Lachlan Maclean will do whatever it takes to protect his clan - even if it means abducting the most willful woman in the Highlands with the secret intention of wooing her for marriage. A leader possessing brute strength and an imposing command, Lachlan is unprepared for the beautiful spitfire Flora MacLeod, who jeopardizes his plans to save his clan and digs beneath his hard, chiseled exterior to expose a tenderness that may be his undoing.
The greatest marriage prize in the Highlands, Flora is determined at all costs to avoid her mother's fate of being bartered away as a political pawn. Vowing to make her captor pay for his ruthlessness, she boldly engages him in a battle of wills, sweetening the challenge with dangerous passion - even as the lingering curse and deadly ghosts of a past tragedy reach out to thwart a tender love that has yet to be spoken.

"A high-spirited captive/captor tale that sets the pages on fire with delectable repartee and simmering sexual tension." (Romantic Times)
Never judge a book by its movie
Absolutely, (in fact I did already) These are great books with amazing historical accuracy. You get lost listening. I love Antony Ferguson's voice
The Prologue which is the story of the Lady Elizabeth Campbell Maclean was betrayed by her Husband The Chief Maclean, as he plots her murder, making it look like an accident. He does this because he wishes to remarry a women who can give him heirs .. The guy is quite an #%^#^* so like a good scorned wife, she curses her husband's clan for centuries.... Very dramatic story...
Flora Macleod is kidnapped at the beginning of the book. Halfway through the story another attempt is made to kidnap her from her previous kidnapper. Is was quite humorous.
There is a scene where Fiona attempts to escape by way of the sea... but, she can't swim.Lachlan ( her kidnapper) saves her, and they both realize each others importance.
This is book 3 in the Macleod's of Skye series. It wasn't my favourite, but it was still one of the best books by Monica Macarty.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
Monica McCarty is my biggest find of the year! I think I have listened to all her books. The historical accurracy blows me away. All her books are awesome.
The story starts out good, and actually has a pretty good story line, but it only covers about half the audiobook. The other half is taken up with her description of her kidnapper's strong body, face, hair, etc. and him describing her attributes ... of them telling what they would like to do to each other, and with what they actually do to each other.
I think this book would be better if they have an abridged copy. The story would be entertaining if it didn't move so slowly, because of the many 'filler words'.
I didn't know about the narrator at first, because of the way he structures and emphasizes his sentences, but once you get used to it, he's actually quite good. He has a nice voice, and does pretty good with female voices.
I don't know if I would recommend it, but it's better than some others I've heard lately.
The 3rd book in this series did not disappoint. It was a grest conculsion to the series. The narrator is great he really make sthe story come alive. As with all Monica's books the highlanders are your dreams come true handsome, stong men with a lasting love for their family and woman.
Monica McCarty always tells a good story, but as usual the narrator makes or in this case,
breaks it. For whatever reason, I sensed a lack of feeling from him.With the right narrator this story could have been SO much better.
