Publisher's Summary

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, that 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.

Romance in the Fae Realm ;-)

This second book of the "Daughters of the Glen" is a great addition to the series. Without giving too much of the book away.......the story follows Sarah Douglas, a romance writer, through an adventure of self revelation. She discovers she is part Fae with "sensing" powers. Ian McCullah, who is half Fae, is a "Guardian" and begins to protect Sarah from the "bad guys". Their love blooms into a sensual journey that is exciting, sweet, sensual, and romantic.

This is a fun sexy Scottish adventure full of twists and turns. It is a nicely written tale with delightful minor characters that are captivating, endearing, and (some) threatening. The narrator did a wonderful job with each voice.

I recommend this book....especially if you've read the first book (Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband).

fantastic second installation! very yummy....

I was delighted to see the second book in the daughters of the glen series. I have to admit tho' that I had some lingering doubts as to how well a second book could be run off the first one without ruining one to create the other... Well I couldn't have been more wrong. The individual threads were woven into a wonderful story that absolutely shines.
References to the first book were minimal but easy to identify.. I often think it takes a special author to figure out how to pull it off. weaving in details we need to know without it being a plug for the previous book (s) in the series is a art form all its own. I see it as grabbing threads or strands from above, as if the first story is hanging above you and a tug here and there to weave in those strands seamlessly, blending yet coloring, tugging things together artfully with tiny knots and shades of remembrance. Ok, I know I am getting carriedd away but the blending was so artfully done that I really feel that expressing that to you says something very good about Melissa Mayhues works.

Credit worthy? YES YES YES!! If you like a hunky highlander with some heartfelt lust, emotions stirred to where they bubble over, a plot with sumptous twists and turns and intrigue. Well..... yes!

Elizabeth Wiley did a wonderful job with the narration. Her characters come to life, they are individuals, distinguishable, with their personalites clear and unmistakably theirs.

Would I recommend this to a friend? , duh NO DOUBT!
