A Reader's Opinion: MY FIERCE HIGHLANDER by Vonda Sinclair (Audiobook)

Updated: Feb 13, 2020

Highland Adventure Series, Book One



A wonderful narration that brought the Highlands to life. The author made Scotland come to life and it's evident she knows the landscape because I felt like I was there. Laird Alasdair MacGrath is a wonderful character. There are times when I thought he didn't live up to my vision of a Highland warrior, but he was endearing in many ways. I liked how he had loved before and felt so strongly about his first love. He was willing to take in Gwyneth Carswell and her son despite not being able to get over his first wife. This is where I wished he would have found a way to let go and move. Gwyneth Carswell was not a character I found likeable. Her inability to make a wise decision at every turn became tiresome and I thought that Alasdair deserved much more. By the end of the story, I couldn't find one redeeming quality in Gwyneth but Alasdair made the time spent reading worthwhile.

The author has a nice and easy writing style and does a marvelous job with the setting. The narrator was perfect for the story and I had no difficulty understanding his accent. I was pulled in by his smooth and wonderful voice.

Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans--her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he's left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?

Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her--give up her son or the man she loves.
