Hamish Buchanan's birth was nothing if not surrounded by
fear and horror but he survived and lived to earn the
respect of the Scottish nation. Living with his mother's
family since birth, Hamish has grown up and only said
family and a few others know his secret. This secret though
is one of the reasons Hamish has yet to find the One he can
live his life with fully. Until he meets Grace
Grace Strachan didn't want to go to the party, and after
arriving late meets Hamish, only to be insulted. She leaves
but for some reason her mind won't let her put him out of
her head. There is something about him that calls to her.
Can she learn to trust Hamish not to hurt her and can
Hamish find a way to trust her? Or will he lose her forever?
Tilly Greene does a great job of telling Hamish's story
from before birth through to his journey of finding his
love. The reader is drawn into the story as they read the
horror of what happens to his mother right up to the fear
of his secret getting out, and his battle with himself to
keep it in check. Ms. Greene pulls the reader into
Highland Heat by showing the history of Scottish
lore. The reader will enjoy the story of Hamish and Grace
as they follow their love and learn that trust is the basis
that is needed for relationships to last.
On the surface Hamish has it all and because of the horror surrounding his birth, he possesses the respect of the entire Scottish nation. But underneath, where few are allowed, lurks a secret. Although well hidden, the furtiveness needed to keep others from discovering it also keeps him from committing fully to another.
One night he discovers a shocking secret about himself. Hamish doesn't put it all together until he sees Grace Strachan. Only then does he begin to understand what's going on. He's in heat and she is his mate. As his desire for her grows, he knows everything is on the line.
Establishing trust with another has never been easy, but Hamish must find a way or risk losing Grace forever. And that isn't an option.
