Surely she'd gone completely mad. Claire Manning can't imagine what she was thinking when she decided to help the escapee from her company's lab, but after seeing him caged like an animal, her humanitarian compulsion could not be overridden - even by the arrogant, scowling 18th-century Highlander Hugh Urquhart turned out to be.
His entire life has been taken away from him, and Claire understands the pain and torment of loss. She understands the desperation she sees in his eyes and is prepared to do whatever it takes to secure Hugh's freedom and future. What she isn't prepared for is the ruggedly handsome Scot she finds under the layers of grime and blood caked on him. Nor is she prepared to feel so much more than mere compassion for his suffering.
Contains mature themes.

Several things. The majority of the story is redundant; chapter after chapter of Hugh and Claire's bantering. From the interesting beginning when Hugh falls into a black hole, and the future, finding himself locked in a cage inside a Science Lab I thought it was going to be an exciting book. I was disappointed that after the beginning the only reference to the Lab animals liberated by Hugh and the Indian is that they were recaptured. I wanted to hear more about the fury little animal Claire found in the lab. The impression was given that the Indian Chief was still at large.
It started getting interesting again the last 3-4 hours.
It was OK.
I don't know. Her Narration is characterized by sarcasm. Her mocking sarcastic tone is funny at times but It gets old when used throughout the story as she did in "A Time & Place for Every Laird". She may do better narrating another book.
Yes, to be more careful choosing my next book.
I was expecting something different after listening to the sample and reading the author's summary.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This is a very nice romance. The only thing I didn't really love is the fact that this is basically a contemporary romance story and not a historical like the other books in the series. I feel the hero got used to the modern day era WAY to quickly. Other than that is a very nice complete and well developed romance with very good narration.
One of the best books Ive listened too! A different story line from other time travel audio boks which was really refreshing. Good plot and very good character development. The narration was excellent which in my opinion is what makes a book.
I always look forward to this genre of Time-Travel-what ifs. They are fun to read especially if they seem plausible within the parameters set by the storyline. Postulating that a man from the past finds himself in present day society is a great theme for a story. And Fortin lightheartedly gives us pause to see our present day life with other eyes.
Fortin! You rock.
Give us more.
"a good story"
this was a good story line although a little slow and descriptive. it took the whole book to capture just a few weeks.
