This book was so good ! "Highland Conquest" is the second book in this rich historical romance series by Alyson McLayne. The author did a fabulous job of grabbing my attention and keeping me captivated until the end.
This series has a fascinating plot thread that follows the lives of five brothers of the heart. This book belongs to Lachlan MacKay and Amber MacPherson. I loved Lachlan and Amber and their passionate and tumultuous love affair. These two characters had to overcome many attacks from a devious but brilliant enemy. They had such a hard time of it from their common foe but there was also some personal trials to get past as well. Lachlan continued to deny his feelings for most of the story, and he made me so mad I wanted to leap into the scene to give him a good smack to shake some sense into him. I loved the humor between the brothers and the sly machinations from Amber's clan.
I loved everything about this book. Alyson McLayne's rich storytelling had me hanging on every word. I also can't wait to read the next book because I'm absolutely enthralled by this wonderful series.
HE WAS LOOKING FOR VENGEANCE
Laird Lachlan MacKay never planned on leading his clan, but when his older brother was murdered, he was left with no choice. His vow to avenge his brother has led him to the MacPherson clan—and their bewitching healer, Amber.
INSTEAD HE FOUND HER
Amber MacPherson is desperate. Dressed as a boy to escape her clan's treacherous leader, she runs right into Lachlan—who orders her detained. At first she causes him nothing but frustration, especially when she blackmails him into helping her clan. But when she's threatened by the same man who murdered his brother, Lachlan will do whatever it takes to keep her safe—and by his side.
