Publisher's Summary

An unclaimed land in the Scottish isles is ruled by the male and female victors in a series of war games every five years. Named Chief and Lady of the land, they rule the vast holding and protect the people by divine right until the next game begins. After her brother's death, Ceana is named laird. The only way for her clan to survive the ravages of the Highlands is to join in the war games. Bastard son of a powerful earl, Macrath is placed in the games by his vengeful stepmother. He must survive for the ultimate retribution. Ceana can't stand the arrogant Highlander who seems to be following her, and yet she can't seem to walk away. Macrath wants nothing more than to be rid of the troublesome need to protect the warrior lass. What starts out as a race to survive turns into passion to endure together.

Contains mature themes.

Great book!

I really enjoyed this book. I wasn’t sure I would when reading the description, but it turned out to be addicting and fun. The Romance package has this books steaminess rated as “hot damn”, but I am not sure I can agree. I find it barely sizzling. Either way, it’s a great adventure!

Well written

I enjoyed the book very much. I cried, laughed, and rejoiced along with the characters! Can’t wait to read the other books from the author!

Grand Adventure

I totally did know if I would enjoy this audiobook by just looking at the description. I was greatly surprised by the fast paced, intricate story line and depth of characterization. Antony Ferguson performs a wonderful reading as usual.

War games...!?

Start to finish this is the tale of a to the death competition where only one male and one female survive. It's brutal and gruesome and between each of the five "games" there is rape, abuse, brutality, deceit, cruelty and a love story. This story appears to end quickly yet there are so many unfulfilled questions and plot details that it is obvious this one pairs romance will spread over several books.
I often lose interest in a book if I wander away from it for any length of time.... in an audio book that maybe a hour.... yet for some reason even knowing where it had to go and what had to happen, thus no surprises, I still was compelled to finish. I have yet to decide if I want to go on to the next book in the series. I might.

Anthony Ferguson is always good!

The sex is steamy... but violence is more prevalent.

Creditworthy? If it's your kind of story it is very well done, so yes. But probably not for everyone.

Very Depressing Book

This book is very dark and if you can deal with it, okay. I would listen, then I didn't want to listen, but I wanted to find out what happened to Ceana and Macrath. I must say, I didn't enjoy the book, I was more stunned than anything else. Then I found out that it is a continuation and that you need to read book 2 and 3 to find out what really happens to them. I gave this book a one star because of the subject matter, other than that, it is well written.

Hunger games erotica

It's obvious what will happen in the book from the start, even when you strive and hope for a twist in the story it is dully strung it along the road on which it started. Everything boringly predictable.

SO SO SO...DARK AND DEPRESSING

I'm almost finished with this listen, however, I think I will be in bed under the covers for at least a week suffering from depression!! The story was well written, well narrated and totally dark. There has not been one happy moment in this story starting with the first word spoken. Come on...this is supposed to be a "R-O-M-A-N-C-E" story. Even the intimate moments are spoiled by something or other. Not my cup of tea...I like a little smile now and then with my men!! Would I recommend this book...only if you are abundantly happy and need to tone down to total depression mode!
