A fair-haired beauty at 19, Lady Mairi is heiress apparent to her father Lord Dunwythie's rich barony. He has carefully taught her how to manage their estates, but a feud between his clan and the Maxwell clan is brewing as the two families edge toward a clan war - their dispute over money owed. Mairi's father believes he owes nothing, and of course Mairi sides with him.
When the impulsive and blue-eyed Rob Maxwell chances to meet Mairi in a barley field, they feel instant attraction, despite their families' antagonisms. Knowing he must put his clan first, Rob enacts a plan to force Dunwythie to pay his debt: Rob kidnaps Mairi, making the abduction appear the work of a stranger; then he and his sheriff-brother offer to help Dunwythis rescue his daughter IF, and only if, he will pay them the monies due. Yet after Rob captures Mairi's body, she captures his heart. When Dunwythie summons the aid of the most powerful clan in all Scotland (the Douglases), clan-tensions rise to a fever pitch. Love takes its own feverish course, as Mairi and Rob join forces to prevent a clash between hot-headed clans, and to protect their budding love.

Praise For Seduced by a Rogue

For Border Moonlight:

"As usual, Ms. Scott's characterization keeps readers glued to the pages....A complex tale of politics, scandal and love. It doesn't get much better than that!"

For Border Lass:

"Border Lass is a combination of a charming romance, a tale of murder and intrigue, and an elightening, entertaining foray into Medieval Scottish history in which the times and the people come alive."
-Romance Reviews Today

For Border Wedding:

"Amanda Scott's gift is in her ability to create people you want to know. No matter what the conflict or the storyline, you're always drawn to the people. Border Wedding is no exception. Another winner!"
