Publisher's Summary

Scotland, 1344.

She believes men are not honorable nor are they kind-until she meets one that changes her heart forever.

Betrayed by lies told before her birth, Aishlinn is raised by a harsh and cruel stepfather. Her life is forever changed one horrifying night when she is forced to flee England for the safety of the Scottish Highlands. Rescued by a fierce band of highland warriors, Aishlinn soon learns that honorable men do exist. She finds a strength she never knew she possessed and it will be tested to the limits when she is forced to make a heart-wrenching decision…allow the English to kill those she loves, or surrender for the crime she committed.

She is everything he never knew he wanted in a woman…

As a fierce highland warrior, Duncan McEwan has survived numerous battles, bed countless women, and survived a horrific storm at sea. He has scaled mountains and even survived hand-to-claw battle with a cat-o'mountain. But none of that could have prepared him for how his life forever changed one fateful spring day when he rescued a lass from a freezing stream. He will do anything to keep her as his own and will risk everything to keep her out of the hands of the English.

    Story
    "12.5 hours for $2.00!!! SOLD!"

    Yes, it's only $2, no idea why. It wasn't a great literary classic but it kept me wanting to listen. Our leading lady has had a tough life, and I mean tough! Forced to defend herself one day against an evil man she fled on horse to Scotland hoping to find refuge before the English soldiers found her....the evil man she fended off was a Barron, and she was a simple kitchen worker, with no right to refuse the advances of a man of his station.

    While running for her life she comes across brawny highlander men who take one look at her beaten form and pledge to protect her, after all if they didn't their moms would skin them alive!

    The story of her past unfolds and things are kind of predictable and it is a bit repetitive that the girl thinks she is ugly, and plain because she has been psychologically tortured her whole life but I say again, 12.5 hours for $2... How can you go wrong????

    "Fabulous"

    A beautifully written story brought to life by narration. I must admit I didn't like the female voice but that's because I love male voices with the Scottish burr, and after all it was Aisilin's story so the female voice over was good.
    Definitely recommended.

    Story
    "A Sweet Highlander Romance NO soft/hard porn here!"
    What did you love best about Laiden's Daughter?

    Loved the complete story! Good character and story development. Nice romance story. This could be read aloud with children in the room. Just the right sizzle between Aishlinn & Duncan. Erin Jones did an excellent job of narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Laiden's Daughter?

    Aishlinn had been repeatedly berated by her step father and told she could do nothing right and was too plain to attract a husband. Yet, despite this abuse (verbally & physically), she developed a sweet, humble & eager to help character which demonstrated inner beauty and later, outer beauty. The day came when she looked into the mirror and saw her reflection after Bree & Ellen had fixed her hair for dinner. She came to the conclusion that she might not be too plain, after all, to find a husband. (In fact, she was beautiful which she still could not accept nor believe.)


    Which character – as performed by Erin Jones – was your favorite?

    Erin Jones did such a good job with the various voices. Which character? Not just one. Aishlinn & Duncan & Isobel & Angus.


    Any additional comments?

    What a delightful book! My second memorable moment in this book was the fight between Duncan and Black Richard! Very humorous! This is, indeed, what I consider to be a Romance Story set in the Scottish Highlands. Sadly, many "Romance" books are just soft porn and even porn. And, you don't know it until you get into the book. Sorry way to sell books in my opinion! I am looking forward to reading more of Suzan Tisdale's books. Oh, yes. They are long but I like that.

    Audiobooks Change Tasks To Unlimited Adventures! Love Historical/Insp. Romances & Random Sale Genres. Reviews Shouldn’t Contain Spoilers ;-)

    Story
    ".Highland Self Discovery"

    This highland adventure is set in 1329 Scotland. This is not a Historically detailed story but rather a light romance with some Historical elements.

    This is the story of Aishlinn, who was treated cruelly (emotionally & physically) by her step-father, brothers, and an Earl. This story really focuses on Aishlinn’s self-esteem issues and shows her journey of self discovery filled with adventure and romance. The “hero” (Duncan) originally finds Aishlinn to be a frightened and abused young woman. He helps her to overcome her insecurities and demonstrates how patience, tenderness, and love can transcend abuse.

    My only negative about this story is that by the end of the book there are still a few unanswered questions. Primarily details about some people and events in her past. Maybe they will be answered in the other books in the series? Hope so.

    This is definitely a Cinderella style romance. This is a love story that is more romantic than sexual and, of course, they lived happily ever after!

    "Pleasant surprise"

    I was surprised to enjoy this book so much. The blurb doesn't do it justice. There are some twist and turns in this story that make it truly interesting. I couldn't stop listening. Also the romance was so so sweet!! It was slowly built and kind of innocent. I loved it. Highly recommended.

    "WOw!! What a Great Beginning!!"

    This Book has it all. Cruelty, survival, rescue. Lost and Found. And last but not least Love.
    This is a well developed story, it introduces us to the clan and tells the story of a young maidens life. Not a explicit sex story, just hints. Recommend the read/listen. Well worth the credit, now off to read book 2

    The story was a bit predictable .
    The heroine was a bit pathetic although the opposite was meant to be portrayed .
    The narrator was ok but a bit slow and over dramatic at times .
