Today I’m delighted to be sharing my review of Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke which is the final book in the Lochmore Legacy series.
About this book…
So it’s the final book in this brilliantly conceived series and what a book it is too! You can read any of The Lochmore Legacy books as standalone books but to be honest, half of the enjoyment for me has been working backwards through different time periods to get back to the mystery that has followed a Scottish castle through the generations. The books in order are:
His Convenient Highland Wedding (The Lochmore Legacy, Book 1) by Janice Preston
Unlaced By The Highland Duke (Mills & Boon Historical) (The Lochmore Legacy, Book 2) by Lara Temple
A Runaway Bride For The Highlander (Mills & Boon Historical) (The Lochmore Legacy, Book 3) by Elisabeth Hobbs
Secrets Of A Highland Warrior (Mills & Boon Historical) (The Lochmore Legacy, Book 4) by Nicole Locke
Rory Lochmore isn’t looking for a wife when he goes to reclaim his family’s land but it looks like a marriage of convenience to Ailsa McCrieff could bring their warring families together. And I thoroughly enjoyed this couples unconventional courtship! I had a picture in my head of Merida the Disney princess in Brave for some reason whenever I thought about Ailsa, probably due to the red hair but also due to a feeling of her being ahead of her time (this isn’t a criticism of the authors historical research!). There was a fire between Rory and Ailsa that really fitted perfectly into this series and gave us avid readers a fitting ending to this captivating series. Which brings me to the Epilogue which had me in tears as everything came together and all the ends were tied. Such an inspired finale to say goodbye to characters who have come to feel like family.
This is my first Nicole Locke romance and after what I’ve experienced in Secrets of a Highland Warrior, it certainly won’t be the last! And thank you to whoever came up with this concept and all the authors who made it such a pleasure to read and review.
Meet the author…
Nicole first discovered romance novels hidden in her grandmother’s closet. Convinced hidden books must be better, Nicole greedily read them. It was only natural she should start writing them (but now not so secretly).
