Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks
Release Date: May 31, 2016
A Highland warrior battles to reclaim his birthright in the first of a new series filled with seduction, revenge, and soul-stirring passion…
They call him the Beast—a hardened mercenary whose heart seems as cold as his icy blue gaze. They do not know his true name: Niall Braewick, son of the Laird of Kincaid. It has been years since he escaped into the forest the night his father was murdered. Now he has returned, ablaze with a vengeful hunger. He will gain the MacClaren chief’s trust, gather his clan, and take back his lands. And take the MacClaren’s daughter as well…
Though he pulled her from the river, saving her life, Elspeth has been warned to keep her distance from her father’s hired warrior. He is a barbarian—a shame, as he is far more compelling than the lechers and fools competing for her dowry. Little does she know that, like the castle itself, she is a prize Niall intends to claim…but will he extract blood for blood and possess what is his, or will his enemy’s beautiful, innocent daughter tempt him to forsake his dream of conquest?
About the Author:
Lily is also the RITA Nominated author of Regency romances, Lily Dalton.
Who doesn't love a big, sexy, gruff Scottish warrior hellbent on revenge?! I know I do, I have a soft spot for Scottish men, especially the historical ones.
Niall had his family and clan ripped from him when he was young and years later he is back as a deadly mercenary. Ready to reclaim his home and the lands of his birth. He didn't expect his enemy's daughter or the temptation the wee lass would bring.
Niall's torn between his feelings for her and his hunger for revenge, and he's not the only one who's torn. Elspeth's seriously crushing on the big beast, but who could blame her - I was crushing on him also. I may have wanted to throat punch her hag of a stepmother also (winks).
This was a page turner for me and I loved every bit of this book, especially when Niall and Elspeth get their HEA, but I seriously need more of this series!
