    From the moment I saw that this book involved Scotland and a hig

    From the moment I saw that this book involved Scotland and a highlander, I wanted to read it.  I have an affinity for all things Scottish, even though I’ve never visited the country myself (though I desperately want to). It’s one of the main reasons that Gerard Butler is my perfect man, though he has many other fine qualities as well… but don’t get me started… -starts to stare off into the distance- … ahem! Sorry! Back to the review!

    Janet is a woman known by many names, and working undercover for the King (Robert the Bruce) to deliver important information about English Troops and where they’ll attack next. She is a nun, an apprentice, a daughter and a twin. Ewan is part of The Bruce’s Highland Guard, or “Phantoms” as the people call them. Amazing warriors, able to take on entire squadrons all on their own.  Ewan’s war name is “Hunter” — the best tracker in the land. And when Janet goes missing, Hunter is sent to find her. And find her he does…

    This book had moments that were thrilling and moments where I found myself skimming paragraphs that I didn’t think were necessary or just dragged on.  This is the first book by Monica McCarty that I’ve read, so I don’t know if it’s a common trait to have run-on sentences or if it’s singular to this one book.  The quote above is a perfect example. While some of them work for the book, others just get a little silly and your brain is fighting to catch up to what the sentence even began with. There is a four-page kiss in this book — no lie. Four. Pages.

    Over-all, it’s a good book, but the parts that I skimmed due to the story running stagnant were detractors. And it happened in all parts of the story — sex scenes, history, battles and general story line. So a 3.5 out of 5 from me.

    However, I did anticipate one special moment and when it happened, I did, in fact, giggle.

    “Damn it, Janet!” (-insert singing- “I LOVE YOU!”)

    If you’re awesome, you’ll get the reference. (Reviewed by Ginny)

    Good Quote:
    “And moments later when she looked into his eyes, as he stroked her to the very peak of passion, when her breath caught, her body clenched, and warmth spread over every inch of her, shattering into a blinding light, Janet knew something else: she was glad she wasn’t a nun.”

    I have been a long time fan of Monica McCarty's & have read

    I have been a long time fan of Monica McCarty's & have read all of her books she is a superb author, but this particular on just didn't make it for me. It wasn't a bad story just very predictable Knight meets lady overcome obstacle & happily every after. I will say though I love reading the author's notes MS McCarty does great research. I just hope the next one has more to it.
