"Delightful time-travel"

REVIEW "Delightful time-travel" I love writers to venture outside the "rules box" and come up with a book that is both entertaining and different. Time Travels are hard to write and this lady likes to double her pleasure, double her fun, by having both the hero and heroine transported to a time period where they are totally out of element. In this sequel to Highland Dream (2001), you meet Griffin Campbell, a braw Scots lad, who is smart, sexy and destined to be the Chief of Clan Campbell - but only if he can marry. Problem is, any time Griffin gets in the mood for love, his stomach gets ready to blaw. For you Yanks (braw is might fine; blaw is hurl!!) A condition that is keeping him from marrying, which stops him from being the Chief of his Clan. He hies himself to a cave, same cave where his friend Jix traveled to the Twenty- first Century, and touches the crystals just as Jix explained. Suddenly, no sooner than you can stay William Wallace, the lad is in modern day Yeehaw Texas and meets Chelsea Brown. Chelsea is as mousey as her name, though Griffin takes a shine to her.

Only the coil - when he wants to get cozy he starts to get a bad tum-tum. Chelsea, on the other hand, fears she's too plain-jane for the Highlander. Griffin sees a picture of his cousin, from his period, and it says he was hanged in 1882 in Texas. Griffin tells Chelsea of the crystals and both set off to rescue his cousin from the hangman's noose. As Chelsea hits the dirt in the Old West, she begins to come into her own and look of Griffin!

Mallory's writing is refreshingly delightful. The having both hero and heroine out of element makes for fun time travel. Simply a really delightful tale.
