About the book

Derryth MacClaren is on the run. Traveling under heavy guard, she has been sent from her castle home to avoid capture by the vicious nobleman known as the Wolf, who has vowed revenge against the Clan Kincaid, and any who support them. When a surprise attack leaves her vulnerable, Derryth ends up in the hands of an enemy warrior who claims her, with the Wolf’s blessing, as his prize. But her captor’s gentle words and touch seduce her heart—and body—completely…and when she discovers the tattoo on his arm that proves him to be the legendary, long-believed dead son of the murdered Laird of Kincaid, Derryth knows she must find a way to alter his fate—and her own.

Cull has no memory of his family or past—all he knows is the life of a warrior, trained to fight on behalf of the Scottish king. If he can help the king’s law officer of the North, the Wolf of Badenoch, defeat a rebellious faction of Highlanders, Cull will be met with untold riches beyond possessing beautiful, innocent Derryth. But now that she has informed him of who he really is—Cullen Braewick, the youngest son of the slain laird—he is torn. If Cull exacts revenge against the Wolf, who executed his father, he stands to lose the precious lass who he has come to love. What is he willing to sacrifice for Derryth to keep her safe…and in his arms?

My Thoughts

I didn’t realize this was book 3 in a series but it didn’t stop me from enjoying it immensely. Cull isn’t the typical highlander hero in that he’s not the laird or laird apparent but he still has the whole alpha male sexiness going on. Despite being a hardened warrior Cull has a good heart and the way he treats Derryth despite her being a pain made me like him all the more. Derryth was a bit whiny and childish at first but she did grow on me since she realized she needed to grow and become less self centered.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story itself and watching Derryth and Cull together. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down and I definitely want to go back and read the first two books. The Warrior of Clan Kincaid is a fantastic read for any highland romance fans!
