Publisher's Summary

Connor, chieftain of the MacDonalds of Sleat, holds the fate of his people in his hands. Rival clans are plotting to take over his lands, and duty determines whom he will fight, trust... even marry. Seeking guidance, Connor turns to Ilysa, a young lass with the gift of foresight, who reveals an approaching danger - and a passion that burns only for him. But the warrior must make a powerful marriage alliance, and Ilysa's bloodline is far too humble.

With her powers to heal and see evil where others cannot, beautiful Ilysa dresses plainly, speaks softly, and loves her chieftain from afar.

    "Love Comes To Those Who Wait."

    What a great conclusion to this series! I know I'm not giving anything from the story away when I say that this book is filled with suspense, danger, passion, mystery, betrayal, romance and love. This story lived up to my expectations not only because of the love story between Connor and Ilysa but the story was exciting and held my attention to the end. It is sad that this is the last book in the series but each book had such unique angle that in the end it all came together to produce a great ending.

    The narrator did a wonderful job and I highly recommend this series.

    "AHHHH...... M.M. KEPT THE VERY BEST UNTIL LAST"

    I'm bereft that this fantastic series about 4 best friends who grew up to became fearless handsome Highland Warriors is finally over and I have to say goodbye forever (sob sob) to characters that I've laughed with, cried with, fought alongside - but above all, I loved them all (oh where's the tissues?).

    This compelling final book packs so much in as MM seemlessly whisks you away to the breathtaking Medieval Isle Of Skye where we find a Highland Chieftan, Connor, trying to rebuild the MacDonald Clan whilst also trying to battle between his duty and desire but honor, trust and sacrifice must be met and made for the chance of love and eternal happiness.

    There's sub plots galore involving vengeance, greed, evil villains, traitors, spies, secrets, danger, magic, myths, legends and Clan alliances which makes for an action packed, tension filled, adventure that captures one man's plight and the woman who never gave up on him or her dreams.

    Sooo many words could describe this listen:- addictive, exciting, emotional, bittersweet, action-packed, romantic, sad, passionate, a heart-wrenching love story but the one word I'm really left with, being a historical/romance lover, and after listening to this great book is UNMISSABLE.

    Worth a credit? I do love my drool-worthy hunky Highland tartan clad heroes but Connor's story, for me, had the whole package - so that's a definite YES. Could be stand-alone but don't deprive yourselves of a great series - download all 4 then sit back with a really big bowl of popcorn and enjoy.

    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

    "Great end to a SUPER series"

    This was my least favorite of the series, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.....just not AS GOOD as the others....IMO

    I loved IIysa and the story was multifaceted. There was much more going on than just a romance.

    This is a great series that no one who enjoys Highlanders should miss.

    "The Best of the Serie"

    I've listen to this one the whole night, I couldn't stop until I finished it just now. The only bad in this book is that it is the last one. I would so hope to continue to listen to another one in this serie. Maybe Neal's or Lachlan`s? If you love Highlander Romance Novels you must listen to this.

    "Great Great ending...."

    Wow! Such a good ending... I was so waiting for Conor's story... I loved it... I loved how we meet both main characters in early in the series. We know their personalilites already... So this was so good to see them come together... It wasn't a quick romance either... Conor was so strong waiting for the right woman. I totally loved it. Great Great ending...so wish there was another book...

    Narration was great!

    Great Credit, Buy or Sale!!

    "A 6 star read"

    Margaret Mallory truly saved the best for last. Her next book in this series should be about Lachlan, hopes she is working on it now.

    Story
    "Waiting for latest Outlander? Try this for fun."
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of two good Highlander series to read while waiting for the next Diana Gabaldon Outlander novel. ( I also liked Pamela Clare's McKinnon Brothers series). Yes, there's a formula, and yes, there's plenty of build up to great sex (that's part of the reason we get hooked isn't it?!), But I will say the plot and the characters in all four of this series intrigued me enough to have me looking for the next and the next. Question is what now? Still waiting on DG, so meanwhile madly reading reviews. The narrator was comfortable and dare I say 'inconspicuous' (didn't take away from the plot)? I liked having him in my head for 40+ hrs. I will say his lead male character voices tended to sound the same, but it didn't throw me. I like how the author did her homework with a few historical characters and locations (don't expect the historical detail of DG). Fun with fairies in this book!

    "Slightly Disapppointed"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I loved the three previous books in the series, and this one seemed more like the author was just trying to tie up the loose ends of the series, rather than focusing on the characters. I would recommend it only because it is the last book in the series and will give it closure.
