Publisher's Summary

They were both scheming to get out of the marriage before the date was even set.

In the rugged Highlands, a proud warrior is about to fall. Highlander Brus MacLeod doesn't want the betrothal forced upon him, and he certainly does not intend to take the woman as his wife, no matter who commands it. He has every intention of driving the unexpectedly feisty lass to break the marriage contract and has no plans to let her into his head, bed, or heart.

But then the funny, warm slip of a woman invades his home, his life, his soul, and he finds himself unable to forget her, even when she seems to have utterly forgotten him.

Loving the series

Again, Ms. Johnstone has brought a new book that enthralls and entices the reader to get lost in a world that the reader does not want to leave. Characters that are delectable and real, a storyline that is original and exciting to keep anyone involved and wanting more. Timothy Campbell's voice is so wonderful I could listen to him all the time.

Thank you, Julie Johnstone, what a story!

Brus Macleod didn't want to accept his betrothed! His
betrothed didn't want to marry him. Get ready
for treachery, death plots, wicked step brother
and stepmother, lies, true love. Tim Campbell
you brought this story to life with your talent!

Great Story!

Well worth the wait. I only wish the story had been longer. I think I like Bruce’s story better than Royce’s story but it’s very close. Enjoyed having Royce’s and Bruce’s parents make an appearance. Can’t wait for their sister’s story. I think the author should include a family tree so relationships can be kept straight. Also it should be mentioned which other books are connected to the Macleod clan.

Unresolved Issues

I am really enjoying this series, which are the first books I’ve read by this author. Her characters are well-developed, even the secondary ones. The plot is compelling and draws you in.
However, and it’s a big however, I have a big negative with the books. Book 1 had an unresolved situation which I thought might be addressed in the 2nd book. Not so. In addition to that, it has left me with several questions regarding some of the events in this one. It’s made me angry, quite frankly. I invest in the stories I read and I want to know the outcomes. This one especially kind of just wrapped up, leaving many details hanging. That left me hanging. I’m giving it 3-1/2 stars and I will read the third, final book in the series. Right now I have a sour taste in my mind.
On a pleasant note, Timothy Campbell is terrific as the narrator.

Not worth a credit.

The story line was crazy, going from one time to present. Took me awhile to figure it out. Only got it to see from book one what sex Eve and Royce’s baby was, never mentioned. Short for A credit. Yeah it was fine but no real answers to the plot lines. As like last book a lot of repeat of lines like they forgot where the narrator lost his place. Don’t recommend if you wanted a continuation of characters. First book left with Alaina’s love returning as she already left to marry another again. So what happened to that storyline. Just confusing. Very disappointed in storyline, I want my credit back.

loved these people!

Timothy Campbell is my absolute favorite narrator, especially for Scottish romances. Royce and Brus are fantastic heroes, and Eve and Seville are wonderful heroines. Now, I want Thor's story, please.

And Tim Campbell’s narrating makes this words come alive. I could listen to him all day.
Do yourself a favor and get this audiobook.

Captivating Story

Brus and Sebille did not want to be wed; they did not want anything to do with each other, but they are caught in a web of intrigue. Their story is an adventurous tale filled with betrayal, blackmail, treacherous plots, and revenge. All kinds of sparks fly when these two meet. The only reason Sebille is part of her brother’s plot is to protect her sister. They do not mean to fall in love, but the chemistry is undeniable. Just as they work up the courage to share their feelings, something happens to cause Sebille to disappear. Why did she leave? Will Brus be able to find her? Can they find the path to happily ever after?

Highland Reckoning is a captivating story. Both the storyline and the characters are well-written and complex, and brought to life by Timothy Campbell in his always first-rate narration. I love Brus and Sebille. I am glad they were able to see that they were perfect for each other. Not every HEA is easy and sweet, but they are all worth the work. Great read!

Another Brilliant Book

Yet again another brilliant instalment in this series. I love all the different characters & another brilliant story, with just enough drama, I don't think my nerves could handle anymore.
I would definitely recommend it.

Highland Reckoning

Overall the story was good. Brus loves a girl he is expected to marry but she runs away leaving him heartbroken . Years later, on a mission for his King he finds her again and rescues her from an imminent marriage, but she has amnesia after an accident. The story relates when he first met her - then goes on from the second time. The story's timeline jumps backwards and forwards many times making it hard to follow. It all comes together at the end. Keep going it is worth it.
