Book Summary

Heart of a Highlander

Former Staff Sergeant Ian Mackay didn’t care if he lived or died. He’d left what really mattered strewn across Afghanistan three years ago. All the self-help groups and doctors in the world couldn’t assuage his guilt. But when an accident takes his life and Fate steps in with an offer to fix what was once unfixable, he jumps at the second chance to save his men. Now he’s stuck in a strange land, in an even stranger time, and expected to bed his equally strange but desirable new bride. Healer Aila Gordan of the Sutherland clan thought her betrothed dead, had even seen his lifeless body the night before their wedding. Why then is her sworn enemy, Ian Mackay, standing before the priest, waiting for her to repeat the vows that would make her his wife? The fairies must have possessed his body, a frightening notion, indeed. But marriage to the handsome laird, possessed or otherwise, couldn’t be any worse than living in her brother’s castle where, like all women in 1643 Scotland, she has no freedom. And if the kiss at the altar is any indication, she could just steal the heart of a highlander.

What readers say about the book🧐

Ian McKay is home from Afghanistan struggling with guilt and PTSD. When he dies in a car accident, Fate sends him back in time to Scotland.Alina is marrying a man her brother hates for an alliance. Ian MacKay is known as lazy and a womanizer. When he drinks himself into a stupor on the night before the wedding, she goes to check on him and finds him dead on the floor. So she is supremely surprised to find him alive and well on her wedding day. She’s convinced a sidhe has possessed him. Especially when Ian’s personality has completely changed.Ian struggles to get used to being in 16th century Scotland, and Alina wonders if she’s married a demon. Especially since the way he makes her feel is out of this world. The book alternates from both their POVs so it’s funny to see them react so differently to the same thing.I loved the authors previous book Time for a Highlander. So I was glad to see that the second book in her series is just as good as the first. I like seeing the guy going back in time, it’s usually the woman who is out of place. The romance is fun and it’s not a repeat of the first book. And like last time, I loved the ending.If you’re wanting a time travel romance, I recommend this series.
