Publisher's Summary

He is the last man she would ever marry...

After being unceremoniously jilted by her betrothed, Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated and heartbroken - but she's not desperate. As the daughter of an earl, she won't give her hand to just anyone, and she definitely isn't swayed by a last-minute proposal from Laird Duncan MacRae. The powerful clan chieftain may be disarmingly handsome and charming, but he's not a nobleman. Mairi doesn't want his pity or his charity - even though his dark smoldering gaze makes her melt with desire.

She is the only woman he could ever love...

Dunn may be a battle-hardened clansman, but he's always had a soft spot for Mairi. For years, she tormented him with flirtation - only to reject him. But he's not giving up. When Mairi is attacked by redcoats, Dunn goes after the woman he loves. Through brute strength and fierce action, he will protect her life at any cost. But to win her heart, he will have to show her the tenderness in his own.

Swooning!

This story is outstanding. Author Amy Jarecki writes beautifully, paying close attention to details of the time period. One cannot help imagining the scenery or the actions of each character vividly, as if you are in the story itself. Incredibly romantic, wildly passionate and a very exciting story. Dave Gillies performed this story with an enticing Scottish brogue and great passion. A must have!

A highland love story.

Another fabulously written 5+ star book by Amy Jarecki! 💗 Her distinctive writing style is filled with love, romance, humor and mystery. Dave Gillies deserves 5+ stars for his very gifted performance of this wonderful story. It kept me enthralled until the very end. This is a do not miss audiobook.

Loved it!

The journey of Laird Duncan MacRae and Lady Mairi MacKenzie is filled with romance, adventure, intrigue, betrayal, and love. I love Amy Jarecki’s highland stories; have listened to 15 of them. This is another winner performed by Dave Gillies. Mr. Gillies wonderful narrative brings to life Ms. Jarecki’s lovely story. He is one of my favorite Scottish storytellers.

Nope (Hero almost sleeps with whore)

I do not like a Hero who is in-love with the heroine, yet almost sleeps with someone else. I do not care if they are not together yet or not. It had not been that long since he asked for the Heroines hand in marriage, admits to himself he asked to soon after she was rejected by another. NOPE turned me off big time.

Another wonderful highland romance novel by Amy. I really enjoyed Dave's narration of the book and wish he had performed the other books in the series. He has a fantastic voice.
