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.

Enchanting, Loving, Champions
Evaline, a true champion of any clan and a true champion of their hearts.
She has found voices for everyone. They are all different, and easy listening.
Yes, I couldn't stop. I was very hesitant to purchase this, but was I wrong it was very enjoyable and have already recommended to a friend.
Looking forward to book 2
This is my first book by Maya Banks. I can see why so many women like this book. However, it is way to cheesy for me. I usually don't mind cheesy romance novels as long as they are paranormal and sci-fi.
Kirsten Potter is absolutely fantastic, as usual.
Veers from the standard romance template and brings a story with heart. I was emotionally invested in this story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great narration by Kirsten Potter. Maya Banks definitely has found her genre with her Highlander novels. Buy this one and listen to it again and again.
One of the most intriguing heroines of a romance novel I've come across in a long time. Well-drawn characters and compelling story of deception, misunderstanding, and deep emotions. Scottish clans were notorious for their rivalries and enduring feuds, which makes the depth of animosity believable. And fantastic narration. If this series can maintain this standard, it will be one for the record books.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
Traditionally historical romance.
In Bed with a HIghlander, Seduction of a Highland Lass, and Never Love a Highlander. If you like these books by Maya Banks, you will like this one. Strong warriors who love and protect their women.
When she spoke.
Say something about yourself!
This is book one of the Montgomery Armstrong books...I already listened to book two which was not as good to me...this book was really good. It had adventure, mistrust, chemistry, the buildup of love...it wasn't instant, and the "drama" of the book was very real and plausible.
Overall I would have given it a 5 but there was just not enough intensity...it was a light listen, and I would highly recomend it. Trust me when I say I am not a fan of historical romance...but this one was really great.
I only have the Audio and it was better than a read. I listened to the whole Series and can't wait for the next one! Hurry up Audible
Evellen, it was amazing how she managed the transition between all the different characters. This series is captivating and very well done by Kirsten Potter. I will look for more books this nararator.
The Story and the series was so well done, it took you from scene to scene making you want more there is not any one moment that was better than another.
Highly pleased with this Audio Experience!!
At home mother of three girls. I love reading and romance is my favorite category. A little paranormal also thrown in is nice ok too.
I loved everything about this book. The characters are realistic and well rounded. Eveline and Graeme are so great together. Their chemistry is very endearing. I love the author and have read her other highlander books.
Eveline is so wonderful. Even with her handicap she tries to be kind and generous to all. Even when others don't understand and are nervous about her. I also love Graeme. He really is amazing. Loving, protective, and accepting of Eveline.
I love everything about this Sweet Story, I will definitely listen to more books from this Author. Miss. Kirsten Potter is a WONDERFUL Narrator.
