Ordered book because of the 4 star rating. It's not. I felt the story lacking and ridiculous one to many times. Read Diana Gabaldon's "The Outlander" instead.

This Highland story wasn't all that interesting to me, I prefer her Fairy stories.

Entertaining read although not particularly edifying. Adrienne is taken back in time from the 1990's to the early 1500's where she can somehow easily speak with their Irish Brogue, everyone talks like they do today, everyone knows what coffee is (and they even have some), and she isn't immediately declared a witch by superstitious peasants.

The pacing of the story was a bit off, not much carried the action except a constant circling of hero and heroine in a battle of wills and sex. The inexplicable choice of the author to have Hawk's brother bear the same name as the heroine just for a silly line early in the story. The Cuban maid back in the 1990's whose presence does nothing for the story except explain why the cat isn't dead but not how Adrienne can afford a maid or a house with security or how she isn't in jail.. Some sexy scenes although heavy on the flowery prose and light in realism. Overall an easy light read but not an author whom I will rush back to read.

Moning writes very beautiful descriptions, but the story itself was just ok.
