I didn't like this book at all. I thought it was bit long wind. I never read anything by Bertrice Small before and I don't know if I will again. I wanted something light to read between books and I had to slog through a poorly written historical fiction book/romance novel. ( )

I enjoyed other books in the Border Chronicles series rather more. I found this one to be just going through the motions. ( )

Book description
blurb: Orphaned by England’s War of the Roses, betrayed by her half sister, Elizabeth of York, Adair Radcliffe is taken captive during a border raid and sold into servitude to Conal Bruce, the laird of the Cleit. The laird seeks a housekeeper and a bedmate - but instead he finds that beneath the girls dirty, disheveled appearance is a proud and spirited violet eyes beauty, who refuses to be tamed. It is she who will teach the stubborn Scot that love recognizes neither borders nor rank……

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451219783, Paperback)

Adair Radcliffe is only a child when her family perishes in the War of the Roses, so her real father, the womanizing King Edward IV, takes her in, honoring his promise to her mother. Once Adair turns sixteen, the king marries her off without her knowledge - and to her later outrage - in a wedding by proxy. But when tragedy leaves her a widow twice over, Adair realizes that her already tenuous social position has sunk even lower. Now, all she can do is hope that the Scottish laird to whom she is sold will have mercy on her. But little does master or servant suspect that love knows no rank.
