Publisher's Summary

Romantic Times Career Achievement Award-winner Bertrice Small continues her sumptuous Border Chronicles series with Bond of Passion. Set in 16th-century Scotland, this breathtaking tale follows Angus Ferguson, Earl of Duin, as he reluctantly agrees to take a wife in exchange for some much-coveted land. Although the plain-faced Annabella Baird may not be the lass he had in mind, passion soon ignites between them.

Best of the Series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was fantastic listen. The story takes place during the up in Scotland at the time of Mary Stewart Reign. The story flowed, the characters were very real, the narration superb.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Angus, the "most handsome man in Scotland" was noble, honest and quite "randy". He stays away from politics, to protect his small can.

His "plain wife" Anabella, who he married to obtain land her father owned. She is a a strong woman who does her duty, but with opinions of her own.

What about Jill Tanner’s performance did you like?

She was great, all the characters were great, her timing was amazing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved this book. IMO it's the best of the series. The other heros of the Border series, were a bit arrogant, and some did stray from there "loves", some I would also consider borderline abusive... This book did not have that feel, which was a great change.

Any additional comments?

The book can stand alone. you don't have to read the others.
Well worth the credit.

Not her best

I love Small but this one fell very flat for me. No conflict betweedn the two leads, heavy political intrigue, and the childeren disappeared into the background after their birth. I actually forgot their names and ages by the end.
