Scotland, 1272. Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.
Denver, 2007. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day-she just discovered her fiance with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.
But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the thirteenth century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for thirty nights.

Highlanders, time travel, and faeries - oh my! Obviously, judging from my blog and previous reading adventures - all things that I enjoy in a book. But really, this was just a normal romantic adventure. Gets your heart thumping - both at the romance and at the danger. I can't say it was the best or worst book I've ever read. Just entertaining.
I do think Melissa Mayhue has the ability to put an entertaining story together - so let's not downplay that. Her characters were likable and somewhat realistic. I mean - how real can people be who are decedents of Faeries?? So the imagination is needed as well. The only thing that keeps this book from standing out is - I've pretty much read it before in another, or a few other books. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't really stand out outside of the fact that I do like to read romance novels, and it fulfilled it's obligation to entertain me in a way that T.V. just does not.
