Review: Embrace the Highland Warrior by Anita Clenney


















They were driven apart by a timeless secret...

Cody MacBain let the woman of his destiny slip away.  A member of an ancient clan of Scottish warriors, he grew up beside Shay Logan as her secret protector, but his heart compelled him to be more.  Until Shay's true identity was revealed, and the fated pair's chance was gone...

But danger will drive them back into each other's arms...

Shay fell for the boy next door, suspecting nothing of the ancient secret he guarded.  After what appeared to be a stinging betrayal, she's tried to banish memories of her first love.  However, the machinations of the sinister demon that left her for dead will force her to confront her past head on.

Now she must learn to embrace her warrior nature, and the warrior who has always watched over her, in order to turn back a tide of unspeakable evil...     description taken from back blurb.




~ ~Here is another little blurb of the book, this one taken from Anita Clenney's website to even further entice you:



When the powerful demon that left Shay for dead discovers her empty grave, he comes seeking retribution, believing she possesses an ancient book he has sought for centuries. Knowing she can’t fight the demon alone, Shay returns to her clan and the Scottish Warrior who betrayed her…the only man she’s ever loved, where she discovers that betrayal isn’t always what it seems. Sometimes it’s far worse.





This was a great book!  The characters were well developed and are very likable.  There was a lot of great detail throughout the book, as well as filled with bunches of excitement and romance.  I had a hard time putting this book down to do anything else during my day (I never wanted the book to end!).

I really liked that along with men being warriors in the book, there are women warriors as well.  It was a refreshing change.  I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

The first book in the series is called Awaken the Highland Warrior, and you can click here to read my review.


The 3rd book in the series is Unleash The Highland Warrior  (coming Spring 2012)

Here is a blurb of it from the author's website:


A talisman belonging to Tavis Connor’s brother is the only weapon powerful enough to kill the demon hell-bent on stealing the clan’s Book of Battles so he can destroy the world. But the talisman has been locked in a time vault with Tavis’s brother and won’t open for 150 years. In desperation, the Scottish warrior breaks the clan’s sacred rules and uses another time vault to travel forward so he can protect the book and rescue his brother, or if he’s dead, finish his quest. But when Tavis finally wakes in modern-day New York, he discovers he’s the one in need of help. Anna MacKinley has been searching for her clan’s Book of Battles which has been missing for 150 years, but instead she finds a warrior with no memories who claims he’s come to save the world.




I deem this book recommendable!
