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?

Publisher’s Description of THE BEAST OF CLAN KINCAID, Book 1 in the Highland Warrior Series:

A Highland warrior battles to reclaim his birthright in the first of a new series filled with seduction, revenge, and soul-stirring passion…

They call him the Beast—a hardened mercenary whose heart seems as cold as his icy blue gaze. They do not know his true name: Niall Braewick, son of the Laird of Kincaid. It has been years since he escaped into the forest the night his father was murdered. Now he has returned, ablaze with a vengeful hunger. He will gain the MacClaren chief’s trust, gather his clan, and take back his lands. And take the MacClaren’s daughter as well…

  Though he pulled her from the river, saving her life, Elspeth has been warned to keep her distance from her father’s hired warrior. He is a barbarian—a shame, as he is far more compelling than the lechers and fools competing for her dowry. Little does she know that, like the castle itself, she is a prize Niall intends to claim…but will he extract blood for blood and possess what is his, or will his enemy’s beautiful, innocent daughter tempt him to forsake his dream of conquest?

My Thoughts:

This is a new author to me on the scene although previously published as Lily Dalton, the RITA Nominated author of Regency romances. I was pleasantly surprised by this debut novel in this new genre for her.

Our Hero Niall is a mercenary by trade but is the son of the former laird of clan Kincaid. His true identity is a secret to all but those who know him best.
Elspeth, our Heroine is the daughter of the man Niall holds responsible for his families deaths.
Can a beginning like this one lead to the Happily Ever After ending that we all look forward to in a romance novel?  I encourage you to read it for yourself.

This is the debut novel of this author under this pseudonym and in this genre and book #1 of the series. I can hardly wait for book #2 in this series.

I gave this book a 4.5 four-half-stars-for-brent-weeksstar rating for characterization and storyline.
I would give it 3 flame-torch-md  flame-torch-md flame-torch-mdof 5 flames for heat.
