight Ajax de Velt. His mission is to conquer a large stretch of the Scots and Welsh border, commandeering wealth and property along the way. He wants to be the most feared and powerful warlord in all of England, Wales, and Scotland, and he is well on his way.

    The Highlands of Scotland, Autumn 1344..... She had won his heart without trying... and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

    A handsome diplomat on a deadly mission to deliver a priceless necklace is in no position to get involved with a common tavern wench -- no matter how breathtakingly beautiful she is… But there’s more to the lovely tavern wench than Roman Forbes first surmises (including his pocket watch, which somehow made its way into her possession). With a bounty on her head, Tara Griffin cannot afford to fall for the handsome Roman, a nobleman who has no place for a commoner in his life…

    Meriel Schellden knows that marrying Craig McTiernay will strengthen the ties between their clans. She insists she is motivated by duty and responsibility, nothing more. But when a mere formality becomes a far from platonic kiss, Meriel must question where her true intentions lie. Though Meriel entices him far more than she realizes, Craig's commitments have always kept his passions restrained. But no sense of duty to his clan can make Craig forget the way Meriel's touch left him teased, tantalized, and desperate for more.

    When Gavin Macgregor first laid eyes on Kenna Moore at a festival in their Highland home, the boy fell in love with her flaming red hair, and her easy smile. Years later, Gavin works up the courage to give Kenna a thistle, and with one innocent gesture, steals her heart. And then, in the blink of an eye, Gavin is gone, swept away with the rest of the Highlanders to fight in Bonnie Prince Charlie's war, from which he never returns.

    Almost everybody who has grown up in Chicago knows about the Thorne Rooms. Housed in the Children’s Galleries of the Chicago Art Institute, they are a collection of 68 exquisitely crafted miniature rooms made in the 1930s by Mrs. James Ward Thorne. Each of the 68 rooms is designed in the style of a different historic period, and every detail is perfect, from the knobs on the doors to the candles in the candlesticks. Some might even say, the rooms are magic....

    This work of fiction was a fun listen. I didn't know about the exhibit prior to listening. What a visionary Mrs. James Ward Thorne was. I would think it would not be possible to
    recreate due to cost of labor. Marianne Marolne did an excellent writing and Cassandra Campbell's voice was appealing. I think Tweens would really enjoy it. So didI!
