Publisher's Summary

Duncan MacCoinnich's task... Travel to the twenty-first century Renaissance Faire, deflower the Druid virgins, and go home. Only his job is not so easily accomplished with the virgin in question, Tara McAllister. Time is running out. The evil is closing in on them both. Tara finds Duncan irresistible after what was supposed to be a mock hand-fasting binds them.
When Duncan whisks her to his home in Scotland she could accept that. But when she finds herself in the sixteenth century, away from her modern life, can she forgive? And is it love they feel? Or something else?

Audible Editor Reviews

Time travel, romance, and mythology collide in Catherine Bybee's Binding Vows. Striking Scottish prince Duncan MacCoinnich is, by vocation, a ladies' man, tasked with bedding virgins across history lest they find themselves targets of an evil curse. Nevertheless, at a 21st-century Renaissance Faire Duncan finds himself hopelessly smitten by modish maiden Tara McCallister, and decides to forsake his womanizing ways. Unwittingly whisked away to Duncan's estate in 16th-century Scotland, Tara must adapt to her new environs even as she's pursued by evil forces. At turns playful and provocative, saucy Sottish performer David Monteath perfectly personifies Duncan's devilish allure. Navigating disparate cultures 500 years apart, Monteath provides colorful character acting whether he's playing a cool and coy contemporary Californian or a regal Renaissance aristocrat.

Great Highlander Series - Modern Meets Medieval

This is book 1 in a series. Audible isn't showing the series properly and book 4 came out first and confused many buyers which is a shame as I'm sure that affected the love of these stories to unexpectedly plop late into the series, so the books come in this order.

#1 Binding Vows
#2 Silent Vows
#3 Redeeming Vows
#4 Highland Shifter
#5 Highland Protector (not out in Audiobook yet)

This is a GREAT series, funny, serious, lots of twists and turns, and parts will make you cry. Love the books. AND the narration by David Monteath is PERFECT and frankly that alone is worth the listen. It's great to hear a Scottish man read for the male characters for a change as it really adds to those characters in an addictive sexy way. He's now one of my favorite "readers" (and I've heard many).

The books blend time travel, history, battles, humor, suspense, magick and romance (and some sex) in just the right blend. Each book picks up pretty much where the previous book leaves off and you'll want to go through the next all as soon as each one. It's more a tale of all these great characters, so it's a great family tale not just a romance based on "where can we insert plenty of sex scenes".

While some argue there's enough explanation in each to have them stand alone, since characters' histories and actions span multiple books, do yourself a favor and read them in order!!

Love these books, hope this series continues on and on....

Unremarkable

I read a review on Audible that claimed this book was funny. There were only a few instances that I found even slightly humorous, and I don't think that humor was the tone Bybee was going for. If she was, well, it missed the mark. That may have something to do with Monteath's grave and somber performance, or maybe not. It was a fairly decent story, certainly not memorable. A day after I finished listening to this book and I was already having a hard to time remembering the major plot points.

There are dozens of other time-traveling historical romances that I would recommend before this one. If you've already listened to Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series and/or Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books, then try starting Brenda Joyce's Rose Trilogy or the first book in Melissa Mayhue's Daughters of the Glen series.
