Book review: Nicole Locke, Secrets of a Highland Warrior

Secrets of a Highland Warrior

Secrets of a Highland Warrior Cover

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?



Well, I’ve managed to do it again, and get into a series by reading the last one first! This is the fourth in the Lochmore Legacy, but although there is an epilogue which ties the whole series together, this book can certainly be read as a standalone, and you could always skip reading the epilogue until you had read the rest of the series, so that everything slots together nicely.

But onto this book itself. Rory Lochmore heads into McCrieff territory, looking to claim land which has been decreed to them by the King himself, but the McCrieffs and Lochmores have years of bad blood between them, and he is fully anticipating bloodshed in one form or another. What he isn’t expecting is a proposal of marriage from the clan’s second-in-command, offering up his beautiful (and blunt-speaking) daughter, Ailsa.

There is a lot of inner thought in the book, as each battles their demons within, as to why this marriage is (or is not) a good idea, but ultimately, theirs is an enticing arrangement, and we’re with them every step of the way, as they try to work their way through what’s best for them, and for their clans. Of course, nothing is ever that simple, especially not with intra-clan battles alongside inter-clan feuding – can Rory and Ailsa find contentment in their situation?

Secrets is an addictive read, which you won’t be able to put down, with the delectable Rory playing no small part in this! I’d highly recommend it for those after their newest handsome highlander…
