A Viking on Highland Shores

(The first book in the Highlanders and Vikings series)
A novel by


The Viking warrior she fears the most is her only hope.

Nightmares of the Viking raid she had experienced as a child are still haunting Ailis Malloch. With three children and her husband, Horas, gone, one would expect that Ailis would have crumbled under the pressure, but she is successfully replacing Horas as the clan leader. However, even the strongest woman can not lead alone forever, and Ailis must marry again or lose the leadership.

For the second time in her life, Ailis is dressed up like a bride, but this marriage day will be far worse than her first one… The terror of her childhood years is back, and the ceremony is interrupted by bearded beasts with helmets; an army of Viking raiders is on her doorstep!

All Ailis can think of is the safety of her children, but before she can take action, she comes face to face with a colossal warrior that looks more like a Godlike creature from legends than a man. The fearless Scottish mother attacks him, determined to die fighting if this is meant to be her final act. Ragnar Hoffstad, the Viking Earl, is able to dodge her sword with ease, but he is surprised by her spirit.

As if he was carrying livestock, Ragnar grabs the brave brunette woman, and he carries her to the Viking camp, not knowing she is the clan leader. There, side by side with her worst fear, Ailis will be surprised as many of the things she thought about the Vikings are untrue. Fearsome as he may be, Earl Ragnar is not as violent as he seems, and after a few days, he lets her return home! However, the joy of reuniting with her children will not last long.

Horas, Ailis’ husband, is back, and even if they were never close, he now feels like a stranger. Horas has returned only to gather warriors from the village and continue his war away from the clan. Instead of bringing his own men to help with the raid, he will further weaken the clan and leave them completely unprotected from enemies.

Desperate, with no allies and between warring armies of men, to save her clan, Ailis has one crazy idea that might work. She will go back and seek the help of the man who she fears more than anyone; Earl Ragnar.
