He should never have kissed her…

She was meant to be his enemy’s bride…

Noble beauty Lindsay Ross has been sold to the highest bidder. On her way to meet her vile betrothed, a savage and mythic warrior slaughters her entire vanguard.

Connor was supposed to kill the tyrannical laird MacKay in order to free those people from tyranny and fear. Instead he ended up finding his mate in Lindsay Ross. Connor never wanted a mate, but his berserker claimed Lindsay the instant he saw her.  Now he just has to convince her to accept him.

Lindsay is a formidable heroine. She refuses to simply accept her fate and decides to orchestrate her own outcome. She’s strong and independent in a time when women were nothing more than chattel to be bartered to advancement of men. She does this without being a shrew. Connor is an alpha male who is the laird of  his clan. He’s accepted his berserker and has no plans for a mate. He’s stubborn and in typical male fashion, doesn’t understand women!

From their very first encounter, their passion burned hot. Lindsay and Connor would never be the same. Connor’s berserker claimed Lindsay but how will Connor get Lindsay to claim him and his berserker.

Kerrigan Byrne weaves a fantastic story filled with romance, magic, and passion. This is the second book in the Highland Historical Romance and it’s every bit as good as the first one! I’m hoping she will continue with this series or possibly write other highlander stories.

 Unwilling is currently available at Amazon for $2.99.


I am a happily married mother of three very busy children.  Most of my time is spent chauffeuring my kids to their various activities. I cram reading into any spare moment I have. Some days I can have an hour or two and others I’m sneaking in quick reads while waiting on the kids to finish their soccer or gymnastics practice. I like to read a wide variety of genres but I definitely prefer romance. I can’t really pinpoint a favorite author as it changes on a regular basis. I absolutely love finding new authors and giving their stories a chance to be heard. We all have a voice in our heads writing stories and those voices should be given a chance to be heard.

    Lee Anne, I am finding so many new to me authors through this blog and am so thankful to have found you. It’s like Christmas each time a new author comes into my life.
