After years of fighting abroad, Ian MacDonald comes home to find his clan in peril. To save his kin, he must right the wrongs from his past... and claim the bride he's long resisted. As a young lass, Sìleas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armor. Five years later, Sìleas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife. Now this devilishly handsome Highlander is finally falling in love. He wants Sìleas - and he won't take no for an answer....

Any additional comments?

This was my first audio book and my first Margaret Mallory novel. I am now hooked on both!

The story was exciting and thrilling (I love a good mystery!) I loved Ian and Sileas as well as the side characters. I was glad that Ian wasn't the dark, brooding hero we often run into. He was funny as well as sexy, although a bit stubborn as most good heroes are. And Sileas was perfect! Not a simpering fool with a 'woe is me' attitude. I liked that.

Derek did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, with enough distinction between the voices that it was very easy to tell who was who.

I'm definitely looking forward to more audio books and listening or reading the rest of this series.
