STORY: Passion flares between enemies
Two hotheaded Highlanders, the offspring of feuding lairds, are tricked by the King’s Regent into a desperate choice: marry or die. Bhaic MacPherson is more disposed to lead his clan into battle than stay married to the daughter of his enemy. But perhaps the intensity of his feelings has more to do with desire than hostility.
And the Highlands ignite
Ailis Robertson wanted a husband, not a savage-but when her family was faced with a deadly ultimatum, she had no choice. The union of a MacPherson and a Robertson could end three generations of hostilities between the two families, but can bitter rivals truly become lovers?
REVIEW: Forced marriage trope is one of my favorite tropes and when well done, it can be actually a lot of fun. Just think, two people from feuding clans are forced to marry and both are very weary of not just each other but of everyone around them.
I’m sorry, but I had a lot of trouble connecting to the two main leads. I was hoping for at least a bit of chemistry, but … no. I felt that they were just … there. Their animosity took too long to be resolved and that bothered me.
The only thing I did like is the way the author took her time in writing about the clans and the life they lead. She obviously did her research and I enjoyed that aspect of the story very much.
I have to be honest and say, just skip it.
