BOOK REVIEW- MY SEDUCTIVE HIGHLANDER
Though part of a legacy of time-traveling sisters, Lilia Sinclair is planted firmly in twenty-first-century Edinburgh. Her granny’s matchmaking with thirteenth-century Highlanders isn’t about to lure her into the past, especially as ancient Scotland enters troubled times. After all, Lilia is blessed—or cursed—with dire prophetic visions. To protect herself, she’s put up an icy emotional wall no man could cross—until a pair of gorgeous, rippling arms breaks right through.
Graham MacTavish is pure trouble. Once the dragon bound to Loch Ness, he’s transformed into a philanderer of the first order. In fact, because of his dalliances with other men’s wives, a rival clan wants his head on a pike. Before he provokes an all-out war, Graham is banished to the twenty-first century, where he must win Lilia’s hand—or return to die. But after meeting a lass as fierce as any Highland warrior, Graham knows one thing: life with Lilia, in any century, is a fate to embrace. AMAZON 4 STARS
I was surprised that I found myself smiling often as I read this book.
Graham was so over his head when it came to dealing with his new time zone and Lilia. But it wasn't very long though before I was pulling for him to win her over. A lot of my smiling and some laughter came from Graham and his partner in crime, Angus. Their reactions to some of the newfangled things in their new world was hilarious. First car ride? Funny!
There is magic, danger,romance, good friends, and finally a HEA. This book rounds up all the sisters and shows how they each satisfy Granny by all having their lives on track. Everything she ever wanted. Interesting danger and twist at the end.
Speaking of good friends, Vivienne and Alberti really fit that bill. Vivienne was hilariously her own person and carried it out in fun ways.
Even Angus in his rough, clumsy, often unthinking ways was a friend of sorts.
Yes, there will be sex. Yes, there will sexual innuendo and words.
Even though I do not believe in animal familiars, that was not a huge part of the book but it was implied. That made me a bit uncomfortable when I recognized that but was glad it wasn't a big part of the book. There is other magic elements to the story which made it believable as their family being time runners.
On a side note, I really smiled when the author mentioned how much she appreciated her husband being her supporter for over 35 years. The smile came in, when she said that he learned not to throw sticky notes away that were filled with strange phrases. Sounds like he learned it the hard way.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
