DNF 58 ar god I can t take any I m sorry I know people seem to love this book but I just can t CAN T So Damn AwfulNothing about this book makes sense I couldn t care less about the hero or heroine The plot is idiculous The MCs have zero chemistry The omance is nonexistent And on top of all that I have no idea where the Christmas part of A Highlander for Christmas is Maybe I just haven t gotten there yet Don What an unexpected surpirse It is a eally delightful book I enjoyed the hero s funny easoning very very much I even laughed aloud Very ecommended When a friend of hers dies she s given a sword in the man s will One night the heroine finds a hidden compartment and some sand inside than suddenly there s a very large very naked man in her bedroom She s genially terrified and insists his leave He takes the sword and his plaid and does as she asks but the cold and the fact he has no shoes bring him back The heroine a softy towards those in need take him in When she ealizes that he s not from her time she s shocked but it doesn t seem to marvel her as much as one would expect The hero thinks she s a witch who s brought him forward in time and demands that she use her powers to send him back but when she makes it clear she has zero powers they embark on a journey to find a way to send him home But as they grow to know each other they fight the sense of loss when it comes time to part ways The hero obviously ignorant of current ules and customs has a tendency of being arrested In fact the pour man comes into contact with the police at least 3 times during the span of the novel First for carrying a #concealed weapon and fight the officer after being tazered Second for illegally fishing for clams to make # weapon and fight the officer after being tazered Second for illegally fishing for clams to make heroine happy And lastly for stealing 2 eindeer from the local zoo because he things to epay the heroine s kindness with bucks It was certainly comical and the hero had such an innocent childlike demeanor
during even encounter with theeven encounter with the law I didn t particular find this book be anything special or uniue in any way It s your typical time travel omance novel but it had little to no conflict other than the hero s struggle to get home and dealing with the history of the scots as we know it It was a contemporary omance which means the hero and heroine mainly go shopping or go to estaurants stuff like that The chemistry between the two character was tame and it was never an all consuming passion They started out as friends and than t just sort of melted into a comfortable courtship I was a little confused about the sword as it s hinted In the beginning as needing a guardian but almost instantly the weapon is confiscated by the police and is never heard from again The whole story felt like one of those horrible b movies on the lifetime channel No substance to it just some good old fashion holiday funbarf I m a huge fan of Sandy Blair s I love her books in her Castle Blackstone series and am anxiously awaiting the fourth book when it s eleased sometime next year In the meantime Sandy has given us A HIGHLANDER FOR CHRISTMAS a heart warming tale between two of the most unlikely people to ever fall in love a book that will make you laugh out loud and then make you misty eyed the very next second A story that will make you believeIt s the Christmas season and Claire MacGregor s love life and antiue shop the Velvet Pumpkin has a serious lack of customers and the bills are piling up Her one bright spot of the season her annual holiday luncheon with friend Tavish MacLean Claire learns that Tavish died just before their appointed date and that she is his heir Christmastime is not one of Claire s favorite thingsAs she is going through Tavish s belongings she finds a puzzle box that she manages to open The next thing Claire knows is she s being manhandled by the largest naked man she s ever seen She doesn t know it WELCOME TO MY WORLD`Tis the season to be jolly but Boston antiues dealer Claire MacGregor isn't looking forward to a solo Christmas or cocoa for one or trimming the tree by herself But company's coming Claire is fooling around with an old puzzle box .Law I Didn T ParticularI didn t particular this book
