Publisher's Summary

The three sons of a notorious mercenary should never have met...but now that they are sworn allies, the Scottish Borders will never be the same....

Denied his rightful legacy, Maximilian de Vries devised a plan to avenge himself upon his father and see his own future secured. Allied with his two forgotten half-brothers, he descends upon ancient and mysterious Kilderrick, determined to claim it at any price. A woman rumored to be a witch is the sole one bold enough to defy him but Maximilian has a solution - he will take her to wife, whether she be willing or nay, and seal his claim. 

But this powerful warrior has yet to match wits with Alys Armstrong, a maiden with a thirst for vengeance and a fury that might exceed his own. Alys has no intention of capitulating to the proud and illegitimate son of the rogue who stole everything from her, and she does not share his avowed compulsion to fight fair. 

Bitter enemies from the outset, Maximilian and Alys’ match is a battle of wills. When anger turns to passion, will either of them be able to resist temptation? And when Kilderrick itself is in peril, will they be able to join forces to save the unexpected love they have come to value above all else?

Narrator Nirvana

Timmothy Campbell does such a fabulous narration with all the different accents in his deep resonate voice and yet can do very believable female voices. The story arc is intriguing and is well developed, delivering surprises along the way.

Great start to a series and a treat for the ears

I wasn't sure what to expect from this author as I was unfamiliar with her work, but wow, was I happy I chose this book. The story starts off with a funeral for a very bad man where life-changing revelations are made. From there, we travel to Scotland where it becomes a battle of wits and wills between a group of knights and mercenaries and a small band of women who have been living on their own in the forest outside a ruined keep for years. The central romance is solid and gets particularly swoon-worthy toward the end. The highlight for me was really the ensemble cast of characters and their interactions. There was humor with a couple of laugh out loud moments for me, though I wouldn't characterize this as a romp or rom-com. Somehow this author made the story feel adventurous despite basically staying in one place for most of the book.

Timothy Campbell is also new to me and wow, wow, wow did he ever deliver! Many times throughout the book, he was juggling dialogue from a dozen characters with half a dozen accents, and he made it all seem effortless, as well as making it easy for me to follow. And the voice he gave the hero,.. well some of those lines had me feeling like I wanted to fan myself. I'm delighted to see he narrates the next book in the series.

Overall, a fantastic start to a new series and I'm eager to find out how things go for the rest of the brothers.

an aural treat

I loved all the books by Ms. Delacroix that I listened to so far and this is no different.
The story is not what appears at the beginning, it emerges in stages, with many twists and it was a delight to be on this journey with Maximilian and Alys to their HEA. At times I didn't think they will make it, but make it they did and then some. The characters will make you like, love or hate them, but all unforgettable. Loved the ending, left me with a happy heart.

Timothy Campbell is a new-to-me voice and oh so yummy, an 'eargasm' for sure, varied to reflect each character. My fave is the voice he gave Max, deep and rumbling. The voices given the female characters are equally good, without being sounding false. Looking forward to more.

Sooo good.

The hero is dreamy if a little stoic and tense. I loved the twist on beauty and the beast. Alys was an interesting character, and the secondary characters were all unique and entertaining! Looking forward to book 2

Guilty Pleasure

This story is certainly one of the best from Claire Delacroix, and brought spectacularly to life by the brilliant narration of Timothy Campbell - I could listen to his many voices all day long but particularly the voice he gives to Maximilian de Vries. It was a guilty pleasure to listen to this story and I could barely put it down. Can't wait for the next installments
