She was ready to let her heart run wild....
Merry Stewart has had enough! Enough of her brothers, whose behavior would make even the most improper lady blush. Enough of their Highland home, which would surely have fallen to ruin were it not for her. She dreams of escaping into the arms of her betrothed, Alexander d'Aumesbery-even though they haven't yet met. But when they do, Merry is devastated. It seems he's no better than the men in her family.
So beautiful, so brazen . . . From the moment he meets Merry, Alexander is determined to make her his. Desperate to convince her he's nothing like the members of her roguish clan, he will prove he is every bit the well-mannered gentleman. Yet, beneath it all beats a heart as intense and uncontrollable as hers. And finally, when his life is threatened, Merry realizes he's the husband she's been waiting for . . . and their passion becomes the one thing that cannot be tamed.

Light funny listening, mystery subplot that doesn't over power. It takes a while to get used to the narrator but after listening I really did like her heavy scottish accent.
I am a audiobook NUT !!! I Can't Get Enough Romance Books!!!
the story was great i wish the reader was better no personality in her voice....................
I love books, it's my great escape.
If you like romance stories about the Highlanders, I do recommend this one. I will buy more from this author. In fact I did get all the books in this series and loved them all. I just love when I feel like my credit was well spent!
This is a must read book, I think the narrorator did an amazing job in capturing the Irish accent. I found myself identifying with the main character and hoping for a great outcome!
As usual Lynsay Sands has given us another spellbinding and intriguing tale. I always enjoy her plots with their great Loves and all the twists and turns of a good mystery. Her characters spring to life and her visuals form distinct settings for her stories. I enjoy a good Highland tale with it's inevitably hunk of a hero and beautiful heroine wrapped up in a epic love story. This is the quintessential historical romance at its finest.
NARRATOR : Marianna Palka is never among my favorites or even close yet I don't totally avoid her either. It is the odd cadence of her performance that bothers me. Her characters are each unique and recognizable and she does not speak with distracting mouthy sounds. Listen to her in the snippet!
HEAT FACTOR: Steamy!!
I was able to speed up the narration but then it seemed to fast. The story was exciting and it kept my interest. A great book would have been better but a good book is better then a bad book.
the story is good, full of humor and some of how we relate to each other as human beings. Set in the past middle ages in the Scottish Highlands. It also has some mystery and suspense to it. A good read or listen. I read the book and also purchased it on audio as I liked it so well.
a little more life in her reading would have improved things considerably. interactions between characters was good but in between could have had more life to it.
I laughed a lot throughout the book.
