Publisher's Summary

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn-and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons-and embrace a love that means more than revenge or land.

    "I want a Highlander!!"
    If you could sum up In Bed with a Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Seductive, Enveloping


    What other book might you compare In Bed with a Highlander to and why?

    I don't think I could compare it to another book. I dare say that this is the first book, besides my normal authors, that I felt was a real page turner. I loved it on its on, but if I HAD to compare it to another book, despite being two completely different schools of writing, I would have to say the Sleeping Beauty series.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    I loved all the characters she played. Ms. Potter grabbed you with her Scottish accent, and made you feel like you were right there with them. I loved Calen, he is exactly what I would think a Highlander would be.


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

    To get his revenge, he must steal her heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I am in love with the series so far. I love the writing, the performer, Ms. Potter, and the entire book. I am eagerly awaiting more. I <3 Highlanders.

    "Love Me Some Highlanders!"

    I don't know what is it about Scottish accents, but it gets me tingling all over when I hear it and then I imagine someone like Channing Tatum as Ewan. Nice! This is a great love story. Inoccent girl who secretly has a huge dowry meets strong Laird Highlander. His brut personality scares her but she refuses to submit to his demands. She has a mind of her own and stands up to what she believes in even though it's a male dominated environment and her word doesn't go too far. With their strong personalities colliding at every turn, it's surprising to see that they come together with a understanding of love and trust. Great story! Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

    "daft"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    ok story, but the author couldn't seem to find any word for crazy besides daft, which made me daft.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Maya Banks? Why or why not?

    not as an audio

    "A bit slow...."
    Any additional comments?

    There was a good bit of action/adventure at the beginning of the book and then at the end, but the vast expanses through out the middle of the book had me board. There were also flaws in the way the lead characters interacted that just didn't come off as realistic.

    Not a book I'd recommend.

    "A Fun Romp"

    A light, fun romp that reminded me a little bit of the movie Brave (a very adult version of Brave -- there was a lot of sexy-time in this book). I enjoyed it, and I'm somewhat tempted to read on as I liked the character of Rionna and the next book focuses on her, but I'm not sure that I will.

    "Good story, will go on with the series"

    The first of a trilogy, hooks you for the rest of the brothers stories. This book not only had the usual love story, but sets up the characters for the remaining books. You get interested in the McCabe brothers and admire their loyalty to each other and family. They do what is good for the clan, even at a personal sacrifice. It has a nice bit of action, politics, scheming, and deception going on, providing a nice background for things to come. The main plot of the story is the romance though, but the title tells us that.
