This is the first time travel romance I've read in a very long time, and I really enjoyed it. With this type of story, I'm concerned about a few things: Will it be realistic? Can characters from such different time periods make a genuine connection? And how is it possible for them to live happily ever after? Laura Hunsaker handled all of these issues beautifully in HIGHLAND DESTINY.
The time travel itself was very quick and smooth, so we get to the heart of the story right away. I enjoyed the premise that a modern-day woman, a descendent of a Scottish clan, becomes entangled in an ancient feud that only she can end, and she has to travel 200 years in the past to do it! There was plenty of action and suspense woven into the blossoming romance between Mackenzie and Conner, so the story moved along quickly.
Did Mackenzie and Connor make a genuine connection? Absolutely! From the beginning they had very strong chemistry. They were both solid, well rounded characters. Mackenzie was the feisty, strong, clever modern woman, and Connor was the classic historical Highlander we love - brave, protective, determined, and swoon-worthy, of course. And, the conclusion of their tale was fantastic!
I highly recommend this book if you've ever dreamed of stepping back in time to find your own hunky Highlander. I'm giving HIGHLAND DESTINY 4 out of 5 stars.more
