Summary

Known as the Lyon for his prowess on the battle field, Piers de Montgomerie accepts a challenge from King David - squash a troublesome highland rebellion. For his payment, he accepts disputed lands, but soon discovers that what he truly desires is the highland beauty whose brothers will never bow to him.

Meghan Brodie refuses to be a pawn in a political game and vows not be won so easily. She resists the English Lyon...but even as she begins to realize their love is destined to heal an injured land, she cannot dare to hope the Lyon will see beyond physical beauty to love the imperfect lass within.

Lyon's Gift

Quite a good story ,but Spoiled by the appalling narration by Ewan
Mac Rae. He makes the female characters sound so pathetic and the male characters voice even worse it spoiled the whole story .
I'm going back to the kindle version as this Audible has totally put me off listening to any others Narrated by Ewan Mac Rae.

Narrator

I love the fact that they had a Scotsman doing the narration for this book as he knew what he was saying and pronounced the word correctly.
I hope he is doing the narration of the other books.

Lyons Gift

Most of the men narrators have a devil of a time getting the women’s voices right. They usually sound like whinny old biddies. My only suggestion would be get a female to help. I really like the collaborations. They sound so much better.

Left me wanting

Wasn't a good as the first one. Could have been the narriation. His voice was not distasteful I just couldn't get on board with it.

Delicious. . .

Lighthearted. .. simple and gentle.... but what does it matter so long as there's a hunky man and a sexy brogue and a castle!? I do have a singular complaint, a goat is a GOAT and a baby goat is a KID not a lamb. A SHEEP has a lamb. So using either lamb AND goat constantly referring to the same animal is asinine! Huge writing error! Apparently Tanya Anne Crosby has no idea what a goat or a sheep is because they aren't the same thing. How did no one catch this? Fair warning, it's all the same single animal even tho its confusing because it really isn't.

NARRATOR : Sexy male voices.... deliciousness for my ears! The female voices of sexy sounding male narrators are often lacking in any femininity. Here too its true, yet I stopped hearing it as such very quickly! Well done!!!!!

CREDITWORTHY? Yes, providing your looking for Scottish historical HEA romance and not a serious literary revelation. It is what it is and what it's meant to be.

HEAT FACTOR: Soft steam but with a tendency to boil.

Lyon's Gift

Fascinating romance with very witty dialogue between the main characters. If you enjoy strong willed female characters who don't always fit their expected societal roles, you should this one that will have you laughing out loud. Definitely a 5 star romance by Tanya Anne Crosby! This was the first time I remember having heard a narration by Ewan MacRae. He has a very sexy deep voice was perfect for the strong male lead. However, since I am not accustomed to listening to his work, the female voices were not as appealing to me as the male renditions. It is however, extremely difficult to stretch ones voice from super masculine to willful female. I would say his is a 4 Star performance, but I think if I hear him more often, I'll become more accustomed to his sounds.

Enjoyable and refreshingly unique

Many reviews of the story and the narrator were negative. Truthfully, I loved the narrator’s voice. The Ewan MacRae’s voice was clear, easy to understand even with Scottish accent, varying the voices for different characters and overall a great performance! I saw that he is a narrator for the others books in this series and looking forward to the next books. Story was amusing and creative. My only criticism is the quick closure at the ending. I think a more elaboration of their final discovery of their feelings would have made the book 5 star plus.

Great book!

I loved the story, but felt that it ended way too quickly. I wish there was an epilogue telling readers what happened next.

Wish it was me

This and ever one of this books I have and love, there are no men like this in this world and most likely never will to fine really true love will never happen here for no man know what that mine LOVE? That what that is to a man a ? I have to go in side a book just to imagine what that is sense I never experienced true love and most likely never will sad I know but that the way it is. It called life and to know I will die and never experienced love hurt more then I can bear but I will go on with out that one thing in my life and listen to books until I go. So keep writing for us that have nothing but books to have some kind of life.
