This was a very sweet romance. It reminded me of the Taming of the Shrew. Conner is a hot Scotish man in a kilt who has met his match with Kate. She's from the future entering a time when woman were submissive in every way to a man. He's a respected Laird and Kate is a sassy spunky no holds bard woman. He likes her because she's different. Great character building from the author.

Title:Second Chance with a Highlander

Second Chance with a Highlander was a great 4 star read.

I am not even sure where to start with this review. The way the book starts and where it goes is great and just tugs at your heart.

Kate wakes up in a different time injured and in extreme pain, she is not sure how she got there. The last thing she remembers is being in a hospital bed. She is found by Connor and his men, he brings her back to his castle to be cared for. Connor finds

Actual Rating 3.70

This book was so hard for me to rate because I loved Dark Rider so much and I was so excited to jump into this book. I did not like this book as much as Dark Rider and it could be because I started this book immediately after. I felt a little disappointed with this book because of Kate's character. I still gave this book 4 stars because I felt that despite not caring for Kate, I really enjoyed the story.

I liked that Kate is from the future and is dying. When she di

I wasn’t sure how this story was going to go with the way we started – but Kate is dying of cancer and prays for a miracle. In the hospital, she loses consciousness, and she realizes it’s time – but right when the peace of the darkness begins to envelope her, she’s tossed back into life, into a body in medieval Scotland – in a body that has been tortured. When she is found by Connor and taken back to his castle, she realizes that she’s dreamed of Connor and her soul is at peace with him.

This is the first book in the Highland Chance series but I read it after I read book two, Highland Tides by Chance but honestly, they are stand alone books, although this is the back story of couple one. If you like Scottish time travel you will love this book.

This is the story of Kate and Conner. Kate is dying of cancer and she prays for a miracle. She gets it but not in the way she was praying for. As she lays dying, she wakes up in the body of another girl from long ago Scotland. It's Conner

Kate has spent a lot of her young life fighting illness. Now she has resigned herself to death. She just wishes she was not alone in the world. If only she could have actually met the man she sees in her dreams.
Conner MacDavrett is livid when he discovers a seriously wounded young woman outside his castle.
Anyone who can treat someone like this doesn't deserve to live.
Our heroine knows exactly what has happened to her, but can't tell those around her. Can she take this second chance?.

What can i say this book had it all for me there was a good plot to follow, great characters, plus a kick ass woman ( I do love a strong woman lead ) sexy Scottish men, and a twist to follow.

I loved this book and can not wait for the next instalment ( 3rd book as i read the 2nd before this one ) be excited to see what happens next!!

This was different! It was difficult to read with the Scottish accent written in, but the story was good. Kate gets to have a second chance. Who wouldn't want that!? Conner and Kate find each other and it's instant interest. I'm going to read book 2 now!

I'm a huge fan of historical time travel novels where I can escape back to the richness of the past. This novel didn't disappoint although more depth in description of the time, place and the people would to me have taken this book from good into great. Fast, easy, enthralling read.

Kate was on her deathbed and then went back to the Highland days! Where woman were suppose to hold their tounges And do what they say. Kate has to much spunk for that..

I loved this book - a blend of time travel and second chance romance, well woven. I like the Scottish dialogue, not overly heavy that I can't understand what's being said. I'm not a stickler for the linguistics, but if I can understand what the characters are saying, that's plenty good for me! Kate finds Connor in her new "afterlife" and gets a new leash on life, although she doesn't know why she keeps having snippets of memories she's unfamiliar with. An adventurous journey with some good roman ...more

This is a great virgin romance that is gripping. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. This is about a young woman who lost her mom and was bringing up her 2 teenagers brothers on her own and is in need of extra money so she goes for a job interview that changes everything about her life. This is a very descriptive book that gives you a very good image of the characters and where the story is set.

Great book!!! You'll not regret buying this!
This book has all the appealing elements; romance, love, intrigue, second chance, suspense.
This story is different in the way that modern life is entwined with historical.
But you'll love it!

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Second Chance with a Highlander is about a woman named Kate that has cancer and gets a second chance at life and love. It is a very sweet and sexy romance that I did not want to put down and can't wait to read again.

This was my first book by Sarah (S.R.) Mitchell and it will definitely not be the last.

This is a good book for anyone who believes in God, the power of love, and second chances.

Second Chance with a Highlander is a four star book by Sarah Mitchell. Cancer, such an ugly word. Full of dashed dreams and broken promises for a young woman. Her parents always told her she could do anything but beating this rare form of brain cancer was not in the cards. As she lay in the hospital dying, she prays and prays hard to God that he would somehow give her a second chance in life. She is not prepared to die. She has not yet fallen in love or had children. This is what saddens her mos ...more

I had forgotten how much I love historical romance! Sarah Mitchell does an amazing job with this story. There are twists that you just don’t see coming but are so so good! With this story one can believe in fate and a love that knows no time.

True love really can transcend time.

Until that moment comes and she feels her soul whisked away to another time and place. Waking up in a familiar but newer body that is bruised, bloody and half-starved, can she survive this second chance before it's even started? Connor is caught completely off guard by the small, wisp of a woman that colla
