Rating: 5 Cups
Aiden MacAlister, the peacemaker of the family, is heartbroken after his brother dies in battle. He has the task of caring for his brother’s land. On the way to Dunstaffnage Castle, he comes upon an injured woman who desperately needs help.
Jaedin Greer, a United States Army captain and nurse, is working in Iraq with the military police unit, who are short on medics. It is during an explosion she soon finds herself in the 1300’s, in a place somewhat familiar.
Aiden is on the way to Dunstaffnage Castle when he happens upon a woman needing assistance. Jaedin hears hoof beats and prays it is help. When Aiden takes her to his home, Jaedin learns the accident has taken her eyesight, but Aiden is very attentive to her needs. As they slowly learn about the other, Jaedin is certain she has been to the area in her time when she was smaller and things were in ruins. She even recalls stories her Gram would tell her about the MacAlister men. Can the two stay together throughout any time, or will Jaedin be transported back to the present, leaving behind the man who has captured her heart?
I must say Her Noble Destiny is a sweeping tale that transports the reader into a majestic time period. I fell in love with the descriptions of the era, the castle, not to mention Jaedin and Aiden. Jaedin is remarkable the way she loses her eyesight yet uses other senses, and measures, to grasp everything around her. The passion, and love, shared between Jaedin, and Aiden, spins a love affair that surpasses through time. Annie Marshall pens an exciting tale sweeping this reader into a lovely land, with vivid characters that captivate, and take the breath away, in this rare story of love.
