KIRKUS REVIEW

 Historical high jinks in medieval Scotland, as the ``wild, untamed'' Jane Leslie, daughter of the steward of Dumfries Castle and a woman gifted with the power of healing, finds herself increasingly fascinated by the handsome, brooding, and secretly desperate Lynx de Warenne, a warrior nobleman more concerned with finding a wife and fathering a successor to his knightly holdings than subduing the unruly Scots. Inevitably, Jane and Lynx find themselves involved in a convoluted relationship, and beset by all manner of troubles. Henley, the author of 14 previous romances (including a first hardcover, Dream Lover, 1997), knows how to keep a plot galloping along. That, and an element of frank eroticism, make this one an enjoyable (if unsurprising) addition to Henley's shelf of historical romance genre.
