Book Description

Treachery rules the Highlands of 1423. With their king captured by the English, Scottish nobles plot to ransom James behind the back of the brutal regent holding their land in his iron grip. But not every clan wishes to see King James back on his throne…

Sitting atop this powder keg of bloodthirsty rivalries, Malcolm of clan MacKintosh takes the mysterious, lone maiden he finds along his road as a bad omen…though an undeniably beautiful one. When he attempts to save her from a rogue within his own garrison, she deftly brings Malcolm to his knees. Who is this willful lass who has so quickly laid siege to his heart?

Alethia Goodsky has met all kinds working at the New York Renaissance Festival, but no one like the fortune-teller who tasks her with a cryptic life-saving mission and flings her into the fifteenth century. Now Alethia must rely on her wits to unravel the mystery in this violent land. Malcolm has sworn to protect her, but her gifts may soon make her his protector. With enemies closing in, Alethia must choose between finding a way home…and remaining true to her Highlander.

Review

“Quite enchanting...more than a few laughable moments. The characters were delightful...smart and sassy. There was just enough romance to add a perfect amount of spice.” —Night Owl Reviews Top Pick

5.0 out of 5 stars "Smack Your Mama, Good!" February 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So, let me tell you how freaking awesome this book was. This was the kind of book where you call up people in the middle of the night and go "OMG, you HAVE GOT to read this book!!".

This book was Julie Garwood good!! I don't know what Barbara Longley put in her cereal while she wrote this but she needs needs to market it, because this lady had it going on! Now, I am a fan of time travel romance, but one of the problems with this trope is that very often, there are just parts that don't make sense. Not so with True to the Highlander. It all made perfect sense and nobody acted contrary to their time period and I just want to be buried with this book. It was soooo hard to keep my review to myself.

First of all, IMHO, the star of the book, Alethia (*gasp*) yep, you heard me right. The heroine. She was perfect. Lippy, brave but not stupidly so, smart and since I want you to read this for yourself, I won't tell you why, but of all the females in all the known world, Alethia is the only choice for this adventure/romance. I will tell you that my girl, Alethia is responsible for the modern day tampon, and my new favorite word.

"BOSSAMEE" I use this like a thousand times a day, now!!

Malcolm is a flat out hoot. He just doesn't know what to do with this modern day woman. He considers himself to be a modern man, (for his time) he just doesn't realize that to Alethia, he is barely out of the cave. There are just so many elements that combine to make this one of my favorite reads this year, the humor, the romance, the lack of overwhelming angst, the wonderful story, and the great secondary characters, and it is a SMART book. At no point did I have to grit my teeth and go "Nooooo, it doesn't fit!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! February 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was lucky to get an ARC copy, and I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. True (or Alethia in our time) is sent back to fifteenth-century Scotland to save a life, although she has no idea whose. Malcolm is the son of an earl, and as such is a leader of men. She's a feisty Native American modern girl to his old-time dominant ways. Seeing the two of these characters go head-to-head was so much fun! I love many things about this story - the Scottish accents (just enough to give a flavor of their dialect), the glimpses of Scottish history, and of course, the love story. This was a quick read, the adventure so absorbing, it carried me to the last page. Truly a great read.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok! You try to hold your kindle , read your book, turn the pork chops and stir the taters all while listening to your husband talk about his day. Talk about multitasking. When I just wanted to sit down and finish this book. It was a great read and I am on to the authors next book. I Don't break down and tear apart the books that I read, they are for enjoyment not dissection. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read in a very long time! February 23, 2014
By jenn k
Format:Kindle Edition
I was hooked on this story just a few pages in. This book combines the best of everything I love to read about; historical romance, the paranormal, mystery, & drama. The characters are wonderful and well developed. The heroine is smart, funny, strong, & brave. The hero is the perfect mix of stubborn, romantic, & masculine. This is one of those rare stories I would actually read more than once. I want to tell everyone I know to read it ASAP! You should too! It's so great!
I'm off to find the sequel now. Bye! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A change from the usual. February 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this story. It was a complete change from all the other Scottish historical romance books written. Plot lines were unpredictable and there was humor throughout. I loved it and would recommend it.

I rarely smile or chuckle out loud while reading but did so often while engrossed this book. It was fun with just enough swashbuckling to add a bit of suspense factor and just enough sex to make it a bit hot. Very well written and, something I also rarely find, exactly the right length! Not so long you start getting antsy to finish it but not so short you feel cheated (although I would have preferred having the next book available immediately).

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining! April 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot and characters were pretty similar to the series Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, so I found that I kept comparing.
