From the Isle of Skye to the battlefields of France, Duncan MacDonald has never escaped the memory of the true love he left behind. Deemed unworthy of a chieftain's daughter, Duncan abandoned the lovely Moira to prove his worth in battle. Now, when called upon to rescue her from a rival clan, one thing is certain: Moira's pull on his heart is stronger than ever. Bartered away in marriage to a violent man, Moira will do anything to ensure she and her son survive.
When a rugged warrior arrives to save her, the desperate beauty thinks her prayers have been answered - until she realizes it's Duncan. The man who once broke her heart is now her only hope. Moira vows never again to give herself - or reveal her secrets - to the fierce warrior, but as they race across the sea, danger and desire draw them ever closer.

The Warrior is a entertaining addition to this highland series. I enjoyed the other books in this series so I was looking forward to Duncan's story. As with the other books, the characters are well written and are easily relatable to the heartbreak, struggles, and triumphs along the way. I admired the enduring love between Duncan and Moira and the strong family bond they shared. Oh, and I loved Sar the dog! He was a wonderful addition to the family.
My only negative would be that any conflicts in the story got resolved too quickly. The battles could have been a little more suspenseful and challenging. Well, maybe that will happen in the next book in the series.
Derek Perkins does a great job narrating. His voice has a way of bringing the characters to life, which I appreciate.
Overall, this is a very nice.....feel good book.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I love second chance romance novels and this was no different.
Take 2 lovers from the opposite side of the proverbial track. A well meaning father who thinks his daughter marrying into status equals her being happy. A misunderstanding between lovers and you have a great story
Anybody that takes a wee peek at ma Library will see that I love love love a braw Highlander and their turbulent romances and this one packs so much in - so be prepared, as you start to listen, because it'll suck you right in. Then, as it sweeps you away to the Glens of Medieval Highlands, you will be introduced to some great characters who get themselves involved in an action-packed, fast-paced journey with so many highs and lows you'll just hate to press either the 'pause' or 'stop' buttons.
As the adventure begins you hear of the heartache of two young lovers (Duncan & Moira) as lies and betrayal leads to broken hearts, lost love and promises with such devastating results including abuse, hardships, yearnings and longings. Then in walks an old Seer (daaa daaa) and with her prophecy comes the intrigue, danger, revenge, murder, Clan conflicts, desire, regrets, surprises, villains to thwart but through it all there's a chance at love (ahhh).
This complex, emotional, passionate, tender, touching, moving, romantic, sensual story teaches us that rather than pride and punishment - with forgiveness and trust you can get your heart's desire.
Could be a stand-alone listen, but life's short so why deprive yourselves of a great series.
Worth a credit? I think I've described the myriad of emotions and events held within the many pleasurable hours of listening that awaits you so all you have to do now is press the 'Add To Cart' button then you too will be entwined in, entertained by and engrossed in this listen - so that, my fellow lads and lassies is a YES.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This was awesome... I just love this series. Best Highlander books I have read/listen to in a long, long time.. Best since Maya Banks McCabe Series! The book just get better and better. I just cannot wait until Connor's book.
They have finally taken back the castle they lost in the first book, way way way in the beginning of the story, the castle that Duncan's dad was keeper of, and Connor has made that his homebase... So now.. you know book 4 is going to be sooo good. I can not wait.
Narration was awesome. Not a 5, neither was plot... not a 5, but oooo so close. The smexing needs to be way way erotic or way way romantic for me to rate a 5, but this one was a close 4...
A good buy if you have all the other books, a good credit too. A must if you haven't started the series... Start them...you won't be disappointed!
