About this audiobook

Only one man could set her heart ablaze . . .

Lady Averill Mortagne learned to control her fierce temper as a young girl. But if her father insists on parading her before one more English lord who looks askance at her flame-colored hair, she'll simply scream! Her only respite is the time she spends with Kade Stewart, the wounded Scot her brother brought home from the Crusades. Who could have imagined a Highland warrior would be the only gentleman around?

Lady Averill helped save his life, and for that Kade is truly grateful. She is also almost unbearably beautiful, but he could never subject such a sweet and gentle lady to the rough life of a Stewart laird's bride . . . or could he? When she braves an unexpected danger by his side, Averill will prove to Kade that her heart is as fiery as her hair . . . and that submitting to their scorching passion would be heaven indeed.

    Typically Lynsay Sands books starts out hot and promising and then the story becomes ridiculous the main characters are all talk no action not my favorite author I wonder why they use this narrator she as no emotions she's almost lifeless not a interesting story at all

    Though the two main characters are great, this book is just OK, not as great as book one and two, there is passion between them but it's not being felt in the writing and them constantly being interrupted while trying to do the deed becomes tiresome after a while and not funny. Though the book much improves towards the end not sure would listen to it again.

    I'd read two stories by Sands before starting this series and I hadn't really enjoyed either, lol. But I'm pleased that I extended another shot. The first two in this series were middle of the road for me, but I actually ended up enjoying this one more than I expected. The characters aren't the best at putting pieces together or avoiding mortal peril, =D but it was more along the lines of 'that'll probably be a mistake' rather than 'how have you even made it to adulthood?!'. =) There were a couple eye rolls, but also I laughed out loud a few times, and I felt fond of them enough to root for, and be happy for them.

    I bought this book at a flea market and it has been sitting on my bedside table for months. It was adorable and the couple was very endearing. I enjoyed it for the most part, except they kept getting interrupted and I skimmed the last few chapter for superfluous character's and their problems. Your brother is killed and someone shot an arrow in your back? Who cares? Kiss your wife.

    4 Stars

    Averill Mortagne is a fiery redhead with a strawberry birthmark, a nervous stammer and an intelligent mind. All of this makes it virtually impossible for her father to find her a suitable (or not so suitable) husband. That is until her brother, Will, returns from the Crusades with an injured comrade-in-arms, Kade Stewert. Kade and Averill grow closer as she nurses him back to health, and after their marriage travel to Scotland to take up residence at the Stewert keep. Unfortunately, someone has other plans for Kade and has no qualms killing the young warrior…

    A quick and entertaining read with a charming romance and a solid suspense plot.

    While Averill is not much of a hellion, she is a sweet and charming heroine with a strong backbone, and Kade is a courageous soldier and an honorable man. Their romance is characterized by an intense chemistry (despite the numerous interruptions to their amorous intentions) and an endearing emotional connection.

    The assassination plot is similar to the previous book but more logical even though the revelation of the villain is quite sudden. The secondary characters are well developed and it is possible that Sands had plans for additional books, but alas ,they never materialized - perhaps sometime in the future.

    Reading this book was a real pleasure. It was also nice that I didn’t know who the villain was until it was revealed.

    A great book to curl up with for a few hours. The heroine of this story is refreshingly funny in her ignorance and honesty. The naive things she does while trying to take advice from many others had me laughing out loud

    By far my favorite of the series so far. The development of the relationship between Averill and Kade is well done. Some of the mystery is pretty obvious but the characters in the book are very enjoyable.
