it was amazing

This is the story of James "The Black" Douglas and Joanna Dicson. It takes place during Robert The Bruce's attempts to regain the Scottish Throne and is part of Monica McCarty' hugely successful series of the "Highland Guard". I have thoroughly enjoyed all of this series and this is no exception. My only wish is that the story was longer.
James has a very healthy ego and is in the process of regaining the castle that was taken from his father by the English Crown. He spent his childhood loving Joanna Dicson and loves her still. He is so focused on what he must do to restore the Douglas family wealth and honor that he just assumes that Joanna will be by his side while he does what needs to be done, including marrying a rich woman from a powerful family who can help him achieve his goals. Joanna, who is far beneath him in the class system, never thought that this would matter to James, the love of her life. But this misunderstanding comes to a head when she realizes that she is pregnant.
