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.

Yes, I've become a fan of historical romance. This story was predictable but I loved the journey
I fell in love with Bowden. I thought no one could be as memorable as Graeme from Book 1. He was strong and kind.
About half way through the book I guessed at the rest of the story and was unfortunately right on all points. That said, it's still a good story and a great way to escape for a while.
I have enjoyed the first two books of this series. Very good narrative, that's so important! I love the characters and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of them!
Yes, this story was very heart breaking and heart warming all at the same time. Definitely worth a credit.
Bowen.. I loved how he was everything you would hope a man would be. Tough and tender at the same time. He was awesome, every girls dream.
Not sure, but she did an excellent job. Would listen to her again.
Oh my gosh, so many! This was a fantastic book.
Maya Banks always delivers a solid historical Scottish romance. I am always confident that I'll enjoy her story and really like her characters. Now I'm stuck waiting on the next book in the series.
The narrator was very good. She has narrated the other Scottish romance novels for Maya Banks and like Maya, she always delivers.
Good use of credit!!!! Can't wait for the next book.
This story had an interesting premise, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. Without giving away too much, I had a hard time believing everyone would just forgive the betrayal like they did. I also thought Bowen and Genevieve were way too sappy. And particularly in the first half of the book, there was too much time spent rehashing book one as well as on Genevieve's internal dialogue. In other words, it got repetitive. Overall, I still enjoyed the story but I'd say it was average.
I do hope they put book 3 on Audible.
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
What's not to love, Highlanders, a great story, and a wonderful narrator! The first book was also great! I would recommend listening in order. The characters and stories are very believable.
It was packed full of action, romance and drama. I was swept in and floated along for the emotional ride. Couldn't stop listening until the end.
