‘Seduction of A Highland Warrior’ by Sue-Ellen Welfonder

SOAHW SEWSTORY: At the King’s request, chieftain Alasdair MacDonald has sworn to preserve the peace in the Glen of Many Legends. Though he’s handsome and fearless, his warrior’s heart belongs only to his beloved land-until the fair sister of his oldest enemy shatters his defenses, branding his skin with a single touch, and sealing his fate with one stolen kiss . . .

Lady Marjory Mackintosh will do anything to unite the warring clans, even seduce Alasdair MacDonald. She has loved the rugged Highlander since she first saw him and now, as temptation leads to surrender, Marjory dares to possess him, body and soul. But a dangerous new menace enters the Glen, and he will stop at nothing to strip Alasdair of his honor-and the only woman who can claim his heart.

REVIEW: With ‘Seduction of a Highland Warrior’ Sue-Ellen Welfonder’s ends her Highland Warriors Series. In it she weaves lore with magic to bring us a story of three clans who lived in the Glen of Many Legends.

My favorite part, I must say, was the legend of how they came to be all there, right at the story’s beginning. The author did a marvelous job telling it and basically hooking me to the rest of the read.

Ms. Welfonder had her hands full with her heroine Lady Marjory Mackintosh, an impetuous, sharp-tongued maiden determined to do anything within her power, seduction included, to catch Alasdair MacDonald, Laird of the clan MacDonald as her husband. She’s loved him a while now but it seems that he won’t be easy to catch.

Alasdair MacDonald is one of those Alpha heroes that are strong, handsome and always do that which will benefit their people. That’s how he ended up being gone from the Glen for over a year, and now that he’s back, he must find out what’s afoot in the Glen.

He also knows deep in his heart that an alliance of marriage with Marjory is unrealistic because her brother aims to marry her to a Norse Warrior and would never ever give her to Alasdair.

What really impressed me more than the story itself was the author’s vivid description of the Highlands and its people, myth and legend.

Without a doubt, if you enjoy Highland stories, Alpha men in kilts, strong and determined heroines, you’ll enjoy this book.

This is my first time reading Ms. Welfonder, and I’m not sure it was a good idea to start with the book that ends this series. She did a good job in bringing me up to date with the earlier goings on, but in the end I don’t think it was enough for someone like me that has a need to read that first book of the series in which the author takes her time to introduce us to her future players.

Regardless, by the end of the story, I warmed up to the hero, heroine and their friends just as if I read the series from the start.
