Once upon a time a clan renowned for its generosity and festive Yule celebrations lost its Christmas spirit. The once thriving MacNabs fell upon hard times as illness and hardship took hold. The biggest blow, however, was when the castle fell to Ralla the Victorious who took the lives of many before the castle was regained. Grief and sorrow cloaked the devastated clan and Archibald, the aging MacNab chieftain declared there would be no celebration and not a single sprig of holly could be found.
Breena and Grim are making it there mission to bring some much needed holiday cheer to the castle and attempt to heal a little of what was lost within.
Breena O'Doherty is a fun character who has secretly admired Grim since she was rescued from her captors. Originally from Ireland, she doesn't think she's good enough for him because she's not of noble birth and is a former slave. In a raid on her village in Ireland, she was kidnapped while her entire family was killed. Taken in by the Scottish clan who rescued her, she's seen both Grim's fierce and savage warrior side and his gentler, more tenderhearted side that makes sure the older hounds within the clan are fed. The combination draws her to him.
