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 sixteenth-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....

From the Paperback edition.

Baker & Taylor
Seeking an escape from her humdrum and boring life, Gwen Cassidy heads for Scotland in search of adventure, but a plunge into a Highland ravine lands her in the arms of Drustan MacKeltar, a powerful sixteenth-century warrior enchanted by a powerful spell. Original.

Read in two days. Haven't taken it back to the library and already borrowed the e-book version on the next book in this series! Awesome story!!!

alternates between very slyly-dryly funny to really overtly funny, hilarious dialogue. Also, this was very emotionally appealing, I could not put it down, the heroine was riveting, actually all the main characters were. The imagery, the country side descriptions were wonderful, romantic scenes very delicious. Recommend reading the series in order, because they are a deceptively light appetizer for Moning's swooningly-fabulous darker, more apocalyptic Fever series.
This is the kind of book, if you went out with your gal friends to "Magic Mike's Male stripclub" celebrating life's endings & beginnings, and you all brainstorm the ultimate women's action adventure/fantasy/romance novel with much laughter. I also love it that the women heroines & authors are empowered, get to orchestrate and experience delicious romance scenes, no roofie-like or shame/fear-based "fades to black". These books are unlike male-oriented sci-fi/action adventure/fantasy that I'd read from the 1950-2015, where women are victims, sex-slaves, identical clones, incubators, brood mares, don't even get mediocre sex, then are killed, and their bodies used for meat, leather.

It's nice to read a book about a heroine that is independent and has a mind and will of her own. The snarky conversations between the hero and heroine are funny, snarky, and at times sexy. The description of the very precise and allows the reader to paint the setting in their minds without saying too much. Love the setting btw. Mature read for sure

Laugh out loud ridiculous plot, but good fun along the way with lots of passion and a wonderful heroine. Although ridiculous, the plot is intelligent and addresses its weaknesses as is able. Great read!
