He accepts Laird Sinclair’s offer of marriage to his only daughter, Katja, to seal the agreement between their clans. Peace between the two clans is finally on the horizon.
Katja however, is not so sure. She trusts no man, and not many lasse. She been raised around a clan that treats her no respect. She has brothers, of course, who tries to protect her ftom her father's harsh treatment. She is the best archer in her clans, though.
What starts out as a marriage of hope, soon turns to mistrust and someone in clan MacGerry is trying to run Katja away. She is accepted by her husband's family with open arms and some others in the clan, however, acidents soon start happening to her. She is poisoned, nearly raped, and set upon by thuds, it's a good thing she is a fiece lass who can protect herself. Calder is furious when he learns of the things that's been happening to his new wife. Can love grow from mistrust and hapastance?
"The Highlander's Viking Bride" is filled with intrigue, mistrust, danger, romance, betrayal and love. It seems when things happen to Katja her husband is not around he's often trying to increase his clan's strength, so he's absent often, he leaves his bride with his brother for her protection.
This story has everything a romance reader could possibly wish to find in a great read. From complex and engaging characters to intriguing plots to a dangerous trek to the Shetlands to finding a true and absolute love and another family she hasn't seen for many years, her mother's Viking family. There is a wonderful cast of characters, I can't wait to read more about their lives.
With mistrust, loneliness, much excitement, forgiveness, love and so much more, readers will be thrilled and excited to read Katja and Calder's story. I fell in love with them from the very beginning. Fast paced, a definite page turner, with so much to offer readers. Cathy MacRae does not disappoint readers. I hope you will see what I'm talking about and pick up you're copy.
A definite must read! An extraordinary Medieval Romance!!

I received an advanced reader copy and I voluntarily leave my honest opinion
Calder acquires the title of laird of the MacGerry clan after his older brother and then father dies, fighting their enemy the Sinclair clan. As new laird his first responsibility is to ensure his poor clan members do not starve during the upcoming winter so he decides to ending the quarrel with the Sinclairs and call a truce. On meeting the Sinclair earl, he soon discovers the man will make no deal unless Calder agrees to marry his daughter Katja. Calder really has no choice but to agree especially since he finds Katja attractive.
The start of their marriage doesn't bode well since Katja is coerced into it. She's not happy with the way she has been treated by her mean father. And she worries her new husband might be the same.
Calder has his work cut out, especially with the mistakes and trying to appease his distrustful wife. Throw in the fact that other members of his clan are not happy that he married a Sinclair and has made her their new mistress and you can imagine the looming disaster.
Something bothered me and it's to do with the characterisation of Katja.
I understood Katja to a point. She had to live with a cruel father. But she is strong and brave, and we are reminded often that she has warrior viking blood in her. But sometimes, she had the emotional maturity of a four year old. And this really got on my nerves. She was quick to jump to conclusions where Calder was concerned and usually the wrong ones. I kept thinking 'have some faith, woman.' You'd think she never had any positive men in her life. But she had brothers who obviously cared about her.
Sigh. Don't get me wrong. Even with Katja annoying me, I still enjoyed this story. I guess, it shows how invested I was in this brilliant story and I just wanted everything to be perfect.
This is my first time of reading this author and you can be sure she has a new fan. I can't recommend this enough. If you enjoy Highland historicals then you can't miss this one. Grab your copy today.
