    Wow.This was such an adventure!So much stuff happened here.So much unnecessary stuff.There was a lot going on and yeah it definitely kept me entertained but after a while, it started to get tedious and I believe I could have done without, you know?I remember reading the first book in the series but mainly Goodreads remembers me reading it. :P Anyway, that was the only other book I'd read and finishing this I think I understand why I never bothered with the others. I've read Donna's other series so I know she's an awesome writer but this series just reads off... there was so much that didn't flow and the chemistry . . . The character chemistry was all over the place.I'm not talking about the romantic chemistry cause that's something I found really cute between Trey and Bliss but like Trey's chemistry with his brothers. For four closely knit guys all sharing and protecting the same secret, they didn't really come off all that close . . .If you're wondering why I picked this up knowing all that then it's cause I loved the blurb.(Also cause like I said Goodreads got a better memory than yours truly :p) I loved the idea of a freaky-fate-voodoo-marriage-of-convenience.Plus, I was lead to believe Trey agreed to marry a stranger.Here's a lil something for you to know, it ain't true!Granted they didn't know each other-know each other but for fuck's sake! She saved his life! (Mystical healing powers amongst others including foresight and mind reading.)The mind reading was the real cheese in the plot but hell I love Cheese! (The food variety) so I made do.But the foresight. *sigh*This is the part that required some heavy-handed editing. It's really a cool ability but she basically saw everything before it happened and kinda rendered everything else completely anti-climatic. There wasn't any surprise, nothing spontaneous, they had a solution to all their problems before even the problems realised they had somewhere to be.That got old. Fast.I did have fun reading this. Finished it in almost one sitting but I also realise, had I been in a book slump I might have given this 2 stars... So owing this to my good humour and the chemistry between Trey and Bliss, 3 stars it is. :)

    It's really tough to get a fix on how I feel about this book—in fact the whole series. On one hand, this is a pretty good adventure story. On the other hand, I think the whole series must have gone into print during a period when all of Avon Books's editorial staff was on strike, because these books are just chock full of strange errors and writing no-no's. I'll start with the good news. The heroine this round is Bliss, the Pictish healer we've met before in other books. She's also prescient (a bit too much so at times—more about that later). The story starts with her being accosted by King Kenneth's soldiers. Enter Trey, the fourth of the MacAlpin "brothers." (They were raised together, but are not brothers by blood.) Bliss claims he's her husband and he agrees, and the soldiers take off. But here's the rub: By claiming each other as husband and wife, according to Pictish law, they are in fact married. Bliss tells Trey this (along with the fact that they can divorce just as easily) and he takes it in stride. He reckons he can keep her safe if he's her husband, and he owes her for healing him from a near-fatal injury (earlier book). She's on her way to heal a woman known to her. He decides to accompany her. And they're off on an adventure—they keep getting sidetracked helping other people and spying on the army gathering to the north. Oh, and falling in love, which evidently means that they can read each other's minds. So we have whole conversations that kinda go:"Yeah, I want to make love too.""How'd you know I was thinking about making love?""I'm psychic, ya know.""Wow." He walked in silence for a moment, then scowled. "You don't have to be insulting.""Hey—I was thinking about your ass, not calling you an ass." Pause. "Wait—how'd you know?" "I must be psychic too."Both: "Wow." OK, not quite like that (not so silly), but yeah, a lot of mind-reading. Anyway, the adventure parts of the story—the whole story, all four segments—make for great reading. Now here's the not-so-good news:First, as I said, this book could have benefited from a strong editorial hand. For the first half of the book, they're trying to get to this friend Bliss is to heal, but time and again they get derailed as they come upon injured people needing healing or refugees who need help. Around about the third time it starts feeling repetitive. This could have been edited down and consolidated. And the prescience bit with Bliss sometimes sucks the tension out of scenes that would otherwise be good drama. When soldiers are closing in, the approaching danger is exciting, but then Bliss foresees that they're going to win the fight. Clunk. Also, there are long, long sections of exposition. You know, instead of, "Bliss's teeth clenched so tight she thought they might crack," we get, "Bliss felt very tense." Between that and a LOT of passive voice (P. 190: "She had graciously welcomed him when he had knocked on her door…"), the narrative occasionally lumbers. Then there are the really odd words and phrases. Like on P. 58, Bliss says, "My apologizes." Oh, and here's a doozy: P 218: "Both men stared at her and she knew their thoughts. Did they question her or accept the wisdom of her ways?" Um, well, you just told us she knew their thoughts, so why is she asking? How about this one: P 242: "You bravely escaped your captives." On P 278, Bliss "crumbled to the ground." I mean, it's all minor stuff (faired instead of fared, etc.), and you know what she means, but seriously, the publisher here is Avon Books. WTF? And then there's my other pet peeve—you know the one. Yeah, this is another historical that's not so historical. It's a sneaky sucker because Fletcher does weave the name MacAlpin into the story, and that's a name that goes with Pictish kings. So does King Kenneth. Unfortunately in this book King Kenneth's NOT pictish and he's NOT a MacAlpin, whereas the historical King Kenneth was both. Even so, I kept kind of thinking Trey was going to end up being the "True King" in the story, because, y'know, "Trey" isn't a real name. It just means he's the third. I kept figuring he was gonna turn out to have a REAL name like Drest or Domnall. I won't tell you who the "true king" turns out to be, because it really is a pretty good mystery (tho by the time they sort it all out the author has to rehash all the clues she planted along the way and that makes for a pretty expository scene). But let's just say there is no king listed in the history of Pictish Kings (that's assuming Wikipedia's info is good—maybe Donna has a better source) with that name or anything particularly close.So six of one, half dozen of another. I'm gonna give this three stars because really, despite the nit picks the adventure's a lot of fun, but it darned near got two. If I hadn't found some of the malapropisms amusing it probably would have.

    I enjoyed this, but it could have done without sooo many detours to get to the MacAlpin keep. It seemed like every time they took a step, someone showed up who needed Bliss's healing.

    I waited a long time to write my review for this book, after I think the book has been released. Donna Fletcher is an odd author for me. I've read all her books and genuinely enjoy them, but I would never put her on a list of authors who are excellent, who write quality fiction. I approach her books expecting a lot less from her than I do other authors in the same genre like Julia Quinn or Courtney Milan. Because I don't expect much, until now I have been sincerely entertained. Her Sinclaire series was fun, and until this last entry, I thought her Warrior King series was her best work. But the final entry, tpbhe last one for the series, leaves me cold inside and I wanted to stop, give the book some breathing room and reread.The problem with the book lies not with Ms. Fletcher's writing ability. It's fine, it's at the same level it's always been. It's the story itself. It's not good. It's neither well-thought nor well-paced. The two leads, Trey and Bliss, are married in the first few pages and instead of creating tension and suspense as how they will deal with their situation and get to the point of the book--which is the ending of the long journey to reveal the new king of Scotland. When do we find out who he is, how does it end?I hope other reader have a lot of patience. The true identity of the king and the final battle take place within a matter of pages. The entire book is Trey following Bliss around healing random people they find on their journey back to the keep. That's it. That's the entire book. Trey and Bliss decide pretty soon that this marriage is a good idea, there's no anticipation for Trey seeing ex-love, who betrayed him, because the reader knows ahead of a time these two are married and want to stay that way. And when that meeting does happen -- he's not torn between them. It's just understood how it will unfold. This book bored me senseless. Nothing about the leads or the story made me want to read to the end. I kept going because I wanted to know who the king was. If I'd known it would be revealed in the final pages, I would have skipped ahead. You lose nothing as a reader by skipping straight from about Chapter 5 to the end. Because nothing happens. It's a meandering journey with no point with two characters who provide nothing for me to care about. In a romance novel, I know they're going to end up together. I want to see the journey. I want to watch them fall in love. I was cheated of the experience in this novel. They were not only basically in love from the first day, but there was nothing for them even to battle. No outside conflict beyond Bliss's medical exertions. It's as if Ms. Fletcher couldn't figure out what to do with the characters once they reached the keep, so she kept throwing obstacles in their way. Frustrating on every level.Thanks to Avon and Edelweiss for the ARC. I'm only sorry it was a disappointing experience.

    I liked this book. I'm glad Bliss got her story. I haven't read much on the Pics so this was quite interesting with their magic and such. I liked and gave 4 stars.

    One of the 4 warriors series, this one is about Trey and Bliss. Also a good read and recommended.

    Bliss knew the prophesies. The one day Trey MacAlpin would be her husband. Trey can scarcely belive that has married this beautiful lass, however, it felt right. These are dangerous times. The passionate fire that rages in Trey's heart insists that Bliss in not just merely his bride, but his destiny as well as hers.

    Trey and Bliss. They met in the previous book when she came to help heal Trey who had been grievously wounded by soldiers. They meet again when she is facing soldiers meaning her harm and she claims her husband is near. Enter Trey. He plays along and quickly dispatches the soldiers. Throughout the story they allude to being husband and wife and according to Pict beliefs they are. But the background story of the true king coming to power from the previous books in the series is now closer to the front.So, what did I think? This is my second time reading and it has been a good series that once I started I had to continue through each brother all the way to the end. Believe it or not I had forgotten who was the true king so I enjoyed the ending same as before.The words between Trey and Bliss and their thoughts to themselves about their relationship tell a story of intense passion. What I don't understand is why I never "felt" the passion between them. I loved both characters, I think they belonged and fit together. But for some reason they came across as actors and I am lost as to why I feel this way.

    A riveting conclusion to the Warrior series as Trey, the last MacAlpin brother, finds his Bliss. The previous three entries found Trey mourning his lost love. But when fate calls...love will answer. Bliss, who readers have met before, is a PICT healer & a Seer. She follows the winds of fate which have led her to Trey, the man who will be her husband. But can Bliss heal Trey's heart? Or will a traitorous woman steal their future? The story kept my interest from the moment when Trey first walked out of those mists....until the surprise twist at the end when the true King is finally revealed. Although part of a series, this story works quite well as a stand alone book. Either way, it's a great read. A stunning climax to this entertaining series. I received this ARC courtesy of Edelweiss & the publisher in return for my honest opinion.

    While anticipating the romantic build-up between this couple (as its brought up again and again in the other three tales) I grew to appreciate these characters as individuals. The romance it cheesy but elegant, definitely mystical and done correctly.After three leisure books of suspense, build up and crazy situational timelines...the final plot-line wind up was too fast paced for a reader like me. In fact, the entire series is finished in one chapter. Which was a major letdown, because that woven storyline is what attracted me to buying the series in the first place. If only Fletcher would have spent a little more time easing the reader into the final chapter, I would have been satisfied. BUT, as a romance, I did find myself squealing in glee at the happy ending. And that was the high note.

    I’ve just finished reading “Wed a Highland Warrior” by Donna Fletcher and it was pretty good. This book is the fourth in the series of the MacAlpin brothers who fight for the true King. If you have read the earlier titles you know that three of the brothers have married for love and it looks like Trey’s turn is next. He lost his first love who died during a raid and can’t forgive himself for not being there to protect her. Trey has hardened his heart against love until one lady heals his lonely soul. The lovely lady is Bliss who is a Pict healer who had once nursed Trey when he was wounded in battle. She is also a Seer with abilities to see the future and knows who will be the King but will not say until the time is right. I won’t give away who is the King, so you will have to read and find out. I received a digital arc copy from edelweiss.com and have given an honest review.

    Fantastic ! Could not put the book down. This was the 4th and last book, in this incredable series, and what a ending. Trey and Bliss, a strange coming together and I did wonder, but the fates had decreed they were meant to be. As they spent time together their love grew, they became so connected. The love was so sensual and very romantic. Not forgetting I finally found out which of the 4 brothers was The True King of Scotland....Read their wonderfull stories let them take you on an adventure....I highly recommend it.

    I like how she wrapped up this series but I will reiterate what I wrote for the third book in this series. I like the characters in this series but I think her other series 'Sinclaire brothers' was better.pretty much the exact same plot as the first three books: man rescues woman in the wilderness, he protects her from harm, they find a derelict cabin and they return to the family keep and marry. I like the backstory of the brothers but the plot line for ALL four books in this series is exactly the same! I skimmed through this one.

    I finally finished the 4th book in the series and found out who the true king was. Trey, the brother who was almost killed in the 2nd book and healed by a Pict healer finds himself again in the presence of this healer. They handfast in the presence of soldiers so Trey can protect her. But they find they like being married to each other as they travel and have many little misadventures. In the end, the truth comes out about the true king. The great battle doesn't even take up a whole chapter. So ends this fun and light series of love stories in the highlands.

    Maybe if I'd read the previous books it would have been better. But this is a romance novel. I shouldn't need to read a whole series to just read one book. The writing was pretty clunky. The story was incredibly boring. The whole thing was just trying to get to one place, but getting interrupted by people needing help. And there wasn't really any romance or friction or anything between the main characters. But the thing that bothered me most was the word "plopped". Sexy women don't plop. You don't plop your sexy wife on the bed to romance her. Stop plopping. It's not romantic. Blech.

    Okay wow! I thought that Charlotte and Bryce's love story was great but Bliss and Trey!!! Holy Shit that was awesome. Of course I was all excited when the True King stepped froward and I had gotten it right all along. However, I was equally disappointed that there was not much of a battle scene at the end, but Bliss and Trey more than made up for it. This was such an awesome love story I am still swooning over it!!!

I was right about the McAlpine Bros mum though,, knew she knew far more than anyone guessed!Dare i say sometimes i felt the sex scenes were their just for the sake of it. The story itself moved along just fine, and a couple fo times i skipped it as was too impatient to find out what happens next!Woudlnt stop me recommending this series though!

I just felt that it was him and so glad that I found out that I was right ;)I would totally recommend the whole series for anyone interested in Highlander-beautifully-written heroes! I can't wait to start something new by Ms. Fletcher :)

    As usual, I just can’t seem to say no to a romantic read with “highlander” in the title, folks. This author proves why. She had me at Trey and Bliss, the main couple’s, “hello..again”. You see, apparently they met before under life and death circumstances in a previous book. Throw in the fact, I also enjoy a healer heroine who has the gift of sight, and I was all in to see them get their HEA.With that said, there are a few big .. “BUTS…” I need to explain. Keep in mind this was a very leisurely paced read with Trey and Bliss spending lots of time talking/holding hands/getting to know one another, mostly while journeying somewhere Bliss’s healing powers were needed that coincided with Trey’s task. I took no issue with that. I enjoy seeing a leading couple forming a meaningful, bonding relationship first. It was handled in a sweet, romantic way and was my favorite part of the story. Btw, until almost the halfway mark, to my surprise, despite their unique/strange set of circumstances that united them together, there were only passionate kisses/holding each other with back and forth flirty promises of more to come. However, very steamy scenes did eventually kick in later on in the storyline. Though there is chemistry and an immediate,skin tingling, fated emotional connection between them, you didn’t need the gift of sight to see the predictable OW drama lurking in the backdrop that was sure to send relationship angst headed their way. I for one grew weary of that person’s name being mentioned...over and over. It took Trey long enough to see that previous relationship in a different light, my romance book loving friends. But it didn’t stop him from having some knucklehead moments by listening to his family’s advice. “The King and I” business got old, as well. Sure, it is a huge premise of this series, but maybe because this is the first book I’ve read I wasn’t overly engaged in that aspect. I couldn’t keep the long list of subcharacters straight, (i.e., who was married to whom) either. Again, likely reading the previous books first would have helped me take more of an interest in them. Once Trey and Bliss arrived at their intended destination, I started to feel myself somewhat disconnected. Yes, it ends with a HEA but by far my favorite part was them getting to know one another. I can still picture them walking for miles and miles through the woods, hand in hand, sharing secretive smiles/glances, cuddling together at night to stay warm and falling for each other. Title: Wed to a Highland Warrior, Series: The Warrior King (Book 4), Author: Donna Fletcher, Pages: 384, stand-alone but part of a series, hero getting over a lost love he felt he let down, had met briefly before, slow paced but romantic, betrayal. Rating: 3.5 starsBook 1 - Bound to a WarriorBook 2 - Loved by a WarriorBook 3 - A Warrior’s PromiseBook 4 - The Warrior KingRomance Safety Gang: (view spoiler)[ OW was mentioned a lot. Brief references made to the fact Trey had been with some OW after losing her (but they were meaningless/brief encounters). Trey's family melded & had him questioning his relationship to Bliss. I don't think Bliss had been with anyone else. (hide spoiler)](These comments are based on a library edition. This is not a detailed ARC review).

    I loved their romance, the way the book started and ended. What I didn't like was the secrecy until the end and the way everything was revealed. Really? Even King Kenneth knew the truth before them. Not cool at all. I would have rathered them reveal bits and pieces to everyone here and there so the reader was surprised bit by bit. Not all at the end. And why was everyone so against them??? They all had love. Why couldn't they just be happy for him. But I loved their chemistry.

    While this book was good, and I LOVE Donna Fletcher's books (likely my favorite romance author), I was kind of disappointed with this for two really major issues. First, the main male Trey is so boring. Second, the last 4th of the book is RACING to shove so much into the last few chapters that it's confusing and you are left literally sitting there attempting to process it all.First off... yes, this book IS a part of a series and yes I have been following the whole thing, but as the final chapter it suddenly became a mad dash to tie up all the loose ends and answer all the questions the other books left open. This book is simply NOT a standalone book. You will not understand 50% of it unless you have read the other three books before it.Alright, so the "main" story is of Bliss and Trey. Bliss is a seer and really is the most interesting part of the book. She has so much potential as a character with her back-story and her abilities that more focus upon her and what she can do could really have spiced up the whole book and made it a winner. But it's not used as well as it could have been. Trey is......okay? I guess? Honestly, no. No he is bland and so lacking of any kind of personality traits that make him stand out it hurts my heart a little. Without Bliss always there, there is nothing pulls me in to like Trey. He is just sort of the left over brother. Did the other three get all the good traits and there was nothing left over for him? I think so. There is nothing that makes Trey special. Now... if this book was JUST about them, I think there could have been some potential to make way for an interesting enough love story between them. Play up Bliss's abilities, maybe find something interesting about Trey, but the tying up loose ends shows up and kills the party.While the other three Warrior King books were more about two people falling in love over time while on an adventurous journey with ups and downs and things that stood in the way they had to overcome while seeing that true king take his birth right, THIS book was more about just a journey to see the true king take his birthright. The falling in love was sort of just rush and written off as they were fated to fall in love. "Fate says we are going to fall in love? Great! Guess we are in love then! Now let's take a really long time wandering the woods on the way home and helping others out while we are walking." It's a bit... boring? The only thing interesting about it is Bliss herself and once again she is not used to her full potential as a character.And then when the book FINALLY reaches an interesting point in which the woman Trey once loved returns quite literally from the dead, you think FINALLY some conflict for Bliss and Trey's relationship they can overcome! And it's just... so underused and is over before it's even begun. If there is ONE thing that kills a book for me it's when the author introduce a side character that can REALLY make for a great bump in the plot road and cause chaos that has to be overcome to become stronger... and they are just totally overlooked! The WHOLE wrap up revealing the king and explaining all these things we didn't know in the other three books yet it was written like we SHOULD have known about them all shoved into like three pages is just, confusing! I READ the other three books and I still had to stop and look back and think about it all to make sense of it and read it again and I still didn't understand where half the stuff was coming from, UGH! I will not say who the king is but I will say it was who I guessed it to be over the course of the other three books. THAT made sense to me. THAT I got. There were hints for that all over the other three books. And it made it feel like I had played a great guessing game to get to it. BUT there was all this new never before spoken of things that just appeared out of nowhere with no hints of build up in the other books and are just presented to us and are to be accepted?! What? My head hurts!I love Donna Fletcher and it kills me to rate this book what I did but when you look at this book next to the rest of the series, it doesn't hold a candle to them. So much potential missed out upon in a book that suffered from needing to waste pages and plot to wrap up three other books as well as its self.
