Publisher's Summary

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....

It was a wonderful auditory experience.

I read this book before, some years ago. I enjoyed Amethysts love story, her character and stubborn nature too. After listening to this story, now narrated by Mr. Brian J. Gill , I feel as though it is a new story and somehow I read it wrong or rather as if I misinterpreted it. It felt new, the meanings richer and his accent made me feel as if I left NY and vacationed in England. I gave it 4 stars because Mr. Gill made me laugh every time he made the young ladys' voices, especially that of Marcus' young female cousin.

great

in my belief this is the best book of the four. I wish I had to read them first but I read the one about the son before period. This author is one of the best I've ever read. There was a lot of details in this book which made it I think one of the better of the 4th although the other three were wonderful. Elizabeth Rose will be one of my favorite authors and look forward to reading more of her books.

Most enjoyable experience

This is my first audio book and loved it. Being able to do things while listening to a great story and a great story teller, made the experience very enjoyable. As usual Ms Rose wrote a story full of love adventure and action. The characters where well developed and your felt for them in their times of trouble. As usual she also included a number of side characters to keep the story interesting.
The narrator Brian J. Gill did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. It was so nice having someone pronounce the words as they should be said instead of trying to guess. Now when I read another of Ms Roses books, I can hear Brian in my head reading to me. I look forward to listening to more of his audio books and if you haven’t tried one, this is a good place to start.

4th in the series....

I enjoyed the book and narrative but..... somehow something was almost missing.... it was very good but it felt like it was rushed or at times sort of glossed over. Don't get me wrong I still think it was worth it. But it was not quite as fulfilling.

I bought this audible edition for $1.99 when I purchased the kindle edition for $3.99. I've done the same with the first book in the next series, Onyx.

Sisters

This is the last book in a set about four sisters and every book is wonderful. They can be read alone or in order which is great. The wonderful story lines keep your interest and the deliverance is performed beautifully.

Enjoyable story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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!

Another Great One!!

Any additional comments?

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.

Amethyst

Today I finished listening to Amethyst. What a lovely story. The narration was excellent. Amethyst was the last of the four daughters to be at home. She is sent to help build a castle with her Uncle. The Earl of the Castle is not happy that she is there. His Father arrives and he has met her Father and between them they have arranged a marriage between the couple. So they get married and after many interruptions they eventually consummate the marriage. There are a few wars and injuries. This book definitely has adventure. It is very exciting and has its ups and downs. It has ended the series beautifully. All the sisters got their blades back. Miss Rose you exceeded all my expectations. Well done. Fantastic series.
