When COLIN MACALISTER is cursed by the Faerie Queen and ends up in the bed of a twenty-first-century woman—who also happens to be the most beautiful creature he’s ever laid eyes on—he’s torn between anger and lust. Colin is determined to see Scotland free of English control and must return to the fourteenth century, yet he cannot forget the woman who haunts his dreams and stirs him with scorching desire.
ABIGAIL PORTER can’t believe her luck. After making a wish to find her soul mate, she wakes up to find a gorgeous man in her bed! Can he really be a medieval Highlander summoned by her Faerie Magic, however? It seems crazy, but when Abby discovers someone wants to enslave her because of her Faerie heritage, she agrees to flee with Colin to 1306 Scotland to avoid capture. Thwarting danger at every turn, Abby and Colin surrender to an irresistible passion. But is the magic of true love powerful enough to save them?
In her eighth Daughters of the Glen paranormal historical romance (after Healing the Highlander), Mayhue hurls her hunky 14th-century Scottish warrior Colin MacAlister again and again into the amatory breach, starting with his exceptionally naked appearance in the bed of tough-talking present-day archeologist Abigail Porter. Both descended from the Fae, Colin and Abby suffer from donnee, the "great wanting" that comes from being separated from one's soul mate. Together they travel back to the eve of Robert the Bruce's great battle at Methven, becoming closer as menacing Nuadian Fae Flynn O'Dannan poses as Abby's sponsor and lusts after her Fae-touched blood. Time after time, Mayhue brings Colin, Abby, and her readers tantalizingly close to emotional satisfaction until Abby, struggling to choose between hot tubs and drafty castles, finally realizes there are things "more important than toilet paper."
