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?
This is an excellent book, as long as you haven’t read the first in this series. I know that sounds harsh but it is so much like The Beast of Clan Kincaid the first book by Lily Blackwood. Oh yes, the names of our hero and heroine are different and the location is a few hours from the location of the first book. But the basic vengeful son plans to seek revenge on the man who killed his parents and in his down time woo away the petulant heir’s betrothed, is very much the same, down to the same petulant heir.
I meant it when I said this is an excellent book, the writing is top-notch, the characters well developed and the action scenes well drawn. So if you are new to Ms. Blackwood’s series then I’m certain you will like this book. However if you have read the first book than you may feel a bit of dejavu.
