My Thoughts
Mercy is an heiress who runs away from home and goes to see her gran in Scotland. I liked how smart she was about it, she takes her maid with her, she books passage on one of her dad's ships. I can stand by this runaway.

Then she meets Lennox. Reluctant Earl with a Castle that is falling down, and who loves building flying machines. I liked Lennox, he was always just there you know.

Mercy's Scottish family were idiots the bunch of them, ugh! Her former fiance was an asshat! I am glad she ran away. Her family back home did have the best of intentions, so I forgive them.

Oh and there is a feud. So she is not allowed to meet Lennox. But does she care, no.

They meet, fall in love (cos who wouldn't) and then there is some family drama and they live happily ever after.

I enjoyed it :)

Narration
I did like the narrator. But his Mercy voice did at first sound like she had a cold or something, but then you got used to it. It was just his female voice. He did have nice distinct voices to all the big players and I liked his soft Scottish accent 

Blurb

Rebellion drove Mercy Rutherford to Scotland to escape the possessive grip of her fiance. But it's fate that lands her in the crumbling highlands castle of Ross Caithart. A dreamer with visions of inventing airships, he's most certainly mad. Handsome beyond words, he's also causing an irresistible flutter in her stomach beyond reason. When Gregory arrives to see their arranged marriage to its bitter end, Mercy desperately turns to Ross with an offer of her fortune-and her hand in marriage.

The Earl of Morton has a reputation for being a daredevil eccentric, but even he is hesitant to engage in such a rash proposition-no matter how utterly beguiled he is by the wildly independent American heiress. And yet, with so much at stake, how can he possibly say no? But when their unconventional union grows into a passionate and inseparable love, more than Gregory's obsession threatens them. Now, Ross and Mercy will have to risk more than their hearts to save it

  2. That's how I want to sum up my reviews most days. "They meet, fall in love, there's some family drama and they live happily ever after." lol Can I just say, "Read the book, you'll like it." and be done with it? I'm glad you liked it.

  4. It usually takes me a while to get used to a male narrator's female voices. Glad this one worked for you. Sounds like a fun audio.

    1. Same. With female narrators I do not have this problem, but with males, always

  5. Oh no, a nasally female voice - that is the worst, lol. I'm surprised they had a guy narrate this in the first place, this genre is usually dominated by female readers.

  6. Hah! I love that you said his female voice sounded like a cold, haha. It's great that you were able to adjust to his narration and fall into the story. A lot of people dislike the narrator for the Kate Daniels series (Renee Raudman), but I couldn't imagine anyone else reading the part. At first I was skeptical, but she grew on me, and now it's permanent. :)
