Templars & Scottish caves

I'm more than 3/4 of the way through Claire Delacroix's The Beauty. Beauty is a well done version of the kidnapped well born daughter who comes to love her captor theme. Hero is a physically scarred, tortured ex-Templar with vengeance on his mind- ok, justice if you agree with him. This novel is set in 1183 Scotland. Thankfully it is written in standard American English as opposed to a fake Scottish brogue (one of my peeves). Nicely done. Unique twist on the justice/vengeance problem. Heartwarming. Makes me wish I could drag DH off to an isolated Scottish cave- almost. If the cave had a hot tub & clean Egyptian towels....

Heavy thunderstorms tonight. Am off to sit on front step & enjoy. Happy Reading!
