Highland Fling tells the story of ER doctor Kate Wexford and her trip backwards through time into the arms of Scottish Laird, Darach MacTavish. Kate is the typical 21st century heroine (lonely, without family, married to her job and inferior in her own eyes) who pines for a man in a painting. After hearing that the man she physically longs for was killed over two hundred years ago at the Battle of Culloden, Kate is pushed into the painting by the strangely perceptive curator, Hamish. Falling back in time Kate lands naked in MacTavish's bed. At this point, the story was going well. Kate had gone back in time, was missing the conveniences of the 21st century and was falling in love with Darach.
However, when the two decide to go forward in time to find out about the Battle of Culloden and how to keep Darach alive, all went wrong. LaBrecque didn't allow for any conflict in the book. Every time something came up a neat and tidy (and unbelievable) solution appeared for the hero and heroine. When the two arrive back in the museum, Hamish awaits with a perfect set of clothes for Darach and Darach shows no shock at 2000 Atlanta. Once arriving, Laird MacTavish learns how to surf the internet within five minutes, can read present day English with no problems and can cook a full meal with no experience and only a cookbook to guide him.
The ridiculous turns downright outlandish after Darach leaves Kate to go back and save his people. She has period clothes made and packs bags to take back with her. She arrives naked the first time but returns the second fully clothed and with suitcases to boot. With no conflict to speak of, convenient solutions at every turn and an alpha laird who dreams of writing poetry *gag, gag* this book flops. And, aren't Blazes supposed to be hot? Highland Fling was lukewarm at best.
Heck - I'd travel back in time 250 years to hook up Darach too!! Cute, very steamy time travel. I enjoyed it.
I am not a real big fan of the go to sleep and wake up in a differnt time books but this one was great
Time Travel, Scotland, Blaze...what more could you ask for?!
The second book in the Perfect Timing series. This book stands alone although it is in a series about time travel. Hunky Scotsman from 1744 meets Dr. from 2006! Enjoyable read.
Wow!!! I really expected this to be so-so, predictable or kind of goofy. It was a bit at the start, but then it was really, really good. Sweet, romantic love affair set in difficult circumstances. Recommended.
Great time-travel read...ER doc Kate Wexfor is used to expecting the unexpected. But even she isn't ready for this...one minute she's visiting a local museum, the next she is in the painting -- Naked, in a delicious man's bed!
Time travel set in Scotland - with humor both intentional and accidental
I truly enjoyed this book. It was very funny and I laughed all the way though it and read this book in one day couldn't put it down. Great read.
Please someone push me into a painting and let me land naked in front of Darach McTavish! If only.........
E.R. physician Kate Wexford is used to expecting the unexpected. But even she isn't ready for this... One minute she's visiting her local museum, lusting after a man in a painting Darach MacTavish, Laird of Glenagan. A man who died at Culloden more than 250 years ago. Then the next thing she knows, she's in the painting with him...in his bed...naked!
Laird Darach MacTavish has enough to worry about without being ambushed by beautiful women. Still, he has to admit, he's never met or enjoyed more a lass like his Katie. It's too bad she's a little daft. Because Katie's insisting she's been sent back in time to save his life. Ha! Darach would like to see her try that is, if he decides to let her out of his bed....
