A woman locked in her past and the fierce knight determined to set her free...Amanda Scott returns readers to the fourteenth century Scottish Borders, when men battled sword against sword and the hills echoed with the thunder of a thousand hooves.
Unfit for marriage? Young, fair, yet mistrustful of men, Amalie Murray harbors a secret--one that could keep her single for life. At the coronation of the King of Scots, she overhears the plotting of a terrifying act...and virtually falls into the arms of Sir Garth Napier. Moved by her plight, Garth knows she now desperately needs protection--especially from her own stubbornness. Their unexpected passion and desire make Garth coax the truth out of Amalie, and make him more determined than ever to keep her safe. For though Amalie may be an "inappropriate bride," she's a woman he would gladly die for.
This book was really hard for me to get into. I'm not sure if was because I didn't read the first book or because this book had so much history in it that I was having a hard time believing that I was reading a historical romance because it felt like I was reading a history book.
I couldn't connect with the characters, I couldn't really get into the story because it was very wordy and I kept falling in and out of the story. There was so many words in the book that it was very easy to put this book down and do other things. I couldn't stay into the story to save my life so I put it down for good and am not sorry for it. I will say this though, Sir Garth was a hottie. One of those mysterious heroes that is quiet and lethal. I loved that but as hot as Garth was, I couldn't connect with anything else and after about 100 pages into the book, I gave up.
