Another of the seven MacKeage daughters meets her fate in Chapman's latest enchanting Highlander offering. Liberally spiced with mystery, this story has warmth and genuine love that make it the perfect antidote for stress.

Pregnant Megan MacKeage didn't plan on being a single parent, but when her lover Wayne deliberately drives her away during their biology field work in Canada, she doesn't have much choice. Or does she?

New police chief Jack Stone is on a mission -- to win back Megan and protect her from the danger he fears has followed them from Canada. With Megan's temper and her imposingly large family members, Jack (aka Wayne) has work to do. Megan is furious that Jack kept the news of a murder at the site from her, but the MacKeage family is about to learn that Druid magic is not the only kind that exists, for Jack has some secrets in his family tree as well.
