It is my pleasure to welcome Ceci Giltenan to the blog today. I’m sharing an excerpt from Highland Redemption (Book 1 in the Duncurra Legacy series)
Tomas’s life changed forever when at the age of seven he was adopted by Laird and Lady Maclan ending the abuse he’d suffered at Ambrose Ruthven’s hand. He’d never looked back and never intended to
But fate had other plans…
Now, nineteen years later, he runs headlong into his past. The Ruthvens are in trouble and Tomas is in a position to help them. But can he set aside his hatred for Laird Ruthven for the good of the clan into which he was born?
Fate always adds a twist…
Laird Ruthven’s daughter is not what Tomas expected. Vida Ruthven is sweet, smart, and utterly irresistible.
Now, Tomas must choose between being the savior or taking the ultimate revenge.
They played in silence for a few minutes. He realized she was only three moves from checkmate and he had no way of preventing it. Then, to his surprise, she made a move that killed her chance at checkmate and created an opening for him to win. He’d seen enough of her skill so far to know she’d thrown the game intentionally.
He frowned at her, irritated. “Don’t do that.”
“What?” Her tone was innocent, but her eyes told a different story.
“Put that piece back and make the move ye’d intended to make.”
