I picked up this book randomly off the library shelf earlier today, since I was in the mood for a strong Scottish Laird. I did get that, but that was about all. ;-)
The story is basically interesting, but it focuses more on the polictical strife, backstabbing and the mysterious gold treasure than it does on the actual romance. In fact, the hero and heroine have hardly any page time together. They didn't even meet until we were 20 chapters in!
It was a little slow going, but I wouldn't say I regret the time invested.
