For too long Alaric had been tormented by an impossible choice. The woman he loved or his loyalty to his clan. The only problem was that he and Rionna seemed to be the only ones not happy. The king turned to Caelen. The alliance has been made, but I do not trust the former laird not to stir up dissension.
It will be your task to bring the McDonalds under control and to honor the alliance with the McCabes. Rionna stiffened at the insult, and her head jerked up as she shot daggers at the king. Think you I would betray my kin?

My brother? He and Rionna were sacrificing much for the good of their clans. Rionna eased back into her chair, her rigid shoulders sinking as she relaxed the tiniest bit. When she turned her liquid golden stare on Caelen, he saw gratitude for his defense. And grudging respect. Duncan Cameron will use any means to weaken our alliance.

You cannot be in two places at once. It is alluded to that he hasn't been with anyone since his last fiancee betrayed him 8 years ago. I loved the epilogue! He felt that his love made him vulnerable, which led to not only the deaths of his sister-in-law and father, but the demise of their clan as a whole. He still cannot deal with the guilt of what he blames himself for.
So when his brother Alaric turns down the king in marrying Rionna McDonald to strengthen their alliances, Caelan steps up to the plate. It couldn't have anything to do with the way that Rionna has always made his pulse race and blood shunt to his "cods"????? No way Rionna McDonald's father is a horrible man and a pedophile. Ever since he tried to rape her dear cousin Keeley years ago, Rionna has disguised her figure and looks and has turned into a bit of a tom boy.
She binds her breasts and learns how to fight, all in the effort to make men not attracted to her. But in her dreams, she does wish for a fierce warrior that will love and protect her and accept her for who she has become.
Not that she loved Ewan or Alaric McCabe, but after being betrothed to both, then turned away at the last minute, she feels like discarded trash when she is forced to marry the only other McCabe brother there is - Caelan. It is through this farce of a marriage that both Rionna and Caelan find a love like no other. I found Caelan and Rionna's banter to be fun a light hearted at times.
My heart HURT for Rionna and everything that she has been through in addition to being married to a man who is always sticking his foot in his mouth.

But I really feel as though Caelan truly made up for his resistance in the beginning and that didn't even last long. I was so happy when view spoiler [ towards the end, Rionna pretends that she has hated Caelan to save him that he knows in his heart that something is not right. I really thought at this part of the story, he would really make me mad and turn against her because of his betrayal in the past and what it lead to. He didn't though.
He knew better and that made me SO happy hide spoiler ] I also felt what Caelan did at the end was simply beautiful. I didn't expect it and it truly made me love him all the more! Even though I loved all of the stories, I truly appreciated that this story had an epilogue.
I really really liked that and that's why I had to give this a full 5 stars. This book was also very steamy as well!

He was a jerk more than I would like and took too long to show Rionna how much he loved her. But he did love her and did show her in small ways how caring he could be even when he was being a jerk. He would also say the wrong thing often but luckily we got his 4. He would also say the wrong thing often but luckily we got his POV and saw that he knew he was putting his foot in his mouth. Caeden was my least favorite brother going into the story but he worked his way up to number two cannot surpass Ewan. Rionna totally kicked ass! I want to be her in my next life!
I am not a fan of alpha heroines, which Rionna was not. But she was a tough, ass kicking sweet heroine.
I thought she tried too hard for Caeden, but I admired her for trying to make peace with him and her clan. Of course, her concessions were rarely the best way to go and eventually Caeden figured that out. I am not going to take up pages and pages fan-girling for Rionna, but I will say she is crazy brave and courageous, sweet, loyal, smart I loved her! This story moved fast, had lots of intrigue and action. The sex was hot. Caeden was a sweetheart about her virginity - Ewan take note.
The ending was superb and made me cry. The scene at the Loch Also got a sweet epilogue. Great way to end the series! View all 5 comments. I enjoyed this series despite the men sometimes angering me. Their treatment of the women weren't always great in the beginning.
Duel Review: Seduction of a Highland Lass and Never Love a Highlander by Maya Banks (Great Series)
No abuse or anything like that, just treated them as inferior. Caelen being the worst of them. Once the men started to fall for the women, they obviously changed that way about them. For me, the ending's of all three are what really turn my opinion of the books. When they finally fall, they fall hard. I listened to these on audible escape and the narrator did a really I enjoyed this series despite the men sometimes angering me. I listened to these on audible escape and the narrator did a really good job. I highly recommend getting the audiobooks. I throw them in here and there Now make it one with sexy Highlander and I turn to putty.
This one was no exception. I loved it. One of my favorite medieval heroin's I've ever read and in Rionna and Caelen was absolutely perfect!
