All Highland warrior Gavin Patrick wants is to get back to his native Scotland. Before Gavin leaves the battlefield, he's given a final mission - escort Lady Marie Colette to her fiancé. Under no circumstances is he to lay hands on the beautiful heiress...no matter how desperate the temptation.
Forced to pose as a married couple to escape from France, Gavin and Marie Colette find themselves thrown into peril...and each other's arms. As the danger mounts, so does forbidden passion. It isn't until Marie Colette is taken from Gavin that he is forced to decide if he is willing to lose the woman who stole his heart or jeopardize his honor, defy his promise, and steal her in return.
"Riveting, diverting...delightful romance." (

A perfect audiobook
This is one of those books that lends itself so well to audio. The plot is well paced, interesting without being too complicated, and with great main and supporting characters. The storyline is adventurous, with many laugh-out-load comedic moments, but is overall a gentle, beautiful love story.
It is superbly read by Mary Jane Wells, who is fast becoming one of my favourite narrators. In fact, I cannot think of another who would have done this book justice. Wells is particularly gifted when it comes to accents, and her skills were certainly put to the test with this book. The main characters are a Scottish highlander and a French noblewoman, and Wells switches seamlessly between English, Scottish and French accents throughout the entire book. I was very surprised not to notice any stumbles. This is the fourth book narrated by Wells that I have listened to, and I am so happy that she is starting to get better quality books to read.
I also recommend If The Earl Only Knew by Amanda Forester, and will be checking out the second book in the Highland Trouble series immediately!
