Keely is known throughout the Highlands as the witch woman. While it does upset her how she knows she will never fit in amidst the local villagers, she can not ignore what and who she is. As a gifted healer who dreams the future, she resigns herself to the fact that her life will continue as it has in the past; solitude will provide her with peace. Now that the Scottish King is seeking to bring Keely to trial as a witch, she knows that she must retreat even further into her world for her safety.All of this comes crashing down when she stumbles across a battered man who is teetering between life and death. Nursing him back to health, she tries to help him regain his memory as he becomes stronger. Acutely aware of how she feels around him, she is disturbed by how her body and soul yearn for his presence. Ian MacPherson is the epiphany of a noble man as he puts honor, loyalty and duty above all other things. As their lives slowly become more and more entwined, and Ian pledges to keep her safe from harm, they realize that destiny has put them together for a reason. Ms.Young has definitely done it again with her second book of the 'Highland Trilogy'. Her first book, Highland Honor, introduced us to the powerful MacPherson clan. This book continues the non-stop drama which leaves you on the edge of your seat as you follow Keely and Ian along on their adventures. Filled with romantic anticipation, this love story will leave you very entertained.
