Summary

Sometimes the one you love is the very one you cannot have.

Lady Eve Sotherby dreams of escaping her horrid life in England, yet she has nowhere to run. So when she spies a posting for a companion in the Highlands, she seizes the chance to disappear. She’s heard tales about the barbaric Highlanders, of course, but no one can be worse than the beast she once foolishly agreed to wed. And never mind that she doesn’t meet any of the requirements for the position: must have no family, must love the cold, and must know the healing arts. Her depraved relations hardly qualify as family, she’ll wear a shawl, and how hard can it be to learn medicinal ways?

Laird Royce MacLeod rules the fiercest clan in the Highlands with an iron fist, but his two children are another matter. Since the death of his wife, they’ve grown quite unruly. Too busy with his clan duties to tend to them himself, he needs someone with both a spine of steel and a kind heart to subdue them. What he does not need - or want - is to get entangled with a woman who desires anything related to soft emotions from him. So when a mysterious woman appears at his holding showing the sort of mettle he requires, he takes her on, despite her two major flaws: she’s English and she’s beautiful.

Soon, Eve finds herself yearning for the one thing her past prevents her from ever having - the honorable but brooding Highlander. And the Scot who was certain he desired only order and obedience cannot explain the undeniable pull to the chaos and warmth Eve brings to his home. But the more they deny their feelings, the more impossible they become to resist, and when enemies and secrets threaten, Eve and Royce may only survive by surrendering to true love. If only it’s not too late...

I Absolutely Loved this Book

Yet another brilliant book from Julie johnstone.
Just when you think that you can't get sucked into another series of books all connected you do. Yet again Timothy Campbell takes you on a journey & you feel like you are really there feeling the sadness & happiness that I'm sure the author felt when she was writing it.
I would definitely recommend it.

Very pleasant

I loved this story, both the writing and narration. I was loathed to stop to sleep as I wanted to know what happened next. Looking forward to more of this series.

Favorite Julie Johnstone Book So Far

This is my new favorite of Julie Johnstone's books. I've listened to a lot of her books and this one is the best so far. Second favorite is the story of Royce's parents in When A Laird Loves A Lady. Definitely recommend listening. As always Timothy Campbell did an amazing job narrating.

Another great listen/read

The first in what I imagine will be another great series about the Macleod brother’s offsprings . Royce is the son of Iain and Marion from the first book in the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series. Betrayed by his first wife Royce has vowed to never love or trust another woman. Eve/Abigail enters his life causing him to question that vow. A sizzling attraction occurs during their first meeting and a wonderful story follows. Highly recommend!

Hopefully

Lovely and entertaining. Timothy Campbell‘s narrative is once again perfect. I loved the story about love set against personal hardship and second chances. A perfect HEA.

Outstanding

Eve’s life has been filled with abuse and pain at the hands is the men in her life, first her father then her husband. In desperation she escapes to the distant island of Skye in hope of hiding in peace. Royce is laird of the land, a single father whose wife was unfaithful and ultimately killed herself. This is their story.
This was my first book by this author and I believe she’ll become a favorite. A good plot with complex characters made this a great read. I enjoyed their interaction, along with the secondary characters. It was difficult to put the book down and I can’t wait to start the next one.
The narrator was first-rate.

Wonderful start to a new series

The story of Royce and Eve was about a second chance for love that neither thought was in their future. I enjoyed every minute of this book beautifully narrated by Timothy Campbell. Both his men and women’s voices are done so well.
