First off, I won this book from Goodreads Firstreads. I have to admit, I was quite surprised when I was drawn to this book. I usually dislike time travel stories and I'm not sure what attracted me to this novel but I was, and so I entered - and won. Surprised me but then, sometimes surprises are good. And this -was- a good surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The heat was scorching , the denial a good spice, and the danger an even greater one. (I do have to say there wasn't much action on the scorching department, but what you got was red hot.) The time travel was surprisingly believable and the story was enchanting. I wish I had a laird of my own, one as wonderful and enigmatic as Nioclas. (How do you pronounce his name anyway?) Brianagh was a wonderful heroine, proud, strong, yet wonderfully hesitant. It added just enough, other, to make this a fantastic story. I do have to wonder how their dreams connected them together through the ages and what, exactly, made them stop. I don't know for sure, but I want to. I really do.
