AN ELITE FIGHTING FORCE UNLIKE THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN . . .
Scouring the darkest corners of the Highlands and Western Isles, Robert the Bruce handpicks ten warriors to help him in his quest to free Scotland from English rule. They are the best of the best, chosen for their superior skills in each discipline of warfare. And to lead his secret Highland Guard, Bruce chooses the greatest warrior of all.
The ultimate Highland warlord and a swordsman without equal, Tor MacLeod has no intention of being drawn into Scotland’s war against the English. Dedicated to his clan, the fiercely independent chief answers to no one—especially not to his alluring new bride, bartered to him in a bid to secure his command of the deadliest fighting force the world has ever seen. The treacherous chit who made her way to Tor’s bed may have won his hand, but she will never claim his heart.
Although her husband’s reputation is as fierce as his manner, Christina Fraser believes that something softer hides beneath his brutal shell. But the only warmth she feels is in their bed, in glorious moments of white-hot desire that disappear with the dawn. When Christina’s reckless bid to win her husband’s love goes awry and thrusts them into danger on the eve of war, Tor will face his ultimate battle: to save his wife and to open his heart—before it’s too late.
McCarty (Highland Scoundrel) begins a new Highland romance trilogy, this one set in the early 14th century. While Robert the Bruce attempts to consolidate the clans against the king, clan chief Tormod MacLeod hopes to remain above suspicion as he begins a special ops force, but his allegiance looks questionable after he s tricked into marrying Christina Fraser, the daughter of a nobleman once imprisoned for supporting William Wallace. Tor faces internal conflict as his growing feelings for his wife battle his warrior code. McCarty devotes too much time to the special ops story line, and romance fans will find little to engage with as Tor remains cold in the face of Christina s efforts to breach his emotional walls, but readers who deplore wallpaper historicals will appreciate not only the romance but McCarty s efforts to go beyond the superficialities of historical Scotland.
Oh my goodness...
It would take too much time to review every one of the books in this series so I’ll just leave this right here... These books are wonderful! I love them so much. So much feeling and they’re sexy! Please give them a chance. I know this first one can be a lot to take in due to the storyline Monica is introducing for the rest of the books and the heroine can seem a little dim witted at times, but really she’s just a little naive. That’s the beautiful part though...her characters aren’t perfect. Trust me they’re great books.
Boring with a capital B. The reviews seemed decent for this book but I regret buying it. You can go through 20-30 pages with no dialogue or real substance. Most of story revolves around Tor training his men rather then with Christina so there wasn’t much in the way of romance. I bet I skimmed through half the book I would just get so bored in spots.
Out of this world
