Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-Meridene is destined by birth to turn the rule of Scotland over to her husband, but her cruel father would rather kill her than give up his kingdom. His enemy, King Edward of England, arranged the marriage between Meridene and Revas, a butcher's son, when she was only a child. For her safety, she is raised in an English convent, but 13 years later Revas kidnaps her to fulfill the legacy that will enable him to become king. He also wants her to learn to love the Scottish people, their culture, and himself. Lamb has provided a detailed, entertaining plot set in 14th-century Scotland with well-drawn central characters. Although somewhat similar to the novels of Julie Garwood, the dialogue is not as witty and the story itself moves at a slower pace.

I thought this was a great historical romance set in a time you don't usually read about. I don't think you can really compare one author to another and be fair because each person brings a little something to a novel that is unique. Ms. Lamb's take on the story is refreshing and I could not put it down.

Strong yet witty male lead, stubborn lady.  Better writing than most, but some parts were difficult to understand.  I will read another of Lamb's novels.
