3.0 out of 5 stars Will it never end, 17 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Highland Rebel: A tale of a rebellious lady and a traitorous lord (Kindle Edition)
I love historical romances. I get hooked on the stories and can't put them down - usually. Too much historical fact got me bogged down. The actual story, gallant aristocrat saves heroine from a fate worse than death by marrying her. She, naturally, is a Scottish heiress as well as an amazonian warrior. After the hasty wedding and before he can find out who she is, her clan attack and she escapes in the melee and is rescued and taken home. Intrigued he follows her only to be captured and tortured by her relatives. Her clan want her to marry a Scot but when she explains she is already married they decide she must become a widow first. He endures his torture not revealing who he is and she stands by. If she says he's her husband they will simply kill him. Afterwards she helps him escape. Unfortunately the King wants him to marry someone else and when he reveals he is already married he is ostracised from court and to top this a scorned mistress is there to stab him in the back.. several times. So after nearly a year the heroine joins the hero and as she is a Countess he is reintroduced to court. Their hot and cold sort of romance and lots of court politics (politics is boring) and religion (even more boring) detract from the actual story. I tried to skip bits but it didn't do any good. In the end they go off together but it would have been better if they had done that half way through the book.
