Publisher's Summary

Descended of the legendary sons of MacAlpin, Iain MacKinnon refuses to bow to the English. When his young son is captured by a minion of the English king, the fierce Scottish chieftain vows to stop at nothing to secure the lad's return. Retaliating in kind, he captures the daughter of his enemy, planning to bargain with the devil.
FitzSimon's daughter has lived her entire life in the shadow of the man she called father - yet never would she have imagined he would forsake his only daughter. Even as Page blames her captor for welching on a contract with her father, she suspects the truth. But the shadows hold secrets…now only the love of her reluctant champion can save the MacKinnon's Bride.
This book begins The Highland Brides series.

Outstanding!

Any additional comments?

I loved this book when I read it a few years ago, but listening to Braden Wright narrate was something totally different! I hated for it to end...he had the perfect deep sexy voice you would expect for Ian...I loved this audio version & would love to see more of the Highland Brides series in audio...with Braden narrating, of course!

Fantastic Highlander Romance

What made the experience of listening to The MacKinnon's Bride the most enjoyable?

Very well narrated and captured attention immediately.

Any additional comments?

In Scotland 1124, the Hero, Iain MacKinnon, living with past tragedies of his wife’s death, is betrayed by one of his own clan and his very young son is turned over to the English to be held as hostage. The powerful Scottish Highlander will stop at nothing to retrieve his son and bring him back home. So what does he do, he captures the enemy’s daughter and intends to trade hostages.

Page, the heroine, has been rejected by her father all her life and is paid absolutely no attention or love from him. But never did she dream that her father would deny bringing her home and return the highlander’s son to him.

When Iain learns that FitzSimons will not make the trade he takes another avenue to ensure the return of his son. Although he succeeds he learns the father doesn’t want the daughter back and will in no way allow her to return home, or he will kill her. Iain simply cannot understand how any father could feel so towards his offspring. So he gives orders that none of his warriors are to tell Page what is happening and that he plans on taking her with him to his home.

What follows, with Page not being told her father doesn’t want her, is her making any kind of trouble she can to escape. Her attempts are filled with humor and I found myself laughing along at her antics. This story is shares humor, romance, mystery, intrigue, and passion with the reader. The interaction between the hero and heroine captures and enthralls.

I have actually read this book many times, with each time seeming like the first time, and have it in print, on kindle, and on audio, which is fantastic, as well. It has found a permanent home on my keeper shelf! I very highly recommend reading this as well as the books that follow in the series, or anything else written by the fabulously talented Tanya Anne Crosby!

Female voices were grim but the male voices?! Wow!

Where does The MacKinnon's Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'd put it in the middle. Though the story is good and I love the male voices, the female voices were dreadful. Those lowered the caliber of the audiobook for me. I would definitely give his narration a go again though because it wasn't completely annoying (only because of the hot male voices and hardly any women in the book). However if Braden Wright was paired with a female voice actress I would definitely give it a go- obviously providing I liked the plot line.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The MacKinnon's Bride?

The escape attempt and the naked chase! lol. And of course the yellow crocuses. :)

Which character – as performed by Braden Wright – was your favourite?

Definitely Iain. I absolutely hated his rendition of female voices. It was awful. However his male voices were hot! I would be dismayed with Page's voice and then Iain's would make it all better! Insert tingle here! lmao!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some parts made me laugh, no crying although there was some frustration at times. Sometimes I felt we were repeating dialogue and inner battles we had already had; and they would happen at times where you desperately wanted to see what happened next.

Any additional comments?

Two things I felt this book needed was more suspense for the 'baddie'. In some of my favourite books, you have an idea about the villain but then theres a plot twist that throws you for a loop and you like "wow". I guessed pretty much straight away who the antagonist of the story was and then the author admitted it and named him before the characters figured it out. I felt that could have been done better.The second, and this is purely a pet peeve- if a story has a prologue or an ending like this story did it NEEDS to have an epilogue even if (because this is a series) its a month ahead. I really wanted to hear Malcom call Page mammy and find out if she fell pregnant straight away like Iain wanted. Overall though, it was an enjoyable story.

Dreadful 'Scots' Narrator

whilst the story maintained my interest, the narrator's accent was annoying, wavering between American and Irish and false English. A Scottish tale should be told in a believable accent.

Such a great story!!!!!!!

Aaaaaawwwwwwwww this is SUCH a lovely story - not all froth and bubble, it’s a meaty, sultry tale that absolutely captivates!! The only downside is, as mentioned by others, the narrator’s female voice which is grating but his male voices are overall quite good, with Ian’s being particularly ovary melting!!!!
