***THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE AUDIO VERSION OF TAMING THE WILD HIGHLANDER***
Taming The Wild Highlander was a yummy Highland romance that kept me riveted from beginning to the end. Listening to the Highland brogue as opposed to reading it for the first time was a delightful treat and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves reads featuring Highlanders. It will add a whole new delectable dimension to your repertoire hearing the Celtic lilt vocalized. Warning! You may find yourself picking up some of the dialect afterwards. I personally like saying arse now instead of ass. :-) The narrator did an excellent job and this has been one of my very favorite audio reads. I didn't want it to ever end.
Angus' and Edana's story was tender, heartfelt and moving. Angus was a yummy hero, strong, honest, loyal and wholeheartedly luscious every inch a Highlander. I loved the Fae and Celtic folklore interspersed within along with the depictions of the region, the castles, the clothing, and more. The romance positively sizzled while the plot boiled. Add in a faux marriage and dungeons and the fiery, determined lass and this book was utterly bewitching.
With this story, I found new ways to listen to audio books. Before, I was only listening while running/walking a local intercoastal waterway. I couldn't stand, though, to only listen every other day to this book so I started listening while driving and found that even short commutes became pleasurable! Then... I found I could enjoy it while gardening and cooking and showering. So... this book helped to open my eyes to new ways to listen to books!
Terry Spear's books are all must-reads for me. Every one of her books have been wonderful and this one is a another winner!

This is the first book I have read by this author, but I will say with a promise that it will not be the last. I realize I started the series from the end but the book did well in standing on its own. It only made me want to go back to the beginning and begin the first one.
The hero and heroine were perfect for each other. A touch of paranormal filled with intrigue and romance with feeling and emotions. Humor, passion, romance, and suspense all in one book.
The heroine is a strong take charge person in a time when this was an oddity. Add to that her special gifts and a neighboring clan who thinks they must stop her to protect her and you have a very interesting adventure.
The hero meets the heroine when they are children but she really never leaves his mind, although he doesn't like to admit to it. He is a strong and perfect match for her character.
The adventure begins early and continues throughout with the couple having to pretend to be man and wife, which says enough within itself. Add to the adventure humor, steamy passion, humor and romance and you have a satisfying read. I didn't want the book to end and I really look forward to reading the rest of the series.
Although I read this book first there was no confusion within the story from not reading the others in the series first. But it without a doubt made me add the others to the top of my to be read list. This is one author that will be added to my favorites list.
Edana Chattan senses concerns where people she knows could be in danger. When her brothers warn her they're in trouble, she can't convince her father to listen to her, so with an escort, she tries to locate them. Separated from her escort during a storm, she is discovered by Angus MacNeill, who is tasked to return her home.
Only Edana has other notions--and convinces him and his companions to allow her to use her abilities to locate her brothers who are manacled in a dungeon somewhere. That leads to a faux marriage and more dungeons and more trouble than Angus had ever thought possible. So why is the bewitching, fiery-haired lass making him think of marrying her for real?

This is the story of Angus MacNeill and Edana Chattan. Edana has been touched by the fae she knows when people she cares about is in danger. She hears the call of her brothers being in danger. Unable to convince her Da. She leaves the castle with her escort to find them. She is separated from them during a storm, to be found by Angus, who was tasked to return her home. Edana convinces him and his companions to allow her with her abilities to locate her brothers. Which leads them into a faux marriage, tossed in a dungeon, and two suitors of marriage. It's a fun hot ride. Angus is in over his head and loving it. This has to be one of my favorite books. I love the banter Terry Spear always has in her books. She has topped herself on this one. This is a truly love this bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
