Can a determined brownie craft a perfect match in time for Christmas?

When the Chief of Clan MacLachlan travels to the stronghold of his feuding neighbors to fetch his betrothed, she is gone. A year later, she is still missing. Making life more vexing, a band of reivers are stealing clan cattle, leaving behind destruction. Archibald MacLachlan determines to capture them and administer harsh punishment.

Though once in love with the man, Isobell Lamont refuses to wed her clan's enemy. After running away, she joins the band of reivers set on revenge.

Can Archibald forgive the raven-haired beauty? Will a journey through time bring them together for a Highland Christmas?

I have to say that I love how Ms. Hamilton continues weaving her intriguing story lines in book 3 of the Highland Gardens time travel highland romance series. This book is a fast paced novella including some additional intrigue with the disappearance of Archibald’s betrothed Isobell.

One star-crossed lover, Isobell, is being very stubborn and unwilling to believe that something she learned about Archibald was possibly a lie. I love the hate love emotion these characters have throughout the book but I really wanted to shake Isobell for the stubborn close minded female she was portrayed as.

In counter balance to that Archibald continues to love Isobell though he is very confused by what is going on. In spite of everything he tries to love her and protect her. This is a man that one would want to keep close to their heart.

This story is about lies, love, forgiveness and creating a love to last a lifetime. Oh and don’t forget the time travel. Loved how the time travel was incorporated into the story and who got to do the time traveling this time. What a surprise! This is a great story for Christmas.

I am looking forward to her next book to this series “Just Wait for Me” Book 3, Highland Garden Series. I am very excited on this one. I am pretty sure I know who the two people involved but you will need to read this story and tell me who you think the next couple is.

A copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

** Read my review of Dawn Marie Hamilton's Sea Panther at my blog
Dawn Marie Hamilton dares you to dream. She is a 2013 RWA® Golden Heart® Finalist who pens Scottish-inspired fantasy and paranormal romance. Some of her tales are rife with mischief-making faeries, brownies, and other fae creatures. More tormented souls-shape shifters, vampires, and maybe a zombie or two-stalk across the pages of other stories. She is a member of The Golden Network, Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal, Celtic Hearts, and From the Heart chapters of RWA. When not writing, she's cooking, gardening, or paddling local creeks with her husband.

Enamored with everything Scottish, it's no surprise Scotland is the setting—along with the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina—for Highland Gardens, a Scottish historical time-travel fantasy romance series.

As a member of Clan Hamilton Society, Dawn Marie enjoys attending the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and Gathering of the Scottish Clans, which take place near Highland Gardens's fictitious town of Anderson Creek, North Carolina.

A Jersey girl at heart, Dawn Marie lives in Southern Maryland with her husband.
