THE LEGEND MACKINNON
Three centuries ago in Scotland a curse was born of the long-standing feud between the Claren and the MacKinnon clans. Now, generations later, destiny has decreed that three women, the last of the Claren line, be granted one final chance to set things right.
Maggie, Cailean, and Delaney Claren are three cousins who grow up unaware of one anotherâ€”until an inheritance brings them together. Now mysterious journals and the deed to an ancient Scottish castle will bring them face-to-face with the warriors at the heart of the MacKinnon family, three brothers sentenced to cruel fates by a terrible curse.
Duncan is trapped in the form of a ghost, Rory must live an immortal life alone, and Alexander has been wrenched by time from the past to the present, with no way back. Ferociously compelling, dangerously relentless, they are bound by no mortal lawsâ€”except desire for the three Claren women. The journals speak of one key that can break the powerful spell. And finding that key will plunge them all into a world of unforeseeable danger and tantalizing desire….

“Donna Kauffman’s The Legend MacKinnon is a fantasy novel that takes romance down three separate roads. Each road is it’s own compelling and intriguing story, and each story is beautiful and passionate. The characters are captivating, and the love scenes are blistering. At its heart, however, this book is an imaginative testimony to the power of love. Three Claren cousins who have never met inherit their great-uncle’s estate. Maggie receives a cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. Cailean gets a trunk full of journals. Delaney takes possession of some old rock pile in the Highlands of Scotland. Each cousin has no idea the others exist, but as they begin looking for each other, the destiny that awaits them begins to take form. Three MacKinnon brothers, each cursed because of their arrogance, still walk this earth after three hundred years. Duncan haunts the cabin Maggie has inherited for one month each year, hoping every year that he will earn his final rest. Rory searches the world for three hundred years, never aging and always seeking his release from a Claren witch. Alexander has traveled through time, and as the eldest brother, his only desire is to return to his time and punish the clan Claren for their evil treachery. This time, when the fires ignite between Clarens and MacKinnons, it is love that grows instead of hatred and devilry. No fairy magic is necessary to spark these flames. No talisman is needed to begin the blood boiling. However, as the love pairs form, it is apparent to each that the time they have together may be short. The only hope of relieving the brothers from their individual curses is to find the key mentioned in the journals left to Cailean, but time is running out and tempers are short. The fiery tempest that builds throughout each love story is perfect in its passion. Donna Kauffman’s book is one of terrific driving emotion. There is a balance between tears and laughter that makes The Legend MacKinnon a truly wonderful read for any time of the year, but it’s springtime release seems most appropriate. Enchanting! A brilliant three-for-one romance! Gorgeous Highland warriors! Who could ask for more? A remarkable plot balanced by incredible characters! Donna Kauffman’s fantastic! Ghosts, immortals, and time-travelers! The Legend MacKinnon is jam-packed and fun!” ~ Karen Ellington, Literary Times
