There are some series I’ve gotten behind on reading - Kathryn Smith’s The Brotherhood of the Blood and Christine Warren’s The Others series as examples. There’s others I haven’t started reading yet - Christine Feehan’s Dark Series, which is now too daunting to even contemplate beginning - but there are those series I’ve been able to stay up to date with that I thoroughly enjoy and always look forward to the next book. Melissa Mayhue’s Daughters of the Glen series is one of those. This series has ...more
I really liked this book! I was in the mood for a time-travel and a hot Scot, both of which this book had. I had heard good things about Melissa Mayhue, all of which were true IMO. I was only disappointed that I had not read the previous six books in this series before this one (not just sayin', there was too much I'd missed out on from previous books to understand this one like I should have). TT-type books are usually either going back or going forward, and I think both happen in this series; ...more
This is actually the 7th book in the Daughters of the Glen series. I had not read the other 6, and although I had heard of Melissa Mayhue (great first name, btw) I had not read a book of hers. It was not necessary to have read the others in this series to enjoy this book. You could jump right in because it is a book that stands alone. You do get a hint that there were back stories to the other ladies of one of the keeps, but it still did not distract from the enjoyment of this story.

I'd have to

If you are looking for books that have faerie magic, love, highlander's(Love the men in kilts!), suspense I would recommend this sereis to anyone.

4 stars

This is a fresh and light paranormal that readers of this series will surely enjoy. I loved the worthy and dashing hero.

Andrew MacAlister was maimed in a battle with the Fae. Now he suffers from constant pain and searches fruitlessly for a cure. When he finds and rescues a lovely lass and discovers she may be Fae and therefore have the ability to heal him, he is torn. He dislikes the evil Fae but longs to be health

“Healing of a Highlander” is Mayhue’s 7th book in her Daughers of the Glen series. Once again Mayhue has done another great story, with a great couple. As I was not crazy about Leah in the previous books, that totally changed when she left McQuarrie Keep, to help save her ‘grandparents’. Then she met Drew and I really began to like Leah. They certainly made great soul mates.

The story begins with Drew Macalister living with excruciating pain caused by an old wound, but when he rescues Leah Noble
Once Upon
This book is a trifecta, is a historical, romance and fantasy all in one and of course sexy highlanders as a bonus. It is the 7th book in the series, first one for me, but I did not have any problem following the story.
Leah time traveled from the future to hide from Nuadian, who were torturing her to make use of her gift of healing. Drew was hurt trying during a fight to rescue his sister and cousin from fae. They both have deep feelings that they have to fight against, she is determined to hide
Surprisingly, I liked this one.

This seems not your typical highlander sort of romance. Usually we see the hero 'highlander' would be this mighty warrior who would seal his heart even for the 'One' due to the thought of being a warrior one must not has this thing called love cos that weakens him. And then only later realize that love conquers all.

This one, the warrior was wounded by the past injuries he obtained. While his the 'One' was also wounded by a traumatic past. Their path cross together

Healing the Highland is a wonderfully romantic tale.

Leah Noble has fled the future where she was tortured by Nuadian Fae and held captive for her healing abilities. When their own son threatens Leah’s ‘grandparents’ she seeks the help of clan MacKiernan. Though she fears the clan and the Fae blood that runs in their veins she knows that they are her only hope.

Leah was once treated in horrid ways by the Fae, and managed to escape and made a life for herself in medieval Scotland. Even though she is from a more modern era, she has grown accustomed to life in Scotland, in the 1300's. When her adopted grandparents find themselves in trouble, Leah is determined to save them. When their son betrays them, and takes over their home and clan, and about to force Leah to marry a stranger, she escapes. She heads north, to a clan, that are kin to her grandmother, ...more

I know, I know. I skipped two in the series, but I was in the mood of a Highlander historical novel and I really wanted to see what these boys were up to. And, of course, Melissa Mayhue hasn’t failed me yet. I loved coming back to these characters and catching up. And then, there is Andrew and/or Drew. I really really like him hehehehe. He holds a lot of the same traits that other members of his family holds includi
In my opinion, Mayhue's Daughters of the Glen series just can't be classified as wonderful reading. It isn't an intellectually book at all. While set in a historical time they are more romance and a lot less historical as compared to Monica McCarty's books which often revolve around historical dates and include historical figures (though not always completely accurate).

While, Mayhue's books aren't the best quality they are good for light entertainment. Because they don't require you to put much


Leah Noble McQuarrie has spent the last decade living a time that’s not her own. She’s rebuilt the life destroyed by the Nuadian fae in the past and was quite content to have done so if it meant she was safe from those who sought to harm her. She was content within the McQuarrie keep with her adoptive grandparents until their eldest son showed up taking over the keep and trying to force her into marriage with a mean-spirited, high ranking old man. She’
I have been anticipating this installment in the Daughters of the Glen series for quite some time, and I was not disappointed! Leah's story is everything I hoped it would be and more. I was hooked from the first page and enjoyed the easy way the story flowed. There was action and adventure throughout, and I never once felt like it stalled along the way. Seeing Leah grow & change while battling her personal demons was both interesting and liberating. And then there's the small matter of Drew ...more

I didn't like this as much as Melissa Mayhue's other books. Basically for two reasons. One Leah accuses Drew of lying (by omission) yet she never mentioned the trauma that has shaped her life nor told him she was from the future. I just felt that the romance was forced. They barely communicated about anything important. It just seemed superficial which is unusual for Ms. Mayhue.

And two Leah is supposed to be racing to the MacKiernan's for assistance to free her Grandparents from their evil son y

I truly enjoyed "Healing the Highlander"! It was a fun, magical romance read. The thing that I love most about brave and brawny Highlanders is their great, oversized hearts! The hero of this story, Drew McAllister, is a wounded warrior in need of a loving, healing touch from a very special woman. He never expects that the woman will be Leah McQuarrie, a descendant of the Fae, and someone who could possibly destroy all he holds dear. Suspicion, superstition, and supernatural sensibilities are obs ...more
Leah MacQuarrie is part Fae and has traveled back in time to avoid Faeries who want to capture her. After years in the 1200's, her world is turned upside down when a bad uncle returns to claim the Lordship for his own. She escapes in an attempt to save her adoptive Grandparents. While fleeing, she nearly drowns and is saved by Andrew MacAlister, who is also part Fae and has been scouring the countryside for years in an attempt to find a way to heal debilitating physical wounds. He learns that Le ...more
Melissa Mayhue never fails to write well. Time travel is difficult to write, but I found "Healing the Highlander" fun, engaging, and impossible to put down. She has a way of taking characters out of the mold some writers put them in and breathing life into them. A definite recommendation for romance readers that favor time travel with an element of magic.
I wanted to like this book, and Drew was a great almost "beta" Scottish hero, but Leah ruined it for me. She was supposed to be 28 but acted and sounded like a teenager most times. The story could have been so much better if the writing had been better, too. It almost seemed like the author rushed and didn't put much thought into it.
I love this series it has the right mix of paranormal, highlander and contemporary mixed in to one. I loved the story of Leah and Drew. They both had their personal demons that they had to overcome in order to recognize themselves as each others soul-mates. It also it sexy and thrilling which keeps you hooked.
I truly enjoyed "Healing the Highlander"! It was a fun, magical romance read. I always enjoy my highlanders!

I wasn't sure I'd be interested in Leah's story but it turned out I really enjoyed it and especially getting to know Drew. Of course there were glimpses of past characters which is always nice.
I just love this series! Melissa Mayhue once again works her "magic" on a highly anticipated story. Leah's character was beautifully brought full circle in this latest Daughters of the Glen book. Thoroughly enjoyed it! I can't wait for the next book in this entertaining series, "A Highlander's Curse."
I always love time travel romance. This story is predictable, but I loved the character and enjoyed the read.
I really hate the argument and disagreement after they fall in love. This is repeated in many romance books. I skim through the expected misunderstanding after the marriage.
This book was a quick read because it is so sweet and Drew is the wounded man that you could love.

I probably should have read the books in order for this one.

All-In-All, I love where and when Melissa Mayhue takes me in her books. I will be reading more.
It was a good steady, solid story that kept me reading and the ending was chaotic, magical and very emotional. Really loved this book and can't wait for the next one in this series to be released at the end of the month! Just can't resist a man in a kilt... (4.75/5*)
Healing the Highlander by Melissa Mayhue is wonderfully adorable. Though it is a bit intense and there is plenty of eventful scenes full of action- I walked away from this book thinking, aw, what a cute story. I haven't read the previous six Daughter of Glen novels and still totally enjoyed this one. It can be read as a standalone novel as the author did a brilliant job at keeping the reader up to speed- I wasn't lost at all.

I just love that this novel is paranormal, time travel, Scottish and h

Melissa Mayhue lives in Colorado, in the shadow of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, with her family, two insanely spoiled dogs, one domineering cat, a turtle with an attitude, and way too many fish in their aquarium. If any one thing is obvious about the books I like best, it's that I love my Happy Ever After endings!!
