Daring the Highlander by Laurin Wittig is a short, light Highlander romance. This is the second book in the series, ( which I was unaware of when I checked it out of the kindle library),copyrighted in 2005, and I will now go back and read the first one. This is the story of the Macleod Clan. Ailig has returned home alone after leaving with his four older brothers to find his runaway sister. The problem was that his sister was promised to another clan, but ran away and married another man. Ailig's older brother was in league with his sister's intended and conspired to kill the king. Now, Ailig has to return home and inform his father of these happenings and the king's commands.
Moriann, was widowed and still pretended to be in mourning. Her heart had been broken by her husband, and she was really sad when he died, but was no longer in mourning. She just wanted to be left alone to live her life in peace. She swore she would never marry again.
But, with the clan's sister gone from the castle she is asked to get the kitchen back in running order. This puts her in the castle and in contact with Ailig, who falls instantly in love with her.
Ailig is a warrior, but not over the top alpha male. Morainn is independent, but slowly learns to open her heart, even if there is great risk of getting hurt. A nice happy ending. Highly recommend
