Rhona is known by many names, but the one that Lachlan MacGowan knows her by is “Hunter”. Rhona is one feisty, sassy, and determined young lady. She dresses as a man and acts like one almost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. She is also on a mission and she cannot trust anyone, not even Lachlan who follows her to pay back a debt that he owes her.

Lachlan MacGowen is known as the “Rogue Fox”. He is sly as a fox and just as good as tracking a trail. It doesn’t hurt that he is also handsome. He is determined to repay Hunter for saving his life. The only problem is that he is always arguing with Hunter. So he decides to sneak up on him, but the only problem is he caught unaware that Hunter is not really a he but a she. He is then set out to protect her from herself and everyone else.

There is a big misconception in the story between Rhona and Lachlan. And it is interesting to see how it unfolds. They are both attracted to each other; the sparks fly not only from their arguing but also from themselves just being around each other. Actually, this is somewhat comical at times. You have to read the story to know what I am talking about.

Rhona is on a mission and she will not let anyone get in her way, not even Lachlan. Even though he does try from time to time. How he stays with her is quite something to see and had me laughing a few times. His staying with her and following her helps her in her mission in some ways, but she does not know what until the very end. Not only do we get to see how it unfolds with Rhona and Lachlan but also with Rhona’s past.

This is the first book by Lois Greiman I have read in a while and the third in series. But it is a stand-alone book and I will be looking for the prior books in the series. I read The Warrior Bride pretty much in one sitting. She is always able to wrap me up with the characters and this was no exception.
