To her shock a wolf she names Alinor saves her life and escorts her to a haven a nearby cottage. --- Highland chieftain Conall MacKerrick grieves the deaths of his wife and child he beleievs his family curse killed them so he runs away from his clan to hide in his forest cottage. He is shocked to find an occupant and demands she leave immediately. Desperate to stay, Eve lies to him claiming she is Clan Buchanan considered the key element in breaking the MacKerrick curse. As they fall in love, Eve knows she must tell him the truth that she is not the right blood to end the curse. THE HIGHLANDER is a terrific eleventh century historical romance starring two seemingly opposites with a lot more in common than they realize at first look falling in love. The Evelyn is a dedicated person whose courage and strength fascinate Conall (and readers). However, he is the more interesting protagonist as he struggles with a curse that haunts him and his clan even as he wonders if she is the destined one to save them. Heather Grothaus provides a wonderfully exciting uplifting tale of love. --- Harriet Klausner

Evelyn Godewin returns to her homeland hoping to find a new beginning but she must find the courage to live through a very hard winter. While recovering from a fall she has the great pleasure to meet Conall MacKerrick who is running from his own troubles. He thinks his clan is cursed! When he meets Evelyn and she lies to him he thinks she will be the cure to the curse from many many years ago. The pledge themselves to each other but when the truth is learned about the lies they have told each other, they go seperate ways. Will Evelyn and Conan learn to trust each other to share the love they have. What about the babe she carries? Will than change things? I loved the third and final book in this series just like I did the first two. Each can stand on their own but if read them as a series you will not be disappointed. Be sure to get this one for you will put it on your shelf of keepers. Heather Grothaus is a very talented writer and I cannot wait for her next book.
