Publisher's Summary

He built impenetrable walls around his heart…

The Black Death showed no mercy when it took Rowan Graham's beautiful, young wife. With his clan nearly decimated, his heart torn to shreds, he is left to raise his newborn daughter alone. Rowan tries to keep the promises he made to Kate on her deathbed, save for one: He is unable to give his heart to another.

She has built walls around her own…

Lady Arline is forced into yet another arranged marriage - loveless and lonely. Behind Garrick Blackthorn's good looks lies a cruel, vindictive man. She wants nothing more than her marriage to end so that she might gain the freedom she has longed for.

Fate will bring those walls tumbling down…

Just before her marriage comes to a bitter and ugly end, her cruel husband kidnaps a sweet, innocent child. Arline does not realize the child belongs to a man from her past, a man who has haunted her dreams for more than seven years, until the night he comes to rescue his daughter.

Rowan Graham is surprised to learn that his enemy's wife is a woman he met but for a few short moments seven years earlier when dark times had fallen across Scotland. The same woman who had helped insure the freedom of his foster father and brother has been risking her life to care for his daughter.

Fate brings them together…but others are determined to pull them apart.

    "Super Great!!!"
    Where does Rowan's Lady rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would list this at the top!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Rowan because he was so honorable and lovable to his family and clan. You could cry with him and laugh with him.


    Have you listened to any of Brad Wills’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have listened to Brad and he is the only one I would listen to. He is super great with the voices. I loved how he did the little girl Lily. I just don't know how he can change to all of the characters and do a different voice and keep up with who's voice is who. His accent is perfect and very sexy. I call him Mr. Sexy. :-)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Honor and Love above all for his clan and family.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Suzan Tisdale because she can tell a historical romance without going into detail of the sex parts. It is a very clean book that all could read.

    "Fantastic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rowan's Lady to be better than the print version?

    I think both the written and the audio are Very Good. Its a different experience to read it or listen. I will say listening does add a different dimension to the story. It would come down to the individual, do you like to read or listen, and if your like me you'll do both! What's fun is to hear, Mr. Brad Willis, and his different voices for the characters. I absolutely Loved little Lilly's voice, so adorable. Then he'd be Rowan, and ahh, well, I'll just say, Mr. Willis is very GOOD at what he does! Very convincing as a leading hero, the best friend or the maid. He even had me snarling at Beatrice. Listen to find out why....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rowan's Lady?

    I'm sure there are specific moments I could bring up but I'd rather say, I laughed, teared up, giggled, sighed, felt anticipation, joy, was angry, and back to happy.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Suzan Tisdales' books. This series and all the characters are fun to "hang out" with.. This story is one I had read before, now I've listened and read it. I will revisit it again like an old friend and enjoy it anew.

    "Torn about the voices and the storyline"
    Any additional comments?

    So, yes the narrator's voice is yummy on most characters. I just couldn't understand the little girl Lily's voice and thought Beatrice was overdone. Having said that, I think I prefer a narrator to 'act' the parts as Brad does - nothing monotone here. The storyline was good, but on a few occasions I felt the main characters came across a bit clueless for not being able to figure out who the 'bad guy' was - not believable on that level. There was also the quick ending/epilogue. I got the impression the author was tired of writing and just wrapped everything up quickly. From my p.o.v. and considering the other historical romances I've been listening to of late, if you spend that much time investing in the build up between two characters (vis a vis romance), you should let the reader linger in their coming-together. It just felt a bit anticlimactic in the end. With all that said, I am looking forward to another installment since anything 'Highlander' tickles my fancy, but I'll be sure to get my fill of other steamier romances in the meantime and maybe check out some of the narrator's other performances.

    "Great narrator, very good book"

    I am always amazed by authors who do not choose a good narrator for their book. There is nothing worse than to read a review that makes the book sound very interesting only to have it ruined by a terrible narrator. Brad Wills is a very good narrator and he does not disappoint in Rowan's Lady. He has a wonderful narrating voice. Combined with a good book you can't go wrong. I enjoyed Rowan's Lady.

    Story
    "Suspense and Romance"
    Would you try another book from Suzan Tisdale and/or Brad Wills?

    yes, but I would not want to have Brad Wills do another "child voice". I do not think that Brad Wills should try imitating a child voice. His imitation of Lily was a bit annoying. She sounded like a whiny kid. The book would be better if they got someone else to do Lily.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rowen. I loved Brad Wills did a wonderful job of imitating a highland chieftan.


    What three words best describe Brad Wills’s performance?

    Masculine (Rowen) Charming (Lady Aileen) Annoying (Lilly). Thankfully, Lily had a minor role in the story.


    Did Rowan's Lady inspire you to do anything?

    Keep listening. Lady Aileen was very courageous in spite of her circumstances. Lady Aileen was concerned about doing what was right in spite of the danger to herself. Of course, the author gave you a glimpse of the heroine's internal stuggles so you wanted to find out what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was fairly well written. A lot of treachery, dangerous situations, and internal stuggles added to the excitement and suspense of the story.

    "narrator should'nt do child voices!"
    Would you listen to Rowan's Lady again? Why?

    I liked the story very much. The only downside to the audible version was I couldn't understand the narrator when he did Lily's voice-making it hard to imagine her as a

    believable chacter.




    What did you like best about this story?

    I like stories about highlanders, what else can I say!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Beatrice gets caught


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Betrayal, love, strenght

    I love listening to audio while I create my jewelry items, I love the intonations of his voice, great to listen to!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Captivating Scottish Adventure

    Story
    "Betrayal and rescue"

    Brad Willis is excellent as usual but his 4 yo little girl voice was very hard to understand. He does a better job on female voices than many men

    The story line had a few twists just as you think things are going to work out. Although predictable, this was an enjoyable read. I loved Arlene's spunk and steadfast belief in fairness and justice toward all. Rowan was a fierce chief with a big heart and devoted to his wee daughter and deceased wife. A kidnapping brings the two unhappy people together. Watching the two of them battle through past betrayals and loss to a mutual understanding was well written
    Worth a credit
