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....

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.

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!

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.

Could Not Stop Listening

LS has done it again. This series is so good. Each of her books so far has, mystery, love, sex and other surprises along the way. If you are a LS fan, this book will not disappoint.

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.

Story was good but the narator was dreadful!

Story was good but the narator was dreadful! If it's a Scottish story get someone who sounds Scottish or at least can say Loch properly! Not lock!

Stupid/Unbelievable/Boring

All the characters are "one dimensional"; the heroine is totally unbelievable. She wakes to find that not only has she escaped near death, but all her family has been poisoned.
The heroine shrugs of an idea of playing it safe, continuing as usual, making the hero and his brothers overact, as none seem able to contain her.
Her only surviving brother has left the castle with his bully of a wife to escape the so called illness. He and his retinue turn up dead as well.
The reason for all this carnage is; the Aunt previously thrown out of the home has returned heavily disguised and not recognised. In an effort not to marry the man her father has chosen, she climbs into bed with a man who is not only a monster, but married. She is given to the abuser and thrown out of her family home. He builds he a fancy cottage near his family home and continues to abuse her for years. She won't leave this abuser with the man who loves her, (is it the Stockholm Syndrome or is she an narcissist) he is killed, she has his child. When the girl is 12 years old, the abuser, knowing she is not his child, replaces her with her mother. Her daughter finally kills herself, leaving a grandchild. The abuser throwns both off his land, so she returns to her family home. She blames her father for all that has happened to her and brother for not knowing her when she returns. So decided to kill them all and take over as Clan leader, she also knows about the secrete passages.
The only other person, who knows about the pasages is the "righthand man of the clan leader". So despite everyone being poisoned and proof that the only member of the family is still a target. He says nothing "as there is no clan leader", the only person he can tell.
Finally the heroine marries the hero, he becomes "clan leader", learns about the passages, understands how the murderer has managed to elude them, and tells all his brothers.
There is alot of rubbish in between, then you get chunk sizes of the story, before you return to the rubbish.
So far I have been sadly disappointed with this author's stories and can't blame the narrator for the material that she needs to read. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

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!
