Caden Mcbain is a fierce and loyal laird who tries desperately to save his clan from starvation and is willing to go to any lengths to succeed just that. Meg Boswell is a healer with supernatural abilities. She escaped her father and tries to find her aunt’s clan in the Highlands. As luck would have it, Meg’s and Caden’s ways cross and the Highlander offers Meg to take her to her aunt’s clan. But does he tell the truth and why exactly wants he to help her?
This was a very nice historical romance that included Highlanders and their feuds as well as their war with the English crown and a really bad villain.
Although I’m not a big fan of supernatural elements in the books I chose, I have to admit that this one wasn’t too extreme about this aspect. I definitely liked Caden’s way of thinking when he tried to explain Meg’s abilities as a “tool” that could be used or misused, hence bringing positive or negative “results”. Generally speaking, there were some viewpoints that could have been developed further but weren’t. One such aspect was definitely the issue of Meg and Rachel’s diversity and how people involved handled it. The author chose to propose that strength of character and love would solve all the issues. There’s nothing wrong with that but this “easy way out” didn’t tap the book’s full potential. Anyway, that’s just me being mean…………………….
In any case, this was a pleasurable Highland romance that will offer you many hours of reading pleasure.
