From Publishers Weekly:

In this sixth and final volume of The Golden Chronicles series, Roland Fairleigh Mathieson, sometimes called Otton, the wily adventurer familiar to readers of the earlier books, undergoes a gratifying change, once his heart is captured by mischievous Miss Fiona Bradford. A political opportunist and reputed rake, Mathieson is searching for treasure reportedly stashed among disguised followers of the Jacobin cause. This is his reason for infiltrating the caravan of traveling players, where he meets would-be actress Fiona. As their affection flourishes, Mathieson becomes the protector of the little band. There is much for him to do, as he skillfully leads them around ambushes, narrowly escaping death himself. With customary panache, Veryan animates the background of Georgian England, creates a hero in the grand manner and spins a satisfying romance redolent of the period.

From Library Journal:

Veryan has heard our cries and now gives Roland Fairleigh Mathieson (sometimes call Otton) his own story. And an incredibly powerful, moving, and riveting one it is! The tale opens with Roly (as he is called here) lying injured in Flanders in 1743 (The War of the Austrian Succession), then jumps to England in November of 1746 after Culloden. Roly is after Bonnie Prince Charlie's treasure for himself. Certain Jacobites are also hunting for the treasure to return it to donors who are truly needy. Fiona Bradford's father is one of the Jacobite adventurers. She and Roly meet and fall in love. While the story has realism and brutality, the style and substance lift it far above the norm. Veryan has again proved that the genre can hold its own when compared to "mainstream" fiction. Excellent in all respects.

Summary - Fiona Bradford was more amused than offended by handsome Roland Fairleigh Mathieson's passionate ardour. He was acting, She suspected - a talant that seemed to come quite naturally as he managed to wangle his way into the caravan of traveling actors led by Fiona's father. Indeed everyone had a part to play. The troupe was actually a band of Jacobite sympathizers secertly transporting Bonnie Prince Charlie's treasure. And Roland, a self-professed rake, duellist, soldier of fortune, and dedicated villain - who had every intention of profiting from these turbulent times - planned to steal the loot for himself. That is, until he encountered the charming, unpredictable, and thoroughly confounding Fiona. Seller Inventory # 062105201
