Publisher's Summary

Fiercely loyal to his older brother, Alaric McCabe leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now he is prepared to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.

An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric's keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer, Alaric must make an impossible choice: Will he betray his blood ties for the woman he loves?

    Story
    "My favorite of the trilogy....I cried."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seduction of a Highland Lass to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version...but a listen to any book is much better than reading it now that I have found Audible!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's your basic scottish love story with ups and downs, sadness with a good outcome.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The entire book was good.


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

    Of course the part where I cried...you will know it when you hear it!


    Any additional comments?

    Read the entire trilogy in order.

    Story
    "Love, love, love this book - the whole series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but I would suggest she read the series in order. This is book 2 in the series. Maya Banks is such a good writer. I love and HAVE all her highlander books. Kirsten Potter is one of the best narrators that I have every listened to. She gives each character their own sound. She has one of the best scottish burrs!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! . She describes everything so well that I felt like I was there or at least was watching a movie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Aleric took Kaylee to the rock by the sea when she was so sick. I cried through the whole scene.


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

    I did - twice!


    Any additional comments?

    I love most all highland love stories. I love alpha men, which highlanders seem to be. They are such strong characters, they love their woman so deeply yet they don't let their love make them less strong. It only enhances their personalities. I hated when it ended, I wanted it to go on and on.

    "Don't care for historical romance but LOVED THIS!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seduction of a Highland Lass to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I love the accents!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduction of a Highland Lass?

    I cannot say, this book kept me on the edge - not knowing - until the very end!


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

    No, not before this series. She is great!


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

    I don't usually have extreme reactions to books however, this one came the closest to making me tear up!


    Any additional comments?

    As my title noted-I don't go for 'historical romances' however, I love Maya Banks and since this was on sale I thought I'd give this a try. I love this series and look forward to her other Scottish series.

    Story
    "Simply Wonderful"

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, thus my expectations for book 2 was not very high. In my experience very few authors devote as much attention to books 2 and 3 in a series as they do to book 1. Not so with Maya's McCabe series. Alaric and Keeley's story touched every inch of my heart. Their story caused laughter and a great many tears. I don't remember the telling of a story touching me so. I felt every bit of pain they felt leading up to their separation.

    The narrator did a wonderful job. During the telling of book 1, when speaking as a gentleman she often sounded like a bad Dracula imitation. But her dialect improved greatly during book 1 and was impeckable during book 2.

    I'm going to start book 3 now and I'm looking forward to the adventure.

    Story
    "It deserves a 10! Thde Best 2nd book EVER!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes yes yes! I have given some good reviews to some very good books of late. Yet this one deserves it so much more! I cried... streaming tears for a long time. .. to where my eyes were red and puffy. That sounds like its a sad story but it is more moving then sad. Its now in the very top of all the books I.have listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduction of a Highland Lass?

    This question could be such a spoiler! The moment in Maddys kitchen made me giggle. It was priceless. When the laird found Crispen missing from his bed... I can name quite a few. Just find out for yourself. ..!


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    I have to say that at first (as in book one ) She sounds so much like Martha Stewart that it's distracting. I have to admit I am not a fan of hers. However I very quickly forgot all about it. Her personalities are flawless. Her accents, cadence, emotional interpretation and textures are fabulous!


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

    Oh my... yes, I sure did. I stated that fact already and I stand by my original opinion. This one is, without a doubt,well worth the listen!


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit? Yep!

    "Another good listen in McCabe series"

    This is the 2nd book of the McCabe series and it's a good one. Love the way the relationship grows between h/h. Emotion,fun, wit, action, & love that endures. I didn't want to stop listening. You can read them alone but I recommend starting at the beginning of the series for you are familiar with the characters from previous book which adds to the depth of the story.
