Publisher's Summary

Jennie Grant has always wished to be a healer, but when her clan becomes involved in the violence that has broken out across the Highlands, it shakes her belief in herself. She no longer knows if she can work in a trade where life and death exist in such a fine balance. Desperate to clear her head and spend some time away from the wounded men who crowd the sickroom in the Grant keep, she travels to Lochluin Abbey for sanctuary. But even there, she cannot escape her calling. The abbey sits on the land of the Cameron clan, and when the new chieftain is injured in battle, Jennie is the only person capable of saving him.

Though Aedan Cameron would sooner spend his life as a scholar, reading, and watching the stars than assume a leadership role in his clan, his father's untimely death forces his hand. To make matters worse, he's immediately called upon to ride into battle to protect his land and his people. But everything changes for Aedan when a beautiful girl with a mind as curious as his own heals him. Suddenly, he realizes he's capable of becoming the leader his father wanted him to be while still pursuing the stars. Aedan recognizes his soul mate in Jennie, but can their love survive the mysterious threat to his land?

i wish i could love it.....

this could have been good but there were a few things i couldnt get pass.....the narration..... sure this is the same guy that did the one before this but but this time i jist couldn't get past it.... then there were a couple of things that couldnt not have been possible.... 3 days of child birth..... the baby would have been dead.... or both the mother and the baby..... and whole thing about paper... although she addressed it in the author's notes... i feel it was pretty off........ but the narration killed it for me.....

Wonderful book, wonderful audio!

What made the experience of listening to The Brightest Star in the Highlands: Jennie and Aedan the most enjoyable?

I would recommend not only this book, but the entire series to all my friends. Paul Woodson always does a magnificent job of bringing the characters to life through his ability and range to suit the voices to the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't have just one favorite character in this series, however I can't wait to hear the audio of Loki's story.

I am sorry, but I prefer the other narrator.

And while I love these stories, I was frustrated with how wimpy Jenni and Aedon were most of the book.

Keira Montclair is a fantastic author and Paul Woodson is a fantastic narrator. I love anything Highland and so love this series. I want it to go on and on! Anyone who likes romance and action in the Highlands MUST listen to this book and all the rest in this series.

It was ok

The story was ok. Truth me told I don't think I am a fan of Keira's books. They are just too childish for me. The female characters are just to naive. Perhaps I am just to old for such romance. I listened to the first 6 books in the series cos A. Ferguson was the narrator. He is my favorite , I know many people think Ferguson is horrible at doing female voices. I don't agree. I can not listen to Paul. I tried in other books. He over dramatized the the whole book in his narration and he really can do to female voices. I could not finish the book.

About a 3 1/2

It’s got a good storyline behind it it’s good with the emotional part and learning with the Highlanders as I said before aren’t described as you usually read in the Highlander books good plot good storyline but the exciting part is not exciting the bad guy dies too easy which is good because it always frustrates you when he gets away and I enjoyed the narrator

Changed narrator

I love this series but why change the narrator for the last 2 books? I feel like I'm listening to a different series now. My characters all seem like different people now. Disappointing.
