Scotland, 1272: Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.
Denver, 2007: Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day - she just discovered her fiance with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.
But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the 13th century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for 30 nights.

I didn't know what to expect with this author but I was pleasantly surprised by this story. This isn't your average Highlander adventure......its refreshing, honest, and unpredictable. The love between Caitlyn and Connor happens gradually and isn't forced. The story seemed more "normal" (even with the time travel theme) than others in the same genre. This book is more of a fantasy type romance rather than historical which is fine with me because I enjoy both.
The narrator did a good job. Her men's voices tend to be a little whiny but I got used to it and after a while I didn't notice much.
If you enjoy fantasy/time travel romances I think you will enjoy this book. I am looking forward to other books in this series.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I had not heard of this author before but anything with the word 'Highlander' in it and it's got my immediate attention - then couple it with time travel and a doomed love and I'm hitting the 'Add To Cart' button before I know it.
First you have Caitly (Cate) whose fiancée has been 'caught in the act' by her and she's feeling vulnerable but adventurous which is lucky because Conner reaches out through time to her and makes her a strange but tempting offer begging her for help and she finds she just can't refuse him (sensible girl). Conner, a sexy, handsome Highland hunk from the year 1272 (who's a positively drool-worthy temptation - especially in his kilt), is on a quest to save his sister and so duty dictates that he must find a bride but his reach spans hundreds of years into the future until, with the help of Fae magic, he finds Cate.
There was great chemistry between the two likeable H/H who have emotional baggage to overcome as both have been betrayed by love in the past so trust must be earned before love can blossom. Smooth flowing entertaining plot, likeable characters with good secondary ones too and the usual evil Laird whose plans don't include Cate and he tries everything to stop the marriage. It was romantic, tender, there was sexual tension, danger, fun, it had a mythical Legend and the magical Fae finally had to step in to help fate, and the lovers, along and it'll have you saying "Oh no no no" and "Ahh yes yes yes" over and over again.
Worth a credit? Yes, it was a very enjoyable listen and a good start to an 8 (so far) book series which I'd be happy to use my credits on, however I do feel that this may be compared to K.M.Moning's Highlander series and unfortunately, for me, it doesn't quite have the same depth - but it's a good second best.
I don't typically read romance novels. However, sometimes you just need a change of pace. Years ago I had read a series of romance time travel novels by Karen Marie Moning that were very good. After that series, I had a difficult time finding another author I enjoyed. Most of theses type books feature hot headed men and stupid women. The only conflict in the story is because the main characters are to dumb to communicate. So when a review of this book compared it to the Karen Marie Moning books I so enjoyed, I decided to give time travel romance one last try. I am so glad I did! Yes the male lead is domineering, but he is probably realistic of 13 century men. The best was the female lead. Only occasionally did she act foolish and helpless and never to the point I was ready to quit reading, as has been the case with other similar books. While this book did not contain the same laugh out loud dialog of Moning's series, it was fun, interesting and enjoyable. I definitely read the next book in the series.
This is the first time that I have listened to this author, and I must say the book was fantastic. The narrator was excellent. I can't wait for another book by her and another listen from the narrator.
I couldn't put this down. Great narrater for such a fun adventure into the world of the Fae and time travel. Love is the answer--true love wins all. Reading Book 2 now--can't wait for book 3 and hopefully many more. This is a story all will love and remember.
Yes, I enjoyed the tale.
When they rescue Connor and his sister and bring them back. I was worried about how it the author would find a way to give us a happy ending.
The whispers and high pitch of some voices made it difficult to understand all the conversations. When the narrator lowers the volume for whisper or the frequency of her voice to a high pitch it is not understandable at a volume that is comfortable for normal listening.
Evening the conversational volume.
There are three brothers who now work with Connor, Tell me about their adventures. Plus I would like a meeting between Connor and Richard. More stories please, with or without the faery connection.
The story was engaging and very well created. I loved the characters and the world created and it's made my re-read list. The narration was also fabulous and I look forward to more.
I enjoy reading -romance, mystery & paranormals. Some of my favorite audios are: Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Cat & Bones & JD Robb.
It was a good story with good narration.
I don't feel compelled to continue with the series, but if I catch them on sale, I would probably go for book 2.
The story has good ideas, nice characters, and good execution. I just think it feels a bit boring.
Not wrong - I could listen to her, she was not the best.
This is an okay time traveler, but there are just so many better ones (ie - Knight in Shining Armor& KMM Highlanders)
This story had the potential to be amazing. I love time travel books and always look for them, so I was so excited when I found this. I just had a hard time getting involved with the heroine. She accepted her situation a little too gracefully for it to be realistic at all! She had no depth to her character and was very annoying. It could have been the narrator, but I wont be listening to the next in the series. I do have to mention that the fairy backround story is a great idea though, I just would have gone a different direction with the story.
