It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here mostly because I’ve been busy packing and moving to a new area. Now that I am officially moved and starting to get settled in, I have a bit more time to post on here and I just recently finished a book which I was lucky enough to receive as an ARC e-book. You can buy a copy today as it’s just been released!
The book is Every Time With A Highlander by Gwyn Cready which is third in her Siren series. The first experience I had with her talent was when she penned Seducing Mr. Darcy which was a steamy, funny version of what could happen if you were given the chance to be a character in Pride and Prejudice. Just as with that book, it was a pleasure to read about the main characters in this book who are Michael and Undine. Michael is a modern day Scotsman living in London who is former actor turned Production Director who goes from managing stuffy English matrons in the 21st Century and dropped into the past of about 300 years previously to help the captivating Undine, a Scotswoman secretly spying for the Scots, who finds herself in quite the dilemma and her magic often doesn’t go as planned. If things had gone right, a real priest would have been dropped into her lap to prevent her marriage to a savage English captain who accidentally drank one of her love potions and fell in love with her. Instead things went wrong in the beginning but eventually get sorted out. It seems like a confusing situation to be sure but makes much more sense once you read it.
I have enjoyed every book I’ve read by the talented and funny Gwyn. She has a way of mixing in humor, adventure, love and steamy love scenes.
I have not read the other two books in the series but after reading this one, I want to go back and start from the beginning. Gwyn has an interesting way of bringing out books in a series without feeling the need to read in order though it does give the reader a deeper understanding of what’s going on.
Michael and Undine make quite the interesting duo who nearly miss their chance to give into the temptation of being together. I don’t want to give too many details away but I will say that both are fascinating, stubborn characters who may not have been born in the same century but find a way to communicate and Undine eventually realizes that it’s okay to rely on someone.
I really hope that Gwyn comes out with more books in this series and even if she doesn’t, I will read any other books that she does publish. She’s for sure on my list of authors to read without knowing much about the storyline. I will say that it’s a great book to add to your to be read list especially if you’re a fan of love, time travel, humor and Gwyn’s writing!

Well that concludes my bookish ramblings for this post. I shall try to post more once I’m through reading though it may be sporadic. It’s amazing how easy it is to get easily distracted especially where books are concerned and I have plenty to keep me busy for a while. I hope you’ve enjoyed my post and please feel free to drop back soon for more bookish posts.
