Publisher's Summary

Wrongfully accused of murder and left to die in a hellish Highland dungeon, Ana Bisset has lost all hope of freedom. But the beautiful healer's luck takes an unexpected turn when a hooded stranger appears as her rescuer. After a harrowing escape, Ana settles alone in a quiet village where no one knows her past or her reputation. The last thing she ever expects is to meet her mysterious savior again. Niall MacCurran is no hero but a warrior on a dangerous mission to expose a threat to the realm. After his decision to free Ana, he now realizes that it is he who needs her help - willing or no - to advance his quest. But his growing feelings for the delicate yet resilient beauty soon jeopardize their safety - and not even Ana's healing gifts may be enough to protect their love or their lives.

I was in the mood for Kirsten Potter!

Highland romance + Kirsten Potter = excellence. The story was well written and authentic but.....it is a trilogy so there are a lot of mysteries to be solved. I will not listen to a Highland romance story without Kirsten Potter narrating, she is that good.

Awful...worst romance in a long time

Would you try another book from Rowan Keats and/or Kirsten Potter?

3 stories badly put together and non of them finished. The story of Aiden, I don't even know why the author bothered to put him in as a main character. The story of Neil and Anna was a little better. At least they had an ending. The story of the Pict and the missing necklace was the worst, no beginning or ending. We still don't know who ordered the black guard who stole the necklace or if the return of the necklace got Aiden back his lands. Horrible editing and the writing was juvenile and the characters lacked intelligence. Horrible waste of money.

What was most disappointing about Rowan Keats’s story?

Horrible editing and the writing was juvenile and the characters lacked intelligence. Horrible waste of money.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Characters were not very smart.

What character would you cut from Taming a Wild Scot?

Aiden.

Nice..

Any additional comments?

A good read but what an abrupt ending. And you really do have to read the next book if you want to know what's going to happen. However, I just may cheat and go to the end of the next book, When the Laird Takes a Lady, which I bought as soon as I finished this one, and if there's really no ending I won't bother to read the book in it's entirity. I don't mind a trilogy, if all the books are available, but I won't wait for months for a book to become available to readers. The third book to this series won't be out until December and I refuse to wait that long to read a third book.
Over all, I really enjoyed this book. I really liked Niall and Ana. I really, really, couldn't stand Friar Colban. That was why I only gave it 4 stars. There was just too much about that religious fanatic and religion itself, and Bebinn was almost as bad.
There was some good sexual tension in this book and the sex was great so this book is NOT for Christian readers.

As to the narrator: Kirsten Potter.. 'nuff said..

Great story

What did you like about this audiobook?

I like the fact that it was written by a male so it had a little more action in it apart from the woman drooling all over the bloke but it was great having a female narrator.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Yes. I like history too so learning about the life and times of historical societys is very interesting.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Nothing. Very enjoyable to listen too campared to some narrators.

Do you have any additional comments?

A good light hearted romantic read that provides a great escape. :-)

Meh...

If it wasn't for Kirsten Potter I would not have finished this book. I was having a hard time keeping up with the backstory but the book as a whole was an easy read.

Love/Mystery

I loved the book and looked forward to listening more. I am not used to reading/listening to mystery love stories and now I do. I was hesitant at first because I of the way Neal spoke to Anna. I don't want to listen to a story with a man who was dominatrix like.

I loved Anna's strong independent voice when she spoke back to Neal.

I am not into listening to Irish accents and yet this story I began to get use to it and now I know I can enjoy it.

I would recommend this book and the narrator was excellent!

Scottish Healer

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This was the first book I've read about a Scottish healer (Ana) and that was very interesting. I would not change a thing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was very satisfactory to me and I hope there is a sequel.

What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

Kristen Potter's performance was very good. Her accent and inflections were excellent.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A bit more interaction between Ana and Niall, other than the romance, would have made the characters more vivid.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to all historical romance readers.
