Framed for a crime he did not commit, Duncan Campbell, the illegitimate son of a chieftain, has returned to the Highlands, determined to clear his name after ten years in exile. He is drawn to the unforgettable sensual beauty of Jeannie Gordon, the headstrong girl who once pledged him her love, gave him her innocence, and then betrayed him. Now, in the glow of the moonlight, she defiantly shows Duncan the bad end of a pistol.
Jeannie is stunned to discover that the broad-chested brigand she just shot is the rogue who broke her heart years ago. No longer a starry-eyed girl but a woman with dangerous secrets, Jeannie cannot forgive Duncan's shattering mistrust of her - nor can she sign his death warrant by turning him in. Soon passion flares hotter and bolder than before, sealing a fate the one-time lovers can no longer deny. Caught up in a deadly game of murder and intrigue, Jeannie is willing to risk everything for a man and a love she vows never to lose again.

A different leading male character entirely!
Highland pleasures series.
Deep, sexy, well inflected.
Particular scenes were not the problem. It was Duncan's character in general that was reprehensible.
Authors, if you are going to make your lead male characters moody, disloyal, forever leaving, forever thinking the worst of your female characters, you had better be sure you have the skill to COMPLETELY redeem them. I got so sick of seeing Jeannie suffer because Duncan COULD NOT develop any kind of resolve to stay with her! Not sexy. Not admirable. Not romantic to be an angry, always-leaving kind of guy!
Another great listen!
