Summary

He loves her too much to make her his own.

A great, ugly beast of a man, Angus, Chief of the Reahs, strikes fear into his enemies' hearts. Only one person intimidates him - Lady Alissa, the daughter of the former chief. He's adored her since he was a lad and she a wee, downy-headed bairn. Angus longs for her with all his heart, but fear stops his tongue. What woman wants a beast, an ugly one at that, and how could such a petite mite of a woman bear the babes of a brawny man like him? His own ma died birthing him - a fate he will not consider for Alissa. He's a fool!

Lady Alissa has loved Angus the whole of her life. She knows he loves her too, but the stubborn man refuses to court her. Too proud to confront him or admit her love, Alissa arranges her own marriage to a man far away. She is preparing to leave when unexpected tidings change her plans. Wolfstan, reputed to be the cruelest raider on the seas, is revealed as the kidnapper who's been stealing lasses from across the Highlands. Alissa's cousin is among his prisoners. When Angus sets out to rescue them and seek revenge, unbeknownst to him, Alissa joins his pursuit. She's determined to do her part for the clan and prove to him, once and for all, that she is the perfect match for a Highland warrior.

How did I miss this gem? How?

This is the third - and the best of the series. It’s filled with nonstop action that had me up way, way too late. The main characters’ love for each other draws them apart in the beginning, but it isn’t long before the adventure takes off, and has them in one scrape after another on their quest to save a group of women kidnapped by a ruthless band of slavers.
The voice acting is awesome, providing all the color and distinction so that my imagination had no difficulty constructing a movie in my head - immersive listening at its best!
