"Short, hot with an unforgettable character for a heroine!"
Katie Stewart's accident threw her back into the past, during the medieval times when the Scots were at war with the English. Fortunately for her, a kind old woman took her in, where eventually, three years after, she met a Scottish border laird who eventually became her lover. Tensions arose when the enemy came looking for her...
Katie stands out in this story. Fierce, independent and straight-talking, she marches to the beat of her own drum. I've read a lot of books over the years, and Katie is like a breath of fresh air. No wonder Robert, the hero, is captivated with her. She's also intensely loyal to the woman who'd helped her, whom she treated like a mother.
At one point, I was also surprised to find her quite bloodthirsty, then I realized her character was so right for the time period. In a time when men fight in wars to protect the borders of their homeland, she was a good fit, a kick-ass heroine who dealt with the situations that life has thrown her into on her own terms.
The passion between Robert and Katie was hot and hungry, fierce and desperate. I find myself rooting for Katie to win the guy, even though Katie didn't seem to have the same inclination. She appeared to be a woman who doesn't have expectations, but was content to enjoy what she has at the moment. However, I feel that more sexual tension before they did the deed the first time would be good, as it would heighten the excitement for the reader.
I finished this book within an hour or so, definitely not more than two hours. There could be several reasons for this: it's short, I read fast, but definitely, because the story's captivating and engaging. I would recommend this book not only for historical romance lovers, but for anyone who loves to read about an unforgettable character.
