A Highland Protector Novel

The Highland Protector series brings to life four mouthwatering Celtic brothers in twenty-first-century North Carolina—where the lasses are anything but tamed.

Highland warrior Alec MacDara and his brothers traveled forward in time to protect the sacred Heartstone. Their cover? Owners and operators of a theme park called Highland Life and Legends. As the chairman, Alec has been fending off requests to film at the breathtaking property. It’s only because of the charming correspondence from an enterprising production assistant that he agrees to a meeting at all. That’s when Alec meets a woman whose lush curves make him forget, for the first time, all about tenth-century Scotland.

A lowly assistant for her sister’s motion picture company, wannabe screenwriter Sadie Williams is shocked when Alec agrees to let them film at the park upon one condition: that she report to him daily. Sadie’s sister always told her that their parents only adopted her because they felt sorry for the ugly little stray. But Alec looks at Sadie like she’s the most tempting creature in the world. And with his gleaming, musclebound body stripped down to nothing but a hip-hugging kilt and boots, Alec clearly knows a little something about temptation.

Before even reading this book it had three pluses for me: Scottish hero, Goddess religion (Druids), and North Carolina (where I live). Yes, as you know I love Scottish guys (husband is an American Scot), I have always been interested in the matriarchal religions, and I spent many times on my phone looking for the Highlands Amusement park that the hero runs – because come on- that would be so cool!

While the involvement of the Goddess religion only offered a slender representation, the Scottish hero, Alec MacDara, did not disappoint. He falls for Sadie Williams before he even meets her from reading emails she has sent. In her emails, Sadie is trying to get her evil sister’s film company permission to film at the park run by the MacDara family. Sadie is described as being full figured, which I also liked as stick figure heroines are not really my thing.
The twist of the MacDara’s living in 21st century North Carolina is really fun. All the chivalry of the highlands without the bad plumbing and lack of hygiene (yes I do think of these things when reading, but mostly just really glad for my modern day conveniences).

Sadie and Alec are fun and complex. The supporting players are wonderfully detailed and keep the story moving along while providing humor and fun to the story. I even really enjoyed Sadie’s evil sister. Curl up by the fire as the weather turns chilly with this delightful story.
