Description of Bound by Wish and Mistletoe:

Desperate to honor a life-long promise, Susanna MacEalan escapes her abusive clan with the fierce determination of never falling under the power of a man. Ever.

Aggravated by shallow-hearted pursuing lasses, Robert Brodie, commander of his clan’s elite guard, has foresworn scheming women. Forever.

When magick transforms Brodie Castle into a Christmas wonderland, the two despondent souls find solace in a most unexpected place . . . each other’s arms.

Amid a whirlwind of escalating events, Susanna’s traumatic past threatens Robert’s ability to protect the one woman meant for him. In a harrowing moment, as her fears and demons coalesce, will hope, faith, and love be enough to save them?

Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present-day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate . . .

Found in the arms of her second soul mate . . .

Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia . . .

Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history . . . of everything.

Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning . . . or her permission. Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her. Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.

She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men—a laird in the thirteenth-century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland. Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately . . . into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.




***WARNING - This is a novella.  It is meant to be read as part of the series.  If you have not read it, you will be able to read the novella but not understand what the characters have gone through.

Welcome back to Brodie Castle.  Out the cut down the perfect tree for Lady Isobel's Christmas celebration, Robert quite literally is almost barreled over by someone on a horse wearing a hood.  His men and him are ready to strike.  Imagine his surprise when he lowers the cloak and discovers it's a woman.  He recognizes the woman as Suzanna MacEalan the daughter of an enemy.

None of that matters to Robert when his gaze settles on the beautiful woman, no woman can tame his heart, that is until Suzanna.  Suzanna is determined to fight him tooth and nail.  Her mother taught her not to trust a man EVER.  But something about Robert has gained Suzanna's trust.  Can Robert convince her that the safest place for her is behind the walls of Brodie castle?

Among the festivities of the first ever Brodie Clan Christmas, can Robert convince her the safest place for her is there and in his arms?  Can she let go of her distrust in men to let Robert in completely?  Can he protect her from her father and the men who wish to take her back as prisoner.

If you loved Forged in Dreams and Magick you will absolutely LOVE this novella.  It brings back all your favorite characters from the first book.  Suzanna is a nice addition to the clan's story.  She's strong, passionate, beautiful, and scared all a combination that will give Robert a run for his money.  Robert is one of the sweetest book boyfriends I have ever read.  He knows what he wants and goes after it putting him high on the list of most memorable men.  I cannot wait for the next book the wait will be long, but for more of the stories in the Scottish Highlands, the wait will be well worth it, 5 stars!
