Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Always love a highlander."

    Book three is more of the same, equally as good as the other two books. And if you haven't read them, don't start with this one. I will be reading more of Maya Banks Highlander writings in the future. Characters are well developed, but I thought it odd that they never refer to wearing plaids, during the whole series. Could have used more highland in the description as well. Narrator does a good job.

    "Best trilogy ever!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Love a Highlander to be better than the print version?

    I wouldn't know. But I loved this audiobook. 'Twas the best ending to a trilogy I've ever listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rionna of course!!! She was a fierce highland warrior princess.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an awesome narrator. She infuses life into every character. Her accents and tones were perfect. Her performance as well as the awesomeness of the book drove me to tears.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes yes yes!!!!! I gave up my sleep just to finish this book. And I definetly did not regret it.


    Any additional comments?

    Please read "In bed with a highlander" and "Seduction of a highland lass" before you read this one. You will definetly be moved to tears. Now I'm sad coz I don't think I'll find another trilogy this good.

    "More Than I Expected"
    Where does Never Love a Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Light entertainment which was easy to listen to. Fun without being raunchy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rionna was my favorite character because she was feisty but vulnerable. She care about her family and made sacrifices for their benefit.

    "I laughed, I cried and I wanted more!"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. The entire McCabe series was outstanding. They were great characters with good stories. I laughed, I cried and I wanted more when it was done. Not many books seem to make me feel that way these days.

    What could have been better was the narrator. She wasn't awful, but she just couldn't quite take me there. I found that she wasn't always consistent with the character voices. It was confusing at times.

    That being said, I would still recommend the audiobooks to highland romance lovers.
