Robina is not exactly the lady of the manor, she is however, the oldest surviving member of her immediate family. Her younger brother, Benjy is the Laird now, but at his tender age, he is still not the power among their people, yet. Robina will do everything in her power to protect her younger brother and keep the people under their care as safe as is possible.
David “Dev” is a knight who knows Robina well. He also knows how much trouble she can get herself into with little effort. When they clash over one of Robina’s dangerous actions, the story truly begins to unfold. Robinia is headstrong, stubborn, and so certain that her way is the best way. Dev, being male, a knight of his power and time, is exactly as certain that his way is… the only way. You have to know that these two are made for each other, they just have to battle their way to that point.
And, sorry, but that is enough. Why? Because how can you enjoy this amazing novel if I tell you every step. When you read one of Ms. Scott’s novels you are transported back in time. I will not spoil that.
I adored Robina. Yes, she is stubborn and believes her way is best – but at her heart she just wants what we all want, someone who loves her for exactly who she is. That’s not an unreasonable goal. Dev is so protective of Robina and Benjy. Yes, he feels this way on many levels but ultimately he loves this stubborn woman and will do anything to insure her happiness.
Scotland in the 1400’s. It’s hard to imagine the wildness and the vast space of the landscape of anywhere in the 1400’s. This is why when I look for an author to make a Historical Romance come to life, I look to Amanda Scott to take me back in time and help me to experience every aspect of life back then. I enjoy the glimpse into how life was in the 1400’s. The way people prepared food and ate it, the bits and pieces of everyday chores and the importance of how to provide goods and food for so many is such an eye-opener for a reader in 2015. Let’s face it, that’s a lot of improvements in food handling. *grin* I, personally, like when the way life was at the timeframe of a story is shown to me. It creates a deeper, more realistic story.
I really enjoyed Devil’s Moon which is the second novel in the Border Nights series. You can read this novel as a stand alone (as you can with most of Ms. Scott’s novels). It might make the series more complete in your mind to read them in order – but it is totally not necessary. So you can go out and pick this one up and dive right in. This novel gets a 4 outta 5 on my own rating scale. It is an interesting, at times intense and charming story of love, passion, commitment and letting that little voice in your ear guide you to what’s right for your future. (read the book and you’ll “get” that point)
*I received an e-ARC of Devil’s Moon from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
Originally reviewed at KeeperBookshelf.com
As with the last book, this one is also light on the romance - why and when they fell in love - I couldn't say. But the secret of the treasure was very interesting.
I loved Dev but Robina was a little annoying. Her entire demeanor is unbelievable for the time in which this book is set in. And as much as I tried to get past it - I couldn't.
I did like her interactions with her brothers and thought the storyline was fresh and original. The book is well written - just as you would expect a book by Ms Scott to be.
I will definitely read the next book with Dev's sister Fiona.
Amanda Scott is soooo very good at writing historical romance. She is what I would call a master. She uses the historical background to give the story authenticity. Scott did her homework for this series and it shows. Every description about the political climate and times is precise and detailed. The little things make all the difference in this one and she makes the story seem like a real account of what happened instead of fiction. A hallmark of a good author.
Robina is a heroine after my own heart. She is a stubborn one and she does not see any reason to get married. She loved her older twin brother very much but his death in battle has left her in a precarious situation. She must care for her younger brother until he comes of age to rule as laird of the clan and she must keep the suitor and raiders at bay. I admire the Highland spirit and I think Robby personified that strong, resilience that the Highland people were known for. A wonderful character.
Devil Ormiston was Robina's brothers best friend. They have known each other for years. But things are different now. Her brother is dead and she can't help but blame Dev for his death. On top of that he is only just now starting to see her as a woman and not the girl he grew up with. I loved Dev's determination to protect Robina and her home. It may have been a dying promise to her brother when it began, but it becomes much more than that. I felt like Dev was such a good example of a hero. He doesn't want to rule over Robina, he wants to help her. I found him intriguing and quite sexy.
The romance takes center stage in this one, because of the strength of Scott's ability to write good solid characters, but the historical aspects of the story were so necessary. I thought Scott got as close to fact as possible without going over the line. This story is fictional but it was so remarkably realistic that it was easy to forget at times that it didn't take place in history. An all around enjoyable story from a great author. Can't wait for the next one.
