What made the experience of listening to Captured by a Laird the most enjoyable?
It had everything that makes a good book; a revenge tragedy (a drama popular in the 16th - 17th centuries), romance, intrigue, a handsome, fierce Highlander who storms a lovely widow's gates to exact punishment on her clan and force her to marry him. The new Laird has trouble inside and outside the Castle/Keep he's conquered. It was concise and flowed right along; no boring interludes.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Captured by a Laird?
There were many but when the Laird's youngest brother (a lovable, meek nature young man with little training with the sword) rides into the path of a renown French swordsman was certainly memorable. The young Hume brother was leaving the Keep (unaware his two older brothers had been in a skirmish with the Frenchman and his men) when he saw his Laird brother and his next oldest brother in hot pursuit of the Frenchman he rode to intersect him. Would his brothers reach the Frenchman in time (one brother riding in from the side where he had been stationed as a look-out and Laird Hume a distance behind the Frenchman); will they get to him before he severs the young man's head?
What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He has the ability to relate to each character and create different character's voices! So much better than reading it myself.
If you could rename Captured by a Laird, what would you call it?
A Laird's Revenge!
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend "Captured by a Laird".

I'm a big Margaret Mallory fan but I have to say Captured by a Laird is one of her very best. I was hooked from the very first chapter and could not put it down. Derek Perkins did a very good performance of this book and made it truly enjoyable.
