Simon can't believe that he would fall for someone so independent and stubborn. And Sibylla wants to stay single.

is the third book in the
. Amanda Scott has a knack of telling a story in a way that makes readers feel as though they are in the castles watching events unfold. Sibylla and Simon are both lovable, and well suited for each other. The Scottish dialect and historical context suit the story well and are not overwhelming.
makes a great weekend read.
