Eighteen year-old widow Lydia Swann-Williston wants children of her own which means she needs to marry and that her marriage to Kieran, Laird Kilborn will help bring much needed resources and peace to her new clan, after the horrors of Culloden and the pacification. There are rumors though about the warriors of the clan. Not only are they ferocious warriors in battle, but thanks to their Viking ancestors they are berserkers who tear of the heads of their enemies and drink their blood. She's hoping those are just rumors, but as she gets to know her new husband and home she finds out that there's a lot she didn't know. Not only has Kieran greatly expanded her knowledge of what can go on between a husband and a wife, but his clan has changed her opinions of myth and truth. But will unheard of powers truly be enough to stop an enemy set on revenge?
This was a really intriguing book. I enjoyed the mix of genres, historical, vampire, and I would definitely say that the sex scenes even had a touch of BDSM to them. The men of the clan are very strong forceful men, but at the same time you see that they are also fierce and caring protectors of the clan. I also like the fact that this didn't feel like every other vampire book out there, not that I'm not a big fan of the genre. I can't really explain it but this story just had a different feel to it. It took me a little bit to get into the story but it was worth it, there's just something about Lydia, Kieran and the clan that slowly but surely drew me in. Not to mention how could you not enjoy the incredibly hot sex.
