Publisher's Summary

Forbidden passion has never been more dangerous - or more irresistible - in the first novel of best-selling author Amanda Scott’s spellbinding Highland series.
Scotland, 1750. In the aftermath of the Jacobite rebellion, Maggie MacDrumin vows to keep fighting to liberate her people. But the intrepid Scotswoman is risking her life for a dangerous cause. When her latest mission lands her in a London courtroom on a trumped-up larceny charge, she has only one hope of survival. Enlisting the aid of Edward Carsley, the powerful fourth Earl of Rothwell, is a two-edged sword. The seductive aristocrat who awakens treacherous desire is her clan’s mortal enemy - a man she can never trust.
Edward will do whatever it takes to quell another bloody uprising. But how can he fight his passion for the rebellious Highland beauty in his safekeeping? As their lives come under siege, Maggie lays claim to the one thing Edward vowed never to surrender: His heart.

Highland Fling......Don't give up on this one!

Highland fling is a well written story that has plenty of history and a romance that is sweet and unforced.

The main characters, Maggie and Edward, are from very different cultures and backgrounds. They learn how to challenge each other and how to resolve family and society issues together. The minor characters add a lot of interest and depth to the story. This book had just enough mystery, intrigue, and romance to keep my attention.

My only negative is that this book felt slow paced for the first half. Because the beginning devotes so much time to character development and history it feels sluggish. The narrator reads a bit slow too which adds to the slow pace feel. Thankfully, the second half speeds up and reveals a great story. I'm glad I didn't give up.

If you enjoy true Historical stories give this one a try. Just make sure you listen on a day when you can sit back, relax, don't give up, then enjoy

Truly liked this book...however

Loved this series. It is very well written and holds your interest throughout. The characters are all interesting in their own right.
THE NARRATOR...was excellent. Her narration was very well done and voices excellent.

MY ONLY comment on this series is I would like just a little more steam in my romance books. Just a wee bit more!!!

DO I RECOMMEND THIS series...absolutely!

A well written story with good plot.

A well written story, the first in the Highland Trilogy and which was excellently narrated by Carolyn Bonnyman as usual
