Across five centuries and two continents comes the story of a love so strong it cannot be destroyed by death or conquered by time. Fleeing heartbreak in America, Aubrey Cumming comes to the Scottish Highlands and finds an ancient family and a new chance at love…if she can stay alive long enough to break the Comyn’s curse. The first book of the Highland Spirits trilogy!
Author MacKinnon (Whiskey Dreams, 2018, etc.) offers a little something for everyone in this novel, including a love triangle, supernatural elements, political intrigue, dramatic history, and beautiful scenery in a truly epic tale. Aubrey’s time in Scotland is broken up by glimpses of the past, which show how the family curse came about. The well-developed main characters are backed up by a host of entertaining and lovable secondary players. It’s clear the author did her research about the country, history, and landscape, which may cause some readers to do further research, if not book tours of their own. This novel is also highly recommended for fans of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, as its fans will find many hidden and not-so-hidden references to it in the text. A pleasing cross-genre novel.
