Highland Hope: Of Mist and Mountains, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Sometimes the one you love is the very one you cannot have.
Lady Eve Sotherby dreams of escaping her horrid life in England, yet she has nowhere to run. So when she spies a posting for a companion in the Highlands, she seizes the chance to disappear. She’s heard tales about the barbaric Highlanders, of course, but no one can be worse than the beast she once foolishly agreed to wed. And never mind that she doesn’t meet any of the requirements for the position: must have no family, must love the cold, and must know the healing arts. Her depraved relations hardly qualify as family, she’ll wear a shawl, and how hard can it be to learn medicinal ways?
Laird Royce MacLeod rules the fiercest clan in the Highlands with an iron fist, but his two children are another matter. Since the death of his wife, they’ve grown quite unruly. Too busy with his clan duties to tend to them himself, he needs someone with both a spine of steel and a kind heart to subdue them. What he does not need - or want - is to get entangled with a woman who desires anything related to soft emotions from him. So when a mysterious woman appears at his holding showing the sort of mettle he requires, he takes her on, despite her two major flaws: she’s English and she’s beautiful.
Soon, Eve finds herself yearning for the one thing her past prevents her from ever having - the honorable but brooding Highlander. And the Scot who was certain he desired only order and obedience cannot explain the undeniable pull to the chaos and warmth Eve brings to his home. But the more they deny their feelings, the more impossible they become to resist, and when enemies and secrets threaten, Eve and Royce may only survive by surrendering to true love. If only it’s not too late...

Prepare to be immersed into a nonstop adventure that begins on the first page! Julie weaves her magical pen, bringing the the surroundings and characters alive as the story quickly unfolds!
She's running for her life, from a brute of a husband, who has a few secrets, to a position as companion to twin girls, on the Isle of Skye. Her hope is she can hide away and not be found.
He was Laird of the keep, but chaos seemed to surround him (very funny chaos at times!). His twin girls were into mischief all the time, his brother, well.. you will just have to see, and his sister, again, will not give it away!
All she could see was the stories of these barbaric Scots in kilts was true! A tale filled with everything needed to keep the pages turning!! Here is is 1:30 and I have just finished!
With this being the first in a series, I cannot wait for the rest!!
Royce reminds me of his father who did not want to give love a second chance. But Royce was apprehensive because his first wife had betrayed him. Along came Eve trying to find a place to hide from her abusive husband and ends up finding her true love. Royce's twin daughters were mischievous and rejected Eve at first, but Eve was able to win them over with patience and love.
Cannot wait to read Brus and Elena's stories! (Perhaps their cousins as well😀)
She has created new and original characters that make you forget this is fiction and breathes life into them. I could not put it down.
Hunky hero that makes me want to meet him in person and a heroine that makes me jealous. Mix in a set of twins you can't believe and you have a story you won't forget.
This book is contradictory and rather boring. The will he or won't he regarding the H's feelings for the h became tiresome. The author told a much better story in the first book.

She draws you in from the very first chapter & keeps you enthralled till the very last.
At times so breathtaking in her descriptions I can see the birds above, hear the rustling leaves in the trees, feel the heart racing terror of the heroine or hero as we inch toward that ever so hard earns HEA.
