Amanda Scott is true royalty when it comes to fourteenth century Scottish historical romance novels. Sep 22, Danielle rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance. This was a nice change for me. I don't typically read Scottish historical romance novels or novels set in medieval times but I fell in like with this story.
This novel depicts 14th century Scottish politics and the inner workings of titled Scottish families. This novel was not only about romance but political shenanigans and the race for power in Medieval Scotland. The hero and the heroine fell in love slowly but surely, there was no ravishing going on and it made their romance sweeter. I really This was a nice change for me.
I really liked this story and will be reading the next installment in this Border series very soon. I only have one objection, I don't find a man spanking a grown woman as sweet or funny. If I'm going to read a book about Medieval Times, I don't want to see women being beaten. Dec 07, Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: scottish-romances , historical.

Enjoyable read. Jul 02, Lita Bouquard rated it liked it Shelves: historical-romance. Book 2 in the Border Trilogy was better than book 1. I would give it 2 and a half stars if possible because so much of it is historical data. It continues with Amalie's story which was so disturbing in book 1. The politics of fighting for land and power in the border region of Scotland is a great portion of the book, but there is a romance too.
Sir Garth is charged with serving Isabel the widow of James and meets one of her ladies Amalie who has vowed never to trust a man nor marry. There friend Book 2 in the Border Trilogy was better than book 1. There friendship and attraction along with the wise and daring Lady Sibylla make this a better read. Jan 14, Frank Roach rated it really liked it. Nice fun book with a spunky and likable heroine and a dynamic hero. Enough real history of the time to be interesting and never for minute did you think anything really bad would happen to Amelie or Garth. I have read too many grim historical novels of late this is a nice change.
I know Amanda Scott has written many books this is the first I have read, will try another soon to see if this style is in other books as well.

Sep 14, Wendy Keel rated it really liked it. An interesting read. Fans of Scottish historials will certainly enjoy this one. Oct 13, LInda L rated it it was ok. Too much Scottish history and not enough else. Characters were unbelievable for the most part -- it had incest, murder in huge amounts, family issues, and even some love.
Not one of my favorites. Jun 29, SilverDezz added it. It was the green dress that caught my interest and start reading this book. Apr 17, Laura rated it did not like it. Nothing much happened.

I do like this book. The story is very interesting and appealing. It includes an interesting look at the political history during the fourth teen century in the Scottish Borders. Of course, there is the romance between Sir Garth Napier and Amalie Murray as he tries to protect her from danger. I enjoyed this book so much that I just had had to keep reading it in on and on until done! Aug 22, Athena Stifani rated it did not like it. Boring boring boring. And the raping case was treated in a awful way. Feb 07, Mary Hale rated it liked it.
I liked The continuation of the stories for these characters. The book had a little too many names. The plot was a little convoluted but I barely put it down. I'm going to read more by this author.
