Description

From RITA winner Gwyn Cready comes a Scottish time travel romance perfect for fans of Outlander

Modern day battle reenactor Duncan MacHarg thinks he has it made-until he lands in the middle of a real Highland battle and comes face to face with the clan's beautiful, spirited leader. Out of time and out of place, Duncan must use every skill he can muster to earn his position among the clansmen and in the heart of the devastatingly intriguing woman to whom he must pledge his oath.

Abby needs a hero and she needs him now. Duncan's a man with no measurable battle skills and a damnably distracting smile. But she sees in him a fighting spirit, and Abby will do whatever it takes to turn him into a Scots warrior herself-one demanding and intimate lesson at a time.

Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands Series:
Just in Time for a Highlander (Book 1)
First Time with a Highlander (Book 2)
Every Time with a Highlander (Book 3)

        Starred review from December 15, 2014
        Cready’s first Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands time-travel romance is a gripping, passionate tale full of magic and yearning. A spell goes slightly awry and transports Duncan, a modern-day businessman, to tempestuous 1706 Scotland. Abby, the beautiful, fearless chieftess of Clan Kerr, is beset by worry as the English continue to maneuver for the Act of Union. Furthermore, her clan faces bankruptcy, and she reluctantly considers marrying the rich leader of a rival clan. Duncan’s unexpected entrée into this harsh world is unsettling for both; Duncan knows close to nothing about warfare, and Abby must explain this strange man’s sudden appearance to her skeptical clan. Their mutual attraction leads to primal, earth-shattering trysts that engender deep affection and hope. Cready’s highly satisfying creation is filled with humor, witty dialogue, double entendres, and clever schemes, and a wonderful cast of imaginative characters keeps this twisty story lively to the end. Agent: Claudia Cross, Folio Literary Management.

        January 1, 2015
        RITA Award winner and master of time-travel romance Cready (Timeless Desire, 2012) has done it again. Scottish-born New Yorker Duncan is in the middle of a war reenactment in Pittsburgh when a misguided spell sends him back some 300 years to his ancestral home on the borderlands between Scotland and England. He lands in the middle of a real-life battle between the English and Clan Kerr. The leader of Clan Kerr is the beautiful Lady Abby Kerr, who needs a strong arm not only to help her save the clan from the English but also from financial ruin. Duncan offers to be that man but fails at every attempt, except when it comes to winning her heart. In that he will triumph, despite his misguided efforts to do what is right for the clan. Political intrigue, young spies, an embezzling estate manager, and a witch add to the fun.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
