As a young girl, Sìleas
(SHEE-las) depended on Ian MacDonald to be her knight in shining
armor. It was her dream to one day be his wife and raise a family
with him. However, on his last attempt to rescue her, Ian compromised
her virtue and was forced to marry her. Sìleas was an awkward,
unattractive girl. Ian didn’t want anything to do with the
marriage. He was forced to give up the woman he had planned to marry
for Sìleas and said mean things about her to his father while
she listened from the shadows. After the wedding, Ian left to fight
Five years later, Ian
returns to take care of his family and make amends for his leaving.
His wife has grown into a strong beautiful woman and he realizes
he’s ready to fight for her. But he finds he has competition
for his wife and a war is in the wind to save his clan as well.
This is the first book
in Mallory’s new Return of the Highlander series. It is a
great story that shows the constant struggles within the clans.
Mallory grabs you right from the beginning and doesn’t let
go till the end with you wanting more. I enjoy Mallory’s style
of writing and the way she tells the story. This is a must read
book. I can’t wait to read the rest in the series when they
come out. I highly recommend this book for lovers of historical
romance and highlanders.
