ARC Reviews


The Elusive Highlander. by Ju Ephraime. Time Travel Romance. ARC Review.

He is a Scottish Laird who live in a world of Druid magic and ancient customs, hand fasted to the sister of his rival clan, MacDougall. Alasdair thought he was doing the right thing trying to bring peace to the region. But he is murdered on the eve of his wedding. Not willing to accept his death, his mother, a Druid princess, performs a geas to keep him alive. But something went awry because, as the last word of the geas was spoken, Alasdair is trapped in time where he wanders the earth for centuries. The only one who can bring him back home is his betrothed. He has given up on ever finding her until she walks into his office in twentieth century Manhattan.

Coira Ainsley is a happy-go-lucky young woman living in twentieth century Manhattan. Her job as a travel agent took her all over. She love the work she did and is excellent at it. That was until she follows her client into his office and finds herself in fourteenth century at Inveraray Keep in the Highlands of Scotland. At first, Coira thinks a prank is being played on her until she saw the giant, wearing nothing but a kilt and a studded leather strap across his massive chest approaching her. Not one given to swooning, Coira finds herself welcoming the darkness that come over her as she loses consciousness, without learning that the naked giant is her betrothed from another time… another place. Will she give in and accept what has been pre-destined or will she fight to get back to the life she knows and loves?

Coira Ainsley works for a travel agency that specialises in luxury travel for rich clients. One prospective client draws her into another life.
Alasdair Campbell  is lost in time because of a spell his mother cast when someone attempted to murder him. He has to find his betrothed to close the spell.
This time travel romance is a little confusing when they are in the past. Our hero is never really in his own time, and yet everyone acts as if he should be there. Our heroine is a thoroughly modern woman with commitments who needs to return to her life.
Caught in a time when Scotland is at war with the English is very difficult for a modern woman to cope with. 
An enjoyable time travel romance.
