Highland Destiny By Laura Hunsaker – FictionDB. Cover art, synopsis, sequels, reviews, awards, publishing history, genres, and time period. Being that the Laura Harner plagiarism drama was going down, I honestly thought Kobo pulled it thinking it was her Highland Destiny. “Would it be alright if we just chatted? Talked, I mean.” “What would ye like to talk about my Lady?” Bronwyn still sounded unsure, but she came back into.

At this point, Connor still believes she betrayed him, and she realizes that she has to go back to her time. The wizards take her back and Connor realizes too late that he needs to go after her. He forces the wizards to find a way to bring him to Mackenzie in her time. After months of wasting away, and a particularly ominous dream, he forces them to send him to her right then and there.
Meanwhile, Mackenzie had been spending her time in a state of depression and was frequently by herself. Upon exploring the village, she finds a locket in a small shop with a picture of her inside.
A locket that, apparently, Connor had made for her but never had a chance to give to her. On her last day in Scotland, as she stands before Connor’s portrait, she is confronted with the full brunt of her pain. She sits to draw it one last time and, through her tears, hears Connor’s voice from behind her. She turns and sees the man standing right behind her and in her joy throws herself at him.
Realizing they have no time to waste, they go up to her room. After a bout of lovemaking, Connor sees the locket and tells her about it, and they then discuss how they will stay together. Finally, they decide that Mackenzie would go back to the s with him. A few years later, Connor and Mackenzie have a gorgeous boy, a beautiful baby girl, and an adorable newborn baby. During that time, their love has never died and Connor and Mackenzie continue to love each other forever I knew just from the fact that this was a book about Highlanders that I was going to love it.
I knew from the fact that the wonderful Laurie Hunsaker wrote this that I was going to love it. I knew from the book blurb that I was going to love it. However, none of those facts prepared me for just how much I was going to love it. I can honestly say that this is not only one of my absolute favorite Highlander romances, but it’s one of my favorite Historical Romances. I was immediately taken with Connor MacRae, from the moment he opened that carriage door intending to abduct Mackenzie.
Throughout the novel, he just continued to grow on me more and more, my love growing with every page. Not only was he a sexy Scottish Highlander and warrior, but he was sweet and tender, caring and loving. He just called to me. I will admit, though, to being a little disappointed in him when he was in the Campbell’s prison and he believed that Mackenzie would have betrayed him. Granted, she did leave him to go to the Campbell, but that was just to protect him!
And he continued to believe that even after he watched her kill the man. However, this little spot of disappointment was forgotten when Connor redeemed himself and went after Mackenzie. Mackenzie was a verra feisty lass, and I loved that about her, ye ken?
