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.

I love being a Total Geek!
I can't believe that someone paid to publish this so-called book - paper dolls have more substance than these shallow characters. Every chapter is more painful than the one previous . . .
I'd return it but it only $1.99. . .
A most enjoyable story. It is full of adventure, strife and love. The narrator brought the story to life. I highly recommend this book.
Narration was good, but not the best I've heard. I have the next book in the series. So I'll see how it goes. The story was good but, had a few weak spots.
Fighting For Love
What I loved most about this, after several hours spent with Sylvia Day, is that every other page is not a sex scene! I think there are only a couple of juicy love scenes, which for me was perfect after the overkill with Sylvia. The story is complex and kept my interest. I was honestly beginning to roll my eyes with all the bedroom talk from other authors.
While he is no Davina Porter, I thought he did a great job narrating this story. A couple of times, his tone was wrong and I would mistake the female lead for the male or vice versa, but other than that, he did pretty well.
I have realized as I mature in reading, and for my own personal tastes, the chase is so much more exciting for me than the "big moment" :-). You will find all of that in this book, and the hero doesn't give up on acquiring his love interest. Its just so sweet, and again, a nice change from the porn most erotica has transitioned to these days.
I really enjoyed it, more than I thought I would. I would read more from this author. The narrator did a good job.
Say something about yourself!
This was a nice distraction from my normal read...we have a hot guy who is destined to be chief of his clan, and we have an opinionated strong woman who is ticking all the men in her clan off because she won't act like a "proper" lady, she acts like a shrew...skinning them alive with her tongue!
I found this book to be light, and charming, but with some real substance that I found very fun to listen to. And the accents....wow...swoon!
I would get this book again in a heart beat :-)
Fairly high in the historical fiction class with well brought out characters and an easy flowing plot.
None that comes to mind right now
There were many but I think whenCatarin and Tayg first meet on the trail was pretty good, both were trying to hide something and neither was willing to give any information.
When Tayg was beaten by Cats brothers and she and her new first friend help him to get away, her concern and care of Tayg showed how she truly felt for him despite how she acted outwardly.
I'd recommend this book , it flows well and is very well narated.
