Publisher's Summary

When destiny brought Sir Balfour Murray and his wounded brother down the same road as Maldie Kirkaldy, she offered her services as a nurse even as she tried to deny the desire this dark-eyed knight had ignited at first sight. Soon they discover that they both share a mission of vengeance, but Maldie cannot tell him her true identity - to do so would brand her a spy.
Sworn to avenge his family as chief of the Doncoill Clan, Balfour vows to destroy his greatest foe, with Maldie at his side. Yet Balfour knows that he can no more afford to trust her than he can ignore his lust for this sultry beauty. Now, he is not only determined to unearth her deepest secrets, but also to pursue his passion for her. And nothing will stand in his way.

Meh...Its OK

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

It's not a bad story line, it just very predictable. Laird meets low born girl, battle feelings, status, bloodline and over come it all in the name of love...the end.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe?

I'm a huge fan of Robert Petkoff, Kristen Potter does pretty good scots accents. Davina Porter did an excellent job with the outlander series. My issue with Angela Dawe is her tempo of speech. Ms. Dawe reads way too fast! I feel she need more emotion in her lines, its not very appealing when a character is muttering a line engulfed in heated passion and it sounds like its being read by Ben Stein.

Any additional comments?

Like I said the story line is ok, but I probably would have given the book a higher rate with a different narrator. The delivery of the story can really make or break the book.

Another worthy Highland Warrior Trilogy starts

These books are about the three handsome Highland brothers from the Murray clan. Balfour is clan chief and he is instantly attracted to Maldie, a healer, who he comes across while returning from a battle and decides he needs her - not just because his brother Nigel is wounded but because she is also beautiful.

Both Balfour and Nigel are attracted to Maldie but she is only interested in one of the brothers. Instant attraction, good romance but secrets that are kept ruins their relationship and anyway she has a previous promise to fulfil elsewhere which all leads to mistrust and misgivings.

I hope Audible will soon stock book 2 Highland Honor (Nigel's story) and Highland Promise (Eric's story). Then there are the spin off series that H.H. wrote like Highland Daughters, Highland Grandsons and all the In-Laws - so, with any luck, there will be a lot to follow.

Worth a credit? Good strong characters and an interesting plot all lead to a yummy listen so it's a YES.
