Publisher's Summary

Scottish romance doesn't get much steamier - or more dangerous - than a spy hunting her quarry and losing her heart to him instead. To pay a seemingly impossible debt, Mariel Brandon has become a spy for Aaron, one of England's deadliest minds. Aaron's latest mission for the sharp-witted and daring Mariel is to find two people in a heavily fortified castle on the Isle of Skye, a castle headed by the clan MacDonald and the powerful Kieran. Mariel is to seduce Kieran and get him to take her to Skye. If she succeeds, Aaron promises to let Mariel's young brother go and to free both of them from their debt. If she fails, her brother will die. What she doesn't count on is craving Kieran MacDonald almost immediately upon meeting him. Now Mariel must keep a secret from Kieran - one that could get them both killed - as she tries to form a plan that will save her brother, get her out from under Aaron's thumb once and for all, and keep her in Kieran's strong arms forever.

Deception Of a Highlander

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

Yes! To a Historical fan! Nice cloak and dagger story.

What did you like best about this story?

The ending was my favorite.

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

The story of Mariel's life really makes you feel for her. And uncovering each detail of what makes her tick. What a sad time for her and of course this was common in those time.

Any additional comments?

Wonderful story-line and plot. I liked how the story unfolded near the end and so many things were brought to light.

I Love a Highlander

Deception, deception, deception is the game, but Mariel and Kieran cannot deny their attraction. This book is well written. Mariel's background is surprising and to me that's what makes this book so interesting.

Narrator held the story back

The plot seemed good albeit somewhat implausible. The heroes “almost giving in grew tedious. But the narrator’s voice and his Scottish accent were hard to get past to truly enjoy the storyline.

Not a bad book but...
