A cute book set in 15th century Scottland. Heroine is a 17 year old Scotts-woman who has wound up captive of the hero, an Englishman who is her clan's greatest enemy. A lot happens in this story and it was certainly entertaining but a bit shallow. I found myself skimming a lot, the story's formula was predictable and while the characters had a lot of charm, I didn't fall in love with anyone. There is a bit of a spanking moment if you like that kind of thing, it wasn't the best, but there it was.
Really?! This author really needs to get her facts straight. 1820's England, and the elite are dining on... fresh lobster?? um NOOOO!!! Lobster was not considered a delicacy then. Lobster was considered a scavenger, a bottom feeder, unfit to eat... thus only fed to slaves here in America. It was not considered as "real food" until the slaves started asking for more. And as much as Americans did not like the English then, they DID copy them in everything fashionable, including food.
And more little things, like "she went downstairs at 5 minutes past 11, (but) the clock gonged 11 as they went out the door. huh? so the 5 minutes in the drawing room went backwards?
And... she drags the simplest little scene out for too many pages!!
A romantic and humorous read.
