Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, young Elspeth Murray rescued a wounded knight and lost her heart forever. Now a stunning beauty and gifted healer, she is reunited with Cormac Armstrong when he saves her from an unwanted suitor. But Cormac is promised to another, a woman who has blinded him to her ruthlessness. Now Elspeth must battle against the odds to claim a man and a love she will not be denied.

Cormac is stunned by the desire Elspeth's kiss awakens - and cannot resist the temptation she offers. A man of honor, he is torn by his pledge to another and his growing need for Elspeth. Blinded by duty and indecision, he is unaware that he is a pawn in a clever and deadly trap from which Elspeth is desperate to save him. But by the time he understands her gift of selfless devotion will it be too late to claim this perfect love?

    "Great start to a new Highland Clan"

    Sexy Highland warrior Cormac rescues his 'soul mate' who had rescued him 10 years ago when she was but a bonny wee girl of 9. Elspeth has loved and dreamed of the boy she saved all those years ago then, unbelievably, there he is rescuing her from the clutches of a demented Laird who has kidnapped her and is determined to marry her.

    Cormac and Elpeth flee to the Royal Court but on the way Elspeth must convince him to break a vow to another beauty by any means she can - including sex.

    Lovely story, yes a little unbelievable, but my fellow romance listeners - that's why we love them so much!!

    "Hannah Howell Read Beautifully!"

    I have always wanted to be able to listen to Ms. Howell's books, but I feared that the accents wouldn't be handled well. I was completely satisfied by Ms.Dawe's narration. I have always loved Ms. Howell's books. Ms. Dawe made them sound just the way I thought they would in my head. Highlanders in love! Swords! Wonderful!

    "VT. FAN"
    If you could sum up Highland Vow in three words, what would they be?

    ABOUT TIME AUDIBLE


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ELSBETH. STRONG FEMALE LEAD. KNOW WHAT SHE WANTS AND GOES FOR IT.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    DAWE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. ABSOLUTELY NOONE BETTER TO DO A HIGHLAND ROMANCE NOVEL. I HOPE THE REST OF HANNAH HOWELLS BOOKS WILL BE IN AUDIO FORM AND THAT DAWE CONTINUES TO NARRATE THEM.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    ANGELA DAWE MADE THIS BOOK COME TO LIFE FOR ME. THE CHARACTERS WERE SO VERY VERY WELL DONE. YOU LAUGH AND CRY AND MISS THEM TERRIBLY WHEN DONE. THATS A GOOD AUTHOR AND NARRATOR.


    Any additional comments?

    ALL OF HANNAH HOWELLS BOOKS SHOULD BE MADE INTO AUDIO AND ANGELA DAWE SHOULD DO THEM.

    Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.

    "One of my favorites!"

    This was the first book of Hannah Howell that I listened to and I intend to listen to all the others. Even though technically this is Book 4 of the Murray Family Series, it is the first book about the Daughters so I didn't feel like I missed anything. I particularly love how this author's female characters are strong and capable.

    "CHANCES & RISK"

    Highland Vow is filled with risk, sacrifice, trust issues, lies, deceit, murder, heartbreak, love, and desire...should I go on? :) I think the most important lesson learned was to pay attention to what is right in front of you, whether good or bad, before it is too late.

    The characters were really good! Elspeth was so determined from the beginning, and despite the risk and sacrifice she gave, I respect her most for her bravery and trust she gave to someone she honestly hardly knew. Cormac on the other hand, although he made me angry at his bad choices, I must give him props for his loyalty. I know that sounds bad considering what Elspeth goes through, but I feel it gave him character, defining him, and earning him the respect of many.

    Although overall predictable, it did throw me for a loop in many instances making me second-guess myself. Angela Dawe narration was sometimes hard to understand and dull at times, but overall she was pretty good with her accents and voice distinctions.

    In the end...Highland Vow was a great historical love story and I would definitely recommend it!

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    "Satisfactory listen"

    Predictable story, but Howell's descriptions of highland life were fairly well done. Listen to this one while busy with other things.
