Young, pregnant witch, Alainn McCreary, is forced to rely on her mysterious and unpredictable magical powers in an attempt to protect the life of her strong and courageous new husband, Killian O’Brien, and the life of their unborn child, battling against all odds waged by a powerful and corrupt chieftain, a vengeful curse, and malevolent dark forces unleashed by a scheming demon.
Set in mystically enchanting, but dark and dangerous 16th Century Ireland where fairies, witches, spirits, and demons dwell among humans, the Chieftain’s Daughter is an enticingly romantic and lustful tale of love, desire, danger, and adventure.

Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance
Published: September 20, 2016
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4 stars
Alainn and Killian’s historical and magical saga continues pretty much where we left of in The Witch’s Daughter. I have enjoyed my time in this series and with these characters. While Alainn’s magical abilities are still growing, and not always exactly as she intends there is no doubt that she is growing in confidence and strength. She is already a power to be reckoned with, and it will be interesting to see how far she goes over time. The love between Killian and Alainn can be felt flowing from the page. And the hatred from the villain(s) is scorching as well.
Without giving anything away, I hope, The Chieftain’s Daughter will deliver some twists and turns you may not have anticipated, as well as even more danger to our couple. Going this far back into history is always fascinating to me, and when you add in the magical, mystical elements then I’m hooked for the entire ride. In a story that never leaves much time to pause and get lost in the quiet moments, this is a romance that is full of human emotions, and magical touches that only add to the drama and the end results. However, this is not a series you can (or should) pick up midstream for each book’s information and actions flow into the next. Definitely a series of books that should be read in order. I had fun in this realm and if you love Historical, or Paranormal Romance, then you should feel right at home with this series.
