This was not as good as other Small books. I was somewhat disappointed with the predictable plot and bog down of details in scenery.

Continuing the Skye OMalley Legacy, BESIEGED follows the adventures of Lady Fortune Lindley as she returns to the land of the OMalleys.

Lady Jasmine, her husband James Leslie, and Lady Fortune arrive in Ulster where Jasmine hopes to find a suitable husband for Fortune. Aside from this, Fortune is due to inherit Maguires Ford, an estate where Protestants and Catholics peacefully live togetherif she marries a Protestant.

William Devers seems a likely candidate for a husband. But his mothers overpowering prejudice against Catholics and her schemes to expel them from Maguires Ford cause Fortune to pause before making the wedding arrangements.

Then Fortune meets Williams brother Kieran, whos been disinherited because he is a devout Catholic. William may be the logical choice for a husband, but Kieran is the one who arouses her passion. Will William stand in the way?

With the plot centering on the historical basis for the Irish Problem, the animosity between Protestants and Catholics, Ms. Small brings a new dimension to a world problem. Only someone of Ms. Smalls caliber could create such a marvelous sensual read and make history relevant. BESIEGED does just what the very best of historical romance should do: educate, stimulate and arouse. SENSUAL (Mar., 333 pp.)

Although not one of her best I enjoyed this book. Having read the entire series the characters feel like old friends. it is always fun to connect with friends after years have passed....a reunion of sorts. As a geneology buff, who loves living in NE for its history, I learned a great deal from this book about the way life might have been for many of my ancestors who came from this part of the world, and were the foundation of this great country we enjoy today.

Unlike her mother, Lady Jasmine, and older sister, India, Lady Fortune Lindley spares little thought for romantic love. With her fiery red hair and proud beauty, Fortune has no lack of suitors. William Devers is an ideal match---wealthy, well-favored, and eager to have this free-spirited creature as his wife. But it's William's disinherited brother, Kieran---ruggedly handsome and dangerous as sin---who sets Fortune's senses reeling. Caught between the desires of different brothers, Fortune ignites both passion and revenge, and discovers a destiny that tests her will to claim a new land, and the one man she will love forever...

Not as good as her earlier books. However, I would say it is usual romance quality, I just typically consider her books above average. It is important to read this one if you are going on to the next book in the series as it involves the birth of Jasmine's last child, which is the main character in the next book.

The continuing saga, Skye's Legacy, with the moving tale of Jasmine's younger daughter, a courageous beauth determined to follow her heart.
Nearly a spinster at twenty, Lady Fortune Lindley is leaving Scotland to return to her birthplace at Maguirej's Ford, a vast Ulster estate that she will inherit only if she marries an Irish Protestant. To that end, Fortune has agreed to a match with the Protestant aristocrat William Devers, a man suited to her wealth and status. But it is the rebellious and disinherited Catholic elder brother, Keiran Devers, who steals her heart, driving William to a black and murderous fury. Very good reading.
