    Story
    "Wow! I wasn't expecting this much sensuality!"

    Since I try not to read "spoiler" reviews before I listen to a book....this book was a bit of a shocker to me. I knew it was a highlander story but I didn't know it would be so sensual. The sensuality just kept building and building throughout the story which it made it difficult to put down.

    I thought it was refreshing for the book to be told in the 'first person'. It seemed to make the story more intimate. The narrator was wonderful and she really captured the essence of the story.

    This one is now on my repeat list!

    Story
    "LOOOOOOOOOVED!! An Absolute THRILL!"
    Would you listen to Highlander Taken again? Why?

    Absolutely- I will! This was one of the most pleasurable listening experiences I've had. The story is magnificent and the narrator is one of the best I've heard. She completely brought the story to life by creating a mood and super realistic characters. The story built to a climax perfectly (give it time b/c the story starts slowly but then builds and builds until you won't be able to stop) and the ending was sublime.... I LOVED IT!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    KADE! He is the ultimate highland warrior- strong, tough, moody, and introspective, with a huge heart and an unquenchable determination to win Stella's heart. A SEX GOD! Every woman needs a Kade.


    What does Gemma Johansson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really deserves credit. She MADE this story for me. I usually hate first person narrative, as it can be like listening to someone reading their journal, but with Gemma Johansson's narration I felt as if I was living the story through Stella. She captured the essence beautifully with a great accent, great characters and an emotionally stirring style.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Lose yourself in this electryfying highland tale of intimacy and true love.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to hearing more from Juliet Miller and Gemma Johansson.

    Story
    "Sensual - Kade is amazing!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a very sensual, edgy, romantic story.


    What other book might you compare Highlander Taken to and why?

    While the story isn't NEW ... its still good. It is very similar to Never Love a Highlander by Maya Banks.


    What about Gemma Johansson’s performance did you like?

    Gemma is great! I will seek out more of her performances!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wasn't as riveted at all times, but near the end I could NOT tear myself away. I listened to the last 6 hours straight.


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning was slow....but once Kade was in the story most of the time...it really picked up!

    Story
    "A BATTLE SCARRED WARRIOR & A MEEK VIRGIN... DELISH"

    Well I thought I was a BIG fan of kilt wearing Highlanders but this book proved me wrong 'cause swoon-worthy, leather troozer clad, weapon-wielding Highland Warriors certainly get my vote too.

    This was a delicious listen even though I don't really like books only told in the 'first person' but this somehow captures your interest as the plight and life of Stella slowly unravels and sucks you right in as she is forced to wed above mentioned handsome Highland hunk Kade. It's a tender, sweet, sexy love story but it's also got interesting sub plots that's filled with either likeable, manipulative, rough, dislikable or just plain evil characters all waiting to help, hinder or double cross the newly weds so sacrifice, revenge and murder are waiting in the wings for their chance to join in.

    Kade promises not to consummate the marriage for one whole month as Stella is so frightened of him so instead he tortures her with desire as he masterfully and skilfully stokes and strokes the flames of her passion in some very hot and imaginative ways and yet he's so kind, thoughtful and protective towards her too so who wouldn't melt in his arms. It's a sensual overload journey that she's on so for those of you who prefer a 'sex free' listen then perhaps look elsewhere.

    This is actually book 2 of The Clan Mackenzie trilogy but I didn't feel it mattered at all, I'm just hoping Audible will soon stock the others.

    Worth a credit? Yes, another highland tale that's a scorcher too.

    Story
    "Snooze Fest"

    I've never not liked the main character as much as I didn't like Stella. Maybe it was the fact the entire story is written in first person. It's like listening to a really long letter by a naive and milquetoast with no passion. The only saving grace is the narration. Gemma Johansson did a great job with a nice Scottish accent (both male and female). She did an amazing job considering the script.

    Story
    "Decent plot, over discriptive prose"
    What could Juliette Miller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The plot was decent, but after a while I started to tune out during some of the longer descriptive passages. They tended to get very repetitive. I don't think I will be buying anything else by this author.


    What does Gemma Johansson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was quite good. Pleasant speaking voice and good way of differentiating the characters.

    Story
    "An adventure through the highlands"
    Would you listen to Highlander Taken again? Why?

    Yes I would. It was intertaining, and it was the 2nd book to it's seris, which I didn't know when I first bought, and listened to this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sexual tension, the fact there is a traidor among them. How as you listen you hear Stella grow, and become less frightened. This book is adveture, tention.... and romance, but it is much more then romane, but yes it does have graphic sex seens.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I thought the narration was slow, also I didn't like how it was Stella telling her own story. I felt like she reused words, and phrases to much.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just listening to Stella grow more couragous, and she was able to do so because of the freedom her husband gave to her.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all it was a great listen. One I will probably listen to again.

    Story
    "I want my own Cade"

    I don't read many books written in the first person so when it first started I was disappointed but that quickly gave way to interest which gave way to heart palpitations. When Stella finds herself engaged and married the Cade MacKennzie she fears he will be like every other man in her life, awful. She dreads being married to someone known as a "brute". Having only known Pain and betrayal at the hands of her father and his men, she fears her new husband and his reputation. The journey the author takes us on is one of a young girl learning that everyone has there faults and virtues as she explores her new marriage and life in the midst of turmoil and upheaval. Very well narrated and so touching you will fall in love with both characters.
