Ellies having the best day shes had since her mother died recently. Ellie escapes to the river and while shes there she makes a wishto find her true love and perhaps a Highlander of my own. So when his mother decides Ellie has been sent for love, Caden figures she must be here for one of his brothers. The juxtaposition of Ellies modern ways against Cadens medieval sensibilities was used in places to further the plot instead of just cause romantic problems. If I thought Mayhue had intended this for anything but light-hearted romance, I would be a bit critical of the lack of survival and language problems this difference causedbut hey, this is a romance and it works just fine!
In the previous novel in the series a member of the original family that sparked the series goes back in time and meets the MacAlisters, and now its all about them. One girl makes a wish (good I wish mine would come true that easily) and she lands right in the middle of where she needs to be. Mainly because she meets Caden MacAlister who is determined to believe that he can never find true love. This novel is truly another great read that makes me need to continue the series. But the fact that he fights for his family makes me love him.
STORY BRIEF: Over the years, several faeries from the royal family married humans and had descendants, who did not know about their faerie heritage and had no magic abilities. He wants Ellie to sleep with him or leave. Because of her faerie powers, she is transported back in time to Scotland where she meets Caden. Ellie brings interesting knowledge regarding animals and sheep ranching. REVIEWERS OPINION: After the first intimate scene, Ellie lied about something which bothered me. That was my major problem, conflict due to vague communication.
Lol too bad though, Sallie would have been a great character for the future. At the same time back in Scotland, 1304, Caden MacAlister is having his own problems, with his brother held for ransom, the laird missing, he sees a mysterious woman in his stables. Knowing the history of his family and the Fae, Caden thinks Ellie was sent by the Fae for one of his brothers, as he has no desire to be involved with anything sent by the Fae. This book was different then the others. I loved her with Caden, but at times he would annoy me, being so determined to push Ellie to his brothers. I enjoyed and laughed at times with her conversations with Missy and Baby. Baby was a big dog, he went to rescue Caden, then went back to Ellie for help. I loved the way Sallie gave her knives to Ellie to use, and how she eventually did use them. Great ending, great plan by Rosalyn to get everyone united in helping to force Caden and Ellie together finally.
Originally I thought the first book Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband sounded promising but upon reading it discovered that it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. But by this time I was interested in the family in the books and this title seemed to sound better and was getting better reviews. So with all that is going on you would think Mayhue would lose track of things including the love story but she definitely manages to balance it all while getting a little revenge over on the man who stole Ellie's ranch in the beginning. As it stands, I'll probably opt for anymore books in this series but while I've really enjoyed this book I'm not planning on keeping it but instead will be swapping it in hopes of getting another book to read.
Ellie is determined to get back to her own time. Caden's mother Rosalyn tries to tell Ellie that she won't be able to return until she has done what she has been sent to do. Caden is determined Ellie will marry another, and Ellie is unsure whether to seek out her true love or focus on returning home to Texas. Sparks fly with Caden and Ellie that is pure magic.
Fighting his attraction, Caden insists she's meant for one of his brothers. With his history, he has no desire for a woman in his life -- especially a woman sent by the Fae. Only the magic of the Fae can determine whether Ellie will find a Highlander of her own... Loved Ellie she made me laugh through the whole book.
I mean, all those muscles and the way they swing their swords. It was a fun time travel romp that plopped a modern day woman into the arms of a man who's used to wearing the pants. A fun, fast read that gave me a bunch of sword swinging Highlanders and the women who foil them.
Turns out there is treachery afoot and Caden wants nothing to do with Ellie. A great and heartfelt romance that travels into the emotional underbelly of Caden and Ellie's love.
