Kiernan has been in love with the chieftans daughter for his entire life, so when she needs someone to rescue her from an abusive husband, he gladly steps up to the challenge. What follows is a mess of war, conspiracies and the winning of trust.


I was kind of expecting the woman in this to die and become miraculously bought back by one of the fae, or some equally mysterious being. It didn’t quite work out like that, but I enjoyed the fact. After all, instead of being rescued by a mysterious man creature, she was rescued by the man whom she had loved for a long time and known her entire life. Which I always enjoy in a story, love doesn’t always bloom in the space of a moment, but over a lifetime of knowledge.

This is a fun, quick and sweet read that takes you to another world and another place. I really enjoyed the fact that although there was a past love between the two leads, the abuse that she had suffered at the hands of men made her hard of trust. Rather than just falling at the feet of a strange, new man, she is fiercely independent and that trust must be earnt. Something that I think speaks to many people across the world.
