The haunting voice of Scottish laird James McLeod summons writer Elizabeth Smith through time to 1311 Scotland. James forbids women at his keep. So he is rather surprised when Elizabeth is deposited in his care, though care isn't what he gives her when they first meet. Lynn Kurland excited readers with her memorable debut novel, Stardust of Yesterday, and her talents shine through again in this delightful time-travel tale of adventure and love.
This book really delivers in the body rippers category! It is a light, fun and clean romance with a happily ever after (HEA) - what more could you ask for?
Elizabeth lies down on a park bench in 1996 and wakes up in 1311 Scotland with a Scottish hunk that is following a tradition of "no women" in his house! Off course he throws her in a dungeon and then shows his tender side by feeling guilty and fishing her out. But Elizabeth is not a meek girl and soon she is holding her own.
There were some inconsistencies in the book though - Elizabeth's 1996 apartment is a mess with dishes and soda cans filling all available surfaces but in her 1311 Scottish castle, she turns into a cleaning goddess (?). But this is not a serious book, so let's not get too technical.
We meet some of Elizabeth and Jamie's family in this, the first in the McLeod Series who will feature in the rest of the series which I will definately read.
