Lady Jolene Gerard is running out of time - each moment she remains within the walls of Drumwich Castle she is in jeopardy. Her only chance lies with a prisoner chained to the dungeon walls, a Scotsman who, in return for freedom, helps Jolene and her young nephew escape her cousin's deadly snare. Pursued by murderous villains, Jolene is prepared to fight for her life. But in the arms of rugged Sigimor Cameron, she soon surrenders her heart... He was too late to save the Englishman to whom he owed a blood debt, but not the man's lovely sister. Stunned by his desire for the spirited English lass, Sigimor presses them on to safety, his enemies in dogged pursuit. And while sweet desire speaks a thousand words, the secret they long to share remains locked in a battle of stubborn pride. But when saving Jolene from his enemy leaves Sigimor no choice but to make her his wife, a bargain born of passion can only by sealed by the kiss of true love...

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I somehow got this audiobook for free and I have had the intentions of trying one of Hannah Howell books out for some time. I hate starting a book in the middle of a series but since I had it I decided to go ahead and start on book 10. After listening to the story I realize it can be listened to by itself, but there are other stories and characters from this book that alludes to the previous books. I thought the book itself was just okay. It started off better than it ended. The characters did not endear themselves to me, they too were okay but not rememberable at all. The story was also a bit to sappy for my taste. I doubt I will listen to any more books by this author. I would rather just reread Julie Garwood's Highland books. Angela Dawe is a slow reader but I do like her. I have read other books by her and if the story is good I can ignore the slowness.
Have someone else narrate this book. I like the story but Angela Dawe has an awful cadence it is like fingernails on a chalk board. She goes up and down and screeches her words out.....I will never buy another book narrated by her. She doesn't anticipate the story and her diction shows how little she understands how to tell a story. I have heard 5 year old read better that her.
I like the interaction between Jolene and Sigmor and I have read several of Hannah Howells books, but I will never ever listen to one.
NO not ever again
that was probably the best highlander book I have listened to in a very long time. The narration was excellent...the story was well written and not the usual...arranged marriage scenario. I laughed several times out loud at the banter between the H/H. The female lead was a strong personality and that made for a very interesting story. I would definitely listen to this book again and can't wait for the next one...please please please!!!
