A laird trapped between centuries… Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he’d ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world. Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side…

A woman changed forever in his arms… Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern—to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she’d ever seen? Or that once he’d kissed her, he wouldn’t let her go? Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to sixteenth-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them … and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves…

This might be my favorite of this series so far. I loved the plot of this one so much. There was so much to it. I loved how it incorporated quantum physics into the time travel. Now, I always love the men in this Highlander series, but Drustan really stole my heart. He was just great. I also really liked Gwen. She was definitely my favorite heroine in this series. We’ll see if anyone else shows up that I like more.

Like the others in the series, the plot and characters are really engaging. I love the banter that Moning writes between her characters. Her characters tend to be stubborn, but very sincere. There was a point when I thought the pace got kind of slow, but the ending really made up for that. I absolutely loved the ending. It totally won me over and turned what would have been a three or four star rating to a five star rating. This is the kind of series I could come back to later and love it just as much the second time.

Phil Gigante, again, did an excellent job. He is seriously one of my favorite voice actors. I just love that brogue!

This book contains profanity and sexual content. 18 and up, please!
