REVIEW An Oath Taken by Diana Cosby

Wow this book was everything I hoped for and more. A woman dressed as a man, sabotage and double dealings, and a strong Scottish woman meeting her match in an English nobleman how could it go wrong...it doesn't it's great!

.... Oops sorry I got distracted by the hunk on the cover.

Lady Elizabeth Armstrong needs to rescue her father and her brother from the dungeon of Ravenmoore Castle. They were captured and by the English castellan a cruel man who fortunately was killed and replaced with another. Elizabeth sees her opportunity to get into the castle when the new castellan catches her trying to rob him and thinking Elizabeth is a young man Sir Nicholas Beringar offers her a position as his squire. Against the wishes of her guardian she accepts, she will do whatever it takes to save her brother and father.

Lady Elizabeth is hesitant to believe Nicholas is a good and fair man, but with his actions everyday it shows her he is a man of his word and nothing like the last castellan. He even goes as far as helping prove the man was lying to the King and smuggling goods out of the country for his own gain. Soon even when questioned by her brother she admits he is a good man and trusts him to keep his word. An instant attraction is followed slowly by more deeper feelings, which at times is a little awkward for Nicholas. 

The entire book is amusing and entertaining and toward the end I was at the edge of my seat. I would recommend this book for any lover of historical romance.
