Overbearing Chief meets Romantic Lass

I listened to this book later than many of the other reviewers so I had the opportunity to read the reviews before I listened. Because the reviews seemed mixed I didn't know what to expect. As anyone who reads my reviews knows.......I love historical romances, especially ones with Highlanders, so I eventually would have gotten to this one.

The Chief is a well written story and is a cross between historical fiction and a harlequin romance. History is intertwined nicely within the romantic story along with action, spies and a mystery. At times this book was predictable but it didn't take away any delightful moments of the story.

A few negative reviews of this book unfairly compared it to 'The Outlander' and I don't understand why. 'The Chief' is not paranormal and not 33 hours long. It is an entertaining romantic historical romance set in Scotland and that's where the comparison ends.

Overall, it was quite nice to escape to Scotland to visit an overbearing, stubborn, handsome highland chief and his curious, beautiful dreamer of a lass. Hope to visit them again in book 2.

All hail the Chief!

This story begins with a longwinded and boring recitation of historical facts and the setup for this story. It was hard for me to follow... l felt like I was back in school and too bored to learn anything. However... once that is done a very good story grows. It is full of strong individuals and interesting personalities. The tale becomes one to truly enjoy instead of one to prepare you for a quiz.

NARRATOR: I have always enjoyed Robert McNab . He is a talented narrator with a mastery of voices, accents and emotions.

CREDITWORTHY? Well.... get if You can past the dry , awful , boring beginning of this tale then yes!

Heat Factor? steam...
