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

Time travel romances are epic!

A good contemporary time travel romance is fun; especially if the time traveler comes to present time rather than goes back in time. In this case, Claire walks into a laboratory at work and finds a man in a kilt covered in blood. Asking for help to escape the situation, she panics and runs but thanks to the Native American who is also being held in captivity escapes Hugh finds her and they on their journey to save Hugh and escape the company . Love this series!

Just Okay

I had to borrow a printed copy of this one because I didn't like Clair. The longer I listened the more I didn't like her. I kept waiting for her to grow on me but she didn't. Instead she just came across as a jerk.
On top of that, I almost decided to not read anymore books by this author. I was offended by the fact that she didn't even consider releasing the "savage" but the white man covered in mud and blood was suitable to consider. As if the fact that human beings were in cages wasn't bad enough, the one that doesn't look like you isn't worth saving, racist much? I'm just going to leave this here. I'll try the next one in the series but this one left a bad taste in my mouth.

Good

I enjoyed listening to Kirsten Potter narrating # 2 audio book in this series. This is was Sorcha and Hugh's story. Very interesting, steamy and delightful in the banter between the two. I could almost see this happening in our world. If I believed in worm-holes in time. 🤔
I received this thru the Romance Package. Worth it. 😄

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.
