Publisher's Summary

In a spellbinding new Highlands story from New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands, the laird of the Buchanans finds the one woman who is his equal in passion and courage.

Aulay Buchanan has retreated to his clan’s hunting lodge for a few days of relaxation. But the raven-haired beauty he pulls from the ocean puts an end to any chance of rest. Though he christens her Jetta, she knows nothing of her real identity, save that someone is trying to kill her. As she recovers, it will not be easy for Aulay to protect her and keep her honor intact when she mistakenly believes they are man and wife…

Jetta sees beyond Aulay’s scars to the brave, loyal warrior she’s proud to call her own. But as the attempts on her life grow more brazen, Jetta realizes that not all is as she believes. And if Aulay is not her husband, can she trust the desire flaring in his eyes, or his promise to defend her with his life?

Sweet, Fun Highlander Addition

It is alway a refreshing change to read a story where both the hero and heroine are sweet, kind, caring people. Ollie was injured and scarred in the battle that killed his twin brother. Ever since then he has kept away from women, who all seemed disgusted by his face. He just wants a little R&R and to go fishing with his younger brother when they come upon a half-submerged ship’s mast with a woman tied to it. She is semi-conscious when they rescue her but she quickly passes out due to severe head trauma (my favorite common theme of this author) but not before getting a good gander at Ollie and calling him her “angel.”

Unfortunately upon awakening Jetta (assumed name) has no memory of herself or those around her but finds Ollie next to her and scantily clad leading her to assume he is her husband. Ollie likes the sound of that too much and thus begins a comedy of errors of sorts.

Ollie and Jetta are very attracted to each other, their honor, sweetness, and personalities as well as their exteriors. While Jetta is in recovery, the fake marriage allows for liberties that Ollie tries to fight honorably against. They both make erroneous assumptions about the others thoughts and feelings all the while there is an ominous presence causing problems and multiple additional head wounds (some day I am going to survey Lyndsay Sand’s historical head injuries).

As the investigation of this evil presence continues and Jetta continues to heal, many couples from the previous Highlander books appear and cause some laugh-out-loud moments.

This book was fairly predictable but in a cozy and comfortable way. It’s easy to know what to expect from a Lyndsay Sands novel: sweetheart MCs, some evil entity that is eventually outed, and many many many head injuries almost to the point of wondering how everyone in her books isn’t permanently concussed. In this case, the story that the evil entity tells is soooooo terrible that I almost sided with the evil entity... like yeah, I guess it makes sense you did all this evil stuff after what you’ve been though. But I won’t share more to avoid spoilers.

Finally I have to address the Joel Froomkin in the room. He did an AMAZING job!!! I love a real Scottish accent and Joel delivers! His accent reminded me at moments of Sean Connery so there is NOTHING wrong with that. He also did such a great job with the female voices (both Scottish and English) that I almost wondered if they brought in a separate female narrator. I was impressed by the emotion he brought to the book as well, especially Ollie’s character. My only complaint here is that the word “grimace” was pronounced in a way that I am not used to and made the author’s overuse of that word VERY apparent. Otherwise it was a fabulous narration!.

This is a nice, non-angsty Highlander read that I think will satisfy anyone but especially Lyndsay Sands fans. The heat and love between the MCs was palpable and the mystery element was worked well in to the story.

Why change narrator in the series

This was one of the worst listens I've endured in quite a while. The narrator made the characters seem like they were brainless Airheads. It was an extremely tough listen this time. I'm a big fan of Lynsay Sands and I look forward to reading or listening to her next books. However, if this narrator will narrate the next book I will not purchase. It's not anything personal against the narrator. He just was not right for this particular book.

AGAIN A TERRIBLE NARRATOR HAS RUINED A BOOK...

I really enjoyed this whole series, however, I agree with one of the other reviewers, why change narrators for every book. The narrator for this book was not good at all. Made all the characters sound like Neanderthals. Sorry Lynsay...please listen to it before it goes out. I do love your books and will look forward to the next one ( depending on the narrator). <3

Just Gets Better and Better

The story of each brother is very enjoyable, and for me Aulay's story is endearing. The connection between him and Jetta is great to his surprise from the very beginning. This book will not disappoint. You will be taken on a sensual, emotional and suspenseful ride. LS does it again.

Great story, bad narrator!

It’s such a great story!!! The H/H relationship is so tender, so intimate, so passionate. But the narrator ruined it. If you can suffer through the narration you will love the story. I love all the books from the author. If it is your first time with that série I recommend starting with an English bride in Scotland. Can’t wait for the next one, hoping for a new narrator.

Loved the story and this series

The narrator took the fun out of this book for me. I love this series and have been excited about each new release by audio except for the latest two of the series. For this story, Mr. Froomkin has a colorful way of delivery and his timing was great during the humorous parts but I thought the men sounded a bit dimwitted and the females as if they were very strict and formidable. I finished it because the story was interesting but will beware of who narrates the next one.

Once again the voice spoils the story

The narrator’s voice sounded like a 90 year old man, making his declaration of love and any passionate scene sound very odd, unlikely and gross. His women’s voices sounded very masculine. Please take the time to find the right peron

Not good

Let me start off by saying I loved all the other highland brides before this one. It was like Lynsay just give up on this one. If it wasn't for Joel Froomkin being the narrator it would have been a one star.

The Highlander,s Promise

A good book but not as good as the last 2. Some of the humour is lacking.
