Publisher's Summary

A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other's arms, but only love can mend their hearts.

An Outlander

Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil knight in exchange for his help to overthrow the king, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she's captured by the knight, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he's to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king's orders and wed her to the knight if she refuses the Highlander's hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.

A Highlander

After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.

Ensnared

Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain's love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife - her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion - but he refuses to give up his heart.

A Little DeJaVu.....But Great!

I love highlander books and this one is enchanting, exciting, and adventurous from beginning to end. It has wonderful characters and a delightful story......but I have to admit, a little into the story I started to get a little dejavu. It took me a while to figure it out but the story is very reminiscent of "The Bride" by Julie Garwood. In fact, much of the storyline is similar. So, if you liked "The Bride" you are sure to enjoy this one too. 😉

Tim Campbell did a wonderful job narrating, as usual. 😀

I enjoyed every moment immensely

I couldn't stop listening to the narration. Started listening to the book on a Friday evening and finished it the next day, that's how enthralled I was.

Ok Highlander

This story was just ok. I didn't think it was all that great. Your average Highlander plot...I think it needs a twist of some sort it was predictable. Ok for the credit I guess....don't think Ill go on to the next one.

Truly Worth the Read

I am a huge Outlander fanatic and must say that I expected this book to mimic its story line. It's completely different, with all the great things we love about strapping Scots, love, sex, intrigue and excitement. I couldn't put the book down.

Definitely A Winner

This was a wonderful book. The love story was we'll done, the love scenes had just the right amount of steam and the drama and suspense kept me on the edge if my seat until the end.

The narrator was superb too. I would definitely look for other books specifically he's the narrator

Wow, loved it!

What did you like best about this story?

This book far exceeded my expectations, it was such a joy to listen to, and I really fell in love with the characters, especially the main characters Iain and Marion. What I loved best were the layers within this story - this wasn't just about the two main characters, the author brought in so many characters to add complexity and depth. You could get a feel for each character's personality, emotions, etc. I also loved that I couldn't predict what would happen. There were many surprises! I even literally cried at one point in the story, my heart felt so much for Marion. So sad it ended! Bravo, well done with this historical romance.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh, hard to choose! I really enjoyed the part of the book just before and after Marion meets Iain, and their journey together. I also loved listening to how Marion overcame challenges she faced in her new home, especially with the other women. There were times when I cringed feeling her pain, and joy to find out how she solved problems. What an admirable character.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a great job. At first I was skeptical about a male voice telling a love story, wondering how Marion would sound, but he did a truly amazing job. He is wonderful with accents and pitches.

Excellent Story and Narration

This is my first book by this author and the story was excellent. The main characters are well written and life during that time period is historically accurate. I was especially impressed by the narration. Mr. Campbell was Excellent! I have my favorite narrators for different authors and these 2 make a great pair. If you like Highland romance you have to listen to this one. I can't wait to start the next book in this series.
