I like the book. I read it quick. The reading was pleasant. There wasn't any complicated plots, no loose threads to tie up or complicated plots to untangle. The book dealt with the life and times of Cecily, the daughter of an English Earl. She was fostered out to royalty. Her lifetime companion, Joan was married off to Jamie Stewart, King of Scotland and Cecily accompanied her as one of her ladies in waiting.Cecily was abducted by a border lord and forced into married. When her laird died she was married off to another.You will enjoy the book, I did. That is if you do not want a complicated book.read more

Lady Cicely has traveled to Scotland as a companion her dear friend the newly wed queen of Scotland. The suitors quickly line up, appreciating her beauty and her rather large dowery. Ian Douglas thwarts them all by stealing her away to his remote property on the borders. She's determined that she will not be forced into a marriage. He's determined that she's the only one for him. Much arguing and lust ensues.This is a great story and I really enjoyed the details of the time period. It's a bit more spicy than I think was called for, but otherwise I really liked it.read more

I have been reading the books written by Bertrice Small for over a decade and look forward to each new one as it comes out. However, this book, the 4th in her Border Chronicles series, fell a bit flat IMO. There weren't the usually steamy sex scenes sprinkled throughout and the story was a bit bland. It was still good fun, but just not her usual quality.read more
