The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne

i'm hoping everything horrible in the first two chapters is just setting for the rest, b/c honestly i can't stomach a whole book of that.







the very brief context:

kilt-dude's father was a sadistic monster and part of making his sons into "men" involved beating and murdering a prostitute

leading-lady starts out in a mental asylum so bad that it gets raided by the police, fortunately before she's about to be raped by the doctor and an orderly.
