The Last Highlander
Scottland, 1998. When a beautiful American traveller stumbles upon this handsome Highlander, she is intensely drawn to the mystery surrounding this man, a mystery that has the power to alter history--and her heart--forever...
It took forever to get the story going. The hero took until almost page 100 to let the heroine know he was a time traveler.
The last 100 pages were very good. I enjoyed how they worked together to figure out how to get him back to the past. He had to go back because Scotland's history was totally changed when he went forward in time. They eventually get their HEA but there is som ...more
Loving was about knowing when to shelter and when to set free.
‘Tis not stupidity to trust someone held within one’s heart.
A promise made was a promise kept.
A man’s honor was the only thing of value he could call his own.
I’m partial to time travel. I mean, after all, what is better than experiencing the real thing instead of reading about it in history books? Author Claire DelaCroix made it very enjoyable plenty of comical situations and many moments where I related to the anguis ...more
Magical. Exciting. Superb.
Alasdair and Morgan's romance progresses as a magical adventure. Leery of men, thinking they are all the same as her ex, Morgan is more than suspicious when she finds a highlander, clad in traditional attire, moaning at the bottom of the stairs in Edinburgh Castle. She is even more confused when history as she knows it, is lost to everyone else.
The last thing Alasdair remembers is an old witch telling him he must ask Morgaine le Fee, queen of the Fa ...more

A bit slow in places, but picks up as the reader continues. The hero, is strong, chivalrous, and a supporter of Robert the Bruce. The heroine is safe, doesn't trust easily but determined to help get the hero back to his time, if not, his ...more
I found the characters, Morgan and Alasdair, to be a delightful contrast as they sort through what has happened. She is more dreamer and he is more the doer, still they complete each other. The plot flow ...more
He was a little less freaked out by the modern conveniences than I would have thought but it could all have been faerie magic. I enjoyed reading about a possible alternate recent past because of the paradox of him leaving (too often nothing really changes, but how can that be?) and the wandering through Scotland, a place I would love to visit.

I'm not usually fond of time travel stories, but I have to say that I loved, loved, loved, loved this story. The characters are all captivating and real and you fall in love with them all. So well written you feel like you are a passenger in this journey. Great insight also into Scottish history and how easily changing one thing could change things for ever.
So it doesn't have some of the action one might get from going to the past.
I loved it though. What a hero. *sigh.
It made me smile at the end. And sigh some more.
I so enjoyed the Jewels of Kinfarlie and the Rogues of Ravensmuir and this was just as brilliantly written, This is about Alasdair and Morgan and the adventures they had getting Alasdair back to his own time to save his son.
One I couldn't put down and will read again
This story is just beautiful. Broken hearts, fairly stories, sisters, and a sweet, brawl Highlander. I dont want to spoil the story, but it captures you. The characters are so real, and their challenges ... and triumphs will have you smiling thru your tears.
