Description: “He dominated her mind. She possessed his soul. Emma Gordon escapes from a troubling marriage in which she’s completely lost sight of who she is. Desperate for independence, she leaves her husband while on a trip in the Scottish Highlands. Only thing is, she ends up hurled back in time to the 16th Century Castle Gealach and headlong into the arms of the handsome, intimidating Laird Logan Grant. Thrust into a world filled with treachery, danger and intensity she must summon the courage to find her way.

Logan is tormented by a dark past and harbors a secret that could tear his country apart. He’s consumed with the need for control which wars with his longing for harmony. Unable to resist Emma’s beauty and spirit and the calm that she invokes, Logan confesses he desires her—but only on his terms. He promises erotic encounters that will change them both forever, and quench their overwhelming desire.

Despite her own reservations, Emma longs to get close to the mysterious laird, even while she is desperate to return to her own era. She agrees to Logan’s proposal to satisfy her curiosity, but in the end embarks on a daring, passionate affair that rocks her to the very core. Secrets are uncovered, souls bared, spirits transformed. Neither of them can hide behind the plaid.” (via

Our Thoughts:

  • Unlike our other novel recommendations this month, there are no fantastical creatures in this story, but it does involve time travel and an extremely hot highland laird.

  • No one deserved a hawt highlander more than Emma, after her horrible, no good, very bad, despicable 21st century husband! He also did not have the assets to please his woman.

  • We enjoyed seeing a modern woman get sucked back to that time and experiencing life. You can totally put yourself in her shoes.

  • Logan is a man’s man, who enjoys women often and like to combines different flavors together. However, once he has a taste of Emma, she is the only one he wants.

  • An illicit love affair is always fun and dangerous, especially set in 16th century Scotland.

Happy Reading!
