Warrior’s Redemption

Melissa Mayhue. Pocket Star, $7.99 mass market (372p) ISBN 978-1-4516-4087-8
Mayhue (Highlander’s Curse) extends her Daughters of the Glen milieu to the far north of Scotland in her latest bodice-busting time-travel Highland fling. Young orphan Danielle Faye Dearmon, obsessed by fairies since childhood, invests in crystals and faerie folklore and is suddenly whisked 700 years back to Castle MacGahan. Its laird, Malcolm MacDowylt, is a part-Viking Highland hunk tormented by his malignant half-brother, a drought with winter on its heels, a sharp-tongued Faerie mother-in-law whose daughter married Malcolm and then vanished, and now Dani. Her colorful 21st-century idiom and certainty that he’s the man of her dreams clash with Malcolm’s responsibilities to his clan and his guilt over his wife’s disappearance. The tale is awash with verbal foreplay building to predictably exquisite climaxes, and populated with enough of Malcolm’s Viking relatives to foreshadow an entire new series. Agent: The Knight Agency. (Jan.)
