Intrigue and sizzle
Amanda Scott is one of my favorite authors, and she did not disappoint with Border Moonlight. Sibylla is the perfect character to wrap a story around, she's spirited, confident and sassy. Watching her relationship with Simon Murray come to life kept this reader up late into the night turning the pages. The story is full of intrigue and sizzle with a little humor thrown in. Border Moonlight kept me coming back for more right through the final chapters. This book will be on my list of must read again.

In 1386 Edinburgh, at the altar, fourteen years old Sibylla Cavers says no to a marriage to ancient Lord Galston. A year later she is at the altar where she meets her latest groom for the first time, but says no again when he cannot even smile; he vows vengeance for her impudence. Two years later she informs her irate frustrated father Sir Malcolm she will not marry his third choice who spends all his time with his men. Her father writes her off and plans to arrange his next oldest daughter¿s marriage, praying she is more biddable.

In 1391, Sibylla is riding alone when she hears a child¿s scream. She sees the lass drowning in the nearby river and makes a gallant attempt to rescue the young lass from the current, but is hurt in the unsuccessful process. Laird Simon Murray returning home accompanied by a small contingency saves her while his men rescue the child. He takes the injured Sibylla home even as both recognize one another from her jilting him at the altar over three years ago. As they become better acquainted with one another, they fall in love, but trouble on the border appears ready to divide clans in a potentially ferocious war.

This is an exciting Border romance with plenty of action as strife seems everywhere starting with an abduction. The story line is fast-paced from the opening moment when the intrepid Sybilla says no to the priest in front of her father and others and never slows down until the final clan confrontation. Amanda Scott fans will enjoy her latest medieval romance starring a brave female and the arrogant laird in a terrific historical gender war.

More of a dense historical, political intrigue than straight romance. So if you are a fan of Heather Graham like style you will enjoy.

Really awful and boring. Lengthy descriptions of humorless people doing every day tasks. Skip it.

I liked the part where Simon steadied the log while rescuing Sybillia.

This book is fine, as long as you are willing to accept that impossibly clever women are drawn to ridiculously stupid men and that lust is an excellent foundation for a relationship.  Simon was a parody of the male dominant reality of that era while I was half expecting to learn that Sibylla had time traveled back from the modern era.
