About the Book
In 16th century Scotland, young Miss Florie Gilder runs away from her drunken foster father to find her real father and her noble heritage. Along the way, she is accused of theft, becomes a fugitive hiding in a forest, and is accidentally wounded by a handsome local huntsman. The huntsman--a Robin-Hood figure who poaches wild game from the landowner's estate to feed the starving poor--carries the beautiful maiden to a church where she is guaranteed 40 days of sanctuary from the law. During that time, he learns her true story, falls in love with her, and helps her in her quest, at the risk of his own life. Smitten with him, she worries more for his survival. But enemies of the state are seeking to overturn the Catholic royals, while a vicious noblewoman is out to destroy Florie.

This was a decent book. I liked the story, Florie trying to find out who she is, while falling in love with Rane who has some "finding" of his own to do.
I liked Florie, she was determined, if nothing else. Then there was Rane, I liked him a lot. He was so strong, and yet so sensitive. They made for a great couple, lots of sparks flying there.
The writing was pretty good. The story had a good pace, the characters were well developed. There was just something that I didn't fully connect with in this one. It's not that I didn't like it, I just didn't love it. But it kept me reading till the end.
I think my issue is that I'm getting burnt out on historical romance. I need to get myself into a few books from different genres. Variety is the spice of life, right?
I did like the story, and it did hold my interest. So I'd have to say it was worth the read.
