Audie Award Nominee, Romance, 2013
Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful that his new bride can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled that he stirs her deepest passions. Graeme is intrigued by the mysterious Eveline, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation and whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

Yes, this was a well written and enjoyable story that really made you feel for the characters.
It is a story about an arranged marriage between two clans who hate each other and all the walls that must be broke down before she is accepted.
She brings emotion to the story with her voice and makes the story come alive.
No.....It was good to read in about three days.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I received this book for free from Audiobook Boom in exchange for a unbiased review.
This book made my day! There is no words to tell you how much I enjoyed it! Well written and the Narriator brought it to life. I did not stop until the end.
Tell us about yourself!
Great for a surface deep love story. Very disappointed to read a story about Scots that didn't even talk about how hot they look in their kilt! The narrator did a good job, pleasant sounding and did a decent job with the accents. As long as you're not looking for an intellectually stimulating book, I would recommend it!
I enjoyed the storyline about a deaf girl and the love that bloomed between the two main characters who were forced into marriage.
The storyline about dealing with deafness is in my opinion an interesting social study. It made the story much richer than just a titilating romance. The characters were clearly profiled as to how each one deal with defects in someone else against a backdrop of political intrigue, cultural norms and personal issues. Positively surprised!
This is definitely in the top 10, great story, fun and intriguing characters.
This is comparable to Julie Garwood or Jude Deveraux novels. I hated stopping, since I listen at work and I do have to stop to go home.
Kirsten Potter is a new favorite narrator for me. She has my vote for sure.
There were scenes that I felt their joy and their sadness.
The first chapter started out slow. But this was a wonderful heartwarming story. It is a wonderful book . I enjoyed it. The author did a great job the reader was phenomenal.
