Enjoyable read. Meridene is betrothed to Revas when they are both no more than children. King Edward sends her away to England shortly after the wedding ceremony is performed when an attempt is made on her life by her own kin. Young Revas vows he will come for his child-bride.
Thirteen years later, Revas makes good on his vow. Unfortunately, Meridene wants nothing to do with him or Scotland.
Revas was adorable...a strong, handsome warrior determined to win over his bride. Meridene was a bit stubborn but her fears were not unfounded. I found this to be a charming story with a likable hero and heroine and secondary characters guaranteed to bring a smile to one's face.
A woman born to greatness...wed as a child to the butchers son (in order to halt the line) the Maiden of Inverness was swept away to a nunnery and out of the hands of her people.

Along the way he has become a mighty and fierce leader and she has grown cold to her past. He seduces her to try to get her to fulfill her vows and she ends up softening towards him. What follows is a FANTASTIC love story that you will never want to end! 10 stars!
