A dirty talking Warlord. What’s not to like? This story takes place in a harsh time when I certainly wouldn’t want to be a woman. Or a man, for that matter. Bronson is victorious in reclaiming his family’s holdings and it’s time to take a bride. And he wants farm girl Genevieve. Genevieve has admired Bronson from afar because she was secure in the knowledge he would never want a girl like her; poor and voluptuous. But he takes one look and it’s off to the altar and all the fun that goes with it.
Genevieve was a good daughter and a better person. A little naïve but well aware of the hardships that make up life. She was hesitant to be Bronson’s bride but craved it as well, and being a sensible woman went into it with her eyes open. And he just kept on opening them for her as he showed her what she meant to him and what she did to him both emotionally and physically. Very erotic.
Hot, steamy and a little dirty this was a very enjoyable read. I figured out the bad guy early on and wasn’t surprised at the way that background story went, but Bronson was a revelation. I wish they still made guys like him in modern times but the alpha is slowly dying in today’s world. Too bad. Fortunately the author writes characters that I crave and romances that are risky and raw. A winning combination.
Bronson Lyon, Scottish leader and warlord of Clan Lyon, has seen enough death to last a lifetime. He has battle scars that would have killed a lesser man. After fighting for years to reclaim his territory, he is ready to settle down and create a family. But Bronson does not court or woo women. He takes what he wants, when he wants it, and makes no apologies for the carnage left behind in his wake.
When a buxom and untouched redhead is brought to him as a potential bride, he instantly wants to claim her. Genevieve's body was meant to bear him strong, fearsome sons, and he will show her what it means to be owned by a warlord.
But there is still an enemy that wants to hurt what Bronson holds most dear, and that is Genevieve, and the future Lyon clan leader she carries.
