Overview

MALCOLM MACDOWYLT sees himself a failed warrior, haunted by the death of the woman he married to become laird of Clan MacGahan. Neither his Viking heritage nor his claim to descend from Norse gods can restore his confidence in his ability to protect his people. His sister is held captive, her life in jeopardy, and his Magically powerful half brother wants him dead. The last thing he needs is more responsibility, but that’s exactly what he gets when his Faerie mother-in-law arrives seeking justice for her daughter in the form of an enticing woman from seven hundred years in the future.

DANIELLE DEARMON has waited fifteen years to discover the life she is supposed to live. She just never dreamed she’d end up in the thirteenth century with a handsome Scot bent on saving everyone but himself. With the lives of those most dear to him hanging in the balance, Malcolm sets out to battle a powerful evil magic, only to learn that the redemption he seeks exists in the arms of the woman he loves.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mayhue (Highlander’s Curse) extends her Daughters of the Glen milieu to the far north of Scotland in her latest bodice-busting time-travel Highland fling. Young orphan Danielle Faye Dearmon, obsessed by fairies since childhood, invests in crystals and faerie folklore and is suddenly whisked 700 years back to Castle MacGahan. Its laird, Malcolm MacDowylt, is a part-Viking Highland hunk tormented by his malignant half-brother, a drought with winter on its heels, a sharp-tongued Faerie mother-in-law whose daughter married Malcolm and then vanished, and now Dani. Her colorful 21st-century idiom and certainty that he’s the man of her dreams clash with Malcolm’s responsibilities to his clan and his guilt over his wife’s disappearance. The tale is awash with verbal foreplay building to predictably exquisite climaxes, and populated with enough of Malcolm’s Viking relatives to foreshadow an entire new series. Agent: The Knight Agency. (Jan.)

Warriors Redemption by Melissa Mayhue is an enticing and entertaining read. She quickly reminded me of why I love time traveling & Highlander romances. I enjoyed reading this story in particular because of the inner conflict going on with Malcolm. I like complicated characters with complicated lives and he is one of them. I also thought that the addition of Norse and fairies within the story was interesting and fun. This is the first book that I've read by Mayhue and I'm excited that this is actually a spinoff of her other series Daughters of Glen. My only complaint would be, I wish the heat (sex scenes) would've been turned up a little more. I highly recommend this to readers who've enjoyed other series like the highlander series by Karen Marie Moning.

I loved the book. I love how each book brings something more and adds to the story far more than you ever know. Melissa adds more to this book for the series and makes it a joy to read.

So i desperately loved the Daughters of Glen series by Melissa Mayhue, and I couldn’t wait to start up the second series of hers that takes place in the same world. Although its the same world and these characters were briefly mentioned in the Daughters of Glen series the magic of these stories are very different. The men of this series are descended from Vikings and believe in Norse mythology. There is little mention of the character from the Daughters of Glen series, but that more than ok, and there is definitely still talk and appearances from the Fae in the series. After so many books it was time to move past them. Now, after reading this novel I found the same kind of upstanding men, but something about the story line just didn’t hit me like the Daughters of Glen series. I liked the Norse mythology and the men, but I think it was something to do with the romance between the two main characters. I plan on continuing the series hoping that this was just a one off.  Good: Malcolm- A pretty great guy Bad:  Danielle—Something about her bugged me a little.  Overall the romance in this novel wasn’t something that had me swooning.  Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): As always the novel was easy to read and follow. I liked the characters enough and loved the chivalrous men. The story line and adventures was well plotted and an interesting part to the story. The change in mythology and compilation of the Fae and Norse mythology was interesting to read. Overall the book was a good read and I will be continuing on with the series.
