I enjoyed this story. It is the second by Chapman surrounding this assembly of characters that I've read and enjoyed the characterizations more plausible and just greater in depth. It is a paranormal so accepting the implausible is a pre-requisite, but it wasn't the premise that I've had problems with in her writing, but the protagonists' resolution of their conflicts--they seem glossed over and too simple. Maybe I'm a sadist, but I generally like the H/h to work for their HEA a bit harder. In the two books I've read, her heroes are much more complex and desirable than her heroines. Perhaps that's why I have a degree of displeasure, I want a degree of equality in my protagonists. They should both deserve each other. So in Secrets of the Highlander I felt the ratio was much more on par.
