Audio Review: Highland Vixen - Mary Wine

Marcus MacPherson is every inch the fearsome Highlander. He's used to men averting their eyes and women cowering before him. He thinks he'll eventually settle down with a nice, obedient bride. Instead, he gets Helen Grant . . . Stubborn as the day is long, fearless, and dedicated to raising as much hell as possible, Helen is definitely going to challenge Marcus. And challenge him some more. And then some. It's anyone's guess who'll win this battle of the heart . . .

Narrator: Antony Ferguson

My thoughts:
This is book 2, and sure it works as a stand alone. But the couple from book 1 is still around since it's his brother and wife. And we met Helen and Marcus in book 1 and got a bit of their story.

Marcus stole her to teach her family to behave. And she is pissed at him. She wants to go home and he, oh he totally fancies her but is too man to admit it. Silly man!

I am not saying what happens, but these two end up married. And it will not be an easy marriage. Not by any means at all.

But first. Brenda! Poor Brenda. Through the entire book I wondered what would happen to Brenda. She would so deserve a book of her own! If you wonder who that is, well she belongs to the same clan as Helen and they will do some travelling together ;)

We also meet a girl named Catherine and I am looking forward to her book for sure.

But this is about Helen and Marcus dancing around each other. They both want each other. But she is a nobody, he is the war chief. Then there is that bloody Earl of Morton making plans and being evil.

It was amusing listening to this. I could not wait for them to end up together and when they finally did they still had a long way to travel, and with drama, some good drama and suspense too.

This is the second book I am listening to by Ferguson and I am used to his voice now. And his voice fits these books. He does the highlanders well.

  1. Glad this was a good listen! I need to start this series soon! Lovely review (:

  2. I am not a fan of this cover. It looks a bit ethereal to me, which doesn't fit the picture of the highlanders in my head. But this book does sound good, like a cat and mouse game.

    Great review!

  4. Awwwwe a war chief? Love it.

  5. They do sound like quite the fiery pair.

  6. Oh that sounds interesting.

  9. I'll have to give these a go after all. :)

  10. I've heard nothing but good things about this series!

  11. I love audiobooks but I don't think I have ever listened to a historical romance. I may need to change that. Great review!

  12. I do love a narrator who can do great Scottish accents. Sounds fun. Great review.
