Highland Surrender | [Tracy Brogan]

Highland Surrender

Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery. To seal a fragile truce, they have traded her hand in marriage to their sworn enemy, a man she has never met, a man she was raised to despise. With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: Though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart. Commanded into marriage by the king, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed.

Publisher's Summary

Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery. To seal a fragile truce, they have traded her hand in marriage to their sworn enemy, a man she has never met, a man she was raised to despise. With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: Though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart.

Commanded into marriage by the king, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed. But Myles quickly realizes Fiona Sinclair isn’t some common wench: She has a warrior’s spirit and a fierce pride that only a fool would try to tame. And Myles Campbell is no fool. Their marriage was meant to unite warring clans. They never imagined it would ignite a once-in-a-lifetime love….

    "Yea! One I finished!"

    I am so picky when it comes to audiobooks and narrators. This was a great story, it held my attention the whole time. I love this narrator! The only negative is that I felt like it was a little light on the romance.

    "Not happy ***"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really...it was hard listening to the characters monologue. The narration of the book was ok. It was just when she was speaking as the characters that made it bad.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tracy Brogan before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first Tracy Brogan book


    What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

    The characters were unbelievable. It was hard to tell them apart.


    Could you see Highland Surrender being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not sure, because of the narration it was a hard book to get into

    "Excellent suprise"

    I really did not know what to expect of this book and purchased it on a whim. I'm really glad I did. I loved it! Once I started listening I became obsessed with completing the book. The narrator was great and the stroy line kept me interested till the end. I love highland romance novels and I hope to see some more from this author.

    "Awful Narration Kills the Story"

    Tried to ignore the reader's strident effort at the reproducing the characters' accents because the story was interesting at times. I could feel my throat clutching in response to her grasping and straining her way through this. Can't understand others' positive reviews for her performance. To my mind, this is someone who needs more training at being a reader or needs to find another field. I'll be returning this one.

    Story
    "Narrator is awful :-("

    The only reason why I struggled through this book, is because the story is really nice. The narrator has this habit of ending nearly each sentence on a higher note which makes her sound like she's in pain (or annoyed). Her accents are really excellent though. I wont purchase another book with the same narrator, but will with the same author.

    Story
    "better buy in print"
    What would have made Highland Surrender better?

    another performer, who's every sentence wouldn't sound like she is going to cry. right now.


    What was most disappointing about Tracy Brogan’s story?

    actually, i can't judge the story. I was not able to listen it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sarah Coomes?

    i don't know, anyone. It's a "scottish" tale but does it really have to be spoken so?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    physical pain

    "Can't get past the narration"
    Would you try another book from Tracy Brogan and/or Sarah Coomes?

    Sarah Coomes, probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Coomes’s performances?

    In this book, her Scottish accent sounds more like she's constantly asking a question when she's actually making a statement. Like she's a Scottish valley girl, it's very annoying. She has a pleasant voice, though.


    Was Highland Surrender worth the listening time?

    I haven't been able to finish the first part yet. The story is okay so far but I can't get past the narration.

    "Good Story with interesting twists"
    Where does Highland Surrender rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the more intriguing books I have listened to


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Highland Surrender?

    The revelations between the two families


    What does Sarah Coomes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents. At first it was annoying, but as the story went on I got used to it and it didn't bother me that much. It actually made the story more compelling and entertaining


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Scottish Hatfield and McCoys in an unforgettable battle


    Any additional comments?

    Not a fan of Scottish novels, wouldn't have read it otherwise. Was a good listen and the plot twists were surprising. If you can tolerate the accents, you should enjoy the story alot.

    "Good story...narrator lacking"

    I am only partway through this audiobook but the narration has driven me to review early. I apologize that i have more to say about the narrator than the story. The story is good so far, nothing unique but im biased since this is my bread and butter genre. It takes a lot for me to dislike any type of highland romance. I don't care for how stubborn Fiona is. She's so angry at her husband when she has no choice in the matter. her attitude makes things worse for herself. She does eventually come around which is good and makes the story much more interesting.

    The narrator is another story entirely. She does not do men's voices well and almost every sentence comes out like a question. It is annoying and is utterly destroying this experience. She is...I think the best way to describe it would be jerky. In some areas the emotion she tries to convey is completely wrong, and she occasionally gets shrill. In some places she over-articulates so much that you get distracted. It's like she's trying too hard. I don't know if I will ever listen to this or recommend it to anyone else because the narrator is...ugh. Her voice is very pretty, but the fact that every single sentence comes out as a question makes me want to pull my hair out. I can't get past that bit of annoyance. Not worth a credit, but if its on sale for less than 5 bucks just buy it if you can tolerate the constant annoyance.
