Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read several of Tess Mallory's earlier books, so I had high expectations when beginning "Highland Rogue," and I wasn't disappointed. This book has everything: romance, adventure, humor, magic, suspense, time travel, and did I say ROMANCE? The love scenes are beautiful - hot, hot, HOT, and yet always in graceful good taste, never sleazy or trashy. There is a very strong story apart from the romance and the story gets well established long before the romance. The hot and sexy scenes don't begin until about halfway into the book, which is a very refreshing change from the often "lust for the first five chapters, and then make love for the rest of the book" romance novels I`ve read.

Most of the book takes place in Scotland in the 18th century, and, as usual, the author has done her research, and paints a beautiful picture of Scotland at that time. The two main characters, Maggie Graham of the 21st century, and the "Rogue" Quinn MacIntyre are beautifully drawn, distinctive, fully developed characters. The night I finished the book, I was a few chapters from the end. I decided to read "just one chapter" before going to bed. The excitement cranked up to high gear, and I literally could not put the book down, so I was up until the wee hours finishing it, and it was well worth it. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who likes romance novels, historical novels, suspense and adventure, or novels of any sort. This book has it all!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Austin, Texas, Maggie Graham loves everything about historical Scotland; Liam Neeson of Rob Roy fame is her hero. Thus she is euphoric when she receives the letter from Dr. Alexander that she has been accepted to join an archaeological dig near Drymen in the Scottish Highlands.

At the site, Maggie finds a a huge, tri-spiral carving in the floor of the cairn that sends her back in time to 1711 at an importune moment. She drops into the midst of a battle between the forces of Quinn McIntyre and those of the Duke of Montrose. Quinn saves her life taking her to his friend, Ian McGregor for safekeeping. However, when Montrose captures McGregor, Quinn vows to free his friend; Maggie wants to help. Their efforts fail leaving Quinn mortally wounded and McGregor slated for execution. Maggie takes her beloved back to the future where he can get medical treatment that will save his life; she knows they will go back because McGregor still needs rescuing.

This back and forth entertaining time travel romance is a fun tale starring a courageous heroine who has romanticized the Scottish legendary heroes so much so that Quinn wonders if he can measure up to her ideal. Fast-paced fans will enjoy the romance between the modern day starry eyed Texan and her HIGHLAND ROGUE.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By H. Grove (errantdreams) TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 4, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I realized I had another time-travel Scottish romance in my hands, I thought, 'you've got to be kidding me.' I've read Kurland's With Every Breath and Wolff's Sword of the Highlands, and I couldn't help wondering just how much you could do with such a narrow niche. Well, Tess Mallory's Highland Rogue is one of those books that proves you can't judge a book by its concept---or its peers.

Maggie has always wanted to be an archaeologist, and she's always wanted to visit Scotland. She put both dreams on hold when her parents died and she was forced to raise her twin sisters. Now they're grown, and they and Maggie's best friend have a birthday present for Maggie---a trip to an archaeological dig at a cairn in Scotland.

The trip is little more than a con designed to make tourists feel like they're getting a 'real' archaeological experience. But for once Maggie's doing something for herself, and she's determined to enjoy it. Then she and Alex, the 'archaeologist' running the dig, uncover a mysterious tri-spiral carving inside the cairn. When Maggie accidentally activates the power inside the carving, she's sent back in time to 1711, where she runs right into the path of a highwayman's horse.

There are only a couple of tiny smudges on what is otherwise a gorgeous book, so naturally I'll get them out of the way quickly. There are some moments toward the beginning of Maggie's stay in the past when you do notice dribs of 'formula' as such, but the author breaks free of them quickly. (To be fair to Ms. Mallory, she's at a disadvantage. You can't have the character adjust to such a thing in a paragraph, yet since this seems to be its own mini-genre readers may get tired of reading that inevitable adjustment over and over again.
