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?

"The second book in Bank's trilogy shows her ability to write fast-paced, sexually charged, emotionally intense romances." (Romantic Times)
Researcher, editor, writer, francophone, anglophile. Started listening to audiobooks to conciliate my love of knitting and novels.
I'm pleasantly surprised with Maya Banks' highlanders. She an excellent storyteller and you really feel for her characters. I'm definitely going to listen to the third in this series. I also recommend reading Paula Quinn highlander books.
Who knew being stabbed and on death's door could launch someone into the fascinating world of the highlander McCabes. This story picks up where the first left off. The pace of the story keeps you interested in the lives of the hero and heroine from beginning to end. The romance is so steamy and sweet at the same time. And at the end it keeps you wanting more.
I thoroughly enjoyed both the narrator and the story. I purchased and listed to the whole series and loved them all. With other purchases, there have been times when the choice of narrator detracted from the story....not true here. Well done!
love hystorical scottish romance stories, scotland and my Pit Bulls. what an exciting life i lead ( lol, lol ) :O)
I loved this book. it actually brought tears to my eyes towardthe middle and the end, but loved the ending. everything was great, I had to force myself to stop listening to it so i would have something to listen to latter. A+
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
Maya Banks has created a wonderful trilogy with strong characters. This is the second book and my favorite! With this story I cried my eyes out, I won't spoil the story and tell you why. This trilogy is a must read for anyone who loves highlanders! The narrator is wonderful as well!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
great historical listen
Ewan story is book 1. Great introduction to all characters. A true Historical.
This is #2, more romance and tenderness in this story. Our lady character has spunk!
Ms Potter's Highland brogue is spot on which was why I purchased #2 & # 3.
endearing moments through out the book. Krispin adds so many smiles to the story
You can buy #1 & # 3 for the plot, but the enjoyment come from listening to all 3 stories.
I don't know, but I do consider the second book to be an improvement over the first
It is very much like the first,but the writing is better.
Potter did a better job of reading this book as a LOVE story.
The moment by the Loch was very touching.
I'm glad I gave this series and narrator another chance.

I'm loving the series going to download book 3.
I enjoying the way Maya Banks writes. She writes every well and how she describes the action in her scenes....she gets me all tense inside.
Kirsten Potter is a great narrator. She has feeling when she reads. Some narrator just read either too fast or slow with no feeling. Not K Potter she does her work so well that I'm grinning or have tears in my eyes. I actually found Maya Banks because I wanted to hear Kirsten Potter read.
I love this series. You can;t go wrong in listening to this book. Even if the Scottish Highlander isn't your thing this would still be a great book. It has a story line that keeps you interested that starts with the first book and is filled with romance.
