Summary

Joan Comyn swore allegiance to Robert the Bruce the day she witnessed England's barbarous king torturing her famous mother, Scot patriot Bella MacDuff. Now the mysterious beauty slips into men's hearts like a specter and entices England's most illustrious barons to unwittingly divulge their secrets, then shares them with her king. Known only as the Ghost, even among her Highland Guard brethren, Joan has become the most wanted traitor in England.

The man determined to uncover her identity poses her biggest threat yet. Alex Seton once stood with Bruce but now fights for the enemy. Though Joan knows she must avoid the handsome warrior or risk discovery, his knightly chivalry touches a place in her long since buried. When his suspicions grow apparent, Joan realizes she must do everything in her power to stop Alex from revealing her mission and convince the powerful fighter to join forces with the Highland Guard once more. But as the ultimate battle in the great war approaches, will Alex choose love or honor?

Addictive

The whole series blends into each other - great story, great narrator & great author. Great background for Scottish history buffs. Hopefully Monica McCarty will start another series,

Very well written

It was an awesome adventure! The narration was great. The mix of history and romance was refreshing this particular story was my favorite. I would like to have had more about Robert the Bruce.

The End!

Joan and Alex...this was an unexpected pairing for the series. I loved it and I loved their story. I thought that Joan was a wonderful character and that what she went through was remarkable. I am literally shocked that people made it through this time period. We love to romanticize it, but it was a tough life with a lot of horrible people and things being done to people. Women locked in cages, be-headings, people being drawn and quartered. I don't want to spoil anything, but I loved the epilogue, I loved hearing from the entire Highland Guard.

The best series I’ve ever read

Monica McCarty is an amazing writer! She is truly one in a million. This whole series of highland guard novels is written so well, I was on the edge of my seat. Can’t wait to find more great books by her. And this narrator Antony Ferguson is simple the best ever! Loved it

Best Romance and Historical Series Ever!

The series was wonderful. I have been a fan of Outlander. Never thought any listen would come close to Jamie and Claire. The Highland Guard Series came Really close. So sad when the last one ended. Ready for a new adventure. Thank you audible.

Romance and a strong female character

It's nice to come across a highlander romance that actually has a risk-taking female character who endeavors in what are typically masculine domains (politics and spying). Very respectable, if not perfect, narration by Anthony Ferguson.

Once Again MMs Books Hit The Mark

I was waiting for Alex Seton's story. It was interesting to find out who the Ghost was. The series is so good and hot.

Great end to a fantastic series.

This was a great ending to a fantastic series. I have listened to several of Monica McCarty’s series and have enjoyed them all. Now, I really want to go back to Scotland.
