I was certainly tempted...

My Goodread’s review of the historical romance, Tempted by a Warrior by Amanda Scott.


Trapped in an abusive marriage, Lady Fiona’s life is a living hell until the day her husband Will goes missing.  Though she does not mourn his disappearance, Fiona worries that she had something to do with it but cannot remember any of the events from that night.  All she can remember is Will striking her, then nothing until she wakes up alone in her bed.  However when Will’s cousin Sir Richard comes to investigate the disappearance, Fiona finds herself drawn to the brave knight.   Despite her disdain of marriage, she begins to trust Richard with her biggest secret regarding her husband and her heart, but will conflict drive Fiona and Richard apart?


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.

3 Stars
