The Reluctant Highlander by Amanda Scott

This is a slow moving love story that is full of intrigue and action and drama and amusement. Adham is a simple knight, a gentleman and warrior, who King James asks to form an alliance with his most trusted advisor by marrying the man's daughter, Fiona. Fiona is a ladies maid to Queen Joanna, she's a simple girl who likes her privacy and a bit of freedom. They marry and go back to the highlands so that Adham can collect information about who might be plotting against the king. Throughout the story two bumbling idiots are trying to kidnap Fiona to use as leverage over her father. The storyline is rich with details and interesting characters. Adham is not a favorite of mine, he's too oblivious to his wife's feelings, wants and needs. I do love Fiona. She is feisty, but not overly much, and she is brave and has just enough independent tendencies to make her fun. My favorite characters though are Argus and Eos.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. This is my voluntary and honest opinion of it.
