Length  172 pages

856 CE, Ireland is a land of myth, magic, and blood. Viking raiders have fought the Irish for over half a century. Rival Irish clans promise only betrayal and carnage.

Kaireen, daughter of Laird Liannon, is suddenly forced into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, a Viking. She refuses to submit. With no mention of love, only land and the protection of her clan, she endeavors to get her betrothed banished from her country. Will love find its way around her stubborn heart?

Bram, the Viking, finds himself without future or inheritance as a younger son in his family. A marriage to the Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will fight along with the Liannons against any foe - Irish or Viking. However, the Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?

With the blame for a rival laird’s death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.

Catrina's Review:

Characters are well developed. I adored how feisty the heroine is. She has an inner strength I don't see much of in the world these days. Which also leads to one of her biggest flaws.
The hero is lovable, strong, protective, ect. I adore how he loved the heroine since before we met him. Sadly, that measure of true loyalty and devotion is sorely missing from the world these days.
The twists {some predictable, others not.} were creative and appropriate for the time period of the plot. Both characters learn some hard lessons.
