This one was in my library for a while and I finally got the chance to listen to it. I enjoyed this book because it kept my interest throughout. T..Show More »his entertaining story has adventure, romance, slight mystery, family struggles and intrigue. My only negative statement is that it lacked some believability. Both the hero and the heroine seemed a little over the top with their "feelings'. Storm seems too perfect at times and lacked emotional strength. Tavis is the typical "play the field" type of guy who was a bit wishy-washy. (So many times I just wanted to say "Get some backbone you idiot!). The other characters I found more acceptable and realistic. That being said, I still recommend this book and am giving this story 4 stars because it was the type of book you can't put down.....I had to know how it ended.
The narrator also made it easy to listen to. Her accents were really good for each character..
This highland adventure was better than the first in this series (His Bonnie Bride). I thought the main characters in this book were more tenacious, ..Show More »likeable, and believable.
The heroine, Ailis, is a very caring spunky young woman who is courageous and strong. The hero, Alexander, is a man who has trust issues with women. He doesn't start out likable but as the book progresses you find out why he is so bitter.
Overall, this book is an emotional, detailed, action packed adventure that is sure to keep your attention. If you enjoy highland stories put this one on your list!
This book is one of Hannah Howell's early books and it shows in the writing. It does have some sensual or sexual tension between the main characters..Show More » but it doesn't seem as strongly developed as in her later books.
I enjoy books that have characters with flaws and Islaen and Iain definitely have issues, one of which takes manipulation to resolve. Islean has low self-esteem with very little "backbone" and Iain suffers with deep fear which manifests into him looking like a jerk most of the time. Together they learn, become closer, and develop a strong bond.
No, this book is not the most spectacular story but it is not a total disaster either. I still found this book to be likable in many areas so I would still give this book 3-1/2 stars. Its an even better listen if you wait and get it on sale!!
