Review by Lee Anne
“Angus hangs at dawn.” Four words that will chill anyone to the bone. Well, anyone reading the Clan MacDougall series by Suzan Tisdale. These words lead us into a world of intrigue, deception, and deadly games.
Angus and Duncan have been accused of treason. When the charges are read, both Angus and Duncan plead guilty. But why? Everyone knows they would never betray Scotland. But with their pleas, they are set to hang.
While McKenna’s Honor is not a romance in its strictest form, it’s still a story about love and devotion. It’s about the love Angus has for his clan and his wife. It’s about the love a man has for his wife, his clan, his country, his king and about the love a woman has for her husband, her clan, her country and her king.
And let me tell you, these are some serious kick-butt women! They do us proud 🙂
Although this is a novella, there is quite a bit going on in the story. It does a beautiful job of introducing new characters I hope we get to see in later stories and it brings us a little more information about the world inhabited by the Clan MacDougall. It definitely makes the other stories richer as it brings a new light and angle on some of the past events.
I’m so ready for the next Suzan Tisdale book. They just keep getting better and better!

ABOUT LEE ANNE:
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.
