This is the 2nd book of the Border Trilogy, and I enjoyed it as much, probably more than the first, because I was more familiar w/the political characters of the period, thanks to the first book. Once again the story line was appealing, and held my attention. I noticed, after reviewing the first book, that several readers gave it a poor review....and I really don't understand why. If you don't like medieval romance or the history of that period, why bother to pick up a book of that sort to read ...more

It's the coronation of Robert the III of Scotland. Sir Garth Napier, newly minted Lord of Westruther is watching Amalie Murray, one of Princess Isabelle's ladies in waiting.

It's not too creepy. He just can't keep his eyes off her. In a good way. If there is one. Anyhoo, he's intrigued. He "just happens" to follow her into a residence that not many people should be entering and catches her eavesdropping through a door (she heard voices, thought one might be her brother Simon, and the next thing s

The year is 1390 in Scotland.

It is time to crown the new king of Scots. Amalie Murray was just going about her business when she overhears some men plotting to over throw the new king. Someone is very desperate to rule, Scotland and he will do anything to gain control even if it means taking anyone who stands in his way down. When Sir Garth Napier catches Amalie eavesdropping at the door, he briskly takes Amalie away. Garth demands to know what Amalie was doing spying. Amalie tells Garth that s

This was a nice change for me. I don't typically read Scottish historical romance novels or novels set in medieval times but I fell in like with this story. This novel depicts 14th century Scottish politics and the inner workings of titled Scottish families. This novel was not only about romance but political shenanigans and the race for power in Medieval Scotland. The hero and the heroine fell in love slowly but surely, there was no ravishing going on and it made their romance sweeter. I really ...more

Book 2 in the Border Trilogy was better than book 1. I would give it 2 and a half stars if possible because so much of it is historical data. It continues with Amalie's story which was so disturbing in book 1. The politics of fighting for land and power in the border region of Scotland is a great portion of the book, but there is a romance too. Sir Garth is charged with serving Isabel the widow of James and meets one of her ladies Amalie who has vowed never to trust a man nor marry. There friend ...more

Nice fun book with a spunky and likable heroine and a dynamic hero. Enough real history of the time to be interesting and never for minute did you think anything really bad would happen to Amelie or Garth. I have read too many grim historical novels of late this is a nice change.

I know Amanda Scott has written many books this is the first I have read, will try another soon to see if this style is in other books as well.

Too much Scottish history and not enough else. Characters were unbelievable for the most part -- it had incest, murder in huge amounts, family issues, and even some love. Not one of my favorites.
It was the green dress that caught my interest and start reading this book

I liked...

The continuation of the stories for these characters. The book had a little too many names. The plot was a little convoluted but I barely put it down. I'm going to read more by this author.
