Somehow when this book was first released I missed reading this novel about brave knights, revenge, kind maidens and magical stones. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Russell, and I must say I enjoyed her story and her fluid compact writing style.

Scot Camden Lockhart is devastated when he discovers the deaths of his brother and sister-in-law and many clansmen when he returns from fighting the English. His clan's nemeses the Ruthvens have again struck with a vengeance. Camden is so enraged he hires an assassin to kill every single Ruthven.

In an abbey, Rhiannon Ruthven has been given a task; she must deliver young Violet Lockhart to Camden's castle. Rhiannon also carries a magical stone from the Middle East that has the power to heal, however, it can only be utilized by a Lockhart. Let me state that Rhiannon was a finely drawn character, she is innocent of her brother's dastardly deeds, in fact, she has come to the abbey to escape the violence of her clan.

Rhiannon's job is not an easy one. A power hungry Arch Bishop hungers after the stone and he is not above any means fair or foul to obtain it. Rhiannon fortunately is aware of his desires and she is brave too, willing to lay her life down for Violet.

When Camden meets pretty Rhiannon he realizes he has unknowingly put her under a death sentence, he would have never hired an assassin to wipe out the Ruthven's if he had known there was a sister in the clan. Honor bound, he allows her to stay in his home under his protection but he and his clan despise her.

The mutual attraction that grows between these leads is believable and sweetly romantic.

I got this book on a whim, having never read this author before and I must say that I really enjoyed the story. It has already been recapped several times so I won't go into that again. The only reason that this book did not get 5 stars is because of the spelling and grammatical errors. I know that does not bother some readers but it always stops me cold when a careless error is left uncorrected. Just a little editing and proofing would have made this a truly first class read. I do plan to read more books by this author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After seeing his brother James killed by a blade with clan markings, Camden Lockhart swears revenge on the entire Ruthven clan. In a moment of impulsiveness, Camden hires a man to do just that! Rhiannon Ruthven escapes the brutality of her brothers by escaping to an abbey but Mother Agnes has another plan for her. In a desperate attempt to capture the celebrated Charm Stone to increase his power, the Archbishop had accused Violet's mother of witchcraft. Without James or Camden to intervene, Clara handed over Violet and the celebrated Charm Stone to Mother Agnes. Now in an effort to protect the Charm Stone and keep Violet safe, Mother Agnes charges Rhiannon with the duty as Violet's protector on a perilous journey to the Ruthven castle. Having vowed vengeance on all Ruthvens, Camden is shocked to discover a female Ruthven right at his doorstep. Honor demands that he protect her but little does he realize all the forces at play who wish to destroy her. As Camden discovers Rhiannon's skill, determination and heart all focused on protecting Violet, to the point of risking her life for others, Rhiannon's spirit transforms the heart of this a warrior, a man almost destroyed by his lust for vengeance. Can he protect her from the killer he hired and those wishing to possess the healing powers of the Charm Stone? Can the Charm Stone unite the Ruthvens and the Lockharts with love?

In WARRIOR'S LADY, the third in her Scottish Stones of Destiny series, Gerri Russell creates a passionate medieval tale of love, danger, and legend all together with a twist of paranormal power. Rhiannon is a wounded soul, a woman who feels herself alone and unwanted and yet her heart is all goodness.

This type of book is my bread and butter. Women in the middle ages who fight the "system" of slavery by marriage and the recognized position of demure matron. The lead character is in a position of having the wrong last name and is judged by that association alone. There is a great struggle between the 2 lead characters who fight for family honor, revenge, and trying to find their place in this world. Great read!

This story was fine, more magical than I typically read, but not off-putting. The character development was good and overall I enjoyed the writing style. I am the 11th reviewer of this book and previous reviews complained about errors in the book. The author responded that those errors had been corrected. Well, I suspect a spell check was done and that is all. There are no spelling errors, but wrong words in sentences appear throughout the book and many incomplete sentences. No one has actually PROOF READ the book and it suffers because of it. You are reading along and have to re-read sentences two and three times to figure out what word should have been in place of the incorrect word. Very disappointing. Spell checking and proof reading are very different things. If this book were PROOF READ and the incomplete sentences corrected, I would give it a 3-3 1/2 STAR review.
