About the Book: His heart was made of ice...
Born a nameless bastard into the Berserker horde, Finn is the measure of strength, ferocity, and brutality at the Temple of Freya. Sent to the Highlands bent on revenge and murder, he stumbles on an infant deserted in the snow. What he chooses next may seal his fate.

Her life was cold and empty...
Rhona McEwan has lost everything. Her husband, her child, and soon she fears she must relinquish her dignity in order to survive the bitter Highland winter. When the most fearsome, mysterious, and breathtaking man seeks the help she can give to the child in his arms, she's unable to turn them away. Even though she's not certain he's entirely human.

Three of the world's Unwanted...
On a snowy Solstice night during the magical Yuletide season, their need for each other may alter their destines forever.

In the third installment of the best-selling Highland Historical Series, Kerrigan Byrne weaves a tale of blood and vengeance, of love, redemption, and the bonds that make a family.

My Review:

Again, this was another great book in the series. I chose to read this book as I have read books one and two in this series and thoroughly enjoyed them. Check out my reviews for Unspoken and Unwilling. At this point, I am hooked and eagerly anticipate the next release. I love how the author has created such large creatures of men or at times can be considered beasts, but when they find their mate are just big teddy bears.

I instantly fell in love with Finn as he arrived at Rhona’s with the little infant. I loved that even though he was “on a mission” he took the time to rescue the infant who had been left in the snow and found someone that could care for the infant. I also liked the character of Rhona. While a little bit vulnerable or appearing to be, she was tough and protective of what she had and what she was and in turn showing her little bit of independence.

These books can be read as a stand alone, but to understand the Berserker element they should be read in order. Now having finished book three, I am really intrigued with the paranormal element of the Berserker. I can’t wait to learn more in the future.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance, especially with Highlander and Celtic heritage.
