My rating: 5 of 5 stars
'The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum is Book Three in the "Highland Isles" series. This is the story of Mairi Maclean and Alec MacNeil. I have read the other book in this series (and LOVED THEM!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Mari first marriage was for family alliance, which turned out very bad. Mari first husband was an older and hateful man. Whose son mistreated her when he was away. But now her husband is dead and she has returned to her brother. Tor Maclean (who we met in the first book). But now Mari has willing agreed to marry again for family alliances but this time she thinks that it a safe choice. But she is taken by Alec before she can marry.
Alec has two children who are left with no mother after Mairi husband killed his wife, In addition, the clan and neighboring towns people feel that his Castle is cursed. So most of the house workers are gone and the Castle is falling apart inside. So Alec thinks a Wife For a Wife and takes Mairi. But Mairi is a headstrong women who isn't easily talked into going along with his command of Marriage.
I so enjoyed this book and this series! Ms. McCollum has a way to make you feel apart of the story. I love watching Mairi build a relationship with the kids who were sad and neglected. Mari truly became the heart of Kisimul Castle! I also love with you have such great secondary characters that you hope you will see more of them soon in another story!!
Just Loved it!!
