Cecelia Mecca continues her excellent stories with this latest in the border series. Although mentions characters and events in previous books it is in itself a stand alone story (although it is better to have some background info). Graham and Gillian are forced to marry after being caught kissing in the garden. Each have troubles to overcome and need to start trusting each other. Cecelia makes the characters and historical era come alive - you just want to be there with them. As with Cecelia's previous books once I start reading I find it hard to put it down. I received a complimentary copy from the author and voluntarily write this review.
