When Ashley Miller sees a Craigslist ad for an all-expense-paid vacation to Scotland with a handsome Highland “escort”, she’s all over it. Worn out from working two jobs to pay off the debts her scam artist ex-husband left her with, she just needs a friggin’ break already. Rolling, misty mountains of the Scottish Highlands, here she comes!
But one minute, she’s sipping a latte and the next, she’s zapped to the 2nd century and promptly informed she’s managed to wed her handsome Highlander without even an “I do.” Oh, hell no.
After a devastating tragedy, Connall’s tribe is left with few marriageable women. When his Druid priest suggests a place filled with bonnie lasses, he, of course, agrees to go fetch one for himself. But nothing prepared Connall for his sassy new wife, nor his tribe for a woman determined to see equal rights for all women.
Now the men are threatening revolt if he can’t rein his young wife in, but it might be too late. The women are demanding the men get “woke”—which of course makes no sense because they already woke that morn—and give women “the vote,” whatever the bloody hell that is. Despite all that, Connall can’t stop wanting to convince his wife to get naked, and he’s starting to wonder if he’s been bewitched.
Only the more he gets to know her, the more he starts to think she’s just what they needed. If only he survives her next demand…
I liked the premise for this book, the time travel aspect is something I love and is rarely done. I’m not a fan of early historical settings so that probably had an impact on my rating. I loved the scenes set in present-day, but once they travelled back in time, I lost interest.
If you like early historical settings then this a book for you as for me I might give the author another chance if there are different settings.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
