Publisher's Summary

Amethyst de Burgh has been sent by the archbishop as assistant to her uncle, the master mason in building a castle for the border lord, Marcus Montclair. She has always dreamed of this opportunity, but knows a woman in this position would not be accepted if it wasn't for the sealed and stamped missive giving the order, sent by the Archbishop himself.
Marcus is not pleased when a woman shows up saying she is the new assistant to his master mason. And when his father arrives with a missive from the king, things only get worse. Now he's expected to marry the girl when she challenges his every word.
With his castle unfinished and his defenses low, he knows it won't be long before the Scots come over the border and they are attacked. But facing the enemy isn't half as challenging as dealing with his new wife.
A hardened border lord and a headstrong woman are forced to work together to change their ways. And in the process they learn that things are not always as they seem....

in my belief this is the best book of the four. I wish I had to read them first but I read the one about the son before period. This author is one of the best I've ever read. There was a lot of details in this book which made it I think one of the better of the 4th although the other three were wonderful. Elizabeth Rose will be one of my favorite authors and look forward to reading more of her books.

Most enjoyable experience

This is my first audio book and loved it. Being able to do things while listening to a great story and a great story teller, made the experience very enjoyable. As usual Ms Rose wrote a story full of love adventure and action. The characters where well developed and your felt for them in their times of trouble. As usual she also included a number of side characters to keep the story interesting.
The narrator Brian J. Gill did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. It was so nice having someone pronounce the words as they should be said instead of trying to guess. Now when I read another of Ms Roses books, I can hear Brian in my head reading to me. I look forward to listening to more of his audio books and if you haven’t tried one, this is a good place to start.
