For his payment, he accepts disputed lands, but soon discovers that what he truly desires is the highland beauty whose brothers will never bow to him.
Meghan Brodie refuses to be a pawn in a political game and vows not be won so easily. She resists the English Lyon...but even as she begins to realize their love is destined to heal an injured land, she cannot dare to hope the Lyon will see beyond physical beauty to love the imperfect lass within.

I love the fact that they had a Scotsman doing the narration for this book as he knew what he was saying and pronounced the word correctly.
I hope he is doing the narration of the other books.
My favorite way to get my reading fix when I am on the move
Absolutely not! The narrator's voice is so distracting that I had to keep going back to keep the story line since I had read the book previously and knew what should have been.
The Lyon was my favorite. Smart, cunning, romantic,
Distracting, Distracting, Distracting.
Neither. I had to keep reminding myself the cost of the audio version was minimal since I already owned the Kindle.
This was a good story. I enjoyed the basic plot, the characters, the comedy, and the romance. Yet everything felt incomplete or thrown together. The main story ended with no real resolution. There should have been another chapter, or at the very least an epilogue.
The secondary love story between Allison and the oldest brother seemed to be just thrown in there wherever it could be, just so the bestie could have a happy ending too. But there was no back story, real explanation, or fluidity.
Finally, please do not utilize Ewan MacRae when there are female voices. He already sounds like Joe Mantegna in all other voices, but his females are horrid. I doubt I will ever listen to another book narrated by him.
This was so disappointing.
Lighthearted. .. simple and gentle.... but what does it matter so long as there's a hunky man and a sexy brogue and a castle!? I do have a singular complaint, a goat is a GOAT and a baby goat is a KID not a lamb. A SHEEP has a lamb. So using either lamb AND goat constantly referring to the same animal is asinine! Huge writing error! Apparently Tanya Anne Crosby has no idea what a goat or a sheep is because they aren't the same thing. How did no one catch this? Fair warning, it's all the same single animal even tho its confusing because it really isn't.
NARRATOR : Sexy male voices.... deliciousness for my ears! The female voices of sexy sounding male narrators are often lacking in any femininity. Here too its true, yet I stopped hearing it as such very quickly! Well done!!!!!
CREDITWORTHY? Yes, providing your looking for Scottish historical HEA romance and not a serious literary revelation. It is what it is and what it's meant to be.
HEAT FACTOR: Soft steam but with a tendency to boil.
Read the 1st book in the series. Started listening to this #2. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE narration. 40 minutes in, couldn't take it any more. I'll stick with the kindle version.
The narrator for one and a bit more adult style writings.
It sounded childish...did a teenager write this one?
No, nope really bad female voices and most of his males voices were whiny.
Wonder why they didn't keep Braden Wright from book 1.
Very disappointed! I really like Tanya Anne Crosby's books but something happen here.
This was a terrible book. I figured I'd get this one since I liked the first one. I was very disappointed in this one. The story felt rushed. There wasn't any development. I felt NOTHING for the characters. The narration was awful as well. The accents were all over the place. I'll be returning this and taking the rest of the series out of my Wishlist.
I'm usually a fan of Tanya Anne Crosby but this is probably one of the worst Medieval Romances I've read [listened to]. The characters had potential but the plot was flatter than a pancake. It was so dull not even a knife sharpener could help.
The AWFUL narrator Ewan MacRae didn't make things better. The heroes voice sounded like a whiner and a dolt all at the same time. Unfortunately this narrator narrates the rest of the series too.
I only finished this because I have a thing about reading all books in a series. If the next book is as bad, I will break my own rule and completely stop. What a waste of credit.
