The Blurb:
A mysterious Druid book and Helen’s sixth sense send her to Scotland in search of a missing boy. After being attacked by strange men dressed in medieval garb, a handsome, desirable hero answering to the boy’s name rescues her. No one is more surprised than she to find herself in sixteenth century Scotland. Unable to deny the reality of time travel, Helen discovers smoldering passion with a man destined to leave her.

Simon has lived his Druid life in two very different worlds, two vastly different times, and when Helen practically lands in his lap, he knows his life is about to change forever. There are enemies in California lying in wait for her, and an army in Scotland closing in on his family. Simon is the only person who can protect her. But when she learns his most guarded secret, will she still want him? Can Helen love a Highland Shifter?

My Review

           3.5 “I love you, my Highland shifter.” Stars

“’Tis easier to think with a clear head.” “Yeah, well, mine ain’t clear, kilt boy, mine is full of whys, what ifs, and how comes. Not to mention a heavy dose of ‘that sonofabitch’.”

Soooo, Highland Shifter was a pretty good read, but no where near as good as the others in this series. The reason I didn't like this book as much as I have previous ones is because of Helen. OMG was Helen a whiner. She couldn't handle anything. I must have yelled at my kindle at least 5 time "OH for GOD Sake's woman put on your big girl panties and deal with it!" 

“Back off, he-man. Clocking my boss probably won’t give us any answers either.” “But I like clocking my enemies. To tell you the truth, I miss it.”

Simon was great, I loved him. Sexy, brave and sweet. I love all the MacCoinnich family! We get to see what has been going on in everyone's lives years after where the last book left off. Simon is now 30. It was fun seeing all the new children. Helen got on my last nerve bad and it really took away from my enjoyment of the story. Helen really was my only problem with this book, the plot was great, and even Helen got better as the book went on. Just not fast enough for me. Still a good solid read. I am on to Amber's Story. Yay I'm excited about Amber's book!

“You couldn’t do that with claws,” she told him, nipping his ears. “You’re right. I’d rip your clothing off instead. Use that cat tongue to taste every inch of your delicious skin.” Heat shot to Helen’s core. “That shouldn’t turn me on.” Simon tasted the corner of her mouth and down her neck. “But it did.”
