As child the heroine left a candle burning in her family home which caused the fire that killed her sister and her father and resulted in her being heavily scarred. As such, she's horribly self conscious and insecure about how she looks and doesn't consider her beautiful or pretty. The fact that she's 6 foot tall doesn't help matters either as it's hard to feel pretty when she's constantly looking down at her dates. So, she's become a recluse. Sure she dates, or she goes on dates with man her mother finds for her but she never allows them to go any further than that. She practically lives in the woods where she and her father spent so much time in. She loves to be with nature and be away from prying eyes as she searches for the gold that her father had been looking for before his death. One day, she sees a naked man by the lake and everything changes. Snapping his picture, she finds herself chases down by the naked gorgeous demi-god. Scared half to death yet strangely attracted to the crazy man, she watches in horror as he destroys the photo and tackles her-showing her tenderness and a sweet touch while at the same time deliberately doing everything he can to unnerve her. They part ways when the hero leaves on a horse. Beyond freaked out over the experience, the heroine is even more freaked out when the crazy man turns out to be the cousin of her mothers boyfriend. Despite their less than stellar first encounter, the heroine finds herself unable to dislike the man. She finds his funny and sweet if not more than a little unbalanced with his cave man tendencies and possessiveness. The hero himself had become a recluse up until meeting the woman he decided to claim as his own. But one look into her passionate eyes, and he the was hooked. He finds her stunningly beautiful and makes no attempt to hide his attraction or his vow to make her his. He follows her into the woods when he finds evidence of her being in danger in her pursuit of the gold and despite the fact that he refuses to allow her to help erect a park on his land, he can't allow her to hurt herself. There in the woods during a very dramatic thunderstorm they sleep together. Unbeknownst to her however, in the hero's mind they are now husband and wife. It speaks to the heroines desire to feel desirable and loved that she would ever consider going through with such a crazy idea yet she finds herself falling for the hero. I really liked this book. One could make the argument that the hero was a stalker and his approach to- as he calls it- 'possessing' his woman could be considered creepy if not at least unhealthily, but underneath it all, I didn't feel as if it came from any other place than love. Though he's adapted well enough to the present he was very much a man of his times and the heroine herself was a very old soul. She could protest and baulk at his cave man behavior yet at the end of the day she allowed him to act that way. I think it made her feel special because he never showed disgust at her scares or ever pressured her into opening herself to him emotionally before she was ready. All in all, I was loving the chemistry between the two and the plot was exciting enough considering it was a contemporary romance. ( )

Loving the Highlander (Highlander, #2) by Janet Chapman .
Sadie Quill Starts some thing when she takes a picture of a naked man on a rock in a wilderness lake, and Morgan MacKeage is going to finish it. ( )

Sadie Quill, is patroling the land in Maine, for a park to be built, but she stumbles across a naked and virile highlander, Morgan MacKeage. After the encounter she is scared to death, and can't stop thinking about him, thinking him even though sexy as sin, is crazy and maybe not at all right in his head....Morgan when finding that Sadie is the one that will be wanting to put this beautiful forest and all its secret as part of a park, he wants to scare her off the land so she will never return but he never planned on her stubborness, or the intense desire he feels for her when he touches her, and wants to claim her as his own. Loving The Highlander is the second in the Highlander series, and I have just loved this series so far. I really Enjoyed this one as well, I think I enjoyed the first one a bit more, but this one was just as exciting and fun and full of witty repatore that could make you laugh over and over. I also loved the idea of the heroine, being not with perfect skin or a perfect body, that there were still some conflict between Sadie and Morgan, but it showed that love can truly overcome anything, and we see the hurdles they past together, and it was a truly magical read. I loved seeing the adventure, passion, fast paced action and the fun romance in Loving The Highlander! A Entertaining read! ( )

Sadie Quill blames herself for her father and sisters death, running from the past and present she focuses solely on creating their memorial (The Frank Quill Natural Park) in attempt to be forgiven for their loss. Morgan MacKeage wants nothing more then these damn people off his mountain. Fiercely protecting the gorge that houses the magically staff that brought him and his family 800 years into the future. How can he convince Sadie to give up her dream of fulfilling her fathers obsession without telling her the truth about himself and the land around her. Can Sadie accept her past scars and accept the medieval man that Morgan is. I never like romance novels with a poor weak heroine (how any woman can is beyond me). Sadie is a very self-efficient, sassy, driven, although somewhat absent minded woman. She is not quite sure that to make of Morgan he throws her constantly off balance, riling her temper along the way. She knows what she would like to do with him, but having shut herself off from people she isn't quite sure how to get there. Morgan knows exactly what he wants from Sadie, just not as sure how he is going to get to to his way of seeing things. Very light quick, cute romantic read. ( )

The beginning of the book was kind of funny, especially how Sadie and Morgan meet. He has the body of a god and she sees him swimming nude and takes a picture of him in the woods while he's sleeping. He hears her and chases after her (nude) and scares her to death. Then they meet again on a blind date and it's pretty funny.
