I have had this book in TBR shelf for quite awhile and finally found it lurking waiting for me to read it. So sorry that I waited so long. It is a great start of a series that I will definitely keep reading. First of all, it takes place at Dunvegan Castle which I have been to when I went to Scotland several years ago on the Isle of Skye; a beautiful place I might add but very cold and windy. The story has been explained so I will not repeat it but this is very well thought out and pretty much historically accurate so far. It is a love story but it also shows the struggles of the Scots against the nasty, controlling King Edward of England. Edward was one of the most devious and cruel monarchs of all of the Kings and Queens in their long line of rulers. He had a particular hatred for the Scots because they would not be controlled or would they bend the knee to him. Wonder why? That being said, it also shows how women were nothing but pawns in their on going game of chess with each other and how they had no compunction to use and abuse them at will. Our h is not to be drug around by her hair and rebels only to be caught be the H who is bound by his loyalty to his King David of the Scots to marry her for David's advantage and release from prison. The tug of war between them begins and it is very well done. It also shows that love of a good woman always wins out in the end no matter what. 4 1/2 ****
