An arranged marriage to a Scot? Unacceptable!

Lady Sarra Bellacote would sooner marry a boar than a countryman of the bloodthirsty brutes who killed her parents. And yet, despite—or perhaps because of—her valuable holdings, she is being dragged to Scotland to be wed against her will. To complicate the desperate situation, the knight hired to do the dragging is dark, wild, irresistible. And he, too, is intolerably Scottish.

Giric Armstrong, Earl of Terrick, takes no pleasure in escorting a feisty English lass to her betrothed. But he needs the coin to rebuild his castle, and his tenants need to eat. Yet the trip will not be the simple matter he imagined. For Lady Sarra isn't the only one determined to see her engagement fail. Men with darker motives want to stop the wedding—even if they must kill the bride in the process. 

Now, in close quarters with this beautiful English heiress, Terrick must fight his mounting desire, and somehow keep Sarra alive long enough to lose her forever to another man…

The author does a great job of pulling the reader into this exciting historical romance of attempted murder, romance, and intrigue with an extremely well developed storyline.

I enjoyed Lady Sarra's strength and stubborn will power. It was enjoyable watching her resisting Giric and fighting her attraction as well as everything about him. If I were back in that time I would like to be like her character feisty but elegant.

Giric is one of those men you just need to know more about because of his dark mysteriousness. His past is something he wants to hide from Lady Sarra at all costs but this past has created a character that the reader has compassion for. We are shown a clear view as to why his past and future are so different and how they make this character someone worth reading.

I am giving this a 5 star because even after reading TEN other books after this I still think about it and want to read more of her work.

 I was given this ARC by NetGalley for an honest opinion.
