Tugged at my heart while I enjoyed the action.

Highland Ruse: Mercenary Maidens - Book Two (The Mercenary Maidens Series) - Madeline Martin

This story had me smiling and crying. Kaid's story and that of his village and home almost broke my heart. Each time a part of the story was told, tears filled my eyes. Kaid had his vulnerabilities but found the inner strength to do what he must. Delilah's past led her on a warrior's path but never took away her heart. Her fierceness to do a job and softness for a child made me fall in love with her. The ups and downs of this story kept me reading until the end. Second in the series and I look forward to the next one.

This is my unsolicited review of a story that I received through Netgalley.
