Overview

Seven McTiernay brothers, each a highlander born to protect Scotland and her people, warriors known for their quick wits and quicker broadswords. The third brother, Cole, stared death in the face when he was only a boy…

Now Cole McTeirnay is a man. And though he resists them in every way, he has responsibilities. The wild northern Highlands need a laird who can guide them to peace. Cole has the army strong enough to accomplish this task. What he doesn’t have is the desire—to be a leader among men...

And so he is sent off on a fool’s errand: a mission to retrieve something from the very Englishmen Cole has spent his life hating. When he finds that the ‘something’ is a wild hellion, he balks, determined to make the return to Scotland as hard on her as it was for him to set foot on English soil. But though English herself, Ellenor intrigues him with her fierce spirit, and Cole’s heart, deeply locked away for so long, may be vulnerable at last…

As a child in Scotland Cole McTiernay watched the English kill his best friend Rob and almost him too. He grows up into a strong man, but loathes everything English. In the northern Highlands, the ravaged nomadic people ask him to become their laird. However, he has doubts he can bring the passion and serenity a leader must provide to inspire people. In 1311 his brother Conor believes Cole would do a great job as he has shown he can lead his men into battle, but his sibling also realizes his younger brother needs to let go of his hate. Thus he sends him to Durchent Hall in England to retrieve a package from Baron Ainsley Cordell. He is outraged to learn the parcel is Ellenor Howell, whose brother-in- law plans to marry her off to the highest bidder. Still Cole escorts Ellenor back to the Highlands; on their trek north, she melts his frozen heart as they fall in love. Filled with rage, anger, and a need to conceal any warm emotions, Cole makes the tale as he slowly transforms from hulking to warm and caring due to Ellenor. The story line is fast-paced from the first insult tossed by Cole at Ainsley and then the "parcel"; however, the "parcel" bites back. Fans will enjoy the third of seven brothers keeling in matrimony finding seven brides (see To Wed a Highlander and The Highlander's Bride) as Michelle Sinclair provides an intelligent medieval Scottish romance.

This loss follows him thru his adulthood and effects his relationships with all people including his brothers. But fate has an odd way of working and in drops Laurel.

I never read the first book in the series. I did read the second book, enjoyed it. I like the way the author developed this story line. This book was not just about two people meet, fight their feelings, have the sensual meeting and live happily ever after. There is nothing wrong with that, it is just nice to have more to the story line. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

Good job I like how the aurthur has conflict but just enough to keep you reading but not so much that you are annoyed with the characters in the book. I fine myself feeling for the personal problems . The book draws you in to the store and you cant place the book down.
