They call him Wee William. Though he stands nearly seven feet tall, with arms and legs the size of tree trunks and hands as big as buckets, there is nothing wee about him. His scowl alone is enough to make most men's bones rattle with fear. And women, rather than swooning, tend to run in the opposite direction.
The giant Highlander is a self-proclaimed bachelor who has sworn for years that there isn't a woman in all of Scotland worth shaving his beard for, and for good reason. Years ago, after a bonny young lass broke his heart and left his dignity in shreds, he swore never again to put it in such peril. As a testament to his sincerity, he vowed never again to shave his beard.
Then he met her. In a single heartbeat, Wee William was lost. Forever lost to a brown-haired beauty with gray-blue eyes brimming with tears - a woman in need.
On her wedding night, Nora realized she made a terrible mistake. She had agreed to wed Horace Crawford when he promised her younger siblings would live with them. He soon broke his word and sent them away. Horace soon proved a harsh, cruel husband who owned no heart, nor a shred of decency.
On a dark, cold winter's night, when Nora had almost given up hope of ever saving her siblings and herself, God answered her prayers in a most peculiar way. Through a band of fierce Highlanders on a mission to retrieve small but priceless treasures. Treasures she had unwittingly harbored.
Little did the Highlanders know they would return with more than those treasures - they would return with Wee William's Woman.

I just couldn't put this story to bed. I had to find out what Wee William would do. I found myself becoming closer to him & Nora the deeper I fell into their story. I just love these Highlander themed novels. I love the big, brawny, strong warriors. Their presence is enhanced by my imagination. The beautiful lasses also. I find myself researching more of the medieval lifestyle to help me relate & understand the culture, dress & weaponry. The food, traditions & the Gaelic language.
Thank you Suzan for another great story, for your clan McKenna saga & to Brad thank you. I really do enjoy your narration & the life you give each character. On to McKenna's Honour. X
"unforgettable, the best one yet"
Oh I definitely would! Wee William is my fave character in the whole series and I waited for his audio for seems like forever LOL I think this is the best performance of Brad Wills yet of any I heard so far.
There is no comparison, each book/audio has a charm and story that keeps it unique, and this one is definitely unique.
Where do I start? Loved the deep voice, the flexibility of switching from character to character, be that woman, man, child, old or young, English or Scottish accents, I wondered sometimes if there is really only his voice. The passion with which he tells the tale is incredible, pulled me in and didn't let go.
Yes, it was, alas real life interferes sometimes, I also wanted to drag it out so it will last longer.
I loved the book when I read it, but now having listened to it narrated by the incredible voice of Brad Wills, Wee William is burrowed in my heart for good. There will be more times where I will be listening to this audio. Thank you Ms. Tisdale for a great story and Mr. Wills for telling it in such a wonderful and unforgettable way.
"This is a wonderful audio!!"
I would rank it right up to the top because Brad Will and Suzan Tisdale is a combination that is hard to beat.
When William shaved his beard for the love of a woman.
He always shocks me with how he can use a different voice for each character. The little girls voice sounds just like a little girl. How he can keep up with the voice he is using for each one, is beyond me. I am spoiled with his performances so much that I can't listen to any other without compareing them. He could read a phone book and keep my attention. He is the very best in the business.
It sure was!! I have done it before and stayed up all night doing it.
I laughed, cried and was very tense with reading this book myself, but with Brad doing the voices for me it just touched me much, much more. Thumbs up to both Suzan and Brad. You are both real winners!!
"A captivating Scottish adventure!"
I would strongly recommend this audio to everyone, especially lovers of Scottish romances!
Suzan Tisdale are amazing, so I suggest her other books too!
No, I prefer to listen to it by chapters!
Again, I was not disappointed! Ms. Tisdale is a very talented writer and I love her stories!
"Great story, fantastic narration!"
The dynamic duo of Suzan Tisdale's writing and Brad Wills narration has captivated me once again. I am still in awe how the narrator goes from a small child to a 7 foot tall giant, with a host of characters in between without the listener even realizing the change is taking place it's so well done. The story of the gentle giant and the resilient heroin who captures his heart is very endearing. The same lovable Highlanders we have seen in the previous Caln MacDougall series' are all there and a welcome return.
Absolutely worth the credit! Well done!
This was my favorite book of this series. I had read it a few months back and while doing some painting projects around the house and decided I would listen to the story while doing so. Sometimes hearing the book being narrated does nothing for the story, however that was not the case with this book. Wee William is huge, and he is quite the warrior, yet he's also man that understands worthwhile values in life. It's these very values that he wants, and and yet simultaneously he fears responsibility of that endears me to Wee William. To him being a husband and having family is the most important thing a man can do in his life. What's not to love about that? He worries more about what he considers his shortcomings rather than focusing on what it is he has to give someone he loves .... namely Nora. There were times I laughed out loud at the turmoil William had as he came to terms with his feelings. Also, when Duncan's wife goes into labor I found humor in Duncan and William's reactions to the birth. This is by far my favorite book of the series. I enjoyed Williams character in the previous books and he did not disappoint in this book.
Findley's Lass. It is about the same as Susan's Tizdales other novels, but I think the author had a better plot for this book.
Wee Williams rescue of this woman
Parts of it made you laugh,
The wedding scene was a bit more detailed than I would have liked, but overall it was a good plot with good characters in it. It was true to the series.
"Favorite of the Three Books!"
Enjoyed this story. Narrator was excellent with all characters! Personally I would prefer a female for the adult women's voices.
Loved the narrator. Wonderful story and funny. Loved all the characters and can't wait to read next book.
"Wee William YES!"
I was very much looking forward to hearing Wee William's story and I wasn't disappointed. The story and characters made me smile, so adorable!
All of them - I really enjoyed Brad Wills! His voices vary enough to be distinguishable without being distracting when doing the female characters.
I loved this audiobook very much! The narration was just perfect and I fell in love with the character of Wee William, a big gruff Scot who never thought any woman would be his due to his size and manner. He tries to avoid the idea of being in love but when the woman he loves is offered up for courting by his clan chieftain, he shaves his beard and claims her.
"Wee gigantic jem"
Exciting - Wonderful - thoroughly enjoyable
Wee William he is truly a wonderful hero and such an engaging character
He brings Suzan Tisdale words to life. His wonderful range of voices both male, female and the childrens was an exciting joy to listen too
There were so many memorable moments from all the characters that i stopped and started to hear several scenes again
Between Suzan Tisdale writing and Brad Wills wonderful narration this is turning into a marvellous series who characters are so enduring
