Mairi MacGregor hoped to never again lay eyes on Connor Grant. She was 10 and one when he promised her he would one day build them a home in her beloved Highlands, spending their lives together. But she was 10 and seven and foolishly weeping when he rode out of the Highlands to join the English Royal Army. She wouldn’t be so foolish as to waste tears on him now. Devoted to her beloved Scotland, Mairi believes Connor is a turncoat and a liar, and there’s nothing she despises more than that. No one but her brother, Colin, knows that Mairi is part of a rebel militia, quietly gaining intelligence and exposing traitors to Scotland using whatever means necessary. Now, at King James’ court in England, she’s determined to keep her missions secret and keep the one man with the power to bring her to her knees at arm’s length—her heart be damned.
Royal Captain Connor Grant never wanted to leave Mairi, but he’d had no choice. It was his duty to serve his family’s name, and no matter how he asked her to wait, his lass had refused. He’s never stopped loving her, though, and seeing the beautiful, passionate, yet mysterious woman she’s become at court has taken his breath away. But King James has powerful enemies, and Connor isn’t deaf to the whispers of treachery in court. So when the king disappears in the middle of the night with Mairi’s brother as his only protection, Connor suspects Mairi is involved. As one secret after another unravels about the king’s whereabouts and the whispers of a coup grow ever stronger, can Connor trust the one woman who still has his heart?

I HAVE SO WAITED TO CONNOR AND MAIRI'S STORY IN THIS SERIES. AND QUINN HAS DEVLIVERED. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF SCOTTISH HIGHLAND ROMANCE YOU PROBABLY HAVE READ THE OTHER 2 (RAVISHED BY A HIGHLANDER, SEDUCED BY A HIGHLANDER) BUT THERE IS ANOTHER LAIRD OF THE MIST, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT IN AUDIO AND IT SHOULD BE I THINK. MACDUFFIE AS USUAL DOES A FABULOS JOB AS NARRATOR. BRAVO!
I liked this book best out of the series. It's best to read the series in order it is more exciting to hear what other characters were doing at the same time as the ones from the previous book. It flowed VERY well. I liked the way this book tied up the series and gave a conclusion to all three books. It also had more suspense & mystery than the others. Good series if not just a little predictable. At times the relationships between the main characters seemed to drag on and repeat the same feelings. However, the stories were very interesting and well read.
eh. Not sure. About 1/3 of the way in, Mairi (the heroine) really started to grate on my nerves. I understand she is suppose to be a tough guy but she came across arrogant and ignorant at the same time. To quick to act before thinking. It got old after awhile. If I was Connor I would have throttled her.
Again, it was ok. A little too sugary, sappy but ok. Can't give too much away.
A little monotonanous after awhile. Accents were ok.
Good series. I bought the next one in the series. I really enjoyed the first two - they weren't quite as predictable and a little more in depth.
Historical romance junkie. Who doesn't love romance?
I love Paula Quinn's writing. Her use of grammar and description are impeccable and her ability to tell a story superb. Her characters in this series weave in and out of each book meshing the entire series together seamlessly. The rich history woven into this story is fascinating and suspenful. The love scenes are erotic and real.
You can't help but love the heroine in this book. She's bold and courageous and even vulnerable. Quinn makes her characters believable and likeable.
The reader does a great Scottish accent and I enjoyed listening.
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I love the children of the mist series. I hope there will be many more!!!!
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
I probably would...maybe fast through some parts but slow through others! I loved the romantic interactions and the banter between Mairi and Connor, but then there were parts that seemed to be a bit repetitive.
The love scene in the cabin!
She is either growing on me or she is getting better at the male highlander voices...not sure which. Still not my favorite narrator, but she is way better than in the first book.
I did feel like this book in the series was better than the first, but not as good as the second. BUT Connor and Mairi are by far my favorite characters. It came down to the author spent too much time reminding me of what had happened in the first book and then the struggle within Mairi and Connor's own minds about how they "would not fall in love again" got old. I mean it seemed like the same thing over and over. That being said...when Connor and Mairi interacted it was fabulous! Connor was so strong but loving and never once acted like a sap. Mairi was strong willed and physically capable to take care of herself but enjoyed feeling like a woman with Connor. I can totally understand why...Connor is .... delicious!
The third in the series and still captivating
After the fall of her brothers into domesticated bliss, Mairi won't settle for less, even to the one and only man she had. Listen up Connor Grant.
Paula Quinn has created what series are made for, captivating until the last moment. Carrington MacDuffie just made it more so.
Story of a strong man earning back his lost love. Mary proves to be hard to convince of is faithful unending love.Full of Highland intrigue, and helps to continue the story from the previous books on the series.
