The first in a new, unique and very exciting series, Maeve Greyson mixes magic, highlanders, a touch of mystery and historical romance together into a big pot and comes up with a story that I read straight through without coming up for air.
My Highland Lover
Trudie is busily running a homeopathic store in Kentucky. There’s a little twist, Trudie was actually born in the 13th century, and has time-hopped to modern day. But, her grandmother has plans for Trudie back in their homeland, and she convinces Trudie to return and help to sort out some issues in the highlands.
Gray McKenna is the new chieftan of the clan, and he’s got more than clan welfare on his mind. His parents were murdered, and he is determined to exact revenge for their deaths. Believing he has a traitor in the clan is only one of his issues, because out of nowhere a woman has appeared. Her beauty and the mystery that surrounds her appearance is not to be denied, and soon Gray’s focus is split between Trudie and his need for revenge.
The interaction (and introduction) of these two was marvelous: neither was quite prepared for the instant attraction, nor how well suited they are for one another. Trudie is not thrilled to lose the mod cons she has come to enjoy, but her belief in her grandmother’s opinion that there is something for her to do in her own time have her convinced to give it her all. Completely modern in her approach, her stubbornness and her openly expressed opinions, Gray is flummoxed even as he is intrigued and frustrated.
Bit by bit Greyson weaves the tale, as Trudie reveals more of herself and her abilities she is able to see the hurts that have come to Gray, and the fierceness with which he intends to fulfill his role as chieftain. With a tiny hiccup in the flow as the focus shifts away from our couple and their electric chemistry to solving the murders and some interesting and surprising revelations the story soon regains traction and becomes a mad dash to the end. Passionate and emotional with several moments that will leave you breathless, Greyson has created a book that is hard to put down and even harder to forget. I can’t wait for the next in the series.

Maeve Greyson unleashes a thrilling tale of magic and desire as a feisty Southern gal falls into the arms of a rough-hewn Highland chieftain.
As the proprietor of a homeopathic store in rural Kentucky, Trulie Sinclair knows that her neighbors think she’s strange—but they have no idea how strange she really is. Trulie was born in Scotland in the thirteenth century to a line of time-traveling Highlanders. When Trulie’s grandmother convinces her to return to their homeland, Trulie jumps back in time, right onto the powerful chest of Gray MacKenna. Just as his steely good looks send ripples through her body, their fierce attraction will send ripples through the ages.
After his parents murdered, Gray is consumed by thoughts of revenge. As the new chieftain of the MacKenna clan, he has reason to believe that there’s a traitor in his midst, and nothing—not even the bonny lass who suddenly drops from the sky—can distract him from his single-minded pursuit of the culprit. But when Gray learns that this sassy beauty possesses gifts beyond the sparkle in her eye, he allows his gaze, and his heart, to linger. While he hunts for the murderer, Gray finds in Trulie a precious companion—and a timeless love.
