Lochlan MacAllister has been raised to
lead since he was born, and it was not done with a loving
hand. Most know his father as a ruthless womanizing
bastard, and that is just what they will say to Lochlan’s
face. He envies his brothers finding the loves of their
life but knows that this will not happen to him. He loved
once, or so he thought, until his fiancée betrayed him. Now
he has settled into leading his clan. When news of his
brother, who was long thought dead, surfaces and he knows
that if he is still alive he has to find him.
Lochlan and Catarina (Cat) have met
before. She is the cousin to one of his brothers’ wives and
when he runs into her during his search she is still as
prickly as ever. But, she is being pursued by men intent on
mistreating her, even if they are working for the King of
France, and he will not stand for it. Now he has entered
into a bargain with “the shrew”. But the more he learns of
her the more he starts to change his opinion of her, but
will he risk everything for her.
Cat is stunned, how could she be
attracted to the large oaf? But, the more time she is in
his presence the better she understands what has happened to
shape him into to the Laird he is today. She is willing to
risk everything for love and the right man but is Lochlan
the right one?
Finally we get to see Lochlan’s story,
in The Warrior. I have to say, I have missed
Ms. MacGregor’s (Kenyon’s) historical fiction characters and
hope we will hear more from her and the Brotherhood of the
Sword characters. I found The Warrior to be
well written and full of believable human interactions. I
found that I had a hard time putting The Warrior
down and think you will also.
