Alec MacDara and his family, parents, three brothers and a sister, live on the land in which the theme park is located. It is Sadie’s job to convince the MacDara’s to let them use their land. Sadie begins emailing Highland Life and Legends daily to try to win them over. She believes she is emailing an assistant like herself and begins to really open up to the ‘assistant’ about life in LA and the quirks of her job and the people around her. But, in reality, she is emailing Alec. He pretty much falls in love with her through the daily emails.
Alec and his family are the protectors and keepers of the Heartstone and the weapons used to protect it. They were transported fifteen years earlier from Scotland to North Carolina by the three goddesses to whom they are responsible. The Heartstone and weapons are under the castle and mountain located on the property, too. The castle will one day be Alec and his wife’s home once his heart finds his wife. Alec begins to believe through the daily emails that Sadie might just be her. There is something about her in the emails that calls to him.
Delia and Sadie make a visit to the theme park to convince the MacDara family of the benefits to them to allow Delia’s film to be filmed on their land. Alec’s agreement is that Sadie must stay with his family throughout the filming and they must stay away from the castle and the parcel of land surrounding it. Sadie finally agrees to stay with the family, but does not quite trust Alec. Delia, also, agrees to stay away from that section of land.
Sadie and Alec’s connection is quick and strong. Alec becomes her protector against Delia and those who work with her. Sadie must convince him that she has and can take care of herself, especially where her ‘evil’ sister is concerned. Sadie wants to be a screenwriter and knows she must placate Delia in order to hope to one day be allowed to write. Ms. Greyson wrote Sadie as a caring, humorous heroine who is a bit curvaceous and overweight, not your typical tall, thin, athletic heroine and you like her all the more for it.
Not one to give away a story, you know Sadie gets her highlander in the end – it’s the getting there that makes for a good tale. You will find their romance to be quite sensual at times as Ms. Greyson is gifted in writing that way, especially as Sadie learns the benefits of true highland dress for females, as well as, for males in their kilts. Just picturing Alec in a kilt is mouth watering.
You, too, will love the secondary characters as Alec’s family are included. Each of the brothers is responsible for one of the weapons in connection with the Heartstone. We should get to see how as the series progresses. Esme, their fifteen year old sister, was born and raised in today’s time, not the Scotland of old from which they came. Reading about her growing up in the upcoming books of the series may be really entertaining as she is quite challenging and witty when frustrating her brothers.
This is a definite read as Maeve Greyson can weave a tale of historical Scotland ideals into modern day times beginning with a bit of time travel and folklore. Enjoy!
