Publisher's Summary

Grad student and cocktail waitress Evelyn Merkholtz has plenty to deal with. Too much to deal with, actually. So when her runaway best friend calls with a mysterious and urgent request to join her in Scotland, she is secretly more than happy to drop everything and oblige. When she gets there, Evelyn discovers that she is faced with an ancient curse, an adorably hunky villager, and a super hot (but possibly murderous) Highland warrior from the 18th century - and realizes that getting burned at the stake is a really bad way to get out of writing her thesis.

Worst narration I ever encountered

I’ve listened to hundreds of books, with some fantastic narration and some not so great. But never have I gotten one as rotten as this one. Maybe someone should help the narrator grasp the basics of respecting the text’s punctuation and telling her that breathing is allowed while reading it. Returning the book.

Nope..

Any additional comments?

One reviewer said "TOO QUICK PROGRESSION TO SEX." I'm at 55% and there has not even been a kiss, no thoughts of sex, no desire, no wanting from either of them, no sexual tension. If there's sex in this book it's gotta be near the end and that makes it's gratuitous sex and that's the worse kind there is, no sex, no nothing then WHAM there it is.. AND the reviewer said "Maybe both of those questions will be answered in the follow up." Umm, NO.
I should have paid attention. This is a cliffhanger and I absolutely hate when an author tries to force me to read book after book to finally get to a solution. I'm glad I found out before I read the whole book. I'm done. Sorry..
I gave it 3 stars because I'm not finishing it.

As to the narrator: Ms. Dawe just keeps getting better and better. For as much as I listened to she did a great job.

Misleading and disappointment

The book's cover and title makes you think that this is a historical romance. The blurb also mention the sexy highlander. Well the sexy highlander is a character that is barely mentioned. This is NOT a historical romance. If you think this is even close to Outlander you'll be sadly disappointed. The time travel theme is poorly mentioned. And this is basically a contemporary mystery. I listened about 60% of the story (about 5 hours) and our hero and heroine had 0 chemistry. Not one kiss, barely any flirting or inclination that a romance will develop. This is just a mistery about how an 18th century highlander ended in in Piper's home (heroine's BFF). I kept listening to see if it would get better but no, every minute I Was more and more disappointed. It was a waste of time and money.

what?

This is the first book I've rented with my new AUDIBLE ROMANCE PACKAGE. The plot and story, I enjoyed it. The ROMANCE part of the book seemed to be lost somewhere in the pages. I felt like I was waiting for it to happen and when it FINALLY did I felt like it was an afterthought.
Evelyn gets a phone call from her best friend asking her to drop everything and fly to Scotland to help her figure out how to send a man back to his time. The TIME TRAVEL was backwards d where the man was taken from his time to ours, but he spent ALL of the book in the tower. That right there I feel AD missed a great opportunity with him dealing with this time. In the middle of the book, Evelyn finds herself trapped in the past.
Overall this was pleasant read. listening to the book they have the Scottish accent which is the reason I like audiobooks it seems like they're on stage acting instead of just reading the book to you and one normal tone voice.

Had to have more

I enjoyed this book so much that I immediately grabbed the remainder of the series that was in audio format. Devoured those too...can't review since they came from the source.

You'll want more of this time travel adventure. What's not to like, hunky highlanders in the past and present, a witch, a war & a baby.

Narrator Whines

Narrator whines on nearly every trailing word . The pace and unemotional inflection made it difficult to engage with many of the characters. It was like having a neighbor who sits at your table talking on and on whining and complaining about everybody, but you want to know what she has to say so you endure. I nearly quit the book many times, but the plot and author is good enough to finished. I will try book 2 in the series. If there is no improvement I'll be finding a different series.

Riveting tale, can't wait to see what happens next

Yes, a scottish highlander, from another century, on the 5th floor! How did he get there? How can they return him to his own time.

Yes, it's a time travel novel, but to the future, not the past. All the answers are in the book, and then a few more.

Lost Highlander

I enjoyed reading this book! Highlanders and modern women getting to know each other with a little witchcraft thrown into the mix.
