Publisher's Summary

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O'Rourke believes in happily ever afters...just not her own. She's convinced passion exists only in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation - but she doesn't expect it to be in 15th-century Ireland.

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?

good story

very predictable storyline, but good read. wish it would have given the legend of the o'rourke's in the beginning. would have been earier to be more vested in the story. wraps up way to easy and neat. overall good book.

Years worth of wonderful....

Ireland instead of Scotland and leine instead of kilt.... Still the perfect medieval romance a time travel legacy that makes it truly unique.

Excellent performance by Jane Jacobs.
No sex but true chemistry.
Definitely creditworthy!

Waste of time

Though this book has the potential to be a good story, it falls far short for me. Conversations between characters are very weak, there is no flow, I very much doubt a Laird from the 1400's would use the language ascribed to Nicholas. There are many contradictions. I listened tthrough to the end, but felt many times I should end it and move on to another book. Causes me to feel frustrated.

Lack of details like watching black n white tv

Which 21st Century person time travels and doesn't marvel at all difference in the 15th century? A mother sees her daughter for the first time in more than 2 decades and no reaction or even visits or keeps in touch. If u have not read authors who can transform u then u will love this book series but if u like details that help u visualizes Ireland in in the 15 th century this author missed the mark.

Good story, bad narrator

I liked the story, but the narrator didn't do so well. Her voice was want more mature than the character, her inflections sounded like reading to a clean and I couldn't believe what she was saying.

A True Highlander Romance with a twist

This was a good time travel romance. It was what I would call a true romance with only one situation that had "relations". Saying that, the book was well written with an interesting plot with different twist and turns. This was well worth a credit.

Wonderful book and series!

I love how the true story is told. A lot of romance books are filled with long sex scenes, but not a lot of real story. I can't wait to hear Claire's story and I hope James gets another chance at love.
