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