Never judge a book by its movie
Yes, it was fantastic listen. The story takes place during the up in Scotland at the time of Mary Stewart Reign. The story flowed, the characters were very real, the narration superb.
I loved Angus, the "most handsome man in Scotland" was noble, honest and quite "randy". He stays away from politics, to protect his small can.
His "plain wife" Anabella, who he married to obtain land her father owned. She is a a strong woman who does her duty, but with opinions of her own.
She was great, all the characters were great, her timing was amazing.
I loved this book. IMO it's the best of the series. The other heros of the Border series, were a bit arrogant, and some did stray from there "loves", some I would also consider borderline abusive... This book did not have that feel, which was a great change.
The book can stand alone. you don't have to read the others.
Well worth the credit.
