Publisher's Summary

Bartholomew Yancy never expected to inherit an English earldom and had no intention of marrying. Now, the Earl of Ramsbury and last in his line, he's obligated to resign his position as England's War Secretary, find a wife, and produce an heir. Only one woman holds the least appeal: Isobel Ferguson, an exquisite Scotswoman. Brought to Scotland to mediate between feuding clans, he doggedly woos her.
Disillusioned with men pursuing her for her attractiveness, rather than her unusual intellect, Isobel has all but abandoned any hope of finding a husband in the Highlands. Not only does she believe Yancy no different than her other suitors, he's a notorious rake. She's been told he's practically betrothed. Therefore, his interest in her cannot possibly be honorable, and so she shuns his attentions.
When Isobel is mistakenly abducted by a band of rogue Scots, Yancy risks his life to rescues her. To salvage her compromised reputation, her brother and father insist she marry him. Yancy readily agrees, but Isobel - knowing full well she's fated for spinsterhood by refusing his offer - won't be coerced into marriage.

An exciting story of drama and romance

Where does Virtue and Valor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. Not only for the way it was narrated but the storyline. It had humour, romance and danger.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Isobel, she was an intelligent and brave lady. She also cared for others.

What about David Monteath’s performance did you like?

His narration was excellent, the different voices he used for the characters and his voice just suited the story. It all just flowed perfectly together.

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

Oh yes, I definitely found some of the turns of phrase very amusing and laughed out loud on a few occasions. It made my family ask what I was listening to!

Any additional comments?

This was an extremely enjoyable story, but then there hasn't been a Colette Cameron story I haven't enjoyed. However this was one of the best and I found myself reluctant to stop listening when it was time to sleep. I received a free copy and voluntarily posted this review. This is my honest review.

OK read and barely OK narration..

This was a fairly decent book, the usual angst and the usual misunderstand/lie. One little liar told the heroine that the hero was engaged to her and Isobel believed her so she treated Yancy like crap for YEARS. It was about 95% before she found out the truth. If it hadn’t been for Angus and Duncan mistakenly kidnapping Isobel this would have been kind of boring.

I did like Yancy and Isobel, as well as Harcourt and Ewan, Lord and Lady McTavish and the giant twins, Gregor and Alasdair. And the bad guys were totally disgusting: long stringy hair, big bushy beards, rotted teeth and needing a bath something-awful, at one point Isobel covered her nose because she thought something had died in the woods but it was just the smell of MacHardy’s men. Yuck!

There was some nice desire in this and 1 fairly discriptive sex scene at about 98%, and the only swearing was simple British swearwords.

As to the narration: He was just ok. The women were good and some of the men were too but the hero, Yancy, and the Duke of Harcourt were just too effeminate for me.
