Brie is a gifted empath who spends her time fighting evil from the safety of her laptop—and fantasizing about the medieval Highlander she met just once. Still, her life is pretty ordinary—until she awakens one night consumed with Aidan's pain and rage. When Aidan suddenly appears and takes her hostage, Brie cannot believe how dark and dangerous he has become. She knows she should be afraid, but instead, she will fight across time for his redemption…and his love.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this one because Aidan, was the playboy of the group so far, and after his child was killed, he turned dark and cold. Though it was a little confusing because you know nothing of Ian's mother, or what had happened to her. And the fact that it was 60-70years in his time between the time his son was killed to the time that he had heard Brianna's screams for help. But once you get the hang of the time traveling bit its ok.
I loved the interactions between Aidan and Brianna, because he tried and tried and tried to resist her, he wanted to seem evil because that kept him going for his vengence on his father for killing his (Aidan's) son. But he just couldn't resist her after a while, and they seemed to make each other happy.
Aidan got his HEA, which was great, but one question remains with me.... What is up with Brianna's boss Nick, there is something about him. I'm dying to know but I need to get the other two books first.
