Katie's Highlander #ourgoodlifebooklist

The third book in the Highland Protector series, this book was my first by author Maeve Grayson. Her unique blend of time travel into the tenth century from our current times creates an exciting setting.

Here's a summary provided by Random House Loveswept:

An archaeologist with a zest for life finds herself stranded in small-town North Carolina—with a brooding Highland hunk who’s straight out of ancient Scotland.

Ramsay MacDara wishes the goddesses had left his arse back in the tenth century. That way he never would have met the gold digger who made a fool out of him. A loner at heart, Ramsay is riding his beloved horse through the woods near his family’s North Carolina theme park, Highland Life and Legends, when he hears tires squealing—followed by a thud—and rushes to the scene to help. That’s when he sets his eyes on a pair of long legs sticking out of the moon roof of a car. His interest piqued, the rest of her will soon arouse his greatest desires . . . and deepest fears.

Archaeologist Katie Jenson is on a six-month sabbatical from her job at Princeton University. Following the death of her beloved father—whose dying request was for Katie to live life to the fullest—she’s headed to a friend’s beach house in North Carolina. But a momentary distraction takes her off the road and on the journey of her life . . . with a sex god in a kilt at her side. Ramsay’s passion is the stuff of legend—and it just may be Katie’s most significant discovery.


I truly enjoyed Ramsay and Katie as individuals and as a couple. Their brief encounter leads to a quick wedding before the two of them really know one another. The author is fabulous at creating sexual tension and the book has more "heat" than I care for, but the storyline is fascinating.  There is much description of both the current day setting and the tenth-century setting, but I find the latter to be what I liked reading about the most. Historical fiction is my favorite genre because I love learning about times past. Maeve's obviously researched the era thoroughly.

I do recommend this book with the slight caution to those who don't like to read a lot of sex in their books.  It is an enjoyable read.  If you decide you would like to read this book, please consider buying it by clicking the Amazon link below.  I will make a small commission but the price stays the same regardless for you!  The book is available on January 22, 2019, but you can preorder now!
