LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD
Since childhood, Magnus has been led to believe he is the Laird Alwyn’s bastard, and raised to hate the Clan Kincaid. But when he learns he is without a doubt the son of the murdered Laird Kincaid, his life as he has always known it is shattered. Now, hiding his knowledge and his fury, he returns to Burnbryde Castle, awaiting the chance to strike against the man whose treachery robbed him of his legacy. His first act of rebellion: to steal a kiss from the redheaded beauty who’s betrothed to the Alwyn’s eldest son and heir.
Since her arrival at Burnbryde, Tara Iverach has been confined to a tower to guard her virtue before she marries. But after a surprise embrace with a lean, bare-chested Highlander who claims to be the Alwyn’s oldest son, she can’t contain her excitement over her good fate. Unfortunately, he is the wrong eldest son, and she is set to marry his cruel and lecherous half brother, Hugh. Can Magnus conquer his rivals and claim his Kincaid destiny before the woman who’s captured his heart becomes his sworn enemy’s bride?
A phenomenal second book to the Clan Kincaid series by author Lilly Blackwood. The author continues the Clan Kincaid series with The Rebel of Clan Kincaid using a solid storyline filled with intrigue, danger, revenge, love and forgiveness. There is nothing in this book that feels repetitive from the first book with the exception of Clan Kincaid wanting revenge. In fact it is a fully developed story taking place in the enemy's clan this time where the reader will want to settle in to read this book in one seating.
Don't get me wrong the main characters from The Beast of Clan Kincaid are throughout this book but they don't dominate the story. This book is about Magnus aka Faelan Kincaid the second son and his life from when their parent's were murdered to the present. Magnus is truly a hero the women readers will fall for. Not only is he graced with looks but he is caring and a dominating warrior.
Tara, as the main female character, at first seemed meek and nun like but wow she surely comes to her own by the end of the book. Portrayed as a gentler women she has a stronger backbone than people are aware of. For me she didn't take center stage because Magnus filled the page with his personality but I really liked her character and felt she was the perfect women for Magnus.
One of the things I love about this author is how she wove the storyline so intricately creating a story that jumps off the pages and comes to life.
I give it 5 STARS and recommend it to everyone.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
