The weeks or months leading up to a new release is often fraught with questions & concerns for an author. Will the book be well received? Will readers enjoy the story? Or, will they even find the story? So, when a starred review rolls in from Booklist I breathe a sigh of relief & shout for JOY! This reviewer has a very poetic turn of phrase and captures the gist of The Rose & the Thistle in a fresh way – “love under siege.”

Here are a few review highlights…

“Frantz stakes her claim once again as a preeminent literary force for Scottish historical romance.”

“Frantz remains poetic in her craft and rewards readers with a colorful brogue, picturesque settings, and passionate characters.”

“A masterful achievement of historical complexity and scintillating romance sure to thrill readers with its saga of love under siege.”

Thank you, Booklist!
