Lady Mairi Dunwythie’s father is refusing to give into the demands of the Clan Maxwell to submit his collected taxes to the sheriff, Alex. Alex has sent his younger brother Robert to convince Lord Dunwythie to submit. When he refuses, Rob takes drastic measures. He kidnaps Mairi. But little did he plan on falling in love with his captive, anymore than Mairi planned on falling in love with her captor. Now they must choose between loyalty to their own clan, or to follow their heart.
his is a wonderful story, full of action and adventure. But I think the best part of this book is how author Amanda Scott has captured the essence of the time in the language she uses in her prose. I am not an expert, but to me it definitely sounds authentic and totally believable. Kudos to Ms Scott for her research and endeavor to keep this tale realistic and for her talent in making this story come alive.

If you are looking for a hot and spicy story with lots of sex then this book probably isn’t for you. There is a lot of attraction and chemistry that will draw the reader in. And as a historical romance lover, this one hit the spot with me. These characters are magical together. Rob is the handsome leading man who captures Mairi’s eye. He is strong and charismatic. Mairi is a beautiful spirit who you can’t help but love. She is duty driven; yet she knows her own heart and is not afraid to follow it.

I love this book! And I hope you do too. It is a gratifying way to spend a cozy afternoon.
