Kenna Sinclair's female family members are time runners, able to travel back and forth in time whenever they wish. Twenty-year-old Kenna gets a message from her older sister and Granny that it's her turn to leave 21st-century Kentucky for the 13th-century Scottish Highlands. There, she meets Colum Garrison, a bit of a hedonist, whom she immediately pegs as the clan gigolo and "Mr. Muscle." He instantly falls in love; she's not far behind. His pride won't allow him to marry her until he has something to offer in terms of property and wealth. She thinks he's being ridiculous. Their often hilarious fights are interrupted when Kenna is kidnapped and she must make a terrible choice to save Colum's life. It looks as though they'll never see a happy-ever-after.
VERDICT Readers of Greyson's latest series title (after My Highland Lover) will get a kick out of the repartee between Kenna and Colum—two equally stubborn characters—and root for them to make their romance work. The incongruity of Kenna's modern-day language and behavior leads to plenty of laughs, while the serious content has emotional heft.
