Guardian of Scotland

Publisher’s Description:

A man’s life can fall apart in an instant…

Tougher than oxhide, Lachlan Wallace can take about anything except a breakup call from his wife two minutes before competing in the Karate Championship of the World. Arriving home with a loss, he agrees to watch his uncle’s cat over the holidays. Or so he thinks–until he awakes on a fourteenth century battlefield beside a woman fighting for her life.

Never underestimate a woman’s determination…

Taken from her at the age of two, Lady Christina de Moray hasn’t seen her son in thirteen years. While traveling with Robert the Bruce’s army to exchange an English prisoner for the lad, a battle erupts. Losing the fight, Christina is rescued by a mysterious warrior while the English escape with her son yet again.

And never bet against the potency of passion…

Left with no way back to the twenty-first century, Lachlan agrees to help Christina rescue the lad from his English captors. If the heir is not returned by Christmas next, the Bruce will make his decision whom to grant the de Moray lands, including Lady Christina’s hand. Once his duty is fulfilled, Lachlan hopes to discover a way home–as long as he keeps his mind on the goal and ignores his growing love for the spirited woman who gives him her trust–and her heart.

My Thoughts:

I grow more in love with books by Amy Jarecki with every new one I read. 

This cover caught my eye and I just had to read it.

This is book #3 of the Guardian of Scotland series. I own one of the others in paperback, but this is the first one I’ve actually read of this series. I have read one other book by this author for review through NetGalley and although I gave that title a 5 star rating I still feel this one was better.

This tale begins with our hero who has recently received a break up call from his wife suddenly being thrust back in time to medieval Scotland. Talk about a surprising event. His time in the past begins near Christmas and stretches out for a year with many things he previously did not know about himself and his linage being revealed along the way.

I found this to be among my favorite time travel books. I would compare it favorably with one of my favorite authors, Lynn Kurland books in her MacLeod Family Series like “A Dance Through Time” & “The Traveler”.

As I indicated I gave “The Valiant Highlander” a 5 star rating and this one is it’s equal if not better. I am giving “The Time Traveler’s Christmas” 5 stars as well.

I received a digital ARC of this book directly from the author before being approved for this title through Netgalley and also from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. My thanks goes out to Amy Jarecki for sending me an ARC while I was still awaiting approval for this title.

He, however, seeks a marriage of convenience with a sensible woman with whom he can live on honest terms.
