Caelen McCabe's young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother's jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing.
As the sacrificial lamb in her father's power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation. Despite everything, though, the heat in Caelen's touch melts her defenses, and she craves the sensual delights of a husband who guards his emotions as fiercely as his clan. But when the ultimate battle for the McCabe legacy is upon them, Rionna's true warrior spirit emerges. She will risk the wrath of her father, the fury of her enemies, and her life to prove to Caelen that his wife's love is too precious to lose.

"Banks nicely balances bedroom and battlefield action as Rionnas tough swordsmanship and Caelens tender lust propel the couple and the clans toward harmony." (Publishers Weekly)
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I’m always worried about historical novels…will they get the language right, will they hold true to the themes of the period….but since it was Maya Banks I had to take a shot, and was NOT disappointed! Wonderful story, and series, that made me laugh and made me cry. Couldn’t have asked for more!
Tell us about yourself!
I have never read this in print but I thought the audio version was excellent.
I've listened to this whole series narrated by her and I think she does a great job. Her accents are very well done.
This was not my favorite book in the series but I enjoyed very much anyway. Caelen was frustrating at first and I thought he was going to be a hopeless hero but managed to redeem himself in the end. Rionna was great but I got upset when Caelen was initially trying to change and control her thankfully she didn't listen to him :)
Didn't read the print version. However, I get drawn into the story much more and it is more real to me when I listen rather than read (as long as the narrator is good). This narrator was very good, both male and female voices.
I love this series. I never thought I would enjoy the "ancient" setting but it really works and seems like Maya Banks has done her research.
Ms. Banks always seems to get the "facts" straight; she seems to do a lot of research about times, places, historical events, etc. and I admire her for that.
Nothing. I usually prefer good male narrators, however, Kirsten Potter does a good job.
Want more Maya Banks, having a hard time waiting for more books to come out. Please, Ms. Banks, continue to get excellent narrators; as you know a bad narrator can ruin a story.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
All good things must end unfortunately... I finally finished this series and I loved it so
Much! The combination of a Maya Banks story and a narration by Kirsten Potter is a must listen experience. Riona's story was amazing. She turned out to be a warrior princess that bravely battled her dad and Cameron Duncan to save her husband and her clan. This ending was powerful, with teary eyes emotional moments and the sizzling hot loving scenes that Ms Banks is known for. Four stars historical romance.
Wow, what a good way to end the trilogy. The baddest of the brothers McCade and finally a tough female who comes through just as strong but can still have the feminine softness when needed. All I can say is you go girl!!! Talk about protecting her man. I enjoyed this who series from the first book to this last one.
Never Love a Highlander ranks near the top, and I listen to audio books every day. The reader catches the accents and moods of the characters. It was a pleasure to listen to.
Caelen and Rionna are two headstrong characters set in a wonderful love story.
This is the first Maya Banks books I've had the pleasure of listening to or reading. I've already ordered more.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
I could not stop. This is when i fell in true love with a Highlander.
Riona's fierceness, love for her clan, and loyalty, and Caelan's fierceness, love for his clan, and his loyalty. For some reason their story was my favorite out of all 3, or maybe it was just a great ending to an wonderful series. I think I loved this story the most because these two had the most internal conflicts out of the 6 main characters, and I think I identified with that most.
The end! No spoilers from me
YES! We want more, we want more!
Retired. My hobbies are knitting, sewing and sports. To busy doing hobbies to be able to read so audible books are great for me. Also enjoy listening when driving on a long road trip.
The final chapter was the best of all the chapters.
Very monotone. Detracted from the story.
More story than just bedroom scenes.
No, because I would've recommended the McCabe trilogy first, and wouldn't want them tainted by being associated with this.
Not at all, but the author can be so much better!
She was okay. Nothing is standing out to me.
No, not really.
She is a good writer, but I found this story to be lacking. She has a McCabe trilogy that is so much better. Don't go to this for a highlander book. Where she takes leeway with historical context is just too much. Not even for a fluff piece does it work.
