Surely she'd gone completely mad. Claire Manning can't imagine what she was thinking when she decided to help the escapee from her company's lab, but after seeing him caged like an animal, her humanitarian compulsion could not be overridden - even by the arrogant, scowling 18th-century Highlander Hugh Urquhart turned out to be.
His entire life has been taken away from him, and Claire understands the pain and torment of loss. She understands the desperation she sees in his eyes and is prepared to do whatever it takes to secure Hugh's freedom and future. What she isn't prepared for is the ruggedly handsome Scot she finds under the layers of grime and blood caked on him. Nor is she prepared to feel so much more than mere compassion for his suffering.
Contains mature themes.

Not What I Expected!
Several things. The majority of the story is redundant; chapter after chapter of Hugh and Claire's bantering. From the interesting beginning when Hugh falls into a black hole, and the future, finding himself locked in a cage inside a Science Lab I thought it was going to be an exciting book. I was disappointed that after the beginning the only reference to the Lab animals liberated by Hugh and the Indian is that they were recaptured. I wanted to hear more about the fury little animal Claire found in the lab. The impression was given that the Indian Chief was still at large.
It started getting interesting again the last 3-4 hours.
It was OK.
I don't know. Her Narration is characterized by sarcasm. Her mocking sarcastic tone is funny at times but It gets old when used throughout the story as she did in "A Time & Place for Every Laird". She may do better narrating another book.
Yes, to be more careful choosing my next book.
I was expecting something different after listening to the sample and reading the author's summary.
