    This historical romance mystery novel, set in England and Scotland, is a fast paced, enjoyable read. Alaric, our flawed, but lovable hero is almost immediately attracted to always positive, intelligent, adventurous Emma. Their growth in serious, and sometimes humorous situations will entertain you immensely. All in all, a wonderful read you just can’t miss!! Thanks for creating such memorable characters. -Jan Farrell Repath
