This is the fourth book in the series and followers of the series will revisit beloved characters. Readers can read this as a stand alone book as well. So either way is a win/win. I highly recommend THE HIGHLANDERS Norse Bride, A Novella by Cathy & DD MacRae.
I received a complimentary ARC from the author. I voluntarily agreed to read, review and blog. All thoughts, ideas and opinions are my own.

Hanna is a woman on a mission of revenge against the Scots, driven by the pain and despair of losing her family when raiders invade her home. Alex is a man mourning the loss of his wife and three children. and has no desire to wed again.
When the two of them meet and clash, there is so much mistrust and prejudice to work through.
Alex, oh Alex. *sighs*
I have to admit I've been in love with Alex since The Highlander's Crusader Bride and totally fell for him in this story. Out of all the women in the series, Hanna is one woman whose distrust of the Scots is fully justified. So Alex had his work cut out breaking down her barriers.
This story is heart-wrenching in places. But it makes the happy ending totally satisfying. One of the best highland romances I've read. Absolutely loved it. Best book of the series!

I volunteered to review this book
NOTE: For followers of this series, THE HIGHLANDER’S NORSE BRIDE bridges the gap between The Highlander’s Crusader Bride (Book #3) and The Highlander’s Welsh Bride (releasing sometime in 2018).
Told from dual third person perspectives THE HIGHLANDER’S NORSE BRIDE follows Hanna of Hallstein in the aftermath of an attack by the Scots, on her Norse village, that killed her children, and left her a widow. Hoping for revenge against the Scottish King, Hanna finds herself a willing captive, working for Clan MacLean, and their Laird. Enter Alex MacLean, Scottish Laird, and the man with whom Hanna will fall in love. What ensues is the quick building relationship between Hanna and Alex, and the potential fall-out as Hanna is unable to accept the love of a man, she once deemed the enemy.
Hanna is a strong woman with the ability to defend and protect but there comes a time when strength and determination are unequal to the conflict of war and the abuse of power. Laird Alex MacLean struggles in the aftermath of his wife’s death; raising his daughter, Alex never consider remarriage but the sight of the Norse ‘Valkyrie’ finds our hero longing for a woman, and the potential for a new heir.
The relationship between Hanna and Alex is quick to develop. Alex’s attraction to Hanna is immediate but Hanna struggles with the recent death of her husband, and murder of her three children. The $ex scenes are intimate but mostly implied.
THE HIGHLANDER’S NORSE BRIDE is a quick read; a sweet romance between two people who caught in a war not of their making. Some of premise is loosely based in historical fact as the author adds a history lesson at the end of the story line epilogue. The premise is a well-rounded, intelligent and charming look at the thirteenth century, fictionalized history, and the war between the Scottish and the Norse. The characters are strong, and inspiring ; the romance is tender and passionate. THE HIGHLANDER’S NORSE BRIDE is the perfect read for lovers of historical Highland romance.
