With his tawny mane, battle-hewn brawn, and ferocious roar, Angus “The Lion” MacDonald is the most fearsome warrior Lady Gwendolen has ever seen - and she is his most glorious conquest. Captured in a surprise attack on her father's castle, Gwendolen is now forced to share her bed with the man who defeated her clan. But, in spite of Angus's overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight. With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile, Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known - and the most intoxicating. Forcing her to become his bride will unite their two clans. But conquering Gwendolen's heart will take all his skills as a lover. Night after night, his touch sets her on fire. Kiss after kiss, his hunger fuels her passion. But, as Gwendolen's body betrays her growing love for Angus, a secret enemy plots to betray them both.

"MacLean ensnares [fans] with her powerful writing and emotional love stories, once again crafting a book to cherish." (Kathe Robin)
I have read the other two books in this series and I must say I enjoyed listening to this story the most. I will have to go back and listen to the others.
In the top 20. I have over 200 books
I really like Antony Ferguson's voice
Looking forward to the next book in this series.
A great listen
the whole book was memorable. I really enjoyed it
Angus and Lachlan were favorites. Lachlan, i would like to watch his character on the screen. Both of them, you will not forget.
Not laugh or cry but interesting that i did not want to quit listening.
i like books that if set in Scotland, the narrator uses the appropriate accent as was done in this book. Really makes you feel you are there.
Good story with Good narrator with great accents!
love the highlanders, love the heroes
Yes, always captivating, taking different paths than expected...very enjoyable.
NOTHING WRONG!He did perfect! Wish he did more historical romances! I love hearing a male voice on these and love the accents this narrator did perfectly...just close my eyes and visualize easily, all 3 books!
Thank you for making this series audio!
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, 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!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
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.
The way the story transforms into a love story.
Can't pick one scene.
Hot, steaming love story. Opposites do attract.
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.
