When Dorcas Corrothers swerves off the road to avoid hitting a creature during a sudden downpour, she changes the course of her life—the life flashing before her eyes while she hangs halfway down a ravine. Luckily, Angus MacQuirter was on that road in Nova Scotia and rescues her. But she sees more than a helping hand, she sees her prince.

So unfolds a beautiful, sexy love story in which Angus tries to convince Dorcas that he's the man of her dreams by using funny, underhanded devices, while she attempts to remove the damage of a past relationship from her memory. The secondary characters add their own brand of humor, affection and villainy to the tale.

The third installment of McClellan's Scottish Island novels features characters who exude an openness and warmth that will have readers eagerly awaiting the next novel. (Jan., 240 pp., $17.95)
