Publisher’s Description:

Present-day North Carolina sings with the passions of the Scottish Highlands as a fiery, time-traveling Celtic warrior takes a stubborn tour guide for a wild ride.

Haunted by lost love, Grant MacDara still dreams of tenth-century Scotland. Nothing can soothe his aching heart—until a sharp-tongued, redheaded beauty leads a tour of senior citizens through his family’s North Carolina theme park, Highland Life and Legends. Though she’s the polar opposite of the lass he left behind, Joanna Martin is the most irresistible woman Grant has ever met. But when he decides that she’s worth the risk of loving again, he tries so hard to hold her close that she nearly slips through his fingers.

Forced out of her job as a pharmaceutical sales rep by a conniving ex, Joanna is trying to make the best of her quiet new life. But one glimpse of Grant—who wields an ancient hammer like it’s just another appendage of his chiseled body—convinces Joanna not to give up on love. The one thing she can’t do is outrun her past as a loser magnet. And although Grant seems to be the last honorable man left on earth, this mouthwatering stud needs a crash course in twenty-first-century women before Joanna can trust him with her heart.

My Thoughts:

Maeve Greyson has delighted me again with her witty can’t put down Time Travel Romance.

Joanna is in desperate straits. Force out of her very lucrative job as a pharmaceutical sales rep by a conniving ex, she is trying very hard to make the most of her new life and pay her bills, that is until she spies the total swoon worthy Scot who seems determined to make her his and control her. The one thing Joanna will not allow is being controlled.

Grant MacDara is haunted by all he left behind in 10th century Scotland. He may essentially have it much better here in 21st century North Carolina but he misses his home and all he left behind.

Imagine his surprising attraction to Joanna. She is after all a polar opposite to any woman he left behind but he finds himself determined to make her his.

I gave this newest book in Maeve Greyson’s Highland Protector Series 4.75 of 5.0 stars for a very imaginative storyline and character development. The hot intimate scenes score 4.75 of 5.0 flames.

Although this is the second book in this newest series it can easily be read as a standalone title.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher courtesy of NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Attending his mother’s wedding to their clan’s longtime ally is not Liam MacGregor’s notion of a grand occasion. Nor is her groom’s ridiculous pronouncement, naming Liam as his immediate successor. To worsen matters, Liam’s mother imparts a troubling secret she’s harbored for years which prompts Liam to question his very existence. To his chagrin, he finds himself thrust into a role not of his own choosing.

After her father’s untimely death and a plot to murder her younger brother, Venora MacNab flees her clan with her brother, Will, seeking refuge with Clan Fraser. For five years, Nora has safeguarded her and her brother’s privacy while living amongst their adopted clan. Unfortunately, the appointment of a new laird, coupled with a series of unsettling events, threatens to upset the safe, quiet life Nora’s built for herself and her brother.

Thrown together by circumstances out of their control, Liam and Nora forge a shaky alliance in the midst of treachery and murder plots as Liam learns to navigate his newfound responsibilities. During the course of events, the pair stumbles on to something else entirely. Something neither imagines possible—love.

Dear Reader,

Long before I started writing paranormal romance, I wrote historical romance novels as Deborah Raleigh. Now I’m thrilled to share my favorites with a whole new readership, including this breathtaking tale of forbidden desire. . .

Publisher’s Description:

A successful businesswoman, Miss Jane Middleton goes to London in search of a husband—and finds herself virtually ignored by the ton. But she soon concocts a daring proposition: she will pay notorious rake “Hellion” Caulfield to strike up a flirtation with her, thus bringing her to the attention of Society’s eligible gentlemen. The last thing she expects is a deliciously skillful seduction. . .

The toast of the ton, charismatic Hellion has eluded marriage for years. But when Jane bursts into his life with her outrageous scheme, her provocative figure, and her captivating eyes, Hellion is stunned to realize that his jaded interest is piqued—and his pursuit of her feels all too real. Has the ultimate bachelor finally found his match—between the sheets and beyond?. . .

Publisher’s Description:

A lowly gentleman farmer, Edward Sinclair has inherited the role of the Earl of Harrington. A more unlikely nobleman there has never been. For Edward’s stark masculinity and brute strength set him apart–and earn him the demeaning title of the Peasant Earl. . .

A spoiled heiress, Lady Bianca is known as the Ice Princess for toying with the affections of her suitors. But she has fallen for the one man her father won’t let her marry: a rogue with no fortune. When the Peasant Earl arrives in London with an even worse reputation, Bianca is ready to exact her revenge. But Edward sees through the beauty’s silly flirtations–straight into her heart. Soon, what begins as a game, becomes a contest of wills that demands complete surrender. . . 

I hope you enjoy reading these sensual, romantic tales as much as I enjoyed writing them! 

With love,
Alexandra Ivy
