Lake of Destiny


Lake of Destiny: A Celtic Legends Novel

A magical romance about men in kilts, destiny, family, and healing and the sometimes twisted path to love from the award-winning author of Compulsion

“Delightful, charming, and heart-warming.”
New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins

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 reveal 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 expose the secrets he’s 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.

Martina Boone is a phenomenal writer and Compulsion has been the first book in a while that when I was through reading it….I was literally IN AWE…I wanted more…I wanted more of the amazing characters, the setting, and the mystery.
