Synopsis:

For Duncan MacHarg, things just got real...
Battle reenactor and financier Duncan MacHarg thinks he has it made-until he lands in the middle of a real Clan Kerr battle and comes face to face with their beautiful, spirited leader. Out of time and out of place, Duncan must use every skill he can muster to earn his position among the clansmen and in the heart of the devastatingly intriguing woman to whom he must pledge his oath.
Abby needs a hero and she needs him now
When Abigail Ailich Kerr sees a handsome, mysterious stranger materialize in the midst of her clan's skirmish with the English, she's stunned to discover he's the strong arm she's been praying for. Instead of a tested fighter, the fierce young chieftess has been given a man with no measurable battle skills and a damnably distracting smile. And the only way to get rid of him is to turn him into a Scots warrior herself-one demanding and intimate lesson at a time.

Just in Time for a Highlander (Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands, #1)My Review
Just in Time for a Highlander Gwyn Cready 

Be careful what or who you wish for, you may just get more than you bargained for! Time travel, a hot guy in a kilt and a young woman with the weight of her clan on her shoulders, add an ill-timed wish and the arrow of an enemy and POOF-one magical spell is cast! Just in Time for a Highlander by Gwyn Cready is a light-hearted romp through time as one Wall Street Warrior finds that pushing paper and re-enacting Scottish history is far less dangerous than the real thing as he is hauled back in time to18th century Scotland. You think women have it tough today in a man’s world, try being the chieftess of a clan of warriors, during a pivotal time in history as the English pursue victory over Scotland.

If only war and testosterone were all Abby Kerr had to deal with, there is so much more, like bad investments, embezzlement, an ailing father and an offer of marriage that promises to save her clan, financially. Enter Duncan, literally, as he pops into existence, handsome, strange and definitely not a seasoned warrior, but here is something magical between them. Is it possible that Duncan’s modern life holds the key to the past?

Sit back and forget everything else, forget what may or may not be under those kilts, enjoy a light read that uncovers a tale of unlikely love, secrets, deceit and that for once, the hot guy in the kilt is not a knuckle-dragging, overpowering sex god, but he actually has a brain! Kind of makes you want to cheer for brains, not brawn and a good stiff wind, strictly for kilt research, of course.

I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.

  2. Thanks for a great (and very funny) review. If I could time travel, I think I'd want to visit Jane Austen. How about you?
