Summary

Louisa Robertson’s father is furious when he finds her acting on stage. Now, she’s being shipped off to America to marry some stranger her father thinks will bring out the “lady” in her. Luckily, Louisa’s maid agrees to switch places with her! Her maid will marry the American and get the wealthy lifestyle she’s always wanted, and Louisa can do whatever she damn well pleases - for the first time in her life. 

Highlander Ian Sinclair needs an army commission, and the only way he can get one is to safely deliver the general’s daughter-from-Hell to her intended in America. Easy, right? It would be if the lady’s companion Louisa didn’t wear breeches and do everything the exact opposite of what he orders. It’ll be a miracle if the sparks flying between Ian and Louisa don’t set the bloody ship afire before they arrive in America. 

But just when Louisa thinks her plan is going to give her the acting career she wants and a Highlander to boot...Ian discovers her secret. 

Each book in The Highlanders of Balforss series is stand-alone.

Good.

I liked the setting for this 4th book in the series - on the ship mainly as it made it all a bit different. Good story line and great narration.

I Absolutely Loved this Book

I loved this book. Yet another brilliant story that was addictive. I'm really sad now because it was the last book in this series.
All 4 books were so well written. I really hope there could be another, maybe on Mr Peter.
I would definitely recommend it.

great books, shame about narrator

loved all 4 books so much I decided the narrator could be tolerated.
Female voices silly & girly, Male voices all the same in each book.

fantastic series

I should have rated the others . This book has a nice story, an adventure and romance but you must listen to the whole series. The narrator was fantastic one of my favourites.

Loved it

Loved this whole series, I couldn't stop listening. Pity its the last one so far, hopefully there will be more in the future.
I loved this series as it was different to all the historical romances I've listened to, and I've listened to hundreds of them. I loved that the characters were all so down to earth especially the male characters, they were funny and sweet and not so macho. And I also liked the plots of each story. I really wish that there would be more, like George's and Gemma's story, and Peter's story. More please Jennifer Trethewey. Can't wait to listen to more of her books.
The narrator was even better than in the first 3.

the narrator was a little irritating

every time the word Jesus was said I wanted to pull my hair out. I dont mind it being said repeatedly in the story but the way the narrator said it set my teeth on edge each time. The female voices were done fairly well but the male ones were not convincing. I feel like all books should have male and female narrators. Aside from the narrator I feel that it was a good story

by far the best story out of the series

finally and Jennifer wrote a female lead with a brain. I'm personally so over the weak woman narratives in Romance stories.

Taming of the shrew with a Scottish twist.

I loved Louisa and Ian’s forced proximity, taming of the shrew romance. It is filled with all the emotions, the connections and the love. The story will give you all the feels - laughing, crying, swooning, cringing, teeth gritting, and cheering. Louisa and Ian are real, relatable people who have flaws, but are really trying to just do their best as messy humans. Louisa is the only daughter of a Scottish general. After she is caught wearing trousers and acting on stage, Louisa is bound for America and a husband has been selected for her. She and her servant Mary agree to switch places so Mary can marry and Louisa can be an actress. Of course, her plans begin to go awry when she meets Ian, the captain of ship ferrying her to America. The more time they spend together, the more the tendrils of connection form but being together will knock both of their lives sideways. The journey toward their HEA was a fun swoony and sexy ride. The story included sweet moments, steamy scenes, chuckles, supportive friends, messy families, painful pasts, secrets, messes, and all the heart squeezing love. This is my first read from this author and it won’t be my last. 4.5 stars

Ruth Urquhart did a phenomenal job narrating the story and breathing life into the characters with enough change of inflection, tone and cadence to voice multiple characters quite convincingly.
