About the book: “Lochlan MacAllister was born to lead. Ruthlessly groomed to take control of his clan, he has given his life to his people. But when he learns that the brother he thought was dead might still be alive, he embarks on a quest to find the truth. Catrina wants a life of freedom. But now Catrina’s royal father wants to use her as a pawn to ensure a treaty between conflicting lands,. So much so that he’s willing to kidnap his daughter to force the issue. But when she escapes, fate throws her into the path of a man she loathes.
Lochlan is stunned to find the shrewish Cat being hauled away by unknown men. Unwilling to see even her suffer, he frees her only to learn that she has her own demons to fight. When their fates intertwine, two people who know nothing of trust must rely on each other, and two enemies who have vowed their eternal hatred must find common ground, or see their very lives shattered.”
I don’t usually read historical romance but I won this from The Book Trib. (They have a daily and a weekly giveaway. Check them out if you haven’t yet.)
Lochlan and Catrina are two very strong personalities. Lochlan is a Scottish laird who does his best to take care of his clan and prove to people that he’s not the drunken, cruel womanizer his father was. Catrina is a strong-willed princess who wants the freedom to choose her own way of life. When Lochlan rescues her from her won father’s kidnappers, sparks fly. This was a fun read and the conclusion was heart-stopping.
I'm an Iowa gal and live on an acreage with my hubby and several cats. My husband is bi-polar which makes life interesting and frustrating at times. We have 1 son who also lives in Iowa. I've always liked to read and I'll always give my honest opinion about books and everything else (which sometimes people don't appreciate). I also love to enter sweeps, do different crafts, garden, and spend time with friends and family. You can reach me by emailing winterset AT peoplepc.com

Whether I win a new book or purchase a used book at a flea market or garage sale and review it, does NOT affect my reviews. I always try to be nice, but if I don't think something is great, I’ll say. When I'm finished with a book (or product), I either keep it for myself, or give it away to someone who I know will enjoy it. I DO NOT SELL the books or products that I have received for free.
