I love the Daughters of Glen series

ANDREW MACALISTER longs for a cure to free him from the excruciating pain caused by an old wound, but when he rescues a drowning woman, he has no idea how much his life is about to change. All Drew knows is that this mysterious woman is hiding secrets—and that he’s never felt such a consuming desire before. Yet he cannot deny her request for help, even if it means bringing the detested English army to his Highland clan’s home. LEAH NOBLE MCQUARRIE still harbors a deep hatred of the Fae who tortured her eleven years ago, forcing her to escape back in time to the thirteenth century. A descendant of the Fae, Leah denies her heritage and her magical healing abilities. But the English army is holding her beloved adoptive grandfather captive, so Leah must seek help from the Fae—and the captivating man whose touch she craves.

Then Drew discovers Leah’s secrets, and he’s torn between old loyalties and trusting a woman who has the power to give him the future he’s sought—but could destroy his clan forever. . . .

I know, I know. I skipped two in the series, but I was in the mood of a Highlander historical novel and I really wanted to see what these boys were up to. And, of course, Melissa Mayhue hasn’t failed me yet. I loved coming back to these characters and catching up. And then, there is Andrew and/or Drew. I really really like him hehehehe. He holds a lot of the same traits that other members of his family holds including their need to protect women and believing they are just not good enough. Oh, but Drew is. and Leah is different as well, she has gifts from the Fae as well, but hates them, and, of course, Drew needs some healing of multiple kinds. Being brought back to the Macalister keep and the world of the Fae I was sucked back into the romance that I’ve loved from the first book. There was some focus on the Fae and their gifts, but more on Drew, Leah, and the world that they are in. And I loved that. 

Drew—I really liked him. He doesn’t let anything hold him back. Well except for loving

Leah—She’s fiesty

I’m not sure. I really enjoyed it and the character, but maybe a little bit more romance would be cool. Otherwise I have no arguments

Overall, I love this series! I love me some highlanders and Melissa Mayhue knows how to deliver. It was easy to follow and filled with humour, adventure, romance, and some great characters.
