When a friend of hers dies, she's given a sword in the man's will. One night, the heroine finds a hidden compartment and some sand inside than suddenly there's a very large very naked man in her bedroom. She's genially terrified and insists his leave. He takes the sword and his plaid and does as she asks but the cold and the fact he has no shoes bring him back. The heroine, a softy towards those in need, take him in. When she realizes that he's not from her time, she's shocked but it doesn't seem to marvel her as much as one would expect. The hero thinks she's a witch who's brought him forward in time and demands that she use her powers to send him back but when she makes it clear she has zero powers, they embark on a journey to find a way to send him home. But as they grow to know each other they fight the sense of loss when it comes time to part ways. The hero, obviously ignorant of current rules and customs has a tendency of being arrested. In fact, the pour man comes into contact with the police at least 3 times during the span of the novel. First for carrying a concealed weapon and fight the officer after being tazered. Second for illegally fishing for clams to make the heroine happy. And lastly for stealing 2 reindeer from the local zoo because he things to repay the heroine's kindness with 'bucks'. It was certainly comical and the hero had such an innocent childlike demeanor during even encounter with the law. I didn't particular find this book to be anything special or unique in any way. It's your typical time travel romance novel but it had little to no conflict other than the hero's struggle to get home and dealing with the history of the scots as we know it. It was a contemporary romance which means the hero and heroine mainly go shopping, or go to restaurants, stuff like that. The chemistry between the two character was tame and it was never an all consuming passion. They started out as friends and than t just sort of melted into a comfortable courtship. I was a little confused about the sword, as it's hinted In the beginning as needing a guardian but almost instantly the weapon is confiscated by the police and is never heard from again. The whole story felt like one of those horrible b movies on the lifetime channel. No substance to it, just some good old fashion holiday fun....barf. ( )

A HIGHLANDER FOR CHRISTMAS by Paula Quinn is delightful Medieval Scotland historical romance. A wonderful conclusion to the "Children of the Mist" series about the MacGregor clan,but far too short,an e-book novella.See,"Conquered by the Highlander","Tamed by the Highlander","Seduced by the Highlander", and "Ravished by the Highlander".Finlay Grant, the bard of the MacGregor clan, and a charmer has fallen in love with the the lass, Leslie Harrison,a lowlander who her and her family has come to the MacGregor clan to escape persecution,and she also finds love. But with family loyalty,she has been to betrothed to a Duke to save her family,who will do anything to find the MacGregor clan,including dishonoring a lass and her family. Fast paced and quick read. Ms. Quinn knows how to write with Scottish heroes,even if the hero is not a warrior. Powerful but fun story! Another hit for this author. A must for all who love Highlanders,warriors,Scotland,and Christmastime fun. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley. Details can be found at the author's website,Hachette Book Group,Grand Central Publishing,and My Book Addiction and More.

I enjoy reading time travel romances where the story takes place in present day. This one had a Highlander, and it was really well written. I like Sandy Blair's books. :) ( )
