The last place Sir David "Devil" Ormiston expected his moonlight chase of a horse thief to end was in a lady's bedchamber. He is shocked to find that the raider he has pursued is no man, but a defiant beauty in disguise-and the woman he's vowed to protect at all costs. Face to face with a girl Dev thought he knew, the ever confident, marriage-resistant knight may learn that he is defenseless against the desirable woman she has become.

Lady Robina Gledstanes will do anything to keep her family's land out of the hands of her greedy kinsmen-except willingly submit to the handsome, cocksure Devil Ormiston. Dev's help may be just as dangerous as the threats lurking outside her castle. But when enemies scheme to steal the castle's treasure, Robina must risk losing something even more precious-her heart.

Library Journal
Headstrong Lady Robina Gledstanes's twin brother, the laird, is killed in battle, and his best friend Sir David Ormiston (aka "Devil" Ormiston) is sent to Coklaw Castle to act as warden until their younger brother, the new laird, comes of age. Robby expects the fiery clashes that follow—but not the reluctant love that flares to life between her and Dev. An abundance of kinfolk—meddling and otherwise—a long-buried treasure, lively verbal sparring, and the heroine's psychic connection to her twin add zing to this vivid romance that provides an exceptional sense of time and place. VERDICT A fiercely independent heroine and a loyal, protective hero choose each other amid the turmoil of 15th-century Scotland in this beautifully rendered blend of history and romance. Scott (Moonlight Raider) lives in Folsom, CA.

Boring, repetitive and tedious read.

Get ready for another epic Amanda Scott adventure! I started this book while I was sick and just carried it around with me whining because my eyes couldn’t focus on the words long enough to read a sentence! Hubby was not impressed. Robby & Dev are terrific characters. They’ve been friends for a long time but never have they needed to depend on each other or looked to each other as more than an accessory of Robby’s twin (Dev’s best friend). While Robby is a bit immature in some of this I think it’s much less than would be anticipated at her age and just makes her that much more fun. She has a certain flair for words that just makes one laugh out loud. More… Author: Amanda Scott Source: Grand Central Publishing via Netgalley Grade: A Ages: 16+

Devil's Moon is another great historical romance from author Amanda Scott. This story is second in the Border Nights series and takes readers to the border lands between Scotland and England at a very traumatic time in the history of both countries. Scott has a way with writing about this time period. She uses her vast knowledge of the times and customs to give readers a very detailed and alluring novel. Devil's Moon is about more than just two people falling in love... it's about family and loyalty and protecting your heart as well as you hearth. A great addition to the series! Amanda Scott is soooo very good at writing historical romance. She is what I would call a master. She uses the historical background to give the story authenticity. Scott did her homework for this series and it shows. Every description about the political climate and times is precise and detailed. The little things make all the difference in this one and she makes the story seem like a real account of what happened instead of fiction. A hallmark of a good author. Robina is a heroine after my own heart. She is a stubborn one and she does not see any reason to get married. She loved her older twin brother very much but his death in battle has left her in a precarious situation. She must care for her younger brother until he comes of age to rule as laird of the clan and she must keep the suitor and raiders at bay. I admire the Highland spirit and I think Robby personified that strong, resilience that the Highland people were known for. A wonderful character. Devil Ormiston was Robina's brothers best friend. They have known each other for years. But things are different now. Her brother is dead and she can't help but blame Dev for his death. On top of that he is only just now starting to see her as a woman and not the girl he grew up with. I loved Dev's determination to protect Robina and her home. It may have been a dying promise to her brother when it began, but it becomes much more than that. I felt like Dev was such a good example of a hero. He doesn't want to rule over Robina, he wants to help her. I found him intriguing and quite sexy. Bottom Line: The romance takes center stage in this one, because of the strength of Scott's ability to write good solid characters, but the historical aspects of the story were so necessary. I thought Scott got as close to fact as possible without going over the line. This story is fictional but it was so remarkably realistic that it was easy to forget at times that it didn't take place in history. An all around enjoyable story from a great author. Can't wait for the next one.

This is book 2 in the Border Nights series. After the deaths of her parents and older brother, Lady Robina Gledstanes has had to be "Laird of the Manor" until her brother comes of age that is until her elder brother's best friend steps in to take over.  Sir David Orminston promised his best friend on his death bed to take care of his brother and sister. When trouble knocks on their door, he soon realizes that he wants to take care of Robina for more reasons than that promise to her brother. Robina is not ready to submit to any man, but her feelings for David make her doubt her decision. As I've stated before, I love reading Scott's stories because they are so full of history and this story is no exception. Scott brings to life what it was like to live on the border between Scotland and England and the perils that it brought. David has known Robina for many years, but he is just now seeing her as a woman instead of his friend's sister. Robina must also change that way she sees David after all these years. They are both confused by their feelings and must learn how to deal with them. Another masterpiece by Scott and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
