I finished the book yesterday and my mind is still living in that world! This is my first book from Nicole Locke, and I must say that that I love what I’ve read! Even though this book is the 4th in the series, it can be read as a standalone; I haven’t read the previous ones and I could keep up with the story just fine.
The McCrieffs and the Lockmore have been enemies for nearly a century. Each clan has its own version for what happened all these years ago and the animosity is palpable every time the clans cross paths.
Rory is the Lockmore’s Chief’s son. He’s been trying all his life to make his father proud of him and prove him that he’s worthy of his family. That’s the reason he finds himself crossing the borders to enemy territory, to claim the land the King took from the McCrieffs and gave to the Lockmores. What he doesn’t anticipate is the turn of events from that time on.
Ailsa is the McCrieff clan healer and the Tanist’s daughter. Her father is in charge of the clan, since their Chief is ill and bedridden. Her feelings toward the Lockmores are not the best because they killed her friend. She’s fierce, outspoken and feels for anyone that needs her help. She’s my favorite kind of heroine!
Neither Rory nor Ailsa could predict her father’s plan. Rory came to claim a piece of land and instead got himself a wife and a whole lot of mess! They both fight their arrange marriage at first, but Ailsa wields to spare more bloodshed between their clans.
This book was a true roller coaster. The plot is full of twists and turns and will grip you from the first chapter till the last. Nicole Locke gives us a story laced with lies, deceit and hidden agendas. Nothing is what is seems and everyone has plans you won’t see coming until they are upon you. If you are looking for a historical romance with a splash of mystery, then this book is definitely for you!!
