Publisher's Summary

Powerful and dangerous Highlander Dair Sinclair was once the favored son of his clan, the Sinclairs of Carraig Brigh. With Dair at the helm, Sinclair ships circled the globe bringing home incredible fortune - until one deadly mission when Dair is captured, tortured, and unable to save his young cousin. He returns home breaking under the weight of his guilt and becomes known as the Madman of Carraig Brigh.

When a pagan healer predicts that only a virgin bride can heal his son's body and mind, Dair's father sets off to find the perfect wife for his son. At the castle of the fearsome McLeods, he meets lovely and kind Fia MacLeod.

Although Dair does his best to frighten Fia, she sees the man underneath the damage and uses her charm and special gifts to heal his mind and heart. Will Dair let Fia love him, or is he cursed with madness forever?

A great read all around.

I enjoyed the book very much. The narrator spoke quite well and even used some Gaelic words with a Scottish brogue. I recommend this novel whole heartily.

Great book

I loved it! Performance was pretty good too. The only thing I'd change is I wish there had also been a man to do the men's voices as it's hard to listen to a woman doing men's voices. It was done pretty well though

rather disappointed

I found this one pretty disappointing definitely not worth the credit I think the actual story may have been good but the narration totally bombed it...i struggled through listening and at times found myself tuning it out which I found rather sad maybe with a better narrator this book would be worth it Kirsten potter or Mary Jane wells hell even Tim Campbell could make this infinitely better

Good book

This was a good book but I didn't love it. My only issue was that I really didn't feel the love between the H&h. Felt like there was something missing. The narrator was pretty good. No complaints. I would definitely listen to another book by her.

Fairytale

This was a very good story, a fun twist on an old story. I really enjoyed it. And the narrator as always was superb!

Not exactly the storyline of Beauty and the beast

, but it was a bonny lass and her fierce highland laird. This was a cute story that had a predictable but acceptably-woven mystery and a heroine who tries to fight for her man, though he's a man who is broken by a terrible tragedy (for which he doesn't get revenge(at least, he doesn't, himself). Some parts made me want to fast forward, and I did, because I'd figured out the snake and how trickery could have befallen the clan. It got annoying when the characters could not figure it out; call it dramatic irony that was too dragged out. However, this was a good read if you are looking to ride a highlander happy cloud for some hours. The narrator was ok,

Had potential, but it’s not for me

The story started off great, but it wasn’t really a beauty andthebeast retelling. Also,thesex scenes were way too explicit. I thought the ending was too drawn out and anticlimactic .

Love it!

This is by far my most favorite book. I can't get enough of Thea and Dare! and the narrator is well spoken with a slight accent that puts right into the story. I've listened to this book several times
