scotsman of my dreams audio

Once the ton’s most notorious rake, Dalton MacIain has returned from his expedition to America during the Civil War – wounded and a changed man. Instead of returning to his old haunts, he now spends his time at home. But Dalton’s peace is disturbed when Minerva Todd barges into his London townhouse, insisting he help search for her missing brother, Neville. Though Dalton would love to spend more time with the bewitching beauty, he has no interest in finding Neville, whom he blames for his injury.

Minerva has never met a more infuriating man than the earl of Rathsmere, yet she is intrigued by the torrid rumors she has heard about him…and the fierce attraction pulling her toward him.

Dalton does not count on Minerva’s persistence or the desire she awakens in him, compelling him to discover her brother’s fate. But when danger surrounds them, Dalton fears he will lose the tantalizing, thoroughly unpredictable woman he has come to love.

Rating: B for narration; B- for content

The second in Karen Ranney’s current MacIain series, Scotsman of My Dreams is an enjoyable character-driven romance in which the reclusive, wounded hero meets the unusual young woman who is destined to help him rebuild his life.

Hellraiser Dalton MacIain, bored with the predictability of his life in London and wanting excitement, left England with a group of followers in order to fight in the American Civil War. Deciding which side to fight for on the toss of a coin, five, including Dalton, fought for the Union while the remaining seven men joined the Confederate army. Dalton very soon learned that the gruesome realities of war were a far cry from the glory and adventure he had anticipated, and is contemplating a return home when he is shot in the face, losing one eye and the sight in the other. Following months of convalescence in America, he returns home to be greeted with the news that his older brother has been killed in a hunting accident, and that he, Dalton, is now the Earl of Rathsmere.
