Haunted by the death of the woman he married to become laird of Clam MacGahan, Malcolm MacDowylt can only see himself as a failed warrior. But neither his Viking heritage nor his claim to have descended from Norse gods can restore his confidence in his ability to protect his people. His sister is being held captive, and his magically powerful half-brother wants him dead. The last thing he needs is more responsibility or more family trouble — but that is exactly what he gets when his Faerie mother-in-law arrives, seeking justice for her daughter in the form of an enticing young woman who claims to be from the future.
Danielle Dearmon has waited fifteen years to discover the life she is supposed to live. She just never dreamed she would end up in the thirteenth century with a handsome Scot bent on saving everyone but himself.
With the lives of those most dear to him hanging in the balance, Malcolm sets out to battle a powerful evil magic, only to learn that the redemption he seeks exists in the arms of the woman he loves.
Warrior's Redemption is a fun romance read with a sprinkling of magic and time travel thrown in the mix. It's the second Melissa Mayhue book I've read, after A Highlander Destiny - one of the books in the Daughters of the Glen series - almost two years ago. In the new novel, Ms. Mayhue adds a touch of Norse mythology to her entertaining time-travel romances.The story is well written, with nicely developed characters. There's love that spans centuries, magical abilities, adventure, danger, and a wicked villain who wants to rule the world. Warrior's Redemption is the first in a brand-new spinoff series that I am looking forward to reading.
Warrior's Redemption is new this week from Pocket Star, a division of Simon & Schuster.
