Eleanor Ackard always knows the right thing to do to help her patients when it comes to their relationships, but when an almost-vacation with her immature boyfriend makes it clear that she needs to take her own advice, she rethinks her plans and sets off on a solo vacation to Scotland. But when a boat tour ends up with her stranded inside a haunted castle, Eleanor is faced with the opportunity to change history. Thrilled to escape her mundane routine for just a little while, she jumps at the chance, never expecting for a moment that it’s her heart that is as likely to change as history.

Excitement, suspense and romance is the best combination for a story and Suductive Surrender does not miss!!
Twists and turns make for surprises!
David McCallion does not miss as the narrator! it must be hard to change from Southern accent to Scottish accent but he doesn't miss a beat changing between the two. He brings the story to life and adds depth to the characters!
Loved this book.

Brodie is answering a summons to the King when he sees a young lady he thinks is going to jump from a castle window.

When he finds out she is under abuse from her father, he just can't get her out of his mind. The king says no, he can't help her, of course, Clan Grant hardheaded highlanders just don't listen.

Will Celestina be rescued or will she go to an equally abusive husband??

Great addition to the series!

Antony Ferguson does a great job narrating the story.

Seasons of Fortitude Series has just gotten better! Winter's story is another wonderful story about the sisters of the Kings bastards series.

Winter likes the forge and when she gets the chance to work with Damascus steel, nothing is going to keep her from working with it. Not even Martin de Grey.

Breena and Quades story is exciting. It has suspense, sexual tension, anger and laughter.

Breena is kidnapped because her reputation as a healer has spread around the highlands and Quade needs her healing skills and his brother, Logan doesn't think he has time to take the long way around by getting her brother's permission to take her.
Join their travels and see why the Clan Grant series is so awesome! Antony Ferguson has the most yummy Scottish accent and he is a wonderful narrator.
