Antonia Barclay and Her Scottish Claymore

A Rebellious Romantic Comedy

Jane Carter Barrett

A wild and wily ride.

Antonía Barclay and Her Scottish Claymore is an unconventional historical romance that hums with energy, wordplay, swordplay, and a touch of melodrama. In 1586, Antonía Barclay embarks on a quest to find her real mother, Mary Queen of Scots, as well as the long-lost Scottish Royal Sceptre. Along the way, Sir Basil Throckmorton, a well-known villain and alchemist, kidnaps the beautiful Antonía and schemes to use her to pave his way to the English throne. If Breck Claymore, Antonía’s partner in love, does not find her soon, she will be forced to wed Sir Basil, and both Scotland and England will fall under his control. Readers of historical romance will enjoy the feisty heroine, her outrageous adventures, and the humorous take on a well-loved genre.

Jane Carter Barrett is a graduate of Duke University and lives in Austin, Texas. Mary, Queen of Scots and Jane Austen have been lifelong subjects of fascination for her. Antonia Barclay and Her Scottish Claymore is her debut novel. Better now than never.
