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.

“[M]ore than just sizzling sensuality: history buffs will love the attention to period detail and cameos by real-life figures.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Here is an amazing love story where characters’ deep emotions and sense of honor for their countrymen will enchant readers.” (Romantic Times)
“This novel is full of excitement and thrills.” (Fresh Fiction)
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.
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.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
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 I specially liked the fact that it gives you many historical references that make the story more authentic.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.
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.
I will listen to Ravished by a HIghlander again because it is a good story and I like the characters.
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.
I thought the narrator's Scots accents were stereotypical, and she has a vocal pattern in her narration that borders on irritating at times.
Overall, I liked the book and the narrator enough to order the second book of this series.
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.
The story moved quickly before you could assume what would happen next. loved the characters, and loved that it was light, not melodramatic, didn't have to sit through tangents that writers get on with descriptions on the sky, or a rock, etc. it was a joy.
I love Audible!
Yes, It's an example of romance, love, loyalty and forgivenss...
Never Love a Highlander..
She did a very good job.
Some what, yes!!
My goodness, if there is a portal opening to this particular MacGregor era, id be the first to sign in, Paula Quinn please don't fail to announce it. This series got me tied so good and robbed from my routine.
A Big 5 to both the author and the narrator. Even after I finished listening, the burr and the brawny highlanders kept ringing and filling my head. I even caught myself repeating the dialogues. Ravished indeed.
Verra verra much a credit worthy listen.
I really enjoyed this story and the narrator did an excellent job. Now that I have started reading about the McGregor clan I have to keep going and will listen to the the rest of the Children of the Mist series. I rarely review, so when I do, it means I really like it
