The Chief (Highland Guard, #1)
The Chief by Monica McCarty

An Elite Fighting Force Unlike the World has ever seen .

Scouring the darkest corners of the Highlands and Western Isles, Robert the Bruce handpicks ten warriors to help him in his quest to free Scotland from English rule. They are the best of the best, chosen for their superior skills in each discipline of warfare. And to lead his secret Highland Guard, Bruce chooses the greatest warrior of all.
The ultimate Highland warlord and a swordsman without equal, Tor MacLeod has no intention of being drawn into Scotland’s war against the English. Dedicated to his clan, the fiercely independent chief answers to no one—especially not to his alluring new bride, bartered to him in a bid to secure his command of the deadliest fighting force the world has ever seen. The treacherous chit who made her way to Tor’s bed may have won his hand, but she will never claim his heart.
Although her husband’s reputation is as fierce as his manner, Christina Fraser believes that something softer hides beneath his brutal shell. But the only warmth she feels is in their bed, in glorious moments of white-hot desire that disappear with the dawn. When Christina’s reckless bid to win her husband’s love goes awry and thrusts them into danger on the eve of war, Tor will face his ultimate battle: to save his wife and to open his heart—before it’s too late.
My thoughts:

WOW! I think I am going to love this series. An elite group of men, who have been gathered together to Bruce to victory. Each one is chosen for their unique skill and together they are the greatest warriors of all. The first book is Tor and Christina, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it since their relationship was formed of trickery. I glad I continued on...

Great storyline/plot.
Characters are developed.
Steamy romance scenes.

Although there were a number of characters to keep track of, it didn't hinder me in understanding and keeping up.

Sorely missed, the Scottish brogue was missing from the dialogue.
