Reveals the story of a fearless people, shaped by the traditions and landscape of the Scottish Highlands. In this book, the author traces the history of the clans from their Celtic origins to the coming of the Romans, through the great battles of Bannockburn and Flodden, to the Clearances and the present day.
Will desire be the answer or the ruin of an entire clan? As Laird, Callum Lennon feels he has always failed to protect his cousins. Callum´s impulsiveness caused the death of his father and the experience has scarred not only his body, but his soul. From that point on, he made sure to always go with the more logical choice in every matter. When his younger cousin Angus finds clues that might help break the curse, Callum begrudgingly hires Phoebe Chilton to investigate. Callum doesn´t like bringing outsiders into their family affairs. Their life would become fodder for the tabloids if anyone were to find out about the curse. It doesn´t help that the instant he meets Dr. Chilton he´s attracted. But, he doesn´t really have a choice because she might be their last hope. An expert in archeology, Phoebe has always been dwarfed by her parents´ shadow. Their high standards had her in college by thirteen and earning a second PhD by twenty-two. But her career and her broken marriage have left her needing something more than just diplomas and degrees. She wants to prove that her interest in legends, especially Celtic legends, is as important as her parents´ work. When the Lennon family contacts her, she sees the opportunity to win a massive research grant. With a long-time rival breathing down her back, she jumps at the Lennons´ offer her, hoping it will ensure her the grant. But uncovering the Lennon family secrets, and her attraction to Callum, could prove more than she can handle. Forces outside the family are determined to ensure that they fail. When an old enemy threatens both the well being of the clan and the fragile new love, Callum will have to choose between believing his mind or his heart. 1. Language: English.

When a brooch is broken, some of its magic is lost. When NYPD detective JL O´Grady is invited to be her brother´s plus-one at Montgomery Winery´s end-of-harvest gala, she plans to enjoy a fabulous weekend in Napa drinking wine, enjoying sunset dinners on the veranda, and watching her brother´s high school basketball tournament. Instead, she´s pulled into a murder investigation hauntingly similar to a New York City racketeering and drug case that nearly ended her career. The local cops insist she steer clear of their investigation, but JL´s gut instincts - and fears for her brother´s safety - drive her deeper into the case. With help from MacKlenna Corporation´s irresistibly handsome and charming CFO, Kevin Allen, she searches for a connection between the two cases, while at the same time her connection with Kevin rockets from mild to scorching in a New York minute. When another crime hits too close to her heart, the stakes escalate and endanger not only JL, but the entire MacKlenna Clan as well. Now it´s up to JL and Kevin - with a little help from David McBain - to solve the case. With time running out and danger closing in, JL and Kevin rush to discover the killer´s identity before someone else is murdered, and while they´re at it, they might just find what´s been missing from both their lives for far too long. 1.
