Highland Conquest: The Sons of Sinclair, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Bride by Julie Garwood meets To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning in this new Highlander series from award-winning author Heather McCollum.
Clever and bold, Ella Sutherland has won the right to call herself chief of her clan and struggles to hold onto the chiefdom against those who doubt a woman’s rule. When she’s captured by the darkly handsome Sinclair chief, she chooses death over wedding him and giving up her clan to their long-time enemy. For she has a secret, an oath she took years ago to protect and keep the clan seat for a great ruler to come.
Cain refuses to let his brother, Death, honor Ella’s choice with an execution. He’s never before met a woman so brave and passionate. Everything about her, from the scars she hides on her face to the way she can ride a horse while standing on the saddle, intrigues him. Despite their growing attraction, she continues to resist his plans to unite and conquer. When enemies within the Sutherland clan threaten the oath Ella made, she escapes the Sinclairs and Cain to defend it.
Hurt by her desertion, Cain rallies his armies to take revenge, defeating the Sutherlands once and for all. But the wise words of his grandmother and the pressure growing in his heart make him question everything he’s been raised to believe. Can victory possibly come from surrender?

The brothers are heavy duty Alphas. Every single one. I love their banter, their advice on how to woo a woman but most importantly how much they love and respect each other. I could write so much more but would just spoil the journey. This is a thrilling read. I lost quite a bit of sleep having to finish it. It even took me longer to gather my thoughts to write the review. This book was just awesome!! I can't wait for book two. Although my favorite is Bas who is the youngest. SO I have to wait for book 4!! ugh!
It seems I am reading more and more highland set stories and I am beginning to like visiting time period outside my usual regency/Victorian area.
Mrs Heather McCollum is a new-author to me, and I confess I judged a bit a book by its cover, and this one is not one which made me stop by to read the blurb, but anyway, I read it when this book was listed on Netgalley, and I found the plot intriguing. And even if I took time to find a day to read it, I am glad I didn’t let pass this one.
“Conquest is about taking. Love is all about giving.”
Ella is no frail woman, she knows her weakness but also her strength, and it is her secret oath that leads her, in its she draws her force.
Still the more she gets to know Cain, the more she fails to see in him the monster she was thought him to be. Sure he can be ruthless but also in his own way, he has shown her he cared and was able of attention. But can she trust him with her secret, when she swore on her mother’s death bed to protect it with her life.
Cain was raising by a driven man, a man with the crazed idea he had sired the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Win and conquer have always been his motto, so when he captures the woman behind his father’s demise, she is his, his to decide her fate. And while he decides to woo her, he struggles to find the right line between his duty as a chief and his new feelings for this strong lass.
While the first part of the story was fun and enjoyable as I watched them trading quips and bards, Ella leading Cain to a merry chase. Even if it was entertaining, I longed for a bit more, hopefully more actions took part in the second half of the book.
As a first in a series, this book sets the place, the many characters with Cain and his siblings as each will get its own story. It is a mix of funny scenes, others more sweet or angsty, with actions, betrayal and hurt.
I enjoyed my foray in Mrs Heather McCollum’s world and will happily follow all the Sinclair’s siblings.
I was granted an advance copy by the publisher Entangled, here is my true and unbiased opinion.
