Publisher's Summary

A bold, seductive laird meets his passionate match in a scintillating Highland romance from New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands
Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue - definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband...until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she's far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.
She has an angel's looks, a warrior's temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he's more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.

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

This was a story that was full of irrelevant details that caused it to be slow moving. I was actually expecting the author to provide details on how to walk..I put my right foot ahead of me , then I put the left foot, then I put the right foot again..etc.
There was the scene on how to have a bath, wash your hair first, then your body, so the water is clean enough to rinse your hair....bathing 101 is not what makes for a romance.
The heroine Sade, is shot with an arrow and there is a discussion regarding what type of arrow she was shot with and the process, pull it out or push it through...yes, this was an actual discussion that took 6 minutes.
This book was a series of sex scenes with filler in between.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing from this author

What aspect of Penelope Nederhorst’s performance would you have changed?

Not much. She was good, but some of the male voices sounded the same, so it was a little difficult keeping track of who was speaking.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All of the above and a bit of revulsion. There is a scene where the heroine is shot with an arrow in the breast. This allows the author to have her dress cut away from the area so that a 9 year old boy can see her breast. At the same time her 7 brothers ( as 2 or 3 just aren't enough for this farce) can also view her naked breast. While she is bleeding the brothers discuss how she has "filled out" and that she has a good figure. If the author wants to add this creepy scene in a romance, then I will not be listening to any further books from her. This scene made my skin crawl. I really have to question some of the reviewers that indicated it was a wonderful book.

Any additional comments?

This book was a farce and just a lot of filler. I wasted a credit on it.
The author uses a classic fable, " the scorpion and the frog", 3 times which takes up a lot of time. There is also an apple dessert that gets a lot of mention, but I tried to find out what it was, but could not. I hate when an author uses such an obscure reference so the reader has no idea of what the importance of the detail is to the story.
I am so angry at the reviewers that gave this awful book such good comments and a high rating. It is not worth the time. I guess it was better to use a credit instead of paying the purchase price, and that's the best thing I can say about this book!

Can I give more than 5 ⭐'s please?

I always enjoy Lynsay Sands. However THIS one was exceptional! The characters are so well crafted as individuals that I not only felt as if I know them but it was as if they leapt off the page at me (or out of the earphones as it were). And I rarely get stumped by " whodunit" stories but this one kept me guessing and enjoying it!
Yes this was one incredibly well developed, expertly written, remarkably enjoyable and totally captivating tale!

NARRATOR : Another hit! There is not a single thing to be improved upon in this extremely skilled performance!

CREDITWORTHY ? Oh Yes! Without a doubt! if you want a not typical medieval scottish historical romance full of all the brawny highlanders you could ask for and a HEA, then this is it!

HEAT FACTOR: Ouch! Definitely a scorcher!!

***review edit: third listen and still love it!
