Publisher's Summary

A laird trapped between centuries... Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.
Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side.
A woman changed forever in his arms....
Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern - to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she'd ever seen? Or that once he'd kissed her, he wouldn't let her go?
Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to 16th-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them...and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves.

Trashy but fun novel with lots of sex, time travel

I didn't realize until a bit into this novel that it is trashy chick-lit. I'm a middle age guy, which makes this not really my genre. I thought I was getting a good time travel story (I'm a sucker for those). The amount of sex and the fairy-tale-ish romanticism of it was too much for me. I found myself constantly groaning and rolling my eyes, BUT I also got sucked into this trashy story and enjoyed it. Siskell and Ebert used to have their annual "guilty pleasure" movie review show. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars on this, but I did like it and feel appropriately embarrassed by that. I guess this is my guilty pleasure. A modern day genius-science-nerd-virgin falls in love with a 16th century Scottish nobleman and warrior after he awakes from a centuries-long sleep. This romantic adventure is full of misunderstandings, and is totally manipulative, but still worked in entertaining me. If you are not completely turned off my my review, you are probably a woman looking for a guilty pleasure read and will most likely love this novel. The reader was very good.

Could stand alone in the series

Nice romance, mild suspense with time-travel historical basis. The male narrator is fabulous (I mean "wow" fabulous) with hero's voice, but it took some time getting used to his female lead's voice. I enjoyed the general time travel and romance story line, but the heroine's initial motive for romance was somewhat irritating (she wanted to get her "cherry plucked" - repeatedly noted).

Although part of a series - this story could easily stand alone. It was certainly good enough that I immediately purchased others in the series!
