    Love this series

    Once again, Mayhue delivers a great Highland romance. Mixing in time travel, magic, romance and the sheer stubborness of men, this book is just as good as the previous three. I have enjoyed reading this series and anyone that likes Highlanders, time-travel or romance will enjoy these books, too.

    A Highlander of Her Own by Melissa Mayhue

    Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release Feb09<BR/><BR/>What is it that I like so much about Melissa Mayhue¿s books? From the very first one, ¿Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband¿, there is just something about her writing that pulls me in and keeps me coming back for more. Her heroines are strong and determined and don¿t do stupid things that require a man to save them¿nope, they do just as much saving, in their own way, as any of the heroes in her books. Yet the men certainly aren¿t weak or spineless. Au contraire, they are strong heroes who fight their attraction at first, usually for some stupid male reason <grin>, but once they `get it¿¿they go after her with guns¿I mean swords¿blazing¿uh, flashing?! <BR/><BR/>Ellie¿s having the best day she¿s had since her mother died recently. The strange rose-shaped birthmark that recently appeared on her chest is NOT cancerous! Now if only she could get rid of the slimy excuse for a step-father who¿s trying to claim the farm and get Ellie in his bed before her mother¿s grave is grassed over. Ellie escapes to the river and while she¿s there she makes a wish¿to find her true love and perhaps ¿a Highlander of my own¿. The next thing she knows she¿s waking up somewhere that looks an awful lot like the Highlands and the year is 1304. Holy crap!<BR/><BR/>Caden doesn¿t trust the Fae. The last time they interfered with his family, his brother was wounded and his life changed forever. As a result of those events, he decided never to marry. Instead, when the time comes, he¿ll appoint one of his brother¿s sons as his heir. Love isn¿t for him. So when his mother decides Ellie has been sent for love, Caden figures she must be here for one of his brothers. That¿s fine! Doesn¿t bother him at all. Nope, not a bit.<BR/><BR/>Stubborn as these two were, I almost expected to hear horns locking whenever they met. How entertaining to `watch¿ their relationship unfold while both are denying the desire for said relationship. Mayhue¿s timing and dialogue¿s were spot-on and caused both sniffles and chuckles at times. The juxtaposition of Ellie¿s modern ways against Caden¿s `medieval¿ sensibilities was used in places to further the plot instead of just cause romantic problems. If I thought Mayhue had intended this for anything but light-hearted romance, I would be a bit critical of the lack of survival and language problems this difference caused¿but hey, this is a romance and it works just fine!<BR/><BR/>The cast is just right with some gruesome bad guys, hot-bodied good guys, and the talking animals who stole the show for me. The tension between the hero and heroine sizzled and sparkled and who knew guys knew so much about women¿s bodies back then? Once again, Melissa Mayhue provided me with a wonderful read in ¿A Highlander of Her Own¿. I¿ll be pacing outside the bookstore waiting for ¿A Highlander¿s Destiny¿ when it¿s released next year.
