Publisher's Summary

Someone would see Ilsabeth Murray Armstrong hang for murder.
When her dagger is found buried in the body of one of the king's men, there is little room for doubt-the perpetrator must pay with her life. But Ilsabeth is no killer, and only one person can help clear her name: Sir Simon Innes, a man so steely and cool that no danger can rattle him…and no woman in distress can sway his heart.
Until now. Simon has spent his life searching for truth in a world fraught with deception. But the hauntingly beautiful fugitive seeking his aid affects him so deeply, he wonders if he can trust the flawless judgment he has always relied on. For all signs point to Ilsabeth's guilt, except one - the unparalleled desire he feels at her slightest touch.
Contains mature themes.

Narrator ruined the book for me

Would you try another book from Hannah Howell and/or Angela Dawe?

I would try another book from Hannah Howell; but, will stay away from Angela Dawe.

Would you be willing to try another book from Hannah Howell? Why or why not?


How could the performance have been better?

The inflection at the end of every sentence got to be so annoying that I thought about ending the audible performance and buying the print version for the kindle and having the text to voice feature read the book for me while driving. The character voices were pretty bad, the timing wasn't bad but not good either.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Highland Protector?

The brothers visiting intentionally meeting her in prison before meeting the brother.
