Publisher's Summary

Disgraced in her father's eyes, Isobel Maitland travels to Scotland, determined to purchase her sister's happiness at the cost of her own. But when her coach is held up and she is abducted by a dangerous highwayman, she faces an unexpected choice: Suffer the loveless union to which she has resigned herself, or marry this ruthless, Scottish outlaw who can ignite her desire with a single touch.

They call him "Diabhal Dubh" - Devil Black - and he spends his days terrorizing the countryside, trying to outdistance the memories that torture him. The King has decreed he must settle and take a wife. And when he steals the alluring woman betrothed to his enemy, Dougal MacRae sees a way to both answer the King's demand and obtain the revenge he has sought so long.

    "Not credit worthy, sorry"

    I usually only buy books that have been heavily reviewed so I can form an opinion before I make purchase. When I saw this one the synopsis intrigued me so I figured I would be guinea pig for this one......fool I.

    Where do I begin? First off....the narrator.....she's not very good and I'm being very charitable choosing these words. I'm thinking this might be her first try at Scottish accents and she needs more practice but the reading was just bad.

    Second, the story is ok and I think I would enjoy reading the book, the plot is good and mildly developed but the intimate scenes are skimpy and vague so if you don't like overtly erotic books you will enjoy this one. Some books can be overly explicit but I would describe tis one borderline YA.

    Lastly, I stuck with it because I started to like the characters inspite of the horrible personalities they were given by the narrator and I felt the author deserved a chance. It's not a stellar book but I have read worse.

    My advice, if you like light historical romance choose the book and don't waste a credit.

    "Just BAD!!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrater....Allison Cope should NEVER read another scottish story she sound like there is stuff in her mouth..


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    rewrite it...........


    How could the performance have been better?

    another narrater


    Any additional comments?

    I have never written a review...but I would not want any one to waste a credit...only if it is free would you want to listen.
