I enjoyed reading Tess Mallory's time travel books. It's been several years since she's published a new one so I was thrilled to pick up "Highland Rogue", her latest and (I hope) the start of a new series.

Maggie is finally going to live her dream. She's been accepted as a worker bee on an archaeological dig IN SCOTLAND! When the dig leader offers to show her an ogham, she accompanies him to an ancient cairn where she actually trips over what turns out to be a stunning find...a huge carving in t...more

I always enjoy a good time travel, and Highland Rogue is a good one. It starts a little slow before getting down to the nitty gritty, but once there we get some great action, an involved storyline, and the characters are interesting and true to themselves throughout the book.

In the beginning a little too much time is taken, for me, in getting to the traveling part of the story. We learn about Maggie and her sisters, how they lost their parents and how she had to leave her dreams behind to raise...more

To be honest, I really didn't like this book as much as I thought I would. To be completely honest, I really didn't like it at all. That's incredibly rare for me, especially because I went out and bought this book.

The story is along the basic time travel highlander lines; girl goes to Scotland and finds a way to get whisked back in time to 16th century cotland where she stumbles onto the path of a rogue highlander. In this book, Maggie goes on her dream vacation to Scotland on an archeological d...more

Hmmm... Ok, it seems that there was more time allotted for Ian's rescue than the H/h's relationship. Also seemed rushed in that she's declaring her love for him within a few days of meeting him.

Editing issue: there was a scene where the H was in bed, the h laid down on top of the covers, a discussion ensued where the H got up and walked around. The h wraps her arms around him, paces some herself, then asks if he's wearing anything under there. Before he can answer, she runs her hands under the c...more

This was a surprise as I had such high expectations. This is a time travel book where the heroine goes back into the past. In several other books of this nature, it's done well, and the story is usually interesting enough to keep my interest.

This one...not so much.

There is a plot, but you have to really dig for it around all the illicit sex that went on. I'm not adverse to a steamy scene, but it seems there was more of that in this book than substance.

When all was said and done...the female char...more

With time-travel romances, you have to be really careful. this was such a disappointment. It was stupid and annoying. I like that the hero ended up in the twenty-first century. but the book itself, while it had its moments, the book was not that well-put together. There was very little in the way of interaction with any other characters in the past until towards the end, and then they moved to the year 2008, and then they went back and (spoiler alert) faked his death, then it was done. It's a sh...more

Time travel. Okay, but too much inconsistancy, ends with American marrying time-traveling Scot in present day, is there no legal document necessary for this? Just one of many problems blipped over by author.
Also don't like stuffed animals for an adult woman, or having her described as "spunky." Plus, main character finishes her degree before taking on her two younger 11-yr-old sisters who are now 21. Character now gives her age as 23, so she graduated college & provided for her sisters at 13...more

This is another book I really enjoyed. Quinn MacIntyre is a highway man who comes across and accidental time traveler, Maggie Graham. While the story has very obvious Outlander shades to it, I really liked the characters.

I do confess the ending wasn't my favorite, and I found a couple of things distracting or not well enough delved into, such as Quinn's journey mid-way through the book, though the characters are well crafted.

Recommends it for: the lovers of a timeless romance.
A wonderful story and can I be Maggie?? please..This is so much how I think and it read like I am going to be her when I go to Scotland. Everything she thought and believed in was like a book I have written of my own life to happen in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and look forward to read more from this author. Oh where are you, my Highland warrior to sweep me from my feet and call me lass....

Sometimes you just need a light-hearted and fun fluffy romance (seems like I'm needing them more than not lately!). This certainly was what I needed after spending a grueling month in Spanish I and II and not fairing so well grade-wise. Who the heck needs to know how to speak Spanish when you can time travel time to the Scotlish Highlands; right? :-)
Mary
I liked this Scottish time travel book. Quinn and Maggie seemed like interesting characters. There was apparently a lot of hanky panky in the bedroom (and haystack)going on back 300 years ago. I'm sure the two sisters will have their own books. The characters seem believable. It's funny when Quinn tries to adapt to Maggie's world.

I really liked this story, I loved the time travel in this novel as there was mostly past but with a bit of future. The characters we simple but interesting. Enjoyable read, Its more a novel to read when you want to just lay back and read.

I loved this book, but then again I love all Tess Mallory's books. Quinn is an amazing hunky hero & Maggie was a great heroine who did not have one too stupid to live moment.

Can't wait for her next book.

This is a time travel story about a woman on vacation in Scotland. She time travels to 1711 and meets a masked bandit called the Piper.

I just thought this book was ok.... The first couple of books on the series were better. This one was kind of hard to get into.
