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 into the Scottish wilderness, determined to seek the king’s intervention. There she reluctantly joins forces with a handsome traveler, unable to anticipate the treacherous plot that will soon embroil them - or the passion that will ignite between them.

"In this exhilarating Highlands adventure Wittig knows how to merge passion, wild adventure, history, and danger into a perfect tale that takes your breath away and tugs at the heart." (Romantic Times)
Laurie Wittig is a new author for me. I was pleasantly surprised by this great audiobook. A fantastic story, funny and charming characters and a very impressive narration by Ralph Lister.
Highly recommended!! :)
I love historical romances,especially set in Scottland. The story was good but was ruined by the narrator. He was not able to do any of the voices male or female. I also downloaded 'Daring the Highlander ' through which I will grit my teeth as I listen,
Please, please if there are any more books in this series get Davina Porter to narrate.
The Story is written well but the Narrator leaves much to be desired when it comes to doing Scottish accents. He's very adept with the British reading. But this is a book about the Scotts and there is much that needs to be read with a Scottish accent and he failed terribly with them. Or maybe it's just me being used to Davina Potter doing a beautiful Scottish Accent.
Other than that it was a lovely read.
I read so I can write
Romance is not the best description of this work. It is a good story in the typical Scots setting of clan conspiracy, and holds interest. If you are looking for hot sex, look elsewhere.
It was so unbelievably bad, I was left wishing I'd read the original. The point of retelling a well known story is to make it more interesting. This author failed. I found this version so boring, that I had force myself to finish the book. It was bad, a total waste of a credit.
Funny, entertaining, engaging
None, if you expected William Shakespeare , not at all, different storyline
A little too slow, but you get used to him and the Scottish brogue , omg, loved it.
Neither, so I liked it a lot
Miss Wittig gave her best again. I liked the book a lot and will recommend it, due to her well told story, which entertained me thoroughly. At times I got cold feet, this well she described the travels of her hero and Katharine
That's a good question. Maybe a story without so many holes? This story would have been better if the contrivances hadn't been so absurd.
Good question. Since story got good reviews, I have to assume that she has many friends. I don't know if I would trust her reviews again.
Adequate, reasonable, listenable.
The Shrew. Her personality was absurd. Her behaviour was without reason. She was a bit of a psycho.
It's hard to believe that such a ridiculous story made it into print, not to mention into an audible format.
I enjoyed this story. It was an easy read that held my interest. So much that I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
Story is captivating, characters are interesting and the narrator is very good. I've spent a lot more on books that weren't as nearly as good.
A snowball fight in the forest.
Very engaging voice that can effectively relay all of the emotions.
Couldn't be more predictable! The story was good but it turned so typical and boring...all of a sudden the heroine turns from a shrew into an angel, then she gets confused about her feelings about Tayg "the bard". She can't decide if she was in love with him because he is a bard or because he( in truth) is the leader of his clan....SO UNBELIEVABLE!!
In short I wasn't particulary impressed, the story couldn't keep my attention, so boring I had to fast foward many times.
I bought this book after reading the reviews, so I decided to give my point of view to help people who have the same taste as mine.
