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.

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
    "Absolutely Sublime"

    Now this is what a romance novel is supposed to be.

    The story was simply enchanting.

    The narration was superb. The Scottish accent wasn't over used and did not detract from the story.

    Absolutely credit worthy.

    "ABSOLUTLY THE BEST LOVE STORY!!!!!!"
    Where does Never Seduce a Scot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top romance stories I have listen to or read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Seduce a Scot?

    The point where Eveline speaks for the first time since her accident....or rathers screams.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices....it is perfect. She handled the actors mood and tones great!!!


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

    I love the point where she (Eveline) rescues Graeman, and the point where he discovers her missing and knows how much he loves her.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a great story where the heroine has a disability and the hero admires her for overcoming and living in spite of it.

    Story
    "Romance in the Highlands...with a new twist!"
    Would you listen to Never Seduce a Scot again? Why?

    Yes. This book has a TWIST. All of the books in the Montgomery and Armstrong series seem to have the same element of a character with a "difference" (don't want to give it away because I was pleasantly shocked!). Eveline is a terrifically thought out and written character. Her interactions with all the other characters make this a fun and impossible to pause listen.


    What other book might you compare Never Seduce a Scot to and why?

    Banks's In Bed With A Highlander....... Strong Laird not expecting to fall in love with the bride he is "forced" to marry. That's an overwhelming theme in most Highland Romance books, but Banks does such a good job with adding and twisting the "same ol' same ol'" until it is new.
    It also has it's steamy scenes...but not quite as hot and steamy as In Bed with a Highlander.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Still the very best there is! She makes me lose myself in every book she narrates. She is the PERFECT ACCENT narrator. They ALL sound real and so believable. Men and women and children alike... She is THE BEST!


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

    There were a few moments that I smiled and laughed and cried....but my favorite is when Rory and Eveline are moving Evelines things down the hall.....wonderful scene.


    Any additional comments?

    One thing I will say...and the only real negative comment is that this book is NOT named very well. I think the name could have been more thought out and have more meaning to the direction of the story....but that's a petty complaint I know! While the Montgomery and Armstrong Series is WONDERFUL....it is not quite as good as Banks's McCabe Series. The McCabe Series is my all time favorite....Montgomery and Armstrong series is a close second! Banks is BRILLIANT! I wish she wrote only highland romances because she does them so perfectly.

    "A Wonderful Read"
    If you could sum up Never Seduce a Scot in three words, what would they be?

    Enchanting, Loving, Champions


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Evaline, a true champion of any clan and a true champion of their hearts.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    She has found voices for everyone. They are all different, and easy listening.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book 2

    "Too cheesy"

    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.
