His first love
Now his sworn enemy…
What is Fiona MacDonald doing on the run across his lands? With a wee baby as well! Brandon once loved this woman with all his heart―until her family killed many of his clan. Now, as the new Campbell Laird, he must make sure she pays the price for her betrayal. But how can he claim his vengeance if what she says is true…? That her child is his son and heir!
Love, love, loved it!
Fiona and her son William have fled her fathers clan and are on their way to seek refuge with a cousin in a different clan but they must pass through Campbell land and they are captured by the Laird and William’s father Brandon who blames Fiona for her clan attacking his a year ago
I loved Fiona, she is a strong and clever woman who knows what she wants and her overwhelming desire is to protect her son. She is able to fight and the first few chapters had me bursting into laughter when Brandon had a few “oh no”’s before Fiona did something a bit crazy. She must use her wits, skills and intelligence to keep herself safe in Brandon’s castle, most people want her dead because of her perceived betrayal and her personal battles along with her plans and determination had me liking her even more. She is the kind of person I would want to be
Brandon shouldn’t still care for Fiona but as soon as he learns they have a son his main aim is to keep them both safe and acknowledge his son his heir. He didn’t want to be Laird but he was thrust into the position and he does the best he can. It does lead to a lot of personal battles for him where he has to ask what is most important to him and how best to proceed. He is strong and determined, he works with those he trusts and listens to them whilst also making up his own mind. He protects those who are important to him and he goes through a lot to be able to protect William and Fiona, especially when everyone else wants her dead or gone. He is a character who I totally loved and his struggles made him feel more human
This book is filled with so much drama and danger that it had me constantly on my toes and trying to keep up but that is a big part of what I loved so much about it. The characters and the situations they were in had me enthralled and they felt so real, I could almost see and feel the arguments, the fights and the characters play out in front of me. I could so easily imagine the locations that it was almost a bit of a surprise to find out that at least some of them were fictional, which I think shows just how much I was dragged in and captured by their story!
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance that has some brilliant characters, an amazing setting and so much danger and drama that you will be on the edge of your seat and unable to stop reading
