Single-and-pregnant museum worker Melanie voices an idle wish while examining a Scottish artifact, that a Highland warrior would sweep her off her feet and help her forget her cheating ex. The last thing she expects is for her wish to be granted. Magically transported to the middle of a clan skirmish in the sixteenth-century Highlands, she comes face to face with her kilted fantasy man.
Tall, handsome, and heir to his uncle's lairdship, Darcy Keith should be the most eligible bachelor in Ackergill. Instead, thanks to a prank played on him in his teenage years, he is known for being too large under his kilt to ever make a proper husband. "Big Darcy" runs his deceased father's windmills and lives alone at his family manor, believing he will never marry.
But a strangely dressed woman he rescues from a clan skirmish makes him long for more. When the woman's claims of coming to Ackergill by magic reach the laird's ears, she is accused of witchcraft. Darcy determines to protect her any way he can, even if it means binding her to him forever.

Wishing for a highlander
Couldn't put it down.
Wishing For A Highlander
What an amazing story to read! It's hard to find many books in this time period that grip the heart the way this book does.....Definitely a must read. I look forward to future books by Jessi Gage.
Wishing for a Highlander… Awesome Read
What a lovely and unique time travel romance! Haven't we all wished for something we never dreamed we would have, and so it went for Melanie. Though life can be full of surprises, I doubt she ever expected hers. I like the way the author slid in the concept of magic. Perhaps one has to believe to actually experience it in one of its many forms. The narrator did an outstanding job with the various characters and their brogues. She really brought to life the wonderful characters developed by Ms. Gage. Though this was my first book/audio book by this author, it won't be the last! I have book 2 of this series waiting on my kindle. This is a book I didn't want to put down, and an audio I'd classify as amazing.
