I only keep a small amount of books on my phone bc it has only so much memory. This is one of the books I keep.
How do I narrow it to just one?
He reads the story so well. And his accent, which I've remarked upon before, is excellent
absolutely! Which is hard for me during the week

The story ranks very high, BUT Narrator, Antony Ferguson is Awful. He really cannot sound like a female or Childs voice He is horrible in that area.
I am not sure. I have to think about that.
No Not really!! I keep buying his books with the hopes he will improve on the female voices but so far he hasn't!!
It did both I laughed and I cried!!
The Arrow is my favorite story so far. It is perfect in every department, characters, romance, funny, adventurous, secrets and a tad of angst, not to much. I love the ending epilog. I felt like I was there in each and every scene with "Arrow" Gregor MacGregory the Highland Guard Marksmen and Archer and Cate Lochmaben or is that really her name, Cate has big secrets as to her identity. Gregor finds her trapped and staving in a well after her village was attacked by the English. Cate was only 15 at the time. Six years later at age 21 Cate goes after her man. Gregor is know to be the handsomest man in Scotland and his wee ward wants him for her own. The story is very funny at times and very sad at times. This is one sexy hot story and I love that Monica McCarty concentrated on the romance side of this story and not the war between Scotland and England. I loved that the couple was actually stationary at the castle and not moving around while fighting the war England. This is My favorite in the Highland Guard series so far!!!
I expected a different storyline and outcome for The Arrow. After all the previous stories, I expected Gregor to end up with a better and equally matched woman, and just as "pretty".
My daughter and I have listened to the series and love them. They are written very well. As the narrator reads the story you are transported to a time we will never see. You wonder, how much of what is written could have really happened? It's an amazing group of books. At the end of each book she gives you a history of how she got her characters as well as a short history lesson of the period - it's amazing and again - Very well done.
Fantastic journey into romance and Robert Bruce's Scotland. Great twists and an agonizing/vindicating journey to the HEA. Great read if you have been bored with historical romances and need a really good one!
