    Story
    "HOT but more character development in books 2 & 3?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If the friend really loved to read about hot sex scenes then yes... but, I would definitely not recommend this to readers that are use to "tame" love scenes in some romance novels.


    What other book might you compare Behind the Plaid to and why?

    I would have to compare it to any of author Brenda Jackson's books. Why not a specific book? There are many "Highland" themes to choose from & I cannot make a definite choice because I think I would have loved this book more if we saw Emma and Logan's relationship build & develop out of the bedroom too.


    What does Antony Ferguson and Arika Rapson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    LOVED THE NARRATORS!!!! Excellent scottish brog by Antony Ferguson! BOTH narrators kept me listening- even through the screams, groans, moans,anddddddddd lol you get the picture.


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

    WARNING: ALL INNOCENT CHILDREN (INCLUDING VIRGINS), HORMONE JUMPIN' HORNY TEENS & ANY ADULT(S) THAT CANNOT SAY THE WORD "SEX" WITHOUT BLUSHING OR WHISPERING IT **W I L L N O T B E A D M I T T E D**


    Any additional comments?

    This is my 1st review. I felt I needed to warn some of you as I rely on reviews when I am unsure about certain books.I value those reviews & I have seen many that summarize the story and relate the ending. No problem with that here ( the main reason I decided to write this) b/c as I was listening to the book I suddenly hear "this has been an Audio production... WTH? I looked at my IPOD & sure enough it had ended. I looked the book up on another site & that is when I read there are 3 books in the series and we will hear more about Emma & Logan as the series continues. Hopefully, Audible will add books 2 & 3 ASAP!
    MY OTHER VALID REASON FOR THIS REVIEW IS THAT IF YOU ARE LIKE ME I LISTEN TO MY AUDIO BOOKS IN THE CAR, WHILE AT WORK ON MY LUNCH HOUR, WHILE WORKING IN MY GARAGE/PATIO/HOUSE... PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE B/C I LOVE TO "READ"! THIS IS ONE OF THOSE AUDIO BOOKS THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY BE LISTENING TO W/ HEADPHONES (turned down of course), & NOT CRANKED UP ON YOUR CAR STEREO or YOUR SURROUND SOUND SPEAKERS LOCATED IN THE CEILING AT WORK DURING LUNCH (especially if you are a high school teacher like I am lol). YIKES! :o

    "stupid."

    To much sex for me and this stupid woman went from being controlled to being controlled. This time she likes it all. I had hi hopes when I read the description. But this story was about nothing more then a willing sex slave. I couldn't finish it.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea for a Highland Romance"

    Usually I listen to the whole book before writing a review but I only made 3 hours on this one. The heroine and the hero I did not like. If explicit sexually scene fits a developed story line then I find a well written scene suitable but gratuitously instead of characters and plot it is boorish. No more Eliza Knight for me. I have over 1000 audible books in multiple
    genres this book is one of the few (less than 6) I have not finished. Really terrible. Despite the use of two narrators .

    "Terrible!!"

    Total waste of a credit. I kept waiting for the story to get better but it never did. There was barely any plot and barely any character development. I would return it but I finished the listen thinking that it must get better soon and then it was over.

    "WELL...THAT WAS DIFFERENT"

    Different...that's all I can say. A mid-evil 50 Shades!! Hmmm...
    I did, however, enjoy the dual narration. I would like to hear more of that in audio books.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "3.5 Bugger Another Trilogy"

    I happen to like this author and I have enjoyed other books that are part of her Stolen Bride series, but those books pretty much are stand alone and you can enjoy them without reading any others, but this one you cannot. I was intrigued by the time travel aspect of this story and was looking forward to a good read, but after about the first few chapters it became kind of boring. Most of the book was about sex, which is not all bad but I read Highlander romance books for the rich history, colorful descriptions of every day life, and the intense conflict that the warrior aspect brings to the story. I never got that breathless anticipation with this book and we are just left hanging at the end. You have no choice but to buy the next two books in order to know what happens to Emma and Logan. We are given a synopsis of each book at the end of this one and if had read those to start with I probably would have rethought my purchase of this book. It's not a bad story, but it's not her best.

    Antony Ferguson was fantasic and should have narrated the whole book. Arika Rapson sounded like my mother trying to sound sexy - creepy.

    "Slow and boring"

    I love Highlander time travel romance, but I'd give this one a miss if you're not into erotica. I didn't realize that was the basic theme - his and her first person perspective narration. Lots of increasingly hot and interesting sex interspersed with a vague plot. Not really my type.

    The audio performance was done very well. The only thing that really kept me going, truth be told. Not planning to finish the series.

    "Good but Abrupt"

    Good story that leaves the reader hanging. I'm assuming (hoping) that there is a sequel! I recommend to Scottish lovers.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "I NEED A PLANE TICKET TO SCOTLAND & A THUNDERSTORM"

    Well, if you're looking for a very sexy, very handsome, very Alpha 16th Century Highland Laird (and let's face it who isn't) then look no further because Logan is definitely it. American downtrodden wife Emma/flees from an abusive marriage and they live in Scotland/suddenly drawn to an old Castle/magical thunderstorm and lightning/whoosh time travel/then hey presto mistaken identity and an easy on the eyes huge Highland Laird.

    This was very enjoyable, with lots of sex or sexual feelings mentioned, there is action of the non sexual kind with the invasion of a rival Clan and all that brought, lots of secrets, a few cases of wee misinformations given, some interesting secondary characters and an English King that's going to be a problem. But the main story centres around Logan and Emma as the instant magnetic chemistry makes them both aware that more is going on here and lusty Logan is determined to teach timid Emma everything he knows sexually in order to awaken her desires.... but he does this very very slowly.

    Worth a credit? It's a bit light on descriptions, there are a few blanks where more info would have been nice but the H/H are both likeable, it's just a nice time travel fantasy romance then, as I was rooting for the HEA ending that was about to happen, those dreaded words "this concludes..." and I was left stunned, shaken and oh so mad because only now do I realise that it's a &£@?!%$ TRILOGY. Ok ok I'm calm again and can answer the question.... YES I'm glad I used a credit on it but be warned this is a 'headphones only' listen unless you're alone.

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    Story
    "Pure sex."
    What did you like best about Behind the Plaid? What did you like least?

    This book should be listed in erotica not romance. It's a story about sex and foreplay.


    What was most disappointing about Eliza Knight’s story?

    Very little story, just sex.


    What three words best describe Antony Ferguson and Arika Rapson ’s voice?

    Anthony Ferguson did a great job narrating. Ariika Rapson's voice is hard to listen to. You may think you're listening to your mother narrate a sex story. A bit creepy.


    Do you think Behind the Plaid needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. The story is truly lacking. If there is a follow up please don't list it as a romance story.


    Any additional comments?

    If you and your husband are bored in the bedroom then read this. Otherwise be prepared to listen or read nothing but sexual "how to's"
