I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
'Beauty and the Highland Beast' by Lecia Cornwall is book one in the "A Highland Fairy Tale" series. This is the story of Dair and Fia MacLeod.
Dair was returning on a ship home when they were attacked. Dair was taken along with his crew and his cousin who he cared for and might have possible married. Dair barley survived and his cousin was raped and killed in front of him. So know Dair and his family are dealing with Dair being physically and mentally unhealthy. An old women who helps with birthing said to bring Dair a virgin and she can possible heal him. Dair father goes to the McLeod who has several daughters. There he meet Fia who heals animals and has a way about her that might help Dair. So she and her sister go back to try to save Dair.
Fia has been sheltered most of her life due to a fall that has caused her to have a limp and also slight scars on her face. Fia hopes she can help him...but she is attracted to him. Fia knows that her sister is the actual one that would be the one to marry but can she fight her feelings.
I have read Ms. Cornwall books before and I must say this was the best one I have read so far.
