From a USA Today bestselling author comes a tale of love and intrigue
A lute player's disguise seems the best way Abby Gordon can avoid her enemies, until the castle's mysterious hostage, Iain MacGregor, proves that danger can come in many forms and so can love. When Abby first arrived at the castle she thought it was a safe haven from the treacherous French court, but she becomes increasingly aware that it is the centre of turbulent Scottish politics. But is Iain really a hostage to fortune or is he playing his own dangerous game? As her feelings for Iain grow and the web of danger entangles her more Abby wonders if the biggest deceiver of all is her heart.
With spice, wit and action packed plotting, Kristin Gleeson's Highland Ballad Series is as compelling as Diana Gabaldon's Outlander novels.

The Hostage of Glenorchy
You know a story is good when you get to the end and you want it to continue. I want to find out what happens next in Abby's life. Ms. Gleason made me feel the general attitude of men towards women back then and I didn't like it! Lol
If you like spinoffs, this is the book for you
I thought this was a good book when I was first reading it. All the Scottish speak was new to me and I thought it was neat, but then I saw Outlander and realized that this book is practically a spinoff off of that, with perhaps some Game of Thrones characters mixed in with it. -Definitely not a “must read.”
The Hostage of. Glenorchy
Very enjoyable, interesting, and educational.
