Review of A Highlander's Homecoming by Melissa Mayhue

Read for: Series Challenge & Mount TBR
Synopsis: "When Robert MacQuarrie was swept forward in time to present-day Scotland, he left behind in the thirteenth century a vow he could no longer keep—to protect his friend’s little daughter, Isabella. Haunted by guilt, he leaps at the chance to go back…except the fickle Faerie Magic returns him to his family castle twenty years after he left it. In Scotland, 1292, Isabella MacGahan is now a grown woman. Rejected by her family for her Faerie blood and uncanny powers, her safety depends on pretending that her magical abilities have made her mad. But appearances are deceiving for both Robbie and Isabella. Will the magic of the Fae allow them to find a true homecoming in each other’s arms??"

My Review: Another great book in this up and down series, it appears to me that I enjoy the historical aspect of this series more than the fantasy. I adore Robert and Isa in this book. Isa is such a strong, intelligent and quirky character and Robert is everything you can imagine in a chivalrous knight. I was a little disappointed that the question of the tattoo didn't get answered in this book but maybe in future books in the series. But this was a very enjoyable book to read.
My Rating: I loved how the females are the hero's in this one. A definite boost in the series when it was lagging a little bit for me. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!


  1. I'm glad this one was better than the last. It sounds like an interesting series.

    1. This series is just really bizarre, it has been a little all over the place and not completely thought out. I really think the author originally only planned one book and maybe the second book to be standalones but the publisher wanted more.
