Publisher's Summary

Bound by duty….

Colin MacGregor was born to fight - for his beliefs, his king, and his family’s honor. After years away from his beloved Scotland, he yearns to return to its lush, green hills, and he can... after he completes one final mission for the king. Sent to infiltrate a traitor’s home, Colin is determined to expose the treasonous plot and triumph on the battlefield - until he meets a sensual lass who tempts him toward other pursuits.

Betrayed by passion….

Lady Gillian Dearly is no stranger to temptation. Cast out of her family for bearing an illegitimate child, she’s now the ward of a barbarian conspiring against the king. Her only desire: freedom for her son and for herself at any cost, even if it means making a deal with the devil. Yet when a mysterious Highlander appears in their midst, his raw strength and smoldering gaze give her hope for a future beyond the castle walls - and promise a desire unlike any she’s ever known. Passion, however, comes at a price.

Paula Quinn is married to her childhood sweetheart. They have three wonderful children, a dog, and too many reptiles to count. She lives in New York City and is currently at work on her next novel. You can write to her at Paula@PaulaQuinn.com.

I want to go to Skye!!

Another great highlander romance by Paula Quinn with a fascinating plot that includes many historical references about the war between Catholics and Protestants. The romance develops slowly and it starts getting hot in the last two hours of listening but it is still pretty intense.

Narration: by now I love Carrington MacDuffie. She makes those sexy highlander sound delicious. And her portrayal of little Edmund was perfect! I'd definitely listen to more books by this author and/or narrator. Highly recommended!

HAS ANYBODY GOT A TIME MACHINE I CAN BORROW???

Give me a hunky handsome Highland Warrior from the 17th Century, clad him in a kilt (or even troos), give him a Quest, add some other great characters, throw in a love interest and I'm oh soooo happy for 10 hours.

This was the last in a great series (boo hooo) so suggestions Ms. Quinn - how about Children of the Forest, Glen, Mountains, Loch, Sea, Sky..... well anyway you get it PLEASE can we have some more.

This could be a stand alone listen (as could all in the series) but why deprive yourself, if you haven't already listened to book 1, start there sit back and enjoy.

Worth a credit? This series has been a 4 credit investment and I don't regret any - so that would be a YES.

Highland Romance Worth A Credit

I have listen to all the books in this series (The Children of the Mist Series) but this is my first purchase in the series from Audible. My only regret is that I did not purchase the first three in this series from Audible so that I could listen to the stories again and again. This 4th installment was a charming addition to the series. I was really rooting for the couple. The story line was interesting and held my attention. What else can I say, I love the romance aspect and I am going to purchase the first three in the series. I can't wait for book #5 to come out. WOW, I just love these Highlanders, it's like being transported back in time and what's not to love about a sexy Highlander. This particuar story really touched my heart becasue of the female character and her little boy. It's the dynamics between this woman, little boy and the Highlander that will really have you falling in love with this particular Highlander. I just love a good romance!!!!

Paula Quinn does it again!! Another Great Story!!

I can not say enough that I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! Each book can stand alone, but better all together. This story of Colin & Gillian is wonderful and even better than I expected.

I wish there were 20 MacGregor brothers!

This story line was great. Colin and Edmond interactions were so touching. It is definitely worth a credit. My only complaint was that there was no epilogue......I was hoping for a good After ....Happily Ever After! I will be actually reading the Novella, A Highlander for Christmas that features Finlay Grant since it is not available on Audible. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Children of the Mist series.

Conquered by a Highlander, Oh My!

Where does Conquered by a Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

I really like this series. Who does not like a Highlander Hunk!

What did you like best about this story?

Strugggle Colin went thru between love and country.

What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I think she does a great job with all the charactors.
