To say that Meghan of Blackthorn is feisty would be an understatement. Stubborn? That doesn’t do it. In fact, it may not be possible to find the word. Her story begins one cold dawn in 1074 in the northwest of Scotland. Choosing to sneak out with the men, she soon finds herself being driven to ground only to be captured by Rolf MacDaidh, known as the Lord of Vengeance, a man she once loved. What follows can only be described as a battle of wills. As they try to force their wills on one another, a rollicking story unfolds, replete with curses like “Lucifer’s bloody toes,” “Lucifer’s poxed arse,” and “Lucifer’s fetid teeth!” At times their battles bring to mind Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew (only on steroids!). Overall, this is a humorous tale well told. Romance lovers will devour this one.
