Overview

Single-and-pregnant museum worker Melanie voices an idle wish while examining a Scottish artifact, that a Highland warrior would sweep her off her feet and help her forget her cheating ex. The last thing she expects is for her wish to be granted. Magically transported to the middle of a clan skirmish in the sixteenth-century Highlands, she comes face to face with her kilted fantasy man.

Tall, handsome, and heir to his uncle's lairdship, Darcy Keith should be the most eligible bachelor in Ackergill. Instead, thanks to a prank played on him in his teenage years, he is known for being too large under his kilt to ever make a proper husband. "Big Darcy" runs his deceased father's windmills and lives alone at his family manor, believing he will never marry.

But a strangely dressed woman he rescues from a clan skirmish makes him long for more. When the woman's claims of coming to Ackergill by magic reach the laird's ears, she is accused of witchcraft. Darcy determines to protect her any way he can, even if it means binding her to him forever.

    Yep, it's time travel romance that reminded me of Diana Gabaldo


    Yep, it's time travel romance that reminded me of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Melanie falls through a time portal due to her idle wish on a special box and ends up coming through the stone circles (think Stonehenge style) to old school Scotland. Like Gabaldon's book, Melanie meets a Highlander warrior who sweeps her off her feet.





    However, here's the big difference for me between the two tales: tongue in cheek humor and a heck of a lot less Scottish history lessons. While I love the Outlander, the history bogged it down for me to the point of where I never finished the series! That's not the case here. Wishing for a Highlander is a tight tale that has you rooting for Melanie and Darcy to get together.





    I loved that Melanie was pregnant, and I kept wondering how the author was going to make this romance thing work. After all, pregnancy isn't always the most romantic thing! But she pulled it off by creating a hero who feels like an outcast and has sympathy for the strange woman from another time. While Darcy is a the macho type that must be present in a romance, he comes off as a human being capable of changing his thought process.





    Melanie is a well written, down to Earth character who makes you laugh with her quirkiness and wonder if she really wants to go home to her time. I thought the chemistry between her and Darcy was fun!





    Of course, every romance like this has it's bad guys. Lord Stefan is definitely a guy with a few issues of his own. He has a thing about witches and the fact that Melanie speaks differently and has this odd box, has him immediately wanting to set up a campfire and start roasting our heroine. Again, I was surprised at how well developed his character turned out to be. Let's just say that he's not the traditional bad guy.





    I enjoyed the character of Anya. She's the one who sort of keeps the revenge ball rolling as the story goes along since she has had a past with Darcy.





    Okay, it's time for the sex talk. How does Wishing for a Highlander measure up? Hot, hot, hot! I will not be going into detail on the subject, but it's well written stuff that makes you want to go out and buy your man a kilt!





    Great book!

    Melanie newly single and pregnant. While working at the Charlest

    Melanie newly single and pregnant. While working at the Charleston Museum she receives a box that wont open, While fiddling with it she makes a wish for a Highlander and was swept  back in time, to the Highlands.




    Darcy a man who runs a mill, and try's to be a good man and do is duty to his clan. After an incident in his youth he swore to never be with a woman.




    When Darcy finds Melanie, he claims her as his own. Feeling very compelled to help and protect her. 




    I really enjoyed reading Wishing for a Highlander. It was the first time travel book i read in awhile.  I loved how it was full of magic and action as well romance. The plot was well written and kept me on the edge of my seat with what was going on. The character were believable, and very interesting. Hero and Heroine were very well round characters and did  not seem one dimensional. I loved the back story, it made it easier to see and understand why the character were the way they are. After reading this i really hope Jessi Gage writes more of this genre.

    On of the best books I have read to date...and that says allot! Great character development. Some twists to the plot you may think you have the answer to but you are proven wrong! Love when that happens. Want to see this developed into a series it could easily enough. But as a stand alone very good. Would I buy again YES.

    Loved the story, loved the authors writing style! It was fun from beginning to end. There wasn't a slow paced or dull moment at any point in the story. 
    I can't wait to read more from Jessi Gage.

    Great Book

    I read this book in one evening. Great characters. I also read the next book in the series and it was equally good. Jessi writes about strong, loyal, and sweet men which I love. She is expanding this series in the spring and I cannot wait!

    There is no comparison.  Darcy does not hit Melanie when he is angry with her.  He does not get raped.  Outlander is very dark and this is very light.  I'm for light .  Outlander 1 star.    Wishing for a Highlander 4 stars.

    Very, very good!

    This ia a wonderfull story involving a young pregant woman making a wish and ending up with a handsome young Higlander. Now it's not a new plot devise I know, but there are some surprises along the way. The true joy here is the excellently drawn characters who aren't lazy two dimensional constructs but living conflicted people who aren't all good or all evil.

    Great time travel to medieval Scotland

    I enjoyed this book. Many surprises along the way to keep you enthralled. I love it when honor and devotion precede a love story.

    My only complaint was the magical camp the main character visited was off the charts weird. More like a circus and had me shaking my head. Other than that, loved the book.

    Good romantic time travel story

    So it reminded me of Outlander with none of the history and dine in a fun and less formal format. Overall pretty good. Likeable characters.

    Excellent

    Darcy and Melanie's story was so entertaining I hated for the story to end. I liked this version of time travel with a pregnant Melanie going back in time. And also poor Darcy being so worried about his large size body.
