Action from the very beginning and you have Alex and Margaret (Meg) who are on a mission of their own. They will not allow anyone to get in their way, not even themselves. Once again deceit and sexual attraction comes into play. It has a typical ending, but the ride to that end is enjoyable.

Rory MacLeod is a bold and powerful Highland Chief with only one allegiance-to his clan. He vows revenge against the rival MacDonald clan, though duty demands a handfast marriage to Isabel MacDonald-a bride he does not want and has no intention of keeping. But Rory couldn't have anticipated the captivating woman who challenges his steely control and unleashes the untamed passion simmering beneath his fierce exterior.

Everyone has their reasons for doing the things they do. Rory and especially Isabel are no exception. The story is pretty predictable but a nice listen. If you like Highlander stories with a little action, deceit and love making, you will enjoy this one. I am looking forward to the next installment.

Rebecca Connolly is a new author for me and this book could be for young teens on up. The subject matter was interesting and how it played out, however, it didn't have to be 8+ hours for what it covered.

Jessica Elisa Boyd does not have the right voice for men. In some areas the men's voices were softer than the women.

When Raelynd Schellden and her sister are caught in the stables with the notorious McTiernay twins, her father sees not scandal, but opportunity. The future of his clan is uncertain, and a double engagement - even under false pretenses - will lend security to his people and protect his beloved daughters from power-mad fools. But Raelynd's designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother, Crevan, a man born to lead.

Meriel Schellden knows that marrying Craig McTiernay will strengthen the ties between their clans. She insists she is motivated by duty and responsibility, nothing more. But when a mere formality becomes a far from platonic kiss, Meriel must question where her true intentions lie. Though Meriel entices him far more than she realizes, Craig's commitments have always kept his passions restrained. But no sense of duty to his clan can make Craig forget the way Meriel's touch left him teased, tantalized, and desperate for more.

This book was a little slow, but since I listened to all the preceding books, I didn't want to miss out on what would happen to Meriel and Craig. The body of the book is no mystery, "get the man by making him jealous." However, the rest of the book is interesting because it shows what can happen after marriage.

Seven McTiernay brothers, each a Highlander born to protect Scotland and her people, warriors known for their quick wits and quicker broadswords. The third brother, Cole, stared death in the face when he was only a boy... Now Cole McTiernay is a man. And though he resists them in every way, he has responsibilities. The wild northern Highlands need a laird who can guide them to peace. Cole has the army strong enough to accomplish this task. What he doesn't have is the desire to be a leader among men.

Once again you have a woman with a strong will, spunk and determination, but not a feminine bone in her body. I sympathized the position her father put her in and you could feel her turmoil. This book holds your attention in the way it is developed. The relationship between Makenna and Colin is not boring. You get it all in this romance novel.

This is a new author for me. Lady Maybe was a little tame for my taste because I like action. But then, that's why I chose this book. I wanted a change. I was not disappointed. The characters are strong and the story takes you on a ride. You want to know what happens to Hannah. This is a good listen.
