No. 2 Listopia’s Scotland the Brave and then some.
Reviews from previous publication: 5.0 out of 5 stars “Fall in love with Templar knight and a strong highland lass!”
4 out of 5 stars “This the first book by Cherime MacFarlane that I’ve read. Without giving spoilers, I enjoyed the twist in the beginning as well as Gideon’s inexperience-that’s something not often seen in a romance.”
5 out of 5 stars I was drawn in by the opening line, “She was not pretty.” In just about everything I read, everyone is so damn pretty it seems as if all characters in books are clones. Finally something else!
HIGHLAND LIGHT is a historical romance set in 1308 during the Scottish war for independence.
A young Scots girl cannot find a man who appreciates a headstrong plain woman. A small group of Knights Templar escape to Scotland to hide and start new lives. Among them is a young man, a ward of the Master of the Temple. The men have brought a treasure to Scotland. In exchange for a large share of the treasure, the knights may marry and be adopted into certain clans. No one must know of the agreement. Each man has a duty to the clan they are adopted into, and a duty owed to Robert The Bruce.
One young man has been with the Templars since the age of ten. He knows nothing of relationships or women. Their wedding is a business arrangement. Having no experience of sex or marriage, the young couple make a game of loving and learn of life together.
Let the games begin.

The spirits dance like fire in the sky. . . .
The three cubs—Kallik, Toklo, and Lusa—along with their shape-shifting companion, Ujurak, stand on the edge of the sea-ice under the blazing Northern Lights. The land has come to an end, but the bears’ journey is far from over. Now they must put their trust in Kallik’s paws, as she feels the ice pulling her out toward the ocean.
Life on the ice is more difficult than the bears imagined. While Kallik struggles to remember her polar bear roots, Toklo bristles in the unfamiliar territory and Lusa gets weaker by the day; black and brown bears don’t belong on the ice. Meanwhile, Ujurak learns firsthand what lurks beneath the whorls and bubbles of the ice, and what he discovers will change everything.
Just when it seems like they’ll never survive in the frozen wilderness, a mystical encounter with a bear spirit assures them that all will be well. But this strange vision leads to even more questions, and ultimately it might tear the bears apart—this time for good—as the next steps of their journey come into focus.
