*Starred Review* Tensions are seething between Scotland and England in 1715. Scottish lord Everard Hume knows members of his wayward family are under intense scrutiny, so harboring an enemy stranger under his very roof is unthinkable, even if she is a bonnie lass. When her father's exile endangers her, Lady Blythe Hedley, who is English, finds refuge at the home of her late godparents and their surly son, Everard. As the pair's steely opposition to one another is slowly undone, resentment melts into desire, leaving them in the crosshairs of a vindictive Crown determined to win the battle of ardor versus allegiance. Frantz stakes her claim once again as a preeminent literary force for Scottish historical romance. The Rose and the Thistle is set at the explosive intersection of religion and politics in eighteenth-century Europe and brilliantly depicts the early Georgian era's intricate social and cultural landscape. Frantz remains poetic in her craft and rewards readers with a colorful brogue, picturesque settings, and passionate characters who bravely confront issues of religious persecution, loyalty to one's beliefs, and seemingly irreconcilable differences. A masterful achievement of historical complexity and scintillating romance sure to thrill readers with its saga of love under siege. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
