Familiar with heartbreak, Glynis refuses to fall for another handsome scoundrel. Yet when Alex's past sins force an unlikely union, Glynis gives in to temptation and becomes his wife.

Be prepared to be swept away and transported to the Highlands of Scotland as MM paints a vivid picture where the lucky listener can find Medieval Clans, myths, legends and proud Scottish Warriors who believe in fighting for their honor, their fellow Clansmen and, of course, their love.

This expertly written compelling story has everything for us H(Highland)R lovers and starts with an old Seer's predictions that lead to a thrilling plot that includes passion, destiny, intrigue, desire, duty and pride (mmm it was delicious). As Alex, the handsome, virile, fearless, blonde, kilt wearing, claymore weilding Highland hero (oh phew... I'm a gonner!) and Glynis embark on their turbulent journey there's instant attraction and sexual chemistry then Glynis slowly transforms him from being an arrogant 'love em and leave em' scoundrel into a changed man (and yes, he's even more yummy now).

However, along the way the lovers get embroiled in feuding clans, greed, marriage bargains, secrets, suspense and surprises and, as MM seemlessly blends an action-packed thrilling, plot with humour, witty banter, passion, sex, romance and sub plots she then infuses it with a bounty of secondary characters who enrich this multi-layered story. Finally, DP's Scottish brogue, when added to the narration, brings to life the tale so we, the all too willing spectators, can share in the imagery and events held within this book.

Worth a credit? Oh aye it was a bonnie bonnie book an well wirth yer wee credit an I think this cood be a stand alone listen but wen yu've hurd this yur gonna want ta listen ta book 1 too, so dinne waste yur time start there.

- 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"

Philandering Charmer!

I really enjoyed this second book in the series. Even though Alex is a philanderer he is still so charming, sensitive (in a warrior way) and very funny. Glynis was just as delightful. She is no shrinking violet....more of a dandy lion. She was not afraid to speak her mind, as well as, learn from mistakes and move on.

I'm glad they are staying with the same narrator for all the books. He did a nice job.

I do agree with the reviewer 'Candateshia Pafford' about reading book 1 first. There is a lot of prophecy that comes true in book 2 that is quite funny and poignant. If you don't know the prophecies the story will feel flat, leave you a little confused, and you'd miss out on a good laugh.

Looking forward to Duncan's adventure next!
