Highland Conquest by Heather McCollum
Series: Sons of Sinclair #1
Genres: Historical Romance
Cain Sinclair has a plan. In order to finally bring peace to his clan, he will wed the young female chief of their greatest enemy. Only problem: capturing her and forcing her back to Sinclair castle doesn’t exactly make her want to say yes. Ella Sutherland may be clever, passionate, and shockingly beautiful, but what she isn’t is willing.
Every attempt Cain makes to woo her seems to backfire on him. A gift? The kitten practically claws his eyes out. A competitive game of chess? Even when he wins, he loses. It seems the only time the two ever see eye to eye is when they’re heating up Cain’s bed. Still, the only thing Ella truly wants is the one thing he cannot offer her: freedom.
But when Cain discovers she’s been harboring a secret—one that could threaten both clans’ very existence—he’ll have to decide between peace for the Sinclairs or the woman who’s captured his heart.

This is the first book in a new series by Heather McCollum who is also a new author to me. The story was well written and I love the way it begins. Cain and Ella have known each other since they were children. Now as adults a war has began between two clans and Cain has become Laird. He knows that by taking Ella has his bride he can bring peace and balance between the clans. The true battle takes place between Cain and Ella though. As they battle for their own futures (each has very different ideas and plans) do they begin to find desire and love.
