Tragedy is about to hit the MacKinnon family and change their lives forever.
Royden MacKinnon oldest of the three MacKinnon siblings has loved Oria, the daughter of a neighboring chieftain as long as he can remember. He wants no other woman, needs no other woman, has been with no other woman. Both will be virgins when they wed and he looks forward to them discovering all the loving things marriage can bring.
Arran is the middle child gifted with a charmed tongue and fine features that steal many a woman's heart. He's not ready for a wife or family, no need for him to be since it is Royden who will one day rule the clan. He entertains himself with willing women and defends any woman when need be… even Purity of the Clan Macara, a little mouse of a thing who can't standup for herself. But then her brother Bayne is a man most men won't challenge.
Raven is the youngest of the three MacKinnon siblings, raised by all men—her mother dying in childbirth—and is accustomed to doing as she pleases and speaking as she pleases. Traits her father realizes will be difficult when the time comes to find her a husband.
Life is good at the Clan MacKinnon, food plentiful, clan members faithful, the future bright until… the attack. They had heard rumors, thought to be prepared, but it came without warning. In the end Royden and Arran are taken away to serve the King, Parlan, their da, is believed dead, and Raven… no one knows what's happened to her.
It isn't until five years later that Royden and Arran return home far different men than they once were. Both intend to find their sister and find the person responsible for what happened to their family… and take their revenge.
I bought this book thinking it'd be a short story, but it's actually a prologue for an upcoming trilogy! Let me say that I am definitely hooked. I can't wait to read the first part of this amazing story in June (2020)! Lastly, I fell in love with the female leads, women who have invaluable strength in them that allow then to go through innumerable circumstances. Once again Donna does not disappointed!! I just can't wait!!!
This is going to be a very exciting series. The MacKinnon family will have to endure some major challenges. I am looking forward to reading and cheering on the MacKinnon family.
