Highland Conquest by Heather McCollum is book one of her Sons of Sinclair series. This is a fine example of historical romance.
Cain Sinclair has been raised to conquer everything and everyone he comes into contact with. His ultimate goal is to conquer and rule the clans bordering the Sinclairs and eventually all of the Highlands. He plans to begin with Clan Sutherland. Marrying the current chief, the brave and beautiful, Ella Sutherland, seems to be the fastest and easiest way to achieve his goal. Ella is a warrior and refuses to yield to any man and especially not to the hated Cain Sinclair. Men have tried to control her all her life. She wouldn’t yield before and she won’t yield now, no matter the cost. Cain is determined to win the land and the lady. Ella is determined to keep her promise and conceal the secret she’s been hiding since she was a child.
Highland Conquest is well-written with a great plot and characters. The novel is easy to read but exciting in all aspects. I anticipated each new chapter, even the next paragraph. This is a well-executed steamy romance, not cheesy in any sense. The interesting premise is followed through with full execution. Some of the content is explicit, but it’s all exquisite. I am compelled to rate this novel 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to readers who enjoy steamy historical romance, especially Highland romance.
