Defying all for the love of a bewitching lass.
Breena MacRae, a healer from Skye with a touch of witchery in her blood, embarks on a dangerous search for her missing father. She arrives on the Isle of Coll, seat of the vile Campbells. There, she encounters the debonair future chief to the Dunbar Clan, Egan, who rescues her from a Campbell sentry.
Egan Dunbar is on Coll to keep the peace between the feuding Campbells and Dunbars. But when he catches Breena in a lie, he agrees to help her find her father to pay back an old debt and get to the bottom of the secrets she’s hiding.
As their attraction for each ignites like a firestorm, Breena and Egan realize a future together could trigger deadly consequences—a clan war between the Campbells and the Dunbars. Is Egan willing to betray his clan for love, even though he knows Breena is keeping secrets from him? Can Breena trust him with her family secret and put those she loves at risk?
Bewitching a Highlander is a delightful and romantic adventure set in perilous 1747 Scotland. Author Roma Cordon brings the reader back in time with authentic language and situations.
The protagonist, Breena, is a healer and a witch, a fact she must keep secret for her own safety. Despite the Witchcraft Act of 1735, fear and prejudice against witches remain. Breena’s magical powers are limited to rituals in which she asks questions and attempts to divine the answers.
On a dangerous mission with her uncle, Breena meets the handsome and well-built Highlander, Egan. He soon offers her his assistance. Their mutual attraction is powerful and immediate, but as she is a low-born healer and he a future laird, they both understand from the start that a marriage between them is out of the question.
The engaging and twisty plot held my attention throughout. I highly recommend this book to readers of historical romance!
