Historical and political details abound as Scott draws readers into a marriage-of-convenience and battle-of-wills romance. Not only do her characters leap off the pages, the historical events do too. This is more than entertainment and romance; this is historical romance as it was meant to be.

Caught stealing back his own cattle, Sir Walter Scott is to hang until his captor gives him a choice: the noose or marriage to his daughter. Wat realizes that Lady Margaret Murray is no beauty, but marriage is the better alternative. Meg knows Wat is loyal to Scotland and her father to Hotspur and the British, but this is her chance for happiness.

All is well, until Meg discovers her brother spying on Wat for Hotspur. Meg is caught between her love for her husband and her loyalty to her family. (Forever, Mar., 300 pp., $6.99)
