The Legend of the King’s Guard begins with CONQUERED HEART
In protecting the King of Scotland, Graeme Cameron will do whatever it takes to ensure Robert the Bruce’s safety. He and his comrades become the victim of circumstance and are now exiled. As they hide, they realize others are worse off and they hire themselves out as mercenaries.
Kerrigan Campbell is desperate to find her laird and protector’s son. Then she hears of the legendary king’s guard and seeks to plead their aid. She runs across their leader in the midst of a battle, but he’s not what she expects. When she and Graeme find an abandoned bairn, he asks her to locate its mother and in return he’ll recapture her laird’s son.
Graeme has challenges before him–how to keep himself and his comrades from being executed for doing their duty, aiding the sweet lass in recovering her charge, finding the bairn’s mother, helping their king defeat England’s army, and gaining a pardon for their involvement in the king’s misdoings. There’s one challenge that thwarts him though and that’s Kerrigan. She might conquer his heart and more…
I enjoyed the sweet love story, the Scottish history and the adventures. This is book 1 of 4 in a series. The ending left me hanging, but I still liked it.
Just so so. Was a decent story but not very romantic.
