4 and 1/2 stars! Gripping Story Related to Border Chronicles Series

This romance is well named for it seems in it everyone is betrayed or betrays or both. It's a gripping story of love denied and reclaimed with all of the historical details and sensual scenes Small's fans have come to love. Like all her stories that I have read, this is not a typical historical romance. The hero and heroine are separated, people you come to love die...yeah, it's a Bertrice Small story.

This author's novels are my guilty pleasure. Not the greatest things ever written, but enjoyable all the same. This one was somewhat of an exception. I found the writing to be a bit of a better quality than some of Mrs. Small's other novels and the story slightly more engaging. Would recommend to those who enjoy Scottish historical fiction and reading about simple lives of the past, not necessarily constant adventure.

A little raw at times--but loved the story. Those Stewart kings were devious buggers!
It has been a long time since a book made me cry. Yes, I have read plenty of books that have saddened me, and moved me. But outright cry? Very few.

Bertrice Small' s books have been a guilty pleasure of mine, mixing romance with meticulous rendering of history, usually centered on real life monarchs of Medieval England and Scotland. I have enjoyed them all but never until Betrayed did I actually shed tears. I will not spoil the book. Just be warned, readers, that it is not your typical bodice ri

Rating: 4 stars

I think that this book was overall intriguing. If you are seeking for a heart-wrenching story full of betrayals and hurt then this would be good.
I loved Fiona's characteristics; humble and prideful. And I've also loved Colin so far, he's such a daring, determined guy, and to me it's so sweet how he loves Fiona unconditionally. This book didn't feature much about Angus sadly, but I loved him too. The events happening from one event to another, was great and didn't get me bored. The

As always it was a wonderful book. I have been reading her books for years. The only one's I don't care for are the very sexual one's, I'm more about the story

Good story set in 16th century Scotland!
The title Betrayed truly suits this wonderful novel. From the first page it caught my attention and I hated for it to end. It is definatly a book I will pick up again and read. Bertrice Small wrote a wonderful historical fiction novel when she put this to words.
This was a SAGA... I liked the strong female character as well as the the time period. England/Scotland 15th century. She does historical fiction very well.
Bertrice Small captures the character of the real King James I so well. I love her writing for its historical accuracy.
