Joshua Sinclair was once the fiercest and most notorious warrior of the mighty Sinclair clan of Northern Scotland. But now there’s nothing and no one that can make him take up arms again. Except a beautiful woman, it seems.
When Kára Flett, daughter of a fallen Norse chief, finds herself unexpectedly sheltering the strongest, most brutal warrior in the land, she throws together a risky and outrageous plan to bring him to her side. Threats of violence bounce right off him. Offers of gold seem to entice him even less. Desperate enough to use the pleas of the village children to sway him, she’s shocked when he’s completely unmoved. There’s only one tactic left for her: seduction.
Her hasty proposition falls completely by the wayside, though, as she and the Highlander come together in a carnal inferno. But bringing him into her life also brings his enemies to her clan’s doorstep—the very clan Kára is trying to protect. And as their feelings deepen, Joshua will have to decide between duty and love once and for all.
Each book in the Sons of Sinclair series is STANDALONE:

* Highland Justice
* Highland Beast
* Highland Surrender
A Scottish mercenary meets his match in McCollum's fast-paced second Sons of Sinclair romance (after Highland Conquest). It's 1589 and Joshua Sinclair, "the Horseman of War," is battle-weary from his engagement training troops for Robert Stuart, Earl of Orkney. He's ready to leave Orkney Isle to return to his home on the mainland of Scotland—but before he can, he meets beautiful widow Kára Flett, who seduces him in hopes of convincing him to help her family, a Viking clan, fight back against the Stuarts' rule. Joshua is initially reluctant, but as he falls deeper under Kára's spell, he agrees to stay on Orkney just long enough to teach her family how to protect themselves. And when Robert abducts Kára's nine-year-old son, Geir, Joshua will stop at nothing to rescue the boy and protect Kára. There's plenty of romantic angst between Kára and Joshua as they navigate the dangerous world of 16th-century Scotland—while still finding time for sizzling encounters in the midst of all the intrigue. Juxtaposing the drama of warring clans with magnetic romance, this is a sure bet for fans of Highland romance.
Highly anticipated this book. Had it preordered long before it was out. It didn’t disappoint. Really enjoyed it. Can’t wait for Bas and Gideon’s story either. Love me a good Scottish romance!
I loved this book!
As this wonderful book stated "Love was risky. It could tear one apart, but it could also build one into a mountain of strength. It made life sweeter, brighter, and so worth living.” Excerpt From Highland Warrior author, Heather McCollum such a good book of life and love! Thank you Heather McCollum.
4.5 Stars! I loved this story! This is book 2 in the ‘Sons of Sinclair’ series. I didn’t get to read book 1, yet, but book 2 can be read as a standalone. Kara and Joshua, the main characters, were both fierce warriors that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. The first ‘sexy times’ they had was funny, if a bit soon but still entertaining & sexy! I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend this, especially if you love big, brawny Scottish historical romance with a HEA ending!
I love how the author tells a lot of true history in her books. Every book I’ve read by this author has been outstanding! You can also get an extended epilogue of the wedding and wedding night by signing up for her newsletter emails.
My ancestors came from the Orkney Islands and I may also be related to the tyrant of the story, the Earl of Orkney! Sorry, he sounds like he was a real sick phucker! Ha!
