The Highlander's Bargain

Novels of Loch Moigh #2

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a huge fan of time travel romances. This enchanting novel is the second book in the 'Loch Moigh' series by Ms. Barbara Longley, and it is absolutely delightful! The story is one that moves at a very rapid pace, and is so intensely fun that it was nearly impossible to put down. Many of the characters from the first book, "True to the Highlander", play a very important part in this novel as well, but there are numerous new characters to fall in love with as well. I loved this novel and am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series. New readers to Ms. Longley and long-standing fans will adore this novel, just as I did.

Robley of Clan Mackintosh always knew exactly what he wanted in life. He wanted his clan position, to live a long life, and to be happy in his life. Oh, and to find the perfect wife. But he decides to go about finding his wife in a most non-traditional manner. After a rather impetuous visit to the local faerie, Madame Giselle agrees to a deal with Robley. She will send him to the future to find his bride, if he will fetch a certain item for her. Upon return of this item, Robley was thrown headlong into a crazy situation well beyond his comprehension. Landing in present times, he crashes – literally!- into Erin Durie, a OB-GYN nurse and future midwife. As Erin tries to help Rob acclimate to present times, he’s trying to convince her to open her heart. Yet, the games of the fey are nothing to be trifled with. As Erin and Rob realize that forces beyond their control are conspiring against them, can they survive to be together in either time?

Book Blurb for The Highlander's Bargain

Before he can settle down, blond-haired, blue-eyed Robley of clan MacKintosh needs to taste true adventure. So when the faerie Madame Giselle asks him to retrieve her stolen property in exchange for two enchanted tokens that will whisk him across the centuries, he jumps at the chance.

Nurse and future midwife Erin Durie is broke and alone, thanks to a roommate who skipped town and the psychic gifts that make relationships too intense and painful to bear. Then a kilted man magically drops into her arms, looking for a guide to the twenty-first century, and she can’t deny the attraction. But magical treachery soon throws open time’s portal once more—and puts a blade to Robley’s throat. Now Erin must decide where—or when—her healing powers can do the most good…and whether she can live without her handsome Highlander.

In the second thrilling Novel of Loch Moigh, award-winning author Barbara Longley delivers more of the action, adventure, and romance that began in the pulse-pounding True to the Highlander.
