Renaissance Faire: Kilts, Highlander, Scotland, Highlands, Castle, and Return by Jane Stain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Scottish Time Travel/Romance
Book Description: When handsome highlander Dall takes Emily up on stage at the renaissance faire for some Scottish dancing, the butterflies in her stomach are not from stage fright. But Dall never drops his 16th century speech patterns, and there aren't any jeans or sneakers in his tent. ~Complete Romance~ ~Sweet and Clean~
My thoughts: I loved the premise of the book. A modern girl meets a Highlander at a Renaissance Fair. Love, happiness, time travel, druids all made it very promising for me.
The book was clean and did contain all of the elements listed above. I had a hard time getting invested in the story. It felt like it was a lot of dialogue that was presented a little choppier than I like.
Emily and Dall fell in love within a few hours. I do not have anything against instant attraction, but within a few weeks she was committing her life to him by travelling back in time. Her speech and actions would have been suspect in the 1500's. It just felt like there were some plot and research holes.
I did enjoy that they book was a quick and fun read. I liked Dall and Emily's characters. The friends that surround them are cute, particularly the biker dudes (you would have to read it to appreciate the bikers). They are a great group of men who add humor to the story.
If you are looking for a light read that is clean. You may want to give this one a try. The book contains non-graphic violence and kissing.
