Note: Because we'll be talking about a scene dripping with delicious despair, this post may contain spoilers for anyone who hasn't read The Beast of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood... but we promise it will make you want to read it.
If you were to simmer the melting pot that is romance down to its essence, you’d be left with relationships. All romance, at its core, is about relationships and people finding each other. Finding that person who makes you feel whole. That person who completes the puzzle and flips the proverbial light switch in your soul. The person who becomes your home, no matter where life takes you.
That’s what the hero and heroine in Lily Blackwood’s debut Scottish historical are looking for. Niall Braewick is the son of the Laird of Kincaid, spirited away by a warrior on the night his father lost everything to greedy men and was murdered. Niall has been in hiding, honing his skills as a mercenary, biding his time, when his chance for revenge presents itself in the form of the MacClaren chief, the man whose family now controls the former Kincaid lands. Falling for the MacClaren’s eldest daughter is an added complication he doesn’t need.
