Publisher's Summary

Fiercely loyal to his older brother, Alaric McCabe leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now he is prepared to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.
An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric's keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer, Alaric must make an impossible choice: Will he betray his blood ties for the woman he loves?

A Great Story

Where does Seduction of a Highland Lass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is right at the top. I have only rated a few books, and this one was good enough for me to rate!


What other book might you compare Seduction of a Highland Lass to and why?

I like the Scottish Highland stories, and this one was like Paula Quinn's series Children of the Mist because Seduction of a Highland Lass was very touching and Paula's are books are touching as well.


Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I have not, but she did such an awesome job. I will definitely trust her narration for another book I may be interested in.


Any additional comments?

I was really moved by Aleric and Keely's story its not quite like any I have ever read. It was so touching and loving and at times heartbreaking, and not to worry it had a very good ending. I have enjoyed reading Maya Banks stories for a while. However, these Highland Series books were very well done and they are my favorite Maya Banks books that I have read or listened to so far. I hope she continues to write stories with a Scottish Highland theme. I also enjoyed the narrator, I thought she did a fabulous job! I will definitely be listening to more books with her narration. I also hope that she does more Scottish Highland themed stories. She was great!I would recommend this book as one of my all time favorites.

Whew!!! Is it hot in here? No? Must this book!

First, let me fan myself and get rid of this burning blush.

This second book in a series about the McCabe brothers and their clan's fight for their land is steamy with a capital S!

Alaric McCabe finds himself torn between loyalty and duty or honor and love. Betrothed to the daughter of another clan by the king in hopes of uniting their clans to strengthen their forces, Alaric is willing to do his duty until an ambush nearly kills him and leaves him for dead. Now almost mortally wounded and helpless, an angel comes to his aid and nurses him back to life. Now his duty is bittersweet and he is forced to make the most difficult decisions of his life. Will he do what his clan needs to secure their lands or will he follow his heart?

This story is well written and gives new meaning to the term "romance" novel. I found my self actually blushing during the loves scenes, which were very well written and quite a bit naughty but fun. I can't wait to read the next story in this series. Banks makes her hero's both steamy and intensely male, making you sigh with wistfulness for days gone by when the term "metrosexual" didn't exist.

The narrator Kirsten Potter's voice is clear and concise with no awkward pauses or breath inhalations I hear on some recordings. Her voice is neither to male or female making it easy for the ear to make the transition from character to character. Her speech is spot on and she never falters or stumbles over the sentences, bravo Ms. Potter, I'm sure its no easy feat. I seriously didn't want it to end.

This is the third book I have listened to by Maya Banks and she is now one of my favorite authors.
