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.

Great story, pretty good narrator

I really enjoyed this highlander story. My only real issue was the narrator would switch between a scottish burr and her normal american accent. When Rosalyn Landor (my favorite narrator) reads, she stays in the same dialect. I would have preferred the narrator to pick one and stick with it. But overall, she did well.

Make the cover match the story!

If you could sum up In Bed with a Highlander in three words, what would they be?

easy to follow

What three words best describe Kirsten Potter’s performance?

I felt she does a good job, however it sounds like some of the people in the story come from Transavania not Scottland.

I didn't know Scotland was in Transylvania

Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Kirsten Potter?

Probably with a different narrator

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Couldn't get that far

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The Scott accents were weird and sounded more like Dracula than Scottish. The regular bathroom sounded to sleepy and monotone

What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

Didn't get that far

So glad there are two more books in this series!

Any additional comments?

This is the first book I've listened to by Maya Banks. I found myself picking up my iPod every time I had a spare moment, even if it was just for five minutes. The story was good, grabbed me at the first page, and the characters likable. Ms Banks did a wonderful job with her secondary characters, I am hoping they get a grand story of their own.

For now, I am now off to buy the other two books in this series.

Tired, derivative story. Dreadful narration.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Original plot and characters. A storyline that is not contrived.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I listened to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. It had a very good balance of an original story and interesting characters. Howe has a nice writing style and Kellgren did a fine job as the narrator. There was even romance - one I liked.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was not up to the task of keeping in character. One minute she had a faux Scottish accent, the next a bland American one.

What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

The question is which one to keep in? I cannot think of any except for a secondary child character.

Any additional comments?

I rarely buy romances. I decided to try this one because it was on sale and had so many 5 star reviews. Why anyone would give this a 5 stars is beyond me.

  • Story

Young woman finds her place in the world.

Story starts out fairly violent and cruises for a while working on the relationship of the heroine (and make no mistake, she is a heroine, not a damsel in distress) with her new husband and new clan. The characters in the story were well done. The narration really drew me into the story and made it real. Kristen Potter had great accents for the characters and she did a very good job with male voices. The end of the story ends with some suspense and action that was fine, but sort of gilding the lily on this great listen.

Not bad

This was an okay listen. When I was done I didn't have any overwhelming feelings in either direction- love or hate. I think what holds this book above water is the narration. The story line is decent, but predictable. I found myself giving a half hearted cheer in certain parts of the book...

not the best...but not the worst...

What did you like best about In Bed with a Highlander? What did you like least?

It took a while for me to even care about the heroine or the hero.... so it dragged until the second half when the story line picked up.. I did enjoy it and the second book is proving to be worth it!

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

It's ok.. she moves pretty fast though... but her accent in genuine and easy to listen to

Did In Bed with a Highlander inspire you to do anything?

LOL!

If you could sum up In Bed with a Highlander in three words, what would they be?

FUN SEXY ROMANCE

Who was your favorite character and why?

THE HIGHLANDER WAS FERCE YET SOOOO LOVING

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

THE FEELING SHE GAVE EACH CHARACTER WAS SO VERY ON POINT I COULD JUST LAY BACK AND FEEL THE STORY AS IF I WAS THERE WITH THEM.

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

YES YES YES

A trilogy I listened to in a weekend.

Would you consider the audio edition of In Bed with a Highlander to be better than the print version?

I have not read the printed version..I am now an audible addict with a sackful of books in my closet.

What did you like best about this story?

Love story, sexy with the usual but good ending.

What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the narration, her characters were distinct and natural, even the men.

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

I listened to the entire trilogy in a weekend!

Any additional comments?

Listen in order..they are all a bit unique but follow all the characters along.
