GIVEAWAY & BLOG TOUR: Tempted by a Warrior by Amanda Scott (Book Review 2010-113)

Product Description

Lady Fiona, wed in haste, has never known marital peace. When last she'd seen her cruel husband Will, he'd struck her - and she has no memory of what she did next - only that she woke later alone in her bedchamber. Will has gone missing, and Fiona fears that in her rage and terror she might somehow have killed him. When her husband's cousin Sir Richard comes to search for Will, Fiona is touched by his warm nature. A knight and warrior, Richard is drawn to Fiona's brave manner, quickly seeing in her an equal measure of inner courage. Confessing that she fears having killed Will, Fiona accepts Richard's offer to help her. Pursuing together the mystery of Will's disappearance, they fall in love. Meanwhile the English are reinforcing their garrison in the Scottish Borderlands, putting Fiona, Richard, and Scotland in peril.... (2010)

LOVED IT

Although this is the third book in the Dunwythie Trilogy ( book one Seduced By A Rogue, book two Tamed By A Laird), it can easily stand alone.  This story has everything:  wonderful historical detail, page-turning action and an almost fairy tale quality.  Fiona survives a troubled childhood and elopes with her love, Will Jardine, who turns out not to be quite that.  Richard turns up just in time (knight in shining armor?) to help Fiona repair her life and add some spice.  I have read a great deal of historical fiction about this period and Amanda Scott really does it justice.

  6. There were several interesting things at Amanda's website, I had never heard of the Sputnik gifted program. I also thought it was interesting that both her mom and aunt were child actors. Her aunt was even in some of the Our Gang comedies.

    When you are writing a series, do you know it is going to be a series when you start? Or is it something that sort of happens during the writing process?

  45. I love Amanda Scott's books. I have the first 2 in this series and would love to win this 3rd book.

    Though Amanda lives 1 hour north of me, and I visit the area at least twice a year it is not to see her. (I found a nice port at the Tuscan Castle over the hill last month.)I do that at the Scottish Games in Pleasanton Labor day weekend. See you next month with a new book in hand for you to sign!
