Michael MacBain is a most unusual man. Born in 12th century Scotland, Michael and his men had been battling their enemies, the MacKeages, in the year 1200 when a wizard zapped them all into the modern world. Twelve years later, his fellow clansmen are dead, and Michael has moved to Maine and made peace with the MacKeages. Having already loved and lost two women, Michael is content to tend his Christmas tree farm and raise his son, Robbie. Young Robbie, however, has other plans. Determined to find a wife for his father (and a new mother for himself), Robbie decides to lease the house he inherited from his mother. Putting an ad up on the Internet, Robbie picks Libby Hart to be his tenant.
Dr. Elizabeth Hart has to hide and hide fast. A trauma surgeon with a fast track career in Los Angeles, Elizabeth has just cured two patients with nothing more than a touch. Apparently, all those stories she heard as a child from her Grammy Bea about specially gifted women in their family was true. Unfortunately, Elizabeth knows that if the truth comes out her life will become a nightmare. Needing time and distance to sort out her life, Elizabeth changes her name to Libby and heads for Pine Creek, Maine and a new career as a glass jewelry designer.
Coming to Maine feels like coming home to Libby, and she's instantly smitten with her new home and her young landlord, Robbie MacBain. But it is Robbie's incredibly infuriating, totally overwhelming, and absolutely gorgeous father who really rocks Libby's boat, and the feeling is mutual. Deciding to approach their libido in a rational fashion, Michael and Libby decide to have a no-strings-attached affair. Soon, that's not enough for either, but will their affair of the heart survive when secrets are revealed?
WEDDING THE HIGHLANDER takes readers back to the lives of Janet Chapman's time traveling Scotsmen, and the result is sheer magic. With her loving attention to detail, Ms. Chapman brings Pine Creek and its denizens to life. The soul of this tale, however, is the relationship that blossoms between the hero and heroine. Surrounded by otherworldly elements, Libby and Michael are simply a man and a woman destined to be together, and some of their scenes together will leave readers starry-eyed.
While this is the third book in the series, this story can stand on its own, and once a reader becomes caught up in the daily lives of the MacKeages, MacBains, and the ever-present wizard, Daar, it's a sure bet that reader will want to read the other books in this series !
