Book Review: Charming the Highlander by Janet Chapman


What’s the story- From Goodreads:

A feisty beauty tempted by a bold highlander’s touch… When a plane crash strands brilliant scientist Grace Sutter on an icy mountaintop in Maine, she finds herself alone in the wilderness with the only other surviving passenger — Greylen MacKeage, a sexy, medieval warrior who’s been tossed through time to find the woman he’s destined to love. Forced together to survive the harsh, wintry landscape, neither expects the fierce passion that flares between them. But Grace is not used to letting her heart take control, and Greylen will settle for nothing less than her heart’s surrender.

Favorite Words: “Courage is nothing more than having a choice and doing the scary thing anyway.”

There’s a time-traveling group of highlanders, a Druid wizard, modern women, a plane crash, and a baby. What more could you want in a book? What I loved about this book was it’s not just ONE highlander but a group of men. One of the warriors lost all his men in the modern times because they could not adapt to their surroundings, while another group stuck together and adapted together. They strove to better themselves, find jobs, and hoped to find wives so they could continue their legacy. I loved that the conflict between clans remained, but as the situation began to unfold with Grace and Greylen, you saw that it all grew into something much more involved. There are layers in the story, mourning a loved one, mourning an old life, and trying to find a way to go on with your life.

This is not necessarily a Christmas romance (although there is plenty of romance and steamy scenes) but it does have the winter season in it. I think it would be perfect for a wintry weekend by the fire with a glass of wine or if you so desire, a whiskey.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
