Summary

Set in treacherous sixteenth-century Scotland, the first volume of Amanda Scott’s Border Trilogy tells the unforgettable story of a woman sworn to defy the knight she is forced to wed - only to discover a love she’ll do anything to claim.
As Mary, Queen of Scots, languishes in the Tower of London as a prisoner of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth, war tears Scotland apart. To save her beloved homeland, a proud Highland beauty named Mary Kate MacPherson must wage her own battle when she’s forced into wedlock with a knight, Sir Adam Douglas, from the barbaric borderland of Tornary.
Even as she succumbs to her seductive husband’s sensual demands, Mary Kate vows never to give him her heart. She will belong to no man. But Adam burns with something deeper than desire. Sworn to carry out a long-awaited revenge, he won’t rest until he has vanquished his enemies. Accused of treason, the last thing he expects is to lose his heart to the woman he’s determined to tame but never to love: His own wife.

Superb

What did you love best about Border Bride?

I love that the Author can truly paint a picture with words, and that the Narrator Sally Armstrong did an amazing job with the accent making the story more authentic.

What did you like best about this story?

The story keeps moving through Scotland with the Author describing everything so vividly.
I 'saw' the Castles, the clothing, the colours and clearly pictured the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just couldn't stop listening to this book

Any additional comments?

WHY are there no more of the MANY Highland themed books by this Author available? More Amanda Scott PLEASE.

Not my idea of romance

I'm not sure how the physical and mental abuse in this book can be classified as romance. It definitely isn't to me. Both characters are unlikable. She is a complete idiot and he is an abusive jerk. A prime example is when he slaps and berates her, then apologizes for saying he shouldn't have married her, and she immediately runs into his arms. I seriously think this is a little sick.

The only reason the "story" didn't get 1 star is because, for some reason, I couldn't stop listening. Morbid curiosity, maybe?

The narration, however, was exceptional!!
