Secrets of a Highland Warrior
The key to his past…
…lies with the enemy sharing his bed!
Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Rory Lochmore had expected to wage battle, to claim land and finally secure his standing within his clan… Instead he won a wife. A McCrieff wife. Their convenient marriage could unite the two long-feuding clans forever. But can a political alliance give way to a passion strong enough to stand the secrets of the past?

The Lochmores and the McCrieffs have been feuding for years, so when Rory Lochmore goes to meet with the McCrieff’s Tanist, Fredrick McCrieff to discuss the surrender of the lands awarded to the Lochmores by King Edward, he doesn’t expect to be welcomed and he certainly doesn’t expect to be offered the Tanist’s daughter’s hand in marriage!!
Ailsa McCrieff is not only the daughter of the clan’s Tanist, but she is also their healer and currently her primary patient it Hamish McCrieff, the chief of the clan who is dying. She is shocked by her father’s offer to marry her to Rory, but for the sake of peace, she is willing, but when Paiden, one of Rory’s men is poisoned and it appears that treachery is at hand, Rory marries Ailsa, but refuses to make it a true marriage until Paiden is healed and he learns who is responsible. The investigation into finding the would-be assassin brings to light many secrets, secrets that Rory may have suspected, but never knew for sure until marrying Ailsa.
This was an interesting story, I found it a little wordy, somewhat hard to follow and honestly didn’t really “get it” – but I have not read the previous books in the series and I don’t know if that makes a big difference. I thought it was interesting and I liked Rory and Ailsa and was happy that they found true love amid all the hate and deception going on around them. I didn’t really understand the significance of the epilogue, but I attribute that to not having read the entire series.
