Sadie's Highlander, by Maeve Greyson is a compelling paranormal romance that mixes historical highlanders with contemporary times.
The MacDara clan is tasked with the honor of guarding the sacred Heartstone. Due to extreme difficulties and violence in 10th century Scotland, the MacDara family is transported to the 21st century in North Carolina.
Alec MacDara, a former Highland warrior, is now the CEO of a Scottish historical theme park called Highland Life and Legends, which his family owns and operators while concealing their ancient past and continuing to protect the secret Heartstone. When a Hollywood company requests to film at their theme park, Alec meets Sadie Williams, a struggling screenwriter and assistant to her obnoxious sister, and decides that she's perfect for him. Sadie is riddled with insecurities, yet she focuses on writing skills, as well as her attraction to Alec.
With a pleasant mix of modern day and historic highlander romance, it's a lovely story with captivating characters and humorous interactions, yet the ending was slightly disappointing and unfulfilling, especially compared to the rest of the highly enjoyable story. However, it's an ARC, so (hopefully) the ending will be adjusted in the final print.
Sadie's Highlander is the first book in the Highland Protector series, and it's geared towards those who enjoy reading contemporary and highlander romances.
