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 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.
This is a great continuation of the series to the Montgomery and Armstrongs. If you haven't listened to the 1st book, I highly recommend it before listening to this one. You'll get a better background of the characters. So as this series contines on, we find an imprisoned lass from the evil Ian McHugh who is rescued from a lifetime of sin by Bowen Montgomery. She is ashamed of herself that Ian imprisioned her for a year and was taken advantage of. She's assured in her mind that her future lies in living in a convent for the rest of her life and that no one would want a lass that has a bad reputation. But low and behold, Bowen comes into the McHugh keep and stirs things up. You're left with a fairy tale ending and a good highland love story. Definately worth the credit if you enjoyed the first book...I can't wait for more stories to come. Good author and narrator.
Maya Banks hits another home run with Highlander Most Wanted, the sequel to Never Seduce a Scot. This story picks up seamlessly from book 1 when Bowen Montgomery and others come to the McHugh keep. The interaction between the characters is deep, giving you the feeling that you know these people. The story is about overcoming obstacles, the will to survive and love. I am surprised at how quickly I can get lost in these books and am dying of anticipation for book three.
Kirsten Potter gives an emotional performance adding another dimension to the story. She does excellent with men and women's voices alike. She speeds up narration during the intense moments increasing the feeling of urgency. There is a great amount of feeling in her voice throughout the entire performance. The book is great on its own, but it becomes exceptional with Kirsten's narration.
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!
