Publisher's summary

Truth. Justice. Revenge. Behind these stands The Scotsman's Sword.

Gladiator meets Fight Club in the Scottish Highlands in a new romance from USA Today best-selling author Kathryn Le Veque.

When Lor Careston's quiet Highland village was attacked and burned, he felt helpless against the raiders who destroyed his home. Seeking revenge, but lacking the fighting skills he needs to execute his mission, he sets out to find the Ludus Caledonia - a mysterious fight guild that turns men into warriors.

Lor trains hard, proves himself in the ring, and earns a place with the very clan that decimated his home, having decided to set his plan for revenge in motion from inside the clan. But his plan didn't include Isabail Keith, a fiery lass who prefers broadswords to embroidery and isn't afraid to stand with the warriors of her clan. Lor thought the Keiths were his enemies, but when Isabail is threatened, he'll have to decide what he's willing to risk for the woman who has captured his heart and the clan that has become his home.

Wonderful!

Kathryn has written another great story! She never disappoints! They are filled with adventure, love, and plenty of fun!
Brad Wills is an amazing narrator! He has the ability to make me cry, laugh-out-loud, and hang onto every emotion with just his voice. He and Kathryn can bring a story to life like no other! What talented people! I can’t wait for the next one!

Medieval Ages

Kathryn LE VEQUE is one of my most favorite storytellers. I am intrigued with the Medieval Ages especially of Scotland, Ireland, Norway, England & Wales. She does intense study of her subjects, era & location/terrain.

Different, but enjoyable and interesting!

I really enjoyed this book very much. Although there is no battle, as is frequently the case in a KLV book, there are a few good descriptions of hand to hand combat, which held my interest. A great love story and strong family ties that tugged at my heart. I highly recommend the book. Brad wills was a treat to listen to as usual. Five stars all round!

The Scot who became a warrior

I really enjoyed this story. A bit different for KLV’s medieval stories. Both hero and heroine were strong, brave characters. There was intrigue, romance, some humor, and reference to ancient Roman fighting.
Brad Wills was excellent as usual.
