Overview

Master of the Highlands by Veronica Wolff

Travel back to seventeenth century Scotland with the first novel in the Highlands series, where a modern woman finds true love across the ocean—and across time.
 
Lily Hamlin has finally realized that her life isn’t as perfect as she once thought. Making a pilgrimage to Scotland, a land she’s only heard about in lullabies, Lily hopes that she can find her place again. But while exploring the Highlands, she discovers an overgrown maze and a strange stone map —and lands in the Lochaber of 1654...
 
Ewen, Chief of the Clan Cameron, is a busy man who must figure out how to save his people from the brutal redcoats and has time for little else. Having sired an heir, the widowed Ewen has no need—or room—for another romance. Then into his life drops a saucy lass with a peculiar accent, no regard for his title––and an arousing body. Drawn to each other despite their differences, they both realize that they don't want her to go back to her own time. But with battles brewing between the Camerons, the redcoats, and a rival clan, staying is a gamble.

American Lily Hamlin is enjoying her time visiting Scotland as she tries to figure out what she wants in life because she always feels restless. Currently she investigates a not kept up garden maze in Lochaoer when she finds an odd stone map. She presses her hand against the map only to feel the earth shake with her last twenty-first century being the irony of dying in an earthquake away from her home town of San Francisco. However, she does not demise, instead she find herself back in 1654 as the map proves to be a time portal.------------------ Highlander Chieftain Ewen Cameron is working with his warriors to drive the English and a rival clan off his land when he spots the bewildered Lily. She speaks weird and her clothing is stranger, but he is attracted to her and her to him. However, he has no time for a female even one he desires as his clan and his heir come before his wants. ------------ Although microwave age Lily adapts to the mid seventeenth century with questionable ease even with love as a motivator, time travel romance fans will want to read the exciting MASTER OF THE HIGHLANDS due to the hero struggling with what his clan needs and what he desires. Lily believes she is finally found her niche in life with the young chieftain warrior, but must persuade him they belong together as he willingly sacrifices his love to keep her safe even if that means 2008 San Francisco. Veronica Wolff provides an entertaining romance starring two likable protagonists who want the best for their beloved.---------------- Harriet Klausner

this book had a lot of potential but I couldn't connect with the characters at all. first there was no sense in the romance, no conflict worth  mentioning, there was no sense of clan and people who make the story. the characters were all watered down and it was so hard to stay focused on the story. it really isn't worth the 7.99 and when you read amazing highland time travel from Angeline Fortin for 0.99 you want your money back with this book. I think the highland series from Jennifer Ashley about 4 brothers in England in 1800 has a lot more spirit about highlanders than this book did. I guess I shouldn't have read this book right after Monica Mccarty's Highland series but when compare the two one is a children's book. I am not gonna buy the rest of the series since there are so many other amazing highland books in the market

This reads like a new author. No depth of character. I cant see a laird stuttering annd acting boyish over a girl with big feet and crooked teeth. Just not very realistic.
