REVIEW

"A prophecy, evil villain all entwined with magic in this medieval romance!"

Connall, laird of the MacInness clan, made a vow to his mother on her deathbed that he would return Iona home. Not only is Iona his sister, but she is also a Druid priestess and was kidnapped. Even though Connall knows it was the MacNeil who took his sister, he can't prove it, so when he was invited to the MacNeil castle, Connall accepted, knowing it was probably a trap. See, the MacNeil is an evil man, always wanting more and not afraid to murder to get what he wants. So when MacNeill's men begin to attack, Connall isn't surprised. While his men engage the MacNeills, Connall takes off after their laird. Then he sees a beautiful woman and while he's distracted, the MacNeill escapes. When he finds out the woman is none other than his enemy's daughter Glenna, he decides to take her prisoner and use her to get his sister back. Connall also ends up taking someone else with him—a man who saved his life during the fighting—Gregor, a mercenary. But this is not the only vow Connall has made. The MacInness' made a pact with the Druids long ago and all the lairds have vowed to protect the Druids and keep them safe. When Iona first went missing, Connall went to the Druids to beg their help in finding his sister. None would help him, and since that time, Connall will have nothing to do with Druids.

When the handsome stranger approaches her, Glenna begs to go with him. After all, Iona—the only friend she's ever had— told her a dark stranger would take her away. Her whole life, Glenna has never known kindness or love from anyone— not her father, the clan—other than Iona. Not that things are any better at the MacInness castle, for Glenna can sense the hatred of Connall's clan. But Glenna can hear music calling her and when she tries to follow it, Connall forbids her to go. Finally, Glenna has enough of being meek and goes to the music, where she finds a stone circle, but that's not all she finds. She finds the Druids and she learns she is not a MacNeill at all, but a Sinclair and that she is indeed a Druid herself.

Will Connall allow Glenna to go to the Druids and learn—not only her past, but of the prophecy involving her? What of the attraction between Glenna and Connall? Will Connall ever accept Glenna for who she is? What of the MacNeill? Will he try to get Glenna back? Will Connall really trade Glenna for Iona?

HIGHLAND MIST, DRUIDS GLEN BOOK 1 weaves magic, a prophecy, and Druids into a wonderful medieval romance. Donna Grant does a great job of pulling us into the time period and locations involved. This is a heartwarming story of Glenna finally learning who and what she is and coming to terms with it. We also have Connall forced to deal with his feelings of all things Druid—including himself. And the MacNeill is a villain it's incredibly easy to hate. This is a fantastic story and one I find myself easily recommending.

SUMMARY

AN HONORABLE LAIRD...

Laird Connall MacInness was born to a clan that for centuries has been charged with the guarding of the sacred Druids. 'Tis a duty he has always met with a willing heart, until the day his sister, a Druid priestess, goes missing, and the very Druids he has protected refuse to help him find the last remaining member of his family. Then a 300 year old prophecy places a Druid priestess in his hands for safekeeping. 'Tis the chance at revenge that he's been waiting for, but is he willing to pay the cost his revenge will demand--the loss of his mate and the future of Scotland?

A WILLING LASS...

Glenna MacNeil wants only to be free, to find the purpose of her life. When she is told to look for the dark laird that would free her, she eagerly goes with the powerful laird who fights her clan, not realizing she has set in motion events that will change the course of history.
