This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

Fleeing with only her bow, horse, enormous pet wolf, and the cryptic clues hidden in her mother's medicine journal, healer Meg Boswell gallops north towards freedom, running from the man who falsely accused her mother of witchcraft. Cursed with magical healing abilities, Meg knows that if she's captured, she will die like her mother-atop a blazing witch's pyre.

Winter winds rip across the Highlands, pressing Chief Caden Macbain forward in his desperate plan to save his clan. He's not above using an innocent woman to bargain for peace if it keeps his clan from starving. But Meg isn't who Caden thinks she is, and when she kills a man to save the clan, he must choose between duty and her life. For although he captured her to force a peace, Meg's strength and courage have captured Caden's heart.

Lovely Highland Adventure

This book is a well written Highland Adventure! It is a heartfelt story with interesting and well developed characters. From the start I was transferred into the world of Meg and Caden. With all the twists and turns I had trouble putting it down.

I really didn’t have an issue with the narrator. I am of Scottish decent and I have relatives who were born in Scotland. I know first hand how a Scottish accent should sound and this narrator didn’t do a bad job. No, it wasn't perfect....but it wasn't horrible either. Everyone has their preferences of course but I got through the book without feeling “verbally tortured” at all.

I will definitely listen to the next book.

People are too hard on the narrator...

Would you listen to Captured Heart again? Why?

Yes, it had a good story. Some highland romances make the female protagonist too naive. This book had a good balance.

Any additional comments?

I think that the people complaining about the narrator were too harsh. Yes, I've heard better narration for highlander men, however she didn't make the book unbearable to listen to. Her male voices improved as the book progressed, with a few slip-ups along the way. I've listened to many books narrated by women that I couldn't finish. Male narrators are my preference, but I still would listen to more books in this series if they kept this narrator.

Magical family bonds and a sweet romance

This was a great story....even though it was a great HEA....it had a compelling storyline that made me care about most of the characters in the book....even many secondary characters. I highly recommend this book...great story....plot twists....sexy highlanders....sweet romance.....family bonds......magic (just a little). Definitely credit worthy......but I was lucky to find it in a special 3 for 2 sale.

Fantastic!

The story just Captures your Heart at every turn. I was pleasantly surprised! At times it was difficult to follow due to the narrator, nevertheless the story made me want to listen more intently on each change of events that unfolds within its chapters.

Could have been great...

Everything about this book should have been great. The general plot was good, the execution however, was really very bad. I am sure the narration didn’t help with the missing and poorly executed story. While I though Michelle Ford did an ok job on the women’s voices, I could barely tell the difference between the women’s and men’s parts other than a slight Scottish lilt.

Overall I would say, don’t waist your time or credit. I couldn’t even bring myself to finish the book.

Great story!!!

Loved this book. it made me and it made me cry. I loved that Meg was a strong woman, but not overbearing. Loved the narrator, she has such a soothing voice.

Oh dear

Any additional comments?

I thought the reviews on audible.com must have been a bit harsh... they were not. This Michelle Ford is the reader otherwise known as Carolyn Morris. I have listened to quite a few books read by Carolyn Morris, and while her male voices are not really her strong point, they don't detract from the enjoyment of the book. I can totally understand why she would record this book under a different name. The result of her attempting male Scottish voices is frankly horrible. Strangely high-pitched and whiny, and she has difficulty trying to maintain the accent. There are few books that I deem unlistenable, but I'm afraid this is one of them. The story seems promising enough, but there is no way I'd be able to concentrate on it. Return!
