Reader Review: Without doubt one of the best historical books I've ever read. A fascinating read, the pace of the narrative is exciting and the characters memorable. Duncan is chief and vassal at the same time without losing the brand of leadership - has been well worked by the author. Marian keeps her pride intact despite the dishonor, but humility is necessary at times, avoiding falling into the caricature of exaggerated pride. The two protagonists are balanced in the use of their qualities and flaws, nothing is too much to build the story, things happen naturally and are treated by both wisely. There is still a little mystery around the secret she carries that instigates and reading. Wonderful!
Medieval. Marian Robertson rescued a child and destroyed her reputation. Now, to keep her family safe, she must marry the stern, dark-eyed warrior negotiating a truce between their clans--and risk her heart to protect the truth.
Manipulated into marrying the exiled "Robertson Harlot," Duncan, peacemaker for the MacLerie clan, finds his new wife's courage and spirit make it impossible to resist her. But will he put his honor at stake to free her from her past--and claim her love forever?

Possessed by the Highlander
"Or his mouth!" another in the back shouted.
"I heard the tale that her legs can circle a man's girth and pull him into heaven's very grasp." This from the youngest of the group. "And her hair falls in raven waves down her back." Duncan swore he could hear an almost wistful longing in the voice of a boy on the verge of manhood.
"Nay, 'tis the palest of blond hair," called out another.
"I heard as red as Hamish's!" said Tavis.
They laughed at that bit of overblown if confused imagery, but the chuckling quieted quickly and Duncan realized they were all thinking the same thing.
"Aye, laddie," Hamish called out then as he tossed his head, making his dark red hair flow down his back. "And I heard the tale that her hair was all that covered the lass's charms when she were caught by her da, the old laird, wi' two men or mayhap three in her bed."
Duncan was tempted to warn them off, but Hamish began singing just then. It was a quick little tune that was familiar to all of them, but Hamish changed a few of the words and turned it into something bawdy about the sexual delights offered by the woman in the Robertson clan called the Harlot as well as her various physical attributes. Duncan let a few more minutes of merriment to go by before he finally intervened.
"'Tis one thing to say such things among ourselves, but talk like that could ruin all my efforts to negotiate with the girl's brother," he said, meeting the gaze of each one in turn. "Discretion is one of my important tools and I expect that you will guard your tongues. She is ruined and she was exiled. There is nothing else to say of her."
The men behind him grumbled under t...

This does complete the time- and money-wasting series. The story is quite slow going--I kept waiting for action of some sort. A couple of aspects were rather cheesy and again, the author seems to be following a template for writing (to make up for a lack of talent?). I also have a bit of difficulty enjoying a book written as if the author doesn't realize that readers have a brain and that we will notice discrepancies and errors. Bottom line: you're missing nothing if you pass this up.
