Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "After Outlander this is lightweight"

    The story wasn't bad, but the descriptions are redundant and sometimes sketchy like one might find in a YA novel. Somewhat simplistic. Ms. Potter also had very little Scottish accent, which I love about books with Scots.

    "Fun story"

    Fun, engaging story with great narration. Don't expect much in the way of historical accuracy. Loved the heroine. A good bit of suspension of disbelief necessary because of the issues with historical accuracy.

    "Both story and narrator are a great listen"
    Any additional comments?

    There were so many positive reviews that I thought I'd give this a try and I was so not disappointed. I found it hard to put the book away. Great listen. Looking at the next in the series of these books. Well done, thoroughly enjoyed!

    "Sweet story"

    Lovely heroine. Sweet story. Characters were developed well and story flowed nicely. I consider myself picky when it comes to romances, and I would recommend this.

    Story
    "A Very Enjoyable Highlander Series"

    I've read most of Maya Banks' books and I think I enjoy her Highlander novels the most. The characters are well developed, the storylines are excellent and the entire experience of these stories has been enjoyable and entertaining. She seems to have backed off of these books in favor of other pursuits, which is a shame and a huge disappointment. Hopefully, she will return to these soon.

    I also would like to comment on the performance of Kirsten Potter. I've listened to her narration of countless books and even used to complain (in the beginning) that she sounded a bit porn star at times. I've since either changed my opinion or she has simply grown as a narrator to the extent that I really enjoy her performances. Having said all of that, she really does a fantastic job with the Scottish accent for the American listener and carries through the personality of each individual character flawlessly.

    The first three books, the McCabe stories, do not need to be read prior to the Armstrong stories but the stories within each series should be read in order.

    "Brilliant Story, great performance!!!"

    I was sceptic at first because I prefer the midern stories, but this one was amazing. It was so well written and performed. Everything was balanced and tastefully put together. It was romantic, dramatic, hot, interesting and not so obvious. I trully recommend this one :-)
