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?

Narrator almost ruins this story

This is wonderfully written and creative story when it comes to this kind of book, I’m not just listening to fill the time but I am invested in the characters and what “happens next”. The storyline is original which is hard to do in the world of paranormal romance. But my goodness David Monteaths narration isn’t only lacking but cheesy/fake to the point of distraction. When he reads in his normal narration voice it’s fine, but when he voices different characters lines it sound like he’s mocking them, like a exaggerated joke of how woman or an American man talks. If the story wasn’t so good I would have tuned out after the first book

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....

Love these characters

Gosh 16th century men were such male chauvinists’. Love how the characters play off of one another. Could not put this one or the first in the series down. Totally captivated by this story. Great romance, exciting action, Scottish history, time travel; what is not to love. So glad others wrote reviews or I probably would not have taken the chance on trying this one.

Former fan

I'm just expressing disappointment that after spending hours reading 5 novels we're left hanging for years. It would've been kinder to wrap up the story at the end of #5, or continue after a couple of years at most. Expressing disappointment on the author's website, her assistant said I was being rude, but NO... it's very rude for an author to do a series & leave readers hanging! Wasn't #5 published in 2013? That's 8 years ago!

A nice escape

This series is by no means a literary masterpiece. But if you are looking for an easy listen, with some likeable characters and a bit of magic, this series checks all those boxes. The narration was excellent.

Overall

I really love this series. I'm not one for cliffhangers however this author and series peaked my interest. Here is the issue: The narration is not in sync with the different characters. Each Character sounds the same ether male or female with the same tone and inflection in the voice.

The female voice is the same I'm not sure who is a young adult, mature woman or child however I know who the villain is with witches cackle along with everyone else.

Better than book 1

Book 2 was way better than book 1. The narrator still shouldn't do female voices but it sounds like he at least attempted them better in this book lol!

The story was good, predictable but still okay.

More time travelling exploits

Despite my rather hesitant approach to book 1, I found myself quite enjoying book 2 and Myra and Todd's story.

With witch Grainna still determined to break the curse placed on her by the ancient druids and in need of a virgin in order to regain her youth etc, the MacCoinnich's know that they must keep Myra safe. With only one option open to her, the family prepare Myra to travel to the present day with instructions to meet up with Tara's sister and nephew. With a plan to fake amnesia, Myra is questioned by the police following her mysterious appearance and that's when Officer Todd Blakely's life steps into preternatural realms as he becomes close to Myra and finds a need to protect her.

Todd and Myra soon fall for each other and with love comes trust and slowly Myra reveals her story to Todd. Todd, understandably, finds Myra' story impossible to believe but as he continues to investigate the disappearance of Tara and Gwen (as she is known in the present day), he comes to realise that Myra's story is true, if still unbelievable.

When Myra returns home Todd is devastated but her return is not the end of the story or their romance. With Grainna still on a mission to return to Rennaisance Scotland, Todd finds himself once again fighting to protect Myra and her family and this fight takes him to Scotland and once again into the arms of Myra.

I have come to love the characters in this series and I will definitely be reading on further in order to see what happens to the playboy brother, Finlay, and his explosive connection with Tara's sister, Lizzie.
