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.

    "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.

    "A Great Start to a New Series"

    I really liked this first book in the McCabe Trilogy and cannot wait to listen to the stories of the remaining brothers, Alaric and Caelen. The American narrator has a very nice voice and I enjoyed her, however my only complaint was that she simply cannot do a Scottish accent. I am very familiar with Scots and her accent varied between Russian and Irish. Once I got used to the fact that I wasn't going to hear a true Scots accent, it was fine.

    I enjoyed the relationship between Ewan and Mairin. As laird of a crumbling keep and a destitute clan, Ewan is not used to be disobeyed which Mairin does every chance she gets. I did love how the women of the clan accepted Mairin as one of their own and as their laird's lady.

    I highly recommend this medieval Scottish romance.

    "Rather dull."
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Kirsten Potter?

    Not sure if I would.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Jennifer Ashley.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirsten Potter?

    unsure


    What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

    The characters were good. I thought the writing was rather juvenile. Amateurish.


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure if I disliked this book because I had just finished listening to a similar series by Jennifer Ashley which I LOVED! Highland Pleasures - highly recommend that series.

    Story
    "Too many head-slapping moments..."

    This book starts out promising. It begins as a DRAMA with gritty and exciting action. The heroine (Mairin) is abducted by a brutal clan leader, bent on forcing her to marry him for her dowery. His physical abuse of her is shocking, but she is realistically brave when a child needs her protection... But shortly after she comes to be in the hands of the hero's clan, the story morphs into a silly ROMANTIC COMEDY, and Mairin becomes a bit of a modern day brat. The transition was a bit jarring.

    Far from being an independent woman, who makes good decisions, Mairin can't stand to be told what to do. She's like an adolescent, stomping her foot and screaming, you're not the boss of me. Given the time period the story is set in makes it all the more ridiculous. Her fits of temper of course stupidly endanger herself and others.

    We're told Mairin was hidden in a convent (not sure why) and raised by nuns. Yet when she marries Ewan - the laird of the his clan - she of NO experience decides to take charge of the keep by judging disputes and firing men. I think we're supposed to find her bumbling "cute," but I just found it wholly unrealistic and eye-rolling.

    I liked Ewan... He was no crush-worthy hero, but good.

    The drama returns towards the end and the story gets briefly interesting again - hence the second star. But the resolution happens too quickly and simply, like the author was ready to be done with it.

    Overall it was disappointing. There was a lot of potential and it started strong, but got sloppy fast. I don't think the author spent more than 10 minutes researching historical detail. The dialog and themes are modern and shallow. There are lessons in woman's lib given to medieval men with bows and arrows.

    As for the "steaminess" factor... Meh. May-be because I didn't see Mairin as much more than a child, I just wasn't bowled over by the "loving."
