    Edana Chattan senses concerns where people she knows could be in danger. When her brothers warn her they're in trouble, she can't convince her father to listen to her, so with an escort, she tries to locate them. Separated from her escort during a storm, she is discovered by Angus MacNeill, who is tasked to return her home. Only Edana has other notions - and convinces him and his companions to allow her to use her abilities to locate her brothers who are manacled in a dungeon somewhere.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the entire book.


    What about Borah Coburn’s performance did you like?

    Borah Coburn is a great narrater who provides each character their own individualtiy. It's like watching a play in your mind.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could derfinately listen to this book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The hero and heroine were perfect for each other. A touch of paranormal filled with intrigue and romance with feeling and emotions. Humor, passion, romance, and suspense all in one book.

    The heroine is a strong take charge person in a time when this was an oddity. Add to that her special gifts and a neighboring clan who thinks they must stop her to protect her and you have a very interesting adventure.

    The hero meets the heroine when they are children but she really never leaves his mind, although he doesn't like to admit to it. He is a strong and perfect match for her character.

    The adventure begins early and continues throughout with the couple having to pretend to be man and wife, which says enough within itself. Add to the adventure humor, steamy passion, humor and romance and you have a satisfying read. I didn't want the book to end and I really look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Although I read this book first there was no confusion within the story from not reading the others in the series first. But it without a doubt made me add the others to the top of my to be read list. This is one author that will be added to my favorites list.

    Only Edana has other notions--and convinces him and his companions to allow her to use her abilities to locate her brothers who are manacled in a dungeon somewhere. That leads to a faux marriage and more dungeons and more trouble than Angus had ever thought possible. So why is the bewitching, fiery-haired lass making him think of marrying her for real?

    Would you listen to The Honor of a Highlander: A Novella again? Why?

    I would listen to The Honor of a Highlander over again. The story grabs attention from the first and holds throughout . There is laughter, happiness, sadness, romance, etc.. All the ingredients for a complete romance. This author takes the reader away and allows them to seemingly travel to the past and experience a different life!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like all the characters. They all complete the story.


    What does Melissa Carey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I also read the print version and enjoyed it as well. However the narration is great and adds to the excitement within the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend April Holthaus books, either in print, kindle, or audio.

    If you could sum up McKenna's Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Honor, Family, Love.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of McKenna's Honor?

    One of the most memorable moments of this book was when the children of the clan showed their feelings about McKenna's sentence to hang.


    What about Brad Wills’s performance did you like?

    I was thoroughly satisfied and surprised by Brad Wills's performance. I will definately listen to his other narrations.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The important thing that moved me through the entire book was the closeness of the clan. They didn't stop to wonder if they clan members were guilty or not, they were honor bound to help in any way they could, and they did.


    Any additional comments?

    I will begin by saying this is the first book I have read by this particular author. It is also the first audio book I've tried. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I had braced myself for a boring long drawn out session of let's just get it over with and get to the end.

    Within the first few minutes I was captured by the narration of this story. Very captivating and draws the listener in to await the next turn of the page, so to speak. This audible version makes a person feel as if they are there or as if they are watching a live play. The voices varied enough to give each character individuality. I am so glad this was my first audible book. It made me want to find the rest of the series and begin listening to them immediately. As they aren't on audio right now, I will instead of course go the first book in the series and begin reading. I realize I have started at the end but this book is great enough to stand on its own and it tells enough of the story so nothing feels like its left out.

    One minute I found myself holding my breath to see what would happen next, and the next minute I found myself laughing out loud at some of the antics that were taking place.

    If you are looking for a great audible book to listen to or a great book to read, you will not be disappointed in any way with this choice. The only thing I might recommend is to begin with book one and read them in order, but that is not really necessary.
