Publisher's Summary

Danielle D'Aville, the ward of Edward III, was sworn to obey the King's order to marry her enemy Adrien MacLachlan, the legendary Scot who masterminded the fall of Danielle's beloved home, Aville.

Suddenly she was the arrogant knight's reluctant wife, pledged to a marriage neither desired. But swept off to his castle in the Scottish highlands, and into his strong embrace, Danielle was soon possessed by a raging passion for the husband she had vowed to despise.

Found A Good One WOW!!!

This Book tells more of a story in the first chapter then in other entire books I have spent money on, then it just gets better and better as the chapters go on. The male voice is good, but not in the female voice.:( Someday I hope that audible business will get it that we all want one female voice and one male voice. Even old time radio did it right, my mother is 85 and tells of her nights as a young girl listening to the voices on the radio. Male was a male, female was a woman. Come on Audible, I pay to much for this bad form.

Good story BUT

To be absolutely fair the story is very well written and full of fact based action with a interesting historical background. BUT I do not particularly enjoy rape as part of any romantic novel. Yes it might be the condition in the past with victorious kings to rape there captive but it did not stop there. The consumption of the marriage is also another rape .. the narrator while in general good, failed when he tried to speak with a Scottish accent.

Not Bad

Drags here and there, the sex is a bit snooze worthy but there. I would have liked the heroine to best the hero once in awhile.

Excellent story!

I was skeptic listening at the beginning of this book but as it continued on, I became very intrigued. It was well written and I like the characters a lot. I was really surprised that no one picked up on Danielle being the King's daughter! Although I can see that if she looked as beautiful as her mom like they kept saying. I hated her childish attitude at times but then again she was a child in herself no older than 16-17 years so I can understand. All in all, I enjoyed this book and shall look for more from the author.
