Lady Arbella de Mowbray abhors the idea of marrying an English noble occupying Scotland. When she arrives in Stirling, she is thrown into the midst of a full battle between the Scots and the English. Besieged by rebels, she is whisked from her horse by a Highland warrior who promises her safety. But when he kisses her she fears she's more in danger of losing herself.
The last thing Magnus Sutherland wants is to marry the beautiful English lass he saved. As the laird of his clan, he has a responsibility to his clan and allies. But when Arbella is attacked by one of his own men, he determines the only way to keep her safe is to make her his. A decision that promises to be extremely satisfying. Magnus brings Arbella to his home of Dunrobin Castle in the Highlands. And that's where the trouble begins… Their countries are at war and they should be each other's enemy. Neither one considered their mock marriage would grow into a deeply passionate love. What's more, they were both unhappily betrothed and those who've been scorned are out for revenge. Can their new-found love keep them together or will their enemies tear them apart?

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
this was a nice easy listen...which is what I wanted. Mostly character interaction and romance with little history or battles. A few love scenes so it's R rated but not too bad, but mostly just a good little happy listen. I'm planning on listening to the whole series. Good housework..chicken coop & barn cleaning listen.
There isn't the tension expected in a "stolen bride" novel. There are many contradictions in the dialog and much of the story appears to have been taken from Julie Garwoods' Shadow Music novel, including much of the dialog which was almost verbatim.
No, I love the genre and will read more of it, but doubt I will read another by this author
This is the first time I've listened to Corrie James. I thought she did a very good job.
No, there was no excitement and just a so so story
Save your credit or money and read/listen to a Julie Garwood or Amanda Quick novel.
Corrie is very good I also look for her as the narrator now.
I'm listening to it for the second time
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I enjoyed the story and the narration very much. If you are into Highlander's, don't miss out!
Say something about yourself!
Short and sweet story about Magnus Sutherland a highland warrior who marries a Lady Arbella English woman to save her life after he rescues her from rebels and she is separated from her father. The chemistry between the two characters develop and we have a highlander love story.
Great narration can't wait to listen to book two.
This is a good one. If you love these Scottish romances, this one can be added to your list of good books to read.
I am in love with James Alexander Malcom Mackenze Frazer.
each book in the series can stand alone without a lot of back story. The story is told in the point of view of the two main characters which I found refreshing
I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.
I enjoyed this story. I thought the narrator brought the story to life. I enjoyed that though they both kept their secrets they didn't let them get in the way of how they truly felt for each other.
