This is the first book in Sue Ellen Welfonder’s new Highland Warriors series and what a start it is. The Glen of Many Legends has been the home to three very powerful and very proud Highland Clans for generations… the MacDonalds, Camerons, and Mackintoshes. The peace between the three clans has always been tedious and strained at the very best of times and at others downright deadly. But when the rightful heir of the Glen suddenly dies all three of the clans find themselves in quite a perilous situation. You see the heir to the glen was a lady who had been a MacDonald at birth - but she was also twice widowed during her life, once to a Cameron and once to a MacKintosh. So each of the three clans now is laying claim to the woman and claiming to be the rightful heirs of the Glen! After several of the clans make complaints to the King the King steps in with a deadly solution to the problem. He orders each of the clans to put up 30 of their bravest and boldest warriors for a fight to the death and the last man standing wins the Glen for his clan. (And of course the King and his court will be in attendance to watch the fight for their own entertainment as well.)
Catriona MacDonald is outraged by the decree of the King and that he would order the deaths of so many good men (including her beloved brother Alasdair) over the Glen! It has been their home for generations and it is theirs by right as it was given to their clan years before by the Great King Robert the Bruce for their heroism and valor at the Battle of Bannockburn. And she sets out to try to find some way to stop this tragedy if she can - but in doing so she runs right into the path of a man from her past that she has tried desperately to forget James Cameron!
James Cameron has never forgotten Catriona MacDonald either - from the days when they were young. She has long haunted his thoughts and dreams, but she is the sister of his enemy and rival clan. Theirs is not an attraction that was ever meant to be… or is it? When fate once again thrusts them together neither can deny the attraction that burns between them, but with so much against them the fire between them seems destined to be extinguished. Especially with the upcoming battle between the clans for if James is forced to kill Catriona’s brother he knows she would never be able to forgive him. Is this a battle that any of them will survive with their hearts intact or indeed with their very lives? And which mighty clan will be the ultimate victor and win the rights to the Glen of Many Legends once and for all?
This is a thrilling start to this brilliant new series! James and Catriona are both such passionate and vibrant characters you are going to fall in love with them from the very start! I have long been a fan of Sue Ellen Welfonder’s books! With her name on the cover you know you are in for a fabulous read! She has the unsurpassed talent of making you feel that you have stepped through the pages of her books and are transported to the misty hills of Scotland itself right alongside the characters - you can practically smell the heather! Sins of a Highland Devil has it all romance, danger, adventure, and an outstanding cast of characters that I can’t wait to see return in the next installment! If you love Highland romances you owe it to yourself to get this one today! :)
The first book in the Highland Warriors trilogy, in which three heroes make a pact to insure that a rival clan does not take over their Glen of Many Legends. At the same time, three women plot to marry these heroes to insure peace.
In SINS OF A HIGHLAND DEVIL, James Cameron is concerned when the King's decree states all three neighboring clans must have a battle to the death in order to lay official claim to the scared Glen of Many Legends. James attempts to make a pact with the heads of the other clans to fight this decree. But he ends up fighting his own fierce desire when coming head-to-head with Lady Catriona of the opposing MacDonald clan, who has her own plan for peace.
