Spurned by love, Lady Margaux Ashbury has no use for the other eligible gentlemen of London. Despite her beauty, her sharp tongue soon earns her a reputation as a dragon. Convincing her parents to let her retreat to their Scottish estate, a home for abandoned young women, Margaux feels she can do something meaningful with her life. At their wits' end, her parents believe a few months in seclusion will teach her to appreciate her privileged existence, and accept the next gentleman of worth who offers for her. Margaux has no plans to yield. But neither she nor her parents bargain for the proximity of the gorgeous, blue-eyed Scotsman on the neighboring estate.
Gavin Craig, content with his life as a country doctor, is unexpectedly thrust into the world of aristocratic society after the accidental deaths of his brother and nephews. With all the duties his new title entails, and his adoption of three orphans, Gavin desperately needs a wife. She should preferably be a lady, trained since birth to manage a noble house, servants and family. His former disdain for a marriage of convenience has been rapidly overcome by the colossal task of learning to run a large Scottish barony. One lovely candidate is right next door; except that she's inexplicably determined to be a spinster.

What made the experience of listening to Through the Fire the most enjoyable?
Accents!! Knowing that so many of the characters have a Scottish brogue being able to hear their accents made listening to the audio so enjoyable.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Through the Fire?
The wedding scene is one of my favorite parts of the story.
Which character – as performed by Greg Patmore – was your favorite?
I loved all the Scottish characters, but the old steward Wallace was my favorite. His deep voiced brogue made me smile.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Love is refined through the fire.
Any additional comments?
I really hope that the other two books in this series come out in audio format soon. I enjoyed reading them, but I really look forward to listening to the stories.

Great Book Great Narrator
I had read another book by Ms. Johns and enjoyed it, so I thought I would try this one. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the story. I thought the narrator's voice added to the characterization and drama without being distracting.
