From the “master of time travel romance”: Award-winning author Gwyn Cready continues her steamy Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands series
She needs a man—but only for a night
What do you get when you imbibe centuries-old whiskey—besides a hangover the size of the Highlands? If you’re twenty-first century ad exec Gerard Innes, you get swept back to 18th-century Edinburgh and into the bed of a gorgeous, fiery redhead. Gerard has only a foggy idea what he and the lady have been up to…but what he does remember draws him into the most dangerous and exhilarating campaign of his life.
Be careful what you wish for…
Serafina Seonag Fallon’s scoundrel of a fiancé has left her with nothing, and she’s determined to turn the tables. If she can come up with a ringer, she can claim the cargo he stole from her. But the dashing man she summons from the future demands more than a night, and Serafina finds it easier to command the seas under her feet than the crashing waves he unleashes in her heart.
Praise for Just in Time for a Highlander:
“Highly satisfying… filled with humor, clever schemes, and a wonderful cast of imaginative characters.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review.
“Wonderfully entertaining…romantic and wickedly witty…Cready has outdone herself.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
“RITA Award winner and master of time-travel romance Cready has done it again... Political intrigue, young spies, an embezzling estate manager, and a witch add to the fun.” —Booklist
Cready plays to her strengths in this dashing, breathtaking, and extremely sexy time-travel romp. Serafina Fallon is a fallen woman in 1706 Scotland who needs a good man to help reclaim her fortune and her reputation. When she prematurely casts a spell meant to help her, she gets more than she bargained for. Advertising copywriter Gerard Innes is a 21st-century New Yorker with a knack for the ladies. He is less than thrilled to find himself in a distant place and time, with only the vaguest of memories of how he spent his first night there. Gerard's talent with words helps him dodge most of the problems caused by abrupt time travel, but nothing has him prepared for the fiery Scotswoman who sweeps him off his feet. As for Serafina, she's not sure she's ready to trust any man again, let alone a charming serial seducer like Gerard even if he is fetching in a kilt. The twisting plot makes a headlong rush to a delightful conclusion.
