Sir Finlagh “Fin” Cameron is on a mission for the heir to Scotland’s throne, who has sent him to the Highlands to persuade the Chief of Clan Chattan to arrange a secret meeting for him with two other great lords (the Lord of the Isles and the Lord of the North). Until Fin meets Catriona, however, he has no idea that her father was the Clan Chattan war leader who led them in the battle that wiped out many of Clan Cameron’s best warriors, including Fin’s own father. The sole survivor of that battle, Fin accepted a bequest of vengeance from his dying father, providing him with a dilemma to face as he begins to fall in love with Catriona. He is not the only one enticed by her charms, either. There are two other contenders, one of whom is his own master, the heir to Scotland’s throne. With royal mischief afoot, if Catriona and Fin are ever to find happiness, they must first avoid disaster that could change Scotland’s history, and find ways to be open and honest with each other. (2011)

This is the start of a new trilogy called the Scottish Knights and it starts off wonderfully. This one takes place in the 1400’s and there are quite a few plot twists to keep the story of Catriona and Fin moving right along. Catriona is young and headstrong and she saved Fin from an arrow years before. Fin is dealing with intrigue and finds himself taken with Catriona. I love how Amanda Scott makes the characters speak with an accent. I really feel I that brogue down by the end of the book. I received this book at no charge from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
