Summary

This new historical romance from May McGoldrick pits one spirited lass against her biggest challenge yet: a Highland lord who has no desire to lose his heart. 

Innes Munro has the ability to "read" a person's past simply by touching them, but her gift comes with a heavy price: her freedom. Forced to stay at desolate Castle Girnigoe, Innes never expects to be drawn to the wounded warrior who haunts its dark passages and challenges her at every turn. 

Conall Sinclair, the earl of Caithness, carries the scars of battles with the English and the lash marks of their dungeons, but the wounds that fester within give him even greater pain. Isolating himself from his clan and the rest of the world in a tower perched on the wild Scottish coast, Conall is reluctant to let the spirited Innes close to him, however neither can deny the growing passion that ignites with every look, every touch. 

But can Conall ever love a woman who can read his darkest secrets and feel the pain he hides...and can love really tame all fears? As dangerous forces close in, Conall and Innes must take the ultimate leap of faith and forge a bond of trust that will save them both...or lose each other forever.

another wonderful story!

I love this series and feel so fortunate to have found it. On to the last installment - so bittersweet as I know I will devour that one as quickly as I did the first two. Can't the stories continue with their children??

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and absolutely love the way Saskia Maarleveld narrates and brings the authors words to life! I am on the hunt to listen to anything this teams writes/speaks!!

I gave the story 4 stars only because I missed the humor of the first book - it was still a terrific tale but longed for the sarcasm and humor of the first one.

Well done and thank you!!

Enjoyable listen

Only recently discovered this author but look forward to more offerings. The narrator did an excellent job with the different voices.

one of the best series I have every listened !

Where does Taming the Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I waited until I had listened to all three books before I did a review. I felt like it was one long book that I could not wait to finish. I listened to all three in a span of three days

What other book might you compare Taming the Highlander to and why?

I have read other highlander books but I cannot say that any have been quite like this series. The only other book I enjoyed almost as much as this is by Tracy Brogan (HIghland Surrender) I have also enjoyed Maya Banks and Julie Garwood's HIghland books/series

Which scene was your favorite?

I really cannot name one; there were so many.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, yes and yes again

Any additional comments?

This book captured my attention from the very beginning. It is fanciful; however, draws you in. There is love, pain and triumph at the end. I can't wait until more of Ms. McGoldrick's books are available to listen to on audible. The narrator was outstanding and I know I enjoyed listening because of her. However, the storyline itself was compelling and I believe the books are just as good

Great listen!

I really enjoyed listening to the first two books and am excited to listen to the next in the series. Since I seldom leave a review, shows how much I enjoyed. Definately worth the credit.

Wonderful!

This second book in the Scottish Relic Trilogy is wonderfully done! Personally I love the suspense and torment of two characters that seem to be at odds. The push and pull of the two main characters kept me enthralled throughout the entire storyline. Both with pasts that are somewhat dark, and both have things that they think they need to hide from each other.
I was totally greedy with this book and finished it in three days, I'll try to make the next one last a little longer ;)

Bastante buena

I liked this book. The hero is imperfect and the heroin has a special ability. Not bad at all.
