Young Florie Gilder has always known that her biological father is a noble--her only evidence an heirloom gold belt. Living as a commoner, she earns her keep as apprentice-jewelry-designer in her foster-father's goldsmithing shop. Secretly hoping to find her real father, she offers to sell the goldsmith's wares in the town of her birth--at the Selkirk Fair. With her heirloom gold belt on display, she hopes it will be recognized by her real father. Leaving her booth at the Fair to take a moment's respite, Florie returns to find that a Lady Mavis Fraser of the Scottish court bought the gold belt (Mavis knows that her husband Lord Fraser would instantly recognize the belt as the link to the whereabouts of his illegitimate daughter whom he seeks to be reunited with, but such a reunion would foil Mavis's claim to her husband's estate). Florie, pursuing Lady Mavis, gives her back her money, wrests back the belt, and flees into the forest. Claiming Florie stole it from her, Mavis makes the authorities promise to find and execute Florie. Meanwhile, Rane MacAllister,a local hunter in the forest, mistakes the hiding Florie for a deer, wounding her with an arrow. He carries her to a local church where she will be guaranteed 40 days of sanctuary. When Lady Mavis hears the church has Florie, she commands Rane to guard her, but in the process he falls in love with her. Lady Mavis sets fire to the church, hoping to kill Florie, but Florie escapes. Rane's penalty for letting her escape will be death. At the eleventh hour, Florie returns, and must decide which she wants more--Rane's life, or her noble lineage... (2011)

Ohhh.. reading book like this makes me feel soooo good. It is just perfect! The hero is to die for and the heroine is wonderful! It is just easy to fall for both of them, to cheer them to overcome all the difficulties! Another great thing is that neither of them is noble-born, or better she is, but ...

This is a fantastic story about a strong woman who finds herself and comes to terms with a rogue who is really a sweetheart in disguise. I was also impressed that the romance (my wording for hot monkey love) was worked in so that you wanted it and the story wasn't dependent on it. I fell in love...

This was a fun adventure romance, with deep shades of Robin Hood plaster all over it. Some parts of the book did take some getting use to, but once this book picked up, it zoomed. Florie Gilder is on the run, after her heirloom was sold by accident, she asks for it back only it have the evil w...
