Publisher's Summary

Forbidden love, undeniable desire....

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she’s been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown’s most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal—and a bold rescue—land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he’s not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire and desperate for more. With Davina’s secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can’t live without.

Great Scot! Listen to more Children of the Mist romances.

    "Love those highlanders!"

    Nice story with just enough twists to keep in interesting without being overly complicated. The narrator was fantastic with her Scottish accents! Can't wait to read next in the series.

    "YIKES. Terrible narrator."

    I am shamelessly addicted to Scottish Highlander books. That being said this was the absolute worst narration I have ever heard in my life. In no way was this anything resembling a Scots accent. Yowza. Unfortunately, the main characters voice was so whiney and annoying I often had to stop listening for a while and start it back up when I was desperate and had nothing else.

    The story was alright but if there had been better narration I think I would have been able to get more into it.

    Story
    "I love me some Highlander..."

    I have a special place in my heart for Highlanders. I love that they're gorgeous, strong, brave and loyal. I am beyond happy to find a new highlander series to take me away from reality. This book was very good. I specially liked the fact that it gives you many historical references that make the story more authentic. The romance was beautiful and believable.

    Narration: I didn't particularly love the narration by Carrington MacDuffie but I ended up getting used to it. Her female voices are very good but the male characters sound a bit strange. Her Scottish accent isn't great either. But my complaints are minor. The story is good enough that I was ok with the narration and will most definitely listen to the next book in the series.

    "So, so"

    Everything about this book is okay.... just okay. I don't really expect this kind of stuff to be great literature, and I didn't pay for that either. It's entertainment. Just know that going in.

    "One of the Best"

    This book is one on the best books I ever listened to. I cannot believe that the other reviews were not higher; just to think I could have missed out on this outstanding book if I had not taken a chance. I wrote this same review for the second book, when I meant it for this book.

    "Sweet Romance"

    It's nice once in awhile to have the hero and heroine admit they love each other early on in the book...there is no , he loves her but won't admit it...she loves him but can't admit it. A nice change of pace for me in a romance. There is still the very present question, "will their love be enough to hold then together?" That will keep you listening. Not too fond of the narrator, she's not the worst I've heard, but sort of monotone and a bit boring at times (that did not deter me from buying the 2nd book in the series). If your fond of those hunky sexy highlander alphamales as your hero, you'll probably endjoy this book.

    I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.

    "Great Story, Wonderful Narrator"

    This is a great story. The narrator is wonderful. It is easy to forget that only one person is narrating.

    "Not great narration but good story"
    Would you listen to Ravished by a Highlander again? Why?

    I will listen to Ravished by a HIghlander again because it is a good story and I like the characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Paula Quinn before, how does this one compare?

    I have read Paula Quinn's book Laird of the Mist which is the story of the hero of this book's parents, but this is the first book of hers that I have listened to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I thought the narrator's Scots accents were stereotypical, and she has a vocal pattern in her narration that borders on irritating at times.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Overall, I liked the book and the narrator enough to order the second book of this series.

    Story
    "Sweet, but not great."

    This is an okay story, I give it a 3.5 overall. The narrator was good, some of the accents weren't great but she did a pretty good job. There didn't seem to have much depth to the romance. The main characters seemed to be instantly in love but not a lot of lead up, I was starting to wonder when the ravishing would begin, finally something started to happen. I am not a fan of the heroine, she is perfect, can do no wrong and can make any man fall instantly in love with her. Pleassse. She must be a saint or a "beguiling angel spun from the harp strings of heaven". The story did pick up and I enjoyed the ending better than the beginning. I don't know if I will continue on with the remaining series. Probably if they come on sale, but I won't be rushing to get the next one.
