After being away at fencing school for seven years, James Knightly has returned as a master swordsman, ready to captain his own ship and finally wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. What he finds waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on extracting revenge by threatening the family James holds most dear - the MacDougals.
Broderick MacDougal is lured away from his family with the promise of finally learning a way to protect those he loves from his clan enemy, Angus Campbell. Broderick knows he's headed for a trap, but the bait is too tempting to resist...and he unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost of such redemption, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for...his wife, Davina.
Listener advisory: This story contains some explicit love scenes, described using graphic and direct language. This story also contains explicit, nail-biting scenes of violence and sword fights.

Redux: Still good!
I read this book and enjoyed it thoroughly so I was very happy to try the audiobook when it became available. I have never been a fan of audiobooks, but I loved this one. I found myself hearing things in the story that I missed when I read it. David Monteath, the narrator, does a magnificent job with the voices and accents.
Even if you have read the book previously and especially if you have not, I recommend you add this to your Wish List. Thoroughly enjoyable!

YaaaOK this Audiobook IS AMAZING
Any additional comments?
I wish I could do as many accents as David Monteath. It would certainly make talking to myself more interesting.🤔
Gaaawd friends, these books are so good -- so thorough -- they're practically standalones. Not that I recommend reading them out of order, but hey, I've been known to do that a time or two. Besides, who needs to read when you have the man of many accents crooning in your ear? David could voice over every actor in "Outlander" for cryin' out loud. #JamieOhJamie!
You all know that David is my favorite Scottish narrator, and Midnight Captive is a magnificent showcase of all of David's talents. His voice is a production. He's all the parts of a choir working simultaneously and harmoniously to engulf your mind in this beautiful story Arial Burnz has created.
Broderick's deep voice. James' baritone. Angus and his rat-like subordinates?... YaaaOK are there any vocal inflections this man can't do? (No.)
Let's not even talk about David's ability to make me cry. I'm talking level 5 hurricane here. How does it make you feel knowing you made a girl CRY, David?! No man should have this kind of power. The perfect lilts and his inhuman ability to narrate 112 different voices is the engine behind this steam boat chug-a-lugging all over my heart.
