Narrated by Kirsten Potter
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ Right from the beginning of this book I saw lots of similarities between it and two of Julie Garwood’s books: Ransom and The Bride. Both of which are favourites of mine. This is not a negative point against the book just an observation. Once the major plot of the story gets going the similarities lessen a bit. I enjoyed the lead characters and the other two McCabe brothers. I am looking forward to their stories!The Narrator did a wonderful job. I loved listening to her accents and she had a variety of voices to keep it easy to distinguish between characters.
Maya Banks' beguiling new trilogy features three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.
Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.
The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.
