    "Respectful Handling of a Touching Story"

    I love the Grant Clan and KM! She handled a story of abuse and PTSD with respect, humility, and mostly love. The average reader may find this story too rough, phyically and emotionally, especially if you look for escape reading. But if you want something that touches your mind, heart, and soul - this one's for you.

    "Do not pass this one up"

    Really enjoyed this story made more authentic by the narrator! Loved the character interactions and the plot twist later in the story!

    "Loved the story but the narration is a bit poor"

    The story is kind of like a Nora Roberts love story where it leads up to the plot with little romance in the beginning. I think the story would have been much better is the narrator didn't sound like he was having challenges speaking. He made the females sound stupid and whiney.

    "Superb and entertaining!"

    First time I've ever listened to books by Keira Montclair or narrator Antony Ferguson. The story line was very entertaining and the love scenes were very realistic without going overboard. I usually don't like male narrators, but Antony did a stand up job. I went back and purchases the next four books in the saga (there are eight total). And hope to be just as entertained.

    Not the usual love story where the woman hates the guy and she grows to love him. This was about a traumatized woman whom was abused and neglected and learns to trust with kindness, over time.

    "Best Highlander Book"

    This is one of the best Highlander series I have read in a while. It show the good and bad side of the era. The main herein seems weak but she's anything but she is so strong mentally and physically she give true meaning to steel magnolias . The hero seems like a brute but the more u get to know him the sweeter he is about those whom he loves plus it's the time period you have to remember . Worth money or credit enjoy!!!! Great narrator

    Story
    "Respect is sexy"

    I caught the first part but, alas, skipped a few chapters. When I caught up with the story line, I was pleased with the fact that the relationship wasn't hinged upon physical chemistry alone, but upon mutual respect and love.
    Another winning point, the priest wasn't stereotyped. Catholic priests are human beings and subject to being as good or as bad as anyone else, it was refreshing to see a priest portrayed as a true shepherd of his people.
    My Dad defined a solid marriage as this: "when the other person's well being and happiness is more important to you than your own" He was married to my mother for 50 years.
    The love scenes were exactly that, love scenes. They were a natural expression of the characters growing respect and love for each other.
    The abuse was well written and probably integral to the understanding of the depth of damage their love had to overcome, but it did not spare the reality. Some parts of even the best books are endured for the rewards of the resolution and the beauty of the story. It provides the contrast necessary to provide a realistic portrayal, however, it wasn't easy nor pleasant.
    Generally well written and evocative, not a literary great in my library, but I appreciate the time and effort it took to tell the story.

    "Just Say No"

    Actually, I'm pretty sure this is the worst.... simply the worst story ever. Mr. Ferguson does a laudable job - but there is simply no depth to this book - at all. Ridiculous - and I have read plenty of bad books. This is the worst.

    "Boring. Not much of a story line."
    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rescued by a Highlander?

    scene after scene of processing rape, trauma and PTSD. When I listen to books I want to be entertained and this never really got my attention. The author handles rape and torture with sensitivity but that is not a world I want to be engrossed in, even if it does have a Scottish accent.

    "Story stiff and boring at times"

    Loved the narrator however the story was slow, stiff and at times boring. I'm glad I was listening because if I was reading the actual book I would have tossed it into the corner never to be read again. I loved the characters especially the relationship between Alex and Jenny. I'm going to give it another try and read another of her books.

    "Different writing style"

    I have mixed feelings about this story. This book dealt with subject matter that will be difficult for some, but it was handled very well, which is a strength. On the other hand, the writing style struck me as immature or simplistic, but maybe it is ok to avoid too much wordiness. That said, I am on the fence about the book. I liked the characters, but do not feel driven to read the other books in the series, unless they were to go on sale and that is telling because I usually must read things in order. Ferguson gets a four because he always gives a good performance.
