Overview

Ancient magic sends a modern woman on a passionate adventure to the thirteen-century Scottish Highlands in this enchanting time-travel romance by award-winning author Melissa Mayhue.

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 that her fiancé is cheating on her, marrying her only for her family’s money and influence. Imagine her surprise when she puts on an antique pendant and Connor suddenly appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers an outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him for a short time, and return home.

But nothing goes as planned. Cate’s trapped in the thirteenth century, the wedding’s delayed, and someone’s trying to kill her. And in the middle of all this, she realizes that she’s falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for thirty nights. It will take more than the magic of the Fae to help them now. It will require the most powerful magic of all—the magic of true love.

Scottish warrior Connor MacKiernan has vowed never to marry. As a
descendant of a fae prince, he has also vowed to protect the women of
his family. And In order to protect his sister, Connor must marry. Using
faerie magic, Connor travels from Scotland, 1272 to Denver Colorado,
2007 to find his bride.
Caitlyn Coryell is having a wretched day. After finding her fiancé
with another woman, she goes home to lick her wounds. Standing in
front of the mirror wearing nothing but an antique pendant and what
was to have been her honeymoon lingerie, Caitlyn is stunned when a man
appears begging for her help. Connor asks Caitlyn to return with him
to his time, marry him and then return home. Though the plan sounds
simple enough, reality is anything but simple. The wedding is
delayed, someone is trying to kill Caitlyn and to really complicate
matters, Caitlyn is falling in love with Connor.
Melissa Mayhue's Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband is enchanting.
Connor is totally pant worthy and Caitlyn is so deserving of his
love. Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband has a suspenseful plot
and an unlikely villain. The secondary characters tickled my fancy
and I am begging for books for each of Caitlyn's brothers. Honor,
love, and faerie magic make Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband
captivating!

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

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.

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
