Grant doesn't treat her much better after taking her prisoner, even allowing his drunken best friend to nearly rape her on the dining tables in the main hall in front of his clan, who also hate her. Except for a few demands that Grant release her, Tory quietly and efficiently completes all of her chores under brutal conditions, and at the same time does things that eventually win members of the clan onto her side.
I had trouble swallowing the fact that a clan would leave Annie, a very young orphan girl, living on her own with no known home or means of being fed or obtaining clothing. The incident with Michael was baffling to me and I scanned back through the book trying to figure out who he was. He was introduced as though he were someone the reader should be famililar with.

It wasn't until I continued reading on that I finally understood this was his first appearance in the book. Most, if not all, of the misunderstandings and strife that occurs between Tory and Grant, does so because they don't communicate by asking for simple clarification. Finally, I found the extraordinary number of typos including the wrong title at the top of every other page, and once referring to Tory as "Catherine", the heroine of her next book very distracting.
While I didn't find this story so bad it wasn't worth finishing, I also didn't find it particularly engaging. It isn't something I would read again. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Chocolate in Scotland in? Chocolate came from the "New World" to Spain in the 16th century.

Or is theirs a love to last through the ages? England and Scotland Unite! The year is and such treatment is automatically bypassed when political and financial benefits accrue through such arranged marriages.
But what does one do with an independent-minded woman like Victoria who is refusing to cooperate and whose beloved grandmother's protection cannot help her here? Grant Drummond is about to avenge the death of his father, as well as numerous others slaughtered on the orders of King Edward. Grant is raging with revenge and attacks, afterward kidnapping Victoria. Both of their lives are about to change as they wed and must adjust to their passion and overcome their painful distrust fashioned from years of historical animosity.
Misunderstandings frequently fraught their relationship such as the secrets Grant hides. More than one character is living with a history of being unwanted, and this novel goes a long way to depicting the healing that can occur. At the same time Grant is joining William Wallace in the fight for Scottish freedom.
Irony indeed that laces the history of England and Scotland. Very nicely done, Leanne Burroughs!

Here at times may be seen about twenty women with matted hair, and face and hand most filthy, whose ragged clothing is stiff with accumulation of beer and dirt, their underclothing, if they have any at all, swarming with vermin.
Many of them are often drunk. These women are thieves, beggars and prostitutes. If any woman from the country is unfortunate enough to come amongst them she will surely be robbed of all that can be taken from her, and then, unfit for anything else, may fall to the level of the rest.
