Publisher's Summary

A Scot on fire.

Wrongfully imprisoned and tortured by an unseen enemy, Broderick MacPherson lives for one purpose - punishing the villain who targeted him. But when a wayward English lass interrupts his revenge, he loses his enemy in the dark. Now, her compelled testimony could send Broderick back to the prison that nearly killed him. Unless they find a loophole - an inconvenient, shockingly tempting loophole.

A beauty under pressure.

For Kate Huxley, visiting her brother in the Scottish Highlands is a blissful escape from the stifling expectations of the marriage mart. Blissful, that is, until a scarred, beastly Highlander with a heartbreaking past frightens her out of her wits, making her a witness in a criminal inquiry. 

A match to light the darkness.

Kate has no wish to testify against a man who's already suffered too much. But the only remedy is to become his wife. And she can't possibly marry such a surly, damaged man...can she? Well, perhaps. If it means she can stay in her beloved Scotland. And if he promises they'll never fall in love. 

Contains mature themes.

Great book! Checks ALL the right boxes

This will be one of those rare books that I’ll be listening to annually, if not more frequently. It’s got so many great layers and checks ALL the right boxes...
✔️Set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands
✔️Historical Romance with just enough angst and tribulations
✔️Extremely likable, multi-dimensional and thoroughly developed characters
✔️H&H have great chemistry and steamy, hot love scenes
✔️Great drama, with a few engaging surprises
✔️Tons of, literal, laugh out loud moments. (Seriously, crazy Mrs. McB is one of my favorite characters of all time)

On top of the great story, Ruth Urquhart’s narration is perfection!

Hopefully, Elisa Braden has plans to add many more books to this series - So far, it’s been a great one!

Just loooved this!

The story, the narrator, everything was so enjoyable. It did take a minute in the beginning to get the names straight during the set up, but that's to be expected with any story. This was one of my favorite narrators. ❤

Good story

I absolutely love Elisa Braden's work. I am not a huge fan of Ruth Urquhart's narration. Ms. Urquhart is growing on me. But the story is terrific! I LOVE Kate! What a great character she is. All the Huxley sister have been strong, funny and interesting. Broderick is a wonderful character as well. He is so heartbreaking in that his terrible experience was over something he really wasn't even aware of. Lockhart's crazy is so terrifying and I think, unfortunately, real. It doesn't play as mere novelist made up crazy, but the kind of thing we actually see in the real world...sad to say. I highly recommend anything by Ms. Braden. She writes a terrific plot with lots of detail, emotion and depth...but not so verbose that the story gets lost in unnecessary sidelines. This is a great read. I am hopeful to see more of the MacPherson brothers!

Kate grew on me--another solid protag

It took some time for Kate to grow on me, especially after so enjoying Annie in the first book. Not Kate's fault she had such big shoes to fill, and she really came into her own. Narrator is lovely, even with Broderick's deep voice.

Wonderful

Oh I did not want this one to end!!! It was so good. The heroine is spunky and funny and a sweet air head (kind of) and the hero is a crabby guy who thinks his life is over but of course she changes that silly notion rather quickly!!! Very very good!!

I love this series

Mrs. McBean still a favorite character. I enjoy books that make me laugh, this one did not disappoint. Love the dialog, family loyalty, and of course the love story. Fingers crossed the other McPherson men get their own stories.

The narration ruined it 😬

I liked the story. It was very entertaining. Kate and Broderick was such lovely pair! However, the narrator was just not my cup of tea. 😩

Loved it

Loved every second if it. Couldn't stop listening. The narrator was better than in the first story. Although sometimes Kate sounded like a cartoon character.
Can't wait for the next one to be released.

Nice story

The heroine was a bit too much of a “ninny” for my tastes. I like heroines with a bit more between the ears. I liked the story, and I’ll get more in this series, but this one wasn’t a favourite.
