But the biggest sticking pin to romance, is Duncan refuses to bath regular, well, regularly is once a year after the floating of the sheep! She refuses to be bedded by the man covered with tiny livestock and dirt, so she goes to war and pulls out the big guns: The Chastity Belt. On on it will stay, until Duncan learns what soap is mean she hold the KEY to their marriage!!

It is a WONDERFUL BOOK, Lynsay's second and marked her as a super writer here to stay.

Being a Scot myself, I found the book a sheer delight!!
