Description:

His first love

Now his sworn enemy…

What is Fiona MacDonald doing on the run across his lands? With a wee baby as well! Brandon once loved this woman with all his heart―until her family killed many of his clan. Now, as the new Campbell Laird, he must make sure she pays the price for her betrayal. But how can he claim his vengeance if what she says is true…? That her child is his son and heir!

My Thoughts:

I have been absolutely loving the human side to the tales of books from Mills and Boon recently, and so when I read the description of Jeanine Englert’s latest book I just knew it was going to hit the mark perfectly.

In both Fiona MacDonald and Brandon Campbell readers are given two characters that come alive from the pages. The way they have been crafted, Jeanine Englert draws the reader in, slowly giving glimpses that all is not as it might first appear. There are hints of heartbreak, betrayal and longing surrounding MacDonald and Campbell, and as readers get to know more about their personalities, their stories and shared histories, it soon becomes apparent that this is more than a simple romance tale.
When I first encountered Fiona MacDonald it was hard not to feel a need to understand her more, try to work out what happened between her and Brandon Campbell, and most importantly lead to the hatred she faces from the Campbell clan.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the exploration of Brandon’s mindset, his turmoil and struggle with being Laird and holding the remains of his family and clan together. Watching him work through his feelings, face the things that haunt his thoughts … it all adds up to a powerful story of seeking forgiveness, trust and love.

As if readers weren’t already spoiled enough with such wonderful characters, there is also the fantastically detailed writing that vividly paints a picture of each scene as it happens in the book. I felt like I could actually see the locations mentioned, even the small details were written in such a way to craft a full, colourful picture.

I’d highly recommend this, and if you’re a fan of the Outlander series, then I think you’d probably enjoy this!
