Peg Thompson has two priorties in her life, raise her 4 kids and to never fall in love again. Her family has a curse that killed all the men her female relatives marry to death by the age of 30, or within a few years of marriage, after having lost one husband, she isn't about to risk someone else. Even Duncan MacKeage, no matter how strong he looks or how attracted she is.
I love a Janet Chapman book, especially any that have a MacKeage or MacBain in them, or any of her other characters that have branched off her original Highlander series (which if you haven't read, I highly recommend!) they always have a fantastic mix of a normal contemporary romance with a massive sexy Highlander shaped dose of the magical in it. This book was no exception, and with a mixture of sexy highlander, sassy woman, humour and a few cute kids generously sprinked in, it was a a really fun book.
Duncan *dreamy sigh* he is very much on my Claimed shelf, he was a blend of sexy historical highlander and modern man, possessive, gruff but soft as marshmallow with those he loves. I mean, who can blame Peg for falling helplessly in love with him? I certainly did. And Peg was great as well, I love a strong heroine and she was definitely a fierce mama bear. This was very much demonstrated when she first met Duncan, in a scene which has to be the BEST first meeting between a hero and heroine...EVER, it was hilarious.
Although I haven't read the first book, but I plan to as soon as possible, this looks like a great series from Janet Chapman, full of heart, humour and sweet romance.
