“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

The story has lots of,action and intrigue that keep it exciting and interesting, and the dialogue, mishaps, and misunderstandings that arise from the fish-out-water scenario of a 21st-century woman being suddenly hurled into the 15th century are pretty funny. This novel,is a quick read perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.
I'm ready for the next book in the series.
She has a feisty strength few women possess. She's highly intelligent with plucky independence. She's survived tragedy and come out the victor. I absolutely adored her. Even though she's "gifted", she steers clear of anything supernatural. Alethia Goodsky can read the energy of people and she can tell when they're truthful or lying - - she's a "truthsayer". She's an exotic beauty with her gorgeously long dark chestnut hair and stormy gray eyes. Alethia is half Anishinaabe Native American and half Scots. She's kind hearted and proud.... generous, talented and genuine....and she's a 21st Century modern woman thrown back into the past...locked in the 15th Century.
Malcolm MacKintosh is a Scots Warrior and heir to Moigh Hall. He's big and blonde with piercing crystal blue eyes. Let me just pause right here and say "rawr"!! He's been groomed his entire life to be the next Laird of Clan MacKintosh and he takes his predestined role very seriously. Malcolm is the typical domineering, arrogant, overbearing, controlling Scotsman arse. But he's also wisely intelligent, honorable and thoughtful with his deep caring for his Clan. He's strong and hilarious...continually dumbfounded and completely baffled with Alethia - - as soon as he thinks he's got her all figured out - - she pulls a 180º on him. It's absolutely and deliciously hilarious to "watch" as he's brought to his knees in his confusion.
This story had all the elements of a solid Historical Romance with a bit of comic-relief on the side. Simply hysterical dialogue at times. It was so well thought out and developed and this Author puts so much attention to every detail. Ms. Longley weaves an intriguingly delightful and captivating story using a well played foundation. Strong characters are described perfectly and reinforced throughout the story leaving no doubt and no confusion as to why these beloved characters react (in certain situations) as they do. Never a dull moment here! Dialogue is original, witty and humorously brilliant; flowing succinctly with perfect precision and timing. Brava Ms. Longley. Encore!
I loved that this was time travel with so many different twists. The H and H are so well developed and wonderful that you fall in love with the both very quickly. Additional characters are just as great. A beautiful love story with just enough lovemaking. You MUST read this book!!!

The only small negative for me was the graphic sex scenes I felt they were unnecessary and added nothing to the story. Other than that highly recommended
For example :
The early medieval period should not be referred to as the renaissance as this is a term used to describe a style not a time. Also the Scottish clans did not have knights, this was a Norman concept.
It is a pity the author relied a little too much on renaissance fairs for her info as the accuracy would have made it a great book.
The characters are well crafted, you will find yourself emphasizing with them, routing for them and wishing for their happy ever after.
Loved the heroine, strong and sassy, able to fight her corner. You'll find yourself falling in love with the hero, very macho, but with a humble heart, wise, strong,a true warrior........yummy!
Don't miss this book.
