Lord Dominic is in need of a wife. With the reivers, the wild and dangerous criminals that haunt the borderlands, breathing down his neck and his brother now married, he needs a strong woman by his side. So when he finds out about an old marriage contract between him and his neighbour’s daughter, he vows to give the mysterious woman a chance. Upon meeting the beautiful, feisty maiden, he vows to make her his wife.
Lucy Montgomery wants nothing to do with the arrogant lord. She doesn’t understand his interest in her. Surely a man like Dominic could never fall for a woman like her? Hurt by the past, she refuses to believe that she is anything more than a game to him. If only she didn’t find him quite so charming.
Can Dominic persuade Lucy that she is more than just another woman to him? And with the reivers growing bolder, are there worse dangers than Lucy saying ‘Nay’?
Borderland Beauty is book two of the Borderland Legacy series by Samantha Holt. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first one, Borderland Bride and adored it. Ms. Holt has the ability to write her characters so in-depth that you don’t even notice that it’s a novella.
This story does a flip-flop from book one. The heroine is the wary one and has destined herself to be an old maid. The hero is as self-assured and alpha as they come. However, despite this Lord Dominic has a heart.
Lucy sees herself as the proverbial Ugly Duckling and is self-consciousness. However, the storyline was very realistic and I loved that she didn’t just swoon at the hero’s feet. She made him work for it. I love a strong heroine.
If you love medieval romances, strong-willed ladies, and chivalric lords you don’t want to miss reading Borderland Beauty by Samantha Holt
