True to the Highlander(Loch Moigh, #1)
By Barbara Longley
Treachery rules the Highlands of 1423. With their king captured by the English, Scottish nobles plot to ransom James behind the back of the brutal regent holding their land in his iron grip. But not every clan wishes to see King James back on his throne…
Sitting atop this powder keg of bloodthirsty rivalries, Malcolm of clan MacKintosh takes the mysterious, lone maiden he finds along his road as a bad omen…though an undeniably beautiful one. When he attempts to save her from a rogue within his own garrison, she deftly brings Malcolm to his knees. Who is this willful lass who has so quickly laid siege to his heart?
Alethia Goodsky has met all kinds working at the New York Renaissance Festival, but no one like the fortune-teller who tasks her with a cryptic life-saving mission and flings her into the fifteenth century. Now Alethia must rely on her wits to unravel the mystery in this violent land. Malcolm has sworn to protect her, but her gifts may soon make her his protector. With enemies closing in, Alethia must choose between finding a way home…and remaining true to her Highlander.
Great story. I listened to the story on my way to work and walking.
Started slow dragged some, but overall kept me wanting to know what was going to happen.
Malcolm was humorous at times and I loved how True put him in his place. He did only have her interest in mind. He was steadfast with his love of her even in the face of leaving everything. The time travel was interesting and that gypsy woman is a ton of trouble. I am sure she will be a continuing factor in the series,
There is a ton of action. Everyone is in peril all the time it seems.
A sweet time traveler romance.
