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?

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!
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.
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!
Kieran Elliot, narrator...love this man's voice.It was perfect for this story.
Fun story with a bit of mystery in it.Just a tad long at times.
Really liked Joan, she as spirit, she is fun and lovable.
Cam is also a good lovable man. The secondary characters are also fun.
You can never go wrong with a Lynsay Sands novel! This one is especially well done. From beginning to end there isn't a chance your mind will wander.
I've listened to this one repeatedly and although there is little chance of forgetting it the fact is that it's so good that that doesn't even matter!
From plot and personalities to visuals this is a incredibly and thoroughly enjoyable book.
NARRATOR: Very good. This may be the only book I recall Keiran Elliott has narrated (that I've heard... ) and that is a shame because this performance is steller
CREDITWORTHY? Absolutely YES!
HEAT FACTOR: A full rolling boil!
The narrator makes the story come alive for me. Keiran Elliott did just that for me. His voice drew me in and kept me. Excellent.
I would recommend this book. I wanted to keep listening. The story also held some mystery around "who done it" which was fun to try and work out before it was discovered in the story.
Oh Yes. From the beginning there is action, development of friendship, great passion, suspense and then love. What a combination.
Without giving away the story, I liked the way Jo and Cams friendship developed. When Cam finds out that Jo is not a young man, his whole way of dealing with her changes. Jo didn't even catch on that his actions changed toward her. There was uncertainty of what would happen to them in the future since they were of two different classes. Also the letter Jo had to deliver opened up a whole new chapter for her. The story really develops nicely.
Love his narrative.
I love LS. Her books are so enjoyable. It was interesting to find out who the murderer was and the number of victims. I had a different person picked out.
a thoroughly enjoyable book. Made my laugh with the humour along the way! It was heart warming love story where you just long for that happy ending!
i loved the highland male characters for their child like humour!
