Reviews for MOONLIGHT RAIDER:

 

RT — 4 ½ stars, HOT! Scott has another winner with this excellent, fast-moving plot, well-crafted and carefully motivated characters and the historical personages and events woven into an uplifting romance.

 

Publishers Weekly: Scott’s first Border Nights historical, her 60th novel, is a whirlwind of love and action in 15th-century Scotland. … After Molly Cockburn runs away from her abusive husband … evolving feelings drive the story. The secondary plot of hunting down a notorious raider pushes the story to its frantic, page-turning finale.
