"While there are serious and dramatic elements, there are also light hearted moments that bring a balance to the books. Traci and Iain both have introspective moments about their lives and how they perceive the world around them. I really enjoyed that as it really created depth to the characters and made them multi faceted."
"...a blend of lightness and passion as Traci and Iain flirt and dance around each other, but there is also a deeper story as two people who have been hurting from their pasts are able to understand and help heal each other. The historical backdrop is painted in with vivid color and authenticity while not taking over the story. I loved the sightings of real life people, places, and events with the fiction to make it a stronger story."
--Sophia Rose, DelightedReader.com
"...entertaining, fun and sexy read...The sex scenes are hot and the flirtation is fun."

It was so nice to read a Scottish, time travel novel whereby the hero wasn't so ALL BEING as Laird, Warrior, Lover, and Protector. I enjoyed watching Iain, the male counterpart of this story, grow in thought, confidence, and mind. The innocence he brought to the story with his lack of knowledge how strong he really is, kept me as a reader rooting for him to understand his capability. Everyone around him saw how worthy he was, except him. With each Chapter he grew and realized all he does for his clan and how much his Uncle, whom he gave leadership, was destroying it. With the help of a strong woman, friends, and realization, the growth of these characters with keep you cheering them on with Pom poms from the comfort of your favorite reading place. Not just another time travel Scottish romance. This story is about learning about yourself, trusting in what you've learned and taking a leap of faith. I highly recommend if this is a genre you enjoy. It comes with a feeling of triumphant in yourself..
You can look at my reviews for Angela Quarles’ other works, I’ve read them all, and can honestly say that I love her voice. Her characters are warm and funny, but also flawed and entirely relatable. In this book, Traci and Iain both go through tremendous growth and it was flirty, sassy, and fun to watch. And, it was also exciting because this book has a gender role reversal of those typically found in romance novels: Iain is a really vulnerable guy that just wants to find love and it is Traci that has far more emotional barriers and mental blocks to overcome. Don’t get me wrong, Iain has to figure out who he is and what role he wants to play in his Clan, but it feels like he really settles in for the long haul way before Traci. Readers will fall in love with him way before Traci realizes she loves him, too.
Another thing I love about these books is the sense of setting and atmosphere. The descriptions of the valleys, the fog, the craggy mountains – Oy. It is enough to make you hear bagpipes in your sleep. They are very well written and you can easily visualize the settings of each location and an historical battle described in the book. While you don’t quite know what everyone had for breakfast that morning, you certainly get a lot of historical details about how weapons were used and how they handled, what the clothes looked and felt like, and all sorts of interesting facts – like wetting a plaid makes it into a windbreaker or how Highlanders fought in battles without their kilts (FREEBALLING IN BATTLE, PEOPLE! Google it. It really happened).
As for the plot, I quite enjoyed it. I loved the interactions between Traci and Fiona, watching siblings that weren’t that close as kids try to reconnect as adults is something I’ve been through myself. I loved the journey across Scotland to try and reunite the sisters. I loved watching Iain find his place in the Clan. And I loved watching the two villains meet their fates. And, yes, there are two. Oh, and have I mentioned the hawt schmexy times? Because *growl* yeah. They’re pretty great. Needless to say, spending a lot of time in Glenfidditch’s saddle helped Traci become a better cowgirl, if you know what I mean. *eyebrow waggle*
While this is the 3rd book in the series, it could be a stand-alone book. Though, because you do hear from Katy and Mr. Podbury, and there are a few mentions of Isabelle, it would be incredibly helpful to read the series in order. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Mr. Podbury and having him explain how the timelines and alternate worlds work. Time travel theory can really make you think, and get a headache if you think too much. This book explains things well and answers a few questions that had been bugging me for the last two books.
So, overall, yes, I loved this book. I highly recommend it to anyone that loves time travel, romances, time travel romances (obvz), Scotland, or hawt guys in kilts. It is a fun romp, an easy way to spend a few hours, and a great addition to this series.

Traci and her sister Fiona are on holiday in the Scottish highlands. During a night of drinking and partying, the two sisters bet $100 on the whether there were hot Scots in kilts in earlier times since they hadn’t found any in their current travels. Using the silver card case (from the previous books) they time travel back to 1689. They enter a local inn and Traci is sure she has won the bet because there aren’t any hot Scots to be seen. Then in walks Iain and his friend Duncan. The two men and two women sit down to do some more drinking and when Traci wakes up in the morning with a hangover to end all hangovers she finds out that not only did she have sex with Iain, they also were handfasted.
Her sister Fiona is nowhere to be found and when Traci goes looking for her she is chased by some of Iain’s clansmen. In a panic, she uses the case to time travel back to the present. She can’t stay there of course, she knows she has to go back to find her sister and she will need Iain’s help to do it.
Traveling back again she finds Iain and his men and is taken back to his home (where his uncle is the chieftain). During the course of the voyage, the two get to know each other better but both have been hurt in relationships before. To keep themselves from being hurt again they both flirt and play but refuse to get serious – that can only lead to pain.
While at the castle, something is not quite right. His uncle is keeping secrets from Iain and is suspicious of Traci and her missing sister, Fiona. In order to help explain why she must save her sister, Traci is forced to explain that she is a time traveler.
Iain, Traci, and Duncan set out to save Fiona. Their travels take them into dangerous territory and just when they are poised to rescue Fiona, his uncle has sent men to “help”. After a failed rescue attempt, they receive word that they are needed to fight for the King as part of the first Jacobite uprising. Iain must follow his chieftain’s commands and leave Traci to rescue her sister alone. Once the sisters are reunited, they return to the present to continue with their everyday lives.
But, is that enough for them? Is love more powerful than modern conveniences? If Traci opens her heart to Iain, will he reciprocate or just laugh it off? I’ll leave the reader to find the answers to those questions but will say that there was a surprise ending that I didn’t see coming.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it isn’t necessary to read the previous two books to enjoy this one. If you love time travel romances or hot men in kilts, this book is for you. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received as "advance copy reader" .
Outro livro muito legal dessa autora, com viagem no tempo e uma linda história romântica. Se voce gosta disso, todos os livros dessa serie must love sao fantasticos. Esse eu li e recebi como "advance copy reader" em troca de uma avaliação honesta. Gostei muito, embora meu preferido continue sendo o anterior. Neste a viagem é pra Escocia, cerca de 1690. Conhecemos Iain, um highlander super cativante e cheio de contrastes. A mocinha, Traci, chega do seculo 21 e cai nos braços do moço. A partir dai a historia acontece entre os dois no passado. A Traci e uma criatura um pouco irritante e tive dificuldade de entender algumas de suas atitudes. Apesar disso a historia flui bem e pode ser lida sem a necessidade de conhecer os livros anteriores da serie. A trama envolvendo a Fiona ficou um pouco solta e talvez seja mais explorada no proximo livro....no geral um livro cativante, que cumpre o que promete!
