    Story
    "Great romance, wonderful imagery, excellent plot!"

    My first Hannah Howell novel, and all I can say is I am impressed. Ms. Howell is very talented in her ability to draw me into the story and to become absorbed into her amazing world building. This book had the perfect combination of romance, love, battle, family drama, intrigue and scheming to please all fans of Highlander romance. From the moment Storm blew into Tavis MacLagan life, it was changed forever. She is a force of nature and at their first meeting, when she was a young girl; Tavis and his whole clan knew they were witnessing something special. Years later when another opportunity came around for him to claim her as a woman, he jumps at the chance. Now she is his prisoner and he will possess her body, but nothing more. Storm has an amazing ability to weave magic and capture the whole MacLagan clan with her mere presence. I enjoyed the progression of Tavis and Storm’s relationship, life in the clan and the intricacies that it entailed. I also appreciated the glimpse of these turbulent times and to witness how love could cure generations of fighting and change the future. I found the storyline strong and well-paced; excellence all around. It’s a complete package of history, love and action with amazing characters, exciting times and a titillating plot. If you enjoy this genre, you really should pick up a copy of His Bonnie Bride.

    "Entertaining Wishy-Washy Highlander!!"

    This one was in my library for a while and I finally got the chance to listen to it. I enjoyed this book because it kept my interest throughout. This entertaining story has adventure, romance, slight mystery, family struggles and intrigue. My only negative statement is that it lacked some believability. Both the hero and the heroine seemed a little over the top with their "feelings'. Storm seems too perfect at times and lacked emotional strength. Tavis is the typical "play the field" type of guy who was a bit wishy-washy. (So many times I just wanted to say "Get some backbone you idiot!). The other characters I found more acceptable and realistic. That being said, I still recommend this book and am giving this story 4 stars because it was the type of book you can't put down.....I had to know how it ended.

    The narrator also made it easy to listen to. Her accents were really good for each character..

    "IT'S THE COMPLETE PACKAGE FOR ANY H/R LOVER"

    Well, Hannah Howell has really delivered a very captivating, emotional, truly enjoyable story and, from the moment it started, until it's ohh sooo sweet end, I was caught up in all the drama, intrigue and passion that this well-written book delivers to it's unsuspecting audience.

    There's a strong, witty, spirited, redheaded heroine aptly named Storm and a handsome, Rogue of a Highlander called Tavis and when he kidnaps her for ransom little does he realise his fate is about to change forever. Although he has every right to 'claim her' he bides his time knowing the rewards he reaps will be that much greater and sweeter..... and so they are.

    There are so many sub plots expertly weaved throughout this action-packed plot - an evil Stepmother and her equally evil lover, feuding families, greed, revenge, traitors, murder attempts, spurned lovers, jealous bystanders, battles, orgies, lust, passion, sex (not too graphic), great family dynamics and loving Fathers. But meshing it all together is the all consuming romance as Storm gives Tavis everything but all his once broken heart can do is take and then finally break.

    MA does a great job with all the English and Scottish accents breathing life and feelings into the characters and in doing so, transforms mere words into a thoroughly enjoyable listen that had me cursing anything or anyone that made me have to press the 'Pause' button.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely the best HH Historical Highland Romance book so far that had me questioning "who needs sleep anyway?" as dawn broke. So that folks is a YES.

    Story
    "Horrible! Outdated and Annoying."
    What was most disappointing about Hannah Howell’s story?

    I hated how so many private moments played out in front of people. It was a spectacle and everyone was always in their business. From announcing that Tavis was going to basically rape Storm to having family members walk into the room as Tavis and Storm lay their naked to the highly inappropriate conversations about sex that Storm had with her father. Ick! It just really irritated me. And it was just stupid with way too much sex and not enough character development. Not a good book at all!


    Have you listened to any of MacNab Ashford’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    MacNab Ashford was really good. She did an excellent job of narrating. It was just a horrible story.


    What character would you cut from His Bonnie Bride?

    None. I would just make them more believable people and I would develop them in a more rounded way. It was all about sex and had very little to do with love or admiration or honor.

    Story
    "MON O TONE"

    The first thing I generally notice about an audiobook is the narration. And the narration of this book makes me think that a computer program is reading out loud. No emotion. Flat. Kind of fast. The only difference with the "voices" of the characters is whether the character is male or female, with slight alterations of accents.
    The second thing I notice is the story. Weirdly, almost a match with the narration. No emotion. Flat. Kind of fast. With some Shakespeare thrown it. If this is the way the author normally writes, I think I'll avoid her in the future...and the narrator.

    "Enjoyable....great characters & sweet H/R"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a great story and it has super characters. Even supporting characters are wonderful! I love stories with good characters. So if the "meat" of the story ... Or some elements were slightly undeveloped. .... The characters made up for it.


    Which character – as performed by MacNab Ashford – was your favorite?

    I love Ashford. She is one of my favorite narrators. Her Storm was fabulous!


    Any additional comments?

    There were some crazy unexpected elements to the story that were kinda shocking... But definitely added to the overall book. I almost listened to this book in one day....I really enjoyed it. I plan on listening to the next book very soon.

    "Pleasant enough"

    MacNab Ashford is a good narrator. The story line itself was interesting but it was laced with "tales from the dark side" of people's morality. Storm did not give much of a fight to save her virtues. Did people really behave like that then? I wonder....

    Story
    "Excellent Plot; Would Prefer Better Writing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    While the plot was engaging, the writing was well, sort of hokey, I thought. I found myself rolling my eyes frequently. The plot, however, did hold my attention to the end. Sorry, but I just didn't like the heroine's name either, Storm. Storm? Really?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the two fathers, the clan chieftains. The way they dealt with their children was not unlike many of today's parents. I definitely recognized their frustrations.


    Did His Bonnie Bride inspire you to do anything?

    Not really. I might try another Hannah Howell though just to see if her writing is any different. I hope the plot will be as good.
