A READER'S OPINION
REBEL OF ROSS is a captivating story penned by Scottish author, Mary Lancaster. The author's love for Scotland and history are evident in this sweeping medieval novel packed with romance and adventure. The addition of real people and events made the story that much more interesting. Christian and Adam are both strong and worthy characters among a large cast, and it takes a little patience to keep them (and the events) all straight in the beginning. A truly endearing love story set during a fascinating time and in a spectacular setting, REBEL OF ROSS offers readers of medieval romance everything they could possibly want.

Malcolm MacHeth, one time Earl of Ross, languishes a prisoner in Roxburgh Castle while his sons raise rebellion in his name. Optimistically, the King of Scots promises the earldom of Ross to landless Norman knight, Sir William de Lanson, if he can somehow defeat the infamous MacHeths.
It wasn’t quite how William’s disgraced wife Christian dreamed of coming home. Capture by the strange and ferocious Adam MacHeth was hardly part of her plan either, although she and William quickly become pawns in his.
Adam, warrior and seer, fights for his father’s freedom and for his family’s right to claim the kingdom of the Scots. Plagued by waking dreams which threaten his sanity and his life, he’s learned to use his prophecies to further his family’s goals. But when he abducts his enemy’s lady, his dreams and his desires are suddenly more personal.
Surrounded by intrigue, ambition and betrayal, Christian must choose between loyalty and love in order to keep a fragile peace for her people and for the man she loves beyond all reason.
