Publisher's Summary

Someone would see Ilsabeth Murray Armstrong hang for murder.

When her dagger is found buried in the body of one of the king's men, there is little room for doubt-the perpetrator must pay with her life. But Ilsabeth is no killer, and only one person can help clear her name: Sir Simon Innes, a man so steely and cool that no danger can rattle him…and no woman in distress can sway his heart.

Until now. Simon has spent his life searching for truth in a world fraught with deception. But the hauntingly beautiful fugitive seeking his aid affects him so deeply, he wonders if he can trust the flawless judgment he has always relied on. For all signs point to Ilsabeth's guilt, except one - the unparalleled desire he feels at her slightest touch.

Contains mature themes.

Narrator ruined the book for me

Would you try another book from Hannah Howell and/or Angela Dawe?

I would try another book from Hannah Howell; but, will stay away from Angela Dawe.

Would you be willing to try another book from Hannah Howell? Why or why not?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

The inflection at the end of every sentence got to be so annoying that I thought about ending the audible performance and buying the print version for the kindle and having the text to voice feature read the book for me while driving. The character voices were pretty bad, the timing wasn't bad but not good either.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Highland Protector?

The brothers visiting intentionally meeting her in prison before meeting the brother.

The Hound

Simon & Ilsabeth
Simon a Kings man and a person we have seen in several books. One who has helped the Murrays in the past. Now we see Cormac and ilsbeth once again, for now their daughter has been accused of murder and Simon must solve the puzzle. It is funny story for the Cormac and Tormund are hilarious. It’s a great story! Start at the beginning of the series!

Six Year Old Reed Burns, Breaks Your Heart

Audible Escape. This author knows how to tell a tale. Each and every story IS different, but hold the endearing qualities of a well told tale. Hero’s are hero’s, Heroines meet the day and persevere whether they are head strong or have suffer abuse but over come it. I have unfortunately read way out of order, and now have to play catch up with some of the characters. Author does know when to cluster the characters/stories together so you do not lose the thread of them.
This is Simon’s, the Kings man, story of how after helping Tourmount Murray and Calium Murray MacMillan, finds his own lass in murderous trouble. When our heroine meets young Reed and shares her bread and cheese makes you want to weep too.
I have come to realize this author tells 3 different adventures within a story in the ladder books eg 21, 19, 11
I love Ms Dawe in all of this series narrations, she brings you right into the Highlands be it on pony or horseback. Love book 10, Sigmore story, top 5. Her male and children’s voice steal your heart.
I do use 1.25x speed to match the adventure. Give it a try.
Were my comments of help?

Highland Protector

This is the 17th book in the Murray family series. And Simon's story of love. Ilsabeth is in a lot of trouble someone has used her knife in a way that was not to be used. She is on the run, as a nun. With two little ones she has picked up on the way to Sir Simon's abode for help. But will he be able to untwist the mystery before she is hung for a crime she did not do? Even her own fiance is not on her side. What happens when all is lost? Even a kings man can not always be in all places at the same time. I enjoyed the narration of this books as much as all the others in this series.
