Publisher's Summary

The ruthless enforcer of Scotland's most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell will use any means necessary to vanquish lawlessness and unrest among the feuding Highland clans. Seduction is a game as easily played as subterfuge, but when Jamie poses as a suitor to a rival clan's daughter in order to expose treason, the line between duty and pleasure is suddenly blurred. Ebony-haired, ruby-lipped Caitrina Lamont defies him, denies him, and arouses him like no other woman. Caitrina has no intention of forsaking her beloved father and doting brothers for a husband-especially a hated Campbell. But Jamie's raw, sensual strength and searing kiss melt her resistance. When her idyllic world is shattered, Caitrina's only hope to save her clan lies in the arms of Jamie Campbell, the enemy she holds accountable for its ruin. Can their tenuous truce, born in the velvet darkness of passionate nights, forge a love as strong as the sword that rules the Highlands?

Critic Reviews

"Sexy, full of action, and realistically violent, this story of 17th-century Scotland touches on issues of family loyalty and duty and expertly kicks off McCarty's back-to-back Clan Campbell trilogy." ( Library Journal)

I am so torn, I loved it, I hated it

Okay the love had a lot to do with the narrator, his voice of Jaimie Cambell....oh my! Deep, seductive, with a Scottish brogue...oh the shivers! I also liked that this wasn't a typical highlander story...there was a reluctant woman who didn't want to get married....but just as I thought we would get to the marriage sooner rather than later all heck broke loose. The hero waited months to find his would be bride again and again was refused...with REALLY good reason.

Now the part I is it that the author painted a strong independent woman yet she can't make up her mind about anything! She wants him, she doesn't, she needs him, she doesn't, she loves him, she doesn't, she trusts him, she doesn't.....UGH!!!! I wanted to strangle the heroine myself, she was annoying right up to and including the final chapter. I don't see myself getting book 2 unless it goes in the $4.95 wasn't totally not worth reading but I wouldn't do it again.

Fanstastic Hero/ So-So Heroine

I love a good Highlander book, so when I read the reviews about this book I was thrilled to start reading it. But after 12 hours of this book, I can safely say that I have never read about a more infuriating heroine in my life. She constantly makes the same mistakes over and over again. It gotten to a point that you can predict the outcome because you knew she was going to make a mistake, again. Caitrina never gives Jaime the benefit of doubt, which is sad because Jamie is really a good man. He makes this book worth listening to. At first I understood Caitrina position and sympathized with her but after Jamie kept proving his worth to her I started to get to a point where I didn’t want Caitrina with Jaime. She didn’t deserve him. So is this book worth a listening, if you have nothing else to listen to give it a shot.
