In part two of The MacCoinnich Time Travel Trilogy evil witch Grainna seeks a virginal druid's blood in order to consolidate her powers. Eldest MacCoinnich daughter Myra fits the bill, and the family sends her into hiding 500 years hence. Myra is ill-prepared for life in 21st-century California, and when sexy but skeptical cop Todd Blakeley comes to the aide of the confused druid, romance is afoot. Unfortunately, Todd can't believe Myra's story, and when it's time for her to travel home, she might just take his heart with her. Striking Scotsman David Monteath delivers a sizzling send-up of Catherine Bybee's romance. A fetching voice in his own right, the versatile actor convincingly portrays this eclectic cast of medieval maidens and contemporary Californians.
Myra, a medieval virgin druidess, flees five hundred years into the future in order to escape death at the hands of a cursed witch, landing in the arms of a handsome but cynical twenty-first century cop.
Officer Todd Blakely knows Myra is hiding something, but he can't resist her innocent charms. Destiny throws them both into a world of intrigue and mysticism. Can Todd be the true white knight she needs? Or will magic and the winds of time tear them apart?

This one kept my attention due to the Scottish Accent of the Narrator. While he wasn't great with the female accents he is excellent with the males. Great job! The story line was good. Not the greatest. Hope the next book is better. Not worried too much as the narrator is the same and I could listen to that all day.
This is book 2 in a series. Audible isn't showing the series properly and book 4 came out first and confused many buyers which is a shame as I'm sure that affected the love of these stories to unexpectedly plop late into the series, so the books come in this order.
#1 Binding Vows
#2 Silent Vows
#3 Redeeming Vows
#4 Highland Shifter
#5 Highland Protector (not out in Audiobook yet)
This is a GREAT series, funny, serious, lots of twists and turns, and parts will make you cry. Love the books. AND the narration by David Monteath is PERFECT and frankly that alone is worth the listen. It's great to hear a Scottish man read for the male characters for a change as it really adds to those characters in an addictive sexy way. He's now one of my favorite "readers" (and I've heard many).
The books blend time travel, history, battles, humor, suspense, magick and romance (and some sex) in just the right blend. Each book picks up pretty much where the previous book leaves off and you'll want to go through the next all as soon as each one. It's more a tale of all these great characters, so it's a great family tale not just a romance based on "where can we insert plenty of sex scenes".
While some argue there's enough explanation in each to have them stand alone, since characters' histories and actions span multiple books, do yourself a favor and read them in order!!
Love these books, hope this series continues on and on....
