TAMING A WILD SCOT

She seamlessly weaves an unusual romance with the intrigues and power plays associated with the era, greatly enhancing the story’s emotional power. Readers will eagerly look forward to the next installment.
After being falsely accused of murder and imprisoned in a dungeon, healer Ana Bisset believes she will never see the light of day. Just as all hope is gone, a hooded stranger takes Ana on a wild ride to freedom that ends when the mystery man leaves Ana to settle into a village where she will be safe. She never expects to see her savior again, but Niall MacCurran comes back into her life in need of her help. Niall has been on a secret mission to ferret out a grave danger to the realm and to rescue his brother when he finds Ana near death. After rescuing them both, Niall takes Ana on a quest for a traitor that leads them to capture, a face-off with the church and a ruthless man bent on seeing Ana burned as a witch. But it is their growing desire that truly threatens their lives. (SIGNET, Nov., 368 pp., $7.99)
