    Disappointed.

    [CAUTION: SPOILERS] I was interested in reading this book because of the plot the book was sold on. A rough and common Highlander must impersonate a nobleman in order to rescue Queen Mary of Scots, with a little romance on the side. However, I was quite disappointed in what the book turned out to be. Rather, it was more like: an obviously Mel-Gibson-based-hunk-man-hero can only think about kissing the most beautiful woman he's ever seen in his life, and, oh yeah- there's a plot in here somewhere. I personally believe that romance hinges on suspense. Although there is some of that, the characters confess their love for each other about a third of the way into the book, and then the rest of it is spent in them trying to figure out if the other loves them. (????) If you like romance novels, this book may interest you. I personally don't go in for the excessively romantic stories because I find that the romance is usually over done to the point it makes me laugh. I found this book often repetitive in it's conversations and many scenes seemed to not really have much of a point [for ex., Heather's fall in the pond and resultant sickness that was told in about 4 pages]. Descriptions were either repetitive, over done, or lame. This book would have had a good plot going for it. Yet, much of what could have made it more interesting was usually skipped over and summarized in a sentence or a chapter near the end of the book. I would have preferred reading more about what the Heather taught Duncan in their lessosns, and wished the author had elongated the part of Duncan's performance at Lochleven. If I were Heather, I would have felt miffed at the end of the story because Duncan never apologized for the way he acted. I really hate being negative about a book written about a contemporary author, so I will include some positives about it: Believable characters and great character development. For me, the story became more interesting in the last several chapters.
