Publisher's Summary

1684, Scottish Highlands

Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is resolved to build a school for ladies in her brother's newly purchased Scottish castle. But when she arrives, not only does she find the castle scorched by fire, but a brawny Highlander bars her entry.

Clan chief Grey Campbell would rather die than see his family home, Finlarig Castle, fall into English hands, so Grey must win the battle of wills with the beautiful Sassenach who flashes a bill of sale before him.

When the war between Evelyn and Grey escalates, passions flare. But outsiders have their own plans for Finlarig. After secrets are revealed, and muskets are lit, the fates of the Campbell Clan, the school, and a possible future for Grey and Evelyn are in as much jeopardy as their lives.

Loved It!

Perfect balance of story, steam, and performance without taking itself too seriously. An enticing listen.

Good story

I would’ve given 5 stars all the way but the seduction was a little flat from others I’ve read and I love Justine as a narrator but her male Scottish voice fell flat for me. Otherwise pretty good story. I’ll probably get the next one in series.

If you want your Highlander’s rugged, better skip this book.

This whole book irritated me to no end. If you want a milksop for a Highlander and obnoxious English chit as your “champion“ with no sense of justice whatsoever, then this book may be for you. Our “hero“ is unable to do anything without being told - including think. In fact, he is the perfect “woke” man WITHOUT any “toxic masculinity”. I have no regard for him and absolutely despise her. I couldn’t wait to see how our “heroine” was going to master HER life and get herself out of every situation. I found her without any redeeming qualities at al and he was no more than a prop so you could call this a ”romance” book. I have only returned one book, in over 10 years but this will most definitely be the second.

Not one of the better Historical Romance books

Interesting idea for a story line however there seemed to be limited character development, descriptions of locations and place within historical time line, even if fictional. I left with a hollow feeling instead of having just feasted on a story rooted in time with unforgettable characters.
