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)
This story had me Laughing and smiling. It is more then worth the credit. Narration was well done. I highly recommend. So glad I found this treasure.
Tayg and Catriona's story. Tayg a war hero, comes home and is giving the Ultimatum, to become the chief he must marry. Tayg not ready to marry is giving a task by his father and the king. Off Tayg goes to deliver a letter, but he portrays himself as a bard. Catriona is raised by 5 brothers, 4 unloving, uncaring , and 1 that might care but will not help her. Catriona has become quick razor-sharp tongued shrew in order to protect herself. She learns almost to late that a marriage has been arranged for her. Catriona's answer is no way, and she runs, taking her "caring" brothers horse.
This is how the adventure starts, and builds as Catriona and Tayg's adventure comes together.
This book is a fun listen, and worth a credit.
Say something about yourself!
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.
