This series has become one of my favourites in Historical Highlander Romance. It’s not just the characters that make this series great, but they are pretty special. It’s jam-packed full of strong heroes, feisty heroines, engaging additional characters and baddies that turn your stomach. These people became my people and their challenges were ones that I wanted to be a part of. I became a Kincaid and I wore my name with pride. It’s not just the storyline that makes this series entertaining. At the end of each instalment, I’m hungry for more. Murder, mystery and battles keep the story exciting and fast-paced. I was invested in their battles because I believed in their fight for justice. Of course, there’s the love story that simmers as the battles are fought. Will their lust turn to love? Will their battles make them the victor? Will the winner take all? Each page that’s turned could be the answer, and I couldn’t turn them fast enough. It’s the whole package that came alive for me. The characters were easy for me to picture and I even googled a kirtle so I could picture Derryth’s clothing. Now, when it came to Cull’s, no googling was necessary. I’ll stick with the image on the cover, thanks, Lily. There were castles, bathing tents, muddy camps and Persian rugs to imagine. Derryth and Cull deserved a forever kind of love and I was eager to see them get it. Obviously, it’s a romance, so it should all turn out right. I’m satisfied with my romance read if the author makes me nervous, keeps me doubting and has me hesitant to believe I’ll be satisfied in the end. I always hope for a HEA but I somehow manage to trick myself into thinking that maybe this one could be different. I don’t want it to be different, but, you know, it could happen… Sure, The Warrior of Clan Kincaid could be read as a standalone, but I really believe that you’re missing a treat if you start at the end. Each brother has a story to tell, and you are truly invested in the battle when you know each step that’s been taken to get to the finale. If you’re a fan of Highlander Historical Romance, l recommend trying this one. If heroes that are good, strong, determined, sexy and loving, float your boat, I believe you’ll love it. A heroine that is feisty, brave and strong-minded, is one you admire, I think this will be a good match. The Highland Warrior series is fantastic and The Warrior of Clan Kincaid was an excellent instalment. I can’t wait to see what Lily Blackwood brings out next.

    4 1/2 stars In a word: satisfying The Warrior of Clan Kincaid is the final book in the Kincaid Brothers Trilogy, and it was a very satisfying and fitting finale. I would consider the first book in this trilogy to be one of my favorite historical romances in recent years; this one comes pretty close to matching it, in my opinion.

I would consider the first book in this trilogy to be one of my favorite historical romances in recent years; this one comes pretty close to matching it, in my opinion. In this concluding installment, the focus is on Sir Cull the Nameless. Cull's earliest memories are of being a slave aboard a ship where he suffers many abuses and witnesses the worst of mankind; he wears what he believes to be a slaver's mark under his arm as a constant reminder of his lowest of statuses. At around age 13, his life changes for the better when he is bought by the Earl of Buchan (known as "The Wolf") who claims to want to free him to fight for the Scottish King. From that point forward, Cull lives only to train as the fiercest warrior and earns a position with the elite King's Guard. He has been recruited by The Wolf to lead the siege on a castle that is occupied by "imposters"... the castle held by Niall Kincaid, the first born son of the Kincaid whose land was stolen by neighboring clan lairds and who executed his father and mother. It was believed at the time that the three Kincaid sons were also slain; however, it is revealed in the first book of this series that they were taken by various trusted clansmen to secure their safety; in the process, they were lost to one another. While the first 2 sons have been reunited, the third and youngest of the trio (Cullen) is thought to have perished. The Wolf insists that all three boys were murdered, and that the ones claiming to be Kincaids are imposters who have deceived the crown and must be usurped from their positions. What The Wolf does not know, however, is that each of the true sons of the Kincaid bear a mark that proves them to be the true heirs. Derryth is the younger sister of Niall Kincaid's beloved wife Elspeth. She has lived with her sister and brother-in-law, but Niall has determined it is best for her to be sent to out of harm's way to her stepmother's home as they anticipate a siege and further treachery to occur. Derryth is loathe to leave as she adores her sister's family, but she reluctantly agrees. Not long after they embark on the journey (using the less traveled routes and disguised as peasants), they are surrounded by militia who attack their meager caravan. As Derryth flees the nefarious intentions of the men who have her pinned down, Cull comes to her rescue and saves her from certain ruin. When he catches Derryth, she is covered in mud from head to toe, dressed in peasant wear, and stinks to high heaven; thus, Cull believes her to be a nuisance child. But once the filth is removed from her person, Cull realizes she is a stunning woman. Both captive and captor do their utmost to deny their attraction and growing feelings for one another as they are "enemies." What I liked: --- Cull was always honorable and forthright regardless of the corruption that surrounded him; he was a perfect hero in that sense --- Derryth was very likeable as a leading lady; she was just feisty enough to be believable, and her struggle with remaining true to her family while falling in love with the man she believes to be her enemy was well developed by the author --- The plot was exciting and fast-moving --- Oh the steamy goodness -- never graphic, but always very passionate with a physical and emotional connection between the main characters that is felt by the reader What I didn't like as much: --- There was what I felt was a little too much unnecessary angst with the main characters being separated; I would have preferred to have spent that time enjoying the mcs as a couple --- There was a secondary character (Nathan) who was one of the men captured with Derryth's traveling party that kept popping up throughout the book, and I was never quite sure why --- his intentions were not clear (Did he have feelings for Derryth? Was he just an a-hole who didn't care, which wouldn't make too much sense that Niall would have included him in the party with his beloved sister-in-law?) His constant involvement seemed to warrant a little more explanation that the reader was provided Overall, a thrilling and satisfying conclusion to an engaging trilogy about brothers who lost each other but were finally reunited and enjoying an HEA in their true homes with the women they love. Plot --- 4.5/5 Main Characters --- 5/5 Supporting Cast --- 4/5 Steam Level --- 3.5/5 Violence --- none graphic Language --- not egregious POV --- 3rd throughout slanted from the perspective of the MCs at times I received an advanced copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

You can clearly visualize what it was like to live in that period. She makes it that much better by throwing in a couple of fabulous MCs’ in a plot that keeps those pages turning! This is the third and final book in the Highland Warrior series. Each book tells the individual story of the sons of Clan Kincaid. Their father, the Laird of Kincaid was murdered, leaving his sons scattered. This installment tells the story of Cull, the youngest Kincaid and can be read as standalone. Derryth is the younger sister of Elspeth; the wife of Niall Braewick, head of the Kincaid clan. Derryth is living with Elspeth and brother-in-law. She’s been happy and is loved by many. But trouble is brewing and when it’s suspected they’ll soon be under siege, plans are made to send Derryth away to keep her safe. So, she sets of with a group of protectors chosen by Niall. Unfortunately, during their journey a group of mercenaries, hired to fight for the king’s army, attack them! Sir Cull the Nameless leads the division of the king’s army on a mission to defeat the highlanders seen as enemies to the king. Especially, the Clan Kincaid. As the army approaches their enemy, Cull gives strict orders that travelers are not to be attacked so as not to raise the alarm. When he finds his mercenaries attacking a group of “peasants” with a young “peasant” girl in danger of getting raped he’s furious. Not knowing the group is from the clan Kincaid, Cull takes them all into custody; and to protect Derryth from the soldiers he brings her to his tent. And so, starts the dance between captive-captor and the inevitable attraction that burns between them! Derryth is a slightly spoiled, charming young woman. She’s kind, smart and has a strong will. At first, she’s unsure of herself but she adapts to her captivity and becomes resolved to help those she loves. I loved her fierce loyalty and determination. I found her to be courageous and I truly enjoyed her character. She was the perfect match for Cull. Cull is an honorable man indebted to the man who bought him out of slavery as a young boy. He has no memory of his life before that. As a result, he has no clue who he is other than Sir Cull the Nameless, a soldier trained to fight in the King’s army. But he’s desperate for an identity. He wants a name, land and children of his own. His sole focus is to move through the ranks to achieve that goal. Little does he know that his supposed savior isn’t who he thinks he is… When Derryth finds a telling tattoo under Culls arm his world is turned upside down. Suddenly Cull the nameless most definitely has a name! What will he do? Will he exact his own revenge? What will that mean for him and Derryth? This is a great story full of intrigue with twists and turns that I found thoroughly enjoying. The romance was sweet (though a bit fast for those who aren’t fans of insta-love). The plot’s well-developed and told at a perfect pace. The main characters were fabulous; however, while enjoyable, the secondary characters tended to be a bit bland at times. That’s the only reason I dropped the review by a star. Thank you, Lily Blackstone for another amazing highland romance 😉 I’d recommend to anyone who loves big sexy highlanders!

The Warrior of Clan Kincaid was an excellent, tightly plotted story that brought together all lingering threads that remained for the mystery of the slain Laird Kincaid. I read it in two days which I have not done in several months. It felt good! Derryth is the half-sister of Elspeth. The story opens when she is forced to leave her home to avoid The Wolf. Unfortunately, she is later captured by the very man employed by The Wolf. Cull the Nameless is a ferocious warrior who still retains a strong sense of honor. Authors toe the line when they have captor/captive romances. There is always a risk of Stockholm syndrome or a creepy nonconsensual feeling. Fortunately, this is NOT the case here. I really enjoyed how the story snapped along and Derryth grew from a selfish young girl into a brave woman who knew what she wanted while Cull finally found the home and family he desperately wanted without having to compromise his code of honor. While some may think the romance developed quickly, I thought it still felt organic and real. I liked how little truths and character traits were revealed by actions, the threats to the character felt real and not contrived, and the sex scenes were great. My one niggle was that I thought Cull was waaay more accepting of the truth of his heritage than I expected. I know he was searching for a place to belong, but the reconciliation with the family was the only plot point that felt rushed. However, despite this one drawback, I thought this was an excellent installment and worth the wait. I will buy it when it comes out and will definitely be reading this entire trilogy again. It's my favorite linked trilogy that I've read in a long time. I cannot wait to see what Lily Blackwood/Lily Dalton comes out with next! Thank you to Netgalley for the chance to read and provide an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Cull has been rescued from slavery by Buchan The Wolf who have him trained as warrior and made him a leader of the campaign to obliterate the Kincaids. He's a loner, but feels extremly in debt to Buchan for saving him and thus serves him faithfully. He's harsh, but repected by his worriors. So when he find a group of his mercenaries attempting a rape, he's furious! He saves the victim and punishes the culprits. The victim I received this novel from net galley for an honest review.

So when he find a group of his mercenaries attempting a rape, he's furious! He saves the victim and punishes the culprits. The victim is Derryth, sister to the Kincaid chieftain's wife, who has been sent away by the Kincaids as soon as they had hint about the possible attack. Unfortunately she and the people who're escorting her are ambushed and she's been saved by Cull. Cull is instantly attracted to her as soon as she's clean enough to be recognizable as a young woman, but he thinks her to be a peasant returning home. This is their story. I liked it, but it was a bit insta-love/lust story. What I liked much was Cull. He's extremly honorable and just. While The Wolf wants Kincaids destruction, Cull want to defeat them honorably and becomes more and more aware that there's something sinister about how Wolf's manage this whole matter. He's able to juggle Derryth's protection, Wolf's machinations, Dancan's (Wolf's son) taunting and jealousy, with the help of Wolf's second son, Robert. Derryth is a very young girl. She's also very girly: she likes her dresses, her jewels, her hair... But she's thrown into a very dangerous situation and she's willing to adapt. At first she hates Cull because he's the enemy, but after witnessing his honorable behaviour, she find herself more and more attracted to him. At the middle of the book they're both in love with each other and seeks solutions to a really dangerous and seemingly impossible situation. At the end everything comes out! (view spoiler)[Cull is the lost Kincaid brother Cullen who was thought dead. Instead The Wolf sold him in slavery in order to seemingly buy him and save him, but making him his man and wanting to make him kill his true family! For the Wolf that is the ultimate revenge against the Kincaids! Sick bastard! (hide spoiler)] A lovely romance, but for me the insta lust/love was a little OTT, so I detracted 1 star from my rating. If that part was done a little bit differently, the story would have been a full 5 stars!

She captures the feel or this era really well. The story she tells grows bigger and more detailed with each installment. The mystery and suspense weaves in and out of each part smoothly and the MCs are the icing on the cake. Finally getting to meet the youngest Kincaid was exciting and Cull was such a torn individual. I loved his determination but it did border on stubborn when it came to Derryth. These two had some humorous moments that showed a softer side to Cull then what he shows the outside world. Not knowing his origins really messes with him and that prologue will make your heart ache for young Cull. His heroine Derryth, I was not expecting that! Loved that she goes through an important change in her own story. Gone is the young frivolous girl we've briefly met before and in her place is a grown woman who sees the bigger picture now. I loved that we get to see her grow into a strong partner for Cull and that she was instrumental in bringing this proud family together. This was more angst ridden then the previous books imo, and although the love story was great, the ongoing revenge plot felt like it faded into the background. I missed seeing the other brothers and was disappointed the family interactions were so few and far between. The ending was full of twists and turns that I did not see coming and it kept me glued to the pages. I have to say though that the Afterword regarding the Wolf - that right there - was AMAZING. Without it I think I would have minused a star but I'm so glad it was included because it gave the readers the closure we needed after three books of hearing the horrid things this villain did over something so petty! So thank you Lily Blackwood! That ending was so worthy of this series :) Memorable Moments: The secret wedding scene, who doesn’t love the dramatic antics of true love, Lol! Would I recommend? Yes. The series as a whole was awesome! I loved this time frame and the romance and heat was spot on J If you liked Julie Garwood’s Highlander romances (The Wedding, The Bride, The Secret, Ransom & Shadow Music) I think this will strike a chord. * * * ARC provided for an honest review * * * I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. SAFETY INFO: (view spoiler)[ Ages : Derryth is 19 and Cull is in his early twenties. Cheating :None. OM/OW drama : OW drama in the form of a spoiled daughter who wants to claim Cull. She’s catty and plays the clichéd evil woman role to a “T”. H had no feelings for her. Separation : They are separated for a few days. Push/Pull :Cull is a confused man in the beginning. After everything he’s been through and having his loyalty pulled in two different directions, it does cause him to pull away from the heroine. It doesn’t last overly long once the truth is revealed. Main Pursuer of relationship : I’d say it was mutual between both MCs. Cull being the more aggressive of the two. Triggers : None. HEA/HFN : Ends on a HEA, no epilogue but a very kick-ass Afterword that I just loved! (It’s about the villain finally getting his just deserts) (hide spoiler)]

I have never given 5-star ratings to all of the books in a series before, so this is definitely a first. The story immediately sucked me right into that time period and the lives of the people who dwell there and it didn’t let me go until some hours after I had read the last words. It is well plotted, excellently written and has very likable and relatable characters. You COULD read this as a stand-alone if you insist, but I cannot imagine why you’d want to. The first book sets up the background excellently and the second book builds and the third book – well, sadly I guess it ends it. There is also a most excellent ‘Afterward’ in the book, but I would have loved to see an Epilogue from 5 or so years down the road to see how they are all doing, how the kids, are, etc. After all – Cull had only just met his brothers at the end of the book and I’d love to know how their relationships developed. Yep – that is my one and only complaint about the book. Derryth MacClaren has been pulled from her bed in the wee hours of the morning to be dressed in the clothes of a servant. She’s placed on a donkey and told she must leave the castle immediately. She’s still groggy but knows she cannot, absolutely cannot, leave her nine-months-pregnant sister Elspeth (heroine from the first story in the series). However, Elspeth and her husband, Niall insist she must leave. Then, she suddenly knew why she was being made to leave. “It’s the Wolf, isn’t it?” Just speaking his name caused her vision to blur and her throat to close. As she set out on her journey she was accompanied by three of Niall’s best warriors and her old nursemaid. They were to take a circuitous route to get to their destination – it made the trip longer, but should have been safer. Sir Cull the Nameless is a knight in service to the king of Scotland. He’s the best warrior and the most honorable warrior in all of Scotland as well. Cull was a slave on a ship and was rescued by Buchan who took him to Scotland and placed him in a school to be trained as a warrior. Cull was only twelve years old when he was rescued and he had no idea what his name was or how long he’d been on that slaver's ship. Buchan has now called him to the Highlands of Scotland to perform a task for the King even though Cull has never been to the Highlands. Cull dreams of having a name, land and a family and this new mission will give him all of that. All he has to do is defeat the people at the legendary Castle in the Clouds and take possession. Cull’s forces are encamped several miles away from the castle when he hears a commotion and heads out to see what is going on. Some of the seedier men in his employ have defied his orders and stopped a set of peasant travelers on the road. Now that they have seen his encampment, he can’t let them go until after the battle. However, one of the servants is a young woman that he knows won’t last long with the men in his camp – so, he places her in his tent to avoid her being molested. Elspeth is frightened, but she cannot let the soldiers know who she is. They could use her as leverage over her sister and brother-in-law. She’ll play the part of a servant and learn all she can of their plans – and she’ll do everything she can to escape. Since Cull has Elspeth in his tent, they can’t help but come into contact with each other. Some of those interactions are funny – like kittens embroidered on his tunic – and others are enlightening. He becomes more and more possessive and protective of her – and she returns that, but she knows she has to escape and warn the castle. The way they come to trust and love is a delightful thing for them to share with us. They are both so sweet, kind and caring and their journey is not an easy one. In the end, you sometimes just have to learn to trust those you love. I was so pleased that the author tied up all of the loose ends for the series. Everyone and everything was accounted for. That said, I would have loved to learn more of what happened to Duncan – he certainly deserved more punishment than it seems he got. Also, there is Robert – I loved Robert and would dearly love to see the author do a story for him. He definitely deserves his own HEA. As I said earlier, I would have loved to see an epilogue further down the road to see how all was going with them. Maybe, just maybe, the author will add a fourth book, even if it is a novella, and we’ll catch up with all of them and see Robert get his HEA and see Duncan get his just deserts. I highly recommend this book and this series. Please check out my reviews at: Blog: https://flippinpages.blog/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/flippinpages...

    I seem to have stumbled on this series a little late as clearly there are characters here who have previously had their story told but nevertheless I did find this worked as a standalone for this reader. Derryth is a young privileged woman who seems used to getting her own way but when danger to the Kincaid family seems about to come barging through the gates she is sent away to safety.

Now there wouldn't be a story if something didn't go wrong and Derryth is captured by the Kings men and struggles to keep her identity secret. Cull only remembers being a slave so he has unwavering loyalty to his saviour the Wolf. Saving what he thinks is a child from rape gives him unexpected headaches when he quickly realises that the peasant is a female, beautiful and about to test him in ways he never expected. I'm very disappointed that the synopsis of this gives away what is only revealed at the end ! I know spoilers are unfortunately given when reviewers get over enthusiastic but honestly I wanted that little nugget to be a surprise. However I did enjoy seeing Cull start to challenge everything he believed in and of course the romantic scenes when the couple"choose" each other, sigh. A satisfying romance with enough historical detail to set the scene. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

Derryth is being sent away from the Kincaids because they fear being attacked by The Wolf but she is captured by the hero Cull the Nameless who is working for The Wolf. She stays with him in his tent under his protection. Cull is everything I love in a hero! He’s got pride, sense of loyalty and duty. He’s also a fearful warrior and the author doesn’t finish that even though his heart is captured by the beautiful heroine, Derryth. The heroine is said to be spoiled, but she didn’t act that way in the book or come off as annoying. She was warm and had a good heart. I’ve really enjoyed reading this series and am looking forward to more from Lily Blackwood! I'm happy to have have had the opportunity to read an early copy!

    Derryth MacClaren is sent away from Inverhaven by her sister Elspeth for her own protection, rumors suggest that the Earl of Buchan aka the Wolf has once more set his sites on Inverhaven, so she is being sent home until the threat has passed. But their plan is thwarted when a few hours into the journey, they are captured - by Cull the Nameless, a member of the King's Guard. Cull saves Derryth from being raped but he cannot let her or her kinsmen go, he takes her back to his tent to keep her safe Derryth MacClaren is sent away from Inverhaven by her sister Elspeth for her own protection, rumors suggest that the Earl of Buchan aka the Wolf has once more set his sites on Inverhaven, so she is being sent home until the threat has passed. But their plan is thwarted when a few hours into the journey, they are captured - by Cull the Nameless, a member of the King's Guard. Cull saves Derryth from being raped but he cannot let her or her kinsmen go, he takes her back to his tent to keep her safe and tells her she and her kinsmen will be set free once they have taken the castle. Cull is acting on orders from Buchan, the man who rescued him from slavers as a child and trained him as a warrior. He hasn't seen the orders to take Inverhaven, but he trusts Buchan. Derryth keeps her identity a secret and at first tries to escape Cull, but when that doesn't work she torments him. When Cull arranges for her to see Fiona and Deargh, Deargh suggests that she could be useful by keeping her eyes and ears open for information that will help her family beat Buchan. She changes her tact with Cull and soon discovers he is not the beast she thought he was. As they grow closer and she learns of her, her secrets weigh on her - she cares for Cull and desires him, but giving into her desire would be a betrayal to her family. Cull is falling for Derryth, when he learns part of her secret, he will have to decide if his loyalty to Buchan and the promise of his greatest desire is worth more than his love for her. But when he believes Derryth has betrayed and used him, he tries to forget her and focuses on taking Inverhaven and the promised reward that comes with his success. However, all is not as it seems and when Robert (Buchan's son) questions the orders to take Inverhaven, Cull realizes he is being used and goes to see Buchan for answers. When he gets to Craven, he finds more than he ever imagined and the truths he has known his entire life will be turned upside down. Truths will be revealed, promises will be made, secrets will be shared, jealousy will be rampant and others will interfere to keep our lovers apart and help will come from an unexpected source. Of the three books, this one is far and away my favorite, it is a well written, fast paced, steamy read with a lot of secrets, twists and turns, betrayal, shocking revelations, a little heartbreak and finally a very satisfying HEA. There are a couple of things that kept this from being a 5 star read for me, but none of them are major, a dropped storyline, a couple of scenes that did nothing to move the story along and an unbelievable love scene - nothing that ruined the story, but did distract me, but please note, the copy I read was an uncorrected edition, so issues I encountered, may well be corrected before publication. This is the third book in the series, but it can definitely be read as a standalone title. I am happy to recommend the book and hope Ms. Blackwood is planning a story for Robert, because that is a book I definitely would like to read! *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an uncorrected eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher.*

    Lily Blackwood is a new author to me so I haven’t read the other books in this series but The Warrior Of Clan Kincaid can be read as a standalone. I seriously loved this book!! I am so happy to have found another historical romance author to read that I am doing a little happy dance! Simply fantastic! Rich, captivating characters that make you fall in love with them.

There are so many great laugh out loud moments. While there were parts i would have loved to read more about it was written well with great strong characters and a great back story. This is the first novel from this author I have read. I cannot wait to read more.

Captive-captor romances are either hit or miss with me and most of the time it is miss. Which incidentally is hilarious as I love all versions of Beauty and the Beast which is of course one the most well known captive-captor romances. In this trope, there is always a power imbalance and it has to be perfectly done otherwise when the captive starts to gain the upper hand I am still too angry to move past the actions of the captor and I am unforgiving of both the captive (for being a fool) and the captor (for being a horrible character). So all of that to say that I very much enjoyed reading The Warrior of Clan Kincaid! This story absolutely follows the captive-captor trope but it was written perfectly with lots of emotion, conflict, power struggles, love, sexy times, and a little mystery as well. What made this story palatable for me was the captor character, Cull. I incredibly disliked him at the start because he was very unfeeling. Despite his detachment from most emotions he was honorable in protecting those he considered weak or in need of protection. It did not mean that he would not deal with them harshly but he at least gave them a chance to avoid harsh treatment. I completely appreciated that he stepped in when the captive character, Derryth MacClaren, was being attacked. Although he didn’t help her because she was a woman or that she was just so lovely that he had to have her, no, he stepped in because he thought that she was a child and to allow her harm would be vile. I respected his character very much even though he did push me to my limits of understanding with his disregard of civilities when it came to his captive. I loved Derryth as a captive because despite her childish and immature ways pre-captive she held it together pretty well as a captive. She was smart enough to try and keep up the ruse that she was a simple peasant and did her best not to give away her true identity. What I loved the most was the ways that she defied her captor. She was passive aggressive but the shenanigans that she tried to pull were comical!! I will tell you that there is a scene involving kittens that is just hilarious and it is not what you think! Derryth was no fool when it came to her captor but at the same time she did eventually feel some tenderness towards him. Not because he inspired grand romantic gestures but for how he took care of those around him without seeming that he cared. For all the little things that Cull did to see to her comfort both physical and emotional. Definitely an amazing example of actions speaking louder than words and it was very swoony. So yes, The Warrior of Clan Kincaid is a romance but there were also some political intrigue elements woven into this story as well as a bit of a mystery. I really enjoyed following the twists and turns that took place as well as the smoldering romance elements. By the time I read to the end of this book I had experienced several emotions such as anger, fear, heart melting romance and happiness and they were very strong emotions which made this a fabulous read! There were a few parts of the story that I felt were rushed or fell into place too easily for me but overall it didn’t take anything away from the story for me, I just wished for more during those scenes. The Warrior of Clan Kincaid was an excellent example of captive-captor romance and even more lovely was that it was a historical romance with a great period setting. I highly recommend you grab a copy! This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating. Find this review and more at The Genre Minx Book Reviews

    I really liked the idea of a secret identity playing out in the Highlands, so I was pretty eager to read this one. Derryth and Cull are very bland. They seem to be good people who want the best for others, but everything I learned about them could fit in a thimble. There were no deep revelations of feelings towards each other. It read like they fell into lust because there was nothing else to do. Plot wise, it was dull. I expected battles and sword fights and maybe an axe and there was nothing.

The build up is non-existent and the ending was fairly lackluster. Overall, it was a quick read and did have an intriguing premise. Sadly, the execution wasn’t for me. **Huge thanks to St. Martin’s Press for providing the arc free of charge**

He doesn’t understand the hatred for the Kincaids but follows the orders he was given. Eventually, he learns more of his history. I won’t ruin the rest of this wonderful, complex story. I highly recommend this book.

She was most unhappy being made to leave Inverhaven in the middle of a cold rainy night. As her sister was set to deliver her first child at anytime now. Yet a serious threat was made again by the the Wolf. As Kings men, Buchan’s men were seen on nearby hill. That only meant the Wolf was waiting to attack and go after the clan Kincaid again, to finish what he started all those years ago. The man, Alexander Stewart, the Earl of Buchan who organized the murders of his family and stolen his home, lands and clan. He organized the brutal murder of Niall’s parents and youngest brother all those years ago. Elspeth and Niall want to keep Derryth out of harm's way. Yet even sending her with Niall’s second in command, his best warriors, in the disguise as farmers under another clan name. They would actually be going to the MacClaren stronghold-where her widowed stepmother and young adolescent sisters lived. The undercover story was they would be helping with the farming in the fields of another allied clan name. This was to keep them off track and to keep hidden their true identities and destination. Elspeth would join her as soon as she delivered the baby. Yet their party ambushed by wild highlanders working for the Wolf. Yet she is saved by Cul the nameless, the Kings Guard sworn to serve the Scottish King. He is also called commander, best warrior and Knight. He has no trust of this group of peasant travelers, so keeps them under his protection. The mud covered girl is separated and must stay with him in his sleeping quarters. He feels it is the only way this party will not escape as he has no trust of them. He even suspects they could be Kincaids! So until he has taken over Inverhaven he will keep them as guests. Cul had been rescued on his slavers ship and a Kings man ask him his name. He says Boy as he doesn't have any memory since forced to be slave at eight years old. So when this Kings man offers to train him as warrior, to work for the Scottish king and to be free. Twelve year old Cul jumps at the chance. Now as a man, the only thing Cul the nameless wants is a home, lands wealthy heiress and bairns and a name. The Wolf dangles Inverhaven in front of him but also his recent prize, Derryth. He only has to destroy the Kincaids and all his dreams will come true! Yet now Cul the nameless Warrior has fallen deeply in love for his prize, the little captive peasant. As derryth doesn’t expect to fall for her jailer. A man with no memory who will do anything to possess a home, lands, heiress wife and mostly a name. However, his rival the Wolf's son Duncan is extremely jealous of his father's favorite warrior Cul-the-nameless. So after Duncan does some investigating, he plans in doing some deadly damage to Cul’s favorite peasant and keep her for himself. In addition Derryth realizes too late that Cul might be the third missing Kincaid brother. That would be Cullen Braewick, the youngest son. From what she thought was what Cul thought was a slavers mark was not that at all. Derryth realizes was a mark he and all the Braewick brothers were given at birth! The problem is she is not certain, never seeing these precious tattoos up close. That would be Cullen Braewick, the youngest son. Yet Cul fears if he gets his vengeance against the man who put him on a slavers ship and then just acts like his rescuer to train him as a King’s man and make him a free man. Just as the Wolf’s dark twisted plan is for Cul to destroy his own family. Yet as a Kings man Cul has to listen to orders!Are they the Kings orders or just a madman's plot for vengeance? In addition his main priority is to keep the woman of his heart safe from harm. What will Cul do? will these star crossed lovers find a happily ever after? Will it end with the man she loves stealing her home and slaughtering all those she loves? Will her love turn into hate? Or will Cul finally be reunited with a family he never knew he had? If that possibility can ever become a reality. Plus many people want to divide and conquer Cul’s prize from threats and jealousy. Find out how this serie finale ends in a shocking conclusion that will curl your toes! I highly recommend this brilliant masterpiece. One of my favorite books of the year! A fast paced page turner! Another riveting adventure with non stop action, murder, treachery, mayhem, villains, vengeance, betrayal, brotherly love, passion, honor, forgiveness and love. All the elements that Scottish historical romance readers love! It will melt your heart and touch your soul! Sadly this is the third book and finale of the Highland Warrior Series. I so loved all three novels, all brilliantly written. I think The Warrior of Clan Kincaid might be my favorite of the series. You can read this as well as a stand alone book. I personally like connecting the dots between each brother and previous book characters. I have also read each book in this series in under twenty-four hours which is rare and means its another Lily Blackwood masterpiece! I certainly hope this author has more scottish historical stories to tell. This exhilarating book will absolutely blow you away! The setting is beautiful, dialogue is breathtaking, swoon worthy hero and protective heroine. A woman who will do anything to to care for those she loves!

In the first volume the first born, Niall, took back the clan by wedding one enemy’s daughter. In the second Magnus discovered he wasn’t the illegitimate son of another enemy. It’s time to meet the third brother. Cull was freed from a slave dealer by the last (and most powerful) enemy. He has no memory before his slavery, and thanks to the one who freed him he has become a powerful warrior for the Scottish King. He’s here to apply the royal justice against the Kincaid brothers of whom he doesn’t know anything, and the enemy promised him a name and lands, big thing for him who is called Cull The Nameless. He’s a honest hero, decent, perhaps a bit obtuse at times, but who doesn’t enjoy violence but only justice. When he discovers he has perhaps been duped he doesn’t hesitate to search for answers and refuses to take the law into his own hands, preferring to refer it to the king. Derryth is the half-sister of the heroine in the first volume. She has the feeling she serves no purpose as a woman and has decided to implicate herself more in the castle’s existence. She’s nice but a little too easily angered even if she knows how to control it. The attraction between them is fast even if they try to resist, especially Derryth because she knows Cull is her family’s enemy (he doesn’t know her real name), but the feelings come too quickly. Fortunately after some event the story is spread on several weeks so we can believe in this couple. I didn’t really understand the logic for the hero of the first volume, where Derryth is at the beginning of the novel, to send her home with a handful of guards, in a two days travel, because there are perhaps soldiers ready to attack. If there’s a threat she’s more secure inside the castle than on the road isn’t it? Well what was bound to happen happens, they’re captured – well, if not, the couple wouldn’t have met… At the end Cull is recognized by his brother and the big bad guy is punished, without big battle or blood. However there’s a hole concerning a traitor we don’t know in the end what happened to him, which I find frustrating. But the whole seemed floppy and I was less thrilled by this last volume than by the previous ones in spite of its evident qualities.

Derryth is a very mature nineteen-year-old who found her HEA with a warrior who not only captured her but her heart as well. Cull is a warrior who owes his loyalty to the Scottish King who knighted him even though he has no name. And owes his life to an Earl they call the Wolf for saving him from a slaver’s ship. There’s plenty of action betrayal and mystery and Blackwood does a good job of tying all the knots before novel’s end. The couple are likeable and the secondary characters add depth to the couple’s tale. The backdrops of the beauty of the Highlands add authenticity and the dialogue is easy to read, the tender romance and the duo overcoming the odds is heart-melting. If you’re a fan of historical romance and characters who roll their RRRs and paint themselves blue come back to the Medieval Highlands. As with all trilogies the should be read in order. SUMMARY: Derryth MacClaren was on her way home, sent away from the danger her Kincaid clansmen feared only to end up captured by the very enemy she was trying to elude. Now a captor of Cull the Nameless she must try to curry favor to learn what he plans against her kin. So why does she want to trust him, and why oh why does she desire him as a man. Cull upon orders of the King of Scotland and his benefactor the Earl known as the Wolf is on his way to lay siege on the Kincaid castle when his men capture a group of common travelers, one of whom is a spirited beauty. He puts them to work in his camp knowing he must detain them until the battle is underway and the beauty he has tending to his things in his private quarters to keep her away from his hungering men and more importantly to keep her near him because even though he knows he can’t have her he wants her with a fierceness he’s never felt before.

Her words paint pictures, allowing me to visualize life in the highlands as it would have been in 1390. And her storytelling brings me along on a sometimes emotional, sometimes frightening, sometimes sensual, and, ultimately, celebratory journey that I feel like I'm experiencing with the characters. I don't read about their journey, I journey with them, and that's what a good book should do. Cull and Derryth are characters who engaged my heart, my mind, and my romantic soul. Their bond is so deep, so complete that I was certain their love would conquer any obstacle in their way...and Blackwood throws more than a few obstacles in their path. If you have not yet discovered Lily Blackwood, I highly recommend the three books in her Highland Warrior series: The Beast of Clan Kincaid, The Rebel of Clan Kincaid, and The Warrior of Clan Kincaid. I don't know if Blackwood plans to return to this world but there's a secondary character in this series who has proven his worth and deserves a happy ending. I'd like to go on record with my wish for a story for Robert and if that story could include the Kincaids, all the better!

It has been so long since I have read one of these and this DID NOT DISAPPOINT! It was the perfect balance of steam and plot driven story and I kept getting annoyed at life interrupting (work I’m looking at you). . The story starts with our heroine trying to flee home under the cover of darkness after visiting her sister and being attacked by heathens. She is rescued by our hunk of a hero (broody type, swoon) who is leading an army to siege the castle that belongs to her sister and her sister’s husband. Covered in mud he has no idea what she looks like but to keep her safe from the men in the camp he makes her his temporary servant. When the mud comes off- he has never wanted a woman more, and she gets to see the man behind his stony facade. Both are on opposite sides of the battle but only one can win. . The hero was swoon worthy! A man of honour and integrity, commanding and in charge (alpha vibes) and who cares about the people under his command, I was ready to beg him to take ME! This was sooooo close to being 5❤️s but the only thing that held me back was how quick the heroine flicked to love after her capture, but I loved the rest of the book so I’m not complaining too hard. Also a side note- DO NOT read the blurb, it spoils the entire story line 🤦🏻‍♀️

    The Warrior of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood is one that I could not stop reading. The plot was intriguing from the start. I was curious about the the young boy who was a slave as a child and the spoiled young woman. How their paths crossed was a tempt of fate. In the previous plots before this one, readers are aware of the trouble from the villain aka Wolf. Wolf sought to destroy the Kincaid clan due to a personal feud. One that was his caused by his own doing. A woman scorning a man is seen r The Warrior of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood is one that I could not stop reading. The plot was intriguing from the start. I was curious about the the young boy who was a slave as a child and the spoiled young woman. How their paths crossed was a tempt of fate. In the previous plots before this one, readers are aware of the trouble from the villain aka Wolf. Wolf sought to destroy the Kincaid clan due to a personal feud. One that was his caused by his own doing. A woman scorning a man is seen repeated here. Yet there is much more to the tale than sympathy for the cast of characters.  Romance, action, adventure plus hot Scotsman are inside this book. I loved the heroine. She was a spoiled lady but willing to suffer for the ones she loves. Not wanting to leave her family behind, Derryth is sent away to prepare for her sister and husband to come over...yet, their plan goes bad. They traveled only a small distance before they are trapped. That's where the tall, handsome, yet unemotional man awaits. Taking them prisoners. The banters between Cull and English Guard and the Scotswoman is fun to follow. I was laughing, and devouring up every detail. Overall, I would recommend Lily Blackwood's novel to all readers.  I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.
