    "I lost interest..."

    I wanted to like this book because I like the author's style and the narrator is very good. But unfortunately About two thirds of the book in I lost interest completely. There was no conflict at all. It was just pretty monotonous. The hero is an ex soldier dealing with PTSD. The heroine was stood up at the altar. The hero happened to be there and in a very casual conversation decided to marry her. The story was hot but nothing interesting happened. I guess it was missing the Mackenzie spice of the previous books. I'm returning this one.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "5 STARS - 5 WORDS LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK"

    Although Audible hasn't listed it yet this is book 5 of The Highland Pleasures series and phew ..... what a book it was.

    You have a very damaged Highlander - in walks Elliot who was mentally and physically tortured in India and who has returned home to the Highlands to try to stop the wedding of his childhood sweetheart however he is barely but desperately clinging on to his sanity. Juliana is about to be married but her heart has really always belonged to her childhood sweetheart Elliot - then fate steps in and gives the two another chance.

    If you're a historical romance lover then this book will move you, excite you, sadden you, thrill you .... but above all, in the end it will give you that 'Ahhhhhhhh' feeling that comes after finishing a book that has ticked each and every box. This plot has passion, romance, sex, kilts, drama, funny moments, sad times, a couple of sub plots but above all there's a broken man clawing his way back to life and a woman willing to help him.

    This could easily be a stand alone listen but the others in this series have each been a really great listen as JA's brilliant writing brings to life her fantastic characters and, as you mentally play each scene, you too will be drawn into a bygone era.

    Worth a credit? Well that's a billowing YES across a clear blue sky.

    Story
    "Beautiful, romantic duo!"

    Elliott is the brother of Ansley who is married to a Mackenzie and I love the Mackenzie brothers. They are mentioned from time to time but this story is about Elliott overcoming his darkness with the help of his first love Julianna. The narrator is perfect for these stories, she does a wonderful job!

    "In line for my favorite!"

    Who knew PTSD could be so sexy?! Okay, so not really. But imagine with me Chris Hemsworth as a Scottish soldier in India; captured and tortured, finally free to pursue health and happiness in Scotland. A beautiful lass that he loved even as a youth waiting at the altar.
    Great book. Goes to a darker place sexually & sensually than any of Ashley's other books. As always, great characters & perfect narration.

    "Loved this one! One of my faves of the series!"

    This is one of the best books of the series. I love the take charge attitude of the heroine and the way she takes care of and stands by her man, no matter what. Definitely recommend this one!

    "Good but not my favorite in the series"

    I enjoy this series because it has many books in it. I enjoy the characters from book to book. This one was dark which might be the reason I was not drawn to it as I am to the others in the series.

    Story
    "Pretty good..."

    I prefer JA's shifter bound series.... that is JA's best writing...

    This book falls under the Mackenzie Brother series... The female is the sister or daughter-in-law or something... of Cameron's new wife...

    The smex of course is great... in that regency way... this kinda feels a lot like Ian's book...but Ian's book was way way better. I still liked it though...

    Narration was great.. This is Dawe's best type of narration... (regency-like)...

    Great credit if you have the Mackenzie Brothers series.. this falls after book 4... next comes Cam's son book... I hope it's better than this one...
