Retaliating in kind, he captures the daughter of his enemy, planning to bargain with the devil.

But the shadows hold secrets…now only the love of her reluctant champion can save the MacKinnon's Bride.

If you download this captivating listen then prepare yourself to be engulfed, entrapped and entwined as a riveting love story slowly but deliciously emerges about two lost souls who start off as enemies but eventually, and thankfully, grasp at love.

As you're whisked away to a heartbreaking scene within a bedroom inside a Castle in Scotland then, a few years later, to a Lake outside the Castle walls of 1124 England, it's there you'll meet the H/H, a vulnerable, yet strong, but mentally abused and scarred, Lady Page and her kidnapper who's a much loved Laird and a devout Father handsome Iain MacKinnon. He is also mentally damaged by the events of his past but who's life is about to become drastically and dramatically changed forever.

You can't help but empathize with the H/H who have been wounded by life's challenges but, as you get swept up in the unfolding story that's sprinkled with humor and a glorious use of both the old English and Gaelic language, you become immersed in the first tentative steps of mutual attraction. This is fought and denied but then the inevitable tender sizzling awareness, then passion and.... eventually (sigh) love follows. Two not too descriptive sex scenes but very touching nonetheless.

This charming story isn't filled with a lot of pulse-pounding action, descriptive references or historical references BUT what it is filled with is emotion in the form of secrets, kidnapping, murder, deception, intrigue, hidden feelings, likeable characters, a loveable sweet little boy, betrayal and, as the Warriors huddle around the campfire, a concealed enemy lurks and slowly plans his evil revenge.

Braden Wright has, thankfully, narrated all TAC's books because he brings to life each scene, each character and his deep Scottish brogue for Iain is just a pleasure to listen to and I'm one grateful fan.

Worth a credit? Any historical romance fan who can't resist a loveable handsome Highland brute in a kilt (phew and sigh, my library's filled with them) then this one's for you and definitely me.... so ooow aye, 'twas a bonny book n well wurrth a wee credit.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Two Torn Hearts One Fun Adventure

This book really surprised me. I wasn't expecting this story to be a captivating, emotional, funny and romantic....but it was.

The main characters are both very emotionally hurt individuals. Iain is a tortured romantic soul and Page is a sassy smart-mouthed wench. When they meet they are drawn together both emotionally and physically then set out on a journey to overcome their insecurities and find love and family. The minor characters in this book added so much emotion and humor (it's really unfair to call them minor). The narrator did a great job with this book. Hope he reads the next book in the series.

This adventure has hostages, murder, romance, secrets, anguish, lies, silly nudity, and just cute fun. I am looking forward to book 2.
