Book 1, Highland Protectors - A Highland Protector Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The Highland Protector series brings to life four mouthwatering Celtic brothers in twenty-first-century North Carolina—where the lasses are anything but tamed.
Highland warrior Alec MacDara and his brothers traveled forward in time to protect the sacred Heartstone. Their cover? Owners and operators of a theme park called Highland Life and Legends. As the chairman, Alec has been fending off requests to film at the breathtaking property. It’s only because of the charming correspondence from an enterprising production assistant that he agrees to a meeting at all. That’s when Alec meets a woman whose lush curves make him forget, for the first time, all about tenth-century Scotland.
A lowly assistant for her sister’s motion picture company, wannabe screenwriter Sadie Williams is shocked when Alec agrees to let them film at the park upon one condition: that she report to him daily. Sadie’s sister always told her that their parents only adopted her because they felt sorry for the ugly little stray. But Alec looks at Sadie like she’s the most tempting creature in the world. And with his gleaming, musclebound body stripped down to nothing but a hip-hugging kilt and boots, Alec clearly knows a little something about temptation.
Praise for Sadie’s Highlander
“Readers will delight in the fiery passion that ignites between characters and they will relate to the varying degrees of family dynamics. The author beautifully meshes the past with the present. . . . An awesome read, Sadie’s Highlander can easily be read in one sitting and will stay in the minds of readers long after the last page.”—RT Book Reviews
“With scintillating sex and plenty of romantic angst, this novel is likely to appeal to those who like their romance on the hot side.”—Publishers Weekly
“Sadie’s Highlander is an engaging, fun romp that combines a very serious ninth-century Scottish Highlander and a sassy twenty-first-century wannabe Hollywood screenwriter. I highly recommend this thoroughly enjoyable and perfect beach read.”—Sharon Cullen, USA Today bestselling author of The Reluctant Duchess
“Lovable heroine, hunky Scot and an intriguing plot! What’s not to love!”—Bestselling author Barbara Longley

Swoon-Worthy Highland Romance!
Sadie and Alec…sigh, a swoon-worthy Highlander time-travel romance! It was different from the other Highlander romances I’ve read by this author as it wasn’t as humorous…it dealt with a tough subject, cruelty by an overbearing family member. Sad to say, I could relate to this and really empathized with Sadie. God bless Alec and his love for Sadie because she needed that in her life. It was truly a wonderful love story, full of hope and promise. And I was thrilled that the cruel family member got a well-deserved come-uppance! I received a pre-published copy of the book from NetGalley.
I don't read many time travel books, but the blurb for this one caught my attention with its sexy Highlander in modern day North Carolina. I was a little worried about similarities to the Outlander series, but thankfully, didn't find that. The story is well-written and it flows nicely. The characters could've done with a bit more development, but they are interesting - some more than others and some were quirky and humorous (Esme, in particular). Greyson does a good job of explaining why Alec and his family are in the twenty-first century and what their purpose is. Some elements of the story do require a suspension of belief, even for a time travel romance (Sadie's too quick acceptance of Alec's story, for one), and the ending was a little mushy. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the read and found the story entertaining enough that I would check out future books in the series.
