"Meet the NEW Portia Hobbs! The American screwup is trading in her partying and drinking for a sword-making apprenticeship at a Scottish armory. Narrator Karen Chilton warmly exudes Portia's newfound confidence and occasional bouts of uncertainty as she tangles with Tavish Mckenzie--the armory's grumpy master swordsmith. Chilton's Scottish accent has a soft lilt but not enough of a brogue to bring the Highland setting to life. But she creates instant chemistry by emphasizing the snappy, flirty dialogue between Tavish and Portia. They battle over bringing the armory into the digital age--until Portia unravels a secret that has her melding Tavish into a duke, and just maybe her knight in shining armor.
