Thank you for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke today. A big thank you to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
The key to his past…
…lies with the enemy sharing his bed!
Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Rory Lochmore had expected to wage battle, to claim land and finally secure his standing within his clan… Instead he won a wife. A McCrieff wife. Their convenient marriage could unite the two long-feuding clans forever. But can a political alliance give way to a passion strong enough to stand the secrets of the past?
I can’t believe that we have reached the fourth and final book in The Lochmore Legacy series I have loved every moment that I have spent with these characters. With it being the last book I was eager to read it but at the same time I didn’t want it to end!
In this book I found a marriage of convenience and an enemies to lovers trope and let’s just say it works so well. Nicole Locke wrote these two characters in such an engaging way showing me their hopes and fears along with how life between these two clans is extremely complicated. All of the secrets are brought to the surface along with revealing the mystery that has run through all four books. There is danger, intrigue and of course a wonderful and complex relationship at the heart of this book. You will see Ailsa and Rory thrown together in difficult circumstances which brings out both of their feisty personalities. The romance is slowly built up but this pair have such a brilliant connection and even though there is mistrust all around something begins to grow. They are both strong characters with ideas to bring an end to the warring clans but as the story progresses you see the layers to Rory’s personality revealed and there is much more than first appearances show.
There is plenty of emotion woven into the story as Ailsa and especially Rory fight against their feelings. However their sizzling connection just grows and grows but how will it all end? There are a few threads to this story and I enjoyed the attention to detail as you see trouble in store for Ailsa and Rory. The historical side to this book really brought that time in history to life from the setting to the characters and I enjoyed every moment of my journey into the past.
The epilogue was well what can I say just perfect, Janice Preston brought everything full circle and gave us such a wonderful conclusion to this series. I’ll admit that there were tears! This has been such a fun and interesting way for a series to be written and I would love to read more stories told this way!
Secrets of a Highland Warrior is romantic, engaging and has a wonderful depth that kept me invested in both the characters and story!
