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)
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.

Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
If you enjoy Scottish love stories...you should enjoy this trilogy. 3 brothers and there story and struggles with love.
I am new to this genre, I enjoyed it very much.
Well the hero and heroine of course. Kirsten Potter is awesome, as above she really can read a "lovin" scene well!
No particularly moment moved me like the 2nd installment..Lass.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Yes, it's a good listen-great story.
Caelen...he is a manly warrior! What's not to love?
When Caelen & Rionna finally agree on the news they receive regarding an heir near the end of the book.
Sure-when I read/listen I usually want to!
"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!
Near the top.... definitely on my list to listen to again one day.
Wow.... too many...
Perfection as always. I can see the characters in her voice and that says a lot.
Yes... I almost did actually! If it weren't for needing sleep I think I would have too...
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!
Professional female with little time for the fun things (cooking, reading and traveling)!
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.
No I skipped several scenes. It just becomes porn after a while.
The plot and the attraction of the hero and heroine
I like the scene where he accepted her strength and ability to be a warrior.
Ask Audiable to rate sexual content.
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.
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
