Publisher's Summary

Ordinarily, Lady Fiona Ormiston wouldn't think of forming an alliance with an ungroomed, barbaric Highlander, but now, by request of the king, a brazen stranger and outsider is to be her husband. Driven by her sense of duty, Fiona leaves the comfort of her home to marry the rugged knight, but when she surrenders herself to Sir Adham MacFinlagh's powerfully passionate - and shockingly tender - touch, she finds herself in bed with a man whose ties may lie with an enemy of the throne.

Fiona isn't the only one who feels torn; falling for his beautiful, willful wife forces Sir Adham to confront the conflicting forces influencing him. With whom does his allegiance lie - a man who hopes to overthrow the king or the bride who stole his heart?

Beautiful recording, so Scots

It's a slightly political 15th century swimmingly soothing romantic drama with steady pace and quietly revealed characters.

No “passionate” scenes

Very dull, almost non existent sex scenes. Not that it wasn’t a cute story, but that’s all it was.... cute. The writer didn’t have to overly explain the sex scenes, but an attempt to do so would have been a whole lot better. I felt like my mom was telling me a love story and was being as vague as possible. I did finish the book. I lost interest in the story and everything else. It was too predictable and boring by time I quit the book. I gave it 3 stars because it is a cute little story, just not my taste.

Narration/character voices could be better

The narrator needs to do a better job of distinguishing one character from another with the voices. It all sounds like the same character speaking throughout the story. Also very monotone. Couldn’t listen to the rest of the book after 2 hours... :(

Love story, hate narrator

I have always loved Amanda Scott books, have read most of them, was delighted to see they were in the romance package, so was going to finish the ones I haven't read yet. I will read this one. The narrator was so boring and terrible I couldn't stay awake to tell if the story was decent or not. Shame when narrators ruin books. She read in a monotone, slowly with no emotion.
