Overview

Romance in Scotland awaits in the fourth novel in the Highlands series from national bestselling author Veronica Wolff.

An online dating service may have pronounced Felicity “unmatchable” but she’s determined—and destined—to find her perfect mate. All it takes is a mystical deck of Tarot cards to put her dreams to the test.
 
Light a candle. Choose a card. And 17th century Scotland is only a wish away…
 
Scarred by betrayal, Will Rollo lives to defend the monarchy against traitors…and he rides alone. The last thing he needs to contend with is a love-struck woman. So when Felicity appears, spirited by magic, Rollo’s determined to crush all tender feelings for her. But as passion binds them in a dark era, where witchcraft is punishable by death, Rollo must make a daring choice: send Felicity back to her own time, or endanger both their lives…

In present day San Francisco, Felicity under the name "Mellow Yellow" is taken aback when she seeks her perfect match with an on-line dating service; only the response is she has no matches. Still stunned with being declared "unmatchable", Felicity plays with a tarot deck. The next thing she knows is she is in 1658 where she meets Highlander William Rollo; as he rescues someone form the Tower. Having met time travelers before, William is not shocked with the displaced woman; however he is stunned with his attraction as he wants her and by her seductive behavior he knows she wants him. However, this is not a safe era for an out of time soul mate to be in Scotland as witch hunters roam the Highlanders seeking to burn travelers from the future; while his efforts to return the legitimate monarch to the throne adds to the danger. Still both want her to stay with him for eternity. The latest twenty-first century female battling a seventeenth century Highlander is an engaging gender war as each wants one another, but neither believes they have all the time in the world to pursue that attraction. William has met futuristic females before (see Warrior of the Highlands) so is not quite bewildered by Felicity's equality attitude. On the other hand she adapts rather easily considering the culture shock. With real people and events to anchor down time and place, Veronica Wolff provides a wonderful time travel romance.

I have really enjoyed Virginia Wolff's books but this one I was so annoyed by the character Felicity that I just gave up reading it. I love time travel and Highlanders, but she acted more like she was mentally 12. I started rooting for him to be able to send her somewhere in time way away from him since he was so nice. Maybe I will try again to get through it.

Is it fair of me to critique a book without first reading it? Normally I would say no. But today, I'm making an exception. READ DIANA GABALDON BOOKS?? Good heavens! Is this fan-fiction? Or is it commonplace to rape other stories before writing one's own? William? Rollo? Time Travel? Modern woman? Scotland? Returning a legitimate monarch to his throne? Am I really seeing this??!!
