An archaeologist with a zest for life finds herself stranded in small-town North Carolina—with a brooding Highland hunk who’s straight out of ancient Scotland.

Ramsay MacDara wishes the goddesses had left his arse back in the tenth century. That way he never would have met the gold digger who made a fool out of him. A loner at heart, Ramsay is riding his beloved horse through the woods near his family’s North Carolina theme park, Highland Life and Legends, when he hears tires squealing—followed by a thud—and rushes to the scene to help. That’s when he sets his eyes on a pair of long legs sticking out of the moon roof of a car. His interest piqued, the rest of her will soon arouse his greatest desires . . . and deepest fears.

Archaeologist Katie Jenson is on a six-month sabbatical from her job at Princeton University. Following the death of her beloved father—whose dying request was for Katie to live life to the fullest—she’s headed to a friend’s beach house in North Carolina. But a momentary distraction takes her off the road and on the journey of her life . . . with a sex god in a kilt at her side. Ramsay’s passion is the stuff of legend—and it just may be Katie’s greatest discovery.

Transplanted from his home in the highlands in the tenth century Ramsay would be happier if he could return to his own time.

This is the third book in this time travel series. I have read all three and they just keep getting better. This book is an interesting twist on Time Travel Romance and even if you missed books 1 & 2 you wouldn’t be lost because each one reads well as a standalone.
This is a not to be missed series if you like hunky highlanders, a great deal of magic and unexpected romance thrown in for good measure.
The characters fit the bill in this book set in the mountains of North Carolina. A very fitting venue for a transplanted family of tenth century highlanders.
I gave this book 5 of 5 stars for storyline and character development. If I could I would give this one 5.75 stars because it is better than the other in this series I gave 5 stars.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Humorous by play make this a can’t put down tale.

Publisher’s Description:

Most weddings might be joyous occasions, but Hamish’s older brother is marrying…a commoner. Never mind that he’s engaged to an earl’s daughter, and they’ll lose their family’s estate if he marries someone else. Hamish will just have to find a way to stop the wedding.

Georgiana Butterworth is startled when a handsome Scot breaks into her bedroom and brandishes money. Evidently he’s mistaken her for her newly engaged sister and is trying to bribe her into not marrying his brother. Georgiana knows one thing: she won’t permit this man to ruin her sister’s chance for everlasting happiness.

Hamish may be determined to stop the wedding, but Georgiana is intent to make certain the wedding happens, no matter what she has to do to distract him.

My Thoughts:

I loved this newest book by Bianca Blythe. This first book in this be series stems from the previous series and is delightful from page one.

When Hamish receives a wedding invitation to his brother, the dukes wedding to the wrong lass he makes it his mission to stop the wedding. After all his older twin brother is already betrothed to another.
His mission to stop this wedding leads to a tale with hysterical by play between this hero and the heroine, sister to his brothers bride.

This humorous tale is one for my keeper shelf. I found it engaging from the first chapter.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5 flames. There is only one intimate scene and it is mild.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Looking back to the other sister’s story.

Publisher’s Description:

Charlotte Butterworth may be on her first London season, but she already knows she will never marry. Nothing interests her as much as numbers, and numbers seem to be of absolutely no interest to anyone else. And then there’s…the secret.

Callum Montgomery, Duke of Vernon, can marry the best. He’s handsome and charming and perfect. In fact, he’s been betrothed to the darling of the ton since he was seven, even if he does keep on putting off the wedding. 

When the roguish Duke of Vernon gains possession of some terrible, utterly shocking news about Charlotte, Charlotte needs to act quickly to keep the duke from revealing her secret.

My Thoughts:

Reviewed October 8, 2018

We first met this couple at the end of Don’t Tie The Knot, Hamish and Georgiana’s story. Now we get to see how Charlotte and Callum met and came to wed.
It is an interesting story but by no means a sweet/clean novella so if that is what you are looking for steer clear.
Most of the books I have read by this author contain little or no intimate scenes. This one isn’t like that. The intimacy is somewhat graphic and heated.
I liked this short read of less than 200 pages.
I gave it 4.4 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 (warm) of 5 flames.

What is Flora hiding from?

Publisher’s Description:

Flora has been masquerading as a French maid for years. Though she despises having to hide her skill at the piano and has no innate fondness for mending, she is happy to no longer be on the run. When a handsome earl who sent butterflies fluttering through her chest as a child discovers her French is atrocious, Flora is in immediate need of a new position, lest her true identity be discovered.

Christmas has never been Lord Wolfe McIntyre’s favorite season. His parents never celebrated it, and he never thought he would succumb to sentimentality as an adult. After all, he runs a gaming hell. But after his sister’s engagement is broken, Wolfe vows to host a magnificent holiday ball so his sister can find a husband before the next season. The only problem? His lack of knowledge about the holiday. 

Wolfe is shocked when his friend’s maid appears at his manor house in Scotland. When he hired a Christmas consultant, he was expecting a stern Bavarian woman with a knowledge of Yule logs, not an alluring young woman whom he last saw claiming a blatantly false identity and who seems distressed at seeing him. Wolfe is even more shocked when he discovers he… desires her. Earls are certainly not supposed to find their servants appealing, no matter how much they fill their homes with Yuletide joy and music. But perhaps there’s a reason Flora looks familiar…

Why does Flora seem so familiar and what is she hiding from.

This is a delightful holiday romance with a touch of humor. This is the shortest read of the three books in this series and is easily read in one sitting.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.

This short tale has just enough sensuality and humor that you should breeze through the read.
