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?

Vikki’s Musings

This is the first book I have read by Lily Blackwood, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My thanks go to the publisher for inviting me to read and review prior to publication. My opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.

The story is fast paced with a good bit of action and suspense. It pulled me in from the beginning and kept me engaged to the ending. The writing flows beautifully with just the right amount of description to give me a true sense of the time period.

The heroine is engaging and has all the characteristics that a medieval lady should have. While a woman of her times, she is loyal to her family and those in her care. She is willing to put their needs before her own. I truly wanted her to find her happy ending.

I loved the hero immediately. He is honorable, and while he desperately wants to achieve the lands promised to him, he will not hurt others to accomplish it. He clearly cares deeply for the heroine and is willing to give up his dreams for her.

The romance between the hero and heroine starts as a slow burn and becomes combustible. The sexual tension between the pair is excellent. They are well suited for each other, and I am thrilled they found their happily ever after.

If you enjoy a great medieval romance with wonderful characters and an exciting plot then you will love The Warrior of a clan Kincaid. I look forward to reading other books by this talented author. Happy reading!
