Publisher's Summary

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.

Not What I Expected!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

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.

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

It was OK.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kirsten Potter?

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.

Did A Time & Place for Every Laird inspire you to do anything?

Yes, to be more careful choosing my next book.

Any additional comments?

I was expecting something different after listening to the sample and reading the author's summary.

Contemporary Romance with a historical undertone

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.

Loved it! Give me more!

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.

Excellent Book

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.

Drawn out and narration was almost annoying

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Well I listen to books to keep my drive to and from work interesting. This book did not do that often times the narration was basically empty chatter. The story line had great potential but it was meaningless chatter between characters that really didn't lead you anywhere. Painful but I finished it because I have to complete things.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Less repeating of the inner thoughts and more action between characters.

Did Kirsten Potter do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

She did a good job, but I think because the story it's self was so boring you almost felt her voice was droning on and on

Could you see A Time & Place for Every Laird being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe but the script would need to be modified for sure..

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't recommend this book, I like lots of romance and action this one lacked in both areas. The time travel was not that impressive

At last, a reader who shows excitement!

When the story heated up, the reader's voice sounded excited. There was actual emotion that made the listener a part of the story. I won't give anything away, but just as I was responding, "How's that working out for you?", that's exactly how the character responded. Really an excellent tale about someone from the past learning how to function in today's world.

Interesting even if farfetched

I liked the character development. Claire and Hugh are good together and Claire's brother Danny is also an entertaining character. The story is pretty farfetched, even beyond the time travel angle, but it still held my attention and kept me involved. This is time travel forward rather than into the past. Hugh comes from 1750s Scotland to 2013 west coast America due to a science experiment at a weapons development company. Hugh is imprisioned but escapes with the help of engineer Claire who works at the company. He wants to go back to his home and time, but that appears to be impossible. In the meantime the intelligence agents are after him and Claire because they do not want the secret experiments to be revealed. It is interesting to hear how Hugh reacts to the new time and things such as cars, airplanes, computers, etc. Kept me interested throughout. Good narrator also.

Not what I expected... in a pleasant way

I wasn't sure about this book due to the tacky cover. It made me think it would be another pathetic 'romance' with no story and all bedroom scenes.
I decided to give it a go due to other positive reviews and was pleasantly surprised with a solid story that was exciting and kept my interest the whole time.
The narrator did a great job for the most part, her Scottish accent wasn't great but it is one of the harder accents to master so it can be forgiven.
The author did a fantastic job of describing the wonders Hugh felt at experiencing the 21st century and the every day experiences and expressions that we take for granted. She also researched her material well to make for a plausible and gripping story line without any cringe worthy moments.
I would also like to mention that there are minimal sex scenes that take place near the end of the story. They are written in a very tasteful way and aren't too detailed. I believe even someone who is put off by such scenes in books would be able to bare these.
To sum up I would give 4.5 stars for this excellent book and I would beg the author to please change the cover to a more suitable and respectable cover to truly reflect the contents of the book. If this isn't done I think she would be selling herself short.
