Publisher's Summary

Single-and-pregnant museum worker Melanie voices an idle wish while examining a Scottish artifact, that a Highland warrior would sweep her off her feet and help her forget her cheating ex. The last thing she expects is for her wish to be granted. Magically transported to the middle of a clan skirmish in the 16th-century Highlands, she comes face to face with her kilted fantasy man.
Tall, handsome, and heir to his uncle's lairdship, Darcy Keith should be the most eligible bachelor in Ackergill. Instead, thanks to a prank played on him in his teenage years, he is known for being too large under his kilt to ever make a proper husband. "Big Darcy" runs his deceased father's windmills and lives alone at his family manor, believing he will never marry.
But a strangely dressed woman he rescues from a clan skirmish makes him long for more. When the woman's claims of coming to Ackergill by magic reach the laird's ears, she is accused of witchcraft. Darcy determines to protect her any way he can, even if it means binding her to him forever.

Typical Storyline and Overly Dramatic Presentation

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn’t recommend this book as the main character Melanie is enough to make most women cringe, and the reader is awful.


If you’ve listened to books by Jessi Gage before, how does this one compare?

I’ve not listened to any of this authors books before.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Marian Hussey?

Someone capable of a proper highland accent; hers was abysmal and veered between Glasgow, Edinburgh with hints of welsh to offset the cadences; an interesting mix but very annoying to listen to. Also someone less dramatic, often I had the impression she was performing for a group of 5 year olds, not reading for adults.


Was Wishing for a Highlander worth the listening time?

No


Any additional comments?

Avoid this book if you can, the reader is awful and completely ruins what already is a pretty borderline book.
