Moonlight Raider (Border Nights) by Amanda Scott
The Borders, Scotland,1426. Ettrick Forest on Clan Scott lands. A young woman, Molly Cockburn has fled into the night in nothing but her chemise from her father's keep. Pursued by her brother's sleuthhounds and her enraged family, she is escaping the travesty of a forced marriage to a brutish clan leader.
A young Scots Lord, Walter Scott of Rankilburn, newly come to the position by way of his fathers death grieves his loss alone in the forest he rules.
Romance, lawlessness, and fulfilling promises to the King all become part of the story. Wat (Walter) is an honourable young man with an icy temper. Molly is an innocent young woman, grown to womanhood amongst men. Her knowledge of relations between men and women is sadly lacking. Which is a piece of information that becomes an important part of the plot. Well crafted this is all in all an engaging story.
