He must fight tooth and nail to gain the trust and respect of his people. As far as most are concerned he had abandoned them. He encounters many obstacles to make the land he had abandoned safer for the people.
Celia has made her home here in the land that had a neglectful laird. She ran her life to suit her and was making things work. All this until the new laird returned home. There is more to the return of the heir to the lands than she wants to admit to, but can she trust his motives.
There is much in this to draw you in and keep you entertained all the way to the end. There is a sizzling hot highlander, a beautiful healer, secrets, sabotage, outlaws, witch hunters, and much more. The is something fantastic around each page you turn.
I am a avid lover of all thing highlander. I will devour a book about romantic historical highlanders. I had not had the pleasure of reading any of Madeline Martin's books before this one. I will make sure that this oversight does not happen again. I loved this book from the beginning all the way to the very end. I was about to dive right in and keep going until I was finished. I have to get the first two books in this series. And of course that will mean re-reading Enchantment of a Highlander.
I give this a supersized 5star rating. I highly suggest a warm corner with a comfy sit and blanket. A side table for a hot drink. And much light. This will be a read well worth the time it takes to consume the words on the pages.

Enchantment of a Highlander (Highlander, #3)
The sweeping historical romance that began with DECEPTION OF A HIGHLANDER, and continued with POSSESSION OF A HIGHLANDER, reaches its dazzling conclusion in this scorcher set on the Scottish plains.
Alec MacLean returns home after a decade to find his recently deceased father has let his inheritance fall to ruin. As the new laird, it’s Alec’s responsibility to rebuild the castle and restore the lands. He must also regain the people’s trust after having abandoned them so long ago, a feat not easily done when he fears he’s plagued with the same darkness as his father.
Celia escaped the North Berwick witch trials at a young age, surviving because of the sacrifice of her beloved caretaker. She’s made a life for herself in the wilds of Scotland where no laird rules, a life where she heals for coin, a life without love so she can never feel the hurt of loss again.
When the new laird comes back to claim his land, his determination to restore order threatens everything Celia has worked so hard to gain, especially with the undeniable attraction sizzling between them. Together, they will face all challenges, from the tangle of their own damaged pasts to the fire-fueled witch hunts sweeping the Isle of Mull. Together, they will find that the best way to overcome darkness and war is through the undeniable light of love.

Celia had known the man was nobility by his fine dress, but she hadn’t expected him to be Laird MacLean. Nor had she expected the son of the former laird to be so just, so powerful.
The law did little good from what she’d seen, from what she’d experienced. Innocents were sacrificed under the guise of ‘law’.
A scratch sounded at the base of the door where the wind mewled. Celia pulled the latch and held the door wide enough for the red fox to slink inside before bolting it shut once more.
“Is he gone now, Ruadh?”
The fox stared up at her with his golden eyes and flicked his bushy tail in aggravation.
“Good riddance to that one.” She tossed the remaining thread into the fire and watched the remnants of the laird’s blood sizzle and curl into ash. “For the time being we are safe.”
She glanced at the door once more. Her skin still tingled where he had touched her. Unwanted, a thrill wound down her spine and blossomed in goosebumps across her skin.
He would be back and she would need to keep her secrets locked away, the way she had managed to do thus far.
Her life depended on it.
