Alec Bowie never wanted a wife. He never wanted a hearth and home. And he most assuredly never wanted to be chief of his clan. But much to his vexation, he finds himself in possession of all three.His desire for peace and to protect his clan are stronger than his desire to remain free and untethered. He agrees to the marriage in the hopes his wife will bed him only long enough get with child then leave him the bloody hell alone.
Leona MacDowall, or Leona ‘Odd Eyes’, Leona the Witch, or Leona The Devil’s Spawn depending on to whom you speak, is all too happy to volunteer to marry the Bowie Chief. Though the clan Bowie's reputation as murderers and thieves precedes them, she believes life with Alec more palatable than living the rest of her life untouched, unmarried, and under the hateful rule of her spiteful father.
Will Alec be able to stick to his original plan of getting his wife with child then leaving her be?
Will Leona finally find the happy home she has always desired?
Will either of them live long enough to realize either of their dreams? Or will the person set on murdering Leona succeed?
Alec Bowie took control of the Bowie clan a short while ago. He is trying to turn them into a peaceful clan and stop them forever thieving. The best way to start making peace with the other clans is marriage. So he is going to ask for a bride.
Leona McDowell has lived without love all her life, even her own father hates her. Marrying the Bowie chieftain is her only chance of a marriage and children .
Ooh, our poor heroine tries so hard to do everything she can to make a home . Our hero is so busy with rebuilding the clan, he can't see what is happening under his nose.
There is someone in the keep who wants the clan to stay war like and is mad enough to kill whoever stands in the way. You will never guess who it is.
I was dragged into the lives of the clan from the first page. Do they really deserve the terrible reputation they have ?? Trying to read the last few chapters was difficult because I was crying so much.
You can read this as a stand alone and love it, but I think it would be better reading the series in order.
