Two years ago, storyteller Elspeth Marshall spent a magical afternoon with a handsome stranger. Roy enthralled her with the legend of a mystical sword—almost as much as with his kiss. When she encounters him at a Highland inn, she hears the sword may be real...and that his name isn’t Roy. She determines to find the blade as well as the truth about the enigmatic man she hasn’t been able to forget.
Wounded at Culloden, Tavish Crawford lost his family legacy, a centuries-old sword on the battlefield. Now many people would like to find it, including a villainous secret society and the captivating woman who has remained in his memory. When nefarious forces overtake the inn, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the sword and the woman who has stolen his heart.
Previously published in the anthology A Very Highland Holiday.
Storyteller and collector of stories, Elspeth Marshall learns of a mythical sword from a handsome stranger but hears no more about it until a couple of years later when staying in a tavern. Not only are stories being told about a flaming sword at Culloden but the handsome stranger, who had promised to return to her over 2 years before, is also there and showing no signs of ever having kissed her. Elspeth is not going to stand for that! A cute short story.
