This was my first Garnett book, but it won't be my last. I like historical romance where the setting is believable and the heroine isn't a ninny! Throw in a great romance and suspense and you have a very good book. This one had me hooked from the first chapter, and I couldn't put it down!
Proud and fierce, Alexander Fraser fights for the lands and title the English stole from his family-and for the Scots dream of freedom. Now he's lost what's closest to his heart: his younger brother Jamie, captured by the ruthless earl of Warfield. Determined to free Jamie, Alex boldly takes a hostage, the earl's daughter Catherine. But the delicate maiden he locks in his craggy castle has more mettle than many men...and more passion than any woman he has ever known. Even as Alex and Catherine rise scandal and insurrection to the indulge their desire, he knows he must someday give her up...or forfeit his brother's life.
