Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides, and she's in dire need of his protection.
Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as the Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit that have earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him--Angelique. Can he break through her icy facade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past cost them not only their future together but their very lives?

I was terribly disappointed in this purchase. The voices are not great to downright bad. The progress is lame, and repetitive. I love this genre, so it has to be bad to turn me off. Thank goodness I can return it.
I'm hoping it is just this one book combined with the voices used. I checked out the other books narrated by this man, they were fine. This author has other books, and is well liked. Won't stop me from buying other books by either of them. Just not this one. If you're uncertain, the five minutes is exactly what you get, it doesn't get better.
I read this book quite some time ago so was ready to listen to the audio version...wow! The story really sizzles when someone else is reading it to you! The narrator was excellent & made you feel like you were in the Highlands. The story is full of adventure, betrayal, family, fun & of course, lots of seduction. A must read...this author is one of my favorites & I have read all of her books...I look forward to having more of them on audio!
Yes, because first of all, I loved the story, so listening to it as an audio book, was a real pleasure!
Teasing between the two main characters and their journey!
Andrew Bryan narrated also Vonda Sinclair 's first book My Fierce Highlander. I like his voice!
Amazing! Captivating! Thrilling!
If you love Vonda Sinclair's books, then go and grab her audio books, you won't be disappointed!
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
Okay but not outstanding. I like the H/H. They were both very good characters - especially Lachlan. The rest of the story is rather contrived and pieces left hanging. The reader is pleasant, but he mispronounces words (such as "livery" and many others) and I don't know what is going on with this echo thing throughout. It is supposed to be the characters thoughts, but for me it is aggravating and distracting.
Yes I would listen to My Wild Highlander again. The overal performance was very well done, and the story is very entertaining.
The most memorable for me had to be when Lachlan had to go to the Dr. to check his health but was caught outside by his two friends and had to explain why he was seeing him. That was a classic.
I haven't listen' to any of Andrew Bryan's performances before, but I certainly will remember his name and I hope to hear him again, he was really good.
The story made me laugh and smile, the hero was such a rogue and the heroine just didn't stand a chance.
I also liked how thoughts were made known, that was very different.
Interesting, passionate and Dangerous.
Lady Angelique because she has a fighting spirit and stands up for whats right.
I have a few Favorite's but The dark drawling room where she was hiding from Lord Chants-worth was funny. The Audio Narrator makes it like we are apart of the story as a side character that no one can see but we are there watching the story take place.
Adventure, Betrayal, Lust!
I wish they had a female to read the female parts. I think it would have run smoother for me. But I still enjoyed it!!!!! I would tell everyone its a must add to your Audio list.
I loved that Angelique struggled so desparately within herself -- her innate passionate nature versus her past experience with uncaring men.
He does great work in dialog and accented languages.
I absolutely adored Lady Angelique with her reactions about events around her, her fighting spirit to stand up to what she believes, and her absolute belief her husband-to-be was nothing more than a skirt lifter, lecher and debaucher, dallying with women at court. She could not abide sharing a bed with him, a barbaric Scot of the Highlands.Narrator Andrew Bryan's excels in dialog. I love the smooth baritone voice of Lachlan. He did a superb job with Angelique's voice, depicting her very French side. Her English had a strong French accent, in addition to speaking French in dialog.Angelique insulted her husband at every turn, in French, not knowing he spoke French and several other languages. She embarrassed herself many times with her rash and quick temper. (she endears herself) Nevertheless she was a very likeable character. I could understand why she reacted the way she did, however Lachlan didn't know her backstory, which created even more tension between the two.She lived in a world where women were used by men; whether to obtain their property or bodies and ultimately their heirs. Lady Angelique detested Highlanders. All men were faithless pigs.After a very funny scene, where Lady Angelique escapes from a drooling fool (her words), by entering a darkened room only to find she happened upon two people pleasuring themselves, and then being found by the king’s guards in the same room as Lachlan and his paramour, however, Lady Eleanor had sneaked away, not being caught. From one shock to another she finds Lachan is to be her husband, take her father’s title of Earl of Draughon and claim the chief of clan Drummagan. And with shock she leaves the King’s chamber. How can she escape this fate?Highlander Lachlan is no less shocked. Frankly, he likes women and beds many. He never expected to rise to this level. His older brother was an Earl, but never him. Angelique was one prickly lass as far as he was concerned. But he couldn’t say nay to the king. He would have to make this work. Could he lead a clan, could he be faithful to his wife? Did he even want to be faithful to that hellion cat?Conflicts abound between these two in this well-written suspenseful story. Lachlan really tries to be her protector, his job as a husband. He felt he failed over and over. Plenty of danger awaits this passionate and volatile couple as they struggle to understand and trust each other. Will they be too late?
Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.
A very well done audio version of one of Vonda Sinclaire's wonderful Highlander books. All of the various languages and accents were so well done! The development of the characters and the depth of their personalities were sculpted by the writer, but brought to life by Mr. Bryan's audio performance.
One of the more comical situations in the book wais the task Lachlan had to perform before he could convince his wife into their marriage bed. Having Rebbie there to continually needle Lachlan about any difficult or embarrassing situation, made for much humor scattered through out the story.
To try and pin down just one scene as my favorite would be next to impossible. Through the descriptive details used by Ms. Sinclaire, and the audio narration talent of Mr. Bryan, the reader is able to personally feel they are additional characters or observers of the progression of the story.
Mr. Bryan did an excellent job switching from French accents to the very male, sexy, Scottish highlander voices. Audio books are great for readers like myself who love to listen to the language of the time or country while still being hands free to be able to complete other necessary daily tasks we are suppose o complete.
I really feel that Vonda Sinclair has completely outdone herself with this series! Each and every book takes you back to a time in Scotland when men were men... Very hot men, in kilts, complete with washboard abs and muscles that would make almost any woman swoon. Luckily, the female characters tend to be strong willed enough to hold their own with these men and soften the rough edges.
Wonderful, adventure, love
When she tied him up to the bed and she thought he couldn't get loose. He could have gotten loose easy, but he didn't want her to know that. LOL
This was a wonderful story and well narrated and super well written to keep my interest.
Exiting, exasperating, excellent
Lachlan of course, I fell in love with him from the very start, and I mean in My Fierce Highlander
I absolutely love the highland accents and thought Andrew did this quite well, of course it helps having a brilliant storyline, which Vonda has done with all her highlander books, I can't wait until more of the series hits audible and by that I mean 4,5 &6 as I have the other three
