The Warrior Bride
Putnam, November, 2002.
Paperback, 384 pages.
Life in 1535 Scotland was brutal, with warring clans making surviving a difficult business. During a battle, Lachlan "Rouge Fox" MacGowan is struck unconscious, but is rescued by a mysterious warrior known only as Hunter, who later disappears. Determined to track down the warrior who saved him, MacGowan does find Hunter, but is in for the shock of his life when he finds out she is a woman. Hunter, or Rhona as she is really named, is a complex woman who has dressed the part of a man for years and Lachlan is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. But it seems that Rhona has other secrets to hide: she may also be a traitor on a deadly mission. Lachlan has no intention of just letting Rhona travel without him. And the passions that flare between Rhona and Lachlan only complicate matters in an already dangerous situation.
Warrior Bride is the third entry in the popular Highland Rogues series, and it may well be the best book yet. Ms. Greiman populates her tales with a vivid cast of secondary characters, which help round out the story. There is intrigue (16th century politics are complicated), passion and humor which make for another wonderful entry in this series that historical romance fans will surely enjoy.
The Warrior Bride is available for purchase on Amazon.com
