2007 Scotland-Set Historical Romance Nominee – RT Book Reviews
In the Scottish Companion, Grant Roberson, the 10th Earl of Straithern, desperately needed two things: an heir, and an answer to the mystery of who was trying to decimate his entire family. The heir could be obtained by an expedient marriage – a young woman by the name of Arabella Fenton, who proved to be as disinterested in love as he. The mystery might take a little longer, but he was determined to find the person responsible for the deaths of his brothers.
The story of The Scottish Companion fascinated me from the very first moment I envisioned Gillian – the companion who was trying so very hard to put one foot in front of the other and simply endure her life. Yes, she had been foolish, and yes, she had been unwise in love. But who among us hasn’t been, a time or two?
