Curb your Outlander cravings with Allison Butler’s seriously sexy Scottish novel about an English woman, a Scottish Laird, a case of mistaken identity and a love that will surpass all barriers.

An outcast in her own home for as long as she can remember, Lynelle Fenwick will do anything to earn her father’s approval. Including exaggerating her healing skills, and setting off alone to rescue her step-brother from a band of raiding Scots.

Living under a curse that has haunted the Closeburn Clan for years, Laird William Kirkpatrick, will do anything to save his sole surviving brother. He may not believe in curses, but his clan does, and the growing number of graves seems to support their side.

Having banished all healers from the clan for trickery, he has no choice but to allow an Englishwoman, claiming to be a skilled healer, into his home and into the room of his wounded brother.

Enemies by birth and circumstance, they can only succeed together. But blood runs deep, and tensions high. What matters the desires of a heart?

Why The Healer?

I will admit that when I first grabbed up this book, the cover is why I picked it up. Yep this is a cover lover scenario. However I will say that the inside of the book is just as amazing as the outside!! This had such a authentic historical setting and the details are so vividly portrayed in this book you feel like you are literally in Scotland. And the love story in this one is incredible. Our hero is a Laird who is a bit bitter against healers since most of his family are dead and when his only family left…a younger brother is injured he makes a deal with a local healer. She comes to live with him so her step brother who has been captured will be freed. I do love a Laird and Healer set up and Alison Butler handled this scenario so beautifully.
