Johanna was married to an abusive husband but now that he is dead King John wants to marry her off to one of his favorite Barons. Her brother helps to marry her to Highland Lord Gabriel McBain. He is as different from her husband as can be. They don't start off well. She seems timid and cowardly and he just wants her to "rest". But eventually she stands up for herself and takes charge and wins the hearts of her people and Gabriel.

This is a fun historical romance set in the 1200s. I like the time period since it is different from your regular historical settings. Johanna and Gabriel are your typical romance characters. He is big and gruff but softens when he realizes he loves her. She starts of quiet and shy but becomes strong and independent because she is secure in her love for him. Of course there are hurdles that they must overcome but that is the fun of one of these books. This is an enjoyable escape.
