Publisher's Summary

Heir to the most notorious clan in the Highlands, Hugh MacIain hides his identity while imprisoned in the bowels of Fort William's hell. Aye, this braw warrior has endured horrors that should have seen him dead, though now it appears it's the bloody flux that will send him to Satan's fire.
Optimistic, competent, and captivating, Charlotte Hill takes pity on the fevered prisoner sprawled atop a cot in the fort's surgery. When finally the Highlander opens his eyes, he seizes her heart with a pained stare. Truly, this is no commoner - but in 1692, a warrior loyal to the Jacobite cause and the daughter of a government colonel may as well be worlds apart.
After his escape, Hugh snatches his chance to woo the lass, until disaster strikes. While war and lust for vengeance force Charlotte further from Hugh's arms, the couple's romance seems aimlessly adrift on the open sea. Before they sail too far apart, can the tender love of an English lady coax a determined Highlander from his path of revenge?

Outstanding.

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

This is the first performance I've listened to of Joel's. He has a very nice Scottish brogue.

Any additional comments?

There are stories and then there are those rare few that touch your mind, heart and soul. This is such a story. This amazing book by Amy Jarecki left me in deep thought. It stirred me to the depths of my sole. I did not know the story of Glencoe, prior to listening to this book. This author weaves fact and fiction together beautifully. It is a history lesson come to life, with historical romance blended in for the avid romance reader. Do not pass this story by. The facts of Glencoe were well written and tugged on my heart. The fictional romance made me want jump back in time and find this man. It is that good. A must read.

A bit tedious

Although the historic portion of this book was interesting, the romance portion was tedious. it started out good enough, but too many turn of events get tiring. I realize history has many horrid realities, I don't really like to read about it for entertainment. I read romance for entertainment. If you feel the same way, this book may not be for you.
I did not feel the narrator gave Hugh a strong voice which some times made him sound floundering and indecisive. And sometimes even like an elderly man.
