Summary: (from goodreads) An enchanting new novel of richly-drawn romance from New York Times bestselling author Janet Chapman... 

Jessie Pringle moved to the small mountain town of Pine Creek, Maine, to start her life again—and to try to put behind her brutal attack that left both her mind and body scarred. But she never expected to meet someone like Ian MacKeage. Brawny and quick-witted, the green-eyed giant of a man seems to have stepped right out the Scottish Highlands.

As irresistibly drawn to Ian as he is to her, Jessie finds it more and more difficult to deny her own desires. But how long can she keep Ian content with only kisses?

Then, on on of her long walks through the wilderness, she meets a strange, kindly hermit who sells her a walking stick—one imbued with a magic that may allow Jessie to finally be rid of the pain of her past, and to build a future with Ian..

I am a fan of anything that relates to highlander as you can notice by my preferred reading material. This is one of those books and is one as well that you’ll want to finish in one seating and relish the warmth and cozy feeling it provides. 

Jessie is moving from the City in Georgia to a small town called Pine Creek in Maine. She is confident that this is the change she needs, even if family and friends believe that she has lost her mind and try to convince her to abort the plans. Something that she can’t put her finger on keeps telling her that this is her chance to overcome the tragedy she suffered four years ago. Once she and her best friend reach the town, after settling in the resort, they go to the town bar to relax and have some drinks. Ian and his uncle are the first thing they encounter and are mesmerized by them and this magical place. With the help of Ian she meets a realtor that helps her find the home of her dreams, and is one that had belong to his family before. Is there that she meets a hermit ancestor of the MacKeage Clan and learns that her move to the town has not been by chance but planned and expected by the magic that surrounds the place and the highlander clans. She is expected to receive some miracle as well as to provide one herself to fulfill her destiny .

It is a sweet, magical tale that makes you feel good inside and I for a fact, would never complaint if one of the gifts for my holidays is someone like Ian.
