Review of Warrior's Lady by Gerri Russell

Synopsis: "Camden Lockhart vowed to eliminate the Ruthven clan after they had destroyed his family. All he had left was a small niece and the legacy of the Charm Stone she carried, but no one knew where the little girl was.

Rhiannon Ruthven came to the abbey to escape the brutality of her brothers and find solace. Instead she found the orphaned Violet Lockhart in need of an escort to her uncle's castle. Rhiannon didn't know it, but she would be walking straight into a nest of assassins.

Whatching Rhiannon nearly sacrifice her own life to save another's, Camden knew he could not condemn her to death. He'd have to protect her from the very men he'd hired to kill her. Scottish legend said the Charm Stone had the power to heal, but was it strong enough to unite two wounded hearts."

My Review: I loved the characters in this one! Rhiannon is such a humble female lead, it was nice to see (even though I usually prefer strong female characters). I think Russell did a good job with the character's reactions to one another, especially Camden's. There was so much packed into this book, plague, feuds, and corruption in the church. All in all a great book and lovely romance. Definitely at least read until you get to the ice skating scene ;)
My Rating: The characters really made this story for me, I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
Please Note: there are a couple of sex scenes in this book but they can be skimmed over and don't take over the story if you wish to avoid them.
