Lily feels she must leave London and the shop she has for her healing practice in the midst of the witch hunts overtaking the city, and though she intended to head north, she didn’t quite intend to become lost in the wilds of northern Scotland, nor to be found freezing to death by a handsome Highlander, but Roderick saves her and brings her back home with him unclear whether this was the lass his grandmother foretold him finding. Despite Roderick’s rocky past in the love department, it was Lily who was more stubborn about being unable to believe in their feelings for each other and that got a little frustrating, especially when Roderick was trying so hard to make things right. But, they had such great chemistry from the start and it was a great holiday-themed highlander tale. For those who read the All the King’s Men Trilogy, Lily was featured as a child in the last story from that series, Knight of Passion. Nice, short read!
