My Tempting Highlander(A Highland Hearts Novel) by Maeve Greyson
Overview by Publisher:
Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched all he cherishes turn to dust—more than once. For hundreds of years, he’s been trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and he’s being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows he’s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded creature’s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his eyes—a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.
I have been following this series since the start so I was so happy to get the next book to read! I have fallen hard for time travel novels, so this series has definitely hit the spot!
What is different about this book compared to the first one is that there is more supernatural elements to it. But what doesn’t change is the lust between a man and a woman.
I loved how the book gets going. Ronan gets sent forward in time to convince Mairi to come back to his time. I adored how challenging and weird the modern world is for him. His first car ride was laugh out loud funny! As soon as they meet, there is a spark between Ronan and Mairi – like literally a spark. Mairi is the woman that Ronan has been searching for to break the curse.
Mairi falls for Ronan, but then the drama starts. Ronan withholds key information, Mairi feels used and lied to, and on it goes. While they have off the charts passion between them, the times when they aren’t doing it, they are sparring. Mairi is incredibly defensive and at times I wanted to shake her. While Ronan doesn’t share the whole deal with her, he does so for really good reasons.
The secondary characters are wonderful! In the modern times, Mairi’s sister and aunt are just hilarious and amazing. In the past, Mairi has a whole castle full of family that support the plot and keep things interesting. Most notably, they keep Mairi in the past where she is needed.
Ronan may be a couple of hundred years old, but he is no old timer in the sack. He displays his prowess flawlessly and Mairi is one lucky lady. He falls hard for her and definitely uses sex as an anchor for their budding relationship. He gives Mairi such great orgasms that I am amazed she had the brain power left to find holes in his story.
I am really looking forward to the next book featuring the final sister and her adventure. This series has been solid and entertaining. If you are into time travelling and Highlanders, then this is for you!
