New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands returns to the Highlands of Scotland in her hottest new historical romance yet!
Highlander Campbell Sinclair is no stranger to battle, so when he sees a lad attacked by bandits, he jumps into the fray. He didn't count on being stabbed. Grateful to the boy for nursing him back to health, Cam offers to accompany Jo safely to his destination. But when he accidentally comes across the lad bathing in the river, Cam discovers that Jo is actually Joan...with the most sinful of curves.
Joan promised her mother that she would deliver a scroll to the clan MacKay. But traveling alone is dangerous, even disguised as a boy. When a Scottish warrior lends his aid, she is more than relieved...until he surprises her with lingering kisses and caresses that prove her disguise hasn't fooled him. As their passion ignites, will the secrets of the scroll force a wedding...and lead to a love she's never known?

~~~"HOPEFUL ROMANTIC"~~~ *** Love Audio Books....Especially Historical Romances *** ~~ "Reviews Should Never Contain spoilers ~~
This book is one great adventure from beginning to end. This is the story of Cam, who is sworn widower and Joan a young woman who's mother just recently died. They set out on a fast paced adventure that progresses from friendship to romance to love.
It is a well written book that is filled with charming characters, cute fun, adventure, mystery, and romance,. The narrator was wonderful and his accent was so........divine.
This one is worth a try especially if you enjoy highlanders.
Not just a romance, which was was well written by itself, but a successful mystery as we'll. The performance of the narrator, Kieran Elliot, made this piece believable, authentic, and truly a joy to listen to.
Joan and Cam both are my favorite characters. Joan for her strength, even though she doubted herself more than once, was courageous in solving the intrigue involving her and her new friends and family and risking herself to love completely without reservation. And Cam for his steadfast love and devotion to Joan in spite of her lack of ladylike qualities.
My first listen of Keiran Elliott. I will definitely look for more of his performances.
Epilogue, when Cam discovered Joan in labor, Joan could not banish Cam from the birthing room no mater how hard she tried to spare him from possible death of her and the child. Love, joy, possible death, survival-what a rush of emotion the author and narrator thrilled us with to the end!
THE VERY END WAS THE BEST
IT COULD MATCH MANY HIGHLANDER BOOK I LISTEN TO
NO, COULD HAD BEEN A BETTER NARRATOR
My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.
The plot is very well written. The characters are developed well. This story has romance, mystery and suspense. I actually found myself avoiding talking to people because I didn't want to spend one minute away from this book. I was that involved.
I am not one who writes a review giving away details of the story. People who do so give away too much information or spoil a critical point in the story. It is an excellent, romantic, sensual story with mystery and intrigue. What can get better than that.
Kieran Elliott is a breath of fresh air when it comes to a male narrator. I literally shuttered and got goosebumps when I heard him speaking in a sensual Scottish brogue. He did not make his female characters sound weak or simple minded while adding a softer side to his voice. The male characters were strong, kind and tender. Mr. Elliot is the first male narrator I truly feel encompassed all of the characters personality extremely well and created each character's voice in an appealing manner. I will listen to Mr. Elliot read anything.
Great book. Excellent narrator. Highly recommend it.
Never judge a book by its movie
Jo is travelling from to England to Scotland to deliver a message from her dead mother to Laird Ross MacKay. Dressed as a boy, Jo is attacked by bandits and is saved by Campbell Sinclair.
Cam and his Clan are long standing allies of the MacKay clan, and offers to escort "the boy" there.
When Cam discovers Jo is really Joan, the mayhem begins.
There were so many memorable moments, from Cam discovering Jo's real identity, to meeting Laird Ross McKay to the Beautiful Epilogue.
LOVED HIM!!!! Every Scottish Romance should be narrated by him. His accent is real!!!
I loved his voice, a real Scotsman
Masks, Mishaps and Misunderstandings
This is book 2 of the English Bride in Scotland series.
Well worth the credit. And you will LOVE Keiran Elliott's narration!!
reviews for fun
I have Scottish blood running through my veins. Narrator Keiran Elliott's accent was music to my ears. I loved the story, I loved the narrator and the story had a little mystery to it. I for one could not find any fault with the book nor the narrator. My Nana was born in Scotland. Our clan's motto is Bydand!
