Summary from publisher:

They were driven apart by a timeless secret…
Cody MacBain let the woman of his destiny slip away. A member of an ancient clan of Scottish warriors, he grew up beside Shay Logan as her secret protector, but his heart compelled him to become more. Until Shay’s true identity was revealed, and the fated pair’s chance was gone…
But danger will drive them back into each other’s arms…
Shay fell for the boy next door, suspecting nothing of the ancient secrets he guarded. After a stinging betrayal, she’s determined to banish the memories of her first love forever. But the past can’t let go, and the boy she once loved has returned to her a warrior determined to protect her from the unspeakable evil fate has planned…
But with all the Underworld after Shay, Cody will have to call in the entire Connor Clan to keep her safe.

My Review: 

Highland romances are kind of my thing.  I love them all but I'm always looking for something different.  This was definitely something different.  It was a perfect combination of paranormal romance, historical romance and highlander romance.

I really liked Shay.  There really wasn't anything too spectacular about her but she had such intense chemistry with Cody that I couldn't help it like her.  Cody was such a great hero.  He had great chemistry with Shay.  Individually, they're okay but together the chemistry was amazing.  I don't think I would've liked the book is much if they hadn't had such intense chemistry even though the plot was interesting.

I love it when the main couple has an intriguing and tragic back story --Shay and Cody definitely do.  If it involves long separations, misunderstandings and opportunities lost, I am totally there.  I tend to chase the angst in romance novels.  If you couldn't tell already.  I loved how the paranormal mixed in with the story and kept it interesting.  This is one of my first contemporary Highlander novels - -something new that I must admit I like.
