Summary

The Bride by Julie Garwood meets To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning in this new Highlander series from award-winning author Heather McCollum.

Clever and bold, Ella Sutherland has won the right to call herself chief of her clan and struggles to hold onto the chiefdom against those who doubt a woman’s rule. When she’s captured by the darkly handsome Sinclair chief, she chooses death over wedding him and giving up her clan to their long-time enemy. For she has a secret, an oath she took years ago to protect and keep the clan seat for a great ruler to come.

Cain refuses to let his brother, Death, honor Ella’s choice with an execution. He’s never before met a woman so brave and passionate. Everything about her, from the scars she hides on her face to the way she can ride a horse while standing on the saddle, intrigues him. Despite their growing attraction, she continues to resist his plans to unite and conquer. When enemies within the Sutherland clan threaten the oath Ella made, she escapes the Sinclairs and Cain to defend it. 

Hurt by her desertion, Cain rallies his armies to take revenge, defeating the Sutherlands once and for all. But the wise words of his grandmother and the pressure growing in his heart make him question everything he’s been raised to believe. Can victory possibly come from surrender?

A good book and a good recording

A very enjoyable book with a good voice actor. Definitely worh buying but since it is free (at least right now) its just a crime not to at least try it out if you like this kind of genre!

Totally enthralling, would recommend it

Loves it!! Don’t want to give anything away, so all I’d say is that it’s the first time that I’ve read/ listened to this author and I can Say that I’m chopping at the bit to read more. Love this very well written gender.

Comfort read! Full of elements that make a good read for adults

This is typical of the series, it has a touching plot and considerable amount of touchy-feely stuff going on in it. What made it attractive to me was the way the audible rendition brought the characters to a reality. Fabulous accents and an amazing deeply appealing voices especially the Laird.

Enjoyable listen

This book was a pleasant surprise as it had more to it than many Scottish bodice ripper type books, and the heroine had more about her.

Terrible narration

Did not get far with the story the narrator was absolutely awful. If you cannot get narrators who can do accents then don’t use them.

A WONDERFUL BEGINNING TO A SERIES SO FAR

I enjoyed this book. Strong female lead and strong male lead always makes for interesting results. Tim Campbell can narrate a cookbook and make it sound sexy! If he's in, I'm in!! There are not enough Historical Scottish Romance books being put on audio with good narrators, so any time I find one...I gobble it up!! lol

strong women in a scottish love story

I love the women in this story are strong, talented, smart and beautiful and that a strong man appreciates these qualities...which let love lead instead of pride.

Might be my New Favorite

This book is easily Heather McCollum's best. So far the series is amazing. The sons of Sinclair are easily the coolest heroes of all the highland romances I've listened to or read.
As usual Tim Campbell was wonderful. He is my favorite narrator for highland romance - well it's a tie between him and Phil Gigante.

Good plot

I really had a difficult time understanding the narrator when he spoke in the women ‘s voices. I had to slow his speed of his speech and I still couldn’t understand him. Once I got into the story, it was very good but it did take me a couple of tries
