Captain Robbie Grant has always had a way with the lasses, but his warrior's heart is too married to the battlefield to seek out a wife. Then Robbie saves a mysterious beauty from a Norse attacker. He knows little about Caralyn Crauford beyond that she has a damaged past and two wee daughters, but he volunteers to bring her and the lasses to a priory where they will be safe from the oncoming battle. The last thing he expects is for Caralyn to give him a night of unrestrained passion and then disappear. But when she does, he is determined to find her.
After spending years under the thumb of men who cared only about her comeliness, Caralyn no longer knows who she is or why she matters. The only thing she cares about is the welfare of her daughters. But when Captain Robbie Grant enters her life, she dares to want something more. At first she's just grateful to the handsome Highlander, but his noble nature and kind heart endear her to him. The night they spend together only confuses her more, but Caralyn has no time to sort through her feelings because her past rears its ugly head and threatens to ruin her.

Wonderfully engaging story of love overcoming all
action-packed; entertaining; satisfying
Robbie coming to the rescue repeatedly were all memorable and unique.
The night that Caralyn visited Robbie in the priory was my favorite. (1) and the scene where young Loki helps defend Caralyn from the sinister Malcolm when he attacks and attempts to kidnap Caralyn and Gracie and Ashlyn from the highlands cottage by the loch. (2)
Many touching moments within this wonderful book. Made me happy, made me sad, made me mad.... something for everyone.
I especially enjoyed the Antony Ferguson narration. Very well done.
Would've been better if I read it
This book had me rolling my eyes a lot.....for example a 2-3 year old toddler will never ask their mother "do you love you, mama?" It's not even a concept in a toddlers mind. There were a lot of situations that were very unrealistic. The heroine fell in love within the first day or two of meeting her rescuer. :|
Also, a secondary character in the story was very bold and all about women's rights and equality......in medieval Scotland?.....and the men were totally okay with it.
I've come to find that the majority of male narrators make every female character sound like their helpless, ridiculous, or stuck up valley girl. They obviously do a fantastic job voicing the masculine highlanders, and I certainly couldn't complain about that. ;)
I really wanted to like this book and I tried, it didn't feel like the characters had enough time to develop before they were already in love.
