Who does not love a Scottish romance?

  • Jul 23, 2010

 I accidently stumbled upon this novel and so happy I did. If you love historical romances based in Scotland with a wee bit of time travel thrown in, then this book is for you! Being part of The Highlander series, you are not left disappointed! An intelligent modern day woman thinking to change her life books a travel trip to Scotland, not knowing that it is a tour for senior citizens! After deciding to make the best of her trip and also a major life decision she has the mishap of falling into a deserted cave. It is in this cave that she lands on something or should I say someone! The adventure then begins with this Highlander and Gwen trying to sort out whom and where he really is. Literally falling in love with a 15th century Highlander turns out to be the best thing to happen to Gwen in this century and also the 15th century, and with not just any Highlander, a Druid! The author does an amazing job with mixing historical facts along with a fun love story. Tastefully written romance novel that will make you smile and wish to find your own 15th century Highlander to cuddle up to! I recommend this book and series to all.

I'm not sure when I will ever get to it, though, lol! I'm so behind with my reading and writing of reviews it's not even funny. I'll see if my library has a copy; otherwise, if I get any gift cards for my birthday, I can go out and purchase it. :)

Sad to say my library does not have a copy...probably because it's a romance. My library is lacking in that genre... (bummer)

About this book


Rife with unexpected plot twists, Druid lore and sparkling humor, Moning's latest time-travel romance (following The Highlander's Touch) returns to the Scottish Highlands for another romp between an ancient laird and a modern lass. Gwen Cassidy's hopes of finding a man crumble when she realizes that her much-anticipated tour of Scotland is a senior citizen expedition. Frustrated, Gwen decides to hike the breakneck hills of Loch Ness alone, and she ends up falling down a ravine and awakening Drustan MacKeltar, a Scottish lord who has been slumbering for 500 years under a gypsy's spell. Although Drustan is bewildered by the modern century, he is not puzzled by his feelings for Gwen. Her passionate heart and brilliant mind intrigue him, and he enlists her aid to return to the 16th century. Once back in Drustan's time, their struggle to save his people alters history and results in a surprising denouement. There's much that's fun here, both in characters and situations, but detail-oriented readers may be distracted by the novel's many anachronisms: for example, Gwen has coffee in bed in 1518 even though coffee wasn't available in England until the 17th century. Nevertheless, Moning's snappy prose, quick wit and charismatic characters will enchant. (Sept. 11)Forecast: Morning has just three titles under her belt, but her fan base is growing steadily. This paranormal, time-travel romantic comedy will appeal to Donna Kauffman aficionados as ...
