Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband

By

Imagine being guaranteed safety for generations and the ability to call upon the “Fae” spirits at will at any time. Connor MacKiernan has need of the Fae folk, as he has made a foolish vow not to wed any lady in the entire land of Sithean Fardach, located in the highlands of Scotland in the year 1272. These mysterious spirits allow Connor to “borrow” and wed Caitlyn Coryll, an engaged woman living in present-day Denver, Colorado. She is presented to the MacKiernan clan as a gift from a Middle Eastern ruler, from the “Outremer” or foreign world. If it all works out, Connor’s sister, Mairi, will not have to marry a most repulsive ogre with powerful political ties. The plot, however, thickens as Connor’s father, Altair, has different plans that he believes will keep his own position safe. When Caitlyn, or Cate, rejects the hand of Blane, an opposing suitor who is part of Artair’s plans, the situation becomes dangerous. So begins events including attempted murder, conspicuous accidents, blatant insults, cultural customs that delay Cate’s arrangement and departure, and a final battle that may end not only a life but the end of the protection by the Fae folk. Delightful!
