Moonlight Raider by Amanda Scott

Moonlight Raider by Amanda Scott.

This is book 1 in the Border Nights series.

Shortly after losing his father, Lord Walter Scott of Rankilburn find himself walking the forest contemplating his new role. He comes across a half-naked girl on the run and offers her protection in his keep.

Molly Cockburn has fled her home the night of her forced wedding. Not knowing where to go, but needing to get away from the horrible man her brother forced her to marry she heads out into the night. When Walter (Wat) finds her, she doesn't tell him who she is in fear of him returning her to her family.

Upon arrival at the keep, Wat's family soon determines her identity and are determined to help her get out of her marriage. Molly is fearful of their help, thinking that her family will retaliate against them for it.

Molly's wedding is soon declared unlawful, but the only way to save her is to get her married to someone that can protect her from her family.  Since Wat has already promised her his protection, he is the perfect choice to fill that position. Can he convince Molly that marriage to him is the right choice?

I've read of all Amanda Scott's other books and enjoyed going back the the Highlands with her. While we didn't see as much of Watt and Molly together as I would have liked to, I still thoroughly enjoyed their story. Being such a big history buff, I really enjoy the historical facts that Scott weaves into her romances.

I loved Wat's grandmother and other secondary characters as much as the H/H of the story. I hope that when Scott continues this series that they are a major part of it too.

I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the series and can't wait to see what Scott has in store for us!!
