"O, I forbid ye, maidens a', that wear gold in your hair, To come or go by Carterhaugh, for young Tamlane is there." 'Twas not Robert Burns's legendary elfin knight who greeted Amarantha upon her arrival at her folklorist uncle's Cornish mansion, but the dark and wild-haired Tamlane Adair. The Scotsman's languorous movements enthralled her, and the rumors of his nighttime rides across Bodmin Moor only heightened the virile man's mystery. His voice was like satin or silk, sliding over her, clothing her in blissful delirium. Listening, she could almost forget the anguish that had driven her from London, the Jacobite rebellion that had cost her so much. In Tamlane's green eyes, Amarantha could not help but see the danger of the Cornish coast ... and in his arms, its wonderful promise. "There's none that goes by Carterhaugh, but maun leave him a wad; either gold rings or green mantles... or else their maidenhead."

Cyril tells Amarantha many stories about King Arthur and other Celtic legends that begin to perk up the sad and lonely Amarantha. However, meeting the rector of Bodmin Moor, Tamlane Adair is the real catalyst that draws Amarantha out of her despondency. There are secrets about him that make him even more interesting to Amarantha, who vows to learn what they are though she suspects simple smuggling to be the answer. What she finds out is inside her heart.
AMARANTHA is an exciting historical romance starring two strong lead protagonists and a cast of eccentrics, especially the heroine's uncle. The story line enthralls the audience with love's power to heal redeeming two lost, but for quite different reasons, souls. Fans will delight with Melanie Jackson's pleasant tale.
