    Cute time travel story I liked the writing but a lot of things didn t make too much sense regarding the actual time travel and the heroine s attitude about it I didn t like the hero for the most part Things were left unexplained and the magic aspect was confusing and somewhat silly I would trybooks by this author even though this one was just ok for me.

    Quite a good time travel, characters not as endearing as I would have liked but still worth a read.

    Ummm What Okay, so here s the deal I love the comedy and that Maddie has a backbone that could rival a Titan and hide as thick as the Great Wall of china, but I feel that they seem to be really wishy washy For example, Maddie would be extremely angry and rightfully so with Rowan, but then turns around, glances at abs and completely forgive him I mean I m no expert, but that s not how it s supposed to work Rowan Where to start He s a jerk, a sexist, and stupid in the way that Ummm What Okay, so here s the deal I love the comedy and that Maddie has a backbone that could rival a Titan and hide as thick as the Great Wall of china, but I feel that they seem to be really wishy washy For example, Maddie would be extremely angry and rightfully so with Rowan, but then turns around, glances at abs and completely forgive him I mean I m no expert, but that s not how it s supposed to work Rowan Where to start He s a jerk, a sexist, and stupid in the way that he jeopardizes his beneficial relationship with the woman who is handing him his clan s survival on a silver platter with health benefits An okay read to pass the time But a bad one for romance, time travel ingenuity, and consistency

    Wowin a bad way Rarely do I toss a book down and quit reading but this one did it to me Perhaps the author had a rough time with the first chapter and I should tough it out and try again, but I read about 10 15 pages and just said I cannot do it Unbelievable in that the craziest hings happen to her and instead of breaking down or throwing a fit, she just rides along.Thrown back in time, she somehow just assumes the guy who shows up is an old friend from high school that for some reason d Wowin a bad way Rarely do I toss a book down and quit reading but this one did it to me Perhaps the author had a rough time with the first chapter and I should tough it out and try again, but I read about 10 15 pages and just said I cannot do it Unbelievable in that the craziest hings happen to her and instead of breaking down or throwing a fit, she just rides along.Thrown back in time, she somehow just assumes the guy who shows up is an old friend from high school that for some reason decided to meet her in the wilderness and toss her on a horse Please The other reviews led me to believe this might be like Outlander but what I read couldn t be further removed

    this was an interesting book Unhappy woman, finds necklace and is called back to Scotland Timetraveling romances either work or they dont.I did like this one, even though he was stubborn, ignorant Yes the hero was ignorant in that I dont want to be my daddy way , but the comedy was amusing and the storyline was well written.
