Highland Conquest by Alyson McLayne is book Two in "The Sons of Gregor MacLeod" series. This is the story of Laird Lachlan MacKay and Amber MacPherson. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book. Lachlan is looking to avenge his brother's death and is getting close to doing that. Lachlan and his men are close to attracting Machar Murray but they happen to see a 'young boy' sneaking away from the Castle that they are watching. So they grab him but find out pretty soon that it is women and not a boy. Amber is trying to escape Machar Murray the man that killed their laird, her father and several other people of her clan. Machar has taken a liking to Amber. Machar wants her but Amber has been smart about keeping him at arms link but using the man's superstition of witches to her advantage. But when he ended up locking her up in a room she was helped to escape only to be caught by Lachlan. Amber and Lachlan has a lot in common and both have a mind set to never marry but the closer they become the more impossible it is to ignore their growing feelings. This was an exciting story and I will be looking for more books fro this author!
A tough Highlander and a fiery healer created the prefect combination of animosity and passion. From their first intense meeting I was all in. This was an awesome story with drama and heat and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Amber and Lachlan had an unconventional first meeting and I was excited about where it would all go. I loved Amber and her strength, doing everything for everyone. She was fierce. I really liked Lachlan too, he was so sweet yet commanding. I enjoyed their chemistry and the build to their relationship. They both have things they believe they want from life and it makes things fun, complicated, and heated all rolled into one. I enjoyed all their ups and downs. I liked the plot, the main characters, and the time period and challenges the characters faced. I liked the secondary characters as well adding a lot of fun to the mix. There were nice details and a good build. I thought there was a really good balance of heat, emotion, and humor, and thanks to a bad guy, quite a bit of drama. This was an awesome read! I love a strong heroine that can stand her ground. Amber and Lachlan had a fantastic story. From the animosity to the heat, this was incredibly entertaining! Complimentary copy received for honest review.
