They call him Wee William. Though he stands nearly seven feet tall, with arms and legs the size of tree trunks and hands as big as buckets, there is nothing wee about him. His scowl alone is enough to make most men's bones rattle with fear. And women, rather than swooning, tend to run in the opposite direction.
The giant Highlander is a self-proclaimed bachelor who has sworn for years that there isn't a woman in all of Scotland worth shaving his beard for, and for good reason. Years ago, after a bonny young lass broke his heart and left his dignity in shreds, he swore never again to put it in such peril. As a testament to his sincerity, he vowed never again to shave his beard.
Then he met her. In a single heartbeat, Wee William was lost. Forever lost to a brown-haired beauty with gray-blue eyes brimming with tears - a woman in need.
On her wedding night, Nora realized she made a terrible mistake. She had agreed to wed Horace Crawford when he promised her younger siblings would live with them. He soon broke his word and sent them away. Horace soon proved a harsh, cruel husband who owned no heart, nor a shred of decency.
On a dark, cold winter's night, when Nora had almost given up hope of ever saving her siblings and herself, God answered her prayers in a most peculiar way. Through a band of fierce Highlanders on a mission to retrieve small but priceless treasures. Treasures she had unwittingly harbored.
Little did the Highlanders know they would return with more than those treasures - they would return with Wee William's Woman.

unforgettable, the best one yet
Oh I definitely would! Wee William is my fave character in the whole series and I waited for his audio for seems like forever LOL I think this is the best performance of Brad Wills yet of any I heard so far.
There is no comparison, each book/audio has a charm and story that keeps it unique, and this one is definitely unique.
Where do I start? Loved the deep voice, the flexibility of switching from character to character, be that woman, man, child, old or young, English or Scottish accents, I wondered sometimes if there is really only his voice. The passion with which he tells the tale is incredible, pulled me in and didn't let go.
Yes, it was, alas real life interferes sometimes, I also wanted to drag it out so it will last longer.
I loved the book when I read it, but now having listened to it narrated by the incredible voice of Brad Wills, Wee William is burrowed in my heart for good. There will be more times where I will be listening to this audio. Thank you Ms. Tisdale for a great story and Mr. Wills for telling it in such a wonderful and unforgettable way.
