Publisher's Summary

As a mechanical engineer in 1981 Chicago, Connie designs plumbing systems. She has also designed her life to perfection, right down to the man she hopes to marry. But when Mr. Right proposes, she can't say yes. A head-clearing vacation brings her to the Scottish Highlands, where her free-spirited twin wishes for Connie to find true love. Neither sister expects the wish to send Connie hurtling 500 years into the past.

Wilhelm Murray, heir to the barony of Dornoch, hopes to one day hold a seat in Parliament and bring urgently needed reform to Scotland. But everything changes when a woman slated for execution proclaims her innocence using the most peculiar language. Powerfully attracted to the brave beauty, he rescues her even though it means becoming a fugitive and forfeiting his dream.

As Connie and Wilhelm evade capture, she discovers his passion for justice. Scotland needs his ideas. It needs him. And so does she. But in order to clear Wilhelm's name, she will have to turn her back on everything she's worked so hard for and embrace the magic of love.

    Story
    "Eciting Time Travel Romance"
    If you could sum up Choosing the Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    Time Travel Romance


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the characters interacted and how they handled the time travel situation


    What does Marian Hussey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration adds the accents that really complete the story


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few teary moments - esp when the Thurstons take Constance as their daughter


    Any additional comments?

    An audio book that features characters with an accent is always more interesting when the accents are done well as they are in this case

    Story
    "Found a New Highlander to Love"

    Even though this is book 3 in the Highland Wishes series, I don't feel like I've missed a thing, only a desire to find out what books 1 and 2 are about. After this heart-jolting, emotionally gripping ride into a world I would probably not be educationally equipped to enter and survive in (in reality), I have to experience Jessi's worlds again.
    Constance has planned out her life (boring), but her heart won't let her make the final step in sealing her fate with a passionless marriage. Her sister, knowing her better than anyone else, gives her an extraordinary gift...a chance at being truly happy. For Constance that means a trip back in time.
    Willhelm Murray steps in and makes what could have been a very short trip into something that lasts through the ages. This drool-worthy Scot not only has the brawn and brain to see Constance safe, he also has the ability to make her consider revising her plans.
    This story has a little of everything with its action-adventure, romance, a villian I wanted to see get exactly what he deserved and great secondary characters. It didn't rush through any of the storyline and it kept my attention from the beginning.
    I'm on to book 1 and 2 in this series.

    I love reading! I also love looking for mistakes in what I'm reading.

    Story
    "Great Narration!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was okay. This story could have been so much better; it just fell kind of flat for me.

    Constance was really getting on my nerves after her and Willem/Wilhelm left for Inverness(?). She complained about her name not being as important as his (hello, time period!), she said she'd stop lying but then wouldn't answer of Willem’s/Wilhelm’s questions (not even her name?), and then she was being a pain when Willem/Wilhelm tried to surprise her with a bath. She was upset when she found out that Willem had her bag of stuff and thought he wanted something from her, even though he had been nice to her the whole time prior. I just wasn't really a fan of her.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I wouldn't really say the ending was all that surprising. It was more of a common sense/expected type of situation.


    What does Marian Hussey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator did a GREAT job! The variety of accents and the fact that she could do a male character who actually sounded like a male not just a female pretending to be a male. That was a nice plus there.


    Was Choosing the Highlander worth the listening time?

    Again, it was an okay story, but I'm glad I came across Marian Hussey because unlike the majority of narrators I've listened to she did a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    Something that really surprised me was the fact that Constance never really said anything about the stuff she was lacked/missed (bathroom, hygiene products, the food she ate), nothing. She goes five hundred years back in time and perfectly content with the lack of additions that were in 1981.

    Questions/Comments:
    What was with the narration involving words like: mayhap, thus, and other archaic sounding words?

    The monkey. Given the time period, when would Willem/Wilhelm have ever seen or known what a monkey was?

    "Too long"

    I was unable to finish this book, it was long and drawn out. Where is the abridge version when you need it?
