About the Book
Title: To Love A Warrior (Isle of Mull #3)
Author: Lily Baldwin
Release Date: November 21, 2014
Genre: Historical Romance, Viking, Medieval
Destinies unfold. Secrets are revealed. The Isle of Mull will be forever changed.
Half Highlander, half Viking, Garik MacKinnon was not born on the Scottish Isle of Mull, but fostered there in his youth. Now, he leaves behind his home, once more bound for Mull, to join the MacKinnon warriors as they answer Robert the Bruce’s call to arms. He is ready for battle, eager to fight for Scotland’s freedom. What he is not prepared for is his encounter with Nellore, a shield maiden from Mull, whose allure defies all reason.
Nellore has the strength and skill of a warrior but the heart of a woman. When the men are called away to war Nellore must aid those left behind to safeguard their village against attacks from the MacLeans—a feuding clan to the south. She understands her duty to her clan. She is ready to take up arms against the enemy if need be. What she is not ready for is the ache that fills her heart when war pulls Garik from her side.
Desire ignites and battles are waged as both Nellore and Garik learn what it means to love a warrior.
I received this advanced copy of “To Love A Warrior” for an honest review.
“To Love A Warrior” was full of passions, adventures, fierce highlanders, scenery depictions, romance, and epic intelligence. This novel focused on Garick and Nellore, who knew one another since child hood. These two are meant to be. I could see their passion and need for one another sizzling off the pages, in astonishment.
Author Lily Baldwin has taken me on another adventure that I did not want to end. Full of fiery spirits and a highlander, who you wish you could see with your own eyes, face to face, for even a minute. The characters are breathtaking in the Isle of Mull Series, “To Love A Warrior” being book #3.
Yes, if you haven’t read the first two installments of this series, then you have been missing out on one spectacular world! I envy Lily Baldwin and her writing skills. The talent she wields with the places she takes me to; all worth me sitting and not moving for hours. Every single novel she puts out just keeps getting better and better. Never a dull moment with the Isle of Mull Series.
The adventures, characters, and world are like no other I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I will read every single book that comes out in this series. NO DOUBT, I could read these books over and over for all eternity!
