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, 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.
A great read, hot and INTERESTING
It is great is all I can say. I truly enjoyed this one as it is my first Maya Banks and I shall read more of hers.
She makes every character come to life. Great Reader
Hot and Steamy
Make sure you start reading Maya Banks for interesting love life!
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
This one series ranks high in my book. The main character was treated horribly, but was very strong.
When she leaves. Don't want to say more to give it away.
Wild about books.
There are twist and turns and a great plot. Finally it is known who the mystery lady was. This is her story. If you like strong ladies this is your book. And what a great hero that finds her. I like the fact you don't have to have the first book or the next. Each one will stand on its own. There is murder, hate, love and a happy ever after. Along with some hot love going on.
Kristen Potter is always the best at telling the story. So use your creidt or spend your money either way its worth it.
Say something about yourself!
This is the second book in the series and I am definitely not disappointed. Genevieve McInnes and Bowen Montgomery brother of Graeme Montgomer fall in love even though Genevieve was kept captive by at McHughs land and rape repeated. All the women in this series so far is not perfect Evenly Graeme wife from book one is deaf and in book two Genevieve has a scare on her face yet they both find love.
Kristen Potter is one of my favorite narrator every time I listen to a book she reads I feel like I am right there witnessing whats going on.
