David Spade is best known for his harsh "Hollywood Minute" sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Tommy Boy and Joe Dirt, and his seven-year stint as Dennis Finch on the series Just Shoot Me. Now, with a wit as dry as the weather in his home state of Arizona, the "comic brat extraordinaire" delivers a memoir.

I was surprised at what a great story this was, and how much I enjoyed David Spade's telling of it - I'm not even a fan of his. However, I enjoyed his style or writing and presentation. Definitely worth the time.

They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

I loved the story, but the reader was so monotone that it drove me nuts!

The reader was very good, and I think he did a great job telling the story. The writing, however, tended to go on and on at times, and the author says things that seem to be profound, but yet aren't. I kept listening, because I really liked the characters, but many times I would look to see how much time was left, and was amazed that I still had 3 or 4 more hours to go.
