Title: Wishes Under a Highland Star


Author: Mary Morgan


Genre: Scottish Fantasy Romance 


Book Blurb: 

As chieftain for his clan, Alex MacFhearguis struggles with the burden of an unwanted responsibility. With the midwinter feast approaching, he flees his castle to find comfort and solitude within the forest. Yet on his quest, Alex stumbles into a world filled with magic, mysteries, and a woman with beguiling eyes who could capture his heart.


When half-Fae Aine Fraser makes a powerful wish, her simple request unlocks the magic she possesses and brings forth a Highlander into her world. Though the man has lost all his memories, she finds her attraction growing for this brooding warrior with each passing day. Unable to deny her feelings, Aine risks everything when she confesses her greatest secret.


Can a beauty who wished for a champion tame the beast of Leòmhann Castle?




Her stubborn refusal to leave intrigued Alex. Would she flee if he challenged her? He lowered his head near hers. “Why do ye care?”


Her eyes widened, and her luscious lips parted. “Because I do,” she whispered.


Alex’s breathing became shallow and the air around them thick. Her pink lips begged to be kissed. Would they be as sweet as berries? Or as heady as the wine he drank last evening? An ache to take her in his arms filled him.


He wrestled with the conflict—duty, honor, possession. She was pure as new-fallen snow on a crisp morn, and he no better than a rutting stag. Though his hands shook to hold her in his arms, Alex steeled his emotions and moved away from her.


Ye deserve a better man, Aine. Ye are a beauty, and I am but a beast.


Aine’s smile came slowly as she took a step toward him and did the unthinkable. Standing on her tiptoes, she brushed a kiss along his bearded cheek. “Is it wrong to care for ye?”


Indecision plagued him as he regarded her—disbelieving, curious as to what his real fear might be. Shoving aside the conflict within, Alex grasped her around the waist. He nuzzled the spot below her ear. “Ye tempt your fate with a kiss, Aine? With a man ye do not ken?”


She lifted her gaze to his—her cheeks flushed with a rosy hue. “Did I tempt ye?”

Share a holiday family tradition: 

The weekend after Thanksgiving, we bring out our collection of nutcrackers. With each one, we reminisce about them—from where we made the purchase or if we received them as a gift. My husband and I have been collecting nutcrackers for over forty years, and we’ve lost count on how many we own.


Recently, we’ve started to gift some of the older ones in our collection to our children. They usually share a favorite memory about the nutcracker they choose, including the times we took them to see the ballet performance of the Nutcracker.


It’s a tradition that warms our hearts each holiday season.
