Publisher's Summary

Thrust back in time to 16th-century Scotland, Anna finds herself embroiled in a vicious witch hunt and growing attraction for Laird Donal....

Anna Clarke has never had any problem defending herself, but her martial arts expertise can’t stop the fae from pulling her from modern times back to a festering state of unrest in the Scottish Highlands around Loch Ness. After being rescued from near-drowning by the handsome and strong Laird Donal Grant, Anna is forced to accept that magic and time travel are real, as are her attraction and affection for the Scotsman.

Laird Donal Grant struggles against a mounting distrust for the old ways. When Anna appears from the future, he’s captivated by her but also refuses to acknowledge her combat skills or accept her as an equal in that regard.

With the threat from the witch hunters looming and the fae increasingly concerned about losing their connection to the clan, Donal and Anna must come together to defend a way of life one loves and the other is only beginning to understand.

Rescued by the Highlander is the first book in the Highlander Forever series, perfect for fans of brooding heroes, intrepid heroines, and time-travel romance. Grab your copy today, and enter the exciting world of Highlander Forever!

Too many errors

This isn’t the first book that I have read by Rebecca and I was very disappointed with this book. Too many uses of modern words. Drinking implements where called cups or goblets. Glass was very expensive so not common. English/Scottish did not have porches. They still don’t. I found the heroine very aggressive and not at all likeable. The hero came across as bad tempered and with no true conversation. It was also very long winded. Over thinking on the heroines part.

GET A NEW READER!!

Struggled to listen. I'm sure the story would be great, bit I can't Get past the reader. Listening to the first chapter was like pulling teeth, very painful. The reader failed to capture the heroine. Get a new reader and I will consider purchasing again.

Ruined by narrator

This would probably be a decent book if I read it on my own. However, the narrator ruined it for me. She has a halting robotic style that is not conducive to good narration. I'm not trying to be mean but this is affecting ebook sales as I would never buy another book with this narrator. it was like my disinterested grandmother was reading me a romance novel. Sad for the author as I probably would have gotten the rest of her books.

story teller

The person reading this had such a boring way of telling it I'm tempted to stop listening. The only reason I continued was because of the story. Just don't know how much longer I can stand to listen to this person.

poor narrator

The narrator to this book is terrible. . It's almost like she doesn't know what commas and periods mean and she is talking. in rhyme. I would not recommend and wish that I could get my money back.

Terrible narration!!!

I wish I had read the reviews for this book before getting it because if I had, I would’ve seen the multiple complaints about the narrator. I could’ve spared myself some frustration. I thought this book sounded interesting and would be good for listening to while cleaning house etc. I can’t tell you if I liked the story or not because the narrator absolutely ruined the book for me and I couldn’t even finish chapter one!

Don't know which is worse...

the story or the narrator. Let's begin with the narrator who sounded like even her regular voice hurt her to use. It hurt me to have to continually hear her mispronouncing words. She had SOME good variation in her voices but they all sounded like she was in pain. Then the story. Granted this is a fantasy but if you are setting your story in and around a real, and well known castle, do some research. There were no cloth curtains, tea, pastries, distilleries, well-organized lists, or good smelling lairds in the 16th century, to mention just a few things that irritated. I gave up completely when a group of servants carried supplies for the soldiers when they went out to protect the village. Then of course the soldiers ran off leaving the servants unprotected so Anna could save them. Then she lived through giving the laird a tongue lashing. Oh please! we won't even go into her and her problems but if she called herself a woman warrior one more time.... ugh. Don't beat the dead houseguest! Guess it is evident I really disliked this book and don't plan to read anymore in this series. Don't waste your credit. I'm going to go ride my horse, maybe I can find him a good friend so my husband and I can ride side-by-side holding hands. Yes she really wrote that.

Don’t do it....

I wanted to like this, I really did. I love Scottish highlander time travel stories. But this was terrible. To start with, the narration is atrocious. It’s aggravating and monotone and just plain awful. Second, I find the main character to be incredibly annoying and kind of repetitive and whiny. I tried to get through it, because I really hate wasting a credit, however at four hours in, I just can’t go a single second more. It’s possible that the story is better if you read the book instead of listening to it, I don’t know. It’s sometimes hard to pay attention to the story because the narration is so frustrating. Same with the character, perhaps she develops really well, but I just can’t stick around to find out. Don’t waste your time/credits/money on this one.

nice

Nice escape into past story, but slightly flat Scotland and Northumbria knew much female warriors the Picts as well as the Vikings held female warriors in honor. Not to mention the highland warriors value of a strong woman. Anna would not have had such predjuce. And the heroine herself was a bit stupid in being stubborn about proving she didn’t need help

Edit needed

This is the first time I’ve listened to a book with so many mispronunciations. I thought the audio producers had checkers. It was really annoying.
