Cameron Clan, 1377
Robbie Cameron was a boy who was fostered by Laird Connor MacLerie. He got a severe whipping which devastated and humiliated him. It was because he pushed the chieftain’s daughter in the river, now his foster father was teaching him a lesson to not be abusive to females. Sheena had been following and pestering Robbie and her brother, so she felt very guilty though she had a less severe punishment. Robbie feared he would be shamed and humiliated in front of his father and clan too, however Robbie’s family never heard of this juvenile disobedience, degrading behavior or mortifying punishment that Robbie had suffered. Sheena wanted to apologize, but Robbie avoided her like the plague, as he wouldn’t even speak or glance in her direction! Soon Sheena felt it was easier to simply hate Robbie than feel guilty for his punishment. This is when she decided to find a new hobbie about learning and caring for horses. It is how she discovered her love for her great war horse Wee Dubh. A horse she has raised since it’s birth and her most prized possession.
As years went by, Robbie and his family title and status was elevated as he was now the tanist of Clan Cameron. That is heir to the Celtic chief or second in command. A match had been arranged between Robbie and Sheena since their childhood, long before his title as clan leader tanist . Naturally the parents all thought it would be easier on them since they already knew each other. Sheena was to marry the Cameron tanist, so she came to stay with Cameron family to get reacquainted with Robbie and his clan before their wedding. A wedding that neither one of them wanted, but Robbie never disagreed with the match though he hated his bride-to-be!
When Sheena first arrives to Cameron lands Robbie is very cruel, until he starts to see Sheena MacLerie in a different light. He knew why he wanted out of this marriage agreement, but didn’t understand why Sheena didn’t want to marry him, the tanist of the clan! Now Robbie promises to find a way out of their marriage contract without humiliating Sheena. It had to do with Sheena’s lack of education and how she passes out or responds oddly in certain situations that she can’t seem to control. Soon Robbie and Sheena forgive their past childhood grievances and their hearts start to grow. Sheena has always felt her parents have never loved or cared about her and always been ashamed of her unusual behavior. Shall Robbie and Sheena have just another cold, empty, empty, marriage in name only? Will Sheena bring shame and devastation to Clan Cameron as well as Clan MacLerie? Can Sheena and Robbie find a successful compromise without revealing secrets that might possibly harm the clan? Can love save them both? Read and find out!
Terri Brisbin is always my go to author and never disappoints readers. This is another brilliant read and and I love it brought the crossover of both MacLerie and Cameron books. For Brisbin readers this will be an absolute amazing treat, plus revisiting book characters from previous books from both clans. I have long been a fan of this author for many years, so I absolutely devoured this book and can’t recommend it enough! You can read this as a stand alone book if you are new to this author and her bestselling books. I definitely recommend this entire series as well as the MacLerie Clan novels as they are all phenomenal reads that Scottish romance readers will absolutely love!
