The year is 1568 and Mary, Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in Lochleven Castle. But Mary’s supporters, including noblewoman Heather Gordon, are planning a daring rescue. In order to gain entry to the castle, they need to help of one man - a resident of a small cottage in the frigid Highlands who just happens to resemble someone with access to Lochleven.

Heather travels to the cottage as a tutor, determined to train this man to act the part of a nobleman in order to make their scheme a success. But in the close quarters of the cottage there is more afoot than political rebellion. And Heather is soon in danger of losing her heart and her head!

Scottish Man In the Iron Mask

I purchased on the 50% sale as I love all Scottish reads by narrator Ms Dawe. She is tops with this accent and reads this authors work so verrrry well. As an avid fan of hers, over 100 reads, do not miss Hanna Howell Scottish series, top fave books 5,6,and 10. If you love mysteries see Marcia Clark series Samantha Brinkman. My top fave contemporary Julie Garwood Sweet Talk.

This is my 1st read from this author who is inspirational throughout this book. I was a bit surprised as this book is listed under Romance Historical and publisher did not note any Inspirational comments eg Lindsay McKenna , but did outline this story spot on. However, if you read Audibles short author bio, it outlines authors transition to this genre. Author has some excellent inspirational genre within this historical romance. This is a bit tricky, and author blended good old fashion Scottish history with a little bit of Alexander Dumas to tell a romance tale that touches your heart. If you have never been to the highlands or you want to revisit it, this author puts you right there in the Crofts or dank castles of its day.
Author or publisher chose the best narrator to tell this romance tale as Ms Dawe makes our hero so wonderful it can break your heart. Our heroine is strong and educated and will not be dragged through life by the ideals of others.
Note: I do use the 1.25x speed to match the adventure.
I hope my comments were helpful?
