I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It is a story of time travel and finding that one true love that is meant for only you. At the same time, it is a lesson in forgiveness, and is shown in two main examples: Amy and Craig, the main lesson in 1307 Scotland, but also Amy and her father, in the present day. This brings a sense of completion twice near the end of the book and the whole story brought me a huge feeling of satisfaction.
A great novel and I can’t wait to read the next in the series – Highlander’s Hope.
I'm extremely picky about the books I read. Most of the time if it's a free download I'll read the first chapter then skim the book. This book I enjoyed. A great storyline and likeable characters. I read it in one sitting. EXTREMELY unusual for me. Sex scenes weren't over the top, because the book was about the characters.
i had only two minor complaints, 1) the use of Bang, clang, and boom, made the fighting/training lackluster. Descriptions of movements with reactions would have added to the flavor of the scenes. 2) the teenage-sounding sex scenes. Every time I read "oh Craig," during the sex scenes, I kept thinking, for a divorced woman from the future, her vocabulary is rather limited in the bedroom. It was pretty much the only thing she said when the hero made love to her. She clearly wasn't inexperienced, but she sure sounded like it. I felt like I was reading sex scenes from a new adult book. In fact, they reminded me of the eye rolling I did while reading Fifty Shades of Gray when Anastasia's constantly says "oh my" when she's having sex with Christian. HOWEVER, this book's sex scenes are far superior in writing to FSOG, just wish the heroine had acted a little more mature.
Over all, my objections were out-weighed by the strong storytelling, likeable characters, and the unique method of time travel. I'd recommend this as a good time travel for those who enjoy the subgenre, and want a good book to read.
I think this is one of Ms. Stone's better time travel novels. I can only give 4 stars because it was clear to me early on (not to Amy) that Hamish was the spy and she shouldn't trust him. I also didn't like her dishonestly not only about the time travel but also everything else that was going on and how much hurt she was causing Craig. Could he really forgive her?
Amy travels 700 years in the past in a Scottish castle. The castle is conquered by Craig and his clan. Amy is a member of the clan that owned the castle. Craig distrusts Amy. This story is filled with action and betrayal. Both Amy and Craig have painful pasts they must overcome. Amy does not fall for Craig immediately. She becomes attracted to gin over time. I look forward to the rest of the series.
Rousing good story. Amy travels almost a 1000 years into the past into the Scotland of Robert the Bruce. There she meets Craig. What happens from there is the best part of their story. With battles, wicked villians, honest peasants and mighty scottish warriors the saga unfolds. This is one entertaining book.
