Descended of the legendary sons of MacAlpin, Iain MacKinnon refuses to bow to the English. When his young son is captured by a minion of the English king, the fierce Scottish chieftain vows to stop at nothing to secure the lad’s return. Retaliating in kind, he captures the daughter of his enemy, planning to bargain with the devil.
FitzSimon’s daughter has lived her entire life in the shadow of the man she called father–yet never would she have imagined he would forsake his only daughter. Even as Page blames her captor for welching on a contract with her father, she suspects the truth. But the shadows hold secrets … now only the love of her reluctant champion can save the MacKinnon’s Bride.
Just finished this book last night. It was a good read, to me it felt more like short story stretched into a novel with lots of narration.
I liked the fact that this story reveals the kinder side of barbarians, as we know them to be brutal, cruel, warlike, and insensitive person. The protagonists were good-natured which is the sole reason that drives the story.
I liked how author introduced humour into serious and dull situations to lift them up. Overall a good story if you need distraction from daily life and need something to read in your spare time.
