Cailin MacDougal has lived a dangerous life being the adopted daughter of vampire Broderick "Rick" MacDougal, so she had no choice but to learn to fight in order to protect herself. However, such behavior is hardly desirable in a dutiful wife who's supposed to embroider and run a household. This aggressive side of her behavior should be easy enough to hide from her betrothed...shouldn't it?
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.

Just Keeps Getting Better!
I personally like listening to audiobooks especially when the narrator is excellent at reading the story which David Monteath is! He has a smooth sexy voice and gives the characters depth and detail! I hear the emotions the characters are feeling and he is awesome with accents.
I personally love when James explains to Cailin that he loves her just the way she is knife wielding and feisty as opposed to being someone she is not just to portray the good wife he should have.
I LOVED everything about David Monteath's performance! His voice is perfect for narrating books. His voice is extremely sexy and he is talented when it comes to the different accents and conveying the emotions the characters are feeling.
I can't just pick one moment in the book that moved me. I loved how James and Cailin had a special bond from when they were young and promised to each other that remained when they met again when Cailin grew up.
Ms. Burnz outdid herself with the telling of this story. I actually enjoyed it better then the first book and I can not wait to listen to Midnight Hunt!
