Sensuality Rating: 8
The daughter of a Scottish laird and a beautiful gypsy woman, Tamsin Armstrong grew up with a foot in both worlds--heeding the calls of her wild gypsy ancestory while upholding the ways of her proud Scottish forefathers. These two distinct worlds collide when Tamsin and her father, Archie Armstrong, are captured while raiding the lands of their hated English enemy, Jasper Musgrave. It is at this point that the young laird William Scott crosses Tamsin's path.
William remembers Archie Armstrong well, because the Scottish reiver and his own father were close comrades when William was a child. For the sake of fond memories--not to mention the lure of Tamsin's green eyes and brave heart--William negotiates their release. Tamsin is relieved to be away from the dungeon, but troubled that William has agreed to hold her hostage in his own castle. She's even less pleased by her father's obvious approval of the plan, suspecting that he hopes to arrange a marriage between her and William. Neither William nor Tamsin plan to fall in love, but the powerful attraction between them grows stronger by the day despite the danger that threatens their happy ending. Will William's entanglement in Musgrave's evil plan against the Queen destroy his future with Tamsin? Don't miss The Heather Moon--it's a wonderful tale filled with adventure, noble characters, and heartwarming emotion. --Lois Faye Dyer
