Overview

When COLIN MACALISTER is cursed by the Faerie Queen and ends up in the bed of a twenty-first-century woman—who also happens to be the most beautiful creature he’s ever laid eyes on—he’s torn between anger and lust. Colin is determined to see Scotland free of English control and must return to the fourteenth century, yet he cannot forget the woman who haunts his dreams and stirs him with scorching desire.

ABIGAIL PORTER can’t believe her luck. After making a wish to find her soul mate, she wakes up to find a gorgeous man in her bed! Can he really be a medieval Highlander summoned by her Faerie Magic, however? It seems crazy, but when Abby discovers someone wants to enslave her because of her Faerie heritage, she agrees to flee with Colin to 1306 Scotland to avoid capture. Thwarting danger at every turn, Abby and Colin surrender to an irresistible passion. But is the magic of true love powerful enough to save them?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In her eighth Daughters of the Glen paranormal historical romance (after Healing the Highlander), Mayhue hurls her hunky 14th-century Scottish warrior Colin MacAlister again and again into the amatory breach, starting with his exceptionally naked appearance in the bed of tough-talking present-day archeologist Abigail Porter. Both descended from the Fae, Colin and Abby suffer from donnee, the "great wanting" that comes from being separated from one's soul mate. Together they travel back to the eve of Robert the Bruce's great battle at Methven, becoming closer as menacing Nuadian Fae Flynn O'Dannan poses as Abby's sponsor and lusts after her Fae-touched blood. Time after time, Mayhue brings Colin, Abby, and her readers tantalizingly close to emotional satisfaction until Abby, struggling to choose between hot tubs and drafty castles, finally realizes there are things "more important than toilet paper." (Apr.)

Awesome series

I don't know why, but I never seem to get tired of Scottish men as handsome heroes. I felt like I should have opened a can of Campbell's soup in honor of this book. I haven't read all 8 of these books, but the ones I have read have been enjoyable. I wish the ebook wasn't $7.99 though.

Fourteenth century Scottish warrior Colin MacAlister ends up in the twenty-first century bed of present-day archeologist Abigail Porter. As she rips his skin verbally for being in her room, she also admires his naked skin that is muscle tight. Colin and Abby are descendants of the Fae. Though neither are aware of it, each has been suffering from the donnee-wanting that impact the Fae when they are apart from their soul mate. The pair travels to Methven in 1306 as the great battle is about to begin. When the Nuadian Fae Flynn O'Dannan insists he is Abby's mentor, he conceals from her that he actually wants her Fae blood. The latest Daughters of the Glen paranormal historical romance (see Healing the Highlander) is a great entry as the heroine defines the story line with her choice between eternal love and material comfort. Can the warmth of the heart and a hunk overcome indoor plumbing and heating (and air conditioning), microwave and toilet paper; for that is the question. From present day Denver and Scotland to early fourteenth century Scotland at a time when Robert the Bruce leads the battle for independence, Melissa Mayhue escorts her readers on a wonderful time travel romance in which the audience will ponder social working vs. a drafty castle.

I love this series and how the characters branch out but show up in other story lines. I liked the character development of Colin--from hardened warrior to where he was able to look beyond what he's been. Can't wait for the next one!

I've enjoyed this entire series. Some books I liked better than others, but I really can't say there is one book that is just plain "bad". The same can be said for this book, another great one with great writing, great dialogue and great characters.
