    Historical Romance - 1858 Scotland

    Thank you to eBook Discovery for the free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Not having read book one of the series and never having read any of Susan King’s book I was hoping for an interesting historical romance set in Scotland – and – that is just what I found in this novel. Mairie Macrae’s brother Iain was captured, accused of treason and is being held in jail. Mairie is determined to keep Iain from the hangman’s noose and is willing to break the law to do so. With reivers, thieves and others out to thwart her her task is not simple. When she waylays Rowan Scott, newly dubbed deputy to the warden holding her brother, she realizes she might be in over her head. She does her best to get Rowan on her side but he is dealing with his own issues so does not make it easy. Rowan and Mairie are drawn to one another but with spies to find, brothers to save, Spanish gold gone missing, a child to bring home and a magic mirror to deal with they are definitely kept busy. This book reminds me of other historical romances set in this time period and location. Both Mairie and Rowan are strong characters who will do what needs to be done. I enjoyed the story and felt the conclusion was well handled. I do have to say that this book is more fantasy than fact based reality but it was an enjoyable way to spend the day.

    Scottish suspense and intrigue

    Well written story about a Highland lass devoted to her twin brother, and her predicament when plans to save him go awry. Rowan Scott is the Black Laird of Blackdrummond who has been named as deputy in the Middle March, tasked with finding missing gold from a Spanish galleon. As their fated paths cross, circumstances lead to mutual admiration and attraction. Good plot twists keep the reader in suspense, and author's rich descriptions reflect medieval Scotland, the harsh conditions and way of life at the time. I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

    Historical story with romance in the Lowlands

    I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review Set in the late 15oo's this novel gives a glimpse into the hard life a lot of the lowland tenant farmers. Not only did they have to contend with the vagaries of weather but also had to be on constant guard of reivers stealing their their cattle and other livestock. We enter Mairi's life as her brother is charged with treason for stealing treasures from a Spanish shipwreck that are claimed by the Queen and also charged with being a Spanish spy . In trying to clear his name she meets Rowan who has been sent home to find the rest of the spy ring and bring them to justice. Their story is interspersed with wonderful imagery of the Scottish lowlands, the way the people lived and their customs. A great read for that lazy day so you can follow the plot fully .
