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 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.
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.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
This was a 4.95 special. It was a cute love story. It was a light, easy listen. Enjoyable.

I don't listen to many audio books, but this one has been among my favorites. The only reason I did not give all 5 stars in the performance category was because at times, the male characters were portrayed in very effeminate tones, as though the narrator forgot which character (male or female) he was reading for. However - I simply ADORED the fantastic Scottish accent he performed them in. It brought so much life to the story.
The best moment in the book was when Tayg made up the very last song in the story.
I liked both main characters, as performed by the narrator. His Scottish accent is spot-on and enjoyable.
They say that music soothes the savage beast....
I have read many historical romance stories, most often preferring those set in medieval times, and in the areas of England/Ireland/Scotland. This one has a very good story, with a conspiracy against king and country. It was very entertaining.
Yes. It is exciting, has good character development, interesting twists and great for those enjoying historical settings.
First off regarding the narrator, unlike many of the other reviews I did not have much of a problem with this narrator.
Although I do agree that he is definitely not as good with the Scottish accent as Davina Porter, and definitely not the wide range of voices that she is capable of developing for the characters,
I found his voice to be pleasant and overall not too bad.
If you are looking for another outlander, this is not it.
I would say that it was a very good book though.
This was the first book that I read by this author and immediately downloaded the next when I finished it.
I found the characters to be very engaging and well-developed.
It was a very sweet love story that I look forward to listening to again in the future.
I will definitely read more books by this author.
It is a fun story , love the history
The way the to main characters met.
The halting cadence of this narrator spoiled a perfectly good story!
Despite the awful narration, the story itself is worth a listen.
