Publisher's Summary

She'll put her life on the line for him....
When Akira Ayres finds the brawny Scot with a musket ball in his thigh, the healer has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to save his life. Even if it means fleeing with him across the Highlands to tend to his wounds while English redcoats are closing in. Though Akira is as fierce and brave as any of her clansmen, even she's intimidated by the fearsome, brutally handsome Highlander who refuses to reveal his name.
Yet she can never learn his true identity.
Geordie knows if Akira ever discovers he's the Duke of Gordon, both her life and his will be forfeit in a heartbeat. The only way to keep the lass safe is to ensure she's by his side day and night. But the longer he's with her, the harder it becomes to think of letting her go. Despite all their differences, despite the danger, he will face death itself to make her his.

Cinderella like

What did you like best about this story?

The Duke is a good man who uses his wealth and power to help the less fortunate. True love knows no class distinction.


Any additional comments?

The male audio reader sounded much too old for the Duke. This detracted from visualizing the 33 years old Geordie.

A good story

Apparently this book wasn't totally historically accurate, but that isn't why I read highlander romance novels.
I really liked this story, a Cinderella like story, when commoner Akira saves the Duke from an injury on the battle field. Then on the run from the red coats. Through these dire circumstances, feelings start between Akira and the Duke, but since they had no future as they weren't in the same class, but can they resist their attraction.
This was an interesting love story, so much going against them can they find happiness.
My complaint about this book was the male reader. He sounded like a crotchety old man, not suitable for then younger woman. But it didn't diminish the story too much for me.
