Publisher's Summary

Malcolm of Dunroch is a newly chosen Master, a novice with extraordinary and dangerous powers. But he has alreadybroken his vows, and a young woman's death is on his hands. Malcolm is determined to fight his darkest desires, denying himself all pleasure until fate sends him another Innocent, the beautiful book-seller Claire Camden.

Since her mother's murder, Claire has done everything possible to make a safe, secure life for herself in a city where danger lurks on every street corner, especially in the dark of night. But nothing can prepare her for the powerful and sexually magnetic medieval warrior who sweeps her back into his time: a treacherous, frightening world where the hunters and the hunted are one and the same. Claire needs Malcolm to survive, yet she must somehow keep the dangerously seductive Master at arm's length. For Malcolm's soul is at stake, and fulfilling his desires could prove fatal.

    "Would love to hear another narrator do this one!"

    The book is fine. It is the narrator that is terrible. I will not buy another audible book that is narrated by Marguerite Jennings. All of the characters sound the same. Some are just worse than others. Usually, I can't put a book down. But this one is a chore. Ms Joyce's work deserves better.

    "Narrator nasty"

    The narrator reads likes she's on sedatives and her brogue is particularly odd - since when did Scots speak with a Cockney mixed with some sort of weird Philadelphia accent?

    "Time traveling Highlanders!"

    I loved the last Brenda Joyce audible download, A Lady At Last, and this one was very different from her other historicals but just as good. For those of you disappointed with Karen Marie Moning's Darkfever this book satisfy your taste for hot magical Highlanders. Very steamy, very imaginative story. Thanks Brenda Joyce!

    "Read the book instead...."

    Please, don't judge this series by this audiobook... I got hooked on this series (in paperback form) about a year ago and let me tell ya, this audiobook was like nails on a chalkboard for me. The narrator talks soooo sloooowwwwly that it actually caused me to speed it up to
    1 1/2X...not that it made it much better.
    I love this series... I own them all and have reread them all couple of times so I know it it not the author's fault~ I did notice that the rest of the series has a different narrator so maybe those are better.
    Honestly, I finally just shut this audiobook off and chose another one to listen to. I'm sooo glad I got this on the Book 1 of a series sale and only paid $5 bucks or I would have been so bummed!!
    I soooo encourage everyone to always listen to the sample before purchasing audiobooks... I didn't this time and soooo regret it!

    "sex is great - but the rest stinks!"

    overall, the sex is great but the problem is that you have to listen to the whole thing to get any. horrible book! dont bother because there is not enough sex to make up for a lousy story and the main female character is an idiot!

    "I enjoyed it all"

    I enjoyed this book and will listen to it again at a later date. The story was not confusing to me, the characters engaged my interest and I liked the story. By the end it even answered a few of points I was wondering if they were going to go unanswered. I cant say what becuase that would spoil some of the twists for some! I enjoyed it and if you like time travel novels, think most will like this one.

    "The 1st of the Masters of Time"

    This was the first book of Brenda Joyce's that I have read, and the 1st of the Masters of Time series. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It is the perfect combination of action, mystery, suspense, and sex. Just when I thought I had things figured out, something happens and debunked my ideas only to give me new ones. I have already bought the second book and can't wait to start.

    I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.

    "Light and Easy"

    The story is a good one, the characters appealed to me. The narrator, however, simply missed the mark. Like most romances, the emotion and/or sexual scenes can be either intense or corny, depending on how they are portrayed in your mind. When you have a narrator, you are kind of stuck with what you hear, and in most cases, when this narrator read intense emotion, it came off as fairly ridiculous, sort of like a farce of a soap opera, overly dramatic to the point that I had to laugh. Consequently, I had to work around the narrator to enjoy the book, but in the end, the story was worth it. Still, I hate to throw out the baby with the bathwater, so I only subtracted one star for the narration.

    "Save yourself the agony"

    I don't know what is worse- the writing or the narrating.
    Really bad accents, very whiny female and cliche upon cliche... and very poorly written sex scenes to boot!
    Even at the $4.95 sale- not worth it.

    "Don't waste your points on this one"

    Between the bad narration and ridiculous plotline I was seriously displeased I didn't read the reviews on this first. What a waste of my time!
