Mackenzie Stewart’s in Scotland for a much-needed vacation. During the castle tour, Mackenzie becomes completely enamored with a painting of one of the previous lairds. Two gentlemen come up behind her and, begging her pardon, they kidnap her, dragging her through time.
The men are sorcerers attempting to end a feud that has plagued their lands for years. Their patron has begun to dabble in the black arts, and between his irrational thirst for power, and his dark secret, the sorcerers are frightened. They believe Mackenzie can break the Stewart curse. They try to convince her to play along with their crazy scheme: marriage to the evil John Campbell.
Before Mackenzie can protest, her carriage is halted and the door thrown open. For a split-second she is arrested by the same beautiful piercing blue eyes that belonged in an oil painting.
Mackenzie then finds herself the victim of a second kidnapping!
Her new captor, however, does nothing but tempt her body and her temper. Believing her to in fact be the betrothed of his mortal enemy the Campbell, Connor originally sets out to capture his enemy’s betrothed. He never thought he would be so attracted to her that he’d want to keep her.
Two simple words can sum it up—LOVED IT! Connor MacRae is a wickedly sexy highlander who knows how to make me purr and if I were in his presence I’d breathlessly sigh as I told him, “I canna take it any longer, take me now—here—against the wall!” Mackenzie Stewart is a determined woman who makes me want to shout “You-Go-Girl!” Imagine for a moment that you are thrust 200 years in the past to learn you are the only person capable of ending a curse, to put an end to warring clans. Would you stay and help or just enjoy your little vacation (and a little dilly-dally with Connor) and wait until the portal opens for your return to present day? Would nightmares that have plagued you your whole life be an influencing factor as to whether you help or not? This is the decision that Mackenzie is faced with—well, except for the dilly-dally part, that’s all me :-) So, with that said…picture a hottie highlander in a kilt with his sword (umm…I’ll leave it up to you as to which sword you want to picture) and get ready for transport to a different time.
Each time I started to read, I was instantly transported to Scotland 1792; rolling greens, lochs, forests and crisp air tickled my senses. Although Castle Eileen Donan could be quite drafty at times, the romantic tension between Connor and Mackenzie seemed to keep it quite warm and cozy! Even though interruptions from phone calls, children, etc., have a way of dizzyingly yanking you back to 2011—the Highland Hussy has a knack for drawing you back to right where you were.
