This is the third book of the MacKenzie brothers. This is the story of Amelia, who is a determined spitfire and Knox who is a strong and honorable Laird. They meet after Amelia and her nephew escape from Edinborough Scotland and end up at the Laird's land. The story evolves into a tender, sensual, and tension filled love story with light adventure.
The narration was really good. I liked her unique way of pausing and emphasizing when she's reading.
If you enjoy sweet, feel good romances like me...then this is for you. (FYI: this book is written in the first person.....so if you don't particularly enjoy books written like that, you may want to skip this one.)

Where does Highlander Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
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.
Who was your favorite character and why?
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.
Which scene was your favorite?
Boat scene...the one not in the water. Yep, listen or read the book, and you will understand. Yummy, with a taste of determination.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A gambler to the core? Not sure
Any additional comments?
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.
