He’ll help a woman in need, no matter where she came from…
Alysandir Mackinnon rules his clan with a fair but iron fist. He has no time for softness or, as he sees it, weakness. But when he encounters a bewitching young beauty who may or may not be a dangerous spy, but is surely in mortal danger, he’s compelled to help.
She’s always wondered if she was born in the wrong time…
Thrown back in time to the tumultuous, dangerous Scottish Highlands of the sixteenth century, Isobella Douglas has a lot to learn about her ancestors, herself, and her place in the world. Especially when she encounters a Highland laird who puts modern men to shame.
Each one has secrets to keep, until they begin to strike a chord in each other’s hearts that’s never been touched before.

Meh...it's just ok
I like the whole time traveling theme but the details are often scant and murky. It skips around a lot and something's just don't make sense. It's not cohesive and quite often it veers so far from reality that I was left asking myself what just happened. Isabelle seems to just accept that her sister is missing and is ok, like really? The reason Alisandir doesn't want to remarry is thin and flimsy. He resists the idea of marriage for most of the book and then in a single sentence he changes his mind. (Pained look). His rejection of his son is also thin and trite. I'm still not sure why he decided to just reject an infant.
I think this could have been better if more attention to detail was paid instead of constantly skipping time in a single sentence. Sorry to say its just ok, not great.
