This book is a trifecta, is a historical, romance and fantasy all in one and of course sexy highlanders as a bonus. It is the 7th book in the series, first one for me, but I did not have any problem following the story.
Leah time traveled from the future to hide from Nuadian, who were torturing her to make use of her gift of healing. Drew was hurt trying during a fight to rescue his sister and cousin from fae. They both have deep feelings that they have to fight against, she is determined to hide her gift and he is determined to find a cure. Fate brings them together when Leah goes to search for his clan to help save her adopted grandparents from their first born, who is trying to take over their keep to give to the English. They are forced into a relationship to save their lives after they find themselves surrounded by those they are trying to run from. The story develops light and easy, which brings me to the only  fault  I found, I missed the fiery passionate highlander, Drew was in my opinion kind of weak at the knees. None the less I really enjoy the book. Being that  I am very partial to all that relates to highlanders and that I enjoyed reading this book a lot, I will say that I is a good enjoyable read and that I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Summary: (from goodreads) ANDREW MACALISTER longs for a cure to free him from the excruciating pain caused by an old wound, but when he rescues a drowning woman, he has no idea how much his life is about to change. All Drew knows is that this mysterious woman is hiding secrets—and that he’s never felt such a consuming desire before. Yet he cannot deny her request for help, even if it means bringing the detested English army to his Highland clan’s home.
LEAH NOBLE MCQUARRIE still harbors a deep hatred of the Fae who tortured her eleven years ago, forcing her to escape back in time to the thirteenth century. A descendant of the Fae, Leah denies her heritage and her magical healing abilities. But the English army is holding her beloved adoptive grandfather captive, so Leah must seek help from the Fae—and the captivating man whose touch she craves.
Then Drew discovers Leah’s secrets, and he’s torn between old loyalties and trusting a woman who has the power to give him the future he’s sought—but could destroy his clan forever. . . .
