Deep in the lush Highlands, a powerful laird with everything to lose must risk it all for the lass who storms into his keep - and his heart.
Raised on the debauched margins of society, Amelia Taylor depends upon her quick wit and fiery spirit to survive. When danger closes in on her already precarious home, she flees into the Highlands and finds refuge in the iron-strong circle of Clan Mackenzie. There, her lack of propriety and intriguing beauty draw the attentions of their formidable leader. But to remain safe from pursuit, she must conceal her identity, even if it means deceiving Laird Knox Mackenzie.
A fiercely guarded and staunchly moral warrior, Knox never expected a ravishing stranger like Amelia to reawaken his desires. Yet as their heated confrontations unlock untold passion, temptation proves impossible to resist. So when Amelia's tapestry of lies begins to unravel, the secrets from her dark past threaten both his Clan and a future they can only dare to dream of....

Sweet Tender Story
A good surprise!
One of the better, definitely. Unique story, with differentiated characters, though I wish there was more time devoted to the beginning, before she runs, to give a better feel for the situation, and would have made it less of a fluffy piece.
Amelia. She is a strong protagonist without becoming a shrew. I suppose since it is first person, that might skew my opinion slightly, and she might be a tad of an unreliable narrator, as she views the keep with rose tinted glasses.
Boat scene...the one not in the water. Yep, listen or read the book, and you will understand. Yummy, with a taste of determination.
A gambler to the core? Not sure
This is a rare find, a good historical romance written in first person. I wanted to smack Hamish quite a few times; the author kept telling us he was brilliant, but he was a bit annoying overall, and I did not see how he was anything above the norm. There isn't much detail given on the everyday hardships of the people at the keep, though this might be intentional, to show the protagonist viewing the place as paradise. I wish it were a touch grittier. As it was, it was good, but missing that extra something that would have made it great. The narrator was a nice surprise. Haven't listened to her before, but she did a very good job.
