Quick smooth read
Choosing the Highlanders is a story that takes readers through time to provide the perfect combination of love, drama, action, and magic! The characters were well developed and easily relatable.
It was a quick and smooth read. I loved it. I rate it with 4 Boundless Stars.
Choosing A Highlander
What a darling love story! This was my favorite book of the Highland Wishes Series. It made me laugh, cry and smile often. There were some nail-biting moments and some heartache at times. Not to worry, later there was much soothing with sweet, sensual, passionate and
loving sex. Hats off to Jesse! A perfect ending.
Well written time travel story
I liked this book a lot. The plot made as much sense as a time travel/magic story can. It was believable.
I was really struck with the transition of a 1980's feminist and independent woman to a 15th century woman. The author handled this with a great deal of insight, I thought. After all, a truly successful, modern woman should be adaptable to her surroundings,right?
There was fun as well as tragedy. No typos that I can remember. The story flowed well and the magic wasn't silly. I would have liked more angst and less love at first sight but not enough to reduce the rating.
I liked the second and third books in the series more than the first. They're all stand alone novels. no cliff hangers.
