[COMPLETE] She was a thief. She was a liar. She was his prisoner. And he'd just broken every rule in the book and kissed her.'

Laird Anndrais McWilliam knows his father was murdered. He might not have been struck with a sword or pushed down stairs, but the woman who stole money from their clan killed him as surely as she'd stabbed a knife through his heart. And McWilliam has vowed he'll to do anything to bring her to justice, even if it means breaking the law...and his own heart.

When Miss Rosa Blair receives a letter threatening her cousin's life if she doesn't confess to a crime she didn't commit, she doesn't hesitate to turn herself over to the authorities. That is, until one bull-headed Scotsman the size of a bear kidnaps her in the name of justice. McWilliam is insufferable, refusing to listen to her pleas of innocence. Nothing she says will convince him that her cousin is in mortal danger. 

Rosa knows McWilliam is standing between her and freedom. McWilliam knows Rosa is a thief and a liar. At every turn they clash, so why do they keep finding themselves locked in each other's arms?

I love this. And it is a good thing I am a huge fan of historical romance. I have found my entertainment for the next while

This really is a brilliant first chapter. When it starts, we assume the scotsman is the rogue, but by the end we learn that it's actually the woman!

I like the moniker 'Thistle'. Very unique and probably befitting her character

I love this opening! It's git a sense of humour, and makes me so curious. It's a brilliant introduction to a character.

I would remove the 'still'. seems a little redundant. But I love the little banter.
