Since buying my Kindle six months ago, I have been an avid reader of historical novels, either of the 'wild West' or the Scottish Highlands. I have tired a little of the 'inspirational' authors who can spoil a good story with too much sermonizing. This book was a good, honest romance, set in Scotland in the 15th Century, with enough fighting and intrigue to make it a really good read. It was one of those stories I could not put down, and finished in 24 hours. I am so looking forward to the next in the series.

Since other reviewers have written adequate synopsis of the story I will not...

I am an avid reader of Inspirational Historical fiction. I do not like really lengthy or raunchy sex scenes which is why I gravitated to that genre. But I've run out of books to read. At 99 cents I couldn't pass up giving this book a chance. Good reviews and a blurb that was intriguing. I'm glad I didn't pass it up.

While this book is not Christian, there is nothing offensive in this book. YOu could watch the passion grow in both of the characters in a realistic way and none of it was forced or crude. It was actually quite beautiful. If you are looking for a romance, this author weaves it with class. It was nice to read a book that was wholesome where I wasn't being preached at.

Again, I would like to reiterate... there are no religious themes in this book so do not be turned off by this review. I just wanted to point out that this book is good for readers like myself--- those who like to feel a real passionate connection between characters and like reading a little of itbut without reading all most intimate details.

And if the spectacular romance isn't enough, there is enough suspense to keep you turning pages swiftly. I couldn't put this down.

Well done. I eagerly await the rest of the books in this series. One of my new favorites!!

I admit I am guilty of not leaving a lot of reviews and I really feel like I need to go back and give credit to all the good ones out there after trying this book

Unless I'm missing something I don't understand how this has such high ratings. I have tried to get through this but I must throw in the towel. How old is the lead female? The hero's very young sister acts older than she does and the poor girl was married and beaten by the age of I believe 10! (I know she's young but I just don't have it in me to go back and confirm her exact age). Her constant physical attack to the hero just grated on my last nerve and then her jealously (um where is this coming from?) was just it for me. He was developing feelings for someone who he hasn't had a converstaion with and who is always kicking or hitting him? UGG just painful.

I'm sorry but if by the half way mark if the characters havn't even had a decent talk between each other it becomes a complete waste of time.

I love Scottish romance novels, but this was a huge disappointment on many levels. About half way in, I began quickly skimming just to find out if anything new happens. The book is nearly over before Bree and Ruan finally acknowledged their true feelings to each other. While easy to understand Bree's fear of men due to beatings from her stepfather, why is Ruan "finished with women", as he repeatedly tells us? Ruan's little sister Merry becomes annoying by continually interrupting interactions between Bree and Ruan. There is not one single character that was likeable. The editing is poor as well, and this was supposedly the second (corrected) edition?? Overall, it's just plain awful.

It is difficult with the advent of self-published and small press books to separate good quality from poor. Often it is a matter of poor or no editing and that is the problem with this book. Had there been an editor or at the least a good beta reader many of the word problems and punctuation errors would have been caught.

But the real problem for this reader (I've been a Scottish/romance reader for over 40 years) is the lack of development of the story. The characters do not act or react as one might expect in a romance, and there is just no sexual tension to speak of (fighting each other and accidentally falling on each other is not sexual tension). So that when they do succumb to each other it is just not believable and lasts but two or three purple prose paragraphs. This might have been better executed if they just done "it" behind closed doors, because as written it was very anticlimactic (no pun intended). The story drags with too many characters that seem to have no real purpose in moving the story along, which makes the pace of the story very slow and the reader loses interest in caring what happens to this couple. I kept wondering when the real story was to begin. Sorry, for me it just never did.

Finally, historically it was just too bland, and lacking real knowledge of Scotland. It could have taken place in England and who would have known the difference. There were a number of historical inaccuracies that wouldn't have plagued this reader if there had been a purpose to the change, but this appears as filler or poorly executed foreshadowing for future books, despite the author's acknowledged experience. As a Scottish historian and researcher I just didn't buy much of the premise for this story set in Scotland.
