Title: Seeker: A Scottish Medieval Enemies to Lovers Romance
Author: Jean M. Grant
Genre: Scottish medieval romance
Aileana Montgomerie’s bloodline holds valuable gifts of foresight and healing, but with each honor comes a curse. Even though she is descended from the mystical isles’ folk, she lacks the ability of the Scottish Ancients and wonders if she belongs in a magical family. Aileana just wants a purpose. What good is her bow and arrow if she is denied the right to fight for her clan?
Brodie MacDougall is ordained to be the next war chieftain of his clan. The title is a privilege as long as his brother, the future laird, doesn’t expect him to lift a sword and charge into battle. Chronic pain and nervous vapors force him to spend his days alone. Can his strategic skills keep him one step ahead of his conspiring brother?
Through a magical Mortar & Pestle, Brodie finds his heart’s desire. But there’s a catch. The seat on his brother’s council is no longer dependent upon his health…but on Aileana’s strength. With rumblings of unrest among their clans, will their love foster an alliance or be a step toward war?
Escape to a distant land where bloodlines, clans, and magic entwine. I was gleeful when I heard Jean M. Grant has penned a new story. I always enjoy her books because they’re so immersive, it’s like traveling back to medieval Scotland. This book reads like a breath of fresh air. A woman who’s an exceptional archer and a hero whose health makes him appear weak. An unassuming pair whose strength lies with their bonding.
What makes Seeker an unforgettable read are the characters. Aileana and Brodie are not your average hero and heroine. In fact, they are original in their roles which only makes me love them more. They both have weaknesses and family pressures weighing them down. But once the mortar and pestle make an appearance, their purpose comes into focus. Trust me, you’ll fall for sweet Brodie.
The world-building and descriptive narration are brilliant, allowing the reader to dive into the story. The world-building is both historically accurate and filled with magic. Every scene is described beautifully right down to the last detail. The emotions conveyed by each POV is well-drawn and makes the reading experience that much more enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a medieval fantasy romance you won’t soon forget, pick up this book. Let the magic of love surround you. I strongly recommend this book to all readers.

Who am I? It depends on the day, or who asks, or what I’m doing. I have a penchant for the misunderstood: sharks, microbes, or characters with a wounded past to name a few. My background is in science — biology, marine biology, microbiology, and immunology — I do love “-ologies.” I married a scientist, too, and go figure, my kids adore science as well. My first love was sharks (the Oceanic Whitetip is my favorite). Then came germs – viruses & bacteria are amazing predators just as much as those big-finned ones. After an enlightening first job in the science arena, followed by publication of multiple scientific journal articles, I moved on to the stay-at-home mom life, sprinkled with a few other part-time jobs along the way. In 2017, I leapt full-time into writing with the publication of my first book, A Hundred Kisses.
Check out my bookshelf page or magazine page for current releases in books and magazines. I write where my heart takes me…be it a paranormal journey through historical Scotland, a pit stop in a small town contemporary romance, or mother-son road trip. I also write for non-fiction/travel websites highlighting getting outdoors/traveling with children.
