HEALING THE HIGHLANDER
Mayhue’s newest book in the Daughters of the Glen series is amazing! The highly emotional, quick-paced plot makes this a page-turner. Deeply moving characters, fraught with emotional turmoil, the subtle entwining of Faerie magic and a highly charged, ever-expanding romance turn this into a keeper.
Leah Noble Macquarrie, a contemporary woman, had previously fled to 14th-century Scotland. Once there she saved a boy’s life and the Faerie transported the boy to the present. Leah willingly stayed in the past, but after being tortured by a rogue Faerie, she vowed never to use her magic again. When her family’s lives are threatened she has no choice but to seek the magical MacKieran clan’s help.
Andrew MacAllister suffered physical and emotional wounds during the war and feels useless as a warrior. Then he rescues Leah from drowning and agrees to aid her. Although his Faerie magic can’t cure his scars he believes that helping Leah offers the promise of redemption. She has no idea he is a member of the MacKieran clan. But there is a powerful attraction between them. While endeavoring to save her family she uses her Faerie healing power to save lives and she and Andrew discover a powerful love as the surprising climax approaches.
