Publisher's Summary

Lady Jolene Gerard is running out of time - each moment she remains within the walls of Drumwich Castle she is in jeopardy. Her only chance lies with a prisoner chained to the dungeon walls, a Scotsman who, in return for freedom, helps Jolene and her young nephew escape her cousin's deadly snare. Pursued by murderous villains, Jolene is prepared to fight for her life. But in the arms of rugged Sigimor Cameron, she soon surrenders her heart... He was too late to save the Englishman to whom he owed a blood debt, but not the man's lovely sister. Stunned by his desire for the spirited English lass, Sigimor presses them on to safety, his enemies in dogged pursuit. And while sweet desire speaks a thousand words, the secret they long to share remains locked in a battle of stubborn pride. But when saving Jolene from his enemy leaves Sigimor no choice but to make her his wife, a bargain born of passion can only by sealed by the kiss of true love...

A Warrior Riding with a Laddie in Front on Saddle

I love this story as our hero continues his witty dialogue from Highland Groom, and our heroine is no slouch either in the wit department. Pure entertainment at it’s best.
Ok, I figured out this author after 7 books, and skipping the order. This author has wit, humor, adventure and mystery in a core romance. This is not a heavy series, but pure light entertainment. Hence I skipped to book #5,6, after some of the heavier earlier adventures book1-4.
Yes, after being a Julie Garwood and Jude Deveraux fan of most all of their early career historical romance books, this author after book #1 didn’t really appeal to me.
However, when I became a loyal fan of reader Ms Dawe, I have come back to this series, for delightful entertainment. I am slowing working my way through the series, back to book 2,3 which I don’t yet have. I love the books from #5 froward as the wit and humor stand out and the heroines have spunk.
I love reader Angela Dawe for male and children’s voices, and her interpretation of this author. Her foreign accents are very good, and I buy just about any story Ms Dawe reads with a Scottish brogue. She is that good. Yes, you do have to get accustomed to her female voice style.
See her in Mystery Marcia Clark’s series for a great listen. Or Julie Garwood’s Sweet Talk, and my most fave Tiffany Snow series.
I do use 1.25x speed to match an author’s intent.

Dont buy this book for the is awful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Have someone else narrate this book. I like the story but Angela Dawe has an awful cadence it is like fingernails on a chalk board. She goes up and down and screeches her words out.....I will never buy another book narrated by her. She doesn't anticipate the story and her diction shows how little she understands how to tell a story. I have heard 5 year old read better that her.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the interaction between Jolene and Sigmor and I have read several of Hannah Howells books, but I will never ever listen to one.

Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

NO not ever again

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?
