Tamed By A Laird

by Amanda Scott

     

Ms. Scott’s Scottish Romance soars with intrigue, exciting characters, and a wonderful setting.  The hero and heroine are a bit different in their personas and the heroine a bit younger than I like to read about in Scottish romances, but it all plays out to make a remarkable skit of sensuality and love.

Baroness Easdale is betrothed to a man of unlikeable character, by order of her guardians.  She is distraught, but when circumstances allow for a brief respite from his company and that of his older brother, she takes it for divine intervention.  Along with her maid, she casts her lot in with a traveling band of Troubadours and soon finds she is center stage with one Sir Hugh Douglas, her fiancé’s brother.

Hugh has been skilled in assuming many disguises, but when he takes on the role of a player to find and bring back a runaway fiancé, he discovers that all the skill in the world cannot help him with one wee lass.  Jenny is as canny as she is buxom, and he soon finds he wants her more than he wants peace in his family—since taking her for himself could result in a battle royal with Reid. He tries to convince her to return home, and they both find themselves headfirst in a plot against the aristocracy of Scotland.

Together they fight, love, and plan only to find what they seek most is a treasure of the heart.  They just pray that the powers that be will allow them to live long enough to accomplish their goals.
