Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands' captivating romance, a lass targeted by an unknown foe is saved - and seduced - by a bold Highlander

Edith Drummond owes her life to Niels Buchanan and his brothers. Waking after an illness to a castle overrun by rugged Highlanders is disconcerting, but so is learning that she's slowly being poisoned. Niels insists on staying by her side, and Edith soon discovers that even more dangerous is her wild attraction to the fierce warrior.

Niels has never met a more courageous - or enticing - woman than Lady Edith. The idea of such a bonny lass being forced to enter a nunnery is more than any red-blooded Scotsman could bear. He'll gladly marry her himself. But while sweeping her off her feet is easy, it'll take all his skill to defeat her family's relentless enemies and convince her to surrender to his sweet embrace....

Average story...

While I usually love a Lynsay Sands Highlands story, this one just didn’t connect with me. I felt like the story dragged on and on. I couldn’t really get a feel for the personalities of the main characters. Usually Ms. Sands imparts some warmth and emotion into her characters, but this book felt rather lifeless and stale. The narration was good though!

Expected so much more

I'm a Sands fan and I eagerly anticipated this book. I wanted to some thing a little more comical with a fantastic story line. This just wasn't it. Too many deaths for one book. I would not recommend it.

Good!

I want to start off by saying I’m a huge Lynsay Sands fan. I love her Highlander books in general but this wasn’t my favorite one. The main characters are fine. I didn’t fall in love with either of them but they didn’t annoy me either. I really enjoy the play between the brothers though, especially with Rory. He’s an interesting character! The mystery was good and I didn’t catch on until the end which kept me listening. However, there is some serious victim shaming that upset me and may upset other readers too. This disappointed me greatly. I adored the narrator and hope to hear more from him!! His voice is like silk and his Scottish accent is great! He didn’t overdo it. Perfect! All in all it was an enjoyable listen. Just not my favorite.

Another fabulous book

This was exciting and the end was unexpected. Throughout the story I kept thinking I knew who did what but boom surprise after surprise.

Suspenseful

I am one of those people that can figure out a mystery in the beginning of every story. This was truly a good suspenseful story until the end. I highly recommend this book.

Always a pleasure.

I thoroughly enjoy these characters and look forward to more tales of their loves and friendships. Also liked a male narrator for a change :)

Not good, compared to the others

This book is just not as good as other books by Lynsay Sands. The story is dragging along und the characters are not as engaging. Frankly the story also does not make much sense. It felt like parts of the story were better done in other books and what was new, was not good.

very good story

Very good story. it's sweet, funny and a good mystery story. The narrator was ok. This is the 2nd time after a while that im listening to this series and im enjoying it very much as I had forgotten how they ended. This is the 4th book of the series. There are another 2 + the new one that came out this month, Geordies story. Now on to the next one. Ollie's story.

Weird narration

At times the narrators accents sound more Eastern European than Scottish. But once you get past that it’s okay. Less sex and funny scenes than the other books, so far in the series, except for the bit about jams. I will never look at preserves the same way again!
