    Returning to the Scottish Highlands after a fierce battle with the English, Tayg Munro receives a hero’s welcome - and an ultimatum. To take his place as heir to the chiefdom, he must choose a wife or have one chosen for him. Furious and stalling for time, the brooding warrior volunteers for a mission that takes him deep into the Highlands, with no hint of the fateful encounter that awaits him.... Catriona MacLeod is known as the Shrew of Assynt, thanks to her razor-sharp tongue and her unwillingness to yield to her five brothers. When she learns that her eldest brother has promised her hand in marriage to a loathsome man, she flees....

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    Story
    (299)

    The ruthless enforcer of Scotland's most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell will use any means necessary to vanquish lawlessness and unrest among the feuding Highland clans. Seduction is a game as easily played as subterfuge, but when Jamie poses as a suitor to a rival clan's daughter in order to expose treason, the line between duty and pleasure is suddenly blurred.

    CAROLYN says: "Great start to a great series."
    "Good plot. Narrator lacks."

    Would you try another book from Monica McCarty and/or Roger Hampton?

    Yes, for Monica McCarty. Not necessarily for Roger Hampton.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting and intriguing plot with great characters. This is my fourth book written by her, all of which have been great.


    What didn’t you like about Roger Hampton’s performance?

    Roger's voice is not right for this book. It either needs a deep male voice for the rugged highlander or a female voice for the enchanting lady to make the story believable. Roger's tenor voice doesn't do either of the main characters justice.

    His voice also lacks passion and fails to emphasize the key emotions in the book. His voice during the scenes of passion reminds me of an aloof person who is filing their fingernails while impassively tolerating the attentions of their partner.


    Do you think Highland Warrior needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    McCarty's audio books, in general, could benefit from stronger narrators.
