Summary

Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her - so he's taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what's hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.

It's just Magnus' luck that he's fallen for a woman he can't have. Virginia is rich and titled... and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes - England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything.

Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.

Each book in The Highlanders of Balforss series is stand-alone: Tying the Scot, Betting the Scot, Forgetting the Scot.

Great story

The story was so good it was a page turner all the way right to the end - the narrator was excellent - definitely a re-reader.

My Favorite!

I loved this book. The hero is a big protective bear of a man who is instantly smitten and obsessed with the adorable, smart, caring heroine. The difference in station and nation provides interesting tension. I love that she wears glasses, interesting detail. The writing is beautiful and poetic. The Scot rescues his beauty from pirates and her evil husband. The narrator is strong and does an excellent job creating unique voices for each character. My only criticism is she says “damn & bollocks!” too many times. Over I love this book, will listen again and again!

Different

This story is different when compared to other books of the same genre. It continued the story beyond where others might have ended it. Jennifer is a talented writer and I hope to see much more from her. Ruth is an incredible voice actor. I’m amazed by all the accents and dialects she faithfully produces. I just wish her male voices didn’t make most of the beefy men sound dumb as rocks. Of this story in particular, I can say I didn’t like the leading lady. At all. Even her selfless dedication to her calling grated on my nerves. She was too self-absorbed and thought everything should be all about her wants, her needs. She was lovingly offered heaven on a silver platter by a man she loved to the marrow, but nooooo, she wanted to be Joan D’Arc. I wanted to smack her stupid head just to watch her eyeballs roll. Her insistence had nothing to do with female suffrage and empowerment. Everything to do with mememe. Jennifer writes flaws into her ladies, but this one was near insufferable. Magnus deserved so much more than her because he was magnificent. The author slyly suggests what these two enjoy in the privacy of their home, and it’s definitely a little spicier than usual.

Forgetting the Scot

Jennifer Trethewey has done it again. Book 3, Forgetting the Scot, is another compelling Scottish love story! Magnus has been one of my favorite wild highlanders in this series. It's great to be able to read and visualize such an appealing man. I often switch between the ebook and the audiobook depending on what I'm doing at the time, so once again hearing Ruth Urquhart narrate is always a pleasure! 😍

Not bad- relatively entertaining

I listened to this because is was available free with my membership. Entertaining enough, but I would not have been happy if I had used a credit to purchase.

This book has a very promising plot line, and i found it generally entertaining.
Unfortunately the writing isn’t stellar. It’s very simplistic in style and lacks variety. The female lead Virginia is only a bit underdeveloped and she reads relatively believably. The hero is a bit more one dimensional (though not unpleasant)... he’s your run-of-the-mill Scottish hunk who is torn between being sweet and loving vs strong and manly. There were definitely a few steamy moments, and some felt more natural than others.

I thought the narrator did a good job!
As “mind candy” in the romance genre it was worth the listen. Overall I would say “relatively enjoyable”. I know that’s kinda damning with faint praise but even though it wasn’t a bad plot I often left feeling the writing/book just lack something.

Started off ok

Book started better than the last one
Narration was funny and skillful except of the main male lead, unfortunately the narrator made him sound like a simpleton.
There was a hope for the story line till it turned into typical racy X- rated novel for bored house wife
