Publisher's Summary

Eric Murray, the youngest of his brothers, is determined to gain his rightful inheritance after 13 years of bitter dispute with his father's family. Starting out alone to confront his tight-fisted kinsmen, he encounters a chestnut-haired beauty set upon by thieves. When she begs for Eric's protection for herself and her infant nephew, Eric promises to deliver them to the safety of her family.

Bethia Drummond has tried desperately to ignore her attraction to the azure-eyed stranger. Still, Eric Murray is Bethia's only hope of escaping her ruthless kin, who plan to kill her and her orphaned nephew and claim their inherited land. Then Bethia learns that Eric, too, is seeking land and coin from his own kin - her family's closest allies. How could she love a man she might one day be forced to stand against? And yet she cannot ignore what her troubled heart knows - that this proud knight is her very destiny.

    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

    "I PROMISE IT'S A GREAT HIGHLAND ROMANCE"

    As with all the Murray books - they are filled with... yes, I'll say it again, HHH (Handsome Highland Hunks) and this one has the most handsome but he is so much more than a pretty face - he's loyal, brave, and true.

    This one seemed to pack so much into it - lasses to be won, battles to plan, the King to see, old enemies to kill, find out who your true kin is, a birthright to claim back, a bride to woo bed and wed etc etc etc that you can't help but be impressed at HH's writing abilities as she entwines the plot with lots of sub plots effortlessly.

    Worth a credit? Yes and I've happily spent the credits and downloaded all he Highland books.

    "Keeps up it's promise!"

    This is a good one! I love that Eric sees to the heart of Bethia and helps her to see the truth as well. They both help each other along and this becomes a great love story (of course) They are young and you can tell from their issues, and their emotions, but they are a fiery pair!

    Worth the credit. I'm not sure if I will continue the series or not, I see good things about the future books and I understand the series (18 books long) spans 4 generations but it looks like the Murrays will be seen in some ways in a negative light, which I hate to see the people I put onto a pedestal that way, but I will probably give in and find I love them.

    "VERY disappointed - and so many good reviews!"
    What would have made Highland Promise better?

    Where do I start? The narration might not have been so bad if the story had been better.


    What was most disappointing about Hannah Howell’s story?

    The heroine! How many times can she think it's "safe" to go out unprotected, and every time she's attacked? Not very quick witted. The sex was rather ho-hum as well.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Unable to distinguish her "male" voices from certain female characters. Male voices too gravelly.


    What character would you cut from Highland Promise?

    The heroine. She's a dim-witted dud.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is also the weary conundrum of a couple unwilling to each be the one to admit to being in love first - so they both "hold back" certain truths.

    "Good Scottish romance"

    This was better than the first two. I enjoyed this book and I guess that's what is needed sometime.

    "excellent series!!!"

    I really liked this series & hated to see it end. The narrator was good I'm really glad the same one was used for the entire series. It made it easy to slip back into the story. I hope to listen to more highland romances from Hannah.
