Book 2, Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands

From the “master of time travel romance”: Award-winning author Gwyn Cready continues her steamy Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands series

She needs a man—but only for a night
What do you get when you imbibe centuries-old whiskey—besides a hangover the size of the Highlands? If you’re twenty-first century ad exec Gerard Innes, you get swept back to 18th-century Edinburgh and into the bed of a gorgeous, fiery redhead. Gerard has only a foggy idea what he and the lady have been up to…but what he does remember draws him into the most dangerous and exhilarating campaign of his life.

Be careful what you wish for…
Serafina Seonag Fallon’s scoundrel of a fiancé has left her with nothing, and she’s determined to turn the tables. If she can come up with a ringer, she can claim the cargo he stole from her. But the dashing man she summons from the future demands more than a night, and Serafina finds it easier to command the seas under her feet than the crashing waves he unleashes in her heart.

Praise for Just in Time for a Highlander:
“Highly satisfying… filled with humor, clever schemes, and a wonderful cast of imaginative characters.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review.
“Wonderfully entertaining…romantic and wickedly witty…Cready has outdone herself.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
“RITA Award winner and master of time-travel romance Cready has done it again... Political intrigue, young spies, an embezzling estate manager, and a witch add to the fun.” —Booklist

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 03, 2015 – Cready plays to her strengths in this dashing, breathtaking, and extremely sexy time-travel romp. Serafina Fallon is a fallen woman in 1706 Scotland who needs a good man to help reclaim her fortune and her reputation. When she prematurely casts a spell meant to help her, she gets more than she bargained for. Advertising copywriter Gerard Innes is a 21st-century New Yorker with a knack for the ladies. He is less than thrilled to find himself in a distant place and time, with only the vaguest of memories of how he spent his first night there. Gerard's talent with words helps him dodge most of the problems caused by abrupt time travel, but nothing has him prepared for the fiery Scotswoman who sweeps him off his feet. As for Serafina, she's not sure she's ready to trust any man again, let alone a charming serial seducer like Gerard even if he is fetching in a kilt. The twisting plot makes a headlong rush to a delightful conclusion.

Customer Reviews

this story keeps readers happy.

I’m obsessed currently with highlander stories: how can you miss as a lover of historic romance? And when you bring in characters like Serafina and Gerard, and a whole host of secondary characters that aid or thwart the path to love.

Engaged to a rather despicable man, who then left her and stole a valuable shipment, Serafina is penniless, friendless and angry. She can’t believe that she fell so completely for Edward, and lost everything in the process. Together with her new friends Abby and Undine, and Abby’s new love Duncan, she is determined to use any means to regain the cargo and reclaim her future.

In this story, it is Gerard who is transported back, and his consternation, reluctance to participate in Serafina’s plan and his attitude and approach are well-suited to Serafina’s often stubborn and outspoken approach. There is endless bickering, these two are very similar in personality and that makes for great fire, and neither is particularly interested in a ‘relationship’ per se, so it works to fuel the moments as the story progresses. A far deeper and more complex set of circumstances than we initially understand is behind the cargo, and as our couple, aided with the help of several friends, uncover the mystery the story moves forward nicely.

Cready has built this world and the plot with care, what starts as a wild goose chase soon firms up and solidifies into a wonderful tale that feels both of the moment and in the past. There’s a particular modernity that having a time-traveling character adds to a plot, and this story manages to mix the two outlooks and approaches nicely. With a touch of steam, although not bordering on the erotic, this story keeps readers happy.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
