    A warm Yuletide romantic tale

    Following a brutal assault in Atlanta poor Mrs. Eric Dixon relocates to Pine Creek, Maine because the population of 800 allows her baby steps to heal mentally from the trauma. Using her maiden name of Jessie Pringle, her service dog Toby and her friend Merissa Blake stop at Pete's Bar and Grill where they meet Duncan MacKeage and his nephew Ian.

    Duncan dances with Merissa who will return home to Atlanta in a week. Ian does likewise with Jessie who plans to buy a house in Pine Creek. Ian and Jessie fall in love, but she remains hesitant still struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder while he stays patient with her waiting for the right time to bend down on one knee. While limping in the woods near the lake, an elderly man gives Jessie a cane that he insists will help her heal.

    Fans of the Pine Creek Highlander romances (see A Highlander Christmas) will appreciate this warm Yuletide tale of a strong man giving the woman he loves the time to heal. Although the story line never digs that deep into the roadblocks to the lead couple's relationships caused by her PTSD and physical scars of the attack, readers will enjoy a stop with the magical MacKeage of Maine.

    A hot winter read with an interesting female lead and a spunky dog

    Complex Females. Jessie was messy. Not only was she recovering from a failed marriage and devastating loss of a child. She lost both the unborn child and (soon to be ex) husband when an unknown assailant attacked them in their home. Leaving Jessie riddled with traumatic flashbacks, disfiguring scars, and leg issues.

    Now, before you go thinking “This is too much for me” or “I don’t like my romance heroines so tragic” Know that such events only lead to Jessie’s character seeming more spunky, funny, down-to-earth, and vulnerable. She seemed real. And this accessibility was because of her soap-opera like past rather than in-spite of it.

    The Dog. Loved the dog in this book. Toby was as much of a main character in this book as his human counterparts. I don’t know if it was Ian’s innate connection with animals…or all of the various expressions Chapman gave Toby. But when Jessie starts talking to her dog like a person and he begins to respond (doggie style, no talking animals up in here)…You won’t think it’s weird at all. Mind you he doesn’t speak, but as a service dog trained to protect and comfort his owner a correctly placed tail wag can speak volumes. Bringing him into the story not only added a ‘cute’ factor but depth as well.

    Hot Scottish Men. Let’s just repeat that statement. Hot, Scottish, Men. When you hit the scene where half the clan is splashing around a pool…the first time in a very long time I wished I could hop into the book. All those abs…

    The premise of this series is that warriors from 18th century (or so) Scotland are tossed forward in time to find the women they are to love. Granted Ian isn’t an original clansman…instead a first generation child. The clan mentality with all its protective instincts and hearty family ethics are very much present in the tale. It’s like reading a historical romance with modern amenities. Very, very fun.

    My only caveat with this tale was that we didn’t delve into Ian’s issues (war, being the prodigal son) as much as I’d have liked. I’m not sure if there was more prepping in earlier books(?) but reading this as a standalone I felt as though I was constantly being reminded of Ian’s issues without really seeing evidence of them.

    Magic. So color me shocked when real magic began to happen in this book. Lead by Roger (the original Laird of the clan) the paranormal aspects were slowly seeped into the novel. Again, I think because I was so late to the game with this series I was really able to appreciate how well Jessie was integrated into the magical elements. I was new to them too and felt fully prepared when the big magic hit. I loved that. So many times in a series the reader was fully inundated into the world so you miss how choppy or quickly new characters are hit with the world. So I was so happy to see how smooth it all was. And how much I loved the character of Roger. You gotta read this to see him…I enjoyed him so much!

    In the end this wasn’t the most “Christmas-y” of reads. True, it happened over the holiday. But could easily be read as a juicy winter read. Don’t be put off from the title simply because you didn’t have time this season…Or if you’re new like me, use the year to catch up and enjoy Jessie, Ian, and Toby next year. If you can wait that long!

    I Loved this book!

    This book was a pure joy to read...Mrs. Chapman has a way of transporting you to a magical place where love and romance live in the form of strong, hot, sexy highlander men who know how to treat a woman. If you like highlander books then you will absolutely love this series.
