Summary

The Scottish Highlands, 1816.

Lady Sybil Lacey is every inch an English woman. She’s horrified her best friend is wedding a barbarian Scot. For aren’t Scots naught but brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers? So to find herself secretly attracted to the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle is quite disconcerting.... 

Liam MacBride is convinced that English ladies are silly sassenachs who think of nothing but social events and clothes. So why is he intensely drawn to Lady Sybil? All they do is quarrel...until loathing turns into undeniable lust.

A tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and a Scottish laird cannot end well.

No depth whatsoever

A very bland story with shallow, uninteresting characters. No development of character, no plot to speak of.
Narration is okay but unremarkable (the author should probably take the blame).
The title ‘Duke of Manchester’ sounds particularly jarring.

Wonderful romance


Thoroughly enjoyed this book. What wonderful characters. Lady Mc Bride was a brilliantly aggravating lady indeed.

Don’t miss this one!!

This is my first historical romance in decades-yes decades! And I’m well and truly blown away. Aside from sharing the same first name as the heroine, I loved this story. It captured so much of history and felt true it’s time.
I’m not a fan of 3rd person writing for Romance but it was easy to get into and the narrator did an excellent job. Highly recommend this title and I’m off to find more audiobooks in this series.

BEST of the series!!

This book had everything. I was engaged the whole time, laughed and actually cried. It is also the most sexy most romantic of the first 5 books. Hit hot hot without being a bit crude.

Wonderful all the way around. Worth a repeat read!

meddling mother

Oh, I love Scottish tales, and this one is set in the Scottish highlands. Lady Sybil Lacey accompanies her good friend to the Highlands to be with her when she marries a local Laird. There she meets another Laird, Liam MacBride. Liam is surprised to find this English lass is not like the ones he's been told about. Sybil is surprised to find all Scots are not the barbarians they are made out to be. A romance begins to form between these two who have very set opinions of what the other should be. In the course of their romance barriers must be brought down and preconceived notions must be dispelled.

Predictable yet entertaining plot

I really enjoyed this book. It explored some deep seated prejudices while also showing how intelligence and love can overcome them. The narrator was excellent, and I am a harsh critic of audible narrators.

Loved it!!

I adore this couple so much! This is by far my favorite book of the series so far. I was hooked until the very end and was sad to finish their story so quickly.

Bana-Still baking, burnt some cookies. .

May have to stop doing other things while lessening to the story. got so involved in the story I didn't hear the timer. Love the fact that they moved the story out of London. I thought that they were running out of men. Nice change of pace, starting to feel as if, It's the same old story just differnet names. This Felt like I was lessening to a whole other series. I didn't know that there was so much hate England and Scotland. thought it came long before the 1800 learned something.

Worth the read

I was beginning to worry the series was slowing down, but this book offers a clear antagonist and includes deeper factors than the previous books.

I appreciate the characters and their strong feelings about each others’ ancestry. I like that their feelings for each other helped them move past the hate, and I hate/love the MIL’s character. Well done!

The narrator was exceptional. She narrated the previous book and did okay, but this time it was very very good and I didn’t lose my immersion due to the voice changes or accents. Great job!

Love these books.

Love these books.
I really wish the sex wasn’t so descriptive. I fast forward and then back to get through those parts. I am addicted to the stories as they are so good.

Having a hard time

The narrator is unnerving, and she seems to race at times very hard to listen to.

Not good

Narrator was frantic, characters were not well developed and whiny. I usually can find some fun in these stories but needed it to end.

Romance? Don't think so.

The plot was fine, if a bit predictable... it's a romance.l, what're you gonna do? Heh. The action of the story, the trials and tribulations, were nice. Enough to keep me interested. It was the sexy time bits I have issue with. One, the cheese was enough to gag on. But mostly, two, I don't find reading what constitutes as, an assault entertaining. She didn't want his attentions at first. He pushes and pushes and pushes, and plays the "I can't control myself" card; locking the door to the room so she can't leave, pushes her up against the wall while she's asking him, again, to leave...
I don't find that entertaining in the least. It *is* possible to build drama and desire without the woman being simpering and the man being aggressive.
I have read other books by this same author and thoroughly enjoyed them so please don't let it turn you off reading her work. It's this specific book that I have issue with .
