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.

Fantastic story and I'm so glad to have found Maya Banks! Kirsten Potter does a bang up job narrating this series!
YES... I love a book that wraps my emotions up into knots..... I love that this book made me laugh and cry....
None, it has been a long time since I found a good Highlander series
When she tells her husband how she vomited on the villain...lol
My name is Andie, I am a stay at home mom of 4 kids : ) ages 9,7,4 and 3. I love old timey romance novels!
I absolutely loved this book! It is one of my favorites in my library. I was so thrilled with this book that I emailed Audible's content request and asked for the other 2 books in the series. I love Audible's customer service, they looked into getting the other two book and told me as soon as production was over they would work out a licensing agreement! GUESS WHAT the 2nd book is available and I have it already! I can't wait to start listening!
I def recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romances! The narration was great, the story was great. This is a FABULOUS listen!
The book or rather the whole trilogy is awesome. I never thought Ms. Banks would have this on audio, but here it is and she matched it with the BEST NARRATOR... It can't get any better. If you love historical romance with just enough scenes that will make your toes curl, then you should listen to Ms. Potter narrate Ewan and Mairin love story. It's worth the credit. It wont disappoint! Btw: This is my second favorite out of the trilogy. I'm waiting for Alaric and Keely's book on audio (its my no. 1)Happy listening ;-)
Good narration, semi-steamy love scenes, sub-par story line. I've enjoyed Maya Banks' books but this one took almost the entire story before I began to have a small surge of interest. I bought the whole series on a sale several months ago, so hopefully the other books get better. I love a male lead that has a little dominant streak, but I think I just wasn't in the mood for some of the blatant sexism...although accurate for a historical piece I suppose...it grated on my nerves a bit. For now, I'll probably stick with my paranormal romance obsession and contemporary romances!
I read and enjoy many books by and about women, including quite a few labeled romance. In fact, one search engine has decided that I am a woman. I'm not ... and never have been. All my protesting is preface to this: Our heroine is a ninny, making the same mistakes over and over. Nor is the story even passingly close to reality. At any price above a buck save your money.
Yes, I read the 2 sequels but definitely enjoyed listening more.
The meeting of Mairin and Ewan.
Excellent reader. She makes the characters very alive in your mind.
Yes, very easy to sit back and enjoy.
If you like a good romance with a little spice and good storyline you will enjoy this and the two following it. Helps to read them in order.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
What an incredible series and narrator! Definitely worth the read; I couldn't stop until I had finished all three books.
Yes - Reminded me a lot of older Julie Garwood historicals. No surprises in plot but I found it enjoyable. Enjoyed narration.
