Summary

The dawning of desire is delicious and dangerous.

1806, Scotland.

Wild, reckless Callum MacCreath is in no hurry to become someone's husband. But when his responsible, steady older brother Ian announces his engagement to their childhood friend Rebecca, Callum makes a startling discovery: he wants the lovely young lass for himself. But it's too late, and when Ian banishes him for his duplicity, Callum is only too happy to leave Scotland forever.

1816.

Marrying Ian was the practical, logical thing for Becca to do. But once Callum sailed away to America, she missed his rakish charm and lust for life. Now Becca is a widow when a much-changed Callum returns to his Scottish homeland. Will he remember their spirited, fiery connection or does he blame her for his brother's unexpected death? This time neither of them can deny their scorching attraction. But will their hearts be burned in the blazing heat of scandal?

Fully developed characters and rich details

Narrator - 4 STARS

Narrator Flora MacDonald does a fine job of narrating but the differentiation between male and female characters were a little distracting for me. I needed the line between them more defined. None of this took away from the quality of the audible book though.


Book Plot - 5 STARS

Author Suzanne Enoch knows how to keep her readers glued to every single page of her book with fully developed characters, rich details and sexual tension between Callum and Becca. I like that her characters aren't perfect and that she spends a great deal of time creating dramatic tension in every interaction between them.

The descriptively written details of the house and surroundings makes the reader feel like they have been transported back in time.

Callum as a youth is hot headed and self involved but his character makes the most forward movement as he works through his life as it was and who he becomes in the present time. This is handled to perfection and I like how she showed his character maturing over time that was believable to this reader.

Becca on the other hand didn't grow as much mentally as she did in her physical form but this makes sense because she was mentally stable at a young age. Her fierceness at protecting those she loves or loved is one of her key character traits.

I felt that the secondary characters completed this audio book with additional flavor and her daughter specifically caught my heart.

My Favorite of The Series

Book Three of No Ordinary Hero Series is now one of my favorites, right up there with "London's Perfect Scoundrel" which is my all-time favorite of her books.

Callum MacCreath is simply amazing, he has everything you would want in a Highlander. He is handsome, sexy, honorable, loyal and has a heart of gold. He has returned to Scotland after ten years after he learns that his brother is dead. They say Ian drowned, but he knows that can't be what happened and he will not stop until he finds out who killed his brother and bring true highland justice knowing that to get his vengeance that he will probably lose his own life in the process. When he arrives at his brother's home he discovers that he has a niece and he knows that he will have to stay alive to protect her and his brother's widow, so he will have to get his vengeance without dying.

Becca MacCreath cannot believe that Callum is back. They were childhood friends who were inseparable until she agreed to marry Ian, Callum left and was presumed dead, since he never answered any of Ian's letters or the lawyers after Ian died. Becca doesn't know what to make of the Callum who is back. When she saw him last, 10 years ago, he was an irresponsible young man who drank and whored. She can't believe that Ian was killed and when Callum tells her the truth, she will do anything to protect her daughter and help Callum bring the murderers to justice.

What I really loved about Callum was as soon as he met little 6-year-old Margaret he immediately became her protector and she wrapped him around her little finger. He was so loving and tender with her that you couldn't help smile as he realized all the ways that "bug" as he called her changed his life, and opened his heart to her and Becca. Callum and Becca are perfect for each other and as their feelings for each other grow stronger and stronger they realize that until they make the murderers to justice their lives are on hold.

Becca and Callum are wonderful characters that deserve their happiness and Suzanne writes a truly wonderful love story that will leave you aching for more. I really loved this book and I think that you will too. I highly recommend this book
