Book Two focuses on Arran Connall the younger brother in the Connall Clan. Arrann is notorious as the free-wheeling, hard-loving, and heavy-drinking, life-loving Connall brother. The opposite of his brother Eoin featured in "Love Beyond Time". However, in Book One when Arran meets who he believes to be the adult Blaire MacChristy he falls head over heels after one passionate kiss.
Blaire finds the secret spell room and ends up sending herself to modern day Edinburgh. She quickly becomes discouraged with the modern appliances and expectations of the people around her. She is, however, fascinated by the ease of the clothing. About the time she is unsure what to do she is visited by Brianne and Eoin who have traveled forward to get her. They have risked time travel to retrieve in order to save Arran who they believe is slowly killing himself.
While they are away Arran is "talked" into marrying an unattractive young woman to help save her family's castle and clan. The young woman believes it is so her lover will marry her after Arran is killed. The plan is instead meant to kill both of them.
A review for a book that a reviewer deemed so well written and enjoyable could easily give "it" all away. It's difficult not to do just that. On the other hand it feels wrong to leave out so much. I want to tell readers of this review--wait until you see what happens to Blaire when . . . wait until Arran gets caught up in . . . Eoin is so funny when . . . Arran almost dies when . . . The Connall Clan has to watch their back because . . . I wanted to rip that crazy SOB's throat out when . . .
It's a good escape read. The series is great. Bethany Claire knows how to tell a story. She knows how to keep characters breathing from book to book even though each book features a different set of characters. Readers of romance will enjoy these books. Readers of time-travel romance will really enjoy these books. Readers of time-travel romance featuring gorgeous Scottish landscapes, castles, and Highlanders will swoon.
In part of the book, Bri ends up returning to the present for a short time and discovers that her best friends new husband is cheating on her. She doesn't bother telling her friend, instead only hopes that she finds out sometime during their marriage. In my opinion, that was a really crummy thing to do and lowered my estimation of Bri's character considerably.
As for the hero of this book, I thought him to be a terrible person. He ends up in a marriage of convenience, because he thinks that he cannot have Blaire as his wife. Blair comes back to the past and confesses her love to him, only to find out that he has already married another. He decides to start cheating on his wife with Blaire. He takes Blaire's virginity and essentially makes her his mistress on the side until he finds out his wife if pregnant, then casts Blaire aside to become an honorable husband and father.
In another of their love scenes (while he's having sex with Blaire) he proceeds to talk about all of his previous conquests and what he did with them in bed.
Overall I thought he lacked with very little honor towards both Blaire and his wife. I expected more after the first book.
I also have to add that I was disappointed in Blaire's behavior and reactions to "the love of her life" and his total disregard for her and his wife. I expect more from my heroines.
