Word in the Royal Court has spread that the wild Scottish borders are too unruly. Upon the King's command, John Brunson must return home. Once part of a powerful border clan, John has not set eyes on the Brunson stone tower in years. With failure never an option, he must persuade his family to honor the king's call for peace.
To succeed, John knows winning over Cate Gilnock, the daughter of an allied family, holds the key. But this intriguing beauty is beyond the powers of flattery and seduction. Instead, the painful vulnerability hidden behind her spirited eyes calls out to John as he is inexorably drawn back into the warrior Brunson clan.
I read to escape and enjoy. The entire book evolved around rape of character and vengence/recovery. Serious important subject. But not the escape from my world I was looking for.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narrator was HORRIBLE. It wasn't bad enough that the story was intense, but the overdramatization just ruined the whole experience.
How could the performance have been better?
Read the dang story before you try to narrate it.
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't have wasted the credit if I had known she ruined a perfectly good story.
