Border lord Walter Scott of Rankilburn, grief-stricken after burying his father, goes to the forest seeking solace. Instead he finds a half-naked young lady fleeing pursuit. Wat offers his protection, but honor demands that he return the golden-eyed beauty to her rightful husband-even though the last thing he wants is to see her in another man’s arms.


Molly Cockburn has fled her home, family, and the brutal scoundrel she was forced to wed. Her pursuers are closing in when the powerful new Lord of Rankilburn bravely intervenes, then promises to help prove her marriage unlawful. Though fiercely loyal to her family, Molly fears they might harm the man she is coming to love, and now she must decide whether to remain faithful to her blood . . . or to her heart.



THE MOONLIGHT RAIDER by Amanda Scott is another exciting Medieval Historical Romance set on the Scottish Border in 1426. #1 in the new and exciting “Border Nights”. What a beginning! Fast paced and filled with adventure and romance. I love this author’s tales of Scottish Lowlanders, romance, adventure danger and love. This was no exception.
Ms. Scott is a true storyteller, leaving the reader in awe as well as intrigued. From the very first page to the last you will be intrigued. Filled with danger, the fascination of the Scottish Lowlands, family, the clan, King and Scotland. Ms. Scott creates an atmosphere of shear Scotland, so much so, the reader can almost feel the power of the Scottish threat. I loved to see how Walter Scott of Rankilburn,Laird, and Molly Cockburn,runaway bride of a brute come together to figure out their attraction to each other. While, Wat is determined to protect Molly from her family and her not so much husband, trouble is brewing. Can he save both his clan, help his King, and save Molly? You must read “Moonlight Raider” to find the answers to this exciting tale of romance and love. Ms. Scott is an absolute delight to read and an amazing storyteller. I can hardly wait to read the next installment. Well done!Highly recommend to any and all Scottish Historical Fans.
