Peg Thompson has two priorties in her life, raise her 4 kids and to never fall in love again. Her family has a curse that killed all the men her female relatives marry to death by the age of 30, or within a few years of marriage, after having lost one husband, she isn’t about to risk someone else. Even Duncan MacKeage, no matter how strong he looks or how attracted she is.I love a Janet Chapman book, especially any that have a MacKeage or MacBain in them, or any of her other characters that have branched off her original Highlander
series (which if you haven’t read, I highly recommend!) they always have a fantastic mix of a normal contemporary romance with a massive sexy Highlander shaped dose of the magical in it. This book was no exception, and with a mixture of sexy highlander, sassy woman, humour and a few cute kids generously sprinked in, it was a a really fun book.Duncan *dreamy sigh* he is very much on my Claimed shelf, he was a blend of sexy historical highlander and modern man, possessive, gruff but soft as marshmallow with those he loves. I mean, who can blame Peg for falling helplessly in love with him? I certainly did. And Peg was great as well, I love a strong heroine and she was definitely a fierce mama bear. This was very much demonstrated when she first met Duncan, in a scene which has to be the BEST first meeting between a hero and heroine…EVER, it was hilarious.
Although I haven’t read the first book, but I plan to as soon as possible, this looks like a great series from Janet Chapman, full of heart, humour and sweet romance.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
