Although Audible hasn't listed it yet this is book 5 of The Highland Pleasures series and phew ..... what a book it was.

You have a very damaged Highlander - in walks Elliot who was mentally and physically tortured in India and who has returned home to the Highlands to try to stop the wedding of his childhood sweetheart however he is barely but desperately clinging on to his sanity. Juliana is about to be married but her heart has really always belonged to her childhood sweetheart Elliot - then fate steps in and gives the two another chance.

If you're a historical romance lover then this book will move you, excite you, sadden you, thrill you .... but above all, in the end it will give you that 'Ahhhhhhhh' feeling that comes after finishing a book that has ticked each and every box. This plot has passion, romance, sex, kilts, drama, funny moments, sad times, a couple of sub plots but above all there's a broken man clawing his way back to life and a woman willing to help him.

This could easily be a stand alone listen but the others in this series have each been a really great listen as JA's brilliant writing brings to life her fantastic characters and, as you mentally play each scene, you too will be drawn into a bygone era.

Worth a credit? Well that's a billowing YES across a clear blue sky.

I lost interest...

I wanted to like this book because I like the author's style and the narrator is very good. But unfortunately About two thirds of the book in I lost interest completely. There was no conflict at all. It was just pretty monotonous. The hero is an ex soldier dealing with PTSD. The heroine was stood up at the altar. The hero happened to be there and in a very casual conversation decided to marry her. The story was hot but nothing interesting happened. I guess it was missing the Mackenzie spice of the previous books. I'm returning this one.
