Cressida curses her traitorous heart—this assassin has fallen for her target!

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes

I am so pleased to be involved in the Mini Blog Blitz promoting and celebrating the launch of Nicole Locke’s latest historical romance; Captured by Her Enemy Knight.

Cressida Howe first and foremost is a well-trained mercenary.  She’s accepted all her missions and was successful in them all apart from one.  Her father has trained Cressida well but he is adamant that this latest task is completed.  However, the victim in question gets to Cressida first and she is captured once again by this giant of a man that first took her heart when they were just mere children.  Cressida has kept this longing for enemy warrior Eldric of Hawksmoor, a loyal knight of the King hidden as she believed she wasn’t worthy of love.

Cressida has never considered herself a woman but once she lets her heart speak of it’s longing for her enemy knight she learns there’s a lot more to her life than her skills with as a top class Archer.

I really enjoyed being catapulted back to the 13th century with Nicole Locke and her romantic clandestine adventures with mercenaries, knights and pirates.  There was a wonderful tender developing relationship with our two main characters that once they let their history unfold their hearts were then left to bloom.

I enjoyed the drama unfolding and I wanted more from the ending as feel like Cressida and Eldric’s story is only just beginning.

A historical romance that is filled with raw, honest drama and passion.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Nicole Locke’s latest novel: Her Dark Knight’s Redemption.  I have the pleasure of sharing a guest post from the author.

Top Five things About Aliette from Her Dark Knight’s Redemption:

1. She’s the absolute opposite of the hero, Reynold of Warstone. Why? Because he’s been a villain and deserves all the complications she brings him.
2. How opposite is she? He’s educated; she’s not. He has a family who’s out to murder him…so he really doesn’t want to do anything with them; she’s busy adopting people from the streets to care for them. He’s wealthy; she’s from the streets. He sits and waits and watches and likes to play games; she cannot stand waiting. Who has time for dilly dallying or games?
3. Aliette doesn’t know how to read when the story starts, but she learns right quick. Why? Well, Reynold keeps picking up this one book in his collection and setting it down. He looks tortured by that book and she wants to know what’s inside. Funnily enough, it’s all about this hero who yearns for someone who loves him. The story: Tales of Odysseus.
4. She doesn’t mind the cold, she really really doesn’t (especially when there’s kisses involved).
5. Oh, and despite Reynold being a villain and all tough and everything? She saves his life (he kind of deserves that, too).

I am so pleased to be involved in the mini blog blitz celebrating and promoting Nicole Locke’s latest historical romance novel: Secrets of a Highland Warrior.  I reviewed this novel on my blog back in June so I’m excited to share it again with the blog blitz.

Secrets of a Highland Warrior is book four in the unique Scottish Highland historical romance series that is written by four different authors set in the same Scottish Highlands but in four different time periods. If you’ve never read any historical romance before this series would be a good starting point with it visiting different periods of time; you can then decide which period you prefer or if like me you’ve discovered a new era and have fallen in love with new historical time zones.

I would strongly recommend reading the books in the order they were published as you can then get a sense of the storyline, the secrets, the mystery and the rugged landscape.  The books in the series are :

His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston
Unlaced by the Highland Duke by Lara Temple
A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes
Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke

Secrets of a Highland Warrior is my first introduction to the work of Nicole Locke and her writing style drew me into a tale full of secrets, deceit, danger and love in the Scottish hills in the year of 1293.

The landscape of the highlands was strategically owned by different clans and the Chief of Clans were very protective of their land. However, when the King had granted some of the adjoining land to the Lochmore estate it was to cause a change of events for the future for many. As this adjoining land was currently owned by the McCleish clan and they were not to give up the land too easy.

Rory, son of the Chief of the Lochmore clan, was on his way to claim this new land. With his best friend Paiden and a few of his clansmen, he anticipated a fight would be forthcoming. What he didn’t anticipate was the daughter of the Tanish of the McCleish clan being part of the bargain.

Ailsa was the healer for the McCleish clan and was currently treating Hamish, Chief of the McCleish clan, who was gravely ill. Ailsa had been trained well by her predecessor and had been privy to secrets, which at first Ailsa thought were folklore between clans but when she meets Rory and notices certain traits about him Ailsa begins to wonder whether the words she heard in secret were actually true.

When danger reaches Rory’s party a race against time to save lives is at stake and Rory has to put his trust in someone he has only just met and that they are from an opposing clan.

With age old secrets and bitter feuds between clansmen slowly revealing themselves Nicole Locke has given us an historical mystery that is soon filled with a chemistry that sparks between opposing clans folk.

I have completely fallen in love with The Lochmore Legacy series with each story unearthing new facts surrounding mysteries of long ago with a clash of clans and a clash of hearts within each instalment. The epilogue rounds off the series beautifully which left me feeling quite emotional and bereft. Hats off to all four authors for a great concept for a historical romance series.
