Publisher's Summary

A man without a past....

Abandoned at a monastery as a young child, Alexander serves two masters - God and the fading memories of his past life - the one he never got to live. As he nears the day to take his vows, he’s sent on a last sojourn into the real world, but what begins as a test of faith becomes a journey to manhood.

And a woman who doesn’t know her own heart....

Born from the line of two kings, Lady Sibylla Mac William is abandoned by her sire as a child and then ruled illegitimate. Though she lives a happy life under her uncle’s protection, Sibylla craves something more, but never could she imagine losing her heart to the would-be monk who unexpectedly arrives to tutor her brother.

Together, they will forge the future of a kingdom....

When dark secrets from the past come to light, Alex and Sibylla’s fates become inextricably entwined. Will Alex choose the safe and secure path he knows, or will he reject holy orders to embrace his true destiny...and the woman he loves?

A Beautiful story with a wonderful narrator!

Before I start my review I just have to say that I might be acquiring an addiction to Audiobooks. The narrator has a wonderful sexy deep voice with an authentic Scottish accent. The Gaelic language is one that I have never really pronounced properly and now I don't have to. Joshua Manning does it for me. Now on to my review.

I am sure that I am not the first American to get frustrated by the complicated history of the British Isles. It seemed that everyone thought they had a legitimate right to the throne of Scotland. All the politics, treachery, betrayal that went on sometimes had me giving up on a book. When I was in school we were taught American History, and I am woefully ignorant of the history of a Country that has been around for thousands of years.

But I am learning, and Victoria's Virtue is a stunning novel of Love, Beauty, and Faith with the backdrop of a time and place she invites you into, I was enthralled from start to finish. This is a truly a love story for all time. Alexander has spent his life in a Monastery since he was 4 years old. He only has vague memories of his family. He has never thought about leaving the monastery because he has nowhere to go. Then he is sent to the Castle Kilmuir to tutor the heir.

Sybylla lives at Castle Kilmuir with her brother and cousin. She has never been kissed and has not met any man that tempts her. She is expected to make a advantages marriage that will be an ally and support her brother's ambitions. Just when she thought that she would never find love she meets Alexander. They are instantly attracted to each other. Alexander knows that he can never have her, he is penniless and has no way to support her. Sybylla doesn't care about that, she loves him.

They will become hostages of the expectations of Sybylla's brother, the King and the politics and dangers of the time that they live in. There are no love matches, only arranged marriages that will benefit a family, clan or throne.

Victoria's descriptions of the Highlands of Scotland are magnificent. The story is wonderfully intricate and the characters unforgettable. I have always been a fan of Victoria's Historical Romance and consider myself her #1 fan. If you love romance, stunning writing and Scotland you have to read this book.
