Wed by proxy to a baron old enough to be her grandfather, Lady Anne trudges up the gangway of a galleon that will deliver her into the arms of a tyrant. Crestfallen, she believes her disastrous life cannot get worse - until she awakes to the blasts of cannon fire. Facing certain death, Anne trembles in her stateroom while swords clash and the chilling screams of battle rage on the deck above. When a rugged Highlander kicks in her door, she prays for a swift end.
But Laird Calum MacLeod has a reason for plundering the ship - and it's not a stunning English lass. With no other choice, he takes Anne to his crumbling keep on the isle of Raasay and sends a letter of ransom to her husband. In time, Anne grows to understand MacLeod's plight and finds it increasingly difficult to resist Calum's unsettling charm - until the baron sends a reply agreeing to terms.
Ripped from passion that will be forever seared into their souls, will Anne and Calum risk everything for love?

Should be a female narrator
Downright uncomfortable and a bit embarrasing to have a man narrate this rather smarmy romance novel. His imitation of the female's charcter's (Ann) voice makes her sound like a simpleminded 18 year old. His imitation of the various Scottish accents feels really wrong. I can't figure out why this author would have a man narrate this book. It would also be helpful if the publishers would rate books by age appropriate categories. This book feels pretty juvenile, with all the "shivers going through them each time they see each other".
