Beth decides to explore the castle attics and unwittingly discovers their method of time-travel. But the Travis she meets is a changed man, now driven by revenge and set on annihilating all his enemies. He has too much violence and bloodshed to contend with and has no time in his life for another woman from the future.
Despite this a great love grows, a love that must overcome many obstacles before reaching its conclusion. In Book 1, The Laird, we met Travis, his family, and his clansmen, in Book 2 Travis, we are reunited with them.
This is a terrific story. Ms. McGill has created two dynamic characters whose stubborn passions cause them many problems. Throw in the fact that they come from two different time periods and you have a delightful read full of the violence of the time, intrigue, passion, and heartache. Beth is a quiet but feisty woman of the twenty-first century. Travis is the Laird of all he surveys and rules his people with a fair but firm hand, putting the protection of his people above all else, including himself. I really enjoyed this story. Beth and Travis are a team; forging a bond that even time cannot break. In a time of extreme violence and danger, they create their own oasis of peace in each other’s arms. If you need an escape, travel to Scotland in the year 1051 with Beth and put reality aside for a while. Patricia Oshier Bruening TRS
Multi-published author Tricia McGill does it again! You can’t help but fall in love with her Highlander chief, Travis, the masterful clan leader in 1051 Scotland from her previous book.
Even without running water and central heating this time-travel novel will make you wish you could be transported back into Travis’ castle… for a good, old fashioned candle lit romance. If you’ve ever fallen in love with a man in a portrait painting, that’s what happened to Beth.
What she hadn’t expected was the intense feuding and fighting between the clans, and the harsh conditions found in 1051 Scotland. Still, Beth must make up her mind whether or not to return to the present... or brave it out and stay in the past with her Highland lover...
This is a fast paced action tale of the rough conditions of bygone days, and the man Beth couldn’t leave behind. JoEllen Congar
I absolutely love this book. There are so many things that I want to say about it, but I am going to stick to the basics or I will have a ten page review!
Beth Anderson has all of the qualities a great heroine should possess. She is beautiful, charming, has a great sense of humor and a sense of adventure that she didn't realize she had. She is drawn up into the attic of her friend's castle to where a cape lays, a cape that supposedly drew her friend back in time to the man of her dreams.
Travis... Ooooh, baby! Travis! He is as hot as his name, through and through. He knows who is boss, and, future woman or not, Beth is going to know that too! But, he doesn't count on her getting under his skin, and that just plain ticks him off.
I love everything about this book. The play of emotions and the battle of wills between this couple keep this book flowing very smoothly. I don't think Ms. McGill could have done it any better, even if she had wanted to, although I don't think perfection can be improved upon—and that is absolutely what this book is. Pure perfection.
…enchanting and light, but also filled with all of the good old-fashioned emotions that we all love in our romance novels. Heck, that's the reason we read them! This flashy, spirited woman and her big, hunky Highlander have compl
