Fleur (our heroine) is widowed and seemingly content. The book opens with her in France with her friends. She comes across a large statue of "The Black Celt" and feels a strange connection to the sculpted warrior.
A few days after arriving back home in England she finds the statue has been delivered to her property. She often seeks it out for comfort and a sense of well-being.
Soon a huge highlander begins to show up and protect her from any danger that might come her way. He's crazy about her from the start but she needs to maintain her independence for her own peace of mind.
There was a mild sub-plot with a villian but it never detracts from the main story or characters. The banter between the two is great. He says the most wonderful things to her. I cared about the characters and was gratified with the ending. I highly recommend this book. I'm off to find other Lois Greiman books. High praise, indeed.
