Description from Amazon.com:

She needs a man-but only for a night What do you get when you imbibe centuries-old whiskey-besides a hangover the size of the Highlands? If you’re twenty-first century ad exec Gerard Innes, you get swept back to 18th-century Edinburgh and into the bed of a gorgeous, fiery redhead. Gerard has only a foggy idea what he and the lady have been up to…but what he does remember draws him into the most dangerous and exhilarating campaign of his life.

Be careful what you wish for… Serafina Seonag Fallon’s scoundrel of a fiancé has left her with nothing, and she’s determined to turn the tables. If she can come up with a ringer, she can claim the cargo he stole from her. But the dashing man she summons from the future demands more than a night, and Serafina finds it easier to command the seas under her feet than the crashing waves he unleashes in her heart.


Gwyn Cready’s Time Travel romances are full of action, adventure, sex and laugh out loud moments and this one does not disappoint.  Serafina asks her fortune teller friend Undine for help in claiming her stolen fortune.  The help she gets is Gerard Innes from NYC in the twenty-first century. Gerard wakes up in Scotland in the 18th century and is hard pressed to figure out what is going on.  Serafina whisks him away from danger almost immediately and the chase is on.  It is she and Gerard running from the bad guys and then she and Gerard running to claim her fortune.  The question seems to be if they will be successful before Gerard is taken back to his own time or even if they will survive in Serafina’s time. Peppered throughout the adventure is Gerard being the typical advertising executive even helping the tavern owner to increase his business.  As Serafina and Gerard rely on each other their romance flourishes.  Will Gerard choose to stay in Scotland with Serafina? Will it be possible? Will Serafina want to go with Gerard to The 21st century?

This is a light, fun time travel romance.  It is very sexy and very funny.  The side characters were introduced in Cready’s first book in this series, Just In Time For a Highlander. They are integral to this story but this is a standalone novel.
