No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty-unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful that his new bride can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled that he stirs her deepest passions.Graeme is intrigued by the mysterious Eveline, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation and whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

"Kirsten Potter's nuanced performance emphasizes the wit of Banks's novel, along with its passion. An arranged marriage forces Laird Graeme Montgomery into an uneasy truce with his clan's bitter enemies and brings him face-to-face with the enigmatic Eveline Armstrong, whose behavior leaves many to believe her wits to be afflicted. However, as Graeme learns more about his wife and the secret she has hidden from her entire family, he begins to realize that true love can conquer even the fiercest of feuds. Potter handles the diverse cast of characters well, and though her Scots brogue sounds shaky on rare occasion, it isn't enough to overshadow her superb narration or the charm of her characterizations.
