Mayhue's seventh Daughters of the Glen paranormal historical Scottish romance (after A Highlander's Homecoming) matches up time traveler Leah Noble and highland warrior Andrew MacAlister. Half-fae Leah is hiding in the past, having escaped from the Nuadian Fae's breeding program, but when her adoptive uncle promises her hand to a perfidious Englishman, she realizes the 14th century is no safer than the 21st. While traveling to seek help from the part-fae MacKiernan clan, Leah falls in a loch; grievously wounded Andrew fishes her out of it and offers to show her the way, since her map and letter of introduction were ruined by the water. When the English catch up, Andrew protects Leah by saying she's his wife. Predictable inner wobblies ensue, and the delays in their journey allow plenty of room for premarital rapture and magic.
