it was amazing
Recommended for: anyone who loves medieval Scotland
Read from July 23 to August 27, 2010 , read count: once

I loved everything about this book. It wasn't a broad, epic, historical, but it was meaty in its love story with medieval Scotland in the time of King Jamie as its backdrop. Amber and Krayne were the best alpha heroine/heroes I've read in a long time. Amber proves to be feisty, intelligent, and yet a bit clueless sometimes about men. Krayne is the true alpha warrior: Laird of his clan at 14yrs old, refuses to take no for an answer, and canny in his use of politics. I loved the fact that Ms Robyns stayed true to history, although some of the "neanderthal" statements and actions Krayne takes with Amber may make modern-day women cringe a bit, this was the way it was in that century. Women were property and always held under guardianship by some male member of their family or their husband. In the end, Krayne proves worthy of true love, as does Amber. It's entertaining, with a timeless love story. What could be better?
