Book Description:
When COLIN MACALISTER is cursed by the Faerie Queen and ends up in the bed of a twenty-first-century woman—who also happens to be the most beautiful creature he’s ever laid eyes on—he’s torn between anger and lust. Colin is determined to see Scotland free of English control and must return to the fourteenth century, yet he cannot forget the woman who haunts his dreams and stirs him with scorching desire.

ABIGAIL PORTER can’t believe her luck. After making a wish to find her soul mate, she wakes up to find a gorgeous man in her bed! Can he really be a medieval Highlander summoned by her Faerie Magic, however? It seems crazy, but when Abby discovers someone wants to enslave her because of her Faerie heritage, she agrees to flee with Colin to 1306 Scotland to avoid capture. Thwarting danger at every turn, Abby and Colin surrender to an irresistible passion. But is the magic of true love powerful enough to save them?

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
Overall not a bad book though it lacked something the others (minus the first volume) had. It seemed almost rushed and the development of their love story seemed to lack a lot of spending time together and more popping in and out of each other's lives.

Abby didn't feel fleshed out and we knew next to nothing about her besides her desire to be an archeologist and that she can't live in the 12th century.

Colin was a little more developed but not enough to give you a vested interest in the love story that blossomed in this book.

Not the best installment of the series.
