Penniless and crippled, Sabine de Saint Montagne is a reluctant lady of the chamber
to Mary, Queen of Scots. All she has left is the Queen's promise that she
will marry a good man.


Lord John Campbell, Privy Council and promised to Sabine, decrees it is now legal
to hunt down and kill those of clan Gregor, headed by chief Niall MacGregor.


One day at the market, Niall inadvertently steals the pouch Sabine keeps tied
at her waist, which contains her most prized possessions. To get it back, she
forms an uneasy alliance with Niall; promising to get him an audience with the
queen without him being killed or captured.


Ms. Holcombe has a hit with her debut book. The characters are well drawn. The
description is vivid and evocative. All in all, this is a lively and entertaining
read. SENSUAL (Nov., 277 pp., $5.99)
