Sacred Places: An Immortal Highlander Novella
Sometimes fated love requires...some good old-fashioned magikal meddling.
Coyle O'Caha, a 700-year-old immortal druidsorcerer, is a famed warrior among his kind and a legendary ladies' man - but that doesn't mean he hasn't spent his life looking for his soulmate. That one woman who will make him feel whole. When Deri walks into his seaside pub, clearly running from something or someone, it's all he can do to not sweep her off her feet and claim her right then and there. It's as if the goddess is mocking him. Not only is his mate immune to his charms and his magik, she's human.
Deri Sullivan's new boss has a Scottish lilt that makes her knees weak. The problem is he's a certified ladies' man. And she's sworn off those types - for good. If only she could stop dreaming about him in ways that would make any girl blush. See, she has a secret, and even if she wanted to let Coyle into her bed, she couldn't actually let him into her life. Witches and humans simply don't mix.
Very nice romance
Me. Roth’s typical story very good but short. My happy ending as always! No reality for me. This is where I get my feel good paranormal love! Go Mandy!
So the story line for a short novel was good. However, having a narrator read from the more steamy parts of the novel had me dying in laughter; by far the funniest thing I have experienced in two years.
My grandma let me borrow this book and…huh?
The story had so much potential so I was amazed when the author skipped from the female lead being in trouble from dark magic workers to her having sex with a guy one time, after which he asks her to marry him (marriage after sex ONCE? Why?).
Then we skip from his proposal to her having a 1 year old and 3 months preggers with the next one and being pardoned by the council who banished her in the first place—all with no explanations.
And then after all that skipping it was all summed up in a matter of seconds by simply saying “according to grandma you’re immortal“.
