Gillian MacLeod is shy and quiet, the least likely of all her sisters to seek out excitement and adventure. But on a moonlit night at a masquerade ball, Gillian steals a kiss from a mysterious stranger, knowing she’ll never see him again.
John Erly, disowned by his noble English father, started a new life in Scotland. Most people are suspicious of the foreign mercenary and he does everything is his power to avoid romantic entanglements. But he can’t forget the bewitching beauty who kissed him in the dark, and stole his heart, even though he has no idea who she might be.
A year later, John is given the duty of escorting Gillian to her wedding and immediately recognizes her as the temptress he’s dreamed of for months. There’s not much he can do when she’s promised to another man, but fate intervenes and this time, passion—and adventure—can’t be denied. Honor demands he stay away from the MacLeod’s enchanting daughter, but love has a very different ending in mind…
Enchanted by the Highlander a new adult spin on Cinderella meets a Rogue.
Enchanted by the Highlander is a Historical Romance which takes place in Scotland, September 1712. It tells a story of a shy awkward young lady whose only wish was to have a nice adventure. With that one wish steps in our hero…English John.
John Erly wasn’t really what you would call a hero. There wasn’t really anything heroic about John. When we first see him, he is running late to meet the ship that his friend and employer were disembarking. John is what one would call a ladies’ man. He loves women he just doesn’t want to keep them for long. Until that day over looking the bluff, he sees Gillian being assisted onto land and everything for him changed.
I really enjoyed the story and the plot flowed seamlessly. I was so engrossed in the story before I knew it the story was over. The development of the characters chemistry was built upon during the course of the story that when the two-main character finally did get together it just felt natural, which made for a good story overall.
