Forgive me for being English Friday
The Raider by Monica McCarty
Of all Bruce's elite warriors, Robert "Raider" Boyd is the most formidable. A true patriot whose bare hands are a deadly weapon, Robbie is the fierce enforcer of the Guard, and his hatred of the English has been honed to a razor-sharp edge. But vengeance proves bittersweet when his enemy's beautiful sister falls into his hands and he finds himself fighting temptation—a battle he badly wants to lose.
Lady Rosalin Clifford barely recognizes the rebel prisoner she saved from execution six years ago. Though her girlish ideals for fairness have matured into a passion for justice, Rosalin believes she betrayed her brother when she helped this dangerous man escape. Now her traitorous act has come back to haunt her. But she can't deny the longing this tormented warrior ignites in her, or deny the passion that turns sworn enemies into lovers. Is the gentle love of a true English Rose enough to free Scotland's most brutal warrior from a path of vengeance—before it's too late?
Woo Hoo! I loved it as always! I discovered Monica McCarty a couple of years ago when we chose The Chief as out book club book of the month and I've been reading ever since. I'm not sure what it is about this series that I love but it may or may not be the whole "knight in shining armour/kilt". I'm not owning up to it if it is. LOL Although Rosalin is one of the more dainty ladies of this series she definitely shows that she has a "pair" when she set her brother's worst enemy free after his capture. Rosalin stands by her brother and his honor even when he looks guilty and he never lets her down. Indeed what she says is true his love for his sister is stronger than his hate for you.
