Secret obsession makes for the sweetest of sins.

Overwhelmed by her new life in another era with the Laird of Gealach, and the feelings that threaten to consume her, Emma determines she must return to her own time and a semblance of sanity. Having heard of a magical circle of stones atop the ridge overlooking Loch Ness, she manages to escape from the castle and the desire and intensity of Logan that’s held her captive.

When Logan realizes Emma is missing, he is enraged and terrified. He seeks to find her and when he does, he will punish her exquisitely for leaving him, and for inexplicably exposing his scorching fascination and adoration.

Together again, their passions are reignited and a new stunning level of sensuality and self-discovery invoked. But underneath it all, both still wrestle with their inner demons and the impending danger of angered clans and traitors among them. Revealing how they feel about each other could bring about cataclysmic crash within their hearts and the realm. The blade is sharp on both edges, but they know not which side to choose, for one promises sweet, decadent surrender and the other, irrevocable damage - and they aren't certain which is which. Will baring her soul to the Highlander forever change the course of history?

This the second book in the Highland Bound Trilogy and is intended for mature audiences only.


This is the second installment in the Highland Bound series.

It's been four months now since Emma found herself travelling back in time to 1542. She remains at Castle Gealach with Logan, and they try to keep their relationship on the down-low. However, when one of Emma's nightgowns is shredded, they know that someone is on to them. 

Emma fears that every time there is a storm that she will be sent back to the present, and she still struggles with keeping this secret from Logan.

While the first book in the series, Behind the Plaid, focused more on the relationship between Logan and Emma and how they changed because of each other, this one was more about what is going on around them. Here, there are outside forces that threaten their relationship.

I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first one in the series, but I'm still a fan and will continue with the next book in the series, Dark Side of the Laird.

I enjoyed the dual narration by Arika Rapson (Emma) and Antony Ferguson (Logan). I still find Rapson to be slightly nasally at times, but overall both narrators did a good job. Here is a sample of the narration:


4 stars!! I really enjoyed it, and you should put it on your TBR list if you enjoy steamy historical/time travel romances.

This book qualifies as:
