Book Review: The Highlander's Folly

A brave fifteenth-century Highlander fiercely devoted to his foster family, Hunter of clan MacKintosh can defeat any man in battle. Thanks to his fae gifts, he can read the intent of his opponents and guess their next moves. But when the faerie Madame Giselle sends Hunter to the present day, he stumbles into a staged battle and rescues a young knight—only to discover that the knight is a woman, and she’s anything but a damsel in distress.

Meghan McGladrey learned martial arts and sword fighting from her father, a time-traveling Highlander himself. To Hunter’s surprise, Meghan is as skilled as any knight. When both of them are pulled back to the fifteenth century, Meghan becomes desperate to return to her time. Hunter, who is pledged to another, begins to fall for the beautiful, brave warrior as they fight side by side against a common enemy. Now, he must decide which matters more: his honor, or following his heart.

There are times when I want to just sit down and read a book for pure fun.  One that will take me away from it all while renewing my belief in the power of love and how men can be blind regardless of the era.  THE HIGHLANDER'S FOLLY succeeded on all counts.   

It is a fun time-travel story with a bit of the paranormal tossed in with the fae.  The pacing is smooth, the characters vivid and the dialogue witty.  It's the perfect bit of fluff when you are looking for a bit of brain candy.  And it has men with kilts!
