Publisher Description

Fans of Heather McCollum and Keira Montclair will love this tale of warring clans, a braw Highlander, and a secret none of them saw coming.

It’s been five years since Shane MacPherson stepped foot on his clan’s lands. Still haunted from years at war and the painful ache of loss, duty has called once again…and with it, his obligation to claim his place as the new laird of Clan MacPherson. But when Shane encounters a lass—a Valkyrie in both temperament and foul tongue!—in trouble, he puts title and duty aside to defend her…

Lindsay Wallace would rather die than call the MacPherson lands her home—let alone their horrid clan. She just has to survive a month with her vile uncle before being married off as a peace offering between the Wallaces and MacPhersons. The only person she can trust is a simple soldier who is strong of body and heart. She has no interest in marrying her betrothed…so why not give in to the temptation of a soldier’s kiss?

But promises made can’t be broken or forgotten. And as shadows and war rise once again in the Highlands, Shane and Lindsay must find the courage to face their deepest secrets and their duty…before both love and clan are ripped apart.

Good Story!

Shane is on his way home from war when he rescues a young woman being accosted by thugs. To Lindsay, he was a soldier grief-stricken, weary from war, and looking for a little peace and quiet. To Shane, she was a young woman in a disagreeable situation. Both are keeping secrets and hiding who they truly are. Shane is the new laird of the MacPherson clan. Lindsay is the daughter of the Laird of the Wallace clan. Before long, they are quite taken with each other and marry. What they didn’t know at the time was that they were betrothed. Shane is the Laird Lindsay to whom is betrothed. Things are a bit prickly when they discover the truth, but Shane and Lindsay are perfect for each other, if they can get past the secrets, fibs, and misunderstandings. This is a well-done, entertaining story with some interesting characters. I look forward to more stories in the series.

Well things were definitely going to change once he accepts his title and position. His father was only concerned for Deidre but could have at least sent Shane a brief message to France to him to at inform his heir some type of consideration or warning about his future and a faceless wife he will never love!

Shane now hears a woman screaming and goes to protect her and is shocked that two MacPhersons guards were about to attack this beautiful, defenseless, lass!

As he is now living in his step-brother Ronan's humble cabin on the secluded edge of town while he was visiting with his grandfather. They were best friends and had each backs in the war in France. Luckily Ronan did not take after his heartless, vain, selfish mother who only spends the clan's coin that is needed for planting, food, bandages, livestock and necessities needed to survive!

He tells Lindsay he was a soldier that just returned from France. He is also dressed in humble clothing so neither of them shared their true background or titles. Lindsay didn't look like a Laird's daughter with paper thin worn clothing and wild hair but they became friends quickly and start having feelings for each other although Shane tries to deny it! However she is the first person who has started to make him open his heart again and make him smile, something he hadn't done in a very long time. Shane starts to feel things including guilt for this valkyrie woman even though he is promised to another.
