After losing his betrothed, Ceana, to a Lowlander, Laird Gabriel MacKinnon is charged with saving her cousin along with a brood of children from an impenetrable castle. Though the lady he's been tasked with protecting has been accused of a heinous crime, Gabriel has no fear of her. In fact he's a little irritated at the prospect of delivering her to her kin. But this hardened, cold warrior just may find his heart melting, for the hellion brings out a passionate side he'd thought long buried.
Lady Brenna has had more than her share of hardships, and when freedom looks to be on the brink of her horizon, she's not about to let some moody Highlander take it all away. She'll stop at nothing to keep her children safe - and to guard her heart - even though the warrior's heated kiss threatens to change every vow she's ever made and every belief about love she's ever known.
Contains mature themes.

I just couldn't take all the inconsistencies. H&H both, but mostly Heroine spent most of the time going from absolute hatred, fear and distrust to absolute adoration and complete trust with no reason for either. Instant attraction is fine, but the relationship never built or over came issues. It just flip flopped back and forth. Brenna would consent to do this or that and then right in the middle suddenly stop and demand something stupid before she would go on. Plus, I usually like Antony Ferguson as a narrator, but this time, I had to laugh every time he said Brenner instead of Brenna.
Did something different this time with a book. I bought the audio before the ebook. Absolutely loved it. Story was wonderful, narrative was great. Will absolutely buy more books from this author..
The story seems a little forced. Very predictable. there really wasn't much excitement and the parts that should have been very sexy came of as flat. The narrator did a fair job of the warrior's voice,. but wasn't so excitingas a woman.
