LOVE TAKES NO PRISONERS
Derryth MacClaren is on the run. Traveling under heavy guard, she has been sent from her castle home to avoid capture by the vicious nobleman known as the Wolf, who has vowed revenge against the Clan Kincaid, and any who support them. When a surprise attack leaves her vulnerable, Derryth ends up in the hands of an enemy warrior who claims her, with the Wolf’s blessing, as his prize. But her captor’s gentle words and touch seduce her heart—and body—completely...and when she discovers the tattoo on his arm that proves him to be the legendary, long-believed dead son of the murdered Laird of Kincaid, Derryth knows she must find a way to alter his fate—and her own.
Cull has no memory of his family or past—all he knows is the life of a warrior, trained to fight on behalf of the Scottish king. If he can help the king’s law officer of the North, the Wolf of Badenoch, defeat a rebellious faction of Highlanders, Cull will be met with untold riches beyond possessing beautiful, innocent Derryth. But now that she has informed him of who he really is—Cullen Braewick, the youngest son of the slain laird—he is torn. If Cull exacts revenge against the Wolf, who executed his father, he stands to lose the precious lass who he has come to love. What is he willing to sacrifice for Derryth to keep her safe...and in his arms?

At last, we discover what happened to the third Kincaid brother who disappeared as a child while his family’s castle was attacked, and their parents killed. It was worth the wait!
Derryth MacClaren has been visiting her sister, Elspeth, and her husband Niall Braewick, Laird Kincaid at their castle. Woken in the night, dressed as a serf and told she was being sent home she fears for her pregnant sister and understands they may face a siege from Niall’s enemy Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan. She heads home with her brother-in-law’s men as her escort. They are caught by Buchan’s men and held as Cull the Nameless, one of the leaders, decides who they are. He plans to have them work for now and takes Derryth to his tent. She will also work, and he will try to keep her safe.
Cull is loyal to Buchan because he rescued him some years ago from a Venetian ship where he was a slave. He was then trained to be a soldier and eventually named a King’s Guard. He doesn’t understand the hatred for the Kincaids but follows the orders he was given. Eventually, he learns more of his history. I won’t ruin the rest of this wonderful, complex story. I highly recommend this book.
