I've been reading Scottish highlander books by a number of different authors and while I liked Ms. Crosby's Colyne McKerran, I was disappointed that there wasn't more Scottish to him. He's a lord in his own right, but aside from fleeing the countryside, there's not much exposition of Scotland. Colyne was wounded trying to get a writ to the French king explaining who kidnapped the King's bastard daughter, Marie. As luck or fate would have it, Marie comes upon Colyne and tends to his wounds, but she keeps her identity a secret. She's not sure who she can trust anymore. I loved Marie's feisty character. She's no shrinking violet, that's for sure. The passion that blooms between these two is believable and I was routing for them throughout the book. There were a couple of unexpected twists and turns that kept my interest to the end. However, Scotland is such a beautiful country and I would have liked to seen more of it in the story.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for a fair and honest review.
