In Warrior’s Redemption by Melissa Mayhue, Malcolm MacDowlyt is a warrior who feels he has failed his family, his wife was killed because he failed to protect her, his sister is held captive by his power hungry brother and the only way Malcolm can save her is by agreeing to wed the daughter of his ally. But all Malcolm really wants is to spend more time with the mysterious Danielle but not at the cost of his sister or his people’s lives.
Danielle Dearmon has always believed in fairies and felt out of place where she has lived. One night she decides to put the fairies to the test and ends up waking up in medieval Scotland. It is everything she expected and more. Finding herself drawn to the heroic Malcolm, Danielle finds a place for herself in his castle but realizes she must leave the only place that has ever felt like home when it becomes clear that Malcolm must marry to save his people. But will the fairies grant her a second wish and does she really want to go back to her own time?
Warrior’s Redemption is a spin off series from Melissa Mayhue’s Daughters of the Glen series. Malcolm is a descendant of the Vikings that once landed on the Scottish shores, marked by the god Odin, Malcolm follows the old ways. I loved the combination of the Norse traditions with the Scottish traditions! In a genre overflowing with books (by that I mean the Scottish romance novels) Warrior’s Redemption is a refreshing breathe of fresh air. Danielle’s excitement and joy despite being removed from her time period is fabulous, no whiny heroine here. Fans of Scottish romance novels will love Warrior’s Redemption.
