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.

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.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I love this series, love Kristen Potter narrating this book and am really looking forward to more installments. This wasn't my favorite of this author but it was still great to listen to.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
Bowen Montgomery finds true love in the arms of Genevieve McInnes. Genevieve is the ultimate survivor and Bowen her ultimate hero and champion. A torturous experience which ends with a "love conquers all" experience. Although there were times that my stomach hurt in hearing about Genevieve's victimization at the hands of that animal Ian McHugh, the healing power of love is what makes this story very moving. I love the ending...Genevieve is not only vindicated, but empowered with her man at her side. Great read/listen!
Narrator: Kirsten Potter is great! She does a wonderful job of creating unique voices for all of the characters. She made the listening experience very enjoyable.
Absolutely, I was completely in love with the story, the characters and the location. It gave me hours of pleasure and I couldn't wait for the next chapter. I hated to see it end, but I'm looking forward to the next book in this series, Highlander Ever After. I just hope it will be possible to listen to it also. I just want to say that this site is under my husbands name, but I'm his wife, Beverly who actually listens to all the books on this app...
I also listen to Clan Books by Jennifer Ashley and Monica McCarty. Your Books and theirs are about the Highlands, the Scottish Clans and history. Since I love the era and history of the Scottish Highlands I very much enjoy them and never get tired listening about the different Clans.
I listened to her in Never Seduce A Scot, her performance was wonderful. Her accent was perfect for this book, and she made it so pleasant to listen to. I would definitely listen to another book she narrates.
Yes, at times I laughed and cried. But enjoyed every word of it. The Book seemed to draw me into that place and time. One which I hated to leave and wanted more...
I just want to say Thank You to Maya for writing such wonderful Books about a time and place of pleasure and pain, but ending each Book with love and showing the endurance of a family that was made stronger by it.
