Publisher's Summary

She'll put her life on the line for him....
When Akira Ayres finds the brawny Scot with a musket ball in his thigh, the healer has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to save his life. Even if it means fleeing with him across the Highlands to tend to his wounds while English redcoats are closing in. Though Akira is as fierce and brave as any of her clansmen, even she's intimidated by the fearsome, brutally handsome Highlander who refuses to reveal his name.
Yet she can never learn his true identity.
Geordie knows if Akira ever discovers he's the Duke of Gordon, both her life and his will be forfeit in a heartbeat. The only way to keep the lass safe is to ensure she's by his side day and night. But the longer he's with her, the harder it becomes to think of letting her go. Despite all their differences, despite the danger, he will face death itself to make her his.

Critic Reviews

"Readers will admire plucky Akira, who, despite her poverty, is fiercely independent and is determined to be no man's mistress. The romance is scintillating and moving, enhanced by fast-paced suspense." ( Publishers Weekly)

the two narrators are distracting

the storv is great but having each narrator do each chapter is horribly distracting. I ended up skipping a lot of it.

The Highland Duke

First, the cover entranced me so I bought the book. I can't put my finger on exactly why I find this cover so compelling, but I do. I have always loved Ms. Jarecki's books and never been disappointed by any of them. They are always very well written, with strong, well developed characters you can't help but get attached to. Penelope Hardy and Alex Hyde-White both gave 5 * performances for their wonderful rendition in their narration. Not only is this a Do not miss book, but a Do not miss audiobook as well. Excellent! 😀

The story was good but...

The female narrator was good she did the characters with a Scottish accent ,then the male read his part in an English accent. He made it very hard to listen too. I also found the way he read it was kind of snotty.

Get another actor!!!!

What made the experience of listening to The Highland Duke the most enjoyable?

I love Amy's books. Having read a few already, I thought I'd treat myself to an audible, but complete waste of money. Very very disappointed. Yes the story is great but the whole essence is lost by the lack of abilities from the actors.
The cover design was very enticing.

How could the performance have been better?

This story needs re-recording with different actors. Penelope Hardy made a reasonable performance and would have been okay if she had remained the only actor. Alex Hyde-White was appalling and lazy. With the two together the audio was impossible to listen to, follow the story and enjoy.
