Publisher's Summary

Jennet Graeme has witnessed terrible tragedy during the many years of strife between the Scots and the English. As Scottish invaders plunder her convent sanctuary, she defiantly resists the blond warrior who claims her as his prize. But his brute strength is overpowering, and Jennet is forced to ride with him through the lawless lands, tending to the wounded, protected and desired by a man she wants to hate but cannot.

Sir Hacon Gillard is moved by Jennet's compassion and mercy. As a loyal knight, he's pledged fealty to his king's command even as he loses his heart to this remarkable woman. He is merciless in combat, but within him burns a spark for something far beyond the heat of battle....

Contains mature themes.

Not ground breaking but still very good

ground breaking? No. Good story with great narration? Yup!!

Hacon was a warring knight of scotland with a conscience. Jennet was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hacon takes Jennet and saves her from a horrible fate although she doesn't seem to know that at first. I love the slow burn of their love and lust. I loved that together with the orphaned baby (forgot his name) they were a ragtag family and didn't even know it. Because this is a historical I wasn't shocked with the "i love him/her but don't want to be the one to tell what's in my heart because I'm not sure what's in his/hers."

Hacon was a strong leading man who wasn't a barbarian in his interactions with Jennet. Jennet was hilariously sharp witted and I adored her spunk. I wish we got to "see" someone put Catherine in her place because she was a mega biotch that needed a good smackdown. I get that she was hurting but good lord woman, grieve and move on and stop making everyone miserable.

story - 3.5
narrator - 4 She was very enjoyable and if I didn't know any better I would have SWORN it was Angela Dawe. Who knows it just may be her under a pseudonym
