Summary

A life hangs in the balance… A king held for ransom, a country under thumb, clans at one another’s throats. Malcolm of clan MacKintosh has enough to worry about without finding a mysterious lass sleeping on the side of his road. He tries to help her — in his overbearing, arrogant way — and winds up flat on his back. God’s blood, who is this woman…and why does she captivate him so?
And only she can tip the scales.
The fortune-teller said something about saving a life, then zapped Alethia Goodsky back to fifteenth-century Scotland — a land bristling with broadswords and intrigue. Alethia is no damsel in distress, though, even if brawny, blue-eyed Malcolm has sworn to protect her. With her wits and special abilities, she races to solve the gypsy’s mystery and protect those she’s come to love. The stakes climb higher and enemies close in, forcing Alethia to choose between finding her way home…and staying true to her Highlander.

Enjoyable story

Enjoyed the story in spite of the narrator who had the oddest intonation to her voice.

You're not the "Bossame"!!

I almost skipped this one because of the bad reviews but I'm glad I took a chance.

This is a light and humorous highlander time-travel romance set in present day and 1423. Alethia Goodsky is of Native American decent, is an accomplished violinist, and a strong independent woman. Malcolm MacKintosh is a Scottish warrior who is strong, brave, and smart....with a quick wit. Malcolm finds Alethia and immediately they both feel a strong attraction to one another. Their time and cultural differences are evident but Alethia's Native American background allows her to become more accustomed to the 15th century. They begin to realize that they have more similarities than differences.

I did not find the narration of Angela Dawe irritating at all. Each voice was unique and I thought she did a very good job with this book.

This book is charming, funny, touching, romantic, and very entertaining.

I wish she had more books like this

This book was wonderful. Interesting, exciting, well written and well read. I couldn't put it down. This author should write more books about highlanders and time travel, I just loved it.
