Blurb:  

The sweeping historical romance that began with DECEPTION OF A HIGHLANDER, and continued with POSSESSION OF A HIGHLANDER, reaches its dazzling conclusion in this scorcher set on the Scottish plains.

Alec MacLean returns home after a decade to find his recently deceased father has let his inheritance fall to ruin. As the new laird, it’s Alec’s responsibility to rebuild the castle and restore the lands. He must also regain the people’s trust after having abandoned them so long ago, a feat not easily done when he fears he’s plagued with the same darkness as his father.

Celia escaped the North Berwick witch trials at a young age, surviving because of the sacrifice of her beloved caretaker. She’s made a life for herself in the wilds of Scotland where no laird rules, a life where she heals for coin, a life without love so she can never feel the hurt of loss again.

When the new laird comes back to claim his land, his determination to restore order threatens everything Celia has worked so hard to gain, especially with the undeniable attraction sizzling between them. Together, they will face all challenges, from the tangle of their own damaged pasts to the fire-fueled witch hunts sweeping the Isle of Mull. Together, they will find that the best way to overcome darkness and war is through the undeniable light of love.

Madeline's Behind the Tale Note: I confess I liked foxes before, but never so much as after having created the heroine’s fox, Ruadh, in my head. I hadn’t intended for her to have a fox when I began constructing the bones of Enchantment of a Highlander. As with all my characters, he just emerged in my head in those first few chapters.

In my mind, he was dog-like with just enough skittishness to make one want to draw him closer I an effort to have more of his wary trust. He’s also fiercely loyal despite that skittishness, which made him all the more endearing to my heart. I think he’s my favorite character in Enchantment of a Highlander and I’ve become a huge fox fan as a result. (Helen's note - And Ruadh was my favorite character also.)

Author Bio: Madeline Martin lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her two daughters (AKA OldestMinion and YoungestMinion).

Disclaimer: I received a copy of Enchantment of a Highlander as part of the TheRomanceReviews anniversary event. That did not make me read the book from cover to cover, the description, the historical setting, fine prose and strong, sensuous characters did.
