    1. Lady Fiona Jardine was married to the heir to the Jardine lands, Will, and also carried his child The only trouble was that her husband was missing and many suspected her of killing him The Old Jardine laird was ill, so he called upon the Laird of Kirkhill to be trustee of both Fiona and the baby if Will does turn out to be dead Kirkhill quickly learned that Fiona wouldn t be easy to tame.This book just wasn t for me, but maybe Amanda Scott fans and fans of a old fashioned kind of romance will [...]

    2. I won this in a First Reads giveaway, because I did not read the description closely enough to realize it is historical romance rather than mere historical fiction I tend not to read romance, but as far as my experience with them goes, Tempted by a Warrior is not that bad The story if not the characters or the romance held my interest, and the historical in historical romance helps a lot Nevertheless, there are flaws in this book that are difficult to dismiss.Tempted by a Warrior is told in a li [...]

    7. Amanda Scott, you have done it again TEMPTED BY A WARRIOR is a fantastic book with a touching romance and enough intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat Following up to Seduced by a Rogue and Tamed By A Laird, this book continues with Ms Scotts lovely writing style and well developed characters.Normally I m not a huge fan of beaten down heroines It s just painful to read In this case, our beautiful Fiona is quite literally beaten down by her husband Will while pregnant Not the subject matt [...]

    12. This was a First Reads giveaway I didn t realize until the very end that it was the third book of a trilogy However, it stands alone well too.Lady Fiona is suspected of her husband s disappearance by her father in law and many others in her community When her father in law dies, Richard, Laird of Kirkhill, steps into to be the guardian of Fiona and her newborn son He is also intent on finding the truth about what happened to Fiona s husband Will However, he stumbles on a tale of an abusive husba [...]

    13. Tempted by a Warrior is book three of the Dunwythie Trilogy , but no need to worry This book works wonderfully as a stand alone I didn t read the first two books, and had no problems with feeling like I really missed out on things Amanda did a wonderful job rounding out her characters and gave enough to the reader so that by the end of the book I was charmed by all.The book is set in Scotland in 1377 and I was easily transported back to that time The language took a bit of getting used to, as it [...]

    15. I m giving this a 3.5I really enjoyed this book, but I think if I had read the other books I might have enjoyed it The characters were likable and I thought it was a little back slow in the beginning and the ending was a little rushed When the person that killed Will came forward, it just seemed rushed to me and that the person was like lol I killed him But don t hang me Okay the person, didn t laugh or anything but I just got the feeling that the person could take less that they killed him, wh [...]

    16. I am always a fan of anything Scottish especially historical romances, but this particular romance earned a less than average rating from me The story was dry, especially the romance portion of it I give credit to the hero s stern personality for being most responsible for making this rather a dud Although his character was meant to be stern and unbending, it was so much so that there were never any real sparks flying between himself and the heroine, and if ones ever lighted, he was sure to stam [...]

    17. Fiona s brutish, abusive husband is missing and it s suspected she had something to do with his disappearance Enter Richard Kirkhill who is left in charge of the estate and Fioina and her son.There was nothing really wrong here, except perhaps that they get together too early in the story It was okay, but didn t really keep me engaged I liked the characters but wasn t emotionally attached to either of them The story, over all, lacked punch in both emotional heft and something to make it differen [...]

    18. Although this is the third book in the Dunwythie Trilogy book one Seduced By A Rogue, book two Tamed By A Laird , it can easily stand alone This story has everything wonderful historical detail, page turning action and an almost fairy tale quality Fiona survives a troubled childhood and elopes with her love, Will Jardine, who turns out not to be quite that Richard turns up just in time knight in shining armor to help Fiona repair her life and add some spice I have read a great deal of historical [...]

    19. I thought this was a great historical romance At first I thought I was going to have a problem with it because it starts off with Fiona being beat by her husband but it turned out it was a very good read I havn t read anything by Amanda Scott before and found that I do like the way she writes The story came along rather nicely I do love a good historical romance and I was not disappointed with the way the story is told and I like the detail to the characters and surroundings I know I will be rea [...]

    20. This is a nice end to the trilogy, featuring appearances by characters from the previous two books and updating the lives of the three girls from Dunwythie Hall The intrigue of the first book isn t here, but I did find it exciting than the second The middle drags a bit, but the pace picks up substantially when Hod a servant who was asked to leave after Old Jardine died returns to cause trouble.

    21. Though the book was at parts a little slow, Tempted by a Warrior was an interesting read The heroine s back story was properly grim and the hero was strong and honorable Thankfully, Amanda Scott appeared to actually research for this historical romance She deftly blended history with fiction, creating a realistic and three dimensional world for her characters An enjoyable read.

    22. She is no Julia Garwood, but this last book in her trilogy was a good effort I found myself skipping lines and paragraphs toward the end just wanting to get it over with already Great storyline, although i thought it could have done with some real tensiondramatic irony, conflict, close encounters, teasers

    23. The story isn t too bad if you got the patience to stick with it its got endless dialogue, which gets repetitive in the most annoying of ways, real life like Such as a conversation happening, and then characters proceed to tell other characters about it verbatum, blah I also hated the somewhat moralizing tone full of condescension that protagonist employs with Fiona.

    24. The kind of book I hate admiting that I read I don t do it often But when the you need mind candy, you just need mind candy Sadly, not as good as I d hoped it would be Nothing quite compares with Jamie Clare Still, it did provide the escape I wanted.
