Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens returns to rugged Scotland with a dramatic tale of passionate desire, unwavering devotion, and a match too powerful to deny.

Restless and impatient, Marcus Cynster waits for fate to come calling. He knows his destiny lies in the lands surrounding his family home, but what will his future be, and with whom will he share it? Of one fact he feels certain: His fated bride will not be Niniver Carrick. His elusive neighbor attracts him mightily, yet he feels compelled to protect her - even from himself. Fate, he's sure, would never be so kind as to decree that Niniver should be his. The best he can do for them both is to avoid her.

Niniver has vowed to return her clan to prosperity. The epitome of fragile femininity, her delicate and ethereal exterior cloaks a stubborn will and an unflinching devotion to the people in her care. She accepts that she cannot risk marrying and losing her grip on the clan's reins to an inevitably controlling husband. Unfortunately many local men see her as their opportunity. Soon she's forced to seek help to get rid of her unwelcome suitors. Powerful and dangerous, Marcus Cynster is perfect for the task. Suppressing her wariness over tangling with a gentleman who excites her passions, she appeals to him for assistance with her peculiar problem.

Although at first he resists, Marcus discovers that, contrary to his expectations, his fated role is to stand by Niniver's side and, ultimately, to claim her hand. Yet in order to convince her to be his bride, they must plunge headlong into a journey full of challenges, unforeseen dangers, passion, and yearning, until Niniver grasps the essential truth - that she is indeed a match for Marcus Cynster.

Pretty good

This series hasn't died out yet. Most of the charm of the first Cynster novels is still active in Laurens 23rd book. While I miss Simon Prebble narrating because he was incredible, Matthew Brehner does a very good job too. Brehner has a voice that to me seems to fit the authors style and the era she writes about.

Later Cynster novels not on equal level as earlier stories.

For those individuals familiar with the plots and character development in the earlier Cynster novels, you might find yourself feeling a little let down.

Would be better as a short story

I kept waiting for something , anything, to happen. It moves very slowly. I've pretty much read or listened to every Cynster story Ms. Laurens has written. They're getting to be interchangeable.
Not bad, just so very, very predictable.

Lame

Ms Lauren's mailed this one in. Narrator tried valiantly to make something of it but it's just not there. No story to speak of, pathetic villain, H & h both had no substance. Maybe this series has run its course. This was a waste of a credit and a serious waste of time. I'm embarrassed I finished it.

Too long!!!!!

It was too long, if you are Stephanie Lauren's fan this one fell short of its mark I own almost all her book from the Cynster's {audio books that is ) and this one with narrator with no infliction on his voice and the material he had to wok with was not her greatest story and I love all her strikes until now, this book did not have enough suspense or maybe it was also the way it was delivered please pretty please bring Simon Prebble back I hope her next story is better and by the way Marcu's mom name is not Catrina it never was until this narrator came in the scene her name is Catriona not Catrina at least get the name right!, I will wait for her next book I never had giving her this low of a rating thank you audible.
