Book Description

He needs her for his clan. He wants her for himself. Can he have both?

Toran Lathan never expected to become Laird, and never expected to meet a woman like Aileanna Shaw. Her healing ability is just what his people need, but Toran cannot resist her beauty. Yet will loving him destroy her ability to heal?

Aileanna Shaw has a healing touch--and a special talent she must keep secret. Stolen from her home by a marauding army, she's kidnapped again by the Highland Laird she heals. Is she a prize of war, or the prize of his heart?

While Toran battles the invading lowland army, he also battles his desire for Aileanna. And Aileanna must decide if she can trust her secrets to this fierce warrior who needs her talent, but wants her love.

The Romance Reviews: 5 Stars, Top Pick!  
"Stealing a woman's heart has never been so dangerous...This story is action-packed and full of twists and turns that will keep readers on their toes. It is fast-paced and has a sweet romance that will warm your heart. Well written and full of imagination, this story is a must read for historical romance fans!"  Reviewed by Katie Cody

Satin Sheets Romance Review of "Highland Healer" by Willa Blair - Strong secondary characters, including a mentor, a maternal healer, and Toran's jealous former lover, Coira, and intense lines such as:'"What should I do with so beautiful, so valuable, a prize?" he murmured, almost to himself. His deep blue gaze ensnared Aileana as completely as his hands.' make this a rich, enjoyable read. Easily 4 satin pillows.  (Really liked it!  Will share with friends.)

From the Author

If you enjoy romance and adventure spiced up with a dash of psi talents, you'll love my books.

In my award-winning debut novel Highland Healer, the first in my Highland Talents series, I take you to the Scottish Highlands of the early 16th century, where the old ways (and old talents) can still be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting Debut Novel October 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It's the sixteenth century, a time of danger and turmoil. Against a canvas of conflict, Toran Lathan, laird of Clan Lathan, kidnaps a healer named Aileana Shaw, and everything changes for both of them. With no other options, Aileana's been serving a cruel master bent on conquering as much of the Scottish highlands as possible. Toran takes her to the Aerie, his clan's stronghold, where she must adjust to a completely new life. Although Aileana proves her worth to the clan as a healer, not everyone is prepared to welcome her with open arms. As she deals with jealousy and mistrust, she and Toran must come to terms with their growing attraction. Can the Laird of Clan Lathan pledge himself to a woman with her background, a woman who possesses a dangerous psychic power? And what will she do when old loyalties are pitted against new ones?

Highland Healer skillfully blends an exciting plot with the personal stories of Aileana and Toran, two very appealing characters. If you love an action-packed and sensual historical romance, you'll love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Highland Romance Like No Other October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Be prepared to sit for a while because you will not want to put down this book. I have always been a fan of Highland romances and this one ranks right up there among my favorites. Heroine, Aileana, is like no healer you have read before. Her unique and amazing powers put a refreshing spin on 16th century Scotland. She and her talents do not give the hero, Toran, a moment's peace, keeping the tension thick and the action moving. With a vibrant supporting cast and viciously evil villain, Blair keeps you entertained from page one and does not stop until The End.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revealing historical fun! October 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed a total getaway from the 21st century to the Highlands, history, castles and good romance on a fall day. Characters are strong and independent with just the right amount of lust and longing. Who can beat that! Well written with equally developed characters, I just loved it. Just the right story at the right time. I am so ready to take another trip! More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm high on Highland Healer!! October 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I admit that I rarely read historical romance but Willa Blair's Highland Healer has changed that. The saga of Toran, Laird of Clan Lathan and Aileana Shaw, against the background of the unsettling period following the tragedy of Flodden Field, is riveting, intriguing and downright addicting. Aileana's ability as a healer and Toran's need for one on both a personal and a clan leader's basis, along with their growing love for one another, is the basis for a book that will hold you from beginning to end. The characters are engaging, the sensuality smoldering, the tension the kind that plays heck with one's manicure. Brava, Willa Blair!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My first romance novel October 25, 2012
By ReaD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am an avid reader, but romance was never my genre of choice. Highland Healer is my first experience and an excellent one! It is well written, easy to visualize and just plain fun. I look forward to the next book in the series and applaud Willa Blair's prose!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Highland Tale November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm one of those readers that enjoys a rich Highland based historical romance now and then. And Highland Healer delivered. With vivid characters, authentic prose, and a dash of magic - the romance between Aileanna and Toran was both sensual and sincere. Another plus, there are plenty of interesting secondary characters. We can hope this won't be the only adventure on the highlands for Willa Blair.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Highland surprise November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The description sounded intriguing as I enjoy stories of the Highlands during this period. I was prepared to sit back and enjoy until I started reading about Aileana's Talent.

Let me preface this by saying I don't read books if the fiction is too far fetched or contains paranormal or completely unrealistic things. However, by the time I discovered this was not a 'typical' heroine, I was so taken in by the story, I continued. Am I glad I did.

This was a terrific story! The characters were very real, the setting was well described and I found myself reading far into the night to reach the end.

The interactions between the two main characters covered the whole gamut of emotions: humorous, fearful, angry, romantic. Their selflessness was endearing. I was shocked this was a first novel and will be looking for more from Ms. Blair.
