She is his greatest enemy and his only salvation.
Malcolm MacDonald, a lawyer in Edinburgh, unexpectedly inherits his father’s title of Laird of Dunbronach, forcing him to return to a place he hasn’t seen since he was a small child. To gain the trust of a wary clan, Malcolm must act upon their insistence that he cast aside his English betrothed and marry a Highlander.
However, they have one condition—no lasses of the barbaric clan MacLeod.
When he finds an unconscious woman in the sea, he brings her back to his clan but not before doing the one thing that could save her life—hiding her all too telling MacLeod plaid. When she wakes with no memory of who she is, Malcolm vows to keep the little he knows about her identity a secret. As new dangers threaten his clan, the mysterious lass teaches Malcolm some very important lessons about how to be a Highlander and a laird.
But secrets never stay secret for long, and when she finds her plaid, her memory returns and she flees. Malcolm is forced to make a difficult choice to win her back, facing his darkest fears and his worst enemy for a chance at true love.
To keep a selkie....
...you've got to hide its sealskin. So what about beautiful lasses that get washed up on the beach? Can you keep them when you hide their plaid?
Malcolm MacDonald never expected to find a beautiful but badly injured girl at the beach but as to that - he never expected to find himself at a beach at all especially not at this beach and certainly not as laird of the Clan MacDonald, that's for sure! But when this beautiful, unconscious stranger turns up wearing the plaid of the MacDonald's worst enemy, he can do but hide the plaid and take care of the lass. Will that be enough to ensure her safety? And what will happen, when she remembers her name, will Malcolm be able to keep her?
things get even more complicated, when his cousin Maccus, a drunk, given to raping and terrorising the lasses, turns up, expecting to become laird in Malcolm's stead...
Will Malcolm be able to overcome all hindrances and become a true laird of his clan and keep Marcail at his side?
The book is well written, full of twists and turns with very likeable characters and I really enjoyed reading it. I loved all the hints at mystic things and little twists like that, that fit so well in with the atmosphere of the book and the time and place where it is set. I laughed, I sighed, I was upset and I smiled a bit goofily - well, I really enjoyed reading this book!
