Publisher's Summary

When Raelynd Schellden and her sister are caught in the stables with the notorious McTiernay twins, her father sees not scandal, but opportunity. The future of his clan is uncertain, and a double engagement - even under false pretenses - will lend security to his people and protect his beloved daughters from power-mad fools. But Raelynd's designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother, Crevan, a man born to lead. Though bound by honor and committed to his sworn duty, Crevan cannot resist a taste of Raelynd's crimson lips when offered - and then another and another - until the unlikely couple is entangled in both a public deception and each other's hearts.

An enjoyable listen 4 brothers down & only 3 to go

In this book we get not one but two handsome McTiernay Highland brothers - Craig and Crevan with their muscled bodies, kilts and broad tanned shoulders (mind get out of the gutter) ok I'm back.... but this is mainly Crevan's story and once I started listening to it, it hooked me in and I just couldn't stop listening.

Two sets of twins, the McTiernays and the Shelldyn girls Raeland and Merlel who have been spoilt rotten by their loving Father but they all get manipulated by one person or another into a false engagement with humorous, touching, aggravating, annoying yet entertaining and sweet results. There's a male Cousin Cyric who doesn't care which of the girls he'll marry but there's a surprise or two waiting for him.

Crevan isn't your typical Alpha hero but your heart goes out to him as he's misunderstood, insecure, has a stammer and feels he's not good enough for the girl he loves. But, with the help, guidance and interference of big brother Conor, Laurel and their children (book1) things could work out for the six main characters involved whose flawed characters all mature and bloom in this well-written, but unbelievable plot which ends in romance and two marriages..... but exactly who marries who is a mystery until the very end.

Worth a credit? Again, Ms Sinclair jumps from the story to the Epilogue and totally misses the best bit but despite that this has been another entertaining listen which was worth a credit.

Not a Fan

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story line was lacking. It was difficult to keep track of which twin was speaking.

What could Michele Sinclair have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Break it into two books to focus on one set of twins at a time.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

Adam Paul would have been much better.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really, I doubt I will give it a second listen which I usually do.
