Publisher's Summary

1684, Scottish Highlands

Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is resolved to build a school for ladies in her brother's newly purchased Scottish castle. But when she arrives, not only does she find the castle scorched by fire, but a brawny Highlander bars her entry.

Clan chief Grey Campbell would rather die than see his family home, Finlarig Castle, fall into English hands, so Grey must win the battle of wills with the beautiful Sassenach who flashes a bill of sale before him.

When the war between Evelyn and Grey escalates, passions flare. But outsiders have their own plans for Finlarig. After secrets are revealed, and muskets are lit, the fates of the Campbell Clan, the school, and a possible future for Grey and Evelyn are in as much jeopardy as their lives.

If you want your Highlander’s rugged, better skip this book.

This whole book irritated me to no end. If you want a milksop for a Highlander and obnoxious English chit as your “champion“ with no sense of justice whatsoever, then this book may be for you. Our “hero“ is unable to do anything without being told - including think. In fact, he is the perfect “woke” man WITHOUT any “toxic masculinity”. I have no regard for him and absolutely despise her. I couldn’t wait to see how our “heroine” was going to master HER life and get herself out of every situation. I found her without any redeeming qualities at al and he was no more than a prop so you could call this a ”romance” book. I have only returned one book, in over 10 years but this will most definitely be the second.

Good story

I would’ve given 5 stars all the way but the seduction was a little flat from others I’ve read and I love Justine as a narrator but her male Scottish voice fell flat for me. Otherwise pretty good story. I’ll probably get the next one in series.

Loved It!

Perfect balance of story, steam, and performance without taking itself too seriously. An enticing listen.

A Rose in the Highlands

You just can't help but love a sexy highlander! This is Book 1 of this series, I unfortunately didn't realize that until it was too late, and I listened to book 2 first. Lol. Justine Eyre does a fantastic job as narrator and the guys even sound sexy. 😀 Heather McCollum gave her such well developed characters to carry the story. I loved listening to this audio book and b believe both Author and Narrator deserve 5 stars for their contribution to this collaboration. Don't miss this one!

Waste of time

It was far to long a story w/out a real plot or romance. Very disappointed

Credit wasted

The MC is an arrogant over indulged spoiled twit at best. The author totally missed the mark with this one.

Narrator ruined it

Story ok Used some modern words and story line was more for a modern audience but what killed it was the narrator whose tone was high, drawn out. The reading experience would have been much better without Eyre. So many great narrators why use this one.

Enjoyed historical fiction, but..

way too much gratuitous sex. Stick to the interesting story of conflict between the English and Scottish, and elaborate on the characters with depth and meaning rather than the overused, typical, sex scenes

Easy to get hooked

A great story with typical romance, adventure, just enough drama, a little misunderstanding, but no crazy

Good story

Terrific story, the narrator was good at English accent, even Irish, though there were no Irish characters... But for the love of God, do not let that narrator anywhere near a Scottish accent again, the story was good, so I listened on... It would have been great if not for the terrible accent of Grayson Campbell took away from the magic,
