Destiny Noble has been deserted by everyone she has ever loved. Her father, who her free-spirited alcoholic mother loved until the day she died, her brother who ran away, and now her teen-aged sister Leah is missing. Based on Destiny’s family history the authorities believe Leah also to be a runaway, but Destiny knows her sister, and she has been kidnapped! Destiny has visions, a gift from her full blooded fae father, and has “seen” her sister being held captive. Another of those dream visions has led her to Jesse Coryell who promises Destiny to help her find her sister.

Jesse Coryell also has connections to fae ancestry. Recently Jesse, wealthy owner of Coryell Enterprises that specializes in finding missing people, became a Guardian of the portals that lead into the realm of the fae. Jesse needs to find his destiny, his one true soul mate. When he is contacted by Destiny Noble, Jesse senses this is not just another job. His first meeting with Destiny results in having to save her from the evil Nuadian Fae. On the run, and searching for answers as to why the Nuadians have captured Leah and now want Destiny as well, Destiny and Jesse begin to feel the magical pull of their fae blood that has recognized each other as mates. Can Ms. Noble be A Highlander’s Destiny?

The magical world of the Daughters of the Glen series created by the genius of author Melissa Mayhue is continued in book 5 A Highlander’s Destiny. We were previously introduced to Jesse Coryell and his sidekick Robert MacQuarrie, a time traveling 13th century Scottish Warrior who has a gift with a gun, in previous books in this series. Jesse is featured as the romantic lead, paired up with Destiny Noble, a young woman who cannot seem to grasp the fact that she really is descended from Fairy blood. Their road trip trek to rescue Destiny’s sister Leah takes a lot of twists and turns, and along the way they find themselves falling in love. The villainous queen Adira is kind of hard to take at times, but the overall action packed adventure of A Highlander’s Destiny gives fans of this series a good read. Looking forward to Robert’s turn at stardom in the next book!
