Finding love in a dangerous time.

I was so excited for this book release and after finally getting to read it I was not disappointed. With sexy Scotsmen and exciting time travel who couldn't fall in love with "The Laird's Future Bride" The world of supernaturals in old Scotland is well thought out and very intriguing. I liked the idea of their being a safe place for those with supernatural abilities to come and stay without fear. There is a lot of potential for this series and I can't wait to see

Loved this one. Imagine, if you will, being stranded in the past and finding yourself married to a Scottish laird. It makes for interesting reading, I tell you.

At times I wanted the clobber the hero over the head with a club for his overbearing behaviour, but I LOVED the heroine. Feisty, and independent she doesn't take any of his nonsense. The way she struggles to adapt and finds her place in a society that is alien to everything she believes in, is wonderful to read.

She brings about quite a

not horrible

Well it gets better, but the first quarter of this book seemed to be written by a different author. Perhaps the beginning was drafted very early on in her writing. The grammar is poor, the dialogue stilted and characters not well done. At times I wanted to whip out my red pencil and start making corrections in the margins. That said, I was ready to put the book away, and it shifted. The grammar was somewhat better and the characters at least grew into interesting rather than
I liked this one. This is the first book I read from this author, and I enjoyed her writing style. It had a good flow--was easy to follow, entertaining characters--possessive alpha male, likable heroine. I would consider it spicy, but I would put it on the "sweet" side. It had some suspense--the heroine doesn't seem to grasp the concept that living in medieval times means a female must be more careful--and she seems to get in a lot of trouble. Conflict between the H and h tended to get rectified ...more

Holly was transported back in time by a witch where she meets Duncan the Laird of the MacLeod clan. Duncan and Holly has feelings for one another however Duncan has fears that she has feelings for Callum his brother who would very much like to claim her for himself! Then add his hears of her not fitting in his time period and worried she would like to go home makes for one interesting story! Excellent Job Hazel Gower! I'm looking forward to Callum's story!

This was a very well written book by a wonderful author. The characters were interesting with a fast paced interaction between them. The sexual situations were hot, numerous and satisfying. I am looking forward to the coming books in this series.

An interesting read with Holly thrust back in time, the interactions between the characters were intriguing.
Duncan is very strong willed and Holly fights to get back home but slowly gets to know Duncan.
This was hot ,fast paced with sexy Scotsman

It's not my first journey with this author. I enjoyed her books before. So, when I saw this one, it was no question if I gonna read it.

I'm not really picky in my genres. But if there is an alpha highlander from some 16 century and a girl with a spirit from a present smashed together, and add some humor... Well, it's something I will grab immediately and devour it. Though I have to confess, I really didn't think I would enjoy it so much.

It was really entertaining to 'watch', how two different
While this time-travel/historical romance did not make my favorites shelf
it was, nonetheles, an evening well spent traveling thru time to medieval Scotland and experiencing life for a young woman as seen thru the eyes of a 20-the century gal. Always fun to put that kind of twist in a historical and ON a medieval hero. : - } Nomthing really stood out about this particular time-travel as compared to others I've read, and this is why it only achieves an average rating from me of 3-stars.

Holly is transported in time to medieval Scotland where she encounters Duncan, laird of the MacLeod clan. She and Duncan get married the next day, kind of quick right, but they happen to be soul mates. It takes some getting used to yet Holly tries to fit in and deal with the difference in culture, plus she also has to deal with Duncan and his alpha male tendencies which includes heavy amounts of possessiveness and jealousy. It's up to Duncan to convince Holly to stay, but it should be easy for ...more

This was an easy enough book to read but it wasn't particularly detailed. It seemed to be a pretty stock standard time travel romance and while the characters were likeable enough there wasn't enough development to truly know them or their Scottish surrounds. We could have a couple of word changes and Holly could have been in any time since there was very little historical detail to build the world we were reading about. As a result we have a nice enough book but not at all memorable.
I came across this in my Amazon reccomendations and decided to give it a shot. It was a pretty good read. If you are looking for a quick time-travel read then this is probably a good choice for you. The story was pretty good but I felt it was a little bit cheesy at times. I will probably read book 2 just because I want to know if the other brother gets his HEA.

Sorry - I wanted to like it but it just didn't work for me. 2 stars when comparing it to Scottish romances from authors such as Jennifer Ashley, Karen Hawkins Lyndsay Sands etc. The writing was average to say the least. DNF

When I got this book, I thought it was a new one not just a new cover...but that's OK. I really enjoyed the book. Can't wait for Callum's book to come out. I was really glad who he ended up with.
