Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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?

Great Highlander Series - Modern Meets Medieval

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....

The narrator is not believable

I listened to binding bowels before I listened to this book. I just cannot get used to such a deep male voice trying to do female voices. It doesn’t make it easy to imagine a beautiful woman ad the main character and experiencing the emotions and feelings that that woman is supposed to be experiencing. In this second book, the narrator doesn’t even try to make a female voice for Tara’s sister, Liz.
Kirsten Potter would be a good choice as the narrator for the remaining books in the series.

A Fabulous Series!

I love this series! As a fan of Diana Gabaldon and the Outlander series I started this adventure with some trepidation but the adventure is excellent, beautifully written with interesting and exciting characters. The only complaint I have is the narrator, he does an awful job with female dialog, especially Tara. He makes her sound like a simpering idiot, and she is one of the strongest women in the series. I almost wish he would just read the female parts without any inflection, we can get the idea who is speaking when he says, "Tara said," or "Laura exclaimed," etc.

But that is just me, don't let this stop you from enjoying the series.

Felt incomplete

The seamless continuation of book 1 got this story off to a great start. But somewhere in the middle it started to feel hollow. The characters stopped thinking things through. And the ending was so abrupt I felt like I had whiplash. I have high hopes for book 3, and as there are other characters, I am hopeful that the story finds a way to continue even beyond that. Not with the same antagonist, of course!

Expected more

I enjoyed the beginning really exciting to hear that they went back in time but towards the end it got a little tedious. I did like the narrator this time through it showed more spunk and character for each individual character

Good first book in series.

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.

Burn Silent Vows

This book was awful. I just couldn't get into this silliness. I was bored then started to skip through the book. FAIL
