Bride of a Scottish Warrior by Adrienne Basso
Sir Ewan Gilroy is newly knighted and in desperate need of a dowry and a wife. Ewan is famed for his charm but widowed Lady Grace is determined that it will not work on her. Ewan feels that Grace’s plans to enter a convent is a waste of both her beauty and her fortune. Even with her family urging the match Grace proves to be a challenge for Ewan as no woman has ever proven to be in the past. She proves to be his equal in both spirit and passion.
Grace feels that to atone for her past she must never remarry. Most certainly not to a brash and reckless warrior. Yet Ewan proves to be man beyond compare no matter if he is defending her honor or stroking the desire that she never dreamed she possessed. With the newly formed trust between them threatened by treachery, Grace must decide if she wants to reach for the happiness that is suddenly within her reach. And if she is willing to fight for the love of one very bold Highlander.
This is story that takes readers back in history and brings that time to life. The story comes to vivid life with every word that this read. The characters are interesting and the plot pulls the reader into the story more and more with every page that is turned. The reader will get lost into another time and place and will mourn when the story is over even with the satisfactory ending. The action moves the story line along well and keeps the reader engaged with the story. It also gives some history for the time period that makes for an interesting read.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
