For my #2 challenge (Title With 'Love'), I read Love and Mayhem by Nicole Cody. What do you do when your betrothed can toss an iron pot at a man's head at twenty paces, her uncle believes he's the legendary William Wallace and her two maiden aunts cannot finish a sentence - or a thought- of their own?

All Iain Armstrong wants to do is what his clan and the English king wants him to do: marry Marion McCall and unite their two clans. When Iain arrives at the priory on the Isle of Skye to escort her home, Marion McCall is determined to dislike him on sight and refuses to see him. However, as she slowly gets to know him, Marion discovers that her new husband is quite a handsome and intelligent man.

As the guests begin to arrive to celebrate the wedding of the sixteenth century, they have to contend with border clashes, dirk-wielding outlaws and chatty old maids with a penchant for baking. I liked this cute story based on 'Arsenic and Old Lace'. I give it a B+!

B+! -(89-94%)

May you read well and often
