“My fiery lass, fight me all ye want. I enjoy it”
I have to say I really enjoyed this book, it is the first book I’ve read with time travel back to a much simpler time. This is Colleen MacGregor debut novel and it was beautifully done; the writing and the editing was flawless and the transition between Katherine’s modern thoughts and actions of everyone else was a great mix. I look forward to more in this series because I loved the secondary character and how they all brought Katherine in as part of the family. This is certainly a new author you should take a chance on.
‘And then there’s Angus. My mind always finds its way back to him – that beautiful, arrogant man. He’s honorable and possessive. He’s rough and smooth. He confuses me and excites me. I want him, and I want to smack him all at the same time.’
