She can work her magic on any man
In a quest to bring peace to her beloved Scottish borderlands, fortune-teller and spy Undine Douglas agrees to marry a savage English colonel. Desperate to delay the wedding long enough to undermine the army’s plans, Undine casts a spell to summon help and unexpectedly finds herself under the imperious gaze of the handsome and talented Michael Kent, twenty-first century British theater director.

But in this production, he commands the action
Though he abandoned acting years ago, Michael will play whatever part it takes to guard Undine’s safety—he’s used to managing London’s egocentric actors and high-handed patrons, after all. But not even Shakespeare could have foreseen the sparks that fly when the colonel’s plans force Undine and Michael into the roles of their lifetimes.

(Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands, #3)
Every Time with a Highlander (Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands, #3)They say not to mess with Mother Nature, but Undine just wouldn’t listen and blended a love potion for another couple. Too bad the dastardly English Colonel John Bridgewater took it, drank it and fell for the first woman he saw, Undine. A formidable spy and fortune teller, somehow this little event went under her radar and she is trapped into having to marry the fiend to bring peace to her people. She was desperate for help, so doing a summoning seemed the best thing to do, yeah, because that potion worked out so well, eh? Little did she realize she would summon her hero from the twenty-first century in the form of a handsome and quick-witted British theater director, Michael Kent.

A master of improvisation, gifted in all things acting, Michael is about to do the performance of his life in order to save this plucky woman he has fallen for. Guess all those years of handling the egos of the wealthy as well as the vanities of the actors may come in handy, if they are both to live.

Come for the magic, the humor and the danger, step back in time when men were men, even if they wore skirts, I mean kilts and the women knew how to handle them! Gwyn Cready’s Every Time with a Highlander is fun fantasy with feisty characters, evil villains and an alpha male who can make Shakespearian thespians look like understudies in the theater of life, love, passion and fate.

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