Sweet read. I listened to it till it got to the end and I had to see what was going to happen and I couldn't wait till I was driving or walking.

Reverse time travel this time. More action and some twists to boot. Loved the characters and we got to meet new ones.

Robley was so funny with his experiencing new things. I laughed at loud. The change for him had to be shocking and wondrous at the same time. His experience riding in a car...had me laughing outloud. He of course stayed true to his macho/
A Review in Two Acts

Act 1 - Robley travels to present day U.S.A.

In book one True to the Highlander Alethia Goodsky was cast back in time to 15th century Scotland where she was taken in by the Clan MacKintosh. While there she used her supernatural gifts as a truth seer and her modern know how to thwart an evil plan by a rival clan.

Now in book two, Robley, one of the bit players in book one with a thirst for adventure has decided he wants to travel to the future, back to where Alethia came from

The Highlander's Bargain is an engrossing, heart grabbing, five star read. The story is well written and pulls you in as soon as you start reading. I was captivated with Robley and Erin's story. I loved that Robley was strong where Erin was weak and vice versa. They just worked so well together. The story was romantic, filled with intrigue, action and a few unexpected twists and turns. I just love when an author catches me off balance and I can say "What?!?" and this happened a few times in The ...more

I loved Robley! He's a man's man, but oh so tender and sweet. A real dream guy. Barbara Longley has a real skill at writing historical Scottish accents that are just enough to give you a flavor of the time without going overboard. A great story with time travel back to Scotland. What a ride!

Modern America through the eyes of a Medieval Scottish warrior. Medieval Scotland through the eyes of a Twenty-First Century woman.

Robley knows it's time to settle down and have a family, but he can't. Not yet. His love for adventure and his desire to see the future are the catalysts for this story. Truly, if he didn't crave adventure like he did, he wouldn't have been so willing to visit a Faerie. Robley's fall through time lands him in Erin's part of America during a Renaissance Faire. He disc

This story is for all of us who love a good mix of romance and adventure with some other-worldly elements thrown in. Robley of clan MacKintosh has a yen to visit the future he's heard about from his cousin's wife, True who traveled to the past in True to the Highlander. True was sent by the faerie known as Madame Giselle. Robley seeks out the faerie and bargains with her for the means to take him to the magical realm of airplanes and televisions.

This is the best time travel historical romance I've ever read. The author did an outstanding job in creating a beautiful love story of two people from different times. You will like the handsome and adorable Robley of clan MacIntosh. He is wanting adventure since Lady True described the miracles of her world. He is finding that his life at home is boring and seeks something new. Robley seeks out the faerie Madame Giselle who tells him to retrieve her stolen property if he wants to travel to ano ...more

The Highlander's Bargain is the second book in the Loch Moigh series but can be read as a stand alone. The characters and events from the first book are often brought up and would probably benefit to read the first book first, but it's not necessary to enjoy this book.

The Highlander's Bargain was an extremely well written book that really transported the reader to the time and place throughout the book. This book has passion, adventure, time travel, faeries, and hot medieval men...what's not to

The time travel adventures of his cousin Malcom's wife Lady True is so exciting and the wonders of the 21st century are too enticing to resist. Young Lord Robley longs for adventure to escape his mundane life as a page for his father and uncle, the laird of clan MacKintosh.

He strikes a bargain with the fortune teller Madame Giselle and embarks on an adventure for more dangerous than he ever dreamed. Will he ever see his family and Scotland again? And what will become of his "braw and canny lass"

First I would like to say I received this book through the goodreads giveaway. I would like to say that I have never read anything from this author before but I will be in the future.

What happens when you put a Highlander in a car and drive on the highway? Hilarity. I felt bad for him, but it was still funny.

Robley's priorities prove you can take a man out of time, but he's still a man. Harley Davidson, indeed!

I felt so bad for Erin. Her mother really messed with her thinking.

Madame Giselle so needs another hobby.

Catching upwith True was great.

I don't want to give too much away, so just read it for yourselves, and enjoy!

I enjoyed this book.

I started slowly and wasn't sure I was going to like this story. The more I read, the better I liked it.
It's a time travel romance and moves from the present to the past several times; just enough to confuse you if you thought about it much.
I hope to read more of Ms Longley's books.

Highlander's Bargain is yet another great time travel story by Barbara Longley. Miss Barbara knows how to write a story! I love this series. This book has great love, romance, and history. I cannot wait for book 3 to release. Five stars

The Highlander's Bargain

I love the novels of Loch Moigh! I can't wait to continue the adventures of my favorite15th century clan. If you enjoy time travel, faeries and romance you will love this series!
I just absolutely loved it. The author just brings a great romance together with awesome time travel. It just was awesome. I laughed, cried and just genuinely loved it!

Audiobook Review:

It hasn’t been long since I listened to book one of the same series. The first book was very good, so I settled with anticipation into listening to this one. My readers, author Barbara Longley creates one hilarious read! And with time travel. I loved it!

It was extremely amusing Aaron’s reaction to Robley’s ‘modernization’. I loved how Ms. Langley kept me laughing, whether it was from Robley’s reactions, Aaron’s reaction or to my own seeing the ridiculous situation.

Robley is a 15th century Scottish noble who yearns for adventure and has a fascination with the future. This leads him to make a bargain with a fae: in exchange for retrieving an object of the fae, the fae will send him to the future for a limited time. Robley obtains the object that the fae desires with no problem, and so the fae helps him go to the 21st century. As soon as he lands in 21st century Minnesota, he meets Erin, who he recognizes immediately as his soulmate. Erin is a grad student a ...more

The first instalment of this series, True to the Highlander, was such a standout book for me this year, it's been a long time since I've enjoyed a time travel romance so well. They're quite often disappointing and amusing for all the wrong reasons, but not so in this case. The Loch Moigh series has all of the good parts of time travel romance; the cute moments as opposites attract, the language barrier funnies, and the many differences and similarities they share across the centuries.

The Highlander's Bargain is the second book in the Loch Moigh series wand this book was as charming, exciting, and engrossing as the first book. In this well-written story we are introduced to Robley of clan MacKintosh and Erin Durie, a 21st century mid-wife. In his insatiable hunger to go to the future, Rob strikes a deal with a tricksy fae and he is sent through time and literally falls into Erin's arms, right in the middle of a Renaissance fair in Minnesota.

What a lovely escape...

I have been devouring The Novels of Loch Moigh! I just love them & can't put them down. Case in point, it's almost 3 am. I finished book 2 about an hour ago & since I'm having trouble sleeping (though at this point, the question as to whether I'm reading because I'm having trouble sleeping or having trouble sleeping because I'm reading is entirely up for debate), I'm going to start on Book 3. Yes, I have a lot to do tomorrow (today) & should lay my head upon my

This was an entertaining read. It takes you between the 15th century and today quite seamlessly without too much vertigo. Erin helps Robley in the 21st century and he settles in nicely enjoying our "hogs" and a few other modern technologies. What is a modern woman to do without all the gadgets when the tables are turned and Erin finds herself in the 15th century? Barbara Longley has brought problems to the surface of what each would face if staying in either century and what the benefits would b ...more

***ARC from NetGalley in Exchange for an honest review***

This was a highly anticipated 2nd book for me as I loved the first one (True to the Highlander). I was looking forward to revisiting characters from the first novel, and this provided some but nor nearly enough of that for me. But then, any more and this wouldn't have made it a good it is, I don't think it suffers if you have not read the first one.

The characters in this one came alive for me as well but not to the extent
