    Wonderful, Romantic, A real page turner!

    If you love Scotland, Highlanders who are fierce, brave and tender, you will love this book. They protect those they love and live by a moral code. The adventures and antics in this story will have you laughing and crying as well as sighing with the romance. The author's attention to historical detail as well as her very detailed descriptions of the beautiful settings of Scotland which help transport you back in time and into the story. Her characters are very well developed as are her plots. Personally, I love when authors take the time to create separate stories for each of the main, and secondary characters so you are able to find out what happens to them as well. The characters feel like friends and you hate to see the book/series end. Very gifted author! I'd read as well as recommend any books she's written or is connected to. Be sure to check out the entire series if you want to read them in the correct order.

    The prologue starts out with Meghan and her grandminnie in the forest looking for herbs when she spies a face staring at her from behind a tree. She sneaks over and meets Alison and they plan to become friends and meet secretly to play. Everyone thinks Meghan's grandminnie is a witch and Alison fears her family won't let her play openly with Meghan.

    Piers de Montgomerie is base born from a King and a whore. He was very inquisitive growing up and was able to study with the Archbishop of Canterbury. He had a thirst for knowledge. They call him Lyon because of his prowess on a battlefield. Because of his skill at arms, he has received a parcel in the highlands for reward. He's finding his sheep dwindling. Although he is getting irritated he admires the Scots in the way they did battle and in the way they defended their clan to the death. He admires their loyalty.

    Meghan's parent's died when she was just a child and her grandminnie, Fia, raised her until her death when Meghan was 16. Everyone thought Fia mad and they thought Meghan mad too. She would rather be around her animals for company than to be around people. She never understands why men are muddle brained around her or why women dislike her without knowing her, but she was stunning. So beautiful.

    Lyon comes upon Meghan in the forest as she's walking a lamb and conversing with it. When she realizes that he's there and is going to take her, she tries to make them believe the stories that she's mad. She attempts to have them believe the lamb is her grandminnie, Fia. This chapter had me heehawing with laughter. Baldwin, Piers' friend, is hilarious with the banter and what Lyon has him do trying to appease Meghan. Meghan speaks her mind and Lyon loves that about her.

    Meghan's brothers come to take her home and Piers denies them and makes a deal that if after a set time, she wants to go home, he will let her. They are beside themselves with anger. She is so attracted to him but will deny it to the end. She thinks he only wants her for her looks. He has wanted her from the moment he set eyes on her. She makes him feel alive and nothing has brought that out in him for years. He knows it goes deeper than the surface. Lyon's soul feels lost.... empty.... and only Meghan can bring it peace. He needs her desperately, just as desperately as she needs him.

    Much laughter, a lot of soul searching, misunderstandings, heart break, and a love so deep and strong nothing will stand in it's way. All those things describe this story.
