Summary: Camry MacKeage has absolutely no intention of telling her parents that she left her job as a NASA physicist for the small-town life of a dog-sitter -- which is why she's spending the holidays alone in coastal Maine with her furry friends Tigger and Max. Unfortunately, her irresistibly handsome rival, scientist Luke Pascal, accidentally spilled the beans. Now he's on a mission from her mother to tempt Camry home for the family's annual winter solstice celebration. But Luke is hiding his own secret, and he'll need a little bit of magic to earn Camry's trust...and a whole lot of mistletoe to seduce his way into her heart.
'A Highlander Christmas' was actually a very endearing magic-filled romance. I enjoyed reading this book, I loved the main characters and I loved how they are both geeks, hard core geeks, its not often you see that in a romance. This book contains a bit of magic, love, lust, science, and even a "sort of" fairy godmother, ok well she's a real mother, but sometimes they are one and the same. I liked the addition of love between other characters as well, usually it is just the main characters, but in this book you see the love the parents have for each other and their children, I quite enjoyed that. I also found out this book is actually number seven in a series, I hadn't read any of the other books and wasn't lots at all...pretty good deal. Oh and the single one thing I love most is that this family celebrates the solstice...I NEVER see that in a book, and since it's my holiday too...I was very pleased to see this holiday for once count for a holiday.
