"sweeping historical tale"

After Patrick Maclean leaves his ancestral home in Scotland, he is taken prisoner onboard a Spanish slave ship and endures excruciating conditions that prompt him to initiate a mutiny. The plot thickens, however, when he realizes Juliana Mendoza, the niece of the slave ship's owner, is onboard the ship and is traveling to meet her groom in an arranged marriage. Taking Juliana and her maid hostage, Patrick sets sail to Scotland, where he hopes to reclaim his inheritance.

Although Juliana is attracted to Patrick, she knows that her mother will suffer if Juliana's marriage does not take place. In addition, if her presence is discovered in Scotland, it could result in dire consequences for Patrick and his clan. Struggling against great odds, Patrick and Juliana risk everything to save their new love.

BELOVED WARRIOR concludes Potter's Scottish Highland trilogy. The sensitive reader should be cautioned that the first several chapters feature intense action scenes as the oarsmen violently kill their captors. Potter weaves in a great deal of back story, which somewhat diminishes the focus on Patrick and Juliana's romance.

Potter is a skilled writer however, and the avid romance reader will enjoy this sweeping historical tale. Potter has a knack for incorporating lush sensory details that carry the reader back to 16th century Spain and Scotland. The plot is complex but flows smoothly as each new detail is seamlessly integrated. Overall, historical romance fans will find a satisfying read in this final installment of Potter's trilogy.
