Not as informatively written as her other time travels. If you haven't read about his brother first, you really won't know what was going on. And, as it says on the back, Patrick is the first to discover the portals, but his is NOT the first story written. It was good, but needed more of its own background. I HIGHLY suggest reading "A Dance Through Time" first. This book really is at it's best if you read Jamie's story first.

Patrick MacLeod is haunted by his past, by events he had no control over and wishes desperately he could change. He hasn't the heart for love, nor the time for rescuing maidens in distress of their own making. Until he sees a woman who touches his heart and stirs his soul...and makes him believe love might be possible after all.

For Madelyn Phillips, Scotland is the land of dreams, filled with magic, romance, and handsome Highland lords. Unfortunately, the reality of her dream vacation is no car, no luggage, and a pesky ex-fiance determined to shadow her every move. She thinks her dreams are in vain. Until she sees a man standing on a windswept moor, a Highlander full of secrets and longing, and Madelyn knows she has seen her destiny.

But the past isn't through with either of them, and it will take all the love each possesses to make their dreams come true...

OH MY GOSH, I loved this book so much that I am missing it already! It has been a while since I read a romance novel that was able to introduce new things that I've not read before or could predict. I LOVED this book and I am a new fan! I never thought to find a book that could hold a candle to "A Knight in Shining Armor", but it has happened! My life is complete .. This is a MUST read if you read to escape!

Attorney Madelyn Phillips has dreamed about a trip to Scotland for years; unfortunately, things haven't turned out exactly as planned. She was supposed to honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands with her new husband, Bentley Taylor III. That was before Bentley dumped her just weeks prior to their wedding, stole her clients and her money, and got her fired. Livid, Madelyn takes the trip anyway.

Upon arriving at a small highland inn, Madelyn learns that Bentley has shown up and taken her reservation. He says he's had second thoughts and wants them to share this trip together. Feeling sorry for poor Madelyn, the innkeeper lets her stay in a small unused room.

Patrick MacLeod has much to regret in his pastand since he was born in 1285, that past is extensive. Since his family discovered the secret to time-travel they've decided to settle in the 21st century. Patrick and Madelyn's first meeting is not auspicious, as Patrick snarls and snaps at her. However, once Patrick learns of Madelyn's predicament with the idiotic Bentley, he offers to show her around. Madelyn senses Patrick hides deep secrets, but she has no idea just how deep.

Wonderful story, with Kurland's enchanting characterizations and attention to detail. It's very easy to fall in love with the hero and to feel a sisterly affection for the heroine (and maybe just a wee bit envy, too!).

Madelyn Phillips and Patrick MacLeod's story combines time travel. intrigue, mystery, and humor with a very sweet romance. Although some times I felt very frustrated with Madelyn's mild ineffective responses to the antics of her former fiance,( bad guy Bently), this book kept me very interested from start to finish. For those of you who like your romance novels more G rated, this is a winner.

This is Patrick MacLeod's story. Patrick MacLeod being Jamie's brother (from Dance Through Time) and also born in medieval times, of course. He was hardened by an unfaithful wife, long before she died and made him a young widower. He's not ready to trust his heart to anyone, least of all a Yank! Madelyn was... well... she was experiencing, as she put it, a vacation-in-the-toilet.

But somehow they keep getting throw together. Patrick undertakes the mission of rescuing Madelyn from her vindictive ex-fiance, which she's more than willing to get him do. But echoes of destiny keep stirring whenever their together. And Madelyn doesn't quite know what to think of Patrick's combination of ruthlessness and laid-back nonchallance... of his passionate kisses and quiet reserve. Then destiny sweeps them back several centuries.

I like the way Lynn weaves echos of a past that hasn't happened yet with the present. It's a good time-travel story, with a few ghosts thrown in a secondary characters, although they don't affect the plot much at all. But I love it for the emotion you get to experience as Patrick and Madelyn fall in love.

Patrick MacLeod is haunted by his past. He hasn't the heart for love, until he meets Madelyn Phillips, who makes him believe love might be possible again.

A good story, but not one of my favorites from Ms. Kurland.
