Description (From Amazon)

Read the next in the family saga of the historical Scottish Grant and Ramsay clans.

She convinces her brother’s best friend to help her stop a war. But will they provoke one instead?

Kyla Grant once believed her sire, the legendary Alexander Grant, was invincible, but his brush with death changed her mind. The whole clan is still reeling from Alex’s battle injury when a new threat arises from their long-time rivals, the Buchan clan. Kyla, convinced that the Grants cannot take another battle, is desperate for a peaceful resolution. Her plan is to make a personal appeal to the Buchan’s only living child, Davina, but she knows her parents would never allow her to risk her safety…

Finlay MacNicol is always quick with a joke, but life has never given him less to laugh about. His mother is dying, and yet another battle is on the horizon. When his laird assembles a group of warriors for a scouting mission to the Buchans, Finlay does his duty and joins them. He thought he knew what to expect from the mission, but he certainly didn’t expect that Kyla would sneak along, or that his laird would assign him as her protector. Kyla’s beauty has always affected Finlay, but her bravery and sweetness soon stir deeper feelings.

After visiting Davina, Kyla becomes determined to rescue the lass from the clutches of her abusive sire. Finlay agrees to help her, but there’s a risk they may provoke a war rather than prevent one.

My thoughts:

Kyla by Keira Montclair is one of those WOW stories. While, book 9 in her popular “The Highland Clan”, it can be read as a stand alone.

I was enticed and enthralled with Kyla Grant and Finlay MacNicol’s story. Well written, fast paced with an enjoyable and captivating cast of characters, both good and evil. The storyline flows seamlessly with intrigue, a bit of mystery and suspense, that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The plot is intriguing and captivating.
I was glued to the pages of Kyla and Finlay’s trust, and their love of each other and their clan. Kyla has such a tender heart, she gets herself and Finlay in a world of trouble when she tries to help her new friend, Davina, the daughter of Clan Grant and Clan Ramsey’s worst enemy, Buchan Clan.
My heart broke for Finlay and Kyla as they try to survive their ordeal with the horrible Glenn Buchan, his creed, his thirst for revenge and his desire to be a powerful chieftain.

The reader will found themselves thoughly invested in “Kyla”, from the romance to the intense suspense to the fighting and more. I absolutely love Kyla, Finlay, and the next generation of Grants and Ramsey’s. Such a fresh story with refreshing characters. I look forward to the next story in “The Highland Clan” family saga, which promises to be Bethia Ramsay’s story. The author gives readers a bit of insight into her story through the epilogue.
Keira Monclair is an amazing storyteller with her characters, her vivid descriptions and her knowledge of Scottish clans, family sagas, romance and passion. Simply mesmerizing! ! A keeper and true treasure of Scottish Romance. Another hit by Keira Montclair.

Sorcha Ramsay is as willful as she is beautiful, and she has mastered the art of convincing others to do her bidding. She coerces a few guards to bring her on a hunting trip, but when an unidentified archer targets them, Sorcha is restricted to the castle grounds. Worse, she’s assigned a lout of a guardian—Cailean, the maddeningly handsome guard who saved her from the archer—until her sire returns from a visit to the Grants. How can she show her sire, the infamous Logan Ramsay, she’s grown up if she’s not allowed her freedom?

Though he intends never to marry, Cailean finds himself captivated by Sorcha’s beauty and brash charm. He’s determined to keep her safe from the archer, whether she wants him to or not. Then Sorcha’s sire returns with news that has the potential to ignite the Highlands: Laird Alexander Grant has been badly injured. Trouble is brewing, and the archer, who may or may not be connected to a larger plot against the Ramsays and the Grants, continues to target Sorcha.

As the danger mounts and Cailean and Sorcha are brought together again and again, their heated attraction becomes a deeper connection. But can Cailean convince Logan, the most fearsome man in the Highlands, that he is a worthy match for his firstborn daughter?
My Thoughts:

Sorcha (The Highland Clan) Book 8 by Keira Montclair is an absolute pleasure to read. Can be read as a stand alone. Ms. Montclair has written a story that has so much to offer readers, it has danger, adventure, drama, excitement, a bit of humor, some witty banter and romance.
I was pulled into Cailean McAdam and Sorcha Ramsay’s story from the very beginning. Sorcha has gone from a wee lassie to a grown lass, which perturbes her father, Logan, the most feared man in the Highlands. He is legendary. Cailean is proud, strong and brave, a guard for the Ramsay’s, and also cares deeply for Sorcha, but he’s not in her social class, he’s a mere guard. Can he convince Logan he is a worthy suitor? Has Sorcha’s feelings grown to love? Will they survive the danger they are facing, from unknown assailants?

Readers, will simply be factinated and thrilled as they are reading, “Sorcha”. I myself was astonished at Cailean and Sorcha’s young love and how Cailean finally gave in to marriage, family, love, and how he was determined to prove his love, even to the point of nearly dying. Friendship can turn to a strong and determined love. The antics of Logan was hilarious at times, sad at others, as he fears losing his beloved daughter. Every father’s nightmare.

I highly recommend this fast paced, thrilling and highly anticipated story. It has everything a romance reader could possibly wish in a Scottish Romance, and more. Brilliantly and masterfully written. The cast of characters were fantastic, even the villains were quiet convincing, which only added to Cailean
and Sorcha’a story.
Keira Montclair is one of my go to Medieval Scottish Romance authors. She never disappoints me, she always leaves me in absolute awe. What a mesmerizing story!! Well done, Ms. Montclair! I can’t wait to read the next grand adventure. Powerful and compelling. A definite must read for fans of Scottish Romance.
