Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

It has been prophesied that four men, raised as brothers, will bring Scotland back to her rightful glory. It is time for the second to take up his sword.

When a Highland warrior fights, he fights for honor. And when Reeve MacAlpin sees a beautiful stranger surrounded by bandits, he does not hesitate to do the honorable thing and dispatch her would-be assailants. But at her first grateful touch, his instinct to keep her safe is surpassed by a longing to keep her close . . . and to fulfill her every desire.

For as long as Tara can remember, she has lost the people she loves most—a curse that is sure to doom anyone who shows her kindness. She can never love without bringing death—and though her powerful Highlander champion tempts her beyond imagining, she fears that to give herself to him means his downfall. And yet she knows she must tempt Fate . . . for to resist him would be just as unthinkable.

About the Author

Part of the fun in writing, Donna Fletcher admits, is doing the research. But it is with her characters that she has the most fun. She loves giving life to fresh characters and feels their excitement as they face the pleasures and pitfalls of falling in love.

Donna's own adventures have taken her to England, Ireland, and Scotland. She has walked the fields where battles were fought centuries ago, toured haunted castles, stood where beheadings were commonplace, explored the mystic mounds of long ago, and collected a plethora of memories and research that will live long in her heart and mind. She also loves exploring and photographing old abandoned homes, and she often takes long walks in the woods with camera in hand. She feels her life is rich and full, having three terrific sons, two fantastic daughters-in-law, an endless supply of friends, a loving dog, and a crazy, black, one-eyed cat named Bear.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Four bandits trap the beautiful woman, but as Reeve MacAlpin observes from his concealment, none braved a step towards her as they feared her as the "death bride". They debated amongst themselves how to rob her and decided that to void the curse they must kill her. Reeve comes out of his hiding place to run them off.

Tara explains she is widow two times plus other loved ones have died as she knows she is cursed to kill those she loves. Her father has arranged for her third spouse, but this time she decides to vanish instead of having another corpse as a mate. They travel together, but many assailants stalk them. As the pair forges a relationship, he takes her to his family for her safety. He is in love, but she fears his death due to the curse that will kill him.

The second early eleventh century MacAlpin brothers' Scottish romance (see Bound to a Warrior) is an exhilarating refreshing medieval tale due predominately to what the curse does mentally to Tara and how Reeve reacts to it. Fast-paced but driven by the wonderful lead couple, readers will enjoy Donna Fletcher saga of "siblings" prophesied to raise the True King onto the Scottish throne.

Second in her Scottish warrior series, Donna Fletcher's novel Loved by a Warrior has a good plot with some interesting twists and turns. The dialogue was a bit repetitious though and conversations a little stilted.

Tara has been deemed a "death bride." A curse was spoken over her as a child; her first love passed away and her husband died before the marriage was consummated. Tara's father has promised her to another man and she wants nothing to do with marriage. She leaves her father's lands and finds herself surrounded by bandits.

She is saved by Reeve MacAlpin, who can defeat four or five men at a time. She is grateful but she is aware of her curse and keeps her distance from Reeve. She fears if he even touches her, he could die. Reeve likes Tara and convinces her to accompany him to his lands so that she may have a normal life.

He is aware of the curse but unafraid of it. In fact, he cannot believe that Tara has allowed it control of her life. Reeve comes from a family of four brothers and one of them is supposed to be the true king of Scotland. The phrase,"true king" is repeated throughout the novel. The reader does not know who this is; presumably the last book will let the reader in on the secret.

Tara enjoys life with the MacAplins but she finds ways to stave off Reeve's advances. She constantly tells him it is for his own good, and this is her mantra. She is so ensnared by the ranting of an angry woman from years ago that it colors almost all of her decisions. She is stubborn about so many things, especially rejecting Reeve's protective spirit. Whereas "I love you" is what most heroines long to hear from their heroes, Tara never wants Reeve to utter the words.

Unselfish love--a gift from the heart--is all that can take away the curse that was placed on Tara many years ago.

Raven-haired, lavender eyed Tara, known as the "death bride" seeks a safe haven to live her life in solitude where she will bring hurt to no one. While traveling she is beset by robbers. She stands her ground ready to accept her fate THEN the alpha-male Reeve MacAlpin comes.

A warrior, tall, lean, muscular, Reeve wields his lethal sword with exquisite grace and unerring accuracy. He takes Tara to the MacAlpin clan where there is no living in solitude. As she promised, she gives Reeve her money (almost all of it) which was "a bride's price", a virtual fortune. The MacAlpin protection is given in "friendship". She guards against love because death comes to those who get too close to her. She cares for the people of the clan and tries to hold herself apart from them so they will not die, yet she lives in fear of what might happen to them.

The MacAlpin clan's mission is to see the rightful King of Scotland back on the throne. Reeve and his three chosen brothers, all mighty warriors, take note of the increased presence of the corrupt King Kenneth's soldiers in their area. They sense the time draws near for action, yet realize there is something unusual about the often undisciplined actions of the soldiers. What finally comes to light sifts action into high gear for more than one reason. Tara's old life intrudes making twists and turns in the plot that keep the reader turning pages.

The Picts, a unique people of mystery whom many fear, bring their skills to help the MacAlpins when they bring one of the brothers home who was seriously wounded by the soldiers.

When Reeve comes across a lady surrounded by four men, he does what he must and saves her life. Lady Tara is tired and she just wants a place where she can live in peace and relative isolation, away from her cold father and where she can't hurt anyone anymore (for Tara believes that she is a death bride). Reeve knows he can't leave her in the middle of nowhere and so he offers to help her, and she offers him her bride price in return for his taking her to a place where she can live in peace. Reeve decides to take her to his clan, and so the story starts as they journey together through rough terrain to get to the McAlpin clan.

I really liked the interactions between Reeve and Tara, they had really good chemistry and they were honest with each other. Their friendship and attraction were very well developed. Reeve is a great hero, he is honorable and very protective of Tara. Tara is a good heroine as well, she is a vulnerable woman who displayed courage, but her fear of "the curse" became annoying after a while, because it was present for most of the book. Also the phrase "I will beat you" was repeated several times by Reeve when talking to his brothers, it became a little annoying.

Overall I enjoyed reading this book, it is fast paced and the sexual tension sparks between Reeve and Tara. And last but not least, I wanted to know if the four warriors knew which one of them is the king, and who the king is, this was the only loose end left open, apparently for the next books in the series. In the end, this is a good read, the romance between Reeve and Tara was sweet and sexy!
