    Always! But This Heroine was frustrating and bland... Hero came off as a brute.. not even a likeable brute :-) Ending was lackluster... I always judge a good book by asking if I would read/listen to it again... this one was a no... but it wasn't bad or awful.. just average

    Getting attached to someone nearly sidelined agent Annie Perez's career. So she's not about to make the same mistake twice. This latest undercover assignment in Louisiana - acting as nanny for a famous couple under threat - suits her perfectly. She can investigate quietly and under the radar. That is, provided she can stay clear of way-too-suspicious detective Nate Dufrene. Easier said than done when Nate seems to be around every corner. And with each encounter, Annie is tempted a little more by this son of Bayou Bridge.

    no... The characters were ok but I didn't care what happened to them... they were flat. the story carried well until the ending.. it was flat too... blah


    Which character – as performed by Allyson Johnson – was your favorite?

    Johnson had great accents! very well performed and easy listening voice... will listen to her again


    Was Waters Run Deep worth the listening time?

    no

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.

    What did you like best about In Bed with a Highlander? What did you like least?

    It took a while for me to even care about the heroine or the hero.... so it dragged until the second half when the story line picked up.. I did enjoy it and the second book is proving to be worth it!


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    It's ok.. she moves pretty fast though... but her accent in genuine and easy to listen to


    Did In Bed with a Highlander inspire you to do anything?

    LOL!

When Lady Jeannette Brantford is banished from her family’s estate in England, she encounters the dashing Darragh O’Brien. Too bad the common architect is well below her station.
