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)
It was a great end to the series.
Kaelin and Kiely were of course my favorite characters. We already know and love them from the first two books so it was easy to hope for their happily ever after.
I listened to to all three books and this one was every bit as good as the others.
I loved the last battle scene of the book.
It was a great book, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series
I really couldn't choose just one.....
As always Kirsten Potter did a great job with the narration
Yes, it's a hard one to put down
Great book, Great listen. I really like this series. The story has the most important highland hero, but also love, laughter and some suspense. All wrapped up it made for a great series. Sex scenes were a little to explicit for my taste but otherwise good listen.
A strong woman in an Highland setting fighting with a sword, upsetting the men around her. What a gal.
Tell us about yourself! Married, avid reader and book reviewer.
"Never Love a Highlander" by Maya Banks was as always a wonderful read. This novel was a conclusion to a wonderful trilogy that only this author..Maya Banks can deliver. The novel was of a 'Scottish' historical romance of the McCabe trilogy. What would become of Caelen and Rionna as he takes over the McDonald Clan...where there had been a marriage out of the sense of duty...returns to take over the McDonald clan. Ms. Banks offers us a relationship between Caelen and Rionna only causing this to be a very hot, steamy and sexual read...all the characters were so very strong and well developed that would only keep the reader on the edge of their seat. You will find from the read that this hero and heroine both "had been wounded deeply by their pass and nothing could heal it but only each other." Now, for you to found out how this will play out you must pick up "Never Love a Highlander" to find out just what Ms. Banks has in store for the reader. I felt this novel flowed very well...especially with it being the last of this series...being very interesting and even suspenseful. Be ready for a novel presenting..."romance, betrayal, a bit of mystery" and a over all excellent read.
If you are looking for a 'McCabe Series' that only Ms. Banks can give us... you have come to the right place and yes I would recommend "Never Love a Highlander" as a excellent read.
Love a story w/ humor,romance,adventure, w/out a lot of bickering,& good deals.
Maya Banks has grown as a quality author in this series. There is more substance in the plots. In this book the heroine is a strong woman, as in the others, but she also has learned to wield a sword to have an even stronger sense of ability to protect herself. This creates a dilemma for the hero. Does he accept a woman who can fight or try to fashion her into the image of the one who needs his protection?
It is worked out well in the story. There is of course romance, some suspense, a touch of humor, and action. It keeps your interest making you want to continue listening. I recommend this book to all who enjoy Highland romance.
Overall rating 4.5, it shows as 5 because you can't give 1/2 stars.
Narrator does a great job.
The continuing saga of the brothers.. loved all 3, but Caelen is my favorite book. He finally receives his rewards!
The snow fight, loved it!

I have discovered a new author in Maya Banks. This is a romance trilogy about the three McCabe brothers. Highly enjoyable! Going to find more books by Maya Banks.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
This is the most wonderful series and would so recommend it! The narrator is so passionate......
I read so I can write
Two people who really don't want to do what they must do end up being really glad they did. Great end of a great series.
