Lake of Destiny


Lake of Destiny

A magical Highland romance about men in kilts, destiny, family  healing, and the sometimes twisted path to love . . . 

Helping her aunt organize a Beltane Festival in a picturesque Highland village seems like the perfect escape from Anna’s second broken engagement and the meltdown that wrecked her legal career. But to succeed, she’ll need to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, a disaster of a dog, and the reclusive laird who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of “Sighting.”

For centuries, Loch Fàil in Balwhither has been known to locals as a ‘thin’ place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning to show the face of a person’s one true love. The tradition could draw tourists by the busload, but that’s exactly what Connal MacGregor fears will reveal the two secrets he’s been desperate to keep hidden.

While Anna struggles to mediate between the needs of the village and Connal’s need to protect his identity and his daughter, she finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his child, the magical glen, the villagers. But day by day, opening herself to love exposes deeper scars from Anna’s childhood, and confronting those wounds could finally set her free–or endanger her every chance of happiness.

This book touches on just how consuming a small town can be, and even more so for the towns that have magic lighting the rivers on fire and shadows lurking behind every corner. If you love anything remotely suspenseful, romantic, with just a dash of madness, this book is most definitely for you.
