"A Time Travel Romance Like No Other!"

Gwen Cassidy is a well into her twenties and a bonafide modern day virgin. Well it's not that she doesn't want to find the right man and settle down. It's just that her level of intelligence and the strict upraising by her parents closed many of those doors for her. Tired of her virginal status and determined to be done with it she sets out to find a 'cherry picker' while on a trip to Scotland. Little did she know that when she signed up for this trip that the group she would be traveling with were all senior citizens. It seemed that life was scheming against her 'cherry picking' plans.

It is on one of her stops along the tour that she decides to go venture out on her own and climb around the rocks. While doing so she knocks her pack down a crevasse in a rock and in an attempt to climb down and get it she falls and lands square on the chest of a man. Not just any man but Drustan MacKeltar, a gorgeous Scotsman who has slept for 500 years. Not by choice but as the result of a gypsy spell.

From here the book completely unfolds in wonderful romance and comedy as Drustan comes to terms with the modern century and the fiery woman who would be his guide back to his home. Of course she does not do this by choice, however like Drustan, Gwen cannot shake the attraction she feels for him. The fact that he is an Adonis doesn't make matters any easier. And her scientific mind can't reconcile with her body's reactions to him, as Gwen has never been or experienced love before, let alone pure sexual desire.

Ms. Moning writes a super fantastic romance full of great humor and adventure. Just when you think you can figure out where this book is leading she pushes you through time yet again. With the tables turned Gwen now gets a dose of just how disconcerting it can be to be lost in time.

I thoroughly enjoyed the hero and heroine. Gwen is a woman to be reckoned with once in love and held her own when it came to Drustan and his prideful ways. While Drustan is a tall dark and handsome man with a great sense of humor and a touch of alpha, that was definitely appealing. The secondary characters compliment them and made me eager to hear their stories as well. Her settings were easy to follow without letting them dominate the plot of the book resulting in a faster read. I found this novel to be interesting, fun and romantic and frankly, cannot recommend this book enough. Ms. Moning's Highlander series is a wonderful investment in sensually fun and adventurous romance!

A laird trapped between centuries...
Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he’d ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world. Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side....

A woman changed forever in his arms...
Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern — to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she’d ever seen? Or that once he’d kissed her, he wouldn’t let her go?

Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to sixteenth-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them ... and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves....
