He is forced to marry...
Daniel Sinclair is charged by Robert the Bruce to secure the King's ancestral holding in the Lowlands - and marry the daughter of the castle's keeper to secure a shaky alliance. But the lass's spirit matches her fiery hair, and Daniel quickly realizes that the King's "reward" is more than he bargained for.
She won't submit without a fight...
To protect her secret - and illegal - love of falconry, Rona Kennedy must keep her new husband at arm's length, no matter how much his commanding presence and sinfully handsome face make her knees tremble.

The youngest Sinclair brother Daniel is commanded by King Robert to take over the leadership of a key castle on the Scottish border with England. He is also ordered to marry the daughter of the former castle’s overlord. This is where things get really strange. The daughter has been allowed by her father to wander out of the castle for years into the surrounding woods without a.guard! This is a turbulent time when no one is really safe and yet a young unmarried girl with position and wealth romps around without caution? Really?
When her new husband demands to know what she’s been doing almost every day when she leaves the castle she says “I’ll not going to tell you” and when he follows her, she becomes enraged and screams, “How dare you invade my privacy,” that was it for me. This was the 14th century. All women were essentially held as chattel. A woman who spoke to her husband in this manner could be beatened, imprisoned and denied the right to ever leave the castle again if her husband wished it. Invading a woman’s privacy was a non-existent concept.
The “bride to be” puts off the wedding night consumation by claiming falsely her period has started. But the women assisting with the bride’s wedding night would know she’s lying. Consumation night was a big, big event. Family ang guests would enter the bridal chamber and observe the couple undress and enter the bed. There would be lots of innuendos about the coupling. She wouldn’t simply kiss the groom after dinner and saunter off into her own bedroom.
iIf thewoman had started her period, her father and the bridegroom would be alerted. The wedding could be delayed. There was no rush in this situation. Then she claims a headache is disabling her and the frustrated groom just mopes around waiting indefinitely for her to get into bed! Marriages were made for political alliances and the transfer of wealth. No way would an adolescent chit be making the decisions about the first sexual encounter. This was so silly.
Finally, Ms Prince please stop having characters in the 14th century offer people “TEA.” Tea (derived from a Chinese word) was not imported from China until the 17th century. Herbal infusions were concocted in earlier times primarily to treat illness. Everyone drank ale (and in some parts of Scotland- whiskey). Try a little harder to infuse some authenticity into you medieval romances. What kind of editor do you employ?
This has more excitement, suspense and battles than the other's. It made for an exciting and unique story. I enjoyed how this author brought all the main character's from the previous books and included them in the last part of the book.
We get an HEA, series ended nicely, passionate lovemaking, great character development, and a spite fire of a heroine. Was some of her personality not fitting for the time, maybe, but I enjoyed her.
One reviewer said our h, by her actions, something awful happens (no spoiler), but her husband gave her permission and she wanted to share something with her sister in law. Her motives were good, just the outcome was bad.
Most of the reviews are positive, and I do recommend this series. (ljb)
