Synopsis: A fair-haired beauty at 19, Lady Mairi is heiress apparent to her father Lord Dunwythie's rich barony. He has carefully taught her how to manage their estates, but a feud between his clan and the Maxwell clan is brewing as the two families edge toward a clan war - their dispute over money owed. Mairi's father believes he owes nothing, and of course Mairi sides with him.

Review: Wow what an unusual treat this was for me as I honestly dont really like historical romances! The storyline was awesome with Lord Dunwythie supposedly owing money to the Maxwell Clan but did not feel as though he should which ends up with his daughter getting kidnapped and ultimately falling in love with her captor.

I did have a few brief moments thru-out where the dialogue confused me because I was not familiar with it. As I said I am not all that familiar with historicals so am not sure if it was just me or if in fact the usual dialog. Once I figured out what the words meant the story flowed well and the characterization was very nicely layed out.

I'm not much on Historical Romance either. I can't remember when I read a romance. I'm glad you liked this one and if I decide to go there I'll keep this one in mind.


Amanda Scott is a writer I like...where my curiosity as gotten to me, I have checked and enjoyed the paths she sent me on. As far as the language is concerned, being married to a native has taught me lots. this in in my to be read list.

ps, i am trying to comment less so i can read more so don't think you've lost me!
