I thoroughly enjoyed Highland Games. Lovely entertainment on a rainy afternoon.
I love this author and she knows that even though I don't read a lot of Highlander stories, I'm always up for one of hers! This one is no different.
Piper Grant is a good friend. Instead of taking her long awaited surf vacation in Hawaii, she's hopping on a plane to Ireland in her friend's place as a favor to her. Little does she know - it's a singles tour! Talk about awkward. But, even faced with immature frat guys, she convinces herself to enjoy the tour and find some fun. As they deboard the bus to revel in the Highland Games at Blair Castle, she feels hope for the first time. But once she's off, she can't shake the feeling of someone watching her.
As Colm MacRobert surveys Piper while she strolls the grounds, he can't believe two things: that he finally found his soul mate - and that he had to go 219 years into the future to find her. Now that he's found her, he only has a small window of time to convince her not only that they're meant to be together, but that she needs to leave her entire life behind and come back to 1793 with him to get married and save his entire village. Piece of cake, right?
My favorite part of this novella was definitely Colm. He's the epitome of the Alpha male without getting into Neanderthal territory. He knows how to kiss a woman and who could be that upset to leave the single life behind for a guy that swoon-worthy? Even if it's 200+ years earlier. The only thing that drove me crazy was the timeline. I personally have a really hard time buying the whole love at first sight/ let's get married within 48 hours thing. However, that being said, I really did love Piper and Colm together. They balanced each other out really well. He opened her eyes while she kept him grounded - because, well, Highlanders are notoriously bossy! Plus, did I mention he was a great kisser?
While short, it was a sweet story and I will definitely keep reading Ms. Hunsaker's Magic of the Highlands series!
*Book provided by author for review
Piper is stuck on a trip to Scotland with a singles tour group courtesy of her best friend, Katie. So long Hawaii trip and hello Scotland. This is where Piper and Colm meet.
Piper is smitten with Colm's looks and even more so with his hot kisses as he tries to woo her to go back in time. She eventually wonders if she's going insane with all of this time travel talk.
Apparently Piper is needed for the greater good of the MacRobert clan and just may be the long lost unknown daughter of the Grant clan. She may even have a brother. Grissal has some added interest in all of this as well, however, no one is sure what her motives in match making these two destined lovers truly is and she's not one to be trusted.
I thought this had a lot of potential and it started off with a great flirty highlander man. However, everything fell in the instant category making certain things unfold too fast for me and making them not believable. This could have been an awesome full story with a great story line.
I really liked the cast of characters and I even had a few laughs. It was an enjoyable read but the story needed to be fleshed out better for a short story or made in to a longer story.
I'm also questioning the F word being used by someone from the time of 1793.... Hmmm
Looking forward to more stories in this series.
3 STARS! Overall, this was a quick read, and one that I didn't mind. Even though it's a novella, I did feel that the story was too short, that things were pushed too quickly and many things were never really explained. If you've read the previous book in this series, this one will no doubt be a nice read.
