    "love this series"

    Love this series, can't wait to listen to the third book. The narrator is good, the accents sometimes seem a little forced, but overall he does a good job even with the female voices. I like the imperfections of the lead characters, especially Angus, and how he overcomes those. And I always like it when the women are strong, even in an era when they had so few rights.

    "Again. Get a better Narrator~~~~"

    Again, I appreciate all the work an author goes to in writing a book. However; do they bother to listen to their work once the narrator has completed it??!! Audio books is a huge venue for income for these authors! Please, take as diligent time choosing someone to read your book as you do in writing them! I will NOT buy another one of Julianne MacLean's books anywhere on audio if done by Antony Ferguson. And I'm but one person. However; these audio books are review by the customer and I for one pay close attention to what is written before I spend my money. I rather believe others do as well. Just saying~~~~~Pay Attention.

    I listened to the first book by Julianne MacLean & enjoyed it. The second book was just as good and I liked how the two books came together. I loved them both!

    "Good 2nd book in the Highland warrior romance"

    Good follow on story - it 's 2 years on and this is the tale of Angus who betrayed his best friend in book 1 and his torment but final redemption thanks to Gaendolene who first fights against him then fights for him. Nice.

    I thought the narrator did a good job too.

    So, worth the credit? Definitely.

    "My Last in the Series"

    2.5 stars really

    The author did do a good job with making the hero a ruthless bad ass with redeeming qualities and I liked the heroine much better in this installment. But something about MacLean's choice of words frequently takes me out of the story. For example when I hear someone talking about being 'kicked in the nuggets', it reminds me more of a 12-year-old American middle school kid than a historical Highland warrior. Maybe I'm wrong and that was an olden time saying of yore... but it didn't feel right. And that's just one example.

    Also, I personally do not like to be spoon fed what I should feel or told what conclusions to draw. The hero was someone who had betrayed someone close to him. He therefore had trust issues and self esteem issues. I think the average reader is certainly smart enough to put two and two together and realize that a lot of his trust issues comes from the fact that he feels guilty about his mistakes and thinks basically that he can't trust anyone since he can't even trust himself. Yet, there is constant unnecessary navel gazing and self-analysis going on. That threw me out of the time period and made me feel more like I was reading a 'costume drama' rather than being transported to another time/place.

    MacLean obviously has a legion of fans and I can understand it, but I suppose I look for something a bit different in my historicals. I won't be finishing the trilogy.
