Publisher's Summary

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn-and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons-and embrace a love that means more than revenge or land.

Steamy as only a Maya Banks can be!!!

I liked this story a lot. It has a lot of yummy Highlanders and strong women. This book is the first in a trilogy. Its about three brothers who's hearts were harden by loss. So we know what will happen they will find the women that will allow them to find love and what it really means. That is every romance. But what a true romance fan loves is how the characters get there. The author did a great job in telling the older brother's story. The narrator made it every entertaining.

It can be graphic so if that is not what you are into then don't read or listen to Maya Banks books. I think she is a good story teller with a lot spicy.

There are some fight scenes and highlander politics which I thought gave the book more depth.

I hope audible will record the other books. I would like to know what will happen next.

I hope you agree and enjoy:0)

Gotta love these Highlanders

I'm not a huge fan of the Highland Romance novel but Maya Banks is one of my favorite authors so I had to take a chance. This one did not disappoint. It's your typical dominate/overprotective male hero and the young naive woman with lots of steamy sex thrown in the mix.
If you enjoy these Highland Romance books then you will definitely enjoy this one too. My only complaint is the all too quick ending. All the action just ended rather abruptly. Otherwise this was an enjoyable listen.

4 stars all around
