Betrayed by his brother and his childhood love, Brice Kinross needs a fresh start. So he welcomes the opportunity to leave Sweden for the Scottish Highlands to take over the family estate. But there's trouble afoot. The estate is in ruin and money is disappearing.
He discovers an ally in Marsaili Buchanan, the beautiful redheaded housekeeper, but can he trust her? Marsaili works hard at being housekeeper and harder still at avoiding men who want to take advantage of her. But she's irresistibly drawn to the new clan chief, even though he’s made it plain he doesn't want to be shackled to anyone.

I am really not in to romance.. I like historic writing the are fiction but follow closely to historic time lines.
story was nice, not into romance novels
I rather read about real history with a flavor of fiction. Do not like romance novels to me they all end the same.
Heroine detracted from the story as she was never fleshed out--even the dog had more presence than she did. She was kind of like plain wallpaper, there, yet adding only to the surface. I thought she was going to finally come to life near the end when the author gave her a few moments to show her backbone, but as soon as the scene ended she went back to being wallpaper. It didn't help that the voice the narrator gave her was a squeaky little girl's voice.
The story itself was "okay"--nice guy finding his way through heartache to his place in life--but doubt I'd bother listening to it again. The narrator used a strong Scottish burr which seemed to fit the story in general.
