Publisher's Summary

Magnus MacKay is the ultimate Highlander: Tough, proud, able to master any terrain, and to best his enemies. Called "the Saint" for his refusal to discuss women, as well as for his cool and steady leadership, Magnus hides a painful truth. It isn't virtue or piety that keeps him silent, but a wound of love and loss that cuts so deep he cannot bear to speak of it. But when the woman who refused him is betrothed to his friend and fellow Guardsman, Magnus is tested by love's battle cry.

A wild and innocent beauty, Helen chose family duty over her desire for Magnus. Now the anger in his eyes mirrors the tormented regret in her heart. But as deadly subterfuge stalks the King and his Guard, Helen vows to right her youthful mistakes with a woman's determined spirit. Still, Magnus harbors secrets and an iron will not to weaken to temptation - or heartache - again. But as danger looms, it's the kiss not of a saint, but of a sinner, that can save them.

Happy with this book!

Love these books!! She does a great job! Can't wait to start the next book. The narrator is good too.. I normally only like female narrators but he does an amazing job. Really pulls you in.

what a hero!<br />

one of my favorites of the Highland Guard series, This story stands out among the hottest! While at times our heroines tenacity in trying to recapture the relationship she had let go of previously tends towards self-humilation ... there are some moments of which are so amusing it makes frustration with her much easier to bear. The description of their trip through the Highlands also makes for a very enjoyable story overall!! The Saint and the Angel truly are memorable!!!

Each book of the Highland Guard is my favorite

What did you love best about The Saint?

I read the comments of other readers. I have to disagree! I LOVED this one! Romance is alive and well. Action! Passion! History! A must read!!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Saint?

When Helen went to Magnus' bedroom and climbed into his bed naked! She wanted Magnus to make love to her.

Which character – as performed by Antony Ferguson – was your favorite?

ALL OF THEM!

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

What made me want to cry was the love both Magnus and Helen had for each other. How hard it was to except love. When Magnus was waiting for Joanna.

Any additional comments?

Must read!

Just Okay.Not the best in the series.

For one thing I liked Robert McNab much better as the voice of the Highland Guard. The character Helen irritated me.She was too tedious for me. I am fascinated by Scottish history and novels that are historically accurate.
