Publisher's Summary

Scotland, 1272: Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.

Denver, 2007: Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day - she just discovered her fiance with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.

But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the 13th century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for 30 nights.

Pleasantly Surprised!

I didn't know what to expect with this author but I was pleasantly surprised by this story. This isn't your average Highlander adventure......its refreshing, honest, and unpredictable. The love between Caitlyn and Connor happens gradually and isn't forced. The story seemed more "normal" (even with the time travel theme) than others in the same genre. This book is more of a fantasy type romance rather than historical which is fine with me because I enjoy both.

The narrator did a good job. Her men's voices tend to be a little whiny but I got used to it and after a while I didn't notice much.

If you enjoy fantasy/time travel romances I think you will enjoy this book. I am looking forward to other books in this series.

CHARMING FEEL-GOOD PNR AS TRUE LOVE WINS THE DAY

I had not heard of this author before but anything with the word 'Highlander' in it and it's got my immediate attention - then couple it with time travel and a doomed love and I'm hitting the 'Add To Cart' button before I know it.

First you have Caitly (Cate) whose fiancée has been 'caught in the act' by her and she's feeling vulnerable but adventurous which is lucky because Conner reaches out through time to her and makes her a strange but tempting offer begging her for help and she finds she just can't refuse him (sensible girl). Conner, a sexy, handsome Highland hunk from the year 1272 (who's a positively drool-worthy temptation - especially in his kilt), is on a quest to save his sister and so duty dictates that he must find a bride but his reach spans hundreds of years into the future until, with the help of Fae magic, he finds Cate.

There was great chemistry between the two likeable H/H who have emotional baggage to overcome as both have been betrayed by love in the past so trust must be earned before love can blossom. Smooth flowing entertaining plot, likeable characters with good secondary ones too and the usual evil Laird whose plans don't include Cate and he tries everything to stop the marriage. It was romantic, tender, there was sexual tension, danger, fun, it had a mythical Legend and the magical Fae finally had to step in to help fate, and the lovers, along and it'll have you saying "Oh no no no" and "Ahh yes yes yes" over and over again.

Worth a credit? Yes, it was a very enjoyable listen and a good start to an 8 (so far) book series which I'd be happy to use my credits on, however I do feel that this may be compared to K.M.Moning's Highlander series and unfortunately, for me, it doesn't quite have the same depth - but it's a good second best.

Surprisingly Good

I don't typically read romance novels. However, sometimes you just need a change of pace. Years ago I had read a series of romance time travel novels by Karen Marie Moning that were very good. After that series, I had a difficult time finding another author I enjoyed. Most of theses type books feature hot headed men and stupid women. The only conflict in the story is because the main characters are to dumb to communicate. So when a review of this book compared it to the Karen Marie Moning books I so enjoyed, I decided to give time travel romance one last try. I am so glad I did! Yes the male lead is domineering, but he is probably realistic of 13 century men. The best was the female lead. Only occasionally did she act foolish and helpless and never to the point I was ready to quit reading, as has been the case with other similar books. While this book did not contain the same laugh out loud dialog of Moning's series, it was fun, interesting and enjoyable. I definitely read the next book in the series.

I had fun with this one

I had no expectations when I selected this book except that it would be fun and silly. I love time travel stories because I'm a kid at heart. And it did prove to be fun and silly, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it. It helped me pass the time while waiting for the results of my biopsy.

Time travel stories are nearly always fun.

I appreciate when the author of a time travel book makes an effort to explain how the time travel happens and sets at least some rules for the traveler and the catalyst.
Ms. Mayhue does that in this story. Okay, so there are no interesting scientific explanations for the occurrence, just fairy magic, but at least she laid some ground rules and followed them.

This is light, fun reading. Highlanders, kilts, time travel, clan strife, a Scottish king; all the standard post Outlander fare. There is one twist, however, that I liked: the intermingling of the heroine's present-day family with the yesteryear characters. Don't want to ruin the story for you by further detail.

Good narrator.

I recommend for lovers of time travel romance.

5 stars with a better narrator

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The author is new to me and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. This is a sweet, fun, romantic story. I liked all the characters. The narrator is not the best at the Scottish brogue and it is very off-putting in the beginning. I found myself getting used to her voice and reading style and it stopped bothering me. I wish Rosalyn Landor could narrator all historical romances.

Might have been a good story

But a horrible narrator. I simply couldn't continue. Tried to skip around and get the gist of the story, but the narrator was so bad! Someone said her male voices sounded like chipmunks...sorry to say that's a true statement. Even the women were bad.
