Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half-brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it's the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort-the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries' shameful offer, but Murine herself tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her-with his life and his heart-if she'll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.

"Narrator Elle Newlands's gentle Scots burr is perfect for capturing the the young Lady Murine Carmichael, who falls victim to her half-brother's plan to sell her to the Highland warrior Dougall Buchanan for a few horses. Dougall refuses as a matter of honor and even attempts to help her--falling in love in the process. His goal is to wed her--but first he must convince her of his love. As the story evolves, Newlands runs into trouble keeping the various characters' voices distinct, especially in differentiating Dougall and his three brothers. Sometimes even Lady Murine's lilting voice blends with that of the youngest brother. The lack of distinctive character voices makes for a slightly disappointing audio experience.
