Customer Review

on 19 August 2011
James II is on the throne of England, James Sinclair is fighting for the King but will change sides or religion, without a thought if he thinks it will benefit him. A young lad is captured after a battle by a group of men intending to torture and kill him they have him surrounded, then suddenly they realise the lad is in fact a woman. Jamie to stop the men ravishing her marries her, for to him she looks like a noble lady perhaps with land and gold. Catherine Drummond cannot understand why this Englishman has married her, but before she finds out even his name the camp is attacked, it is her clan so she escapes. Catherine is the daughter of the late laird of the Drummond clan, her cousin is now Laird and plans to marry her off to an Irishman, to be rid of her. So this marriage to the English Solider might yet be useful. What she does not know is Jamie is in pursuit, he wants to return her to England with him to have the marriage annulled. As King James has an heiress he wants Jamie to marry.
This is not a conventional romance, Jamie is a wastrel he drinks, gambles, is in debt, he is a womaniser. In fact if you do not like books where the hero is with women other than the heroine then this book is not for you. Catherine is no weak swooning limp girl, she is strong a warrior, proud of her clan. The characterisation is excellent the detail of the period is well researched. A very well written book. This basically is a 17th century bawdy romance. Unfortunately this is just not for me.
