Rating: 4 Teacups / 3 Handcuffs
A hero determined to have it all…
After losing his betrothed to a Lowlander, Laird Gabriel MacKinnon is charged with saving her cousin along with a brood of children from an impenetrable castle. Though, the lady he’s been tasked to protect has been accused of a heinous crime, Gabriel has no fear of her. In fact, he’s a little irritated at the prospect of delivering her to her kin. But this hardened, cold warrior just may find his heart melting, for the hellion brings out a passionate side he’d thought long buried.
A lady who will stop at nothing to see him fail…
Lady Brenna has had more than her share of hardships and when freedom looks to be on the brink of her horizon, she’s not about to let some moody Highlander take it all away. She’ll stop at nothing to keep her children safe—and to guard her heart—even though the warrior’s heated kiss threatens to change every vow she’s ever made and every belief about love she’s ever known.
- This novel has a unique storyline, that we don’t often see in the Highlander genre. The heroine is a widower with children, whom have all lived a tortured existence until Laird Gabriel rescues them.
- We enjoyed the fact that Lady Brenna had children, whom she adored and would do anything for. She is an excellent, loving and kind mother.
- Lady Brenna experiences a considerable amount of abuse in her life and came out a stronger person. She is an extremely resilient character having experienced what she did at such a young age. This doesn’t stop her from being able to find a happily-ever-after.
- Laird Gabriel is a wonderful alpha Highland male. Not only does he go out of his way to save Lady Brenna but he takes her children under his protection and offers to foster her oldest son. He steps in almost immediately and takes on the father role. Could there be anything hotter?
- This is an excellent novel that was an amazing captivating read, but we want to advise our reads that the naughtiness doesn’t happen until the final scene of the book.
