He is the father of her child, but the secrets they are hiding are tearing them apart.... Megan MacKeage escaped the smothering protectiveness of the Highland MacKeage clan to work as a scientist on the Canadian tundra. But when fellow researcher Wayne Ferris breaks her heart by rejecting her, Megan returns to Maine alone.... Then she meets the town's new police chief, Jack Stone -- the man she knew as Wayne Ferris. Instead of the quiet scholar he posed as, he's an aggressive private eye who's willing to fight for what he wants, just like all the overbearing men in her clan. So why is Megan still feeling a dangerous attraction? And though Jack claims he followed her here because he loves her, can she ever trust a man with so many secrets?

MY REVIEW
Summary:
Megan McKeage went to work on the Canadian Tundra and met a Wayne Ferris where she fell in love only to have her heart broken by him, and now pregnant and returned back to her family, is determined to start a new and fresh start with her child. Only things hardly go as planned, especially if your from the MacKeage Clan. Then the new chief of police Jack Stone, she finds out in a unexpected way, is the same man as Wayne…and now after just buying a home for herself she has no idea what to do. Megan knows that she can’t trust Wayne/Jack, because he hurt her once, and he definitely could do it again. Jack, still feels guilt over the way he had to hurt Megan, but he is a private eye, and had to keep who he was a secret, and when Megan was in danger he did the only thing he could in order to protect her…but at what cost?? Can Megan and Jack look past the hurt and betrayal to find and hold onto their love once more?….

The Hero (Jack Stone)
Jack has had a lonely life, after losing his parents at a young age, and running from foster homes, he has had to learn to survive. Now he is established in a career that keeps him fulfilled and one that helps kids that he feels a connection to, because he was once like them, who didn’t have anyone to turn to. Then when investigating a runaway, he starts to fall in love with Megan, whose sweet spirit pulls him in, and he will do everything he can to protect her no matter the price…even if that means losing her in the end.

The Heroine (Megan MacKeage)
Megan, is one of the daughters of Greyland and Grace, whom we see in {Charming The Highlander (1)} and when she went to escape from her family for once…she thought that she had found a man to love and have a family, one whom would be happy when she got pregnant, but then he rejected her and she went back to the loving warmth of her family. When she is faced with him again…she has no idea what to do to keep from getting hurt again. She wants to believe his reasons aren’t lies, but are truth, but only time will tell.

My Thoughts 
Secrets Of The Highlander is the sixth in the Highlander series. After reading Megans’ parents book I was excited to read her book, and I have just loved this series so far…and each book that I read I only want to read this author more and more. I feel like I am practically addicted to her writing and her stories, and I just can’t get enough of them….definitely a well worth it read to be sure. Secrets of the Highlander is one of those romances that just pulls at your heart, I felt a kinship with Megan, and was on her side most of the time…because even though Jack is trying to protect her….he definitely needs to work for it to get her trust back…and I was entertained seeing him try….I just loved the wit and humor that is in this book…there were parts that I just burst out in laughter…and those of you who have read this book know exactly what parts I am talking about (LOL) and those that haven’t well…you just need to read this series and you will laugh your heart out….but I did love the romantic side to the story as well…the wit I found was a perfect balance with the love story and with a spice of mystery and some fast paced action. There was such pure pleasure in reading Secrets Of The Highlander and I am thrilled to have found a new favorite author.
