Publisher's Summary

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn-and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons-and embrace a love that means more than revenge or land.

    "Was not captured till the middle of the book."

    Never read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Bed with a Highlander?

    Uncle to the rescue


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator has more of a spanish accent rather than a scott, it took several hours to get use to it


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A good read, though I have read better Hilander books.

    "What a fun story!"

    I was a little put off by the cover art, which was so explicit and not very accurate. The hero, Ewan, was described as having long hair, but I guess that I am nit-picking. Anyway, this is the story of Mairin Stewart, illegitimate daughter of the recently deceased king of Scotland. Once she marries and produces a child, she will come into her inheritance, a strategic plot of land which is desired by many of the local lairds. The story starts with her being kidnapped by Duncan Cameron, one of these lairds, who plans to force her into marriage. She resists (of course!) and while being spirited back to his keep, she encounters a lost child, young Crispin McCabe, who wandered away from his clan's keep and ended up being kidnapped, as well. She take him under her protection, escapes, and ends up back on the McCabe lands. She meets up with Crispin's father, the widowed Ewan McCabe and sparks fly. This was a fun story, with lots of plot twists, and lots of steamy parts, too. Still, the story held up and it did not feel like a series of sex scenes. I came to really care about the characters and wanted to know more about them. So glad that this is the first of a trilogy!

    Story
    "A little of a snooze fest for me"

    Good narration, semi-steamy love scenes, sub-par story line. I've enjoyed Maya Banks' books but this one took almost the entire story before I began to have a small surge of interest. I bought the whole series on a sale several months ago, so hopefully the other books get better. I love a male lead that has a little dominant streak, but I think I just wasn't in the mood for some of the blatant sexism...although accurate for a historical piece I suppose...it grated on my nerves a bit. For now, I'll probably stick with my paranormal romance obsession and contemporary romances!

    "Well balanced"

    Really liked this story. Had the right balance of adventure, heat and spunk. The heroin was no helpless damsel and the story was good. Characters were likable. This was my first book by this author. Will definitely read more.

    Kirsten Potter does a great job with the narration of this book, I hope she will do all of them.

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    "My Favorite Series Yet"
    What did you love best about In Bed with a Highlander?

    The story is so well developed and the characters are great. I've never been a fan of this type of book, but its become a favorite that I listen to over and over. I couldn't wait until for the next book and then the next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between the main characters.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Just enough so that you care about the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Nothing. I really enjoyed her.

    Story
    "OMG! I need so much more of the McCabe Clan"
    Where does In Bed with a Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The absolute BEST EVER! I want more Highlander romance after this trilogy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them were my favorites - I love how each new book story line flowed into the other's and kept all the characters involved even though a new story was unfolding.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Exceptional!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Passionate and Sexy!

    "Arresting Chemistry"

    As a lover of Highlander stories (especially those by Paula Quinn & Karen Marie Moning), "In Bed..." seemed like a good buy. Rocking installment. The reader is hooked right from the start. Yes, as another pointed out, there is some similarity to "Ravished by a Highlander" but "In Bed..." has much original material not to mention well described intimacy. Though I want a great story, I equally crave sexual chemistry and romance between characters. Banks doesn't disappoint.

    Having enjoyed Kirsten Potter's narrations in the past, her interpretation in this story is equally wonderful. Consumed the story in one day! Not a waste of time or money.

    "Enjoyed the story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It is a typical "Highlander Romance", a subject I enjoy. So if you like historical romance with a good story it's a good bet you will like this book. The only thing I don't love about the romance genre on tape are the sex scenes, it often times sounds ridiculous. This wasn't so bad as some others I've listened to however.


    Would you recommend In Bed with a Highlander to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only if they like romance.


    What aspect of Kirsten Potter’s performance would you have changed?

    I thought she did a great job with her voice and the different characters.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Two narrators one for the female and one for the male voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased all three of the books in this series when Audible had a sale so I only paid
    $4.95 for each. It may be why I liked the books, they were a good listen at a great price.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I wanted to hear Scottish accents and sex so I decided to try this out. I technically got what I was looking for, but it didn't satisfy me. I think if I were into highlander romances more, or if I were less into paranormal romance this would have been cool, but it didn't scratch my itch like I wanted it to. It wasn't bad, just totally not what gets me going.
