A friend of mine gave me this as a late joke birthday gift. It's a typical romance novel, not too poorly written, and if one is able to ignore the complete lack of knowledge of historical period and accept it as a 21st century bodice ripper set in a Dark Ages Scotland about which the author knows nothing, it wasn't all that bad. Her attempts at dialect are stilted and often incorrect, and the characters behave in ways that are undoubtedly anachronistic, but the plot has some interesting twists. The sex scenes are not too painful to read for the most part, although I found myself cringing at the bizarre euphemisms used to avoid using more blatant slang or physiological terms. I'm not sure how cryptic one has to be in these cases to avoid the designation of soft-core porn ;-)All in all, a fun read at the end of a long day of BBQing and drinking gin & tonics ... and I have to admit, I would definitely NOT kick Cullen Duncan out of bed for eating crackers.
