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.

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.
I had no expectations when I selected this book except that it would be fun and silly. I love time travel stories because I'm a kid at heart. And it did prove to be fun and silly, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it. It helped me pass the time while waiting for the results of my biopsy.
I appreciate when the author of a time travel book makes an effort to explain how the time travel happens and sets at least some rules for the traveler and the catalyst.
Ms. Mayhue does that in this story. Okay, so there are no interesting scientific explanations for the occurrence, just fairy magic, but at least she laid some ground rules and followed them.
This is light, fun reading. Highlanders, kilts, time travel, clan strife, a Scottish king; all the standard post Outlander fare. There is one twist, however, that I liked: the intermingling of the heroine's present-day family with the yesteryear characters. Don't want to ruin the story for you by further detail.
I recommend for lovers of time travel romance.
Love a story w/ humor,romance,adventure, w/out a lot of bickering,& good deals.
If the author would have wrote the first two thirds of the story like the last third. The main characters didn't communicate for most of the book. Also a better narrator, her Scots accent was off.
No, will listen to one of the Highlander series written by Karen Marie Moning. I know I won't be disappointed, and the narrator, Phil Gigante, is great too.
Improve accent and not sound like a spoiled teenager.
Everything Melissa writes I love!!
Any other Mayhue book.
I first bought this book in September 2011 and even though I loved it I never reviewed it..Just to lazy, I guess. So, I decided to read it again and review it this time. Matter of fact, I've read all Ms. Mayhue's book, one right after the other and never reviewed any of them but I intend to read them all again and take care of that. That's how much I love the book.
I love the magic in them and I loved Connor and Cate. Loved Rosalyn and just didn't like Richard at all. He had some really strange ideas.
This book had some mild sex and I liked that. I don't read books without sex (they're just to boring for me.) I would recommend this book to all time travel fans.
