Born to the blade and raised to fear no one, Deirdre of Rivenloch never shies away from a fight and never turns her back on a threat to her land or her family. But she’s never met a man like Sir Pagan Cameliard, the bold and powerful knight who comes at the king’s command to make a marriage alliance with Rivenloch. To save her younger sister, Deirdre tricks Pagan into marrying her instead, and now she faces a new kind of enemy who crosses swords with her by day and lays siege to her heart by night.

Deirdre, Helena, and Miriel, three kick-arse Scots wenches known as The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch, aren’t about to become any man’s chattel, until they meet heroes who are strong enough to tame their wild ways and worthy enough to win their wayward hearts.

Lady Danger 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 79 reviews.

Well written but extremely slow and frustrating, the heroine is cruel to her husband, which makes very annoying to keep reading. If the other 2 are the same, I doubtly spend the money. It's no fun to be frustrated while you do something you enjoy as much as reading.

4.5 stars. This is one story that improves as you progress through to the end. I didn't care of Deirdre at in through over half of the book plus the beginning was drawn out. But oh, how it improves and the ending (battle) was so vividly written, I felt I should have a sword to help defend. The secondary character's are so richly written too. There is lovemaking, that happens (finally) within marriage. Pagan has the patience of a saint! I am not going into the storyline as others have explained it, but this is a unique storyline. I have my suspicions as to who the Shadow is, so will be completing the series so I can be sure, plus the next story seems to has to be filled with fire and brimstone, since it deals with sister number 2 and Colin. I read the Shipwreck first, which is the prequel to the sister's stories. As of now this book is free, and worth your time because of the last 1/3 of the book is amazing. (ljb)

The leading lady is a bit of a jerk. I'm all for strong women, but she was something else. However the story is pretty great.

I found this story to be an okay read. It is the first in a series of three but I think I will stop with the first. I use to devourer this type of story but my tastes have changed. If you enjoy story set in Scotland, using scenarios that are farfetched and a little dragged out you should enjoy this story.

I am giving this book a one star mainly because I hate how slow going it is. Sure the protaginst is hell of a character and incredibly strong but it just wasnt suspenseful enough for me. I am currently on chatper 14 and literally everytime I look at the book I sigh because I don't really want to read it. Thank goodness it was free and I didn't have to waste money on it. Will probrably not read the other books in the series.

Loved the book couldn’t put down. Loved the characters. Deidre got on last nerve but loved her spank. Pagan was such a patient man. He truly was honorable. Can’t wait to read Helena and Colin’s story. Very well written will recommend it.

The storyline was good if rather unrealistic and the characters were fairly well developed. I appreciate a strong female character but these girls were a bit too much. There was a lot of repetitiveness but, still it was an enjoyable read. This is book one in a series. There were a lot of loose ends which left the reader feeling the book ended before the story finished...not quite a stand alone book. I assume the whole story unfolds and reveals within the other books should you be enticed to purchase and read them...

I got this book a while ago and it got lost in my library. I really loved the characters. This is one that I thought the male was so handsome. It was the way the characters were discribed. There wasn't a part of this story that was boring. I found the female was strong and they both were well matched. This was one of the best I have read

Really good.

I really enjoyed this book. I saw some who reviewed it said that the female lead was harsh and a b* itch to her husband. But when you think about it, how would you expect someone to act in a marriage that they didn't want, and when they feel that they are loading the power they once had. I feel she kept up her contempt long enough to seem believable, some books it seems that they comply too easily/ soon. I plan to look into the rest of the series by this author.

Far fetched story but well written with interesting characters

I love a great historical romance, especially set in scottland. I even love a strong female lead. This is not a strong female lead, this is a cruel woman that does not know the meaning of compassion or love. You don't treat anyone you love the way this character does, it's borderline sadistic .

Lady Danger is the first of a trilogy of novels set in the 12th century Scottish Lowlands in the reign of King David. I confess, I devoured this entire novel in one sitting one rainy afternoon, curled up in front of a fire in my favorite reading chair, so my sheer enjoyment of it may be colored by the setting in which I read it. (That said, I read the majority of "Captive Heart," Book 2 in this series, in a doctor's office and enjoyed it just as much, so I suspect I would have enjoyed the first book just as much without the rain, the wine, the fire or my favorite chair.) This light-hearted, fast-paced historical romance was an utterly enchanting read--the perfect entertainment for a quiet afternoon. While not the weighty, intellectual fare of Crime and Punishment or The Doll House, Lady Danger's strong female lead kept me entralled as the entire novel unfolded and left me eager for the rest of the novels in the trilogy. In Lady Danger, we meet the Warrior Maids of Rivenloch, three sisters who cooperate to keep their land and people well in their piece of heaven in the chaos that reigns across the border under the regin of King Stephen. Rivenloch survives and prospers in peace, until word comes that King David has granted the keep and one of them as a bride to Norman knight Sir Pagan Cameliard as reward for his service in the Crusades and for his loyalty in times to come. Certain that she is the one with the strength needed to "manage" Pagan so that the sisters can continue to run Rivenloch for their aging and incapacitated father, Deirdre is determined to sacrifice herself what she is certain will be an unwanted marraige. But from their very first meeting, sparks fly between Pagan and Deirdre and Pagan. Unwilling to be "managed," yet drawn irresistably to Deirdre all the same, Pagan, at first, has trouble reconciling his own ideas of what marriage should look like with the strong, beautiful, independent woman he has married; however, through sometimes heartrending, sometimes hilarious plot twists and turns, Pagan and Deirdre forge a union that ensures the future of Rivenloch will be both strong and eventful. Previous reviewers of this novel bemoan the lack of strict adherence to the historical record in the details of Lady Danger. In my opinion, Glynnis Campbell's work is well researched, and where possible, both events and characters conform to what is known, but there is a great deal more about this time period that we don't know. I applaud Campbell's use of artistic license in these cases to fill in imagined, yet realistic detail to render a vivid portrait of clan life in Medieval Scotland. For those who are looking for more scholarly, footnoted works, may I refer you away from historical romance literature and over the nonfiction literature? In my opnion, if you are expecting strict adherence to historic detail and timelines, you should be disappointed if you read literature in this genre. Lady Danger is a delightful work of historical fiction that delivers all the imagination, romance and colofully rendered versimilitude the genre promises. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and look forward to reading more from this author.
