For fans of sexy Scottish Highlanders who know how to treat a woman like a lady.
When someone changes history, affecting the future, Diana Montgomery, the most experienced agent of Time Weavers, Inc., travels back to 1306 Scotland to change it back. Her mission, to find the culprit and ensure a minor clan chief dies in battle as he originally had.
Diana is well-prepared to infiltrate the small MacPherson clan. What she’s not prepared for is Torr MacPherson, the ruggedly handsome warrior with a kind heart and a steadfast loyalty—the Laird she’s supposed to ensure dies.
Diana is a member of a group called TWI, Timer Weavers Inc. When they are made aware of something that changed in the past, but wasn’t supposed to change, TWI steps in to put things back to normal. When Diana wakes up one day and her mansion is pretty much in the middle of a slum, the group knows that something in history changed. She gets instructions from the head of TWI to go back to medieval Scotland. Apparently a Scottish Laird, Torr MacPherson, was supposed to die, but didn’t, and this changed everything. There is another group that TWI calls Disruptors and they go around changing history. I had no clue by the end of the book why they disrupt anything, but I guess it’s job security for TWI.
Diana is sent back to 1306 Scotland where she is to ensure that the Laird does indeed die when he’s supposed to and to try to find out who the Disruptor is. She sets herself up as a relative of someone in the clan that had passed and tries to stay inconspicuous. Unfortunately, she catches the eye of the Laird and starts to have feelings for him and he for her. How can she ensure that he dies when she wants to spend the rest of her life with him? She can’t stay in 1306 Scotland as it will change the course of history forever.
This was a cute story that I enjoyed reading, to a point. When I first began reading I kept thinking that I was missing something because the way it was written made it seem like there was maybe a previous book in the series, but that’s not the case. Because I was a little lost the story didn’t flow well for me at first. I don’t think it was ever explained how exactly Diana’s boss, the elusive Jules who only speaks to Diana telepathically and who Diana has never met, knows exactly when in history the changes are made by the Disruptors. Diana woke up and saw her neighborhood was a slum. Ok, but how does Jules know exactly which point in history caused this to happen? I have no idea. There are also a couple of other characters in TWI that were unexplained. There was one guy, Arthur, who “downloaded” stuff into people’s brains. What? It was nuts, and frustrating to not know what was going on. Why were these people blindly following this person they’ve never met?
The romance between Diana and Torr was kind of sweet but Diana was worrying so much the entire time it was hard for me to enjoy it fully. Torr didn’t want to fall in love so that was a big obstacle. Then something happens near the end of the book (that I can’t tell you about) and Torr gets so incredibly pissed at Diana I thought it was over. Of course I would have been pissed at her too, so I felt his pain. Unfortunately he got over being pissed way too quickly for me – I would have liked to have seen him take more time to think things over. IDK, maybe it was just me.
Overall not a bad book but there was too much of the unknown for my liking. I needed answers to a lot of questions by the time I ended this book.
