Elisabel de Carron is a young woman with a massive legacy weighing on her slender shoulders. As heiress to the Earldom of Ayr, she is a cousin to the king through her mother, and the king considers her a most valuable bargaining tool in the politics of Scotland. But Elisabel isn’t a willing pawn for the king - she’s concerned only with saving her family home, Castle Torridon, from the repeated attacks of a former ally. After a particularly nasty siege, Elisabel realizes that they cannot withstand another, and she is forced to summon the most feared mercenary in Scotland, The Red Fury.

Unruly. Unmarried. Unapologetic. Catriona Mackenzie’s reputation precedes her everywhere she goes. Her beloved late aunt Zelda taught Cat to live out loud and speak her mind, and that’s exactly what she does when Zelda’s legacy - a refuge for women in need - comes under fire. When her quest puts her in the path of the disturbingly mysterious Hamlin Graham, Duke of Montrose, Cat is soon caught up in the provocative rumors surrounding the dark duke. Never one to retreat, Cat boldly goes where no one else has dared for answers.

I thought maybe it was going to be a little repetitive of other parts of the series, however, I was totally wrong! It was funny, sad, happy, tense and just an overall joy to listen to. I will not give a summary of what happens because I don't like it when others give away half of the book in their review. I will just tell you that there is just the right amount of "steamy" and a very different storyline than most that I've read.

Loved it and would recommend to anyone and everyone!

I really enjoyed this whole series, however, I agree with one of the other reviewers, why change narrators for every book. The narrator for this book was not good at all. Made all the characters sound like Neanderthals. Sorry Lynsay...please listen to it before it goes out. I do love your books and will look forward to the next one ( depending on the narrator). <3

Dear Listener: Season of the Sun first appeared in 1991. Zarabeth, with hair as red as an Irish sunset, is chosen by Magnus Haraldsson, a Viking on a trading visit to York, to be his wife. She is both stunned and fascinated by this man’s bluntness, his arrogance, his absolute belief that she is meant to belong to him. He also makes her laugh and ultimately she gives him her trust, not only with her future but with that of her little sister, Lotti. But Zarabeth’s stepfather, Olav the Vain, has no intention of setting a bride price on Zarabeth.

I loved this book. I almost didn't order it because of the mixed reviews. It was different from your normal Scottish Romance, however, once I got into it and knew the characters, I was hooked. There were ups and downs in the story which made it seem real. You have to listen to this one with an open mind...the rapes and beatings were a little disturbing, however, that IS the way things were in that time and place. You wouldn't change a history book because it was disturbing... so keep it all in perspective. I am one of Anne Flosnik's fans... so for me, the narration was wonderful. It's worth a chance to listen to this one...

I would say that the narrator was to blame for ruining this book, however, it was not good on its own. The writing was like something you would read in a 4th-grade class. Too many characters that were not established and it just got very confusing as to what and who was going on. Terrible. I will not read this author again nor will I buy anything narrated by this narrator.

I loved this book. It had twists and turns and many surprises. It is very very steamy, however, I happen to love that!! Can't wait for the next book in the series!!

The Narrator was good. She didn't do anything that took away from the story. I would definitely listen to her again.

I recommend this book if you love some steam with your romance!! I do...

Loved this story and all the characters. I laughed at the banter and the story flowed easily. Rosalyn Landor, as usual, is brilliant on doing male voices and her Scottish brogue is perfect.

I totally recommend this book and also the one before it. Steamy and funny... can't wait for the next one. Come on Alyson McLayne...write fast!! LOL
