Series Saturday: Brotherhood/MacCallisters by Kinley MacGregor

One of my favorite historical series is Kinley MacGregor’s Brotherhood/MacCallister series. It has everything I want in a medieval story line. Intrigue, warring clans, headstrong women, baffled Alpha heroes. This series takes you all over medieval Europe and parts of the Crusades. If you haven’t read this series then you won’t want to miss out on this one and I suggest you pick it up. ~Heather

master of desireA Dream of Desire Awakened . . .

Beautiful Lady Emily dreams of the rapture of love and the joys of marriage. The youngest daughter of an English lord at war, she is shaken by the arrival of a mysterious stranger to her father’s castle. Could this breathtaking man be Emily’s yearned-for lover? Indeed, Draven de Montague, Earl of Ravenswood, has come for Emily . . . but romance has nothing to do with it.

In the Tender Embrace of an Enemy . . .

Draven would never have entered the home of his most hated adversary had not the King himself ordered him to take in his foe’s daughter for a year to forge bonds of peace between their two feuding houses. Worse still, here is a lass whose exquisite loveliness could tempt Draven to betray his sworn vow never to let anther close to his heart. Emily knows the searing heat of her passion could burn down the defenses of this proud warrior. But will the surrender of the sweet nectar of his lips and his bold, sensuous caress ignite a blaze so hot it consumes them both?

claiming the highlanderBORN TO BE HIS BRIDE?

It is said that Braden MacAllister, English baron and proud Highlander warrior, can fell an enemy with a single blow—and a woman with a single kiss. But not Maggie, it seems. For the fire-haired beauty, determined to end the long running feud that rages between their clan and its common foe, is immune to Braden’s attempts to stop her foolishness. But stop her he will, once he gets the meddling minx alone and favours her with a passionate caress and an irresistible kiss.

No matter how she trembles beneath Braden’s sensuous touch…he has given his heart to none. But dare she dream that by assuring peace for her clan she may also be claiming the most magnificent Highlander for herself.

Though Callie fears this feral knight less for the dark whispers that damn him than for the uncertainty in her that he evokes she is under order of the English King to marry him or see her clan destroyed. But bringing the devil into her clan is not only foolhardy, it’s dangerous.

 

taming the scotsmanTo avoid the dreadful fate of marriage to a man she does not love, Nora, niece of Eleanor of Aquitane, implores Ewan MacAllister, a man that both her father and betrothed fear, to help her seek protection with her aunt. Against his better judgement, Ewan agrees to whisk Nora away to England, fully intending to hand her off to his brother. Despite Ewan′s tortured past and Nora′s perilous situation, they soon find themselves helplessly drawn to each other.

where's my heroWhen Simon of Ravenswood secretly answered Lady Kenna’s letters in the name of a powerful earl, he was only being polite. Little did he know the lady would fall in love with the author and come between him, his best friend and a solemn vow made long ago, in Kinley MacGregor’s enchanting…Midsummer’s Knight.

 

 

 

a dark championFearless men, their allegiance is to one another, to the oppressed, and to the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Sword–and they must never surrender to the passionate yearnings of their noble hearts.

A Lady of Love

Beautiful, peace-loving Rowena knows that Stryder of Blackmoor is a warrior, and is therefore a man to be shunned.

But something burns in the eyes of this powerful knight that she has never seen in others of his kind: a tenderness, and a need to love and be loved. Yet to enter his world would be madness–against every principle by which she has lived her life–so she must resist the yearning that would draw her into his arms.

A Man of War

Duty bound to battle for right, Stryder has never desired the comforts of home and hearth–until he gazed upon the exquisite face and form of the incomparable Rowena. He dares not succumb to her sensuous charms, for Stryder is a man sworn to know no love. But when treachery and danger threaten, the noble knight must stand as the unsuspecting lady’s champion–though his actions could cost him his honor, his heart. . . and his forbidden dream of happiness.

return of the warriorFearless men, their allegiance is to each other, to the oppressed, and to the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Sword — and they must never surrender to the passionate yearnings of their noble hearts.

Fiercely devoted to her people and her land, Queen Adara refuses to let a power-mad usurper steal her crown. But the only way to protect what is hers is to seek out the man she married in childhood.

A proud, tormented warrior, Christian of Acre owes allegiance only to the mysterious Brotherhood — and has no wish to be king over anyone but himself. Now a bold and beautiful stranger has appeared in his rooms, tempting him with an irresistible seduction and demanding he accompany her back to their kingdoms … or, at the very least, provide her with an heir to her throne. Though he cannot abandon the brave regal lady to her enemies, Christian dares not give in to his traitorous body’s desires. Yet how can he deny the passion that is rightfully his and the ecstasy that awaits him in Adara’s kiss?

 

the warriorLochlan MacAllister was born to lead. Ruthlessly groomed to take control of his clan, he has given his life to his people. But when he learns that the brother he thought was dead might still be alive, he embarks on a quest to find the truth.

Catarina wants a life of freedom. But now Catarina’s royal father wants to use her as a pawn to ensure a treaty between conflicting lands. So much so that he’s willing to kidnap his daughter to force the issue. But when she escapes, fate throws her into the path of a man she loathes.

Lochlan is stunned to find the shrewish Cat being hauled away by unknown men. Unwilling to see even her suffer, he frees her only to learn that she has her own demons to fight. When their fates intertwine, two people who know nothing of trust must rely on each other, and two enemies who have vowed their eternal hatred must find common ground, or see their very lives shattered.

    I don’t read too many of the medieval stories, but with your recommendation, maybe I will try these. Thanks for the review. Showing the whole series in order is helpful, too!

    Sharlene….Johanna Lindsey and Julie Garwood set the bar really high for me when it comes to medievals and I can admit that other than those two these are the only other medieval books on my shelf. And you will love the MacCallister brothers.

      I think some of Teresa Medeiros’ books are medieval,too & I like her writing. I just picture that time as dark, dreary & dirty. I will definitely try the MacCallisters though. Thanks!
