An unclaimed land in the Scottish isles is ruled by the male and female victors in a series of war games every five years. Named Chief and Lady of the land, they rule the vast holding and protect the people by divine right until the next game begins. After her brother's death, Ceana is named laird. The only way for her clan to survive the ravages of the Highlands is to join in the war games. Bastard son of a powerful earl, Macrath is placed in the games by his vengeful stepmother. He must survive for the ultimate retribution. Ceana can't stand the arrogant Highlander who seems to be following her, and yet she can't seem to walk away. Macrath wants nothing more than to be rid of the troublesome need to protect the warrior lass. What starts out as a race to survive turns into passion to endure together.
Contains mature themes.

Grand Adventure

I totally did know if I would enjoy this audiobook by just looking at the description. I was greatly surprised by the fast paced, intricate story line and depth of characterization. Antony Ferguson performs a wonderful reading as usual.

War games...!?

Start to finish this is the tale of a to the death competition where only one male and one female survive. It's brutal and gruesome and between each of the five "games" there is rape, abuse, brutality, deceit, cruelty and a love story. This story appears to end quickly yet there are so many unfulfilled questions and plot details that it is obvious this one pairs romance will spread over several books.
I often lose interest in a book if I wander away from it for any length of time.... in an audio book that maybe a hour.... yet for some reason even knowing where it had to go and what had to happen, thus no surprises, I still was compelled to finish. I have yet to decide if I want to go on to the next book in the series. I might.

Anthony Ferguson is always good!

The sex is steamy... but violence is more prevalent.

Creditworthy? If it's your kind of story it is very well done, so yes. But probably not for everyone.
