Throughout the Highlands she is known as Keely, the witch woman. She is a great healer-a woman whose dreams come true. Ian MacPherson is a man who puts honor, loyalty and duty above everything. Their lives are entwined when Ian is sent by the Scottish King to bring Keely to trial for witchcraft. He is attacked and left for dead, but Keely rescues him. When he wakes, he discovers he has no memory. As he remembers his lost past, Ian finds that his need to protect the woman who has saved his life eclipses his duty to his king and country., He is a man torn between honor and duty to his country and the woman he loves.

Excerpt:

"Go," Whipple cried out. "Do not return here." The cane was still held aloft and the tip glowed red and orange, flashing ribbons of light heavenward while lightning descended to meet the cane. All seemed to blend into one, the beginning and end impossible to define.

Bolts of lightening struck the ground, prodding the soldiers away from the clearing, almost as if they shattered the forest floor for that purpose. Thunder roared across the heavens. Panic-struck, the horses and the men fled.

Yet Keely knew they would return. They sought her and she would no longer be safe. Her shelter would no longer protect her from harm. And she understood Whipple was not the frail old man he'd pretended to be for so many years.

"'Tis safe now." He stooped low and stared into the brushes. "Ye can come out from your hiding place. The soldiers are gone for the moment. Hurry, lass."

She brushed the twigs and her hair from her face and eased herself from the bushes.

Whipple was as he had always been, stooped and frail looking, his leg braced at the precarious angle she'd become familiar with.

She blinked as if the gesture would clear her mind and opened her mouth to speak.

"Hush, Keely. No questions now. We must flee. They will return as soon as they gather their wits. When there is time, I will answer all your questions."

Hi,

being from Oregon, & writing about the Highlands, I imagine you had to do all kinds of research.

I would love to go to Scotland, but in the meantime I'm happy to read about it.
