    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....

    Where does Charming the Shrew rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't listen to many audio books, but this one has been among my favorites. The only reason I did not give all 5 stars in the performance category was because at times, the male characters were portrayed in very effeminate tones, as though the narrator forgot which character (male or female) he was reading for. However - I simply ADORED the fantastic Scottish accent he performed them in. It brought so much life to the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Charming the Shrew?

    The best moment in the book was when Tayg made up the very last song in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Ralph Lister – was your favorite?

    I liked both main characters, as performed by the narrator. His Scottish accent is spot-on and enjoyable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They say that music soothes the savage beast....


    Any additional comments?

    I have read many historical romance stories, most often preferring those set in medieval times, and in the areas of England/Ireland/Scotland. This one has a very good story, with a conspiracy against king and country. It was very entertaining.
