Her Trusted Highlander by Jennae Vale
Series: The Mackalls of Dunnet Head #1
Genres: Historical Romance, Time Travel Romance
Katriona Hughes has no idea how she’s managed to find herself in 16th century Scotland, but she’s beginning to think the gigantic emerald gem she picked up on an archeological site may have had something to do with it. Wanting nothing more than to return to her own time, Kat is betrayed by the first person she meets and forced into a marriage with a loathsome stranger. Now running for her life, Kat meets the one man who deserves her trust, but can she give it to him.
Nick Mackall is happy to finally be back in his beloved Scotland after accidentally being transported to twenty first century San Francisco and spending the last two years of his life there. His home and family are calling to him, but things are not about to go smoothly for the handsome highlander as he meets a young woman fleeing her husband and an old foe returns from the dead. Two things are certain - he must gain the woman’s trust in order to save her and he must stop his foe from unleashing the power of an imprisoned sorcerer.
Time travel, a Scottish Laird, romance, and so much more! This is a novel that has it all for a paranormal romance lover. I love when Scottish Lairds make an appearance in books because they always seem to be so much bigger than life (I think I was born in the wrong time!) This is my first book by Jennae Vale and I must say that I enjoy it a lot. I really enjoyed that Nick had traveled as well as Katriona because it made things a little easier on the pair of them. The romance was very sweet and moved along at a great pace. My one issue was I would have loved to know more of the backstory but I figure this will come as the series moves along. It wasn’t that I was confused or lost I am just the type of person who wants all the information.
