Scottish filmmaker Ian MacKenzie has chosen to make a documentary about the Stewart family's Highland games festival, which takes place at their resort in the Great Smoky Mountains. Everyone but Lily Stewart thinks the added publicity will be a lifesaver. Why would an Oscar-winning director choose their festival as a film topic?

Ian is there at the request of his maternal grandfather, Duncan MacDougall. Duncan wants Ian to steal back the legendary Brooch of Lorn, said to have belonged to Robert the Bruce. For centuries the MacDougalls and the Stewarts have claimed ownership of the brooch by stealing it from one another. Duncan believes Lily stole it when she was in Europe.

Ian's reputation for being dark, sexy and moody proves true, and despite her misgivings, Lily finds herself highly attracted to him. Dare she take a chance on a Highland fling?

OUT OF THE MIST kicks off a brand-new trilogy from the amazing Ross that features the lives and loves of the indomitable Stewart sisters. (Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
