The Warrior's wager: A Celtic Romance Novel (Warriors of Eriu Book 2) Kindle Edition
Aislin Mac Cecht is not like other lassies. She prefers her bow, connecting with nature, and most importantly, her freedom. Marriage and children would only tie her down. No man could ever possibly accept her as she is, feral and stubborn to a fault, and she refuses to change for anyone, despite her family’s insistence that she settle down.
He would never dream of trying…
Alastar Mac Murray vowed to never get married. He much prefers to spend his nights with as many lassies as possible, living a life of ease and freedom, even if his easy smile and witty banter hide the painful shadows of his past. But when he first sees Aislin in her short hide dress, bow slung over her shoulder as she berates her brother, all his plans change. He will have Aislin Mac Cecht, and taming her is the last thing on his mind.
One reckless wager, the kiss of a lifetime, and an opportunity to secure the lass of his dreams has Alastar proposing a handfast to Aislin. She keeps her freedom and silences her family, and he wins the girl… for only one year and one day. She vows to leave when it’s over. He vows to keep her forever.
Can two people who value freedom over love find happiness in both?

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is lovemaking, within marriage, heat level maybe 4 out of 5. There is a nasty villain you are aware of early on. The h has spirit and think she knows what she wants. This story is loaded with misunderstandings, secrets (which I can't stand that last forever), as it does here. The H had plenty of time to tell the h about the wager and he didn't.
The emotions and actions of the h in dealing with what she witnessed was spot on. Her feelings were so raw that my heart ached for her.
This is not an easy stroll to romance in the least. But, feelings are finally shared and they start to rebuild trust and friendship.
No cheating in the sense of sex, but emotional cheating is what the h believes. No cliffhanger and some interesting character's. (ljb)
However, and this is the spoiler part:
I really had trouble with the idea that everyone but him knew she was pregnant, especially when he was the only one seeing her unclothed a d he'd been making love to her regularly. He would notice the lack of flow if nothing else being together that often. If her body changed enough for everyone else to know, he'd have felt if not seen the differences, even with them being gradual.

Alastar is a fierce warrior who uses witty banter and smiles to cover the pain of his past. Aislin is a hunter, has a fiery temper, and values freedom above all else - the freedom to be her true self. Their journey is full of clashes, laughs, mistakes, deception, twists, danger, passion, love, and a satisfying HEA.
The characters are well developed and likeable and the storyline is interesting but some parts dragged and there was a fair amount of editing errors that took me out of the story.
