Publisher's Summary

Alec Bowie never wanted a wife. He never wanted a hearth and home. And he most assuredly never wanted to be chief of his clan. But much to his vexation, he finds himself in possession of all three. His desire for peace and to protect his clan are stronger than his desire to remain free and untethered. He agrees to the marriage in the hopes his wife will bed him only long enough get with child then leave him the bloody hell alone.

Leona MacDowall - or Leona "Odd Eyes", Leona the Witch, or Leona the Devil's Spawn depending on to whom you speak - is all too happy to volunteer to marry the Bowie Chief. Though the clan Bowie's reputation as murderers and thieves precedes them, she believes life with Alec more palatable than living the rest of her life untouched, unmarried, and under the hateful rule of her spiteful father.

But nothing turns out the way they expect. Alec doesn't know if he can keep to his original plan of leaving his wife alone after he gets her with child. Leona is beginning to suspect she might not get the happy home she's always wanted. And worst of all, someone's set on murdering Leona - and might just succeed before anyone's dreams can come true.

Excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The best part was narrator Brad Wills, fantastic character voices.

This Is Epic!

This is an Epic story! I repeat EPIC! Written from the heart, narration was done from the soul! This is an intense story that will take you on a lovely journey. It made me have every emotion! I cried and laughed out loud. Suzan Tisdale and Brad Wills is the perfect combination and they made my day! I wish I could give them a perfect ten. This is the best from them both.

excellent

After every book I listen or read from Suzan Tisdale I say the same, the best yet, but every time I am proven wrong because each book has its own appeal and stays in my heart for different reasons. This one is no different. I loved every minute of it, the characters, the story how it unfolded, the suspense of waiting to find out who is behind all the bad things happening around the Bowie keep and then the finding out who it actually was, I WAS stunned, then horrified by the madness of that person.
Leona and Alex's journey to HEA was not easy, but oh so worth it.
I laughed out loud a few times at the banter between characters. At the warriors' funeral, the sword ritual had tears running down my cheeks, those little boys...
This is one book that does not leave the listener/reader unmoved one way or another.
I can't wait for 'Brogan's Promise', Rose is plotting again LOL

Brad Wills is one of my faves and I would listen to anything he narrates. The various characters, the range of emotions he can display with his voice is amazing and makes me want more. Loved the voice he gave Alex. Thank you for the hours of pure enjoyment.

Great story, but....

At times it's hard to understand the reader trying for a thick female Scottish accent.

excellent story, terrible editing

Brad Wills again sweeps you away into Tizdale' s fantasy world. against all odds, he delivers the story to make you fall in love with the previously despised Bowie clan.

That said, however, the sound editing leaves huge gaps, cuts out mid word and is generally edited on the level of a highschooler in an extracurricular media arts club.
