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)

    "I enjoyed listening to all 3 books"

    I enjoyed listening to all three books in this series This book is my favorite out if all three books in the series.I love how Caelen fall in love with Rionna. All three brothers end up with loving wives. I wish there was a fourth book.

    The narration is great Kristin Potter did an awesome job.

    "'tis the truth...if I hear that phrase again..grrr"
    Would you listen to Never Love a Highlander again? Why?

    Yes, it's a good listen-great story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Caelen...he is a manly warrior! What's not to love?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    SPOILER ALERT:


    When Caelen & Rionna finally agree on the news they receive regarding an heir near the end of the book.


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

    Sure-when I read/listen I usually want to!


    Any additional comments?

    "Tis the truth" seemed to be used in almost every other exchange...aaargg! The underlying feminism was annoying too.

    Great series; read them in order...my favorites go in order Book 2, Book 1 and finally this one!

    "wonderful end to.the trilogy. I want more!"
    Where does Never Love a Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top.... definitely on my list to listen to again one day.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Love a Highlander?

    Wow.... too many...


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Perfection as always. I can see the characters in her voice and that says a lot.


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

    Yes... I almost did actually! If it weren't for needing sleep I think I would have too...


    Any additional comments?

    The transition between each book of this trilogy is totally seamless... I am very impressed. There wasn't a ridiculous amount of back story yet you never had to wonder what was happening. I recommend all three of the McCabes trilogy... in order. Well worth the credits or dollars!

    Story
    "Intelligent and Lusty"

    If you don't like somewhat graphic sex in your romance novels you won't like Maya Banks. This story is well-told. Kirsten Potter brought it alive and made the heroine believable and likable. Well, I am a sucker for the accent! This story interestingly seemed to be more realistic in terms of the lengths to which men will go to attain power; maybe not just men. But this story is about clan politics and character, or the lack thereof. I recommend it with the aforementioned caveat.

    Story
    "Great writing, but tooo much sexual detail"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No I skipped several scenes. It just becomes porn after a while.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and the attraction of the hero and heroine


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the scene where he accepted her strength and ability to be a warrior.


    Did Never Love a Highlander inspire you to do anything?

    Ask Audiable to rate sexual content.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish this author and publisher would write for those of us who don't need porn. I bet it's the publisher that has insisted on the details because they know porn is addictive. I do think the writer is extremely talented and doesn't need addiction to sell her books.

    "Loved it"
    What did you love best about Never Love a Highlander?

    It was a great end to the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to to all three books and this one was every bit as good as the others.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the last battle scene of the book.

    "Excellent ending to the series."

    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.
