Present-day North Carolina sings with the passions of the Scottish Highlands as a fiery, time-traveling Celtic warrior takes a stubborn tour guide for a wild ride.
Haunted by lost love, Grant MacDara still dreams of tenth-century Scotland. Nothing can soothe his aching heart—until a sharp-tongued, redheaded beauty leads a tour of senior citizens through his family’s North Carolina theme park, Highland Life and Legends. Though she’s the polar opposite of the lass he left behind, Joanna Martin is the most irresistible woman Grant has ever met. But when he decides that she’s worth the risk of loving again, he tries so hard to hold her close that she nearly slips through his fingers.
Forced out of her job as a pharmaceutical sales rep by a conniving ex, Joanna is trying to make the best of her quiet new life. But one glimpse of Grant—who wields an ancient hammer like it’s just another appendage of his chiseled body—convinces Joanna not to give up on love. The one thing she can’t do is outrun her past as a loser magnet. And although Grant seems to be the last honorable man left on earth, this mouthwatering stud needs a crash course in twenty-first-century women before Joanna can trust him with her heart.

Greyson's spicy, pleasurable second Highland Protector historical (after Sadie's Highlander) picks up 16 years after the goddesses have transported the MacDara druid family from 10th-century Scotland to 21st-century North Carolina. From their headquarters in the medieval park of Highland Life and Legends, the MacDaras safeguard the Heartstone, on which humankind's well-being depends. Hunky Grant MacDara pursues sexy tour guide Joanna Martin, determined to make her his own. For readers willing to accept the unabashedly silly premise, the story offers plentiful entertainment, including galvanic attraction and steamy sex scenes between two appealing and well-matched lovers, witty banter, and a delightful cast of supporting characters, particularly Joanna's high-octane geriatric clients. When Grant reluctantly reveals his family legacy to Joanna, as "she must be brought before the stone" before he can marry her, she fears her penchant for picking losers continues, believing Grant to be "crazy-ass, possibly drug-using or if he didn't use drugs now he probably needed to start." Once she accepts the bizarre truth and the two of them get through an unconvincing tacked-on subplot threatening their newfound commitment, this rollicking cross-cultural love story offers much to enjoy.
It’s a good read.
I voluntarily read an Advance Review Copy of this book through Netgalley. This book is a continuation of the MacDara clan as it thrives in this century after having travel from the 900 hundreds. After a year and a half, Grant has finally decided to see if he and Joanna might have a future together. The book is full of humor, especially with the elderly ladies playing matchmaker. The book is well written and there is a HEA. It is a good read and I would recommend it in this series.
Another terrific story in the Highland Protector series. Maeve Greyson does an excellent job writing about ancient Scots in modern times. Her characters are fully developed and she combines the paranormal aspect of her story with the reality of today in a believable plot. I look forward to the next book in this series.
