Blurb:

He's arrived to help her create the perfect bride.

He’s stuck in present-day Scotland with a bent time-travel key only she, a swordsmith, can repair. Duty requires he return to his time. His ticket home relies on a lonely woman haunted by more than apparitions. Her track record with men keeps her at a distance. And ghostly events keep pushing them closer together. Earning her trust will require the kind of patience only a valiant time guardian learns during his twenty years of apprenticeship. If time-travel duty, romance, and a bit of magic don’t help them realize their destiny resonates in mysterious fairy SWORDSONG, all known history could change.

Meet the Author

Educated in geology and anthropology, writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in (bioarchaeology) anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, and kilts, Skhye loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction. Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so that every culture in her tales and every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible. And yes, she's "certifiably" geek.

    Favorite!

    I've read 5 of the series, and this one is the best. The interaction with Murdo and Katie is wonderful. The storyline is so unique! All the character's are so richly written. Had a lot of twists, I didn't see coming. I couldn't put it down! Ljb

    Interesting

    A guardian of time lines and seeker of the truth, Ring Master Murdo McEwen gets an abrupt introduction to Katie McInnis-the beginning of a beguiling love story.

    The culture Murdo comes from is rather cumbersome, but all the ins and outs of it fade into the background as he lands in the twenty-first century rather than the thirty-first century. The fairies have their own agenda and timetable for him.

    In 2004, Murdo ends up in Scotland with three vacationing girl friends that have been together for twenty-seven days and are thoroughly tired of each other's company. The humorous style Skhye Moncrief uses entertains while setting up an intriguing plot that entwines Katie and Murdo's lives.

    Katie, an apprentice swordsmith, works with her Uncle John who is a master swordsmith. She came to live with Uncle John, Aunt Iona, and Sticky Fingers John, their icky son when her parents were killed. However, she feels alone, hates Sticky Fingers' groping antics, and longs for a good man to love and to love her. Of course, she hadn't planned to hit a hunky man in a kilt with her car, but it happened and Katie's heart jumps with anticipation. He is the one she wants, but fears she can never have.

    On the Loch Lomond Gloaming Cruise with Black Liam, Katie and Murdo , as destined, connect. Liam tells Murdo that "the High Priestess has sent word" Katie is Murdo's soul mate. He is to protect and take care of her. He already adores his sensual, charming maiden. By being patient and trustworthy, he hopes to win her love. He would like to kill Cousin Sticky Fingers for the way he treats Katie. Since that is not acceptable in the twenty-first century, he must deal with the crude cousin in a different way.

    His forbearance, pure love, and finally his and Katie's "hand fasting" create an enchanting love story with a touch of magic.

    The secondary characters like Duke Ronat and Black Liam add a bit of mystery and supernatural to Swordsong because they play important roles in Katie and Murdo's destiny-a destiny that sends them to a time and a life far removed from the lives they have known.

    Swordsong is a tale of future, present, and past with each of the time periods nurturing Katie and Murdo until the time is right for their union-their destiny.

    Skhye Moncrief creates a unique culture from which Murdo comes. She weaves it in with present culture, making a compelling, sparkling love story with a unique twist near the end.

    more from this reviewer

    Read about men with integrity

    The Time Guardians Swordsong, started out with a sneak view into time travel which progressed to a simple love story which was totally typical. Time travel did not return until the end of the book. As I see it it was romance with a bit of fantasy.
