    Read this review on Got Fiction book blog4.5This was just what I needed tonight A Highlander, a sassy Sassenach, and a guaranteed happy ending.This novella starts out in London, where our heroine Lily is hightailing it out of town There s a witch hunt brewing, and as a healer, the last thing she needs is rumors to point them her direction.Taking what she can, she locks her shop, knowing it will probably be looted and destroyed if she ever makes it back, and she heads north to hopefully stay w Read this review on Got Fiction book blog4.5This was just what I needed tonight A Highlander, a sassy Sassenach, and a guaranteed happy ending.This novella starts out in London, where our heroine Lily is hightailing it out of town There s a witch hunt brewing, and as a healer, the last thing she needs is rumors to point them her direction.Taking what she can, she locks her shop, knowing it will probably be looted and destroyed if she ever makes it back, and she heads north to hopefully stay with a friend of hers.She stowed away on a ship and ended up too far north Scotland to be precise And wandering around the countryside in the winter wasn t her brightest idea.After being sent on an errand for his laird, Roderick MacDonald is happy to be heading back to the Highlands His grandmother, the clan healer and seer, had warned Roderick that he would be bringing back the clan s next healer on this trip, and since she was getting older, they really needed her And sure enough, he stumbles upon a very unconscious Lily, dressed as a lad I love that he figured her out right off the bat, and I love that he took her under his wing.He was traveling with Douglas men, and he wanted to protect her from them At the first chance he got, he convinced them to head home, and he talked Lily into coming home to live with his grandmother Lily told him she wanted to learn from a healer, and he assumed she had a vision of his grandmother.I liked this story a lot It has a feisty, stubborn heroine, a protective and thoughtful hero, and a lot of passion There s even an Easter Egg at the end the hidden inside references to other series kind of Easter Egg, not the actual eggs I see what you did there, Margaret Mallory So for anyone in the mood for a short and satisfying Highlander novella, this is the perfect story for you Review copy courtesy of the author

    This novella actsas a prequel to the series, rather then as an ending It takes place before the sear in the books was born and bridges all of Ms Mallory s series together I liked the characters and I wish the story was longer so we could seeof London and of the seat of the Lord of the Islands.

    This story was a bit slow and uneventful It could have been so muchbut wasn t really going anywhere for me.

    Good book Lily is a trained healer living in London when a bout of witch fever strikes the city Her instincts tell her that it would be a good idea to get out of town for awhile so she dresses as a boy and stows away on a northbound ship, intending to visit a friend Unfortunately, she is discovered and thrown off the ship near Edinburgh, far from where she intended to go She sets off on foot, unaware of just how unprepared she is.Roderick is on his way back home after a mission for his chief Good book Lily is a trained healer living in London when a bout of witch fever strikes the city Her instincts tell her that it would be a good idea to get out of town for awhile so she dresses as a boy and stows away on a northbound ship, intending to visit a friend Unfortunately, she is discovered and thrown off the ship near Edinburgh, far from where she intended to go She sets off on foot, unaware of just how unprepared she is.Roderick is on his way back home after a mission for his chief when he stumbles across Lily There s no way he can just leave her, so he takes her along with him Once he discovers that she s a healer, he wonders if she is the woman his grandmother predicted he would find Knowing that the clan is in need of a healer, he s determined to convince her to return with him.I loved the contrast between Lily and Roderick She is a city woman who has never been outside London She is determined to return and rebuild her business once the danger has passed Roderick is a highlander who finds cities too crowded and noisy for his tastes and prefers his home in the Highlands Neither expected the flare of attraction between them, but past hurts have them reluctant to trust each other.While Roderick succeeds in convincing Lily to come home, he hasn t told her the whole truth behind his invitation Discovering the truth adds to her stubborn determination to leave, but outside interference delays her departure Roderick s grandmother lends a hand in giving them a chance to get to know each other and learn to trust The ending was exciting and perfect for this couple

    This was a very short book, just a little over 100 pages It tells the story of Tearlag s parents, the old seer in this series I loved this series and this was a nice little ending Apparently it has ties to some of her other series as well but I haven t read them yet But I definitely intend to.

    This short novella popped up in several of my newsletters and I was looking for something seasonal to listen to I ve been in something of a reading listening slump and not even my old standbys have managed to fire my imagination I like a good Highlander as much as most romance readers and I ve enjoyed the books I ve read by Margaret Since this one was free with my Audible Escape subscription, I downloaded it The story is sweet, Roderick almost too good to be true in true Highland H This short novella popped up in several of my newsletters and I was looking for something seasonal to listen to I ve been in something of a reading listening slump and not even my old standbys have managed to fire my imagination I like a good Highlander as much as most romance readers and I ve enjoyed the books I ve read by Margaret Since this one was free with my Audible Escape subscription, I downloaded it The story is sweet, Roderick almost too good to be true in true Highland Hero fashion and Lily is spunky and independent almost too much so But without her attitude, there d be no story Misunderstandings are at the heart of this story but being a romance, we know there s a HEA at the end It was fun fodder for listening as I zipped about on errands and tasts that didn t require my full attention It s a standalone, so a reader can dive right in and enjoy
