Publisher's Summary

Highland Blessings is the story of a highland warrior who kidnaps the daughter of his greatest enemy and clan chief to honor a promise he made to his dying father.

Bryce MacPhearson, a highland warrior, kidnaps Akira MacKenzie on her wedding day to honor a promise he made to his dying father. While Akira's strength in the Lord becomes a witness to Bryce, she struggles to overcome her anger and resentment when he forces her to wed him, hoping to end a half-century-old feud between their clans. While Akira begins to forgive and Bryce learns to trust, a series of murders leaves a trail of unanswered questions, confusion, and a legacy of hate that once again rises between their families. Clearly a traitor is in their midst. Now the one man Akira loves no longer trusts her, and her own life is in danger. Can Bryce look beyond his pain and seek the truth? Will Akira discover the threat against her before it's too late? How will God turn a simple promise into bountiful Highland blessings?

A very entertaining romance novel with no cheesy sexual content.

The first romance novel In a long time that is truly a romance and not about sex and lust. I also enjoyed the thriller part and the role of faith in their lives. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful story

This is well written and beautifully performed. If you are looking for a sizzling romance, this isn’t for you. However if you love a great story and great characters, this is very recommended!

Male lead was trapped in adolescence in my mind

The writing was skilled in style but the male lead seemed too young and inexperienced for me to feel that his presence in a romance was appropriate. Felt like adolescent fiction.

Great book!

This is my first Jennifer Hudson Taylor, it will not
be my last! What a sweet love story, it took
them a while to overcome kidnapping,
betrayal.

Something missing

I loved the performance, the story but there was such build up with the main characters, how their love and trust slowly came to be and then boom at the end she was pregnant? I felt like we missed the romantic part of this story.

Could not finish it

This story is extremely drawn out. It’s really not a romance. It’s more historical fiction. I got it because I really like the narrator and she did a wonderful job but really couldn’t help a boring storyline. Not recommended.

A Gentle Story with Historical Threats of Clan War

I enjoyed the struggles, deaths & aftermath. Softly whispered prayers are so fitting for the characters and do not hinder the story flow. The nasty relative in the dungeon a bit scary. I like this book & will re-listen to it. Good narration.

Has potential but is too premature

I loved the plot and the story has moments of intrigue, however, the author writes as though the reader cannot be trusted to reach their own conclusion. The storyline became so obvious with numerous clichés early on that I had difficulty finishing the book.
The narrator did an excellent job.
This book was regrettably not enjoyable.

Good story

Happy to hear there is a book 2 as it did end making the reader wonder but at the same time it also ended with out needing a book 2. Was thrilled to see or rather hear Elle was reading I absolutely love her voice.

good story

Enjoyed thr story very much. The plot was good and it was very sweet.
There isn't even an inkling of any sex in it infact till the very end I thought that they didn't even consummate their marriage.
Thr narrator was very good.

Historical romance and intrigue

Highland blessings written by Jenifer Taylor Hudson and Narrated by Elle Newlands, was both captivating and all consuming. I was unable to put the book down. Loved it

Lovely story, with some gaps. Great narration.

Sometimes I felt like there were gaps in the story. Like I was missing the moment very much where she finally agreed to consumate the marriage, and all of a sudden in the end we get to know she is pregnant without any sign that would suggest it for the reader. I get that it was meant to be a book with much emphasis on religion but still if the author puts in a conversation about her asking him to wait with the consumation of their marriage, she should also not leave the readers hanging.

So good

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. The narration was excellent. I loved that it was in a Scottish accent, & the voices for each character were great. It was so refreshing to listen to a book like this that was appropriate all the way through! I'd be fine with my teenage daughter listening to it. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book.
