After Dark Review of Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband by Melissa Mayhue

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Synopsis: "SCOTLAND, 1272. Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on.
DENVER, 2007. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day -- she just discovered her fiance with another woman Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.

But nothing's simple when Cate is trapped in the thirteenth century. The wedding's delayed, someone's trying to kill her, and in the middle of all this, she realizes she's falling in love with a man who can only be her husband for thirty nights."

My Review: I love this book, I read it a few years ago and enjoyed it so much I had to go buy the rest of the series. I just re-read it to get ready for the rest of the Daughters of the Glen books. The characters are great and you can help but fall in love with them. I am really interested in what Cate's family does, hope that is included in the rest of the series. So as you can tell even the sub-characters are great. The only thing that is stretching it a little is the fact that everyone seems to adjust to the time changes a little too easily, but its a minor thing when the rest of the story is moving along so well. I loved the ending as well, kind of surprises you a bit.

My Rating:  I so enjoyed this book, it was very hard not to take it to work and hide it under my desk. Its a great start to the series and I can't wait to read the rest of the books! I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!

Note: There is some explicit sex scenes in the book but can easily be skimmed over for those who prefer to avoid them.


  1. This one sounds cute. Who wouldn't want a Scottish guy to pop into their bedroom and ask them to marry him? ;)

    1. hahaha if I wasn't already married I would have to agree with you ;) and Connor sounds like a real hunk!
