Julia Brodie doesn't know why her Scottish cousin gave her a necklace with the insistence that she NOT try it on till she arrives in America. Being of the curious sort, she tries it on in the Glasgow airport and receives the shock of her life. Transported back in time to 17th century Scotland, Julia is rescued by the handsome Talon MacClure.

Talon MacClure, also known as the Wizard, can find anything with the help of a powerful amethyst ring. A ring he will protect at all cost. When Julia appears
Paranormal Romance

The thief is in possession of his own magic in the form of a ring which grants him whatever he wants. But it's fickle and most often he must rely on himself to keep out of danger. The hero is charming, charismatic but inside he wrestles with a dark past and is not an entirely a good man if his professio ...more

I liked this book, but not as much as the previous book. And here's why. **SPOILER** One of the main plots running through this book was the hero's background. He was ashamed of his beaten and teased and generally put down until he got the ring. He didn't want to tell anyone about it, especially the heroine, because he was afraid she wouldn't like seeing him in that light. Again and again in the book, he thinks to himself that no one knows the real Talon MacClure. I waited very patiently for his ...more

Amethyst Destiny is the second book in Montgomerie's time travel romance series and tells the story of Julia, a 21st century independent woman who has never needed anyone and suddenly finds herself in 1688 Scotland w/ her only hope being a charming, yet frustrating, man known as The Wizard. Overall, I enjoyed the story and it's characters, and loved watching the romance develop between the two main characters. It was fun to see how two people who felt they were better off alone came to find true ...more

In the next instant, she’s in a Scottish castle in the seventeenth century.

the first book was a stronger plot and had better action. this one relied too heavily on the magic and I just didn't care about the H/H. Talon was too tied to the magic to see his own worth. Julia was ok but I didn't really connect with this one. Nice to see Brenna and Roarke but even their character seemed off.
this is not you're normal time travel book. when a young one is being misused a little man shows up and gives the youngster a jeweled medallion and sends them to the future until they are 25. then somehow they are transported back 300 years to their birth place. way cool!
Amethyst Destiny is a surprisingly emotionally captivating novel.

While Julie Brodie and Talon McClure are driven by their pasts to become who they are today, they (mostly) let their emotions instead of their pasts guide their actions. I cannot help but go along on the roller coaster of time travel and romance that is their lives. And boy, what a ride it was!

Talon, in particular, evokes very strong feelings as the hero of the story. His own past and his struggles to overcome it alone makes the p
Wish we could give half stars - I'd really give this book 3.5 stars. I loved the main characters! Great humor and chemistry between them. They both had interesting backgrounds; and I loved the fact that the sexual tensions between them kept building, yet Julia wasn't a typical character that gave into Talon every time and she stood her ground. Good intrigue and adventure too; with an interesting twist of magic. Plus being based in Scotland all made for a fun read.
Really enjoyed Amethyst Destiny. Hope more Jewels of Time books will follow, there was no indication at the end of this story even with the references to the missing jewels and bringing them back. Hegarty has collected 3 stones, Sapphire (Sapphire Dream - Brenna), Amethyst and Purple Garnet (Amethyst Destiny - Talon and Julia), how many more? Nothing listed in upcoming releases for 2010 - 2011 : (
The first book in this series, "Sapphire Dream", is a fantastic read! "Amethyst Destiny" has a we Dream", is a fantastic read! "Amethyst Destiny" has a well-developed hero and heroine, but suffers from a sloppy ending. I think I need to go back and re-read the last few pages due to quick scene changes and choppy sentence structure. Still, this second book was a strong sequel.
I get to read Pam's books first -- even before her editor does -- which makes me a very lucky reader. This is a wonderful follow up to Saphire Dream. If you love a good time-travel romance, historic Scotland, and a great adventure plot, this book needs to go on your to-be-read list right now.
I really liked this book - it had mystery, humor, suspense, romance. I liked how the author mixed the current world with one from a couple hundred years ago. It was a nice fantasy!
Very Good Book. If you like historical romance set in Scotland and time travel you will enjoy this book.
I absolutely got hooked into this story I loved it! I couldn't put it down.
