Publisher's Summary

Although the English king tried to wrest it away, the Highland Targe - ancient relic and protector of Scottish lands - still lies safely in the hands of clan MacAlpin. But for how long?
Jeanette MacAlpin trained her entire life to become the next Guardian of the Targe, but that duty has now fallen to her cousin Rowan - a duty Rowan can't seem to master. Fearful for her clan's future, Jeanette seeks the solace of a sacred wellspring, and there encounters tawny-skinned Highland warrior Malcolm MacKenzie.
Wounded in battle, Malcolm is desperate to regain the use of his sword arm and strikes a deal with Jeanette. In return for her skills as a healer, Malcolm will advise the MacAlpins in their resistance against the English. And when he can once again swing a blade, he'll return to the ranks of the Scottish army to fulfill his duty as a soldier.
But as passion grows between the golden warrior and the fair-haired healer, duty collides with love. Will they follow their hearts, or will clan loyalties keep them forever apart?

Charming second book in the series

This is the second book in the series "Guardians of the Targe". I would not recommend listening to this book if you haven't listened to the first book "Highlander Betrayed". This series is more of a fantasy type highland romance. The "Powers of the Targe" is actually the centerpiece of the series.

This book builds on the relationship between cousins Rowan and Jeanette and how they deal with Rowan being the Guardian of the Targe. The story delves deeper into the powers they both possess, the battle with the English, their relationships with the clan and their "protectors" (the men in their lives).

I did find it interesting how this series shows women in a more dominant role. The "guardian of the Targe" is in charge of the clan and when she decides to marry, the man has to give up his clan to live with her......interesting concept.

Phil Gigante did a wonderful job narrating this romance. This story isn't a deep historical book but more of a light fantasy that you'd listen to on a lazy day. I will be sure to check out book 3 when it becomes available. .
