No Surprises.

I actually liked the “talented healer” storyline of this book. The Heroine, Aileanna, is a strong woman who has the power to heal and is sought after by other clans because of her ability. The Hero, Toran, is a powerful Laird who not only notices Aileanna’s “talent” but her beauty. Although I found this story and the characters interesting it unfortunately is low on excitement and high on predictability. It had glimpses of adventure throughout the book but lacked an inspiring impact.

If you like simple highland romances without surprises (or many twists and turns) then you will probably enjoy this book.

Not very good book and terrible narration..

Any additional comments?

This was an OK read because it really did drag sometimes. I think Aileana’s healing ability was pretty cool but when she wasn’t healing someone the story kind of dragged. Plus, I just knew she was going to do something that would give her the TSTL award. I mean, how could anyone believe anything Colridge had to say? Between the drag of the story and her TSTL moment I had a very hard time with this book.

I did like the secondary characters, though: Senga, Elspie, Jamie, Angus, Ranald and Donal. And I really liked Toran but if I was him I would have dumped her a$$ a long time ago. Geez, she was enough to make him crazy and she didn’t want to listen to anyone’s GOOD advice, and she wondered why Donal didn’t trust her. Using her Voice on Toran should have been the last straw for him. This kind of writing doesn’t do the heroine justice. It makes her look selfish and unable to see anything but herself and what she wants to do. I have to agree completely with TracyJane’s review, there were times that I just thought, “good grief, Aileana, you are a moron,” and when the TSTL came along I almost stopped reading. And why did she remain a captive for 2 years if she were able to make Colridge do whatever she wanted with a Voice suggestion? That was never really explained.

There was some sexual tension in this and some explicit sex.

I gave it 3 stars for all the really likable people.

I borrowed this through KU.

As to the narrator: He didn't really do so well. His male voices were either too gravelly or too high and the women’s voices sounded just like men sometimes. And there was absolutely no emotion.
