As the story unfolds we discover 5 members of the Lennon family, led by their Laird Callum, had a curse put on them in 1746 and they're all desperately looking for a cure to break the curse and think they've finally found it in the contents of an old book. Present day - in walks Phoebe to translate their old book for them.
For Callum (BHHH - broody handsome Highland hunk) it's instant attraction but he doesn't trust her and unfortunately Phoebe overhears this but she still can't resist him (well who could - check out the picture add a kilt and a Scottish accent, call me shallow, but all is forgiven) and so there's a lot of mental tail wagging, tongues out, drooling and panting done by the pair. However, we all know whenever there's a 'trust' issue then there's always a 'secret' and Phoebe keeps hers too long (typical) - it's one of those listens that you just know she's going to leave it too late to tell him and the inevitable dooda is going to hit the fan.
Interesting likeable characters and, of course, an evil Laird from another Clan makes this a captivating, interesting listen that has passion, sexual tension, romance, paranormal adventure and an intense plot which are all essential ingredients for a great supernatural listen.
My only very very slight criticism is that a few American words crept into the plot i.e. 'block' and 'sidewalk' which aren't English/Scottish words (a bug of mine) but they didn't detract or distract me from a most enjoyable listen and the narration was excellent.
Worth a credit? Yes definitely creditworthy and I'm looking forward to further books which will (hopefully) tell us how the curse will be broken by each of clan members.

First, I’ll start by saying I really enjoyed this story. It had a great plot, interesting characters (who can resist a hunky highlander?) and plenty of romance and passion. The cover art alone was worth the purchase!
However, this felt like an abridged version to me. Granted, it’s a short listen at just under 6 hours but it felt like something was missing. At times the story was a little disjointed and jumped around as if whole chapters were missing. I’m not a big fan of long descriptive narratives but I do want my books with a little more meat.
Overall, I thought this was a good listen but maybe not creditworthy due to the short length. I would suggest waiting to get this one on sale like I did.
