Publisher's Summary

Book three in Monica McCarty's USA Today bestselling Highland Guard Trilogy, of which Publishers Weekly raved, "Readers who deplore wallpaper historicals will appreciate not only the romance but McCarty's efforts to go beyond the superficialities of historical Scotland."

Embedded deep behind enemy lines, Arthur “Ranger” Campbell is prized for his razor-sharp senses and his ability to blend into the shadows. But when Arthur infiltrates the clan of the chieftain who murdered his father, his heart is locked on revenge. Inside he faces unexpected resistance from the sweetest of obstacles—a honey-haired siren who is his enemy’s daughter. Intrigued by this ruggedly handsome newcomer to her father’s forces, the vivacious, enchanting Anna MacDougall is a woman whose skill at uncovering deception rivals Arthur’s own.

Though yearning for a quiet life with a good man to love, Anna is drawn to this mysterious knight whose eyes devour her but whose words push her away. As danger, treachery, and the threat of looming war draw them closer into each other’s arms, a warrior made of steel must make a choice from the heart: love or revenge.

    "VT. FAN"
    Where does The Ranger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    TOP 50 (I HAVE 512)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ranger?

    I ALWAYS LOVE THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE REST OF MCCLOUDS WARRIORS. THE PASSION BETWEEN ANNA AND CAMPBELL WAS V.E.R.Y GOOD.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    IN THE BEGINNING WHEN HE FIRST MEETS ANNA AND SAVES HER LIFE.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    THE WHOLE BOOK MOVED ME. THIS IS A GREAT SERIES. EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE DIFFERENT NARRATIORS IN SOME OF MCCARTY'S BOOKS AND THEY ARE ALL VERY GOOD MCNAB DOES A GREAT JOB ON THE HIGHLAND GUARD SERIES. HE COULD IMPROVE ON THE FEMALE VOICE I THINK ( HIS VOICE IS VERY DEEP AND LOW, SENSUAL FOR THE MALE VOICES SO I OVERLOOK THE FEMALE VOICE SHORTCOMINGS.)

    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

    "Couldn't get into this one..not bad..just not good"

    While I liked the characters on their own....I just couldn't get into the relationship. I found I didn't care if they got together or not. The best part is the interaction between the Highland Guard guys... But I listened to most of this on double speed. Still moving on to the next in the series because I enjoyed the first 2 books in the series....maybe this book was just a bump in the series road for me.

    "Not my favorite in the series"

    The Ranger was not my favorite in Monica McCarty's series only because the book didn't seem to be as focused on history. It was more about the ridiculous relationship between the two main characters Arthur and Anna. I found the relationship irritating and distracting from the should be story. Robert McNab, however, is a wonderful narrator. Oh what a voice.

    "Amazing Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ranger to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version so I cannot compare fairly!

    The realistic history research this author has done!


    Which character – as performed by Robert McNab – was your favorite?

    RANGER! :)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending! :)


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a highland romance fan, you have to read this series! One of the best out there!

    "Other Rangers Stand Up Better to This One"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If one searches for adventure, no; for sex and romance, yes!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert McNab’s performances?

    No, he lacks the necessary authentic Scottish Brogue, rarely did it come through. Rather, he sounded more like one of the cartoon characters on my grandson's shows. Stilted and pompus. He made the heroin sound weak and dependant rather than the stong willed adventerous lady of Monica's creation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily, I enjoy listening when I drive. If its a long enough drive-one sitting does it, but I like the continuation

    "Excellent! Monica Mccarty's best series!"

    Oh my. I've now listened to every single McCarty book on Audible. I must say that her highland Guard series is my very favorite.
    Each book is better than the last, and this one is wonderful.

    If you're trying to decide where to start with Monica McCarty books, read this series. While Robert Mcnab takes some getting used to, it is well worth it. The Highland Guard series is excellent!!!
    Start with The Chief, The Hawk, then The Ranger.

    I am sad that the rest of the series is not available. I hope fans will write to Recorded Books, Audible and Tantor media, and let them know we are waiting for the rest of this extraordinary series.
