Now she must marry the new heir, Thayer Saiturn, a battle-hardened knight, known as the Red Devil. With a face scarred in battle and a heart broken in love, Thayer has no interest in marriage. But not even the Red Devil can break the promise his foster-father made years ago, and he soon finds himself married to a woman whose exquisite beauty and sweet innocence intrigue him. But can his new bride look beyond his scars to find the hidden passion and undying love locked deep inside him?

Good Story -- Not So Good Narration!
- Lady M
Good Overall Performance, good story
My favorite book by Hannah Howell, Highland Champion, sounds like an overdramatic constipated old man read it. That reader is excellent with Canadian/American style books, but is so fake in British/Scottish as to be a constant irritant. As that reader did many of my favourite Hannah Howell books, no, I would not buy those from Audible. Mary Jane Wells is excellent with conflict and cantankerous novels, but she has such a limited way of reading that I fear she would miss the mark for a novel requiring softer reading. She did a good job with this novel, but doesn't seem to have a large enough range to do many different styles of readings well.
This one is better than the ones I have heard, all by a certain reader.
I would have softened it, made it less shrill.
Yes. It was a reasonable second opinion for a historical romance reader, especially Scottish historical romance.
Mary Jane Wells did a good enough job, but still has much room to grow.
