Review for Abducted Heiress
Author: Amanda Scott
Date of Review: 01/14/02
Reviewed by: Deb Moores

Reviewer Comments: This is the first book that I have personally read by Amanda Scott, and this review is based entirely on the perceptions of this reviewer. While I enjoyed the story on the whole, there were moments during the reading of ABDUCTED HEIRESS that left me with the sensation that I might have missed something subtle along the way.

In ABDUCTED HEIRESS, Ms. Scott takes us to the misty isles of early 16th century Scotland, during the reign of James V, King of Scots.

The story begins when five year old Molly Gordon and her infant sister, Bessie, are abducted from their mother's care upon the untimely death of her father, Lord Gordon.

Twelve years later, Molly, known as the Maid of Dunsithe, is touted to be the wealthiest heiress in Scotland - unfortunately, no one, including Molly, has seen her fortune since the death of her father.

Living a life of relative freedom and content, her peaceful existence is shattered with the arrival of Sir Finlay Mackenzie - who has come to claim her as his ward, having been granted possession of her wardship by King James himself. He has only to obtain her custody from her current Lord, Donald the Grim.

The romance between the headstrong Molly and equally stubborn Fin transpires slowly, but surely, with a few stolen moments, a bit of political intrigue, some good old-fashioned adventure, and just a touch of fairy magic thrown in to keep things on the right track!

Overall, ABDUCTED HEIRESS is an entertaining read, the characters are enjoyable and lively, and I am looking forward to reading Bessie's story in the upcoming 2nd book of this series - The Secret Clan.

One last item of note - at the very beginning of the book, prior to the story, Ms. Scott supplies the reader with a brief pronunciation guide for some of the locations and names that are primary elements in the storyline. I found this to be a very nice touch!

Review for Abducted Heiress
Author: Amanda Scott
Date of Review: 06/28/02
Reviewed by: Danielle

Reviewer Comments: Amazing how one little push from a lovestruck house faerie can set off such a chain of events... Molly, the maid of Dunsithe, is said to be the wealthiest woman in all of Scotland. Except no one knows where to find her treasure. Seperated from her sister and taken from her home after her fathers death, Molly has been fostered by her uncle since she was only five. Many years pass, and life with her treasure hunting uncle has been harsh. Wanting only the best for Molly, the house faerie chosen to guard her decides to take matters into his own hands. Along comes Sir Finlay MacKenzie, a brave, handsome knight who has recently been named Molly's new guardian by King James. Through all the politics, adventure and danger, Molly and Fin discover the strength of their relationship. But there's still the missing treasure and the angry uncle, not to mention the meddlesome faeries...so it makes falling in love that much more interesting. I thought this was such a fun read. I enjoyed the characters for the most part, and although some areas of the book left me wanting more, all in all it was a good story. I look forward to the secquel...the story of Molly's little sister Bessie to be out before too long.
