Book Review-True to the Highlander (The Novels of Loch Moigh Book 1)-Barbara Longley

Friday, November 6, 2020

Do you love Scottish Historical Romances? Do you love novels with Time Travel? This book has both with a bit of magic thrown in. I simply LOVED this book!!

When Alethia Goodsky is sent back in time to save a relative of an old hag--she honestly doesn't know how it happened but it did. One minute she was attending a Renaissance Fair in her time--then suddenly she was lying on the ground in 1423 and men are surrounding her! She is obviously frightened but plays it as well as she can.

Alethia is taken to the MacKintosh castle by Malcolm--the son of the laird. Eventually she figures she is not in danger but certainly does not like the way women are treated back then and fights it every chance she gets.

She finally somewhat settles in and then a fight between two clans begins. She manages to save her clan members and thinks that this is why she was brought here. Of course by now she has fallen in love with Malcoln and is worried that she will be sent back.

They hear that the old hag is in town and go to confront her.

There is a major twist in this tale which will make you smile--and there is a happily ever after!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Treachery rules the Highlands of 1423. With their king captured by the English, Scottish nobles plot to ransom James behind the back of the brutal regent holding their land in his iron grip. But not every clan wishes to see King James back on his throne…

Sitting atop this powder keg of bloodthirsty rivalries, Malcolm of clan MacKintosh takes the mysterious, lone maiden he finds along his road as a bad omen…though an undeniably beautiful one. When he attempts to save her from a rogue within his own garrison, she deftly brings Malcolm to his knees. Who is this willful lass who has so quickly laid siege to his heart?

Alethia Goodsky has met all kinds working at the New York Renaissance Festival, but no one like the fortune-teller who tasks her with a cryptic life-saving mission and flings her into the fifteenth century. Now Alethia must rely on her wits to unravel the mystery in this violent land. Malcolm has sworn to protect her, but her gifts may soon make her his protector. With enemies closing in, Alethia must choose between finding a way home…and remaining true to her Highlander.
