Loved how passionate Bern and Caitlin are about each other and everything else. They are real characters and not cardboard cut-outs.
There's lots of action too which means that the book is hard to put down.
I'll be reading the second one in the series for sure.
⏳Time travel, 💜romance and Scotland go together really well in this story of modern girl Caitlin and her medieval hunk of a Highlander Bern. Well-written, with a good pace, some thrill of battle and danger, and a glimpse into the hardships of daily life in rural medieval Scotland when the Viking invasions are winding down and before the age of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. I thought the modern heroine's reactions to the lack of hygiene and health care in medieval times was realistic. Not too much angst but enough to inspire my sympathies for Bern, who suffers uncertainty about his ability to keep his odd but beautiful Caitlin from leaving him. The poor guy, used to being in control of his clan, finds Caitlin a sweet enigma with a vocal mind of her own. Not too racy, but the couple do have their moments...😉. And, a plus for me, the Highland dialect is present but not overdone so the conversations are easy to read and understand.
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
I love time travel because it's always fun to see how the author can make a person out of time feel really lost and this was no exception. I also like Highlander stories because anything is possible in the wilds of Scotland. But no one ever said 1263 was a good year for a modern woman and this was no exception. Characters were well developed, although I thought Caitlin was too much a modern woman (it's surprising she wasn't burned at the stake a couple of times). Still there was romance, twists and turns and battles while she's trying desperately to return to her own time and Bern is determined to keep her. Period. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).
I found the language to be stilted in many places; the book didn't read naturally for me. At times, it felt like to me that the author was trying to mimic Outlander’s Jamie’s speech patterns for Burn. The author made some strange word choices, and for one in particular, I wondered if it was truly a word that a Scot would have said back then. The numerous sex scenes were often written in ways that made me cringe at the words chosen. There are many issues with grammar, punctuation, and usage. Commas seem to be particularly problematic.
With the popularity of Outlander, time travel Highlander romance has become a trendy subgenre of romance. There are some good ones out there, but this did not impress me as one of them.
I received a free copy of this book, but this did not affect my review.
