Tamed By A Laird by Amanda Scott

About the book:
Jenny Easdale is ready to accept her fate. She's agreed to marry a man she will never love - yet not before slipping away for one last adventure. Following a traveling minstrel troupe, she's whisked into a world of intoxicating freedom. Then, all too soon, she finds herself in danger - from a vengeful political plot against Scotland and from the man who has come to take her home. Dutybound to return with his brother's wayward bride, Sir High Douglas is not prepared for how her quick wit, courage, and laughing eyes touch his warrior heart. Now, as the merry minstrels play matchmaker and passion sparks between Hugh and Jenny, the conspiracy against Scotland builds...and threatens all they hold dear.


my thoughts:
It has been a long, long time since I've read a book that took place in Scotland. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them (I've read ALL of Julie Garwoods books that were set in Scottland)! Amanda Scott is a fantastic writer that made the words come to life for me! In "Tamed By A Laird" you have romance, intrigue and best of all (for me!) a happy ending! I really liked Jenny, she is a spunky Lady that I would really like to know. Not many woman would make a great escape, for that one last adventure before marrying a man they didn't like or want. And Hugh. *Sigh* He wasn't impressive at first to me, but as the story unfolded the more I liked him. He has a great sense of whats right & how things should be. Best of all? This is the first book in a trilogy! So hopefully we will see a little of Jenny & Hugh in the future!
