Description

Before he can settle down, blond-haired, blue-eyed Robley of clan MacKintosh needs to taste true adventure. So when the faerie Madame Giselle asks him to retrieve her stolen property in exchange for two enchanted tokens that will whisk him across the centuries, he jumps at the chance.

Nurse and future midwife Erin Durie is broke and alone, thanks to a roommate who skipped town and the psychic gifts that make relationships too intense and painful to bear. Then a kilted man magically drops into her arms, looking for a guide to the 21st century, and she can’t deny the attraction. But magical treachery soon throws open time’s portal once more - and puts a blade to Robley's throat. Now Erin must decide where - or when - her healing powers can do the most good - and whether she can live without her handsome Highlander.

In the second thrilling novel of Loch Moigh, award-winning author Barbara Longley delivers more of the action, adventure, and romance that began in the pulse-pounding True to the Highlander.

A Very Good Bargain!


After finishing "True to the highlander" I knew I wanted to know Robley's story

I was delighted to find that this book was just as cute as the first. In this story, Robley sets off for an adventure and meets up with Erin who is a 21st century career minded and college educated woman. They develop a quick friendship which evolves into a romance that defies centuries. Their journey is romantic, witty, clever, and magical.

If you like fun and easy listening Highland romances then give whole series a try.

Sometimes Fae can be a good thing, sometimes not.

Any additional comments?

It hasn’t been long since I listened to book one of the same series. The first book was very good, so I settled with anticipation into listening to this one. My readers, author Barbara Longley creates one hilarious read! And with time travel. I loved it!

It was extremely amusing Aaron’s reaction to Robley’s ‘modernization’. I loved how Ms. Langley kept me laughing, whether it was from Robley’s reactions, Aaron’s reaction or to my own seeing the ridiculous situation.

Madame Giselle is back in this story, sending Robley through time. Robley joins us from the 15th century. He had been listening to True for years telling about her home in the future. He needed to know of it himself, so what better way than through Madame Giselle.

Once swept into the 21st century, he readily adjusts. Plus he had his own personal guide, the very lass he dropped onto from the skies. Aaron is no ordinary woman, but one with a gift – easing people’s fears and pain. That’s why she was so good at being a nurse. She was close to finishing her mid-wife certification. Robley’s ‘dropping in’ so to speak was a blessing. He roomed and boarded with her plus she was to help him navigate the waters of a new world insuring she had enough money to pay her bills until she graduated.

What would you think if you were from the 15th century, 584 years in the past and heard words like pissed off, debit card, kidding, in the system, insurance, get out!, jonsing, a shift, going out. These are just a few of the words needing clarification for our Scottish hero.
With Robley’s insatiable need to learn he read one of Eden’s erotic romance books while she was at work. He was totally comical, starting to use 21st century vernacular with his Scottish brogue. Aaron, American, used it of course, plus a lot of words he had no clue what they meant, many medical terms. It really was quite amusing having him question certain turns of phrase and frankly had me laughing out loud. Not just a little, mind you. But guffawing loud enough to have my husband stop his work, come search me out. His comment had me continue laughing. I sounded a bit demented!

The story was one lively episode after the other, Robley learning of the merits of living in the 21st century and enjoying his 'vacation'. Aaron very dutifully taught him to make sure when he pees to lift the seat and out of courtesy put it down. (I kid you not!) Funny times ladies!
Robley had the means to return back to Scotland but as each day past, he felt less inclined to return. Aaron was capturing his heart. Some heavy decisions had to be made, how could he stay, how could he leave? And then fate with the help of an angry fairy make the decision for them.

The story line was fun, the dialog was hugely amusing, although events eventually become dire. All in the day’s work of a good writer. Thank you, Ms. Longley for the wonderful story.

Angela Dawe, with her Scottish accents, portrayal of Madame Giselle, dialog and timing in funny moments, and superb storytelling ability made this listen pure pleasure, binding reader to author.

Okay.

The heroine has worked at a Renaissance Fair for 3 years yet she knows nothing about the middle ages . What's up with that?

A Grand Adventure

An exciting adventure with passion and love entwined with the Fae. Barbara Longley has created an enchanting story in which she combines the customs of 15th century Scotland WI the lore of the children of Danu. Angela Dawes brought all the characters to life with her individual voices. I really love this book. I highly recommend it.

Time travel at it's best!!

I love time travel stories especially modern day to/from medieval times. I would highly recommend this series to others. Barbara Longley is a gifted author and I always look forward to anything read by Angela Dawe. I often choose a book because of her narration.

Good

Like always wish this was dual narration . He did OK job with female voice but would have been better to have female read female parts. Overall good story.

Terrible accent. Sounds like a Russian Count Dracula

Ok for a mindless listen but the accent was just awful. And the “Humphs” were so annoying and grating. Re-educate the editor.

Fall into my arms!

Since the first book, Robley of Clan MacKintosh has been on of my favorite characters. I am so excited that he has his own story where he seeks adventure and love. His canny wit had me wanting to know more about him even before I finished the first book in the series. The first book had a lot of turns, where it almost became too much. However, Robely's story is a great balance of dialog and adventure. He flings himself into the future and falls into the arms of a bonnie lass. His thoughts and emotions carry the story and take you along for the journey of a life time. The end is one of my favorites and the narration adds so much emotion that I cry every time I listen to it. You must start with True to the Highlander, but The Highlander's Bargain is one of the best books in the series. I wish this narrator had done most of the work in this series.

Irritating narration.

First you need to get over the manner of a shouting narration. tHen you need to get past the way the last word of every sentence has an extra syllable.
So way becomes wa-aay.
Past becomes pas-sst.
You becomes yewww.
Me becomes me-ee.
Here becomes her-rre.
She does do a Scottish brogue well, but her drawn out manner of ending sentences is so off putting, I couldn't finish the book and returned the second one I'd ordered as well. I recommend reading the books instead.
