Since childhood, Magnus has been led to believe he is the Laird Alwyn’s bastard, and raised to hate the Clan Kincaid. But when he learns he is without a doubt the son of the murdered Laird Kincaid, his life as he has always known it is shattered. Now, hiding his knowledge and his fury, he returns to Burnbryde Castle, awaiting the chance to strike against the man whose treachery robbed him of his legacy. His first act of rebellion: to steal a kiss from the redheaded beauty who’s betrothed to the Alwyn’s eldest son and heir.
Since her arrival at Burnbryde, Tara Iverach has been confined to a tower to guard her virtue before she marries. But after a surprise embrace with a lean, bare-chested Highlander who claims to be the Alwyn’s oldest son, she can’t contain her excitement over her good fate. Unfortunately, he is thewrong eldest son, and she is set to marry his cruel and lecherous half brother, Hugh. Can Magnus conquer his rivals and claim his Kincaid destiny before the woman who’s captured his heart becomes his sworn enemy’s bride?
When it comes to Scottish romance I am all on board on reading one, I try to stick with the authors that I know. But reading the synopsis for The Rebel of Clan Kincaid penned by Lily Blackwood, I decided to give it ago. I am so happy that I did. The Rebel of Clan Kincaid was a fantastic story of treachery and revenge.
Magnus has always known that no matter what he accomplished he would always be his father bastard son. But the surprise was on him, when he learns that he wasn’t a bastard at all and that the clan he was raised to hate he was a part of. He set out to avenge the wrong. Along the way, it comes upon Magnus to save a young woman virtue and life before both is taken by Laird’s Alwyn son.
The Rebel of Clan Kincaid was an exciting read from start to finish. All the characters that you meet in this adventure story was well developed. Lily Blackwood truly knows how to spin a tell of intrigue.
It should be noted that even though this is book #2 of the Highland Warriors series, this book could be read as a stand-along.
