Summary

After four broken betrothals, Elizabeth Fraser believes her father's political ambitions will keep her from ever finding a husband. Content to be considered on the shelf, Elizabeth would rather be left in peace as one of the queen's ladies in waiting than engage in flirtations that lead nowhere. She never expected one chance encounter months ago would alter the future she had accepted. 

Will Elizabeth give Edward a second chance to prove he wants more than a dalliance?

Edward Bruce, the adopted younger brother of King Robert the Bruce, is tired of fighting the English in Ireland. Loyal to his brother but homesick, Edward returns to Robert's Scottish court in hopes of settling down once more in the Highlands. Edward recognizes the beguiling Lady Elizabeth from a brief meeting that involved one dance and a rushed conversation on the terrace. He still can't believe the rumor she started to protect her friends. Drawn to her dry wit and independent nature, Edward realizes that his new home will require one particular lady of the keep. 

Can Edward prove to his Highland lady that his intentions are sincere before time runs out?

Contains mature themes.

loved it

Loved every second of it. It had a good plot and it was nice and steamy.
Tim Campbell was brilliant as always.
Can't wait for book 2 to be released in February.

Too Erotic for My Taste

I didn’t see in the description or any of the reviews that there was physical pain with sex, as in slapping, etc. I personally would like it if that was mentioned. I’m aware that others enjoy it but it’s not for me.
Timothy Campbell did a fine job of narration especially with the Scottish accents.

just couldn't

even with my favorite narrator's performance, I couldn't do it. I almost felt sorry for Timothy having to read such nonsense. don't use your credit unless you just want soft porn with no substance

Tried but could not finish

I had high hopes, based on the title and the narrator. However, even one of my favorite narrators could not salvage this book. It was just one sex scene after another, with only a bit of story as a teaser. What a disappointment.
