My Lady Captor - Hannah Howell

Lady Sorcha Hay is devastated to learn that English soldiers are holding her young brother captive. Penniless, the only way she can pay for his freedom is by taking a hostage for ransom herself. Her captive--a wounded knight plucked from the battlefield--is furious to be imprisoned by a woman. But nothing will stop Sorcha from keeping Sir Ruari Kerr enslaved, even as the sight of his bronzed body sets her mind reeling and her senses afire.

This book had an interesting twist to it that gave it a very strong female lead in Sorcha, which is a hit and miss in historicals (especially considering this was originally released in 1996). I liked her time with Ruari as well as all of their interactions. However, all the kidnapping became tedious and I didn’t really care for some of the side characters, particularly her brother. You would think that, considering all she did for him, he wouldn’t deny what she wanted.
