Book One in the time travel, fantasy romance series, Highland Secrets!
She never believed in magic…
Claire McGowan, Scotophile and historical romance novel addict, finally saves up enough for her dream vacation to Scotland.
She never imagines she’ll get sucked back to the seventeenth century while running on the beach—that’s what she gets for exercising when she should be relaxing.
He knows with a harsh certainty magic exists...
The Fae have taken his brother—Laird of his clan. Duncan MacLeod finds a bonnie naked and confused lass. He’s convinced Claire arrived in 1672 through the Faery Stones—a magical portal he’s been scouring the lands for over the past six months.
At last, he has someone who’s been through the Faery Stones and can help him find them—and get his brother back.
Duncan promises to help Claire get home, even though his desire to have her wars with his vow.
Torn between familiarity of the present and what she wants in the past, can Claire help Duncan find his brother and get back to the future? Will she even want to?
My Thoughts:
I love a good time travel story, and C.A's story didn't disappoint. Claire is practically ripped through time, and lands in the middle of Scotland. She meets Duncan, or rather Duncan while minding his own business finds her, naked and confused on a beach.  And ends up taking her home with her. What follows is a a series of humourous events as she tries to fit in this new place. 
This was a fast-paced, steamy read and I LOVED the dialogue between the two. (Clare with her advanced wordage from the future and Duncan in Gaealic, and wonderful side characters. 
I can't wait to see what Ms Czarek comes up with in this series. :)
