Highland Pull (Highland Destiny #2) By Laura E. Harner
Waking up to find a dead woman on the bed was a good indication that Dr. Gabhran MacLachlan was in bigger trouble than he’d realized. Recognizing this as another trap set by the dark Druid Master, Gav races from Edinburgh to New Orleans to find Alysone, a mental patient who claims to have awakened in a reality that isn’t hers. Her story, so close to his own, may be the necessary key to unlock his Druid memories and prevent him from shifting realities once again.
When Alysone disappears, Detective Miranda Close is less than thrilled to discover her new landlord and would-be lover is the missing woman’s doctor. Raised in the magick of New Orleans and already familiar with the darkness coiled within Gav, Randi’s belief in the supernatural may be all that saves her life when they are pulled hundreds of years into his past, and only one of them remembers the truth. When realities shift once again, Randi realizes they may be pawns in a much larger game.
The Highland Destiny saga continues with a tale of betrayal, murder, and magick that spans two continents and hundreds of years.
Review by Paulina Woods
I thought the first book in this series Highland Shift was good this was even better. When I was first introduced to a doctor named Gabhran I was in awe of such a strong man. He had to constantly fight the taint of evil and yet had never given in. When I started to read and noticed that Highland Pull would be his story I couldn’t start reading fast enough.
Gabhran, or Gav to his friends, is a man displaced through time who finds himself fighting a dark seed or spirit trying to take him over. With no real knowledge of who he is he has to try and follow his moral compass no matter how beat up it becomes. He travels across the globe to find answers in instead finds his soul mate, his partner, his love. After being torn apart the are brought back together and form a bond that is unbreakable and needed in the fight against evil.
Miranda or Randi as people call her is a detective who is really great at her job. She can read people but has no idea she has powers of her own. Growing up in a very strong Voodoo community she understands that magkic is real but fears that the trait skipped her. Strong willed and a fighter she is the perfect companion for her fierce highland druid.
I could never tell what was coming next, always a surprised. I found myself stopping to rethink about what I had just read and see if I could figure out what the end game was. Some of the villains tricked me and some of the heroes turned out to be not so good. I am still unsure about one character and can’t wait to read her story or at least find out if she is good or bad.
