I am one of those people that can figure out a mystery in the beginning of every story. This was truly a good suspenseful story until the end. I highly recommend this book.

Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil knight in exchange for his help to overthrow the king, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she's captured by the knight, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he's to marry her.

This book is about family, love, and politics. It also has quite a bit of humor that will keep you smiling or laughing.

When I first started the book, I wasn't sure I was going to ask to be able to listen to it because it sounded so far-fetched. And I'm a sci-fi type of person. But I stuck with it and I'm so glad that I did. It was wonderful. I didn't figure out who did it until the last chapter.

The overall story was good, but I had to speed up the narration to 1.25 to make it sound like normal conversation. The narrator drawls everything and makes everything sound like a seductive voice instead of the normal tones.

Once I speed up the narration, the voice sounded normal.
