From USA Today Bestselling Author Madeline Martin comes a steamy, suspenseful full-length novel in her Borderland Ladies series where dangerous lands make dangerous ladies...
A LADY WHO WILL DEFEND HER FAMILY AND HER CASTLE...
Lady Marin Barrington, eldest of the Earl of Werrick's five daughters, is a born protector. Not only has she taken on the role of mistress of the castle and caregiver to her sisters upon their mother's death, she also acts in her father's stead while he is serving the king abroad. Dedicated and resolute, failure is never an option for her. So, when a reiver forces his way into the castle, Marin won't surrender easily and takes it upon herself to kill the usurper. Except plans go awry when passions are awoken and matters get complicated.
A MAN WHO MUST SUCCEED NO MATTER THE COST...
Bran Davidson's sister is going to be hanged, unless he agrees to take Werrick Castle. Ever a pawn in a rich man's game, Bran has no choice but to force his way into Werrick on behalf of the Scottish Middle March Warden. He quickly discovers getting into the castle is the easy part. Dealing with its mistress, however, will take every ounce of cunning and determination he can muster, especially when she turns his blood to fire.
A PROMISE THAT CHANGES IT ALL...
In a game where desperation and love dictate the lives of many, a simple promise can change the tide of favor and open the door to pleasure and danger alike.
I throughly enjoyed this book. It was not only a good story with good character development, it was well edited. I so appreciate reading a book without having to stumble over typos, poor grammar and the like. This one offered no hiccups at all! Thank you. I will enjoy reading more from this author in the future. WELL DONE.
Very good book, well written with engaging characters. Worth the time to read and finish the series.
Could’ve been better
Strong characters, good story, but too much time devoted to “sex scenes “ instead of more storytelling.
