Rebellion's Fire Book 1: Last Flame of Alba by Mary Lancaster

Rebellion's Fire 
Book 1:  Last Flame of Alba
by Mary Lancaster

Book Blurb:

“The MacHeths are coming!”

By 1156, Malcolm MacHeth, one time Earl of Ross, languishes a prisoner in Roxburgh Castle while his rampaging sons raise rebellion in his name. Optimistically, the King of Scots promises the earldom of Ross to landless Norman knight, Sir William de Lanson, if he can somehow defeat the infamous MacHeths.

It wasn’t quite how William’s disgraced wife Christian dreamed of coming home. Capture by the strange and ferocious Adam MacHeth was hardly part of her plan either, although she and William quickly become pawns in his.

Adam, warrior and seer, fights for his father’s freedom and for his family’s right to claim the kingdom of the Scots. Plagued by waking dreams which threaten his sanity and his life, he’s learned to use his prophecies to further his family’s goals. But when he abducts his enemy’s lady, his dreams and his desires are suddenly more personal.

Surrounded by intrigue, ambition and betrayal, Christian must choose between loyalty and love in order to keep a fragile peace for her people and for the man she loves beyond life.

*Note: Rebellion's Fire was previously published as Rebel of Ross. This second edition contains new material for readers to enjoy.


I enjoyed this historical romance.  While there was plenty of violence and plunder, it wasn't the usual Highlander book.  Adam will be violent and ruthless when necessary, but truly cares about people, especially his people.  He will do anything to care for them, even when it places him in danger.  I was drawn onward in the book almost against my will.  The book ends happily, of course.  I don't read books that don't end happily.  I recommend this book to curl up with for an afternoon in front of the fire.
