Continuing the tradition of her Scottish romances, Scott has crafted another phenomenal story. The characters jump off the page and the politics and treachery inherent in the plot suck you into life on the borders from page one. This is the finest in historical romance.

Jennifer, the Baroness of Easdale, agrees to marry a stranger because her guardian claims she has no right to choose a husband. When she watches a troupe of traveling minstrels perform at her betrothal ball, she decides to have one last adventure before her marriage.

Since her maid's brother is a member of the group, Jenny feels safe joining them. As their travels progress, her abilities as a musician and singer garner respect from the troupe. The first time she performs she's accompanied by Sir Hugh Douglas, her betrothed's much older brother, who has joined the troupe under false pretenses. Jenny learns to trust Hugh, and their friendship grows as they try to protect their beloved Scotland from a vengeful, political plot and her guardian's schemes. (FOREVER, Jul., 388 pp., $6.99)
