Review:

In Child of the Mist, a feud between warring Scottish clans is settled in the only way that lets both clans survive. A marriage is arranged between the Scottish chieftain of one clan and the chieftain’s daughter from the other clan. Their marriage ends the feud and thwarts a traitor. He has been stirring up trouble in an effort to destroy both the Campbells and the MacGregors for his own vicious reasons.

Annie isn’t the usual Scottish lass, though. She’s a healer with a gift so special that she’s known as a witch. The man she’s wed has earned the name Wolf because of his bloodthirsty, ruthless style of battle.

A witch and a wolf. The perfect marriage.

Two strong-willed people, willing to sacrifice for their clans, but furious that fate has forced them into marriage are now bound together.

Child of the Mist is a fun, compelling read. Kathleen Morgan has given us two headstrong people who have to learn to co-exist for their very survival. They battle each other, with the stubborn pride of the Scots, but also with a growing attraction for each other. But as they become a united pair, they have to face the evil that is behind the constant unrest between their two clans. – Mary Connealy, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1564, superstitions threaten a truce . . . a traitor plans his attack . . . and a new love is born.

An arranged betrothal was never the course Anne MacGregor imagined her life would take. Yet when her father explains that her cooperation is the only way to bring about the long-sought truce between feuding families, Anne has no other choice.

A simple ceremony pledging Anne's hand in marriage after one year of commitment is the only seal to the promise of peace. But when the arrangement requires the reluctant Anne to follow Niall Campbell back to his home, she soon discovers that peace is not so easily achieved. Before they even arrive, rumors about her abound, and her safety is threatened. Meanwhile, Niall's ascension as leader of his clan is in jeopardy, as a traitor works to bring about his downfall.

As Niall and Anne begin to see beyond each other's defenses, love takes them by surprise. But will it be enough to defeat their foes? Or will the truce be broken, their lives forfeit, and war return to their beloved land?
