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.

    "Bought this on sale because I love Maya Banks"
    What did you love best about In Bed with a Highlander?

    Much to my surprise, I loved this series.


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

    Maron's wedding night...if you could call it a 'night'. :)


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

    Only in this series but I look forward to anything she performs. She is exceptional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed Marion and her quest to please her man. This is an excellent start to the series.

    "blah"

    Because I listened to the Outlander series (my first exposure to both historical fiction and romance) I assumed this would somehow equal Outlander in complexity and storytelling. The story was OK but formulaic. It was painful to listen to all the cliches about bodice ripping and sheaths and manhoods. The plot twists seemed thin and implausible. Based on the reviews, many many people like this book, so I guess it is a matter of taste. I would not buy other books in the series.

    "So good I stayed up half the night....."
    What made the experience of listening to In Bed with a Highlander the most enjoyable?

    The narration brought the characters to life, and I couldn't stop listening to the great story. I enjoyed all the characters in the story. I love that the series will continue.


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

    Kirsten is a wonderful narrator. I hope the next book in the series is also read by her.

    Story
    "Lost potential!,"
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Kirsten Potter?

    Yes, I am going to listen to the next two books in this series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story started off very strong with a great story line and then slagged in the middle. It finally picked up again at the end. I thought there could have been more conflict between the clans which would have made the book more exciting.


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

    I've never listen to any other books narrated by Kirsten. I think she does a fine job and I'll listen to other books narrated by her.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book had great potential with its strong start, but it seriously lagged in the middle. I thought it would have been better if the conflict would have stayed with Marin and not moved to Ewan being the target, but It's a good steamy romance with very like able characters. The plot is also good and well thought out. I just think more could have been done to make the story a little more exciting.

    "Good historical romance novel"

    Great historical series. I love the McCabe brother and how each charter stands out. In book one the story focuses how Ewan the eldest McCabe brother falls in love wit and Mairin.

    The narrator did an awesome job.

    Casual reader with a vivid imagination. I like authors like Anne Rice, Stephen King, Dean Kootz, Tom Clancy, etc.

    Story
    "I want a Highlander!!"
    If you could sum up In Bed with a Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Seductive, Enveloping


    What other book might you compare In Bed with a Highlander to and why?

    I don't think I could compare it to another book. I dare say that this is the first book, besides my normal authors, that I felt was a real page turner. I loved it on its on, but if I HAD to compare it to another book, despite being two completely different schools of writing, I would have to say the Sleeping Beauty series.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    I loved all the characters she played. Ms. Potter grabbed you with her Scottish accent, and made you feel like you were right there with them. I loved Calen, he is exactly what I would think a Highlander would be.


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

    To get his revenge, he must steal her heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I am in love with the series so far. I love the writing, the performer, Ms. Potter, and the entire book. I am eagerly awaiting more. I <3 Highlanders.

    "Love Me Some Highlanders!"

    I don't know what is it about Scottish accents, but it gets me tingling all over when I hear it and then I imagine someone like Channing Tatum as Ewan. Nice! This is a great love story. Inoccent girl who secretly has a huge dowry meets strong Laird Highlander. His brut personality scares her but she refuses to submit to his demands. She has a mind of her own and stands up to what she believes in even though it's a male dominated environment and her word doesn't go too far. With their strong personalities colliding at every turn, it's surprising to see that they come together with a understanding of love and trust. Great story! Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    ok story, but the author couldn't seem to find any word for crazy besides daft, which made me daft.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Maya Banks? Why or why not?

    not as an audio
