Her enemy was the only one she could trust…

Jacqueline Renold, an English born lady is the sister to the king’s executioner. In love with one man and forced to marry another, she feels no different than the prisoners below in the dungeons. After witnessing one too many Scots hung by the noose, she makes a decision that would change her life, she frees the prisoners. Knowing her actions are treason, she flees to Scotland with a bounty on her head…

Ewan, the Laird’s cousin is second in command of their army. Third in line to the MacKinnon Clan, he has no home or land of his own, only the sword on his back. Through his skill as a warrior, he seeks out to find his place in the world. Ewan travels south with William Wallace to help free those who the English have been taken captive. But when duty and honor leads Ewan to help an English lass in grave danger, the last thing he expects is to lose his heart to his enemy.

MY THOUGHTS:
Audio version: #2 in “The MacKinnon Clan”. A 1600’s Medieval Scottish Historical. A Scottish-English romance. I feel you should read or listen to #1 to have a real connection to the characters, although not really necessary. There are references to previous characters. The narrator was interesting with his Scottish brogue, he changes his pitch for the different characters. It was interesting to hear him interpret the female voices.

The story is intriguing and interesting. The characters are well developed,and engaging. I enjoyed the audio, it was easy to listen to, while riding in your vehicle or working on something else.

It was a quick tale, but an interesting one. 5+ hours of enjoyment! Interesting and well done.
