Publisher's Summary

The Complete Series ~

Feisty Maggie MacBede will never marry a warrior. Och no! With eight strapping brothers and a warrior of a Da, she has had enough of holding her own against great headstrong men. She’ll not risk her heart to the sword. Give her a poet, a bard, any man but a fighting man, and she will find her match.

Talorc the Bold, the Laird MacKay, has no care for Maggie’s foolishness. When he heard the MacBede battle cry, “For Our Maggie!” and witnessed the impossible victory it spurred, he set out to marry her for the clan. Then he felt her in his arms and knew he would marry her for himself and the grand power of their mating.

The clan intercedes, the two are Handfasted, married for a year and a day as an enemy lurks deep in the belly of the clan. By winning his bride’s love, Talorc may just lose her life.

    Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.

    "Wonderful highland romance"
    Any additional comments?

    Strong men and women. Conflict between clans and within families. A romance that was meant to be but has so many obstacles. Unpredictable, sensual, dark villains, spies and betrayal. Great story and the narrator did it justice. You can get lost in this one.

    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

    Story
    "Okay Highland story.. heroine a bit annoying"

    First off the narrator does a good job I am just not a big fan of male narrators for some reason.

    The problem I have with this book is that I never was completely sold on the characters. I didn't necessarily feel that they were falling in love or feeling attraction really. The author wrote it but her writing didn't make me feel it. That doesn't mean that I disliked the book it was good it was fine it just didn't invoke any major feelings within me. It was one of those that I did not have a problem taking the ear buds out and waiting until morning to listen to more of it.

    It's hard to like the heroine because she's stupid and unrealistic about a lot of things. I don't condone senseless violence but we're talking about the 1700's and there's a rebellion going on. This guy IS fighting for his country and honor and revenge! It just it makes no sense for her to be like "no you can't harm anybody" and all this ....it just gets annoying.

    I'm not going to immediately read the rest of the books in the series. Even though I want to find out some of the other stories this book series just may not be at the very top of my list it may be something I have to revisit when I don't have quite as many really good books waiting for me to listen to.

    "hard to put down! "

    This story was well written. I will probably look for more books by Becca St John. And Agliotta did an excellent job narrating. I had no problem following which character was speaking. Enjoyed it!

    WOW, what a wonderful story. I loved it! Maggie was a strong willed women and a great match to a strong Laird. It was filled with adventure, betrayal and love!! I could not stop listening to this one. It was well written and the narration was well done.

    "It was ok"

    I enjoyed the story and the narrator was excellent on the female parts. But when it came to doing the male voice she was not very good. Not enough feeling for a strong alpha male. did not finish listening to it. I will read the rest. Worth a credit That is up to you.
