Brenna Cameron travels from Scotland after losing someone she loves in search of family she didn’t know existed. Alone now in the world, Brenna makes an arduous journey, following the trail of discovery to Briarwood, Montana. Here she meets Ethan Gallagher, and the rest of the Gallagher clan. Only with their help is she able to discover lost family, heal old wounds, and embark on a treacherous confrontation with a man who destroyed her family.
As head of the Gallagher clan, Ethan has more than enough to occupy his thoughts and time he didn’t need the complication of Brenna Cameron and he certainly didn’t need the trouble that came with her. Ethan takes on the unwanted duty of self-appointed protector to the headstrong Scot, only to discover there is such a thing as second chances and more to life than revenge.
About The Author:
McClintock was born on the west coast, but after less than eight years she left with her family to the Rocky Mountains. After more adventures around the country, business college and culinary school, McClintock found a place to call home in Montana. McClintock currently has two published books. Gallagher’s Pride – book one of the Gallagher series and Alaina Claiborne – book one of the British Agent novels.
Ms.McClintock is superbly talented. From the start of Gallagher’s Pride, I was taken to another time and place; taken to the center of a story that steals your heart. Ms.McClintock chisels out characters that root themselves deep in your heart, where they’ll stay forever more. It’s rich in historic detail and keeps you captivated til the last page.
Brenna Cameron is a beautiful character. My heart went out to her so many times! She was born and raised in Scotland and loses her mother at a young age of 18. Not many years later, she looses her father, too. But, with the loss of her father comes a deeply buried secret……one that will forever change her life. Making a decision, Brenna packs her things and travels to Montana, the only place, she learns, that she has any family(albeit one that doesn’t claim her!) left. But, will she find the answers to the questions she has about this secret? Or will the prideful heart of a handsome rancher completely change her outcome on life….and her guarded heart?
Ethan Gallagher is one heck of a rancher! I adored every minute of his story and then some. Trying to run his family’s ranch, and finding ways to deal with the neighboring troublesome rancher next door, Nathan Hunter, he’s not ready for the beauty who literally falls into his hands in town. Nor is he ready for the fierce protectiveness he feels for her. He’s not ready for the feelings that she stirs in his heart, but none-the-less, he helps her with finding the secrets to her past…….and wants to help her with her future, too.
With a bit of suspense mixed in, these two amazing characters steal you away. They become your family for the time, and bringing with them amazing secondary characters. I did not want this story to end, but happily, I have book 2, Gallagher’s Hope to jump into. From rich historic detail to amazing sweet romance, this book has it all and then some. Another 5 Book worthy novel in my books!
