Jake Ramsay, eldest son of the chief of Clan Grant, has always felt the weight of his sire's shadow. Tales of Alexander Grant's prowess are whispered throughout the Highlands, and Alex's loving marriage to Jake's mother, Maddie, is equally legendary. Jake's not sure he can live up to his birthright, but when he rescues a beautiful, strong-willed lass from a horrible fate, such concerns start to seem inconsequential. He becomes consumed with the need to protect the lass, Aline, and punish the man who hurt her.
The past two years of Aline's life have been pure misery. A wicked man stole her from her home and then controlled and used her. But when Jake, the handsome Highlander who rescued her, brings her to the Grant keep, she feels like she's entered a fairy tale. The Grants welcome her into their hearts and home, but while she wishes more than anything to stay, her abuser is not the only one she left behind. She must return to the wretch's keep.
In his quest to save Aline, Jake discovers her abuser is in league with another man, one with violent ambitions in the Highlands. In order to save his clan and his love, he will have to stop worrying about his sire's legacy and start creating one of his own.

Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.
Exciting, poignant, and fast paced! As Laird Alexander's eldest of his twin sons, Jake knew he had many responsibilities to his clan whenever the th time came for him to take over. Knowing his father's skill and reputation were well known throughout Scotland, he really wasn't sure he ever wanted to become the clan Chief. When this heart was captured by a beautiful lass he couldn't get out of his head, he realized there was still much to be learned from his his beloved father. This is another of Keira Montclair's romantic, page turning, Scottish love stories. I would easily recommend both of these series, and with the introduction of several new characters, will hopefully lead to yet another continuation of the sagas. Paul Woodson was great narrator, bringing life to the characters. If you haven't read or listened to this book, or the others in the series, I'd say you are really missing out. The sexual scenes as well as the violence, were not overly explicit or graphic, so younger readers could read these. You probably need to read/listen to them first to better determine appropriateness for your teens.
this was a good story, you never get boring bits. good narrator so easy to listen to
