Highlander Reborn begins in Scotland, many centuries ago, where a blacksmith fights for his life and his people. His life is forever changed when Amalia, one of the Nightkind, makes the choice to save his life. But first, he has to die...


After Nevin MacLachlan’s wife was killed by a vampire, he made it his mission to hunt them all down. But one late Highland night, in a battle he couldn’t win, one of the Nightkind ripped open his throat. With his blood draining onto the grass, the last thing Nevin sees isn’t a white light; it’s the dark of night closing in on him.

Amalia has been enamored with the blacksmith ever since he first held a stake to her heart. Watching him die was unacceptable. Will he ever forgive her for turning him into what he hates most?

Nevin has lived his life alone for a reason. When Amalia walks back into his life seven centuries later asking for help, he wants nothing more but to turn his back to her. But something about her still calls to him.

Some of the Nightkind in Amalia’s seethe have been killed. It’s up to her to find Nevin and ask for his help. But how can she show Nevin that she isn’t the monster he thinks she is?


Ok, since Highlander Reborn is only about 40 pages this review will be short so that not to spoil you guys.

Highlander Reborn reads like the Cliff Notes of a really great PNR novel. You get the highlights of the beginning,  middle and ending of the story. You have a story of a highland warrior that hates vampires and then gets turned into the thing he hates most. Centuries later his sire, the sexy vamp that he can't get out of his head, comes to him for his help.

There is strong sexual tension between the two that they given into in a couple hot scenes. I feel like their relationship moves really fast but again the story is told in 40 pages so it kind of has to.

I really liked the characters the idea of their story. I would love to see Highlander Reborn told in a full length novel. It ends with the possibility of another story and if that is the case I will read it in a heart beat.

I would recommend this hot short story to fans of sexy highlanders and vampires alike. Come on what sounds sexier than a sexy Scotsman with fangs?
