After losing her job as a pharmaceutical rep owing to an abusive ex-boyfriend, Joanna Martin is trying to successfully co-run a struggling tourist guide company with her best friend. She wants to maintain a professional façade to land a permanent contract with the local theme park Highland Life and Legends. Unfortunately, she has the hots for one of the owners. Grant MacDara, a time-travel transplant from tenth-century Scotland, is helping his brothers and parents run the park and protect the mystical Heartstone. He lost his true love and unborn child centuries ago but is finally ready to choose a new partner and that would be the feisty Joanna. Grant has old-fashioned notions about courtship and love, while Joanna is a modern woman to the core. From one absurd moment to the next, Grant and Joanna have the chemistry but not the compatibility.
VERDICT Greyson (Sadie's Highlander) never quite manages to partner convincingly Joanna's tough and independent nature with Grant's need for control and outdated macho dominance. Readers willing to overlook this flaw and withstand numerous ludicrous scenarios should have plenty of fun with this steamy romance.
