5th sentence, 74th page: He’d been fighting Niall for two years.
He’s been fighting a tyrant for years, but when Niall takes a hostage, his life is going to change in ways that he just didn’t anticipate. And couldn’t ever imagine.
This short story kind of had it all – romance, conspiracy and a fair amount of action. I was only going to read a page or two (since it was a little bit of a longer short story), but then I found that I just couldn’t put it down. The sprinkling of action and conspiracies throughout the romance, all set against a great Scottish background made me walk into a wall (actually) since I found it so difficult to tear my gaze away.
I love that although this is a romance, the story was also one of revenge and reclaiming ones’ heritage. It was about finding your own power and taking care of others. Concepts that I always enjoy, but I don’t always find so strongly intertwined with a romance. I was actually quite disappointed that this was a short story for this reason… after all, there was so much room for a greater storyline that interweaved the powers of passion and revenge.
