Originally read in 2014, re-read in 2016.

I can remember the first time I read Charming the Highlander and feeling like Mary and Michael really got the shaft. I felt so incredibly sad for the life they would never have together. I had mixed feelings going into this book but Libby was the perfect heroine to help Michael heal. I loved their story.

Robbie, Michael’s eight year old son, was set on finding a new wife for his father and the internet brought him Libby.

This is the best of the series so far. The first two were enjoyable but average reads, but this one had those extra "somethings" that make a book above-average for me. The first 'something' is Robbie - 8 years old and totally in charge, in a very disarming way. Another 'something' is Libby's gift, which has frightened her and caused her to flee from her life as a trauma surgeon in California and move to Maine. There she decides to open a glass-crafting shop (a secret hobby of hers for years) and ...more

You have to be prepared to suspend belief and leave reality at the door with this series, and make a decision to just enjoy it – it’s surprisingly easy to do.

Despite a plethora of opportunities, eye-rolling is not allowed. Sure, there are destinies to be fulfilled, an owl that may or may not be a reincarnation, a modern-day magical healer, a 1400-year-old druidh, and highland warriors and warhorses transported 800 years forward in time. Oh, and of course, insta-lust to love in record time. Just

A bit tame for the series, but a very enjoyable read.

Libby (Elizabeth) Hart is a surgeon looking for a place to get away.... Her grandmother told her that she had a gift, but Libby never quite knew what that gift was until the day of a horrible train accident. In the trauma ward, the husband of a critically wounded older lady asked Libby to pray with him over his wife before her surgery. When Libby did, she felt herself surrounded by light and colors, and she felt herself enter the woman's body
This is the third book in the Highlander series by Janet Chapman, involving some 13th century Highlanders that travel through time to the modern world. I probably would not have liked this at all if I had not read the previous 2. The first book explained a lot regarding Michael and his son and I was actually looking forward to seeing Michael get his HEA.

4 Stars...

This very simple, yet very intriguing love story will have you busy like crazy turning the pages. This is my very first Chapman book, and I debated on not starting the series until I had the previous two, but I'm so glad I did...I just loved both characters from the beginning.

What is it about those big, scary, scruffy and hotter than the pits of Hades Highlanders that makes your blood boil?! For me maybe it's the untamed, rough and possessive side to them. Or maybe it's the way they ta

8/1/09 - Good book about frightened surgeon Libby running away then crashing her car into a pond and rescued by Micheal MacBain once a Scottish warrior. My first book by Janet Chapman and I'm anxious to read more.

2/11/16 - This paranormal romance was just as good reading it again six years later. It had the right mix of plot, action and romance with a little magic.

I really don't see how this novel received such highly rated reviews. I found it to be quite dull, with no real antagonist, and a lack of plot. The characters were quite boring, and the love scenes were lacking. I had hoped for more to Michael's story. I was left disappointed.

Libby Heart, a surgeon in California, discovers that there is something going on with her, she is able to heal others with a touch of her hands, so she goes to the other side of the country to get some clarity, and ends up crashing into a pond, and is rescued by a breathtaking highlander, who sets her teeth on edge. Michael is trapped with the 'moderns' in a century he doesn't understand after being brought here by a wizard, whom messed up his spell bringing other highlanders with him. After lov ...more

Leave reality as you know it at the door when you decide to enter these books! There is SO MUCH going on from the time traveling warriors to mothers who's spirits are in great snowy owls that come back and make sure all is well with sons and ex lovers...magical, healing physicians.... magical staphs...1400 yr old Driuds.. The list goes on and on... But even with ALL this it's a sweet story.

After mentioning that I enjoyed the Outlander series, an acquaintance lent me this book and another from the Highlander series. I'm glad I read the two of them because it made me realize how formulaic these books are. I got the impression though, that it had more to do with the type of book it was and not necessarily the author's lack of imagination (I'm sure there are certain guidelines you have to follow as an author - meet pretty in chapter 3, conflict resolution in chapter 17, etc, etc).

The story lacked any kind of true antagonist, and although the main character had some interesting personal strife, that part of the story took a back seat to the constant cooking and decorating. The heroine is a skilled surgeon and discovers she is not as normal as she thought, and seeing her deal with the loss of control was interesting, but I wish that aspect of her character was expanded a little more. Instead, she spent her time shopping, decorting, et cetera. The story stagnated because of ...more

Libby runs away from California after she heals 2 patients. She rents a house from a boy Robbie MacBain. His dad is a hottie Highlander who was thrown ahead through time 800 years. Both women in his life that he loved died running to him. He is afraid to fall in love again.

There is not much suspense to this book at all. Just a bunch of "geez! hurry up and spit it out!" moments. It's a light read with a cute story.

My only complaint is the picture on the back cover of a supposedly very good look

I already knew that I'd loved this story becaus of Michael, my fav Scot so far and his wonderful child Robbie.

Hqving decided to have a new wife for her father, Robbie puts an ad for renting his mother's old house and a very confused trauma doctor Libby comes to live in the house.

Both Michael and Libby are strongly gifted with powers so they are destined to fall in love since the beginning.

5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a well written romance with a twist. Instead of the female character getting slung back in time to the highlands of Scotland the warrior is transported from a Scottish battlefield to modern day Maine This warrior becomes a successful Christmas tree farmer of all things, but it works. There's a touch of magic in this sweet book and those of us who cut our teeth on romance writers like Kathleen Woodwiss and Julie Garwood will definitely appreciate and enjoy this one.

Book #3 and the series should be read in order (of course). I enjoyed most in this series. This was a good one. There isn't an actual time-travel event in this book. That only happens in book #1 when the highlanders are transported to present day; then once again in a later book, when someone goes back--temporarily--for a reason.

The rest in the series pertain (mostly) to the children of Grace and Greyland (book #1), with a dash of magic/wizardry. No graphic sex, that I can remember. There is a d

Pros: On a rainy day, I know I can count on Janet Chapman to entertain me. Her writing is of a consistent quality, so I pretty much know what I'm going to get. Robbie was my favorite character in this book, and I enjoy the series as a whole.

Cons: I was horrified by the scene in which the heroine, who just moved into her new rental place, wakes up in bed at night to discover the hero (whom she just met the day before) looming over her. The hero then proceeds to pin her to the bed, but we're to

Michael pun trauma merasakan sakitnya 2 kali ditinggal mati wanita yang dia cintai dan tidak ingin mencintai lagi.

The third book in Chapman's "Pine Creek Highlander" series is about Michael MacBain, a warring member of the MacBain clan, who was introduced in "Charming the Highlander", along with his son Robby. Michael and his fellow warriors were in the midst of a fight with Greylen, Morgan and other MacKeages when they also found themselves transported to the twenty first century. Michael is no stranger to heartbreak having lost loves in Scotland and the twenty first century, and has no desire to get invol ...more

Don't get me wrong. I love this series and these highlanders sure make my heart flutter but this story between Libby & Michael was a bit typical of the first 2 books in the series.

I did like Libby & Michael together they made for some steamy scenes but it is making me wonder of the rest of the books in the series will be about the same thing... a new Highlander and how he traveled through time and he meets the love of his life all while having steamy sex in between the pages?... hmmmm I

This book was very good. This is Libby Hart and Michael MacBain's book. Libby is a surgeon by trade but she is finding out very quickly that she is also a healer and has some serious magic that she knows nothing about. She had her grandmother to tell her about it but she thought she was making it up. Michael is from 800 years in the past and had been transferred to the future by a wizard and he still isn't sure why but is making the best of it. Libby is pulled to Maine, where Michael lives and s ...more

I docked this thing a whole star due to one too many short jokes. It's hard to evaluate a book when you're feeling insulted and well, just plain pissed off. 5' is petite. I get that, but it's only 4" shorter than average. An orange crate to climb into a Suburban? Really? Bite me Ms. Chapman. I can climb into the durned truck bed without aid of a box.

Oh. beyond that, our h declares herself a freak while explaining herself to a time-traveling Scott with 12 toes. Uh...
This is a really nice time travel series. Its been a while since I had read the first 2 in the series, but as soon as I started reading, things came back to me.

This series, at least so far, as a homey feeling to it. Small town living in the mountains. Just with the added large hunky scotsman from 800 years ago :).

Likable characters with a lot of heart. Some chickens, kittens and a ornery old druid. :)

I am addicted to this series. I love time-travel and romance novels. When they are combined, I really love it. I am working through each of the time travelers until they find their soul mate and their reason for being thrown in a time period 800 years in the future. It makes for a great story and Ms. Chapman does not let you down. She keeps the story moving and doesn't dwell too much on the past stories. She subtlety brings you up to date. You'll never feel a thing. Recommend it to you!

I have finally finished this book a few minutes ago. I have found this book to be funny. I don't read time travel book, which this book doesn't have time traveling. The hero and others are stated to have time traveled. I don't read paranormal books as well. This book has a little paranormal theme in it as well.

I don't want to spoil anyone that wants to read this book, but I do want to say that this is not a steamy book, although the hero and heroine do make love alot.

A doctor discovers she is a natural healer of the laying on of hands variety as well as her learned skills as a surgeon. She is shocked and runs to the east coast to escape the "miracle cures" of 2 of her patients. She finds understanding and love when she gets to rural Maine. Great characters, a good love story and a happy ending. She finds out that magic does exist and she is not alone and her gift is indeed a gift and not a curse.

It seems that all of her Highlander series are great. Very well developed protagonists. Libby and Michael made for a great couple. Robbie really added another dimension to the story along with his pet Mary. Adding in her mother rediscovering herself was also a great addition to the story. I really enjoyed this and will definitely read it again.
