Publisher's Summary

Bound by duty….
Colin MacGregor was born to fight - for his beliefs, his king, and his family’s honor. After years away from his beloved Scotland, he yearns to return to its lush, green hills, and he can... after he completes one final mission for the king. Sent to infiltrate a traitor’s home, Colin is determined to expose the treasonous plot and triumph on the battlefield - until he meets a sensual lass who tempts him toward other pursuits.
Betrayed by passion….
Lady Gillian Dearly is no stranger to temptation. Cast out of her family for bearing an illegitimate child, she’s now the ward of a barbarian conspiring against the king. Her only desire: freedom for her son and for herself at any cost, even if it means making a deal with the devil. Yet when a mysterious Highlander appears in their midst, his raw strength and smoldering gaze give her hope for a future beyond the castle walls - and promise a desire unlike any she’s ever known. Passion, however, comes at a price.
Paula Quinn is married to her childhood sweetheart. They have three wonderful children, a dog, and too many reptiles to count. She lives in New York City and is currently at work on her next novel. You can write to her at

I want to go to Skye!!

Another great highlander romance by Paula Quinn with a fascinating plot that includes many historical references about the war between Catholics and Protestants. The romance develops slowly and it starts getting hot in the last two hours of listening but it is still pretty intense.

Narration: by now I love Carrington MacDuffie. She makes those sexy highlander sound delicious. And her portrayal of little Edmund was perfect! I'd definitely listen to more books by this author and/or narrator. Highly recommended!

Give me a hunky handsome Highland Warrior from the 17th Century, clad him in a kilt (or even troos), give him a Quest, add some other great characters, throw in a love interest and I'm oh soooo happy for 10 hours.

This was the last in a great series (boo hooo) so suggestions Ms. Quinn - how about Children of the Forest, Glen, Mountains, Loch, Sea, Sky..... well anyway you get it PLEASE can we have some more.

This could be a stand alone listen (as could all in the series) but why deprive yourself, if you haven't already listened to book 1, start there sit back and enjoy.

Worth a credit? This series has been a 4 credit investment and I don't regret any - so that would be a YES.
