Amethyst de Burgh has been sent by the archbishop as assistant to her uncle, the master mason in building a castle for the border lord, Marcus Montclair. She has always dreamed of this opportunity, but knows a woman in this position would not be accepted if it wasn't for the sealed and stamped missive giving the order, sent by the Archbishop himself.
Marcus is not pleased when a woman shows up saying she is the new assistant to his master mason. And when his father arrives with a missive from the king, things only get worse. Now he's expected to marry the girl when she challenges his every word.
With his castle unfinished and his defenses low, he knows it won't be long before the Scots come over the border and they are attacked. But facing the enemy isn't half as challenging as dealing with his new wife.
A hardened border lord and a headstrong woman are forced to work together to change their ways. And in the process they learn that things are not always as they seem....

Yes I would definitely recommend this audio book. Ms. Rose brought her characters to life. Amethyst wants to build a castle and Marcus wants his built. When the two meet there are sparks... Use to listening to books longer in length, as the book neared it's end I kept thinking nooooo I don't want it to end!
Amethyst was named after the stone in the dagger that her mother had bought. An old blind hag told her it would ensure she found her true love.
Amethyst was interested in building castles. She went to a site where one was being built. The Archbishop of Canterbury had given her permission to be involved in the building of it. Her uncle was the master mason in charge of seeing the castle done. Earl Marcus was having the castle built and he was a very hard hearted man and a border lord. When he spotted her uncle talking to her, the Earl came over and he and Amethyst clashed right away.
Marcus's father showed up with a letter from the King that he and her father had betrothed Marcus and Amethyst. They found out that everything is not always as they seem.
You need to get all of the Daughters of the Daggers!! They are wonderful.
