Genevieve McInnis is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen's rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress - something warm, wicked, and tempting.
Bowen seizes his enemy's keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He's enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer's skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her - even if it means losing her forever.

Maya you out did yourself. I think I ran through every possible emotion while listening to this story. Yes, I did cry. Thank you, I loved this book. I cannot wait for the next book.
I have alway enjoyed being read to, but when found audible it was a dream come true, love listening to books
WHEN BOWEN SHOW GENEVIEVE WHAT LOVE SHOW BETWEEN A WOMAN AND MAN
HOW HE TOOK HER AWAY FROM MCHUGH KEEP AND KEPT HER SAFE
HOW SHE SAVED BOWEN LIFE WITH A BOW ARROW
I THOUGH IT WAS A GOOD BOOK BUT IT DIDN'T MAKE ME CRY OR LAUGH
I read so I can write
This is a great story about the dependency of clansmen and women on their lairds and how pathatic it is that the women and children have to be exposed to e anger and or foolishness of men.
Past that it is a great story of a romance that could have no hope for coming into fruition, a story of a woman who has been unmercifully abused and permanently marked both physically and emotionally and a man who decides to love her despite everything.
Great story. Another winner from Maya Banks and Kirsten Potter.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I expected more from this Highlander series...
I have been waiting forever the this Highlander series to update on Audible and I am a little upset... I wanted a bit more. Don't get me wrong... this was well worth the wait/credit...but I just expect a bit more. Maybe like the second book in the McCabe Highlander Series by Banks I guess... That series was just awesome... I still have dreams about the McCabe brothers...!!! No such luck here with the Montgomerys or Armstrongs...
This was a good love story... but I didn't like tha fact that something is damage with the heroines in all of these books. That is kind of messed up a bit to me... Kind of sad... But still a good book. I nice romance read/listen... The smex was not all that great actually. I think I skipped past a couple of scences... So it was nothing spectacular.
Narrations was great though.. Potter is a great Highlander narrator.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Maya Banks best series are her Highlanders books and this one doesn't not disappoint. She brings out a huge range of emotion and you deeply care for Genevieve from the very start. There is just no bad part in the book, its a roller coaster ride that pulls on your heart strings. Get it, you'll see what I'm talking about and you won't be disappointed!
The entire Story was great from start to finish.
Bowen and his unconditional love! Genevieve and her perseverance!.
Her accent and emphasis that she gives to EACH and EVERY character. She is one of the best, and I deliberately seek out books that she narrates.
Holy smokes yes... I only put it down when I absolutely had to.
Can't wait for the next one Maya, and I give this one a 2nd listen.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Yes. We'll written, different plot twist, same sexy highlanders!
Banks's Seduction of a Highland Lass.. Very similar but this book offers a bit of a twist.
She's not as big a character in this book but is in the first... But I love how she plays Rory. Potter is the very best there is! She makes me lose myself in every book she narrates. She is the PERFECT ACCENT narrator. They ALL sound real and so believable. Men and women and children alike... She is THE BEST!
Yes yes yes! Sleep is overrated. This book was impossible to pause!
While the Montgomery and Armstrong Series is WONDERFUL....it is not quite as good as Banks's McCabe Series. The McCabe Series is my all time favorite....Montgomery and Armstrong series is a close second! Banks is BRILLIANT! I wish she wrote only highland romances because she does them so perfectly.
This books title doesn't make any sense once the book is listened to.....but that's just a petty thought.
The narrator...she does a great job with the voices....
When Genevieve comes back and Bowen is looking down..and she breaks away from everyone else racing on horseback towards him.
Yes....took me two days
I read the book first before getting it on audio and in my opinion, this is the best Highlander based story that I have read or listened to.
Both books in the series are good! I really loved this one, it was so heartwarming and delightful to listen to. When you listen to the narration, you get a sense of what the characters face as opposed to just reading it. I found this story so enjoyable just because it gives you that perspective of so many different emotions that take place.
It was good to read a story with a romance appeal (not just lots of sex) and it made me cry too when I read it the first time, then again when I listened!
I just hope that more books come out of this series with some of the other characters.
Love to read!
This book started off really well with quite a bit of drama and tension. I didn't want to stop listening until about half way through. The story suddenly became stagnant and didn't seem to go anywhere. I had to make myself finish it. I really wish Maya Banks had done something with the last half, it could have been an excellent book.
