1. Поредицата Daughters of the Glen

За съжаление такива страхотни книги са рядкост. По принцип не харесвам много историческите романси, но тези са трепач. Сега съм си набелязала една поредица от 6 издадени книги и предстоящи още 2 за публикуване. Авторката е Melissa Mayhue, а серията е Daughters of the Glen:

1. Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband (2007)

2. Highland Guardian (2007)

3. Soul of a Highlander (2008)

4. A Highlander of Her Own (2009)

5. A Highlander's Destiny (2009)

6. A Highlander's Homecoming (2010)

7. Healing the Highlander (2011)

8. Highlander's Curse (2011)

Кориците са страхотни, като от приказка са (само за пример по-долу качвам корицата на първата, останалите са подобни красоти :) ) От резюметата видях, че част от героите имат магически сили, а действието се развива в Шотландия. Неудобството е, че не съм ги чела и не смея да ги препоръчам на никого, само споделям какво съм си набелязала. Освен това май са написани на по-различен английски, за разлика от Лайза Клейпас (при нея всичко се разбира почти идеално, дори речникът е ненужен през повечето време), защото ми трябва повече време да осмисля какво е написано.

1. Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband

In the misty recesses of time a Faerie Prince loses his true love, prompting a blessing on all his mortal female descendants, bestowing his powers on them that they should be protected and allowed to find their own true loves.

CONNOR MACKIERNAN is a 13th century Scottish warrior, a descendent of that Faerie prince, a man who lives only for honor and duty, but he has a huge problem. His experience of betrayal at the hands of women has left him suspicious and distrustful of any woman's motives. He's sworn never to marry, but finds he must do exactly that to save his sister. With the help of his well-meaning aunt, and a little Faerie magic, the search for a bride is on.

CAITLYN CORYELL is a 21st century woman who longs to be strong enough to find love without sacrificing who she is. Her experience with an unfaithful fiance who wanted to marry her only for her family's money and influence has left her doubting her desirability and any man's reason for wanting her. Imagine her surprise when she puts on an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging her help to save his sister. He offers a simple adventure: travel to his time, marry him and return home. But nothing's simple when the adventure backfires, trapping Cate in the 13th Century.

An ancient Faerie's blessing reaches across the barriers of time to unite two emotionally wounded people. But it will take more than the magic of the Fae to heal their hearts. It will require the most powerful magic of all - the magic of true love.

2. Highland Guardian

SARAH DOUGLAS is a successful thirty-eight year old romance novelist with big problems. She's come to Scotland on a three month working vacation hoping to recapture her muse - who's deserted her - and resolve the issue of her strange 'feelings' - the ones which allow her to sense the emotions of everyone she touches.

From the moment she arrives, however, her problems only intensify. She's being stalked, but by whom? Is he real or only a figment of her imagination? What about the darkly handsome owner of the cottage she's leasing? How is she ever going to deal with her growing attraction to a man ten years her junior? She knows from bitter experience men - particularly men who look like Ian - aren't interested in women like her.

IAN MCCULLOUGH is neck-deep in troubles of his own. As a half-mortal descendent of Faeries, he's a Guardian, sworn to protect both the mortals of this world and the Portals leading to the Faerie Realm. After six hundred years, he's confident he knows what to expect in just about every situation and exactly how to handle it. But he never counted on a woman like Sarah showing up in his life; a woman who intrigues and charms him. A woman who turns out to be of Faerie descent herself, although she has no idea of her heritage and no belief in any Otherworld beings.

When he's assigned to protect her, Ian finds the job is tougher than he could possibly have imagined. Oh, he can handle the stalker and the ex-husband and even the renegade Faeries trying to kidnap her for their own purpose. It's falling in love and forsaking his status as Guardian, a position he swore to honor at his father's deathbed, he's having trouble with.

Both Sarah and Ian struggle to battle the demons of self-doubt and their individual pasts. In the process they learn that healing will take the strongest magic of all, the true love that occurs only between two souls fated to be together.

3. Soul of a Highlander

Nine years ago, Faerie Magic saved MAIRI MACKIERNAN at the cost of her dreams of happiness, snatching her from her life in 1272, and depositing her in the twenty-first century.

Now, she must save the last Daughter of the MacKiernan family...who was murdered in 1295. Transported back in time at her request, Mairi finds herself captured by the same evil men as before! Is this the price the Faerie magic requires of her this time?

RAMOS SERVANS has dedicated his dreams to service as a Guardian, but when he discovers the evil unleashed on the Mortal Plain by his father and their people, he swears he will atone by ridding the world of Nuadian deceit. Part of his mission involves rescuing a lovely Highland lassie, and in the passion that grows between them, Ramos and Mairi find a new dream.

But falling in love can be dangerous when Faerie Magic is involved. Dreams may not be the only cost...

5. A Highlander's Destiny

When the worlds of Mortal and Fae collide, the magic of true love is put to the test.

He's tried to lose himself in his work, taking on the worst mankind has to offer, but as a Guardian and Fae descendent, what he really needs is to find his true love.

The magic of the Fae works in its own mysterious ways, however.

SCOTLAND, 1292. ISABELLA MACGAHAN has reluctantly chosen a lonely existence, scorned for her Faerie blood and uncontrollable power.
