Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched all he cherishes turn to dust—more than once. For hundreds of years, he’s been trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and he’s being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows he’s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded creature’s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his eyes—a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.
Though part of a legacy of time-traveling sisters, Lilia Sinclair is planted firmly in twenty-first-century Edinburgh. Her granny’s matchmaking with thirteenth-century Highlanders isn’t about to lure her into the past, especially as ancient Scotland enters troubled times. After all, Lilia is blessed—or cursed—with dire prophetic visions. To protect herself, she’s put up an icy emotional wall no man could cross—until a pair of gorgeous, rippling arms breaks right through.
Graham MacTavish is pure trouble. Once the dragon bound to Loch Ness, he’s transformed into a philanderer of the first order. In fact, because of his dalliances with other men’s wives, a rival clan wants his head on a pike. Before he provokes an all-out war, Graham is banished to the twenty-first century, where he must win Lilia’s hand—or return to die. But after meeting a lass as fierce as any Highland warrior, Graham knows one thing: life with Lilia, in any century, is a fate
When I’m not at my full time job at the steel mill, I’m tapping away on my laptop, recording my daydreams of sexy Highlanders and the headstrong women who drive them crazy.
I also think of myself as a “watcher”. I live in the middle of a five acre wood in Kentucky, sharing the clearing where our house sits with deer, raccoons, possums, wild turkeys and even a groundhog. Did you know they’re also called whistle pigs? I discovered why when Jasper startled Hamish McGroundhog. Hamish whistled the alarm and startled everybody.
My sweet friend Jasper has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge but I know in my heart he still watches over me. He’s my four-legged guardian angel.
I also enjoy people-watching—you know, kind of floating along the edge of a crowd and observing how folks go about their day. All this watching feeds into my stories so take care, you never know when a writer might be watching.
As always I need to thank Random House Loveswept and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you this review.
I thought I had written the review for these books a while back but I guess I hadn’t. So forgive me for making this a short review. I was so very sad to see the end of the series with the end of My Seductive Highlander, though it was nice to see how both twin sisters got their highlanders. In both these books Ronan and Graham travel to the 21st century and their reactions to the conveniences we enjoy in this century appose to that of what they use in the 13th century. For example I laughed when I read Ronan’s reaction to Mairi’s car. Or when she goes to the hospital and he has to ride on the elevator. These were all moments that made me laugh at Ronan’s reaction. My heart also broke for Ronan and the curse that he has had to live with for so many years. I was so happy to know that Mairi was the one that was able to break that curse. And then with Ronan’s curse being broken it also freed Graham. Though Graham took some time to over compensate for the lost time it is what eventually lands him in the 21st century and time with Lilia. Lilia lives an fun and interesting life and she is such a kick ass woman. She is able to put Graham in his place and helps her in ways we never thought was going to affect her in the 21st century. Again I repeat I was so very sad in seeing the end of this series, but look forward to what else is to come from Maeve Greyson in the future.
I give both these books 5 highland kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
