Overview

SCOTLAND, 1272. Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.

DENVER, 2007. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day—she just discovered her fiancé with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.

But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the thirteenth century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for thirty nights.

    In 1272 Scotland Connor MacKiernan needs a wife to help care for his sister. He invokes the Legend of the Glen to enable him to find a suitable 'spouse'. He thinks he has succeeded, but must persuade Caitlyn Coryell to leave 2007 and its incredible conveniences behind.------------- In Denver, Colorado Caitlyn is heartbroken after she caught her fiancé cheating. Despondent she asks an antique pendant (with a reputation for magic) to find her true love before putting it on. Connor appears and asks for her help with his sibling she takes a chance on him and the thirteenth century for a one month trial. As they fall in love, some of his family members try break them apart, using any means possible to achieve their goal of returning Caitlyn to the future.------------------ Although Caitlyn adapts to the thirteenth century easier than a New Yorker relocating to Macon or visa versa, this is an amusing time travel romance due to a strong cast including the lead duo. The story line is fast-paced as readers root for Caitlyn and Connor to find a way together as they fall in love. THIRTY NIGHTS WITH A HIGHLAND HUSBAND is a fun historical as the twenty-first century Rocky Mountain lass meets the thirteenth century Highlander laird.---------- Harriet Klausner

    A KEEPER!!

    I started this book in the evening and was up until I finished it. I could not put it down! I love Caitlin, she just shines! Ms. Mayhue takes her heroine on a journey that tests her limits and forces her to become stronger and spunkier throughout the book. And who wouldn't pass every test thrown at her if you were fighting for Connor? Oh my god!! Yum. Think Braveheart but with a happy ending. The supporting characters are wonderful too, no cardboard cutouts there. They hold their own and carry the story to a pulse-pounding end. Buy this book! You will not regret it. I noticed this is the first in the Daughters of the Glen series and can't wait for the next one to come out.

    Magic of True Love

    In the misty recesses of time a Faerie Prince loses his true love, prompting a blessing on all his mortal female descendants, bestowing his powers on them that they should be protected and allowed to find their own true loves.

    CONNOR MACKIERNAN is a 13th century Scottish warrior, a descendent of that Faerie prince, a man who lives only for honor and duty, but he has a huge problem. His experience of betrayal at the hands of women has left him suspicious and distrustful of any woman's motives. He's sworn never to marry, but finds he must do exactly that to save his sister. With the help of his well-meaning aunt, and a little Faerie magic, the search for a bride is on.

    CAITLYN CORYELL is a 21st century woman who longs to be strong enough to find love without sacrificing who she is. Her experience with an unfaithful fiance who wanted to marry her only for her family's money and influence has left her doubting her desirability and any man's reason for wanting her. Imagine her surprise when she puts on an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging her help to save his sister. He offers a simple adventure: travel to his time, marry him and return home. But nothing's simple when the adventure backfires, trapping Cate in the 13th Century.

    An ancient Faerie's blessing reaches across the barriers of time to unite two emotionally wounded people. But it will take more than the magic of the Fae to heal their hearts. It will require the most powerful magic of all - the magic of true love.

    Caitlyn (aka Cate) is torn, she's days away from her own wedding and she innocently discovers her fiance, Richard, having an affair with his secretary but she's never been one of those women who could end things so easily. Thus, she's weak in her decision about cutting ties and on that same night, a tartan-wearing warrior, Connor, walks through her bedroom mirror. Thinking she's drunk on whiskey and imagining marital related things, Cate accepts this Highlanders proposition of marriage and finds herself in 1272 Scotland with a wedding soon approaching. Yet, as realization sinks in, threats on her life become quite frequent, and romance beginning to bloom, Cate must make some tough chooses about "true" love and the sacrifices one must make in order to get it.

    I'm a sucker for time-travels and this one was an easy fun read. A little silly at certain parts, but none the less entertaining. You can't take the story too seriously though since some of the plot concepts just seemed rather oddly unrealistic (even for a time-travel tale), but overall it's a good 'curl-up-on-the-couch' Sunday book. I enjoyed Connor the most. He's unbashful about marriage, daring in his actions, and accepting of all Cate's futuristic quirks. I'm eager to read more into the series to catch further glimpses of him and his family/friend.

    Likes: Mairi was a fun and vibrant part of the story that spiced up Cate's character. I enjoyed their little escapes from the castle together to spy on Connor.

    Dislikes: Cate came off as a confusing character to me, at times she would display a strong manner with great tact by working within her families international business, but she wasn't very resilient in her attitude toward Richard. It's like her "time-travel experience" was the only pivotal moment in her life that made her actually change for the good and because of that, she just appeared as a weak women to me in her thoughts and actions for most of

    Wonderful Story

    ***NOTE MY REVIEWS OFTEN CONTAIN SPOILERS***

    Conner MacKiernan is a 13th century highland knight sworn into the king's service. He should have been laird, but since he was only a child when his father and brothers passed away, his awful uncle usurped his title and Conner has no desire to see the lives of his people lost in a war over who should lead them. When his Uncle promises his younger sister into a marriage with an older laird Mairi doesn't love who's already killed three wives before her Conner doesn't know what to do. He can't stand and protect Mairi while still in the king's service. He can't leave the king's service unless he marries himself and seven years before he made a vow before god and man that he'd marry no woman who currently walked the earth. The action had seemed understandable at the time, considering his betrothed has married his Uncle while he was off serving the king, but it left him with little choice but to turn to his aunt, a descent of the Fairy Prince Pol to help him find someone who can help him. Rosalyn, Conner's lovable and meddling aunt sends Connor forward in time where be meets and retrieves Caitlyn Coryell from modern day Colorado to be his new bride. Caitlyn has just caught her fiance cheating on her with his secretary only to have him tell her it was her fault for not being more adventurous or providing for his needs by sleeping with him. Worse than this she almost believes he's right so when Connor shows up and offers her this chance at an adventure she doesn't turn him down. What follows is an adventurous and humorous tale of love and intrigue in 13th century Scotland. Neither Connor nor Caitlyn is ready to trust a member of the opposite sex, but if they don't trust each other or open their hearts, what cost will it be to their lives?

    Have you ever read one of those stories where you find yourself so lost in the story that when you finish it you have a hard time going back and looking at it critically? For me this tale of magic, mystery and love in the Highlands was once such tale. I debated for a while between just giving it a five star rating and gushing over it or stopping to think if anything really bothered me with this novel, my status update on good reads reminded me that at the beginning I was ready to slap Cate upside the head for her behavior so I decided to rate this at four stars.

    The book does have a great set up with excellent character growth, but I just can't bring myself to give a five star rating to a book where the female lead pretty much convinces herself it's her fault her fiance cheated on her. In the beginning chapters you actually get to listen to the thought process as she rationalizes Richard's behavior and finds only herself to blame. While she does decide to call of the wedding it's not because of Richard's actions, it's because she realized she was only marrying him because her mother and grandmother had been married at her age. Her wedding was basically a check mark on her to do list and her older brother convinced her that love doesn't work like that. Umm how about the fact you're engaged to a slime ball as a good reason to call off the wedding?! If my fiance ever did that to me then tried to tell me it was my fault I'd be causing him bodily harm to ensure he never did it again and I certainly wouldn't marry him. It wouldn't be my fault it would be his fault. Cate does grow through out the book, getting a backbone, slowly seeing her worth, a
