Publisher's Summary

Intent on winning a Lowlander's tournament, Bran MacLeod travels south with his laird. All goes as planned, except spirited Miss Enya Ross continually distracts him, and in the oddest situations. With no business lusting after a baron's daughter, Bran decides to return to Raasay - until his laird pledges Bran's services in the fight to reinstate Mary, Queen of Scots to the throne.

Enya has no deference for the lines of nobility, or for the Great Divide that separates Lowlanders from Highlanders. The way Sir Bran's eyes hunger for her ignites an internal fire Enya cannot quell. All her life she's wanted adventure and excitement, but now her every thought is consumed with the rugged Highlander.

With all odds stacked against them, can their forbidden love withstand the tumult of war and the menace of betrayal?

The Highland Henchman: Highland
By Amy Jarecki

A captivating adventure.

True love can conquer all in this breathtaking and thrilling story of Bran and Enya. A concept older than time of society's expectations for whom one is expected to marry, but the heart only see's and feels love, not one's station or status. Bran MacLeod is born of low birth. His mother works in the kitchen and he is but a henchman to his Laird. Then his eyes see Enya Ross, a beauty far above Bran's station. Enya notices this big, handsome highlander and can't seem to take her eyes off him. As Bran does everything to keep his distance from Enya, she does everything to get closer to him. This is a powerful, captivating story filled with well developed characters. A very exciting plot filled with backstabbing intrigue and a most beautiful romance. Everything a reader wants in a great highland story. An absolute must read. Although I highly recommend the audiobook version. It is beautifully narrated. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another delightful listen

Another delightful story from Ms. Jarecki. I loved Bran, an honourable & loyal warrior and Enya is a perfect match for him, sassy and fearless. Their story is full of obstacles, but love wins in the end and they get their HEA, my fave kind of end.
I am a big fan of Mr. Wills narrations and I really enjoyed this one too. Thank you for another great listen.

Very Entertaining.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend this audiobook to friends because it's a perfect example of a wonderful exciting story, with a wide range of characters that the narrator 'read' really well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Bran, the hero. He is the perfect man, thoughtful, caring, loyal, and he'd lay down his life to protect those he loves. He has a heart of gold and is a hero in every sense of the word.

What about Brad Wills’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed Brad's narrative voice, I could listen to a whole book read in just his voice without the characterisation! The fact that he is so good at all the different voices he takes on is just a bonus. It amazes me how he can go from a really gruff man's voice, to a young woman's voice so flawlessly. It's a relief to know that a man can take on a woman's voice without sounding like one of David Walliam's female characters from the BBC series Little Britain.

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

Definitely it would have been wonderful to have had the time to listen to the whole book in one sitting. I managed it in two though, so that wasn't too bad.

Any additional comments?

I think to begin with people may find the Scottish accents that Brad portrays a little difficult to follow. That isn't a fault of Brad's, it just proves how good he is at his job. The Scottish accent IS difficult to follow. I just want to say that even if you struggle a little at the start to understand it, by chapter 2 or 3 you should be able to follow it easily. Persevere, it is definitely worth it.

Wonderful Book

This is such a wonderful story written by Amy and narrated by the best in the business, Brad Wills. I felt as though I was living every minute along side with the people in this book. All her life Enya Ross wanted adventure and excitement, but now her every thought is consumed with the rugged Highlander, Bran MacLeod. What an adventure it was. I loved it!

WORST ENDING EVER!!

Where does The Highland Henchman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Everybody gave it a good review, but I found the book angered me. I liked the first book between Anne & Calum, but in my option in this book Calum is a Bad/Betraying Guy.

What did you like best about this story?

The Love Between Bran & Enya.

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

He did fine.

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

THE PART THAT MOVED ME TO START HATING IT & JUST WANTING IT TO END.

WHEN THE CALUM SHOWED HIS TRUE COLORS (BETRAYER).

Any additional comments?

***SPOILER***
I can't believe the characters forgive these people for betraying them. I can understand Enya forgiving her handmaiden (Heather, I Think) for telling on her. She did it thinking it was the best not knowing, but Calum's betrayal ended with her being basically tortured & then loosing her baby. I'm sorry but I would look at Calum like this is your fault & would never be able to trust him again. Let alone have him stand up next to you at your wedding or even owe him anything. Calum & especially Malcolm should owe Bran & Enya for the life they helped kill (Enya's Baby). Like I said above I HATED the Entire Ending & Because it was so bad I give this book 2 stars.

It Even Gets Better With Book 2

The narration by Brad Wills is very good, but the dialogue at times was extremely hard to understand. At one point I had to slow down the speed to understand what was being said. It didn't always help. I got so frustrated I stopped listening to Book 2 and went to Book 3 to see if he got any better, and he did. Anyway, I completed Book 2 and the story and main characters are very good. You will enjoy this book. It has it all, romance, action, humor, etc.

Offensive Ending

What was most disappointing about Amy Jarecki’s story?

The Laird's betrayal of his Henchman and the horrors and torture his lady went through by the Abbess at the nunnery . I like Jarecki's books but did not like first book in this series either. NOT ONE OF HER GOOD BOOKS. Most story lines were never finished.

What character would you cut from The Highland Henchman?

The heads of the ladies Father and Brother.
