This one was my favorite of this great series! I read this one first, but the first book in the series, Lady Danger, covers the same time period from a different point of view. I read them back to back because I loved this one so much, but Lady Danger seemed too repetitive of this one, and I liked the characters better in "Captive Heart."
La historia de Helena, se solapa con la de la entrega anterior, la de su hermana Deirdre con Pagan, avanzando un poco más, en el tiempo, ha sido agradable saber un poco más del castillo escocés asediado.

Sigo con la intriga (mentira cochina, porque me lo spoileé) de quién era la sombra, así que en este libro seguimos sin descubrirlo, pero en el siguiente ya lo haremos, por fin.

Aunque todas las historias de tira y afloja con personajes fuertes me apasionan, tengo que decir que al haber leído tanta

As the novel's blurb indicates, Helena is a Warrior Maiden of Rivenloch and the only thing worse than a rusty sword is a husband. When her father arranges a marriage between a Norman named Pagan (yeah, Pagan) and her younger sister Mirial, Helena and her other sister Deidre insist that one of them must marry Pagan instead. Why? I don't know. Apparently, because Miriel is too cute. Obviously, Captive Heart is part of a series (book two) and probably best read as such.

Deidre wins the "honor" of ma

The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch experience their worst invasion ever ... men ... who want to marry them. In order to save her younger sister from the horrors of marriage, the heroine tries to kill the groom, only to be caught by the poor man's best friend Super Warrior. Somehow the heroine manages to change the tables and kidnaps Super Warrior in the hopes of preventing the marriage. Of course, things don't go quite as she plans, and she spends a little longer than is believable thinking that mar ...more

A tale of bravery and romance from a time when romance was not only common, but required to get the girl of your dreams. For all you romantic book lovers, this is a must. I myself am not a big fan of romance novels, but this 3 part series has a special place in my heart. I am not a big review writer, so let me just say that I highly recommend you read this series.

It's a series and should be read in order. I enjoyed this short Scottish series because the women all new how to defend themselves--they were warriors. Neat read and nice to see something different in this genre from time to time. This author also writes under the name Glynnis Campbell.

Well, it's not the most innovated romance books, or even the most accurate...but I liked it and went ahead and read it in one day. I might try reading the other books, but it might be awhile, it's not a series that makes me want to run out and grab the next one immediately.

this book was really great.. Who said women are the weaker sex. Take three sisters one annoying groom, a kidnapped best friend, and a very weird sense of humor. and that is this book... i really liked it.
