The stunning and dramatic final book in the Kincaid brothers' trilogy set in the wilds of Scotland.
LOVE TAKES NO PRISONERS
Derryth MacClaren is on the run—having been sent from her castle home to avoid capture by the vicious nobleman known as the Wolf, who has vowed revenge against the Clan Kincaid. When a surprise attack leaves her vulnerable, Derryth ends up in the hands of an enemy warrior who claims her, with the Wolf’s blessing, as his prize. But her captor’s gentle words and touch seduce her heart—and body—completely. . . and when she discovers the tattoo on his arm that proves him to be the legendary, long-believed dead son of the murdered Laird of Kincaid, Derryth knows she must find a way to alter his fate—and her own. . .
Cull has no memory of his family or past—all he knows is the life of a warrior, trained to fight on behalf of the Scottish king. But now that Derryth has informed him of who he really is—Cullen Braewick, the youngest son of the slain laird—he is torn. If Cull exacts revenge against the Wolf, who executed his father, he stands to lose the precious lass who he has come to love. What is he willing to sacrifice for Derryth to keep her safe. . .and in his arms?
The Warrior of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood is not one to miss!
Blackwood's marvelous third 14th-century Highland Warrior novel (after The Rebel of Clan Kincaid) draws readers into the sensual story as a noblewoman is captured and falls for her abductor. Derryth MacClaren is scared and upset when her brother-in-law, the Laird of Kincaid, sends her away, fearing soldiers are about to attack his castle. Though she's disguised as a peasant, Derryth and her companions are caught and taken prisoner. Derryth's captor is Cull the Nameless, a kingsman who has been ordered to bring down Kincaid. Though Cull refuses to release Derryth, he treats her kindly, and soon their mutual attraction builds. As the magnetism between Derryth and Cull culminates in memorable love scenes, they become determined to find a way to stay together. Blackwood expertly crafts a credible relationship between Derryth and Cull. Passionate emotions and suspense will keep readers invested in this vivid historical.
A slave boy with no memory, now a man with no name, Cull “The Nameless” and head of The Kings Guard. On a mission that will give him things he’s longed for most, a castle and lands but most of all a name.
Derryth MacClaren sister of Laird Kincaid’s wife, feels shame and uselessness for being sent home from the Kincaid castle on threat of a possible attack. Attached on the way by that threat, Derryth is saved by Cull and held captive. Traveling as peasants Cull has no idea who Derryth and group truly are.
This is the third book in the series but read as a stand-alone Book. I did not feel I missed anything from not reading the first two books. Cull is a strong and honorable man doing what he feels right by the King. When Derryth comes into his life he feels things he’s never felt and finds someone who gives him a new purpose. Derryth is stronger and fiercer then she believes. She sees past Cull’s purpose to the man himself and a love that both are willing to lay their lives on the line for. A touching romance with nail biting suspense and a heartbreaking past.
Excellent Highland Romance
I received an advanced reader’s copy of this book.
This story captured my attention and held it throughout. Cullen, the hero, is honorable despite his background. Derryth, the heroine, is spoiled and seemingly weak at the start, yet I feel she discovers her inner strength and courage though her captivity. Cullen’s love for Derryth leads him to rethink his life and what he wants out of it. There are significant obstacles to their being able to get together and have their HEA.
The book had a satisfying ending and it had great pacing throughout.
5 Stars!! Loved this book!! This is the first book I’ve read from this series & this is the 3rd book in the series! It’s actually the first book I’ve read by this author! I need to read the other books in the ‘Highland Warrior’ series!! Lily Blackwood is an amazing writer!! This book captured & held my attention! And the problems that came between the 2 main characters weren’t stupid problems that came from one not saying something to the other or silly crap that really shouldn’t be a problem! I enjoyed every page of this book! 100% Highly recommended!! This book was very enjoyable & it was pretty funny! One part I loved & laughed at was towards the end when Cull goes into the castle to find Derryth & meets her brother in-laws & Derryth says she has to tell them something & Cull blurts out something & she looks over at him & says that that wasn’t what she was going to tell them! Haha!!! I’m definitely going to be reading more Lily Blackwood books!!
