Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.
And she does not want to be there.
Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

I really wanted to love this book. It started out good, but after a time I caught myself skipping pages, then I was skipping paragraphs. After the short short love scene I couldn't read any more. There was no feelings to make me want to finish. So I didn't.
Briangh/Bri had taken almost two years to get to this day with Kriston. Briangh’s client Kristian had been her very most difficult client so far. Bri was a match makerand Kristian was a state senator’s daughter . Nathew had been suggesting to Bri what to wear the last few times they went out. Mathew had asked bri to marry him she had said okay but did not feel a glow like most newly engaged women more like a deal had been made. Bri had a dream lover that she got from different pieces from different romance novels she had read. Feeling overwelmed and not deriously happy Bri escapes to Ireland to just get away for awhile. Bri was given a broach by her aunt that was passed down to every engaged woman on that side of Bri’s family. It had a legacy also involving time travel. Then Bri finds herself in the fiftheenth century with Riley- her cousin Bri has been brought to this time to be Laird Nicholas MacWilliam’s wife. Then Bri and Nicholas agree to stay married for three months. There is an attraction between Nicholas and Bri. I really liked this story even though I an not a fan of time travel. This was well writen and had a very good plot for the most part. I liked the flow of the story especially how Bri wanted to escape from Mathew right after becoming engaged I liked the ins and outs of this story and i recommend.
