After finishing "True to the highlander" I knew I wanted to know Robley's story
I was delighted to find that this book was just as cute as the first. In this story, Robley sets off for an adventure and meets up with Erin who is a 21st century career minded and college educated woman. They develop a quick friendship which evolves into a romance that defies centuries. Their journey is romantic, witty, clever, and magical.
If you like fun and easy listening Highland romances then give whole series a try.

It hasn’t been long since I listened to book one of the same series. The first book was very good, so I settled with anticipation into listening to this one. My readers, author Barbara Longley creates one hilarious read! And with time travel. I loved it!
It was extremely amusing Aaron’s reaction to Robley’s ‘modernization’. I loved how Ms. Langley kept me laughing, whether it was from Robley’s reactions, Aaron’s reaction or to my own seeing the ridiculous situation.
Madame Giselle is back in this story, sending Robley through time. Robley joins us from the 15th century. He had been listening to True for years telling about her home in the future. He needed to know of it himself, so what better way than through Madame Giselle.
Once swept into the 21st century, he readily adjusts. Plus he had his own personal guide, the very lass he dropped onto from the skies. Aaron is no ordinary woman, but one with a gift – easing people’s fears and pain. That’s why she was so good at being a nurse. She was close to finishing her mid-wife certification. Robley’s ‘dropping in’ so to speak was a blessing. He roomed and boarded with her plus she was to help him navigate the waters of a new world insuring she had enough money to pay her bills until she graduated.
What would you think if you were from the 15th century, 584 years in the past and heard words like pissed off, debit card, kidding, in the system, insurance, get out!, jonsing, a shift, going out. These are just a few of the words needing clarification for our Scottish hero.
With Robley’s insatiable need to learn he read one of Eden’s erotic romance books while she was at work. He was totally comical, starting to use 21st century vernacular with his Scottish brogue. Aaron, American, used it of course, plus a lot of words he had no clue what they meant, many medical terms. It really was quite amusing having him question certain turns of phrase and frankly had me laughing out loud. Not just a little, mind you. But guffawing loud enough to have my husband stop his work, come search me out. His comment had me continue laughing. I sounded a bit demented!
The story was one lively episode after the other, Robley learning of the merits of living in the 21st century and enjoying his 'vacation'. Aaron very dutifully taught him to make sure when he pees to lift the seat and out of courtesy put it down. (I kid you not!) Funny times ladies!
Robley had the means to return back to Scotland but as each day past, he felt less inclined to return. Aaron was capturing his heart. Some heavy decisions had to be made, how could he stay, how could he leave? And then fate with the help of an angry fairy make the decision for them.
The story line was fun, the dialog was hugely amusing, although events eventually become dire. All in the day’s work of a good writer. Thank you, Ms. Longley for the wonderful story.
Angela Dawe, with her Scottish accents, portrayal of Madame Giselle, dialog and timing in funny moments, and superb storytelling ability made this listen pure pleasure, binding reader to author.
