The Highland air was heavy with revenge, and Mairi MacInnes wanted to breathe deeply of it. Until an arranged marriage with Robert MacBain, an enigmatic lowland lord, whisked her away to a life of adventure, passion—and unspoken love.

Generous of spirit. Mighty in battle. Indeed, though he lived in a world of silence, Robert MacBain had gifts any would envy. Yet the Baron

I always have trouble getting into the Harlequin Historicals for some reason - they don't have enough of the detail that I like in a historical romance, so I am sorry to say this book wasn't a winner for me. I appreciated the way the deaf hero overcame his difficulty but I didn't like the way heroine didn't know about it at first then figured it out but didn't tell him - I wish it just would have been stated to the heroine at the beginning so it wasn't such a plot point. The heroine's impulsive ...more

I really loved this book. I thought it was so neat to have a deaf hero, and to see how he has compensated and become a very strong, capable man during a time when people with disabilities were discounted and not even considered worthy of having their own properties and running their lives. I also enjoyed the relationship between Mairi and Robert. Lyn Stone knows how to write romantic and sensual, and interesting love stories. A must read.”

Oh boy....I hate it so much when I read books that I WANT to like but I just CANNOT! I 've tried so much to see the good points (a few!) instead of all the really-are-you-kidding-me ones...but in the end, the rolls of my eyes were so many that I felt I was cheating on all my 3 star rating books.

Darlin'.... no! JUST NO! I like fiesty and sassy and big-mouthed heroines (hm...why I wonder..) but tried as I might Mairi didn't cut

Rob Macbain solo quería una esposa que pudiera darle herederos, pero “hacer” los herederos con Mairi MacInness no sería nada fácil... Rob se dirige tranquilamente a las Highlands a buscar a su prometida. Seguro de que en el arreglo del matrimonio ella había sido informada de todos los aspectos de su futuro marido. Mairi ha sido “sucintamente” informada de lo que iba a encontrar en su prometido. ¿Quién se creía que era ese hombre para no dignarse a dirigirle la palabra

Wow, I really enjoyed this great story of Mairi and Rob. If I could I would give this 6 Stars! Lyn Stone weaves a very fascinating and touching story. She also provides humor, which is great.

The Laird MacBain, Rob, goes to meet his betrothed, wed her and bring her to his new home. He finds she is truly a beauty and courageous. He hopes they will be happy. He also hopes she has been told about him. This was one of the stipulations, which he himself had imposed in order

Dear Trouville, sign language in not useless, I don't care in which era you have lived.
I didn't like Jehanne nor Thomas, not one bit. And Henri wasn't married yet (but wasn't his story before this book?! D: Whatever [Edit: Apparently not]). The last part was a bit so-so, hence the rating.

Good plot about a deaf man in the year 1335 with exciting ending but it dragged in the middle with overlong delay of truth and characters mentally speculating making my rating 3.5* Marriage arranged between Mairi and Robert,who lived in a world of silence.

I really enjoyed this book about a man trying to keep his hearing loss a secret from his new wife. Entertaining and a great love story.

Just a little hard to swallow. Finger spelling in the 14th century? But I just kept thinking of sign language even between tribes in North America and Africa, tried to buy it.

Lyn's foray into book-length fiction began in the early '90s, and she signed her first contract with Harlequin Historicals on Valentine's Day, 1996. "Flowers, candy, kisses, and a book sale, too! There will never be another day quite like that one!" she says.

"I always loved to write and even got excited about doing reports and term papers. I neglected other homework just to make that short story f
