Publisher's Summary

When Raelynd Schellden and her sister are caught in the stables with the notorious McTiernay twins, her father sees not scandal, but opportunity. The future of his clan is uncertain, and a double engagement - even under false pretenses - will lend security to his people and protect his beloved daughters from power-mad fools. But Raelynd's designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother, Crevan, a man born to lead. Though bound by honor and committed to his sworn duty, Crevan cannot resist a taste of Raelynd's crimson lips when offered - and then another and another - until the unlikely couple is entangled in both a public deception and each other's hearts.

Critic Reviews

"Like a delightful Shakespearean comedy, Sinclair's latest has humor, passion and sexual tension." ( RT Book Reviews)

An enjoyable listen 4 brothers down & only 3 to go

In this book we get not one but two handsome McTiernay Highland brothers - Craig and Crevan with their muscled bodies, kilts and broad tanned shoulders (mind get out of the gutter) ok I'm back.... but this is mainly Crevan's story and once I started listening to it, it hooked me in and I just couldn't stop listening.

Two sets of twins, the McTiernays and the Shelldyn girls Raeland and Merlel who have been spoilt rotten by their loving Father but they all get manipulated by one person or another into a false engagement with humorous, touching, aggravating, annoying yet entertaining and sweet results. There's a male Cousin Cyric who doesn't care which of the girls he'll marry but there's a surprise or two waiting for him.

Crevan isn't your typical Alpha hero but your heart goes out to him as he's misunderstood, insecure, has a stammer and feels he's not good enough for the girl he loves. But, with the help, guidance and interference of big brother Conor, Laurel and their children (book1) things could work out for the six main characters involved whose flawed characters all mature and bloom in this well-written, but unbelievable plot which ends in romance and two marriages..... but exactly who marries who is a mystery until the very end.

Worth a credit? Again, Ms Sinclair jumps from the story to the Epilogue and totally misses the best bit but despite that this has been another entertaining listen which was worth a credit.

Great, until it wasn't...

I don't know what is with this fascination for abrupt endings. The epilogue was interesting, but I would much prefer that the story unfold, not just get written about.

A series in kilts

The ending before the epilogues are abrupt, but it’s just her style. I don’t mind it so much that I won’t listen to any more books. I am a sucker for a series in kilts, and these are good.

Not my favorite

There was too much going on in this book. Too many story lines taking place instead of focusing more on the main couple.

Good Story

Bottom line the story was good. I really enjoy love triangles which this had, my only complaint was that their were alot of characters and most of the guys names all sounded alike. I read and listen to books everyday and I felt like I needed a pen and paper to keep the names straight. Definitely a good read, where you can see the names. If you are good at keeping similar names straight then no problem, otherwise you may want to make a name chart to start off. Anne Flosnik is always great! It is worth the listen just be prepare so you can maximize your enjoyment.

The Not So Perfect McTiernay Brother - Nice!

This is a good book because everyone is not perfect. There are shortcomings that come to the for regarding Crevan and Raelynd and it makes the story interesting.

Not a Fan

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story line was lacking. It was difficult to keep track of which twin was speaking.

What could Michele Sinclair have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Break it into two books to focus on one set of twins at a time.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

Adam Paul would have been much better.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really, I doubt I will give it a second listen which I usually do.

liked it.

this was a good book, not great, but good. the only thing missing were surprises and a little "on the edge of your seat" intrigue.
