Overview

A modern-day woman is wrenched through time and ends up in the arms of a warrior fated for a tragic destiny in the third novel in the Highlands series.
 
While doing research for her dissertation, graduate student Haley Fitzpatrick stumbles upon a strange artifact— which sends her back in time to 17th century Scotland and into the path of the notorious Alasdair MacColla, a warrior known for his enormous physical presence and bloodthirsty reputation.
 
Assuming that this woman with the mysterious accent is an enemy spy, MacColla promptly kidnaps her. But Haley’s beauty and courage strike a chord in the Highlander, making him desire things he wasn’t aware existed. 
 
At first Haley’s frightened by her imposing captor. But she soon discovers that MacColla is much more than the brute that modern history describes, and decides she’s meant to be by his side. But unless she can find a way to change the past, the warrior she’s fallen for is destined to meet a tragic end…

Publishers Weekly

Despite an unoriginal starting point, Wolff's passionate and magical third Highland romance (after 2008's Master of the Highlands) proves compelling. When Harvard student Haley Fitzpatrick is inexplicably transported to 17th-century Scotland, war hero Alasdair MacColla assumes she's one of the enemy Campbells. He keeps a wary eye on her, but her atypical strength and beauty slowly disarm him, just as his courage and larger-than-life physique arouse Haley's tender and romantic feelings. She knows that Alasdair will be betrayed in battle and decides to do whatever it takes to save him, even if it means creating a new version of history. Wolff brings the violent and territorial era to life and mixes in a passionate love story that is certain to please fans and entice new readers. (Jan.)

Harvard University graduate student Haley Fitzpatrick is doing her dissertation on early modern historical weapons although her faculty advisor loathes her topic as being insignificant in the modern world. When she comes across an odd sword circa 1675 and a painting of her with the long dead Highland brutal warrior Alasdair ¿MacColla¿ McDonald, she is shocked. She is unaware that a seventeenth century witch Finona doing the bidding of the Campbells has placed a curse on the sword to insure MacColla¿s bride comes to distract his mind from war.

Back in modern day Boston when she touches the weapon, Haley is propelled back in time to 1675. As MacColla rescues his sister from his enemy the Campbell clan, he captures a stunned Haley near their encampment. He assumes she is a spy while she knows he is a vicious cold killer. However, as they fall in love, he realizes she is no Campbell agent and she concludes he loathes having to shed one drop of blood even that of his foes. She also sadly knows he will soon die in battle.

WARRIORS OF THE HIGHLANDS is an engaging time travel romance starring a strong pairing as Haley learns first hand that to the victors goes the history books as her beloved is nothing liked the modern day depiction of him. Although she adapts too easily to being sent back over three centuries ago, fans will enjoy Veronica Wolff¿s fine tale as the author blends in real persona to anchor the time and place. Readers will enjoy the saga of twenty-first century Harvard meets seventeenth century Highlander.

This book is the 3rd book of the series and, in my opinion, the best so far. The author has certainly improved in writing this series. The heroine in this book is quite strong and was able to defend herself and the male hero! The plot moved along quite nicely and the characters also developed as the plot went on. There's never a boring part in the Warrior of the Highlands!!!!

I enjoyed this book and was disappointed at once not to find another book waiting. I love a little history mixed with the unexplainable. If you like the highlander books these are along the same line without the 900 page investment.
