National bestselling author Amanda Scott sweeps readers back to the turbulent fourteenth-century Scottish Borders, where valiant men and women risk everything for their land. Jenny Easdale is ready to accept her fate. She's agreed to marry a man she will never love - yet not before slipping away for one last adventure. Following a traveling minstrel troupe, she's whisked into a world of intoxicating freedom. Then, all too soon, she finds herself in danger - from a vengeful political plot against Scotland and from the man who has come to take her home. Dutybound to return with his brother's wayward bride, Sir High Douglas is not prepared for how her quick wit, courage, and laughing eyes touch his warrior heart. Now, as the merry minstrels play matchmaker and passion sparks between Hugh and Jenny, the conspiracy against Scotland builds...and threatens all they hold dear.
I really liked reading this book. Historical fiction has always been my passion and Amanda Scott did not let me down. She obviously conducted quite a bit of research into the period and the setting. The story, albeit fiction, was realistic because of her diligence to keeping facts intact and her attention to detail. I enjoyed the storyline very much as well. The hero and heroine were well developed and unique and I found myself within the pages of the book fully envisioning each character and setting. I want to know more about Jenny and Hugo and their escapades, and cannot wait to read the sequel to this story. For that matter, I may read the book again because I found it quite enjoyable.
