Publisher's Summary

Sir Payton Murray's reputation as a lover is rivalled only by his prowess with the sword, yet it is the latter gift that has captured the interest of Kirstie MacLye. Fleeing a murderous husband who left her for dead, she vows to expose the man for the vile scoundrel that he is. She also knows it will take planning, cunning, and the help of a brave, arrogant, and willing champion. Kirstie only prays that Sir Payton will accept her challenge.

Though he risks the ire of his own clan and hers, Payton cannot ignore Kirstie's desperate plea or her captivating beauty. For he knows that nothing will deter the spirited lass from bringing an evil man to justice, even if she must do it alone. Joining her on this crusade, he embarks upon a dangerous quest against a powerful enemy only too eager to destroy them both.

Critic Reviews

"One of Hannah Howell's best books in recent years, Highland Angel touched me deeply. The heavy overtones of abuse compel you to root for the hero and heroine because you are intensely involved in the story. I truly love this book, and it is definitely going on my keeper shelf." (RT Book Reviews)

Highlander To The Rescue!

If you've listened and enjoyed the previous books in this series I think you will enjoy Highland Angel too.

This is the story of Sir Payton Murray who we know from previous books is great with a sword and that women find him "the bonniest". This adventurous tale is the love story of Payton and Kirstie. Kirstie is a spunky woman who needs Peyton's assistance regarding the child abuse issues within her clan. As this captivating good verses evil story evolves there is sadness, heartbreak, humor, danger and romance. Angela Dawe's narration made this book even more enjoyable.

I like the way Hannah Howell incorporates family crisis issues (child abuse) in her books. It really adds acuity to the novel which makes story seem more clear or genuine. Because of the storyline, this isn't your average Highland adventure but I don't think you will be disappointed.;-}

Disturbing story line

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I love Hannah Howell's book and am currently enjoying the Murray Family Series. However I didn't enjoy the subject matter of this book. It is based on very young boys being molested and Payton & Kirstie rescuing the boys. If you can get beyond the subject matter there is the beautiful part of a strong highland man honoring these children and falling in love with Kirstie.

If you’ve listened to books by Hannah Howell before, how does this one compare?

It's simply a comes down to a strong subject matter I did not enjoy. It is still well written and still demonstrates the power of love.

Any additional comments?

It isn't about cutting scenes or making any changes. It's based on a man molesting little boys and a woman seeking Payton Murray to help her save the children.

Highland Angel

Good story, good narration. The twist of saving children of the street was interesting, not my favorite but interesting enough to make it a good read.
