Continuing the Grahams' epic saga, this fifth volume paints a sweeping, larger-than-life portrait of Robert the Bruce and life in the 14th century, as Scot Jamie Graham reclaims Hamstead Heath from the English.

Fearing for her brother's life and the king's wrath, Christina, Hamstead's chatelaine, plots to roust the Scots. When her plan fails, she begs Jamie to take her hostage. Though he has no need for one, and Christina is more trouble than she is worth, he is intrigued by the feisty English lady and wonders at her true purpose. Bringing her into the Bruce's camp places them all in a unique situation.

I loved the story and the characters. She really made you feel both sides of the issue and at times I didn't know who to agree with. The history lesson and introduction to major characters in history was certainly a plus too! The only area I had a problem with was the ending! It came much too soon and without any notice. I kept looking for some sort of closure between the charchters but in the end it was more of a history lesson and less of what I was looking for. :( Good story none the less, Shannon Drake is an excellen teller of tales!

The tides of war have turned for the valiant Scots led by King Robert the Bruce, and they boldly reclaim lands still ruled by the English. When Jamie Graham comes to seize Hamstead Heath, he has no need for a hostage -- not even one as beautiful and spirited as Christina, the manor's chatelaine. After her attempts to trick him fail, she insists that he take her away as his hostage. Though he is certain this confounding woman is trying to play him for a fool, Jamie is determined to claim the sweet temptation she offers....

Christina has but one goal in mind -- to free her brother from the fortress of the new English king who has accused her family of treason. Her growing love for her unwilling captor is both unexpected and thrilling, yet it must not deter her mission -- to master the art of jousting, win a tournament in disguise, and secure her brother's release. She cannot foresee the twist of fate that will threaten all she holds dear: her life, her lands... and the man who has captured her heart.

After finding out that we have a lot of Scots in our family background, I sure did enjoy Drake's story about life in old Scotland.
