Publisher's Summary

How does a woman tell her betrothed that she murdered her first husband? Shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands, American heiress Elise Kingston quietly plans revenge for the deaths of her daughter and the brother who sacrificed his life to save her. When Marcus MacGregor, Marquess of Ashlund, returns to his Highland home to discover a stunning American woman has been taken in by his clan, his attraction is instant and he resolves to make her his - no matter what secret she's keeping. Elise is shocked by her need for Marcus and, too late, discovers that her feelings make him a target of her enemy - a man powerful enough to destroy even a Scottish nobleman.

frustrating and disappointing but okay ...

This book has such amazing potential for greatness... but sadly falls far short of acceptable. What there was of it was very enjoyable and even surprising. Yet the constantly skipping from what felt like a unfinished sentence to the next disconnected one that I found myself rewinding constantly to see what I had missed. Days, weeks, months passed between once sentence and the next often leaving so much unanswered that it was verrry confusing! It seemed that every time something started to develope that was proving would be quite interesting it was suddenly far in the future and often there was no knowledge of how that had happened or how that moment resolved. An entire subplot was given literally two or three sentences to (not) develope and was forgotten until it was needed to explain something further on in the story, not having been given the weight it needed to substantiate the importance that that little would carry much importance further on. There was such potential for something outstanding to be written into existence.The storylines that were merely teased at with the promise of something special and interesting and even exciting were merely hinted at . It felt like a half written outline with the ideas there but never fleshed out. Incredibly disapointing!

NARRATOR: Marian Hussey was the one and only saving grace to the experience which is / was this book. She is a remarkable performer with perfect accents perfect everything.

CREDITWORTHY? No, not really. l enjoyed what there was of the story. And the plot was very interesting but...

HEAT FACTOR: STEAMY!

3 hours to long and a scattered story. Sigh...

Well this story started out good, then got dull, then it picked up again and then got dull, then the ending was just whatever. This story seemed so disconnected to me. Found myself re winding and wondering what is going on? how did they get there? who is that? What the heck just happened?

The story line and plot from the book description sounded good but just lacked good story telling. It did not flow well at all.

The heroine was just okay but just a bit too stubborn with her secret. I didn't find the chemistry very real or convincing. It felt like it was just forced.
There was nothing great or exciting about the hero either. There is a few sex scenes, not erotica, So the book is not rated G.

I just felt the author thoughts rambled and scattered in her mind as she was writing this story, hence the story not flowing very well at all.

There is a lot of dialogue through out the book so that was good. I think if this book had been shortened by about 3 hours and edited for unnecessary scenes it would have been quite enjoyable.

As for the narration, that is exactly why I bought the book, Marian Hussey is one of my favorites and she did a fantastic job. The men sound like men, everyone's accent sounds great. Her reading voice is great. She read with emotion and I just love listening to her.

I can't say I would recommend this story. I can say I highly recommend the narrator.

Luckily I got this as a free read with my KU and 1.99 audible.
