Overview

"Arnette Lamb has a tremendous gift for writing genuine, warm, humorous, sensual love stories. Border Lord is stupendous!” —Romantic Times

Lady Miriam MacDonald came to Scotland seeking peace between the Scots and the English—instead, she got the admiration of two men. The kindly, awkward laird of Kildalton Castle becomes a trusted friend, but the dashing and mysterious Border Lord, disguised by midnight’s cloak, becomes much, much more.

Behind Duncan Kerr’s disguise is a lifetime of anguish. Relinquishing his birthright as laird of Kildalton for the role of Border Lord could cost him his future, but Duncan knows that if his true identity is discovered by the beautiful Lady Miriam, he will lose the thing he holds most dear—her heart.

The award-winning author of The Betrothal offers a new, passion-filled Scottish historical romance. A beautiful diplomat from Queen Anne's court comes to Scotland to negotiate peace between the Scots and the English--and is swept into a tempestuous affair with the Border Lord, a legendary, masked Scottish rebel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The superheroes had best look out, for there's a new laddie on the block: Border Lord. Like an 18th-century Superman, Duncan Armstrong Kerr, Earl of Kidalton, convinces Lady Miriam MacDonald that he is a mild-mannered, bumbling Scot with thick spectacles and a kilt. But at night he becomes Border Lord, galloping across the countryside, tartan cape flying, to ``mete out justice'' when English baron Aubrey Townsend or his household ruffians cause trouble. Queen Anne has sent Miriam, ``star of her diplomatic corps,'' to settle the ongoing hostilities. Though Duncan is charming in a bashful sort of way, he's just as unhelpful as Aubrey when it comes to clearing up the dispute. No wonder that Miriam, though ignorant of his true identity, is seduced by Border Lord's straightforward lust in a late-night encounter. Lamb ( The Betrothal ) makes her story so intensely dramatic (and drops so many mentions of men's testicles, or ``lady crackers,'' as they are called here) that it transcends silliness and ends in sheer boredom. (Feb.)

    To most, a romance between Lady Miriam MacDonald and the Earl of Kildalton seemed most unlikely. Miriam was a seasoned diplomat from Queen Anne’s court, on a mission to bring peace to the border lands. On the other hand, the earl was merely a bumbling, awkward nobleman, who apparently spent most of his time fishing and designing unique fishing lures. Or was he?

    Over the weeks, Lady Miriam begins to see some inconsistencies in the bumbling earl. For one thing, he resembles the handsome adventurer, the Border Lord, a nobleman who attempts to right every wrong inflicted upon the local populace. By any chance, could they be one and the same man? Miriam sets out to discover the truth and, in the end, gets more than she bargains for. Worthy reading for a lovely Saturday afternoon filled with historical romance and intrigue.

    This is a story that I remember from when I was in middle school. The author, Arnette Lamb, had such a way with words that they just jumped out from the pages at you and put you right there in the book, in the scene with the all the characters.




    The Hero, Duncan Kerr is out to reclaim his birthright from the treacherous Baron Sinclair . By Day, Duncan is laird of Kildalton and by Night, he is the Border Lord, fighting injustices to his clan.




    Lady Miriam was sent to try to broker a peace treaty with Duncan but the only thing that ended up happening was that Duncan and Miriam couldn’t broker anything. Arguments happened. Misunderstandings Happened. Slowly they fell in love and that is when the real fireworks happened. Because by day Duncan was the Laird of Kildalton but by night, he is the Border Lord.




    Duncan is hilarious, while Miriam is splendidly BEDEVILED as she is swept off her feet by Duncan's "alter ego." The author, Arnette Lamb, had such a way with words that they just jumped out from the pages at you and put you right there in the book, in the scene with the all the characters. I truly love this story. I cant wait to read next up in this series, which is Border Bride… I give this story 5 stars. It is a story of heartache, of loss yet at the same time, it is a story of new love, of seduction

    SimplyThe Best...

    This is one of the funniest, romantic, and intriguing books I've ever read. Duncan and Miriam were so good together, they loved each other very much and their troubles were realistic. Just a great, great book. (I thought the sequel BORDER BRIDE would be as good but I was sorely disappointed; it was just too boring.)
