Book Review: The Highlander's Vow

On the eve of her wedding, Sky Elizabeth, the earl of Fife’s eldest daughter, learns of her betrothed’s murderous plot against her. As she flees, Sky falls through a mysterious portal in time, landing at the feet of a twenty-first-century American knight.

Struan, the bastard son of the earl of Sutherland, escaped death through time’s portal once. Recognizing what has befallen the frightened woman, he vows to protect her even while Sky, with a trace of fae blood in her veins, senses his resentment.

Despite their growing attraction, she’s determined to find a way home to avert a clan war. Though he cannot deny his desire, he fears that helping her return to the past will surely lead to his demise. As the two work together, passion ignites and an unbreakable bond forms—but will it be enough to sustain them through the perils they’ll face in the past? Can their love have a future?

What's not to love about a good blend of historical and contemporary romance?  Especially when it is all mixed together with a great plot, fascinating characters and excellent dialogue.  While not totally historically correct as far as the timeline goes, the author herself notes this and besides this is a fictional story.

I fell in love with Sky who is very resilient woman who manages to deal with being thrown into a time that is far from her experience.  I also really enjoyed the Gordons who are a wonderful family who welcomed into their family with open arms. Of course, they did have experience with time travelers as Struan appeared in their lives from the past about a decade ago.

I really enjoyed THE HIGHLANDER'S VOW.  The pacing was spot on and held my interest throughout the entire story.  In fact, it was one of the tales that I didn't want to set aside for silly little things like work.  I think that my readers who enjoy time travel or historical romances would really enjoy this book.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
