Genre: Historical, Romance
LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD
Since childhood, Magnus has been led to believe he is the Laird Alwyn’s bastard, and raised to hate the Clan Kincaid. But when he learns he is without a doubt the son of the murdered Laird Kincaid, his life as he has always known it is shattered. Now, hiding his knowledge and his fury, he returns to Burnbryde Castle, awaiting the chance to strike against the man whose treachery robbed him of his legacy. His first act of rebellion: to steal a kiss from the redheaded beauty who’s betrothed to the Alwyn’s eldest son and heir.
Since her arrival at Burnbryde, Tara Iverach has been confined to a tower to guard her virtue before she marries. But after a surprise embrace with a lean, bare-chested Highlander who claims to be the Alwyn’s oldest son, she can’t contain her excitement over her good fate. Unfortunately, he is the wrong eldest son, and she is set to marry his cruel and lecherous half brother, Hugh. Can Magnus conquer his rivals and claim his Kincaid destiny before the woman who’s captured his heart becomes his sworn enemy’s bride?

Lily Blackwood has found her niche with this wonderful Scottish series! I loved the first book in this series, “The Beast of Clan Kincaid” and this one is just as good, if not better. I’m really looking forward to the third brother’s story in “Warrior of Clan Kincaid” coming next year. These books can be read on their own but I think you’ll get more background if you read them in order.
Tara Iverach has lived in a convent since the death of her parents. Her older sister, Arabel, had been sent to the Scottish court by their guardian the Earl of Buchan. He arrives at the convent to tell her that she is to be wed to the son of Chief Alwyn as her sister has died. She also discovers that he has taken their family’s lands for his own.
Magnus believes he’s the bastard son of Laird Alwyn who hates the Kincaids. His childhood friend, Elspeth, now married to Niall Kincaid helps him accept that he is Faelan Kincaid, thought murdered when his father was. He returns to the Alwyns, as Magnus, to discover what part they played in his parents’ deaths.
Tara has no desire to marry Hugh, but is very attracted to Magnus. And he to her. While discovering love, there are many plots and secrets to deal with. I will not spoil this wonderful story by revealing them. If you like Scottish romance, you will love this book. I couldn’t put it down!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
