Audio: The Highlander's excellent adventure by Shana Galen

Narrated by: Victoria Aston

Series: Survivors  Book 8

Release date: 02-23-21

Historical romance

To review

A two in one! Ines wants an adventure, but for now she wants to escape a suitor and hides in a carriage. Then she wakes up far from London. Oops. So she pretends not to speak English as the owner is Duncan Murray, the sexy Scot she has seen around.

Meanwhile Emmeline runs away from yet another failed season, luckily she runs across the son of her mother's friend. A certain Stratford Fortesque, who has been in love with her for years.

These two couples run into each other and decides to travel together.

Ines really wants Murray, while he needs to marry an English Lady. I wanted to smack him over the head so much.

Emmeline thinks no one will ever want her. Statford is stupid, who cares about your parentage!

There is some danger, there is romance, there is back and forth. I enjoyed it, even if Duncan should have given in earlier, but I get it, they had issues.

Aston is a great narrator when it comes to romance. Distinct voices, nice accents and she gets the feel of it all 

Ines Neves and Emmeline Wellesley have both run away. Ines hid in a carriage from a tedious suitor, only to find, too late, the carriage had traveled out of London, not just around the block. To make matters worse, the carriage is that of a stranger: a handsome Highlander. Or perhaps a big, strapping Highlander makes matters better? Emmeline Wellesley has had four Seasons and cannot tolerate another. To force her mother to listen to her, she's run away. But things haven't gone well. She's been locked in a closet, had all her money stolen, and somehow adopted a dog. When an old family friend shows up to save her, she doesn't exactly welcome his help.

Doesn't mean they don't want to be found.

Duncan Murray doesn't know what to make of the Portuguese-speaking woman in his carriage. She refuses to return to London, so he takes her to meet Nash Pope, a so-called friend who speaks Portuguese. On the way, he meets up with former soldier Stratford Fortescue and Stratford's opinionated distant cousin, Miss Wellesley. The four travel together to Nash's estate, and that's when everything goes really wrong. On the run to Scotland, Duncan finds himself increasingly attracted to Ines, even though he knows he can never marry her. Stratford has always wanted Emmeline, but his family secret means he doesn't deserve her. This excellent adventure might bring the couples together, but only if they manage to elude gun shots, a murderous brother-in-law, a vicious dog, and outlaws. (

Carole's Monday: Touch of Evil

Cecy Robson
Title: Touch of Evil
(Touch #1) (Weird Girls Series #10)
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, UF
Format: ebook
Pages: 209
Published: October 13th 2020
Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon purchase)

Emme Wird, the healer and powerful telekinetic in the Wird family, hasn’t had the best of luck with males. While her sisters have found their mates and forever loves, Emme has found males that are better left as lost. Is a decent meal with polite conversation too much to ask for? Yes, it is.

When a pack member that Emme has dinner with is discovered dead and dismembered, it is up to Emme and her werewolf friend, Bren, to solve the murder. But spine-tingling danger and touches with evil have ways of bringing close friends closer.

Could the male that Emme searches for be right in front of her? Or will evil snatch him away from her, just as it did once before?

Been excited about the new arc. I adore Emme and I want her to be happy!

The story follows Emme and Bren. Emme is the healer and powerful telekinetic in the Wird family. She hasn't had luck in love and with all of her sisters finding their mates....she is feeling left out and lost. Bren has been a family friend to the Wird family for years and was a lone wolf, literally, for a long time until he was dragged into joining the pack. When a pack member Emme had a dinner date with is discovered dead and dismembered, it is up to Emme and Bren to solve the murder. 

OoooooOOOoooooo Emme. I have been rooting for her to fall in love again after what happened to her in the past. Poor, poor Emme. 

Ugh. Bren. I like him. He is fun, but omg I have been wanting to smack him for a while now and I was hoping he would do right, but NO he's still being a butt! Big idiot. You like Emme and Emme likes you. Get over yourself. Sure, sure, I know you had a tragic past and so forth.......but come on man. Emme is an angel!!!!

This felt really, really short and quick compared to some of the others. Maybe I just read really fast? *looks it up* Eh it is a little shorter than some of the rest. I wasn't ready to say goodbye yet. Yes, yes, I know we will have more for the new arc soon, but I can't waittttttt! Bren needs to make it better. Big idiot. 

Even though this was shorter, it was just as good. Lots of laughs. Lots of action. Lots of steamy scenes. I love this world!!!

Overall, I am excited about this new arc. I love Emme! I like Bren overall even though he's a big idiot. Curious to see what comes next! I'll give this 4 stars.
