Publisher's Summary

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O'Rourke believes in happily ever afters...just not her own. She's convinced passion exists only in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation - but she doesn't expect it to be in 15th-century Ireland.

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he's agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms. And she does not want to be there.

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily ever after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she's built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

Years worth of wonderful....

Ireland instead of Scotland and leine instead of kilt.... Still the perfect medieval romance a time travel legacy that makes it truly unique.

Excellent performance by Jane Jacobs.
No sex but true chemistry.
Definitely creditworthy!

A True Highlander Romance with a twist

This was a good time travel romance. It was what I would call a true romance with only one situation that had "relations". Saying that, the book was well written with an interesting plot with different twist and turns. This was well worth a credit.

Don't think she expected the adventure

Great story!!! Very savvy business woman meets ancient Irish warrior!!! Man of her dreams!!! Loved how she righted his castle in no time at all!!! She found her niche real fast!!!
Was hard for me to understand her parents not being more happy to see her but... overlooked that!!! different times and different cultures I guess!! Over all the love story was spectacular!!!
Jane did an excellent job reading and love listening to her!!

Lack of details like watching black n white tv

Which 21st Century person time travels and doesn't marvel at all difference in the 15th century? A mother sees her daughter for the first time in more than 2 decades and no reaction or even visits or keeps in touch. If u have not read authors who can transform u then u will love this book series but if u like details that help u visualizes Ireland in in the 15 th century this author missed the mark.

Good story, bad narrator

I liked the story, but the narrator didn't do so well. Her voice was want more mature than the character, her inflections sounded like reading to a clean and I couldn't believe what she was saying.

OKAY STORY NEED MORE ROMANCE AND SEXUAL HEAT!!

Would you try another book from Nancy Scanlon and/or Jane Jacobs?

Yes

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

The storyline need more depth and development. Brianagh meets her birth parents but that's it. Her mother Kathryn explains to her about the O'Rourke Time travel Legacy and then her mother father and brothers leave with not further communications. This part of the story feel very short. Who wouldn't want to spend more then a few minutes with there Parents.

What does Jane Jacobs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The Narration was good and expectable.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

NO

Any additional comments?

If you like time travel stories I am sure you will like The Winter Laird by Nancy Scanlon. I really enjoyed this light hearted fast pace no nonsense story. This is a "Very Clean Romance" story. Sex between husband and wife is implied but not described in any way. I would have liked a bit of sexual heat and interaction between Laird Nicolas MacWilliam's and Brianagh O'Rourke. After all he was her dream lover. The story follows all the same story patterns as most time travel. There was nothing in this one I haven't read in other similar genre stories. But it still was a good enough story to hold my interest!! I like all the characters well enough. I didn't like the Villain of the story Burke always getting the upper hand and winning over Nicolas and the MacWilliams Clan. I also would have like more interaction with Brianagh birth parents of the medieval times she was sent back too. There was just nothing there when she is sent back in the past and meets her mother Kathryn, her father Kierman and brother Brody and Reeves. Her mother did speak to her and explain why she was sent in the future with Reilly O'Malley has her protector. But then her family just ups and leaves.
